Box Office Preview: "World Trade Center" Arrives in Theaters
Another frame packed with four new national releases is led by Oliver Stone's 9/11 drama "World Trade Center" from Paramount. A trio of lower profile pics round out the weekend - Sony's family adventure "Zoom," Buena Vista's teen drama "Step Up," and The Weinstein Company's horror flick "Pulse." Despite all the new entries, Will Ferrell will try to win the box office title for the second consecutive time with his comedy "Talladega Nights" which has been racing well ahead of its competition since opening last weekend.

Itching to See "The Descent" a Little Early?
It's been out on UK DVD for almost a year now, so if you're growing a little impatient on Neil Marshall's "The Descent," I can't say I'd blame you. Lionsgate will release the brilliant horror film on August 4th, but if you happen to live in one of these cities, you can attend an advanced sneak preview on July 26th.

Although Neil Marshall, writer/director of the original "Dog Soldiers" (and next month's "The Descent"), won't be working on any sequels, horror fans should be pleased to know that there is at least one follow-up on the horizon. It'll be called "Dog Soldiers: Fresh Meat," and the director will be Rob Green, whom you might remember from the WWII horror flick "The Bunker."

Goofy New "Descent" One Sheet!
Boy oh boy did I dig "The Descent" and I would love for it to be a big hit ... but Lionsgate sure isn't doing the flick any favors. They STILL haven't given the brilliant horror-show a firm release date yet, and now they've unleashed THIS insanely loopy one-sheet to commemorate the flick's eventual arrival. Yikes.
