There are 3 big releases out this week however i have thrown in one wild card which i don’t think will get in the top 10 but i wanted to point it out.

The 3 big releases are action thriller from Steven Soderberg Haywire, then there is action drama Red Tails and finally the film that has the best chance of getting into the top 3 if not hit the top spot is Underworld Awakening.

The wild card is the one that interests me the most and if it’s opening in a theater near you go and see it and that’s Full Metal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos.
