It's a man's man's man's world. And while James Brown told us that "it don't mean nothing without a woman," what he forgot to mention is that she's probably never getting top billing. Or, at any rate, not this weekend. If we leave the titles aside -- "Iron Man 3," "The Iceman," and "Dead Man's Burden" -- there's still barely a female lead or a subject centered on women to be found, unless we're counting feminine dominance in vampire loving circles. The theater docket showcases superheroes, contract killers, rock stars, student protestors, psychotherapists, cowboys, and magicians and yet -- despite all that variety -- nary a one of them are women. Not that there isn't still plenty to love -- a solid blockbuster franchise returns, the always arresting Michael Shannon gets another turn at badassery, the Cassavetes family continues its industry legacy, and 35mm celluloid gets its due in a Western. So let us know, dear readers: what are you looking forward to seeing on the silver screen?
