This weekend belongs to the acting community, as many of the new films feature a big name star (or six). Alright, thespians – you headline those films! And there’s no shortage of variety in tone or style: Denzel is serious, Alicia makes you giggle, Philip scowls, and Russell dextrously throws knives. Let us know in the comments who you decide to spend your time with at the Cineplex!

MTV’s Hollywood Crush debuted the poster for writer-director Amy Heckerling’s “Vamps,” which stars Alicia Silverstone, Krysten Ritter and Sigourney Weaver. Looking like a cross between the book cover of a “Twilight” knockoff and the poster for a ‘90s horror thriller like “Poison Ivy” or even “Fright Night Part II,” it does little to inspire an unquenchable thirst to see this film.
