There’s a variety of interesting movie choices this weekend from an arthouse flick like Pedro Almodovar’s “The Skin I live In” starring Antonio Banderas to a creature feature like the remake of “The Thing.” Oh, and speaking of remakes, the new “Footloose” hits theatres this weekend as well!
There’s not too much I can say about “The Skin I Live In” without spoiling the very twisty and surprising plot. So check out the trailer below to get a flavor for the film.
Also, listen below to hear a snippet of my interview with Antonio Banderas as he talks about what it meant to him to reunite with his old friend Almodovar to make “The Skin I Live In” (swoon) I just love his voice!

Ready to ‘cut loose’ with the new “Footloose”? Herbal Essences and Paramount hope you get into the fun by uploading your own dance moves to this site http://www.footloosemovie.com/en_us/#/ to enter the dance “battle” with other Footloosers…but, it’s okay if you don’t want to give away your signature moves, there’s lots of fun videos of ..uh, “interpretive” dance to watch!
Also, you can listen to the audio link below to hear what the lead actors Kenny Wormald and Julianne Hough have to say about stepping into the iconic shoes of Kevin Bacon and Lori Singer and making them fit while respecting the original.

Lastly, if you’re a fan of the old “The Thing” and not sure about the new “Thing” then check out the trailers from both to compare. But, personally, I can’t help but wonder what John Carpenter’s version would’ve been like if he had the technology in the ‘80s that the filmmakers of the new movie have today!
