It’s Wednesday, so today I give you my weekly list of movies that will open in theatres this week as well as a list of movies that will be released this week on DVD.
I hope this will serve as a useful guide as to what’s going on this week if you happen to be near a movie theatre or if you’re looking for something to drop into your NetFlix queue.
Movies that are scheduled to hit theatres this week include:
- Bad Teacher (Comedy, R): Directed by Jake Kasdan and starring Cameron Diaz, Jason Segel, Justin Timberlake, John Michael Higgins and Lucy Punch.
- A Better Life (Drama, PG-13): Directed by Chris Weitz and starring Jose Julian, Demian Bichir, Dolores Heredia, Joaquin Cosio and Carlos Linares.

If I could only watch one movie at the theatre this week, it would be “Bad Teacher,” and if I had to pick just one DVD to rent this week, it would be “The Adjustment Bureau.”
