This week's movie picks are 'The Legend of Hercules' and 'Closed Circuit'

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 or pick up at the local Redbox.

Movies that are scheduled to hit theatres this week include:

- The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box (Adventure, Family, PG): Directed by Jonathan Newman and starring Michael Sheen, Lena Headey, Sam Neill, Ioan Gruffudd and Aneurin Barnard.

- The Legend of Hercules (Action, Adventure, Fantasy, PG-13): Directed by Renny Harlin and starring Kellan Lutz, Gaia Weiss, Roxanne McKee, Scott Adkins and Johnathon Schaech.

- Raze (Action, Horror): Directed by Josh Waller and starring Zoe Bell, Rachel Nichols, Sherilyn Fenn, Tracie Thoms and Doug Jones.

- Tiger Eyes (Drama, PG-13): Directed by Lawrence Blume and starring Willa Holland, Amy Jo Johnson, Tatanka Means, Elise Eberle and Cynthia Stevenson.

- We Are What We Are (Drama, Horror, R): Directed by Jim Mickle and starring Bill Sage, Ambyr Childers, Julia Garner, Kelly McGillis and Odeya Rush.

If I could only watch one movie at the theatre this week, it would be “The Legend of Hercules,” and if I had to pick just one DVD to rent this week, it would be “Closed Circuit.”

In the end, let me know if you get a chance to watch any of the new movies in theatres this week or if you’ve already seen any of the movies that have just been released on DVD. What did you think about them? Which would you recommend? Let us know in the comments section below.
