TAKE TWO: Weekend First Movie Comings/Goings

HUNTINGTON, WV (HNN) - With the Academy Awards complete, the mid-March cinema in-between's take over screens. Award flicks are lessening; it's too soon for Summer Super Hero blockbusters; so Hollywood tosses a mixture. Battle for Los Angeles, though not 3D, dazzles with a special effects flick that's similar to summer fare. Mars Needs Moms (2D and 3D) has a family friendly sci-fic base and Red Riding Hood scares, but only to the limits of PG-13.

Meanwhile, Drive Angry crashed as the first 3D bomb. Gnomeo & Juliet has kid and family impressive legs, which could prove the case for Rango. Adjustment Bureau , Beastly, and Hall Pass are the worthy of a look hold overs.

MAINSTREAM: Red Riding Hood; Battle Los Angeles; Mars Needs Moms

LIMITED: None

SPECIAL EVENT: Real D and London’s Royal Opera House, “Carmen in 3D” , Sunday March 13  at select Marquee Cinemas.  Sundays at 3:30. The Carmen showing  ALTERS times for some other 3D features. Check show schedule.  Carmen 3D continues through March.

ON DECK:  Limitless; Lincoln Lawyer; Paul
