‘(500) Days of Summer’ Heats Up on DVD and Blu-ray on December 22nd

You can bring home one of this summer's delightful indie surprises on DVD and Blu-ray this December.(500) Days of Summer will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on December 22. The single-disc DVD will be priced at $29.98 SRP while the two-disc Blu-ray with Digital Copy will go for $39.99 SRP. The film stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Zooey Deschanel and Clark Gregg.

This post modern love story is never what we expect it to be -- it's thorny yet exhilarating, funny and sad, a twisted journey of highs and lows that doesn't quite go where we think it will. When Tom (Gordon-Levitt), a hapless greeting card copywriter and hopeless romantic, is blindsided after his girlfriend Summer (Zooey Deschanel) dumps him, he shifts back and forth through various periods of their 500 days "together" to try to figure out where things went wrong. His reflections ultimately lead him to finally rediscover his true passions in life.

BOX OFFICE BEAT DOWN: ‘District 9’ Destroys Human Competition with $37 Million

With an amazing critical reception at its back, the humans and non-humans of District 9 ran roughshod over its box office competitors this week, taking in an estimated $37 million in its first weekend of release. Director Neill Blomkamp's $30 million film debut has already made its budget back in the first three days and it will be interesting to see if the film drops off much in its second weekend, with such great word-of-mouth and critical praise.

Last weekend's big winner had a pretty big drop-off in its second week in theaters. G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra took second place with an estimated $22.5 million, a 58.9% drop from last weekend's $56.2 million take. The Time Traveler's Wife, the film adaptation of Audrey Niffenegger's best-selling book, did solid biz in third place with $19.2 million, but the rest of the newcomers this week didn't fare that well at all.

Full Scoop from Cinevegas 2009!

Living in Las Vegas, Nevada can be a difficult thing for a movie lover like myself.  Yes, there are megaplexes on every corner, but the city still lacks specialized venues for independent films.  The occasional movie theater arranges a vacancy for a lauded title, but those theaters are usually occupied by loud senior citizens who clearly have no idea where they are at that particular moment in time.  There is  rarely a venue that brings together classics, documentaries, and shoestring budget masterpieces in one place so that true film lovers can "oh" and "aw" at the marvel of groundbreaking cinema.  However, this changes every summer when the CineVegas Film Festival hits the Palms Hotel.  After much anticipation, I devoted a full weekend to the screenings, parties, celebrities, and the Stella Artois beer.
