Not impressed with movies this weekend – I think Ghostbusters, Kung Fu Panda and Dune will do very well.

I never thought I’d see this, but Sean Penn and Mike Tyson are starring in a movie together that opens this weekend:  Asphalt City follows a young paramedic assigned to the NYC night shift with an uncompromising and seasoned partner played by Penn. The dark nights reveal a city in crisis, as each 911 call is often dangerous and uncertain, putting their lives on the line every day to help others. In theaters only at this time.
