Another generation has been born since Bridget Jones (Renee Zellweger) first stumbled around for love and then wrote about it in 2001, so it's no surprise that she's finally in the family way herself.

LOS ANGELES -- Sully, the tale of hero pilot Chesley Sullenberger, who successfully landed an Airbus 320 in the Hudson River in 2009, helped Warner Bros. reach great heights at the box office and left two Columbia films, new release When the Bough Breaks and two-time box office champ Don't Breathe, in its wake.

REVIEW: Mr. Church

posted: 09/16/2016 2:23 a.m. Discuss

Because a great number of the movies he has starred in have been lackadaisical and uninspired, it’s sadly easy to forget what a formidable actor Eddie Murphy is. With Mr. Church, Murphy doesn’t play multiple roles as he did in Bowfinger or Coming to America, nor does he change his ethnicities and accents as he has done in The Nutty Professor.

Review: Blair Witch

posted: 09/16/2016 2:22 a.m. Discuss

Getting in on the reboot racket, horror show Blair Witch relaunches the long-dormant brand, putting fresh blood in charge with director Adam Wingard and screenwriter Simon Barrett (collaborators on The Guest, You're Next, V/H/S and V/H/S 2 and others) taking over the reins. However, by sticking so slavishly to the original Blair Witch film's template, the result is a dull retread rather than a full-on reinvention, enlarging the cast numbers this time but sticking to the same basic beats.

First Blair Witch's shaky cameras shook its fans

posted: 09/16/2016 2:22 a.m. Discuss

When Blair Witch opens in theaters, it will probably play to a crowd of moviegoers who were barely walking when the first film, The Blair Witch Project, now a found-footage "classic," was released in 1999. That's fine with the directors of the original film, Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez; they have given the update their blessing and are credited as executive producers.

DEAR HELOISE: Using rolling suitcases to store and save your photos won't help if you have a tornado. Digitize them! Scan and save your pictures to a computer (with backup off-site or online).

Happy birthday. When you don't have the means to reach a goal alone, this is the blessing that will band together with others for a common cause. This will involve advanced training and the financial sector will be favorably affected by what you'll learn. Your love life will be anything but predictable in the spring.

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: I haven't heard from my two sons for several years -- no Christmas cards, no Father's Day cards, no emails, nothing. I know I was probably a lousy father, but shouldn't they at least try to keep in touch with me? My daughter does, thankfully.
