Coming Soon Trailers: Freaky, Jiu Jitsu.

Their releases might be limited, but the selection isn’t this weekend as 9 films hit theaters.

The bad news is that we don’t get a wide release film this weekend. The good news is that we get a ton of limited release films, all of which look way better than The War with Grandpa. So I guess we can go ahead and call this a win-win…especially since we get some crazy chop socky with, of course, Nicolas Cage?
