New Movies Opening This Weekend December 11, 2009
|Invictus is trying to run away with the money in the box office this weekend, but we’ll see if it can hold up with the competition. Here is a list of this weekend’s new movies.
Morgan Freeman as Nelson Mandela, Matt Damon as the captain of South Africa’s rugby team, and Clint Eastwood behind the helm = Invictus, the telling of the true story how Mandela joined forces with South Africa’s rugby team to help unite their country. Freeman appears to play a pretty convincing Mandela but I’m not sure what to think yet about Damon’s South African accent.
Starring: Morgan Freeman, Matt Damon
