Before we get to this week's preview and predictions, the astute of you who have been around for a while may be realize that on April 1, 2003, the Weekend Warrior column made its ComingSoon.net debut. The column's changed a little bit over the years, and who knows? Maybe it will change again soon, but I just want to quickly thank everyone who has stuck around for 11 years of my rambling and give an anniversary shout-out and thanks to Mirko Parlevliet, the site's editor-in-chief, who has diligently edited every single one of these columns even when they got ridiculously long.
As far as what most of you came here for, there should be absolutely no question this weekend figuring out what will be #1 because Marvel Studios are using the first weekend of April to release their ninth movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier
(Marvel Studios/Disney), bringing Chris Evans back as Steve Rogers, joined by Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow and Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury, both from previous Marvel hits, and joined by the likes of Anthony Mackie as The Falcon, Sebastian Stan, Robert Redford and more.
This week's "CHOSEN ONE" is Richard Shepard's Dom Hemingway
(Fox Searchlight), starring Jude Law, Richard E. Grant and Demian Bichir.
