The 4th of July weekend is officially here and it’s already gone to the wolves…and vampires. The highly anticipated The Twilight Saga Eclipse opened in theaters on Wednesday to record breaking numbers. The third installment in the popular franchise has been described as the best film in the series and features a grief-stricken Victoria out for blood, Bella’s blood! There’s also the M. Night Shyamalan adaptation of the Nickelodeon series The Last Airbender about a young boy with the power to control the elements (water, air, fire, and earth).

More upcoming movies and trailers below…

On an indie note, director Taylor Hackford’s new film Love Ranch starring Helen Mirren and Joe Pesci is also hitting theaters and centers on a married couple who opens the first legal brothel in Nevada. Doesn’t that sound like an interesting way to spend the holiday?
