The Week Ahead: November 22 – 28 2010

For more information on upcoming (and historical) movies, TV shows, books, conventions, paranormal happenings, and pretty much anything that interests me, see the ever-growing Measured Circle Pop Culture Timeline.

Movies

Thanksgiving is a big movie weekend.  Harry Potter and Megamind should do well.  In fact, I’m not sure that Disney’s Tangled (the Rapunzel story) is going to come out on top.  Don’t worry, Disney, you still have Tron:Legacy coming this year.
