This Weekend's Movies on TV: A Cinema Alternative

This Weekend's Movies on TV: A Cinema Alternative

I gotta break it to you, Buzz readers, the options are pretty slim for new releases in the theaters this weekend. The Savages is only opening in limited release. Awake, starring Jessica Alba and Hayden Christensen, seems to be trying to open as quietly as humanly possible... kinda like they don't want anyone to go see it? Otherwise, the offerings are the same as they were last weekend.

So, if you've already seen all the new releases you care to see, or if you're just not interested in going to the theaters this weekend, now is the time to curl up with some movies on TV. Check out my list of notable titles coming to a living room near you this weekend after the jump, divided into genre. This is not a comprehensive guide and the list also doesn't include pay-cable channels.

To see what's playing on your television, from Jason Bourne to Harry Potter, Elf to Zoolander,

All times are taken from TV Guide so definitely check your local listings!

I'm going to go see Awake tonight with my sister and i hadn't even heard about it until she told me she saw the previews but that was while she was in NJ for thanksgiving. I finally saw a preview for it last night, there really hasn't been much out there for it. It actually looks good and creepy.
