This week’s selections are quite the assortment starting off with the stylish Franklyn (amazon, review) starring the very talented Sam Riley and Eva Green, a film I hope to catch up with sooner rather than later.

If you’re looking to stay in the otherworld, Aino Kishi’s Samurai Princess (amazon, review) which takes place in an alternate universe version of feudal Japan, could make for an interesting double bill.

Trekkies will rejoice at the release of JJ Abrams’ franchise reboot Star Trek (amazon) which not only successfully breathed new life into the floundering franchise but also introduced an entirely new generation to Kirk, Spock and my favourite, Scotty.

If blood is more your thing, I’d recommend checking out Park Chan-wook’s odd little vampire film Thirst (amazon, review) which stars Korean superstar Kang-ho Song. If you’re looking for something a little less serious, there’s Vampire Party (amazon) which looks like an insane comedy of sex and blood.

For the arthouse fans, Jim Jarmusch’s The Limits of Control (amazon, review) is finally out on DVD as is Robert Pattinson’s film debut How to Be (amazon, review), a release that, considering the number of fangirls Mr. Pattinson has, should equal big sales. Personally, I can’t wait to finally catch up with it.

Wrapping up the week is the R2 release of Duncan Jones’ stunning feature debut Moon (amazon, review), a film I can’t wait to get my hands on for a re-visit.
