NOW PLAYING IN CINEMAS

This week's premieres


Skeleton Key(Kľúč) - Thriller by Iain Softley. Caroline (Kate Hudson) takes a job caring for Ben Devereaux (John Hurt), a man preparing to die in the dilapidated Louisiana mansion he shares with his wife Violet (Gena Rowlands). While exploring the house, Caroline discovers a room full of items used for voodoo rituals. She soon realizes that she's entered a world in which black magic lurks behind every corner.


Bewitched (Moja krásna čarodejnica) - Comedy by Nora Ephron. Veteran romantic comedy writer/director Nora Ephron (Sleepless in Seattle, You've Got Mail) makes a big-screen adaptation of the classic television show about a housewife who's secretly a witch. Will Ferrell plays Jack Wyatt, a fading actor who agrees to star in a big-screen adaptation of the TV show. When casting the role of Samantha, the housewife/witch in question, Jack and the producers unwittingly cast a real-life witch, Isabel (Nicole Kidman). Michael Caine, Shirley MacLaine, and Jason Schwartzman also star.


Other movies playing


Charlie and the Chocolate Factory(Charlie a továreň na čokoládu) - Fantasy by Tim Burton. Roald Dahl's classic book gets its second film adaptation, with Johnny Depp taking over the Willy Wonka role immortalized by Gene Wilder nearly 35 years ago. Burton has said repeatedly that his movie draws its inspiration entirely from the book - and not from the previous film; thus, young Charlie (Freddie Highmore) has his adventure in a chocolate factory of exquisite detail. When Charlie and four other lucky winners get a chance to tour the top secret factory, they go through a series of obstacles and tests that teach them as much about themselves as the strange ways of the reclusive Willy Wonka.
