First up is The Runaways, the '70s band biopic starring Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie and Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett. The film features the obligatory sex, drugs and, of course, rock'n'roll, displaying the group's rise and fall.
Canadian director Atom Egoyan explores a warped love-triangle between wife, husband and call girl in Chloe, which stars the talented cast of Liam Neeson, Julianne Moore and Amanda Seyfried. The movie was shot in Toronto and includes keys scenes filmed at some well-known T-dot locations, like the Rivoli and Café Diplomatico.
For Bollywood fans, there's My Name Is Khan. The story follows Rizwan Khan, a man with Asperger's syndrome, as he embarks on a seven-year journey to tell George W. Bush "My name is Khan, and I am not a terrorist." If film noir is more your taste, Columbia Pictures Film Noir Classics II is out on DVD and includes City of Fear and The Brothers Rico, as well as introductions by Martin Scorsese.
Finally, Oasis have released their new music DVD, Time Flies...1994-2009, which is a chronological collection of the band's music videos, complete with Gallagher brothers Noel and Liam's audio commentary.
