George's speech impediment severely limits him in the numerous public speaking engagements he must attend, and leaves him without confidence as a leader. When traditional speech therapy fails him, his wife Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter) seeks out the unorthodox Li...

'Last Exorcism' Wins Weekend Box Office; 'Avatar' Re-Release Is A Flop

August 30th, 2010 9:50am EDT
Last Exorcism
James Cameron's re-release of sci-fi epic "Avatar" was a flop at the box office over the weekend, as "The Last Exorcism" held on to a thin lead over bank heist movie "Takers."

But the figures were so close, experts have warned the films could make a switch in the number one and two spots ahead of Monday's final weekend results.

Meanwhile, Cameron's 3-D special edition of "Avatar," which i...

They flip a coin to determine their fate, and after the coin hits the ground, they run in opposite directions into separate stories.

Both tales include the couple attempting to reach a critical decision while grappling with the potential repercussions of this choice. In the first storyline, Bo...
