'Salt,' 'Winnebago Man' open in theaters

Hollywood Wrap with George Pennacchio
LOS ANGELES /*Jolie*/ hopes to spice things up at the box office this weekend. She stars in the new action filled thriller, "Salt."

Jolie packs plenty of heat in her role as a government agent trying to prove her innocence after she's accused of being a Russian spy.

The film is rated PG-13 for action and violence.

Also this weekend brings something you don't see all that often a G-rated film. Author Beverly Cleary's best selling pesky third-grader named "Ramona" finally makes her big screen debut.

It's been a popular novel read by millions of kids since the year 1955. And now the author has finally allowed a film to be made on her popular characters, "Ramona and Beezus."

The film stars Disney channel star Selena Gomez, newcomer Joey King along with John Corbett, Bridget Moynahan and a small role by by "Grey's Anatomy's", Sandra Oh.

And on the independent front, YouTube fans will want to meet /*Jack Rebney*/, also known as the "Winnebago Man."

The famous clips show his crew kept rolling during Rebney's obscenity-laced mis-steps while making an industrial film for the RV company. Those out-takes eventually became an Internet must see.

But documentary filmmaker Ben Steinbauer wanted to know how the "Winnebago Man" felt about his unasked for celebrity and goes in search of the reclusive Rebney to find out.

It's playing in limited release.

And that's what's new at the movies this weekend.
