'Last Exorcism,' 'Takers' open in theaters

Hollywood Wrap with George Pennacchio
LOS ANGELES Director /*James Cameron's*/ eye-popping sci-fi action epic "Avatar" has already staked its claim as the all time box office champ.

It returns to the big screen this weekend with nine minutes of never-before-seen footage that was originally cut for time.

One of "Avatar's" stars is also featured in the new action-filled thriller, "Takers."

You'll see /*Zoe Saldana*/ as part of the ensemble cast in the fast-moving film. She's associated with the "Takers," a notorious group of stylish robbers.

Paul Walker, Idris Elba, Tip "T.I." Harris, /*Chris Brown*/, Hayden Christensen and /*Michael Ealy*/ are part of that team.

They're being pursued by a couple of devoted cops played by Matt Dillon and Jay Hernandez. The thieves plan for one last high-stakes heist, but find the police hot on their tales.

"Takers" is rated PG-13 for violence, action, partial nudity and language.

In "The Last Exorcism," a disillusioned minister agrees to take part in one more exorcism. But his faith is truly tested by the evil he encounters in Louisiana.

"The Last Exorcism" is rated PG-13 for violent content, terror, sexual references and mature themes.

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