The Laramie Weekend Movie Forecast is written by Robert Roten, creator of the Laramie Movie Scope Website.

The movie forecast is heating up.  One of this year's best films opens today, along with The Great Gatsby and Iron Man Three is a heavy hit.

A dramatic adventure film, Mud, opened last week to excellent reviews in the rest of the country.  Today, Mud, a film about a man being chased by bounty hunters opens in Laramie.  It stars Reese Witherspoon and Matthew McConaughey.  It rates a "B+."

The much anticipated new adaptation of the great American novel, The Great Gatsby, is not getting very good advance reviews.  Featuring hip-hop music and 3D, The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire is rated a mere "C."

Iron Man Three is an entertaining mix of action, drama, and comedy.  It rates a "B."  Going into its second week of domestic release and third week of international release, Iron Man Three has already raked in an astounding three-quarters of a billion dollars, putting it in record territory.

The best holdovers here from last week are Iron Man Three and the science fiction movie Oblivion.
