Three new movies will vie for your entertainment dollar this weekend. The sci-fi thriller "John Carter" and "John Carter in Disney 3-D" stars Taylor Kitsch, the horror remake of "Silent House" promises to have you watching through your fingers and the comedy "A Thousand Words" with Eddie Murphy might have you laughing so hard your soda pop comes out your nose. Check out the trailers and then the showtimes at local theaters.

Check out the showtimes at the Marquee in New Hartford, the Rome Cinemas and the Glenwood MoviePlex in Oneida. Just in case you are curious about what all the talk is about the Oscar Award winning Best Picture, The Artist, is at all three of the above as well as the Uptown in Utica.
