Between the Academy Award nominated Zero Dark Thirty and the possible Razzie hopeful Mama theatergoers have a lot of options available right now if they have a Jessica Chastain itch that they have to scratch. It’s not unheard of for a critical darling to have a somewhat forgettable film released the same year as another film that has earned them a lot of praise. For instance, Jennifer Lawrence experienced that very situation with the release of The House on the End of the Street being sandwiched between the release of The Hunger Games and her Oscar nominated performance in The Silver Linings Playbook. What is odd is when the award nominated film is widely released one week before the head scratching horror film that the star would probably like to turn down now in hindsight.
