Coming to San Francisco Theatres Starting Friday, November 2nd

Ecological disasters, Sasquatch expeditions, hiking expeditions, a hunting disaster, ties to Taliban, ties to Nazis, another Israeli Palestine conflict, a troubled string quarter, an altruistic maid, video game characters, Tony Bennett, an all-out RZA orchestrated kung-fu extravaganza, and Denzel Washington averting disaster.  What do all these people and things have in common?  They’re all featured in new films opening this week in San Francisco.  Follow the jump to what these films actually are and where you can see them
