Movies Released January 20, 2012

This Year in Movies - Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Haywire, Red Tails, Underworld: Awakening open in wide release this weekend. The previous three Underworld movies have all opened with at least $20 million, including the 2009 Rise of the Lycans, which did not star Kate Beckingsale.
