In Theaters: December 12, 2014

With Aamir Khan’s P.K. looming over the horizon, no new Hindi films are opening in the Chicago area on Friday, December 12, 2014. Action Jackson carries over for a second weekend at the Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville and AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington, which also holds over Happy Ending.

Starting Friday, the South Barrington 30 will carry Brahmin Bulls, an English-language feature that played at the Chicago South Asian Film Festival in September.

This weekend’s big new release is Rajnikanth’s Lingaa, which debuts locally on Thursday, December 11. MovieMax Cinemas in Niles, Muvico Rosemont 18 in Rosemont, and Cinemark at Seven Bridges in Woodridge are all carrying both the Tamil and Telugu versions of the film, both of which reportedly have English subtitles.
