Popcorn & Prejudice: A Movie Blog

Odds (new documentaries) and ends (“Wolverine”) . . .

If you go to “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” this weekend, you might want to lower your expectations and order plenty of popcorn — and be sure to stick around when the credits roll. Director Gavin Hood has included a couple of surprise clips at the end, which reveal a bit of detail about two characters. This AP story says that the two endings play on separate prints, but the print I saw had two post-credit clips in it. It’s a nice, sneaky way to end things, but you’ll miss it if you head out right away.
Elsewhere: Those eagerly awaiting the documentary “Valentino: The Last Emperor” will be happy to know that it’ll open in Seattle next week. It had dropped off the release schedule early this month, but has now suddenly reappeared and will open at Pacific Place May 8. It looks to be a good month for documentaries: “Outrage,” from the ever-audacious Kirby Dick (“Twist of Faith,” “This Film Is Not Yet Rated’), explores the world of closeted gay politicians who push anti-gay agendas. It’ll open here May 15, as will local filmmaker Deirdre Allen Simmons’ stylish look at the Seattle burlesque scene, “A Wink and a Smile.”
