"50/50," the new cancer comedy starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen, is probably as good a bet as any to finish first among this weekend's crop of new releases expected to open Friday (Sept. 30) in New Orleans-area theaters. But by no means is it the only new movie from which to choose. Some six new films are on tap. Here's the low-down on each:
