IFP's 20th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards - ArrivalsLooking for a new movie this weekend? Oscar-winner Hilary Swank is back in “The Resident” – the edge-of-your-seat thriller set in Brooklyn, New York as Juliet, a beautiful young doctor starting her new life after separating from her husband. After finding a stunning spacious loft apartment, which seems too good to be true, mysterious things begin to happen which make her believe that she is not alone. Juliet soon discovers the unthinkable – someone “is” watching. The movie co-stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan (“Grey’s Anatomy” and “Watchmen”) and Christopher Lee (“Lord of the Rings” and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”).

While there are twists aplenty in “The Resident” the biggest twist comes from where the movie premieres. Not only is “The Resident” premiering in a theater near you, it is also premiering on Dish Network Pay-Per-View. If you are a Dish subscriber you can see “The Resident” from the comfort of your own living room. “The Resident” is on Dish Network Pay-Per-View today through February 28th in both standard and high definition. Popcorn not included.

What do you think about having the option of watching first-run movies “without” going to the movie theater? Be sure to add a comment. You can also send your comments via email or Facebook. Happy movie going!
