Director: Judd Apatow
Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, Megan Fox
(Opens Dec. 21st) Finally, Judd Apatow’s better half gets to shine – because she wasn’t given the chance to in Knocked Up. Expanding on the lives of Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) from Knocked Up, this romantic comedy is about how relationships can change during the course of a marriage. Combine the director of The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up with the producers of Bridesmaids and you have the makings of a fun-loving film that brings laughter to real life issues.
On the Road
Director: Walter Salles
Dean Moriarty, Sal Paradise, Kristen Stewart
(Opens Dec. 21st) This film adaptation stays somewhat true to the source material. Based on Jack Kerouac’s critically acclaimed novel about his own travel experiences in the late 1940s, On the Road features some morally ambiguous moments between two friends and one wife. Arguably one of Kristen Stewarts racier roles, this is quite a step away from her character as Bella on Twilight.
The Weinstein Company
Director: Quentin Tarantino
Jamie Foxx, Samuel L. Jackson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz
(Opens Christmas Day) Leo’s villainous performance here outshines Waltz’s in Inglourious Basterds. A bounty hunter searches for the elusive Brittle brothers and turns to the one man who has seen their faces––a freed slave named Django. In return for his services, the bounty hunter agrees to help Django find his wife, who has been sold into slavery. Filled with action, western themes, the injustices of slavery and the prices of sacrifice, this Quentin Tarantino film won’t disappoint.
