Starring: Kristen Bell, Sigourney Weaver, Jamie Lee Curtis
Director: Andy Fickman
Release Date: 24th September 2010
Ellen Ripley and Laurie Strode team up to …oh damn it’s another movie about a wedding. Sigourney Weaver and Jamie Lee Curtis play two moms. When Marni (Kristen Bell) realises her brother is about to marry the girl who bullied her in high school, she sets out to expose the fiancée’s true colors. Chick flick comedy that will struggle to be any better than bland.
Starring: Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Ryan Dunn, Chris Pontius, Steve-O, etc
Director: Jeff Tremaine
Release Date: 15th October 2010
Johnny Knoxville’s acting career hasn’t gone so well. Thankfully the Jackass series is one of the most bankable in Hollywood (both previous Jackass moves made $80m worldwide from a budget of $5m and $11m respectively) so he’s back, along with the entire gang. This time they’re doing it in three dimensions. Wee Man in 3-D? I’m there.
Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Zach Galifianakis, Michelle Monaghan, Jamie Foxx
Director: Todd Phillips
Release Date: 5th November 2010
Director Todd Phillips follows up The Hangover with this story of an expectant first-time father (Downey) who finds himself on a cross-country road trip with a mismatched traveling companion (Galifianakis), as he races to get home before his wife (Monaghan) gives birth. Think Planes, Trains And Automobiles.
Starring: Harrison Ford, Rachel McAdams, Patrick Wilson, Jeff Goldblum, Diane Keaton
Director: Roger Michell
Release Date: 12th November 2010
Rachel McAdams plays an aspiring news producer trying to save a failing morning show by getting control of its feuding anchors (Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton). Ford has been picking poor projects ever since Air Force One in 1997. This comedy-drama doesn’t sound much more inspiring. The movie is basically trying to be The Devil Wears Prada in the TV industry, with a young woman looking to make a name for herself by winning over the old dragon.
