It's Coming Attractions Time!

July 23, 2009


What film will you see with your significant other this weekend, prolonging your dying relationship with two more hours of mutual silence? Here are some options:

Director: Hoyt Yeatman
Starring: Nicolas Cage, Steve Buscemi, Zach Galifianakis, Tracy Morgan, Will Arnett, Bill Nighy, Sam Rockwell--in other words, people who, besides Nic Cage, you'd wish better for.
Good if you want to see: talking guinea pigs as spies, for whatever reason.

Director: Jaume Collet-Sera
Starring: Vera Farmiga, Peter Sarsgaard, and introducing Isabelle Fuhrman as Orphan
Good if you want to see: a convoluted argument against adoption; an ending that, from what I've heard, will leave you somewhat confused and unfulfilled

The Ugly Truth
Director: Robert Luketic
Starring: Gerard Butler, Katherine Heigl
Good if you want to see: Romance! Comedy! Misogyny!

Answer Man
Director: John Hindman
Starring: Jeff Daniels, Lauren Graham
Good if you want to see: Romance! Comedy! Jeff Daniels as the eponymous answerer who actually doesn't have all the answers!

In the Loop
Director: Armando Iannucci
Starring: Peter Capaldi, Tom Hollander, Gina McKee, James Gandolfini, Anna "MY GIRL Chlumsky
Good if you want to see: a Middle East war comedy of errors, of sorts.
