The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty
Though Ben Stiller is no stranger to directing films, The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty may be his most dramatic effort yet. The film has this combination of fantasy and reality, and is like we are watching some sort of day dream come to life. The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty also stars Sean Penn, Kristen Wiig and Adam Scott, and opens in theaters on Christmas.
One of the greatest crimes to commit is the hustle, and David O’Russell’s follow up to Silver Linings Playbook will follow that idea. American Hustle stars Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, and Jeremy Renner. American Hustle opens in theaters on December 13.
Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa
Jackass antics with a geriatric twist. Johnny Knoxville stars as Irving Zisman in Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa. Paramount releases Bad Grandpa on October 25.
Machete (Danny Trejo) is back, and this time he is helping the President of the United States (Charlie Sheen) stop an evil terrorist (Mel Gibson), and a his assassins (Sofia Vergara, Vanessa Hudgens, Antonio Banderas, and Lady Gaga in disguise as Cuba Gooding Jr. – yeah it gets that weird).
