It’s November so it’s time to see a month full of big hits. The month kicks off with Robert Downey, Jr., Zach Galifianakis, and Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx starring in “Due Date”, which is directed and written by Todd Phillips (“The Hangover”). Will Ferrell and Brad Pitt star in the animated film“Megamind” which is in 3D.
Toward the middle of the month, we have the hits that promise to become big blockbusters. Tony Scott’s “Unstoppable” looks like it will do well in theaters combining Academy Award winner, Denzel Washington (“Training Day”) and Star Trek star Chris Pine. The biggest potential box office hit will probably be two words…Harry Potter. Part 1 of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” will be released on November 19, 2010 and looks to be epic. Russell Crowe stars in “The Next Three Days” which is very reminiscent of the TV show “Prison Break”.
Thanksgiving has some promising releases with “Burlesque”, “The Nutcracker in 3D”, and Disney’s “Tangled” which is spin on the classic tale of Rapunzel.
My spotlight picks of the month are “Morning Glory” and “Love and Other Drugs”. “Morning Glory” written by the screen writer of “The Devil Wears Prada” stars Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford, and Academy Award winner Diane Keaton (“Annie Hall”). Academy Award nominees Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway team up again for “Love and Other Drugs” where Gyllenhaal plays a pharmaceutical sales rep who meets his match when he meets a free spirited woman played by Hathaway.
