This November is packed with big action, big laughs, and big sequels. Kicking off the month is “A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas”. The cast is back kicking it to another dimension…and that’s 3D. Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy lead the comedic cast of “Tower Heist”, which opens the same weekend.
Following week from the producers of 300, the “Immortals” hits theaters starring Henry Cavill (“The Tudors”) and Mickey Rourke. A film that can very well be a big hit. Adam Sandler performs double duty playing both the male and female lead in “Jack and Jill”. This film could be really funny or a flop.
Mid month is the weekend of sequels. The sequel to the Academy Award winning film Happy Feet dances its way to theaters again with “Happy Feet Two”. Part 1 of the final installment of the Twilight series, “Breaking Dawn” hits theaters too.
What’s November without Thanksgiving Day movie releases? This Thanksgiving Academy Award winning director, Martin Scorcese, directs a star filled cast in “Hugo”. The animated film “Arthur Christmas” answers the question: “So how does Santa deliver all those presents in one night?” Voiced by talents including James McAvoy (“Atonement”), Jim Broadbent (“Bridget Jones’s Diary”), Hugh Laurie (“House”), and Bill Nighy.
My spotlight pick of the month is “The Muppets”. Jason Segel (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”) co-wrote and stars in the new Muppet film as well as Academy Award nominee Amy Adams. Who doesn’t love the Muppets?

July is almost upon us, so what potential blockbusters are waiting in the wings? Two words: Harry Potter. I cannot wait to see this film! The trailers and clips look amazing and the book is awesome! Potter fans unite! If you haven’t read the books, or have yet to see any of the movies…you need to see this film! “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” is one of the best books of the Harry Potter series and the film is going to be epic (if done right).
Other films that will challenge for top of the box office, in my opinion, will include “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs”, “Bruno” starring Sasha Baron Cohen (“Borat”), and “Public Enemies” starring Johnny Depp (“Pirates of the Caribbean”) and Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard (“La vie en rose”). There are a few comedies and romantic comedies to look out for including “I Hate Valentine’s Day” which reunites the stars of “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”. Nia Vardalos has also written and directed this film, so I am intrigued. Heroes’ star Hayden Panettiere is Beth Cooper in the book to movie adaptation of “I Love You, Beth Cooper” by Larry Doyle (“The Simpsons”). Katherine Heigl (“Grey’s Anatomy”）and Gerard Butler (“300”) pair up on screen for “The Ugly Truth”, which looks like a cross between “Someone Like You” meets “Broadcast News”. Judd Apatow’s latest film, “Funny People”, starring Adam Sandler and Seth Rogan will be in theaters at the end of the month which looks to be both funny and possibly a tear jerker. What kind of summer would it be if there wasn’t an animated comedic cartoon by Disney? Disney’s “G-Force” in 3D will be premiering later in the month.
Two movies of note are “In the Loop” and “(500) Days of Summer”. Both movies were official selections at the Sundance Film Festival this year. “In the Loop” looks hilarious and “(500) Days of Summer” looks really cute and it stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt (“3rd Rock from the Sun”) and Zooey Deschanel (“Yes Man”).
