1. The trailer for Martin Scorcese’s Shutter Island. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio and based on a book by Dennis Lehane (Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone), this is the tri-fecta of brilliance. This movie is going to kick so much ass!
2. A sequel to “The Hangover”? Say it ain’t so! The enormous success of this R-rated comedy this summer has sparked sequel discussions within Warner Brothers. The leading men and director Todd Phillips appear to be excited about the opportunity of a sequel, but I’m a lot less enthusiastic. Sure, The Hangover was a hilarious and fun movie that almost everyone has enjoyed, but should there really be a sequel to it? This is just the studio trying to squeeze every buck of out of a current trend. But hey, I could be wrong and the sequel to The Hangover might be better than the original. It could happen.
4. Clint Eastwood’s new film, Invictus, has a release date: December 11. That’s right, smack in the middle of Oscar Season. Also starring Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon, this movie boasts a lot of acting talent. Needless to say, there are high expectations for Invictus.
