New Flicks

Catch and Release
She's about to discover something new.
Genres: Comedy / Romance
Director: Susannah Grant
Distributors: Sony Pictures
Starring: Jennifer Garner, Timothy Olyphant, Juliette Lewis, Sam Jaeger, Fiona Shaw

After the sudden death of her fiancé, Gray Wheeler finds comfort in the company of his friends: lighthearted and comic Sam, hyper-responsible Dennis, and, oddly enough, his old childhood buddy Fritz, an irresponsible playboy whom she'd previously pegged as one of the least reliable people in the world. As secrets about her supposedly perfect fiancé emerge, Gray comes to see new sides of the men she thought she knew, and at the same time, finds herself drawn to the last man she ever expected to fall for.


Epic Movie
Things are about to get a little different.
Genre: Adventure / Comedy
Director: Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer
Distributors: 20th Century Fox
Starring: Kal Penn, Adam Campbell, Jennifer Coolidge, Jayma Mays, Faune Chambers

The story centres on four not-so-young orphans: one raised by a curator at the Louvre (where an albino assassin lurks), another a refugee from Mexican "libre" wrestling, the third a recent victim of snakes on her plane, and the fourth a "normal" resident of a mutant "X" community. The hapless quartet visits a chocolate factory, where they stumble into an enchanted wardrobe that transports them to the land of Gnamia (with a "G"). There they meet a flamboyant pirate captain and earnest students of wizardry--and join forces with, among others, a wise-but-frisky lion to defeat the evil White Bitch of Gnarnia.
