Juggling some angry Russians, the British Mi5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai (Johnny Depp) must traverse the globe armed only with his good looks and special charm in a race to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold.

Trailer: ‘Into the Woods' - Dec 25

Directed by Rob Marshall, written by James Lapine, starring Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, Johnny Depp, Emily Blunt, Chris Pine, Lucy Punch, Christine Baranski, James Corden, Mackenzie Mauzy and Tracey Ullman.

How dare they not put any singing in this trailer. Looks like a lot of Disney magic and not much of anything else. Still the cast is reason enough to be excited.

THE IMITATION GAME

The Imitation Game is a nail-biting race against time following Alan Turing (pioneer of modern-day computing and credited with cracking the German Enigma code) and his brilliant team at Britain’s top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II. Turing (played by Benedict Cumberbatch), whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British establishment, but his work and legacy live on. Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Charles Dance, Allen Leech and Rory Kinnear also star. The Imitation Game is in theaters November 14, 2014.

I ORIGINS

I Origins is the second feature film from writer and director Mike Cahill (Another Earth) and tells the story of Dr. Ian Gray (Michael Pitt), a molecular biologist studying the evolution of the eye. He finds his work permeating his life after a brief encounter with an exotic young woman (Astrid Bergès-Frisbey) who slips away from him. As his research continues years later with his lab partner Karen (Brit Marling), they make a stunning scientific discovery that has far reaching implications and complicates both his scientific and spiritual beliefs. Traveling half way around the world, he risks everything he has ever known to validate his theory.

I am seeing ioriginsmovie tonight and I am very excited! I’m a fan of both Michael Pitt and Brit Marling, and I enjoyed Another Earth, so I am definitely looking forward to this one.

LAGGIES

Keira Knightley, Sam Rockwell and Chloë Grace Moretz star in this dramedy about a woman stuck in permanent adolescence who lies to her fiancé about going on a retreat but spends this time hanging out with her teenage friends instead. Directed by Lynn Shelton (Your Sister’s Sister, Touchy Feely), for the most part Laggies seems like a predictable but far more entertaining version of The Lifeguard. Probably worth a look.In theaters September 2014.
