Danny Collins is a little movie with a big heart. The titular Danny Collins is a 70-something ex-rocker doing arena tours in which he performs his big hits for audiences of screaming middle-aged and senior citizen sufferers of nostalgia – but things might have been so much better if he’d only gotten the letter John Lennon wrote him forty years ago.
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is exactly what it says on tin – a movie about a monumentally bad day, not just for Alexander Cooper, but his entire family. It’s a slight film adapted from and expanding on a very slim children’s book, but it is both funnier and more affecting than expected – in the old-fashioned Disney manner.
Disney has released a new clip from Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Let’s call it the ‘before’ photo. Check it out after the jump.
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day stars Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner and opens on Ocotober 10th.

Disney’s “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life—a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by one calamity after another.

Thanks to ever growing technology, we are more connected to the world than ever before – but we seem to know less and less about the people we know. That’s the subject of Chad Kultgen’s novel, Men, Women & Children, which been adapted for film by Jason Reitman (Up In The Air, Juno). Men, Women & Children’s first trailer has just gone live and it’s both poignant and intriguing.
Check it out after the jump. Men, Women & Children has its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Kevin Costner has turned in some really good performances lately – in films ranging from forgettable to enjoyable to delightful. His best – and the best of his films in a while – is the beleaguered but savvy general manager of the Cleveland Browns in Draft Day. Like Moneyball, it’s a sports film that’s less about the sport than the behind-the-scenes business. It’s also corn, but really prime corn.
Summit Entertainment had a bit of a no-brainer when they bought ad time for the Super Bowl – a little film called Draft Day. It’s the story of the General Manager of the Cleveland Browns who makes a crucial move on draft day to save his team. Draft Day stars Kevin Costner and Jennifer Garner and rushes into theaters on April 11th.
