Harrison Ford’s new comedy, “Morning Glory,” comes with a bevy of Hollywood heavyweights, both in front of and behind the camera.
The tale of a failing morning news program is directed by “Notting Hill’s” Roger Michell, produced by “Star Trek’s” J.J. Abrams and is written by Aline Brosh McKenna, who also wrote “The Devil Wears Prada.”
As for the famous faces sharing the big screen with Ford, Rachel McAdams plays an eager TV news producer trying to pull her morning ratings out of the dumpster, while Patrick Wilson star's as McAdams' love interest. Oscar winner Diane Keaton plays Ford’s polar opposite co-anchor. “Morning Glory” opens in theaters nationwide this November.
If you ask funnyman Steve Carell, the truly crude, obnoxious and downright deplorable people of the world just don’t get enough credit. He hopes his new animated feature, “Despicable Me,” changes all that.
Carell lends his voice to the lead character, “Gru,” who has his wicked sights set on stealing the moon. All is going according to plan until the planet’s biggest supervillain meets his biggest challenge: three little orphaned girls who need a dad. Other famous voices in the movie include Russell Brand, Jason Segel, Kristen Wiig, Miranda Cosgrove and Julie Andrews. Things get “Despicable” in theaters July 9th.
If you’re one of the moviegoers who helped Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher’s “Killers” earn 16 million at the box office this past weekend, then you might also be interested in knowing about Heigl’s next movie.
In “Life as We Know It,” the Emmy-winning actress stars opposite Josh Duhamel as an unlikely couple who must set their differences aside in order to raise their mutual goddaughter, Sophie. “Life as We Know It” opens in theaters this October.
