If you thought Kristen Wiig had the lock on this summer's delayed coming-of-age tale with "Girl Most Likely," you'd be wrong.
Kristen Bell has her own dramedy centered on a young woman who returns home in a crisis.
Bell's distraught character, Leigh, is nearly 30 with a college degree, but her "life hasn't turned out like I pictured," as she tells her parents in the trailer.
Her grand plan is to move back home with her parents and get her old high school job as a lifeguard back while she tries to figure it out. What she ends up finding, apparently, is a much younger summer fling.
"The Lifeguard," which has already bowed at Sundance, will open August 30.
Keri Russell's "Austenland" will open in limited release just ahead of "Lifeguard" on August 16, telling the story of a woman whose passion for Jane Austen and all things "Pride and Prejudice" leads her to seek out a Regency-era vacation for Austen obsessives.
And then there's the clip for the "Curse of Chucky," a straight-to-video resurrection of the killer doll that probably haunted your dreams when you were a kid.
Brad Dourif is back as the creepy toy's voice, and his daughter, Fiona, stars in this film as well. Don Mancini, the writer of the previous Chucky films that were spawned after 1988's "Child's Play," returned for the 2013 version as well.
In the latest installment, Chucky has found a new family to terrorize. The "Curse of Chucky" will be available on DVD and Blu-ray October 8.
