I love, love, love "Precious'" Gabourey Sidibe and it's fun to see her in another acting vehicle. I don't know about "Tower Heist" though, it's from Brett Ratner (!!!) who really hasn't done a good movie in my book unless you call "Rush Hour 3" and "X-Men: The Last Stand" visionary!
But the plot seems fun enough, it's a revenge heist kind of thing, here's the official synopsis:
After the workers at a luxury Central Park condominium discover the penthouse billionaire has stolen their retirement, they plot the ultimate revenge: a heist to reclaim what he took from them.
Okay, so the workers unite against Bernie Madoff (HA!). That should be fun no?
This one's from Universal Pictures and they're releasing "Tower Heist" on November 4th. Here's the full cast info from Yahoo:
Ben Stiller ....... Josh Kovacs
Eddie Murphy ...... Slide
Casey Affleck ..... Cole Howard
Alan Alda ......... Arthur Shaw
Matthew Broderick . Chase Fitzhugh
Téa Leoni ......... Gertie Fiansen
Michael Peña ...... Rick Malloy
Gabourey Sidibe ....Odessa Montero

2011 is Ryan Gosling's Year! See Him Duke it Out With George Clooney in New "The Ides of March" Trailer!
I can't wait for this movie! I don't know about you, but I'm really getting tired of summer blockbusters! My heart and mind are longing for great films, and thank God the Oscar season is almost here!
"The Ides of March" is one of those Oscar-bait films that George Clooney instinctively knows how to make. This time, Clooney serves as a triple-threat for he wrote, directed, and starred in the film. Impressive!
Based on the play by Beau Willimon, Clooney plays a newbie presidential candidate and Ryan Gosling (this dude's starmeter is rising every second -- he's in the upcoming "Crazy, Stupid, Love" which I love, and "Drive") plays his idealistic staffer. Paul Giamatti (Oscar-bait), Philip Seymour Hoffman (Oscar-bait), and Evan Rachel Wood (not yet Oscar-bait but should!) co-star.
"The Ides of March" opens October 7th and I'm sooooo there!
P.S. Do you know that everytime someone asks me who is my favorite star to interview I always say George Clooney? That is so true! I sat down with the actor for "Leatherheads" and he was a genuine, down-to-earth person, and very, very real! I adore him! Here, take a trip back to 2008 and check out my interview with Clooney for the Universal film. Oh, click here to see that!

"Transformers" redux anyone? The trailer presents the movie with the same shimmering sheen as the Michael Bay Paramount extravaganza right? After all, both "Transformers" and "Battleship" came from Hasbro although the latter's origin was a board game.
But this one's from Universal, and it's from respectable actor/director Peter Berg. And even Liam Neeson is in it! But already, many are calling the film cheesy, crappy, and someone even asks, "does no one care about content anymore?"
See, when you guys keep on watching films like "Transformers 1, 2, and 3," Hollywood will continue to give us cheesy, crappy, content-free movies!
Suffice it to say, not everyone is saying "All Hail 'Battleship." Me? I'm saving my energy until I see the film when it opens May 18th of next year.
Plus, aren't you guys excited to see Rihanna on the big screen?
Here's more info on "Battleship" from Yahoo:
GENRES: Action/Adventure, Science Fiction, War and Adaptation
IN THEATERS: May 18th, 2012 (wide)
MPAA: Not yet rated.
'Battleship,' an epic action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force.
Cast & Crew
Taylor Kitsch ........................... Alex Hopper
Alexander Skarsgard ...................... Stone Hopper
Liam Neeson ............................. Admiral Shane
Brooklyn Decker .......................... Sam
Rihanna ................................. Raikes
Josh Pence ............................... Chief Moore
Jesse Plemons ............................ Ordy
Peter MacNicol ........................... Secretary of Defense

When you are presented with a movie named "Cowboys & Aliens" you know exactly what you are going to get. Instead of Indians being the bad guys, the extraterrestrials are the ones terrorizing the wild, wild West.
It's a clever concept but when you are mixing genres you are entering a very treacherous terrain. In "Cowboys & Aliens," the western genre elopes with sci-fi and the filmmakers tried their best to find the perfect balance. Predictably, the western elements overshadow the sci-fi aspects.
