Looking Forward To...

Release: October 12, 2012
Distributor: Sony Classics
Director: James Ponsoldt
Starring: Aaron Paul, Octavia Spencer, Nick Offerman, Megan Mullaly, Mary Kay Place, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead

Didn't even know this film was coming out this weekend! I've been excited about this movie when I first heard about it earlier this year when it premiered at Sundance and eventually winning a Special Jury Prize for Independent Film Producing. Now I don't really even know what the film is about other than the cast being one of the coolest ever assembled. And that's pretty much all I need to know. It's opening in very limited theaters so it might not be readily available for everyone yet.

While Smashed is the main film I'm looking forward to this weekend, there are two other films in my radar and they are both opening much, much wider. First is Ben Affleck's Argo which is already an Oscar frontrunner in many pundits' minds. It apparently has that great blend of being a Serious Film whilst also being a people pleaser. Affleck stars in the film which also includes Alan Arkin, Bryan Cranston, Victor Garber, and John Goodman. The second movie is Seven Psychopaths and the cast is pretty stacked for this one as well. Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken, Abbie Cornish, and Woody Harrelson all star in this dark comedy written and directed by In Bruges director Martin McDonagh.
