Jennifer’s Body

Stars: Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfried, Adam Brody

What it’s about: Megan Fox portrays a demon who is set to wreak havoc on a high school. Fox’s character is a true Black Widow with an insatiable desire to hook up with - then kill - her mates.

SheKnows movie fact: Jennifer’s Body is written by Juno's Oscar-winner Diablo Cody, who felt the horror film genre needed a feminine touch. With director Karyn Kusama at the helm, Jennifer’s Body achieves that goal on many levels.

Jennifer’s Body trailer:

The Burning Plain

Stars: Charlize Theron, Kim Basinger

What it’s about: One of those gripping films that exist with parallel storylines. Charlize Theron is the daughter and Kim Basinger is the mom who come to grips with life after trying to move past the daughter’s difficult childhood.

SheKnows movie fact: Theron is garnering serious Oscar buzz for her powerful performance.

Fall films: quality & quantity


Stars: Juliette Binoche

The Boys Are Back

Capitalism: A Love Story

Stars: Michael Moore and his usual documentary comic commentary

What it’s about: The filmmaker behind the issues of the day, whether it 9/11 (Fahrenheit 9/11) and the current topic of the day, health care (Sicko), Moore is a lightning rod of political discussion regardless of which side of the political aisle you reside. Moore is calling Capitalism: A Love Story the mother lode of his film career because of its subject of capitalism lies at the heart of every other issue he has or ever will cover.

SheKnows movie fact: The current economic crash and crisis began weeks into Moore’s turning his cameras on Wall Street. Talk about timing!

Coco Before Chanel

Stars: Audrey Tautou

What it’s about: What was Coco Chanel like before Chanel was Chanel? French superstar actress Audrey Tautou could not be more of a perfect choice to play the fashion icon.

SheKnows movie fact: Don’t miss our exclusive video interview with Tautuo September 16.
