Broken Embraces
Stars: Penelope Cruz, Blanca Portillo
What it's about: A man writes, lives and loves in darkness. Fourteen years before, he was in a brutal car crash on the island of Lanzarote. In the accident, he not only lost his sight; he also lost Lena, the love of his life. This man uses two names: Harry Caine, a playful pseudonym with which he signs his literary works, stories and scripts, and Mateo Blanco, his real name, with which he lives and signs the films he directs. After the accident, Mateo Blanco reduces himself to his pseudonym, Harry Caine. If he can't direct films, he can survive only with the idea that Mateo Blanco died on Lanzarote with his beloved Lena.
SheKnows fun fact: Penelope Cruz is one of those international stars who never forgets the cinematic world from which she arose before she won Oscar gold. Broken Embraces is her latest Spanish-language film in a long line that weaves through films such as the upcoming Nine.

Planet 51
Stars: Dwayne Johnson, Jessica Biel, Gary Oldman, Justin Long, Seann William Scott
What it's about: Planet 51 is an alien invasion film in which those arriving unannounced are us humans! American astronaut Captain Charles Chuck Baker arrives on Planet 51 believing that he is the first to do so. To his surprise, he finds that this planet is inhabited by little green people who are happily living in a white-picket-fence world reminiscent of a cheerfully innocent 1950s America. Their only fear is that the planet will be overrun by alien invaders... like Chuck.

Old Dogs
Stars: John Travolta, Robin Williams
What it's about: On the verge of their very biggest business deal, two best friends -- an unlucky-in-love divorcee (Williams) and a fun-loving bachelor (Travolta) -- have their lives turned upside down when they're unexpectedly charged with the care of 7-year-old twins. The not-so-kid-savvy bachelors stumble in their efforts to take care of the twins (newcomers Ella Bleu Travolta and Conner Rayburn), leading to one debacle after another, and perhaps to a newfound understanding of what's really important in life.
SheKnows fun fact: Travolta's daughter, Ella Bleu, makes her feature-film debut as one of the twins. Travolta's wife, Kelly Preston, also stars, marking the first time the couple has appeared in the same film in more than 20 years.
