You Will Meet a Tall, Dark Stranger
What it's about: Woody Allen again paints a picture of modern romance with a cast of actors and actresses that are relatively or completely new to the world of Woody. That is a rarity in that Woody Allen tends to stick with actors he knows, for example Scarlett Johansson, who is conspicuously absent from You Will Meet a Tall, Dark Stranger.
What it's about: Successful PR pro Marni (Kristen Bell) heads home for her older brother's (James Wolk) wedding and discovers that he's marrying her high school arch nemesis (Odette Yustman), who's conveniently forgotten their problematic past. Then the bride's jet-setting aunt (Sigourney Weaver) bursts in and Marni's not-so-jet-setting mom (Jamie Lee Curtis) comes face to face with her own high school rival. The claws come out and old wounds are opened in this crazy comedy that proves that not all rivalries are forever.

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole
The film follows Soren, a young owl enthralled by his father's epic stories of the Guardians of Ga'Hoole, a mythic band of winged warriors who fought a great battle to save all of owlkind from the evil Pure Ones. While Soren dreams of someday joining his heroes, his older brother, Kludd, scoffs at the notion, and yearns to hunt, fly and steal his father's favor from his younger sibling. But Kludd's jealousy has terrible consequences -- causing both owlets to fall from their treetop home and right into the talons of the Pure Ones. Now it is up to Soren to make a daring escape with the help of other brave young owls. Together they soar across the sea and through the mist to find the Great Tree, home of the legendary Guardians of Ga'Hoole -- Soren's only hope of defeating the Pure Ones and saving the owl kingdom.
Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps
What it's about: Oliver Stone revisits greed and realizes through his protagonist, Michael Douglas' Gordon Gekko, that perhaps it is not so good. Given the recent economic meltdown across the world, credit Stone for realizing the potential for a sequel to his 1980s Oscar-nominated smash.
