While Matthew McConaughey got the lion's share of the praise and media attention, let's pour one out for Woody Harrelson, who was just as good in a far less showy role with a character whose changes are much more subtle.

After last week’s deluge of new releases, it’s very nice for certain movie column writers to have a week with just one new release (that’s not a big-name release that people have been clamoring to see for months, that is) to write about.
In the upcoming sequel THE HUNGER GAMES: CATHING FIRE, audiences will be seeing quite a few familiar faces in this continuation of THE HUNGER GAMES franchise. This includes of course Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne and Woody Harrelson as Haymitch Abernathy. With the two actors returning to Panam, we get a chance to see both of their characters expanded upon from the original film.

Relativity has released a new trailer for writer/director Scott Cooper’s (Crazy Heart) upcoming drama Out of the Furnace. The film stars Christian Bale as an ex-con steel worker who seeks vengeance when his brother (Casey Affleck) disappears after getting involved with a local crime ring. The pic finally premiered at AFI Fest last week to a fairly positive if somewhat muted response, with many nothing that the pic is very, very dark.

As is appropriate for the first days of November, this weekend is kicking off the chain of highly-anticipated holiday releases with a film adaptation of a nearly legendary sci-fi novel, an adult comedy with an old-school spin, and a slightly less-hyped animated film.
In this irreverent, hilarious, adventurous buddy comedy for audiences of all ages, directed by Jimmy Hayward (Horton Hears a Who!), two turkeys from opposite sides of the tracks must put aside their differences and team up to travel back in time to change the course of history - and get turkey off the holiday menu for good.

Recognizing that if America is ever going to care about an animated movie starring talking turkeys, they'll probably do it while they're thinking about Thanksgiving dinner, Relativity Media is ramping up to the release of Free Birds this November 1 -- and they've just released a new trailer for your perusal.

Woody Harrelson excels at playing sweaty, squirrelly-eyed lunatics, and no one's better than Christian Bale when it comes to playing characters who have to go through physical and emotional torment in order to right a wrong. Put them both together, and what have you got? This fall's Out of the Furnace.

On paper, Now You See Me looks like one heck of a heist thriller. Featuring a terrific cast that includes Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, and Dave Franco as four magicians brought together by a mysterious benefactor, Mark Ruffalo as the rumpled cop hellbent on stopping their dazzling crime spree, and Morgan Freeman as a famous magic debunker who might be working for either side, it gives every appearance of a sleek, tightly written caper, with the added benefit of cool magic tricks thrown into the mix.
