Seems like it’s limited release trailer day here at Reel Goddess HQ. A few of these this week only have limited run release dates, but fear not, a couple of others are wide release. Scuttlebutt is that we’re supposed to see a trailer for The Avengers some time next week so be on the lookout for that. I’ll post it as soon as it’s released. In the meantime, check out this week’s offerings over a nice cup o’ Joe.
Another Happy Day
Ellen Barkin stars in this film about a woman who has to face her wildly dysfunctional family at her estranged son’s wedding. On the guest list are her snarky sisters, her ex-husband and his current wife, her three other troubled kids and her parents. It enough to drive anybody to drink that’s for sure. This film has a pretty decent cast. Aside from Barkin is Demi Moore, Thomas Hayden Church, Ellen Burstyn and Kate Bosworth. Another Happy Day arrives is in limited release starting November 4, 2011. PS….this is a red band trailer so beware of language.
Answers to Nothing
Dane Cook stars in this film that is set again the backdrop of a missing girl in Los Angeles. The story follows a group of people living in Los Angeles telling an interweaving story of how each of them affects the lives of those around them. It looks a little heavy, but it looks like it might be decent. Elizabeth Mitchell (Juliet from Lost) and Barbara Hershey also star. Answers to Nothing in is limited release starting December 2, 2011.
My Week With Marilyn
Michelle Williams steps into the iconic shoes of Marilyn Monroe for this one. This is based on a book of the same name which documents the week the author (and character), Colin Clark spent with Marilyn Monroe while she was in England filming The Prince and the Showgirl. Hearing about this I didn’t have any reservations about Williams being cast and after watching the trailer, I’m sold. She looks the part and she’s a great actress. My Week with Marilyn hits theaters on November 4, 2011.
Directed by Jason Reitman, written by Diablo Cody and starring Charlize Theron, Young Adult follows an author of young adult novels as she returns to her hometown to relive her glory years. She looks to reconnect with her ex-boyfriend regardless of the fact that he’s married with kids. This is one of those films that makes it seem like you won’t like the main character. Considering who wrote it, I expect there to be some zinger dialogue and a harsh character study. This one looks pretty good so far. Young Adult arrives in theaters on December 16, 2011.

Directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta), The Raven is a fictional account of how Edgar Allan Poe joins forces with the Baltimore police to hunt down a serial killer who is using Poe’s stories as inspiration for his murder spree. John Cusack stars as Poe and at first I wasn’t sure how I felt about that fact. I really love him and would like to see him not do things like 2012, and get back to what he’s good at. This is one I will definitely go see. It’s got that Sleepy Hollow vibe to it which is to say dark and dreary. The Raven hits theaters on March 9, 2012. (trailer via Coming Soon)
