Clooney, Portman, Fisburne, and DeNiro Battle it Out at the Box Office
Lots of good movies to see this weekend, including some starring George Clooney, Jason Bateman, Natalie Portman, Tobey Maguire, Jake Gyllenhaal, Matt Dillon, Jean Reno, Laurence Fishburne, Robert DeNiro, Drew Barrymoore, Kate Beckinsdale, and Sam Rockwell. Not a bad lineup. Only “Up in the Air” is in limited release (i.e. New York and L.A.), but the rest are opening nationwide.
“Up in the Air” George Clooney plays a guy who travels 330 days a year, firing the employees who companies are too afraid to fire.
“Brothers” After Natalie Portman's husband (Tobey Maguire) dies in combat, she shacks up with his brother (Jake Gyllenhaal). Except Tobey wasn't dead.“Armored” Matt Dillon, Jean Reno, Laurence Fishburne, and others stage an armored truck heist.“Everybody's Fine” Robert DeNiro goes to visit his children, including daughter Drew Barrymore.
