Julia Roberts meets Clive Owen for a slick and sexy turn in the FOXLight DVD Release roundup. They are former spies who went to the other side and now attempt the biggest heist of their crooked careers in Duplicity. Joining in their game of one-upsmanship is Tom Wilkinson and Paul Giamatti.
The six-degrees-of-Judd Apatow game expands a branch with Superbad director Greg Mottola’s Adventureland, based at an actual Long Island amusement park where Jesse Eisenberg needs to earn some summer cash, but falls in love with Kristen Stewart turning the worst summer ever around. Usual suspects include Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig and Ryan Reynolds.
And filling the quirk slot is Sunshine Cleaning, with sisters Amy Adams and Emily Blunt going into the unlikely business of crime scene clean-up.
Also out this week…
Fighting is a look at the underground world of bare-knuckle-street-fighting, with small-town Channing Tatum sinking in the big-town New York City till a chance meeting with Terrence Howard brings him to a place where Ultimate Fighting meets Fight Club.
