Movie: I'm So Excited
Summary: Airline stewards stuck on a plane flying round and round but not going anywhere, with plenty of dance numbers in between. The latest from Almodovar promises to deliver his signature "serious comedy" style to great applause.
Why We'll See It: Early reviews say this is a return to the sex-filled insanity of the director's earlier years, and we're very interested to see how he approaches that for his increasingly international audience.
Summary: Saoirse Ronan attempts to right the wrongs of vampires past, while seeking refuge in a dilapidated coastal resort with her mother — no underlying teen abstinence message required.
Why We'll See It: Some of us are still hankering for a vampire fix, and with Ronan on board, this might fulfill the promise made, but never quite finished, by Twilight. Plus, a non-cheese vampire film could be a blessing for the genre.
Movie: White House Down
Summary: It's official: Director Roland Emmerich has an obsession with blowing up the White House. He first did it in Independence Day, and now he's traded in aliens for human terrorists as the United States erupts in a 21st century civil war.
Why We'll See It: Channing Tatum. Okay, we also can't deny the allure of an action film, and the shock-and-awe this trailer packs. But seriously, Channing Tatum.
