New Trailers:

1. Bucket List. Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman star in this Boomer weep-fest about 2 guys with cancer that resolve to do everything on their 'things to do before I kick the bucket' list.

2. Youth Without Youth. Francis Ford Coppola's new movie, starring Tim Roth. Hard to tell what's going on in the trailer, but its set in the 1940's.

3. Juno. Jason Reitman (Thank You for Smoking) directs Michael Cera, Jason Bateman and Jennifer Garner in this accidental pregnancy dramedy. Looks good, and has a somewhat different angle than Knocked Up.

4. Gone Baby Gone. Ben Affleck co-wrote and directs this film based on the novel by the same name (by the Mystic River author). Casey Affleck, Ed Harris, Morgan Freeman, and Michelle Monaghan star in the Beantown child abduction/neighborhood toughs thriller. Hard to distinguish the plotline from Mystic River, but actually looks pretty good.


1. The American Film Institute is celebrating its 40th anniversary by screening 11 classic films in LA for the public, introduced in person by the primary artist for each film, most notably One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (Nicholson introducing), Shawshank Redemption (Freeman Introducing), Star Wars (Lucas Introducing, and Unforgiven (Eastwood Introducing).

Juno looks really good. Director Jason Reitman's first film "Thank You For Smoking" (B+) held up very well on a recent second viewing.
