Role Models – David Wain’s third film stars Paul Rudd, Seann William Scott and has a cast that includes a ton of familiar faces from recent comedies – Elizabeth Banks (40 Year Old Virgin), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Superbad), Jane Lynch (40 Year Old Virgin), Ken Jeong (Knocked Up) – as well as many of the usual troupe that appears in Wain movies – A.D. Miles, Joe Lo Truglio, Kerry Kenney, and Ken Marino. But the trailer makes it seem kind lame and it uses a Matchbox Twenty song. I’d say the jury’s out on this one.

Rachel Getting Married – Anne Hathaway stars in the latest Jonathan Demme (The Silence of the Lambs, Stop Making Sense, Philadelphia) film. For a bigger director, it appears that Demme adopted a lo-fi aesthetic to the film. Based on the trailer, it sort of reminds me of Peter Hedges’ Pieces of April.

Milk – Sean Penn stars as the titular character in this Gus Van Sant movie about the first openly gay man to be elected to public office in America. Looks like another solid pic from Focus Features and it features a great cast to boot – Josh Brolin, James Franco, Emile Hirsch, Diego Luna, Alison Pill.
