The Informant – Another movie from the ever-prolific Steven Soderbergh, this one on the heels of The Girlfriend Experience. This one looks to be significantly more farcical and whimsical, say in the veins of a Coen Brothers movies (Burn After Reading perhaps?). Should hopefully be a nice change of pace, though I still need to catch The Girlfriend Experience.

Big Fan – The directorial debut from Robert Siegel, who wrote The Wrestler. Based on the trailer, this appears to be just as bleak and/or depressing. It is a movie about an obsessive Giants fan, still living with his mother and working a thankless job as a tollbooth operator, who gets assaulted by one of his favorite Giants players. He then has to face whether he places his pride or fandom as a priority (I’m getting all of this based on the trailer). Could be interesting.

Couples Retreat – From the Jon Favreau/Vince Vaughn/Peter Billingsley team who recently brought us The Break-Up in 2006. Great cast that includes Vince Vaughn, Jon Favreau, Jason Bateman, Kristin Bell, Kristin Davis, Faizon Love, Malin Akerman, Ken Jeong and Jean Reno. Hopefully it will be more than a basic romantic comedy.
