As you can read, The Brothers Bloom stars Rachel Weisz, Adrien Brody, Mark Ruffalo and Rinko Kikuchi (Babel). It finally opens wide on May 29 after being delayed a few times.

Gordon-Levitt—brilliant as a brain-damaged bank robber in The Lookout, and a teen avenging the death of his girlfriend in Brick—will so thoroughly charm audiences as a hopeless romantic wooing Zooey Deschanel in 500 Days of Summer (July 17), that they’ll completely forgive his role in G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra (August 7).
