    Silver Linings Playbook, mostlyy because it looks funny,quirky and interesting, but just a little bit because DeNiro seems like a normal father figure rather than a mobster or 'normal' guy who seems like a mobster. Nice to see him get to act again.

  • I'll watch all 5 because they all look solid (maybe not the Stathaming but...it's Statham) but I doubt I will see any of them in the theater. Not really a slam, I see very few movies in theaters and tend to go with the triple A titles. Looper, Cloud Atlas, Skyfall, and The Hobbit. Those should round out my year. But hey, you never know.

  • HelloLongBeach

    Russle Crowe is making a play for the They Live remake with those pretty bangs.

  • mslewis

    None of these appeal to me as far as paying to see them at the movies but I will gladly rent "Silver Linings Playbook" because it looks like something that will make me laugh and cry and I don't hate Bradley Cooper.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    Silver Linings Playbook. I have a Bradley Cooper crush. And a Jennifer Lawrence girl crush.

  • Z.

    Silver Linings Playbook....it won the People's Choice Award out of the Toronto International Film Festival (top prize) and has been getting rave reviews, particularly for Jennifer Lawrence and Cooper. So, that's the film for me. As for the rest, eh, maybe Broken City.....but is Crowe wearing a rug?!....you could fly to Persia on that thing.

  • blacksred

    Does Mark Walhberg ever NOT play a cop? Oh and I will definitely get these on redbox, may even spring for Blu-Ray at home. We save our funds to see shitastic effects only in the theater!

  • Sara_Tonin00

    See Wahlberg's reasons for doing The Happening.

  • Gina

    The Fighter?

  • e jerry powell

    Cooper is looking especially emu-ish, no? Emu trying for gravitas. This should be interesting.

  • Quatermain

    'Parker', followed by 'Broken City.' I'm not big on cartoons and 'Stoker' looks like the kind of movie where there is a lot of yelling and crying and talking about feelings, with the occasional gunshot thrown in to keep people from falling asleep. I don't need to pay to see that, I see that all the time for free.

  • jessea

    Really Statham? I love you, but you're no Lee Marvin.

  • yocean

    I wanna say Stoker, but probably Silver Linings Playbook cause I'm a sucker for those movies.

  • Natallica

    Is Bradley Cooper going to go old-guy-creepy all over cute, awesome, beautiful Jennifer Lawrence? Ew, no!

  • $27019454

    Oh look, it's Russel Crowe whom I love and he looks like a thin version of the creepy Jeffrey Wigand guy from that cigarette movie, which is his BESt and look...Ahhh...Fucking Buzzkill, it's Catherine Zeta-Look-At-Me. God, she sucks the hot out of every guy she stars with. Ugh...and then Nicole Kidman, the other Hot-Sucking force of nature ruins that other movie. And then...trifecta! It's Jennier Lopez! See? THIS is why I can't see nice movies. It's why -- I swear -- I see fewer than half the movies I would see if I was not so averse to Chicks Who Suck The Hot.

  • John G.

    let's see....should I choose "Access to Restricted Internet Site DENIED" or "Access to Restricted Internet Site DENIED"

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Stoker, Broken City, and Parker, of course.

    I also wonder how much money Disney paid the various game publishers for the rights to use their stuff.

  • Samantha Klein

    Broken City, absolutely.

  • BigRedMachine

    Parker. Hands down. Obviously.
    Jason Statham dressed like the Woody Harrelson version of a cowboy, doing an intentionally bad Texas cowboy accent?
    Cinema gold.
    And the last 14 years of J-Lo have yet to tarnish my memories of "Out of Sight," so I'll hold out hope that she makes good again.

  • Blake

    Stoker... That is all.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Oh, hot nerdy tweedy Russell Crowe. yum.

    NOT from the trailers, which I can watch for the moment, but from the description, I want to see Silver Linings the most. But I always want to see David Russell movies, and yet never end up going to the theater to see them.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Hmm...now that I've watched the trailer for Broken City...a) I feel like Russell Crowe should've gotten a chance to play JFK. b) I feel like the Crowe in the header pic couldn't possibly be the character Crowe is playing the movie. J

  • JenVegas

    was that Chris Tucker in Silver Linings Playbook? Cause I've been wondering where that guy has been.

  • junierizzle

    Broken City. The rest are rentals. STOKER looks cool but that's it. THere is a lot going on but it just doesn't interest me.

  • Huh. So Broken City stars Russell Crowe, Mark Wahlburg, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and whatever the Hell that thing is on Crowe's head.

    Silver Linings Playbook looks fun in a hipster, "Krazy PPL R Kool" kinda way.

  • Silver Linings Playbook. It looks funny and honest. Not a lot of films about depression are funny and honest. That excites me.

  • carrie

    Stoker and David O Russel movie

  • lowercase_ryan

    Why did they have to use JLO?

    Otherwise I would genuinely want to see all of these.

  • foolsage

    Wreck-it-Ralph looks decent, although I was disappointed to see they apparently replaced Jane Lynch with this Jane Lync person. Tragic, really, and confusing.

  • Odnon.

    Wow They need to try and cram a few more tropes into that Playbook thing It's like "come see every movie ever made all crammed into one!"
    Also, there needs to be more movies here that end in "-er".

  • space_oddity

    All I gotta say is Donald Westlake must be rolling over in his grave about that Parker movie.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    I knew that trailer reminded me of something.

  • D

    a movie with russel crowe, catherina zeta jones and marky mark, i do not need to see that. and they made russel crowe orange... wow, not a good color for anyone.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Don't forget that thing on his head.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    This marks the first time that I have NOT wanted to see a The Statham movie. Way to fucking ruin everyone's fun, Lopez.

  • Viking

    My thoughts exactly. Even though I believe i also saw the actor who played Bunk Moreland in The Wire driving the car in the first few seconds of the trailer. I love The Bunk!.

  • Kirstini

    Broken City is also clearly starring Catherine Zeta Jones. Either that or I want the number of Marky Mark's surgeon.

  • AudioSuede

    Me watching the Stoker trailer:

    "Ugh, Nicole Kidman. Oh well, I like everyone else. Still, this seems kinda dull. Is this a knock-off of that Hitchcock movie? The one with Uncle Charlie? Wait, what did that girl just-

    Oh. Oh that took a turn.

    I need to see this movie."

  • L.O.V.E.

    I was waiting for the "I see dead people" foot to drop.

    Oh, and do phone booths still exist?

  • googergieger

    Are you bad mouthing the greatest director of all time?

  • googergieger

    Stoker obviously, D-Ro. Best movie of 2013, I tell you what.

  • Mrcreosote

    Parker because the clown is gonna get it.

  • L.O.V.E.

    I was going to pick Broken City, but they blew a perfectly good opportunity to go meta and have Crowe throw a phone.

  • celery

    Oooooooh Chan-wook Park! That's all I need.

  • Ross Miller

    Stoker. Park Chan-wook. Nicole Kidman. Mia Wasikowska, Matthew Goode. 'Nuff said.

  • Parker, because The Statham appears in a fucking VICAR'S OUTFIT! Why has this not happened before?!

  • Can't tell if your serious. Can't decide whether to say Expendables II. Lying.
