Tower Heist. Ben and Eddie Murphy team up on this great comedy from Universal Pictures. The movie is about the caper of workers at a luxury Central Park condominium to reclaim what had been stolen from them by a penthouse billionaire.

Ben Stiller plays Queens native Josh Kovacs who is managing one of the most luxurious residences in New York City for more than a decade. Then comes along Arthur Shaw (played by Alan Alda) who steals two billion from his investors, among which are tower staffers whose pensions he was entrusted to manage. With only days before Arthur gets away with the perfect crime, Josh's crew turns to petty crook Slide (Murphy) to plan the nearly impossible... to steal what they are sure is hidden in Arthur's guarded condo. Will they succeed? Or they will just discover more secrets?

J. Edgar. Director Clint Eastwood delves into the personal life of J. Edgar Hoover with this biopic from Warner Bros. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio as the controversial FBI Director. Joining the cast are Naomi Watts, Armie Hammer, Josh Lucas and Damon Herriman.

J. Edgar Hoover was director of FBI from May 1924 until his death in 1972. All these years, he had established the agency’s current operating fundamentals and survives impassive to the management of up to seven presidents. Despite being an unpopular character, and that by displaying a more than dubious double standard, its network of informants gave him the power to know life, and dirty, almost anyone who could be someone, hence there are those who say while breath was the most powerful man in America.

Jack and Jill. Adam Sandler and Katie Holmes pair up in this hilarious comedy. Al Pacino also stars in this Dennis Dugan film distributed by Columbia Pictures.

Adam Sandler plays twin Jack and Jill Sadelstein in this movie. Jack is on top of his game. What more could he ask for? He has a beautiful wife (Katie Holmes), great kids, a grand house in L.A., and a successful job as an advertising executive. But Jack has a “little” fear – Thanksgiving. For him the season only means one thing… A visit from his needy, annoying, aggressive, neurotic, identical twin sister, Jill.

Justine and Michael are celebrating their marriage at a sumptuous party in the home of her sister Claire, and brother-in--law John. Despite Claire's best efforts, the wedding is a fiasco, with family tensions mounting and relationships fraying. Meanwhile, a planet called Melancholia is heading directly towards Earth.

The Descendants. From Alexander Payne, creator of Oscar-winning “Sideways,” comes this great epical comedy about the unpredictable journey of an American family at a crossroads.  Released by Fox Searchlight, the movie stars George Clooney and Amara Miller.

Matt King (played by George Clooney) must re-examine his past and navigate his future when his wife is in a boating accident off Waikiki. He awkwardly attempts to repair his relationship with his daughters –  10-year-old precocious Scottie and rebellious 17-year-old Alexandra –  while wrestling with a decision to sell his family's land. Handed down from Hawaiian royalty and missionaries, the Kings own some of the last priceless virgin parcels of tropical beach in the islands.

When Alexandra drops the bombshell that her mother was in the midst of a romantic fling at the time of the accident, Matt has to take a whole new look at his life, not to mention his legacy, during a week of momentous decisions. With his girls in tow, he embarks on a haphazard search for his wife's lover. Along the way, in encounters alternately funny, troublesome and transcendent, he realizes he's finally on course toward rebuilding his life and family.

The Muffets. Walt Disney Pictures gives us another family/comedy film about selflessness and sacrifice.

On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world's biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets' former stomping grounds. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate.

A Dangerous Method. Director Cronenberg adapts to the big screen Christopher Hampton’s play detailing the deteriorating relationship between Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. Viggo Mortensen plays Sigmund Freud while Michael Fassbender plays Carl Jung. Keira Knightley and Sarah Gordon also join the cast.

The year is 1904. Carl Jung, a disciple of Sigmund Freud, is using Freudian techniques to treat Russian-Jewish psychiatric patient Sabina Spielrein at Burghölzli Mental Hospital. But the deeper Jung's relationship with Spielrein grows, the further the burgeoning psychiatrist and his highly respected mentor drift apart. As Jung struggles to help his patient overcome some pressing paternal issues, disturbed patient Otto Gross sets out to test the boundaries of the doctor's professional resolve.

Piranha 3DD. If you enjoy last year’s Piranha 3D, you will also love this sequel. Director Gulager will give us more piranhas, more blood, and more boobs in this follow-up to Alexander Aja’s horror comedy.

In the movie, the prehistoric piranha from the original makes their way into the water supply of a newly opened water park, "Wilderness Waters." The town eventually scrambles to rid itself of the creatures. The race is on to save the town from these flesh-eating creatures that are leaving a bloodbath in their wake.
