Welcome to The CoF Weekend Preview, here is a look at what’s opening this weekend, so many good things. Don’t forget to check out The Best Gifts For The Film Lover 2011 if you’re still shopping. The condensed December Movie Guide has been getting a lot of use, so thanks for that. BONUS: The Game Room Picture Slider has been updated and The City of Films Show: Best of The Rest Vol 1 can be heard here.
It’s the last lap of 2011 and we have the final month of movies for you below, so choose wisely. Here is a roundup of what’s coming out this month, I can tell you right now I’m so there for Sherlock Holmes, MI4, Tintin and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I usually see a movie on New Year’s Day (all is quiet), and I will likely start 2012 off with Spielberg’s War Horse.

The Angelina Jolie 60 Minutes Interview, watch it below:
Here is the first movie trailer for the Jason Reitman directed, Diablo Cody scripted film Young Adult, starring Charliz Theron, Patton Oswalt, Patrick Wilson and Elizabeth Reaser. Reitman has made some great films over the last few years including Thank you for Smoking, Juno, and Up in the Air. Diablo Cody hit a high with her script for Juno, winning herself an Oscar for her efforts. So needless to say there is a lot of hype and expectations to be had here.
Young Adult as you will see below looks like a winner, but I am a big fan of Patton Oswalt and as soon as he showed up in trailer I was sold.
Charlize Theron plays Mavis Gary, a writer of teen literature who returns to her small hometown to relive her glory days and attempt to reclaim her happily married high school sweetheart. When returning home proves more difficult than she thought, Mavis forms an unusual bond with a former classmate (Patton Oswalt) who hasn’t quite gotten over high school, either.
The movie is set to be released on December 9th. Watch the trailer below:
