Everybody's Fine (Miramax) - 2,200 theaters - ReviewsThis is a dramedy starring Robert De Niro, Kate Beckinsale, and Drew Barrymore about a widower trying to strengthen his relationships with his children. This is trying to tap into the same niche as The Family Stone did in 2005 on its way to $60 million. With a super-marketable story and wholesome values, I'd expect this find a large family (and elderly) audience, and the schmaltzy feature to do pretty well over the holiday season.
Brothers (Lionsgate) - 2,000 theaters - Reviews
Armored (Sony) - 1,900 theaters - Reviews

Tobey Maguire Talks About Brothers, Spider-Man 4The Boston Globe published this very solid writeup about Tobey Maguire's preparation for Brothers and his thoughts about the Spider-Man franchise. I love straightforward interviews with actors like this one. No frills, no gimmicks, no tabloid fodder. Just good questions and good answers- it really gives you much better insight into an actor's mind.
Wes Craven Will Direct Scream 4This feels like the time that MTV brought Chris Rock back to host the VMAs, hoping they could capture the same magic (and ratings) he brought the first time. Is that feat possible with the Scream franchise, which is pretty tired at this point? Even with the original director, I'm not so hopeful. Unless they get a new mask, it's hard to get super scared of something I see every kid wearing on Halloween... BlackBook reported on the story.
