3 For January
2. "The Company Men," January 21 - Ben Affleck, Chris Cooper, Kevin Costner
Originally scheduled for a late 2010 release, "Company Men" was shifted to 2011 at the last minute. That's never, ever a good sign, especially given how bad 2010 really was. Clearly it's not the award contender it was intended to be. Still, I've seen some positive reviews for the relevant story of several career business men who suddenly find themselves without jobs in our tough economy. I'm also interested to see what Ben Affleck does with his rejuvenated career and this is the first test. Plus, as I've (quietly) noted before, I have a secret love for virtually all things Kevin Costner and for reasons I don't understand, his presence in a film can still get me to the theater. It's weird, I know.
