What to Watch For: Directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, this team is behind the documentary, Catfish.

Word on the Street: This film has ramped up the horror film aspect, but audiences are also enjoying the several surprisingly comedic scenes. Paranormal Activity 3 Website

The Three Musketeers

One of the most filmed stories of all time, legendary swordsmen must reunite to defeat a beautiful double agent and keep her from seizing the French throne.

What to Watch For: Paul W.S. Anderson directs his wife, Milla Jovovich. Let’s hope this film does better than 1995’s Cutthroat Island, also a swashbuckling tale where husband Renny Harlin directed his wife, Geena Davis, in one of the biggest box office disasters of all time.

Word on the Street: Shot in 3-D, this film is tries to update the plot with its Steampunk/Sci-Fi inspired storyline. The Three Musketeers website

What to Watch For: Atkinson is a hugely famous in Europe and starred in the TV icons, “Mr. Bean” and “Black Adder.”

Word on the Street: Will Atkinson finally have a hit in the U.S.? It’s going to take very good word of mouth since his first film was barely seen here. Johnny English Reborn Website
