Happy Feet 2 The visuals are spectacular (if you like 2? D), and most of the music will have you dancing in your seat, but the story is dismal and the characters drag us from one non-event to another, uttering humorless dialogue in mismatched accents that are a perfect metaphor for the mélange on-screen. Cast: Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Alecia Moore, Hank Azaria. Opens in Lebanon, Russia, Singapore and Thailand on 17 November 2011; Canada and USA on 18 November; Netherlands - 23 November; Argentina, Greece on 24 November; Brazil, Estonia, Lithuania, Poland on 25 November 2011 and in Japan on 26 November 2011.

Watch the official movie trailer of The Muppets.
Hugo is a conundrum of unfinished story strands, created from undeveloped ideas, acted out by pseudo Dickensian characters whose lives exist around an eternally bustling Parisian train station which, unfortunately, doesn't feel French at all. Opens i USA and Canada, more international openings in December and 2012 . Watch movie trailer and read review of Hugo.
My Week With Marilyn.

UK: 25 November 2011. Watch movie trailer for My Week With Marilyn.
THE ARTIST is a black and white silent movie which, for some reason, is expected to attract 2011 audiences. With a budget of $12 million, it all seems rather self-indulgent, exceedingly pretentious and a serious case of the Emperor's New Clothes. Opens in US Nov. 23; Netherlands 24 November; Portugal: 24 November 2011. Watch movie trailer of THE ARTIST

Abduction. There are so many disastrous scenes in this movie that it could have been made by a group of students in their first year at film school. The clichés are endless, tedious melodrama abounds and it feels more like a humorless spoof than the action thriller it's supposed to be. Opens in Portugal - 3 November 2011. Watch movie trailer and read more about Abduction.
50/50 is a daring combination of tragedy and comedy which works for a while but then runs out of steam, becomes sentimental and, without the depth of a tear jerker, ends up in no man's land. But when it's good, it's good, and anything that is this dark and actually funny deserves a place in the annals of movie history. Opens in France: 9 November 2011. Portugal: 10 November 2011. Hungary: 1 December 2011. Sweden: 2 December 2011. UK: 6 January 2012. Netherlands: 31 January 2012. Read review and watch movie Trailer of 50/50.
Contagion is tagged as a sci-fi/action/thriller, but it plays like a mega-long montage, with film stars rushing across a plethora of plotlines, reciting endless melodrama until they finally collapse into an ungainly finale that is coated with cheese. Beth Emhoff (Gwyneth Paltrow) returns from a trip to Hong Kong and within days dies of a mystery virus. Similar deaths are reported across the world and as the threat of this deadly disease spreads governments set up an international team of doctors who try to deal with the impending catastrophe. Opens in Belgium: 9 November 2011; France: 9 November 2011; Australia: 3 December 2011; Germany: 24 December 2011.
Immortals. When you mix the films of "300" and "Clash of the Titans" you get a movie called "Immortals." "Immortals" is a 2011 action/fantasy film that takes place in ancient Greece and is mainly about a King named Hyperion who has declared war upon humanity. He also seeks out a legendary weapon forged in the heavens by Ares called the Epirus Bow and fell to Earth long ago from the great battle that was fought within the heavens. I would have to say that it was very well done on the history of the bow and how it was lost to Earth from the heavens above. Watch movie trailer and read more about Immortals.

Drive, Ryan Gosling stars as a Los Angeles wheelman for hire, stunt driving for movie productions by day and steering getaway vehicles for armed heists by night. Though a loner by nature, Driver can’t help falling in love with his beautiful neighbor Irene (Carey Mulligan), a vulnerable young mother dragged into a dangerous underworld by the return of her ex-convict husband Standard (Oscar Isaac). Opens in Russia: 3 November 2011. Sweden: 18 November 2011. Germany: 29 December 2011. Watch movie trailer and read review of Drive.
Margin Call is set in the high stakes world of the financial industry. A gripping tale about the obscene wealth of the morally bankrupt and, although not a tell-all, it tells enough to fascinate and makes no excuses for the contemptible behavior of the bad guys who took us down a road called Armageddon. Opens in Netherlands: 10 November 2011; Hong Kong: 17 November 2011; Turkey: 18 November 2011; Portugal: 29 December 2011. Watch video and read review of Margin Call.
Midnight in Paris. This is yet another Woody Allen film with a lead character who is a writer struggling to write. It's a lot better than anything he's produced for years, but there's none of the old genius in sight and no sign of the enigmatic characters he now seems unable to create. The Brits were the first to open their cheque books to Woody Allen, but now it appears his films can't even get released there. Open in Italy - 2 December 2011.
WHAT'S YOUR NUMBER? is an uninspiring romantic comedy plods from one superficial moment to the next, telling us nothing we haven't been told before and showing us nothing we haven't seen. The concept is weak, the humor banal and the leading lady fails to distract us from the flawed execution of this unlikely tale. Opens in Hungary - 10 November 2011; Lithuania - 11 November 2011. Watch movie trailer for What's Your Number?
Zookeeper stars Kevin James and Rosario Dawson where Dr. Doolittle meets Cyrano de Bergerac in this comedy romance. Opened in September worldwide.
ANOTHER EARTH - En Route in a Tardis This film has an intriguing sci-fi premise about a duplicate earth but, unfortunately, it gets relegated to the realm of sub-plot and the focus is placed on a tedious romance that is a poor substitute for the extra-terrestrial adventure we could have enjoyed. Opens in Germany: 1 December 2011.
