Downey Jr. will once again be joined by Jude Law as his famous sidekick, Dr. Watson. Noomi Rapace and Jared Harris as Professor Moriarty are also on board.

In Marvel super hero news, Robert Downey Jr. stepped out in Hollywood this week to support actor Chris Holmes at the premiere of Captain America which opens in theaters across America July 22nd.

It’s anyone’s guess if Robert Downey Jr. will show up at the madness & mayhem that is the wonderful glory of Comic Con in San Diego this weekend. Fans & journalists alike were shocked when several of the big studios announced they were pulling out of the traditional Hall H film panels. It’s beyond this reviewer’s comprehension as to why they would want to miss out on promoting their upcoming films to more than 100, 000 Comic Con attendees.

Summit Entertainment won’t disappoint the Twilight fans this year though. The cast of Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 including Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene, Robert Pattinson and more have already hit the floor at Comic Con walking the red carpet to attend the Breaking Dawn press conference. Nikki Reed was outside greeting fans and signing autographs for fans who have been camping outside the venue since Monday.

Little Fockers in Theaters This Christmas

Universal Pictures third enstallment in the hilarious Focker film series, Little Fockers, hits theaters December 22nd just in time for some Holiday cheer & laughter. The film continues with the original cast of ROBERT DENIRO, BEN STILLER, OWEN WILSON, BLYTHE DANNER and TERI POLO with the addition of some fun new faces with JESSICA ALBA, LAURA DERN and of course the return of Academy Award® winners DUSTIN HOFFMAN and BARBRA STREISAND as Bernie & Roz Focker.

The test of wills between Jack Byrnes (De Niro) and Gaylord “Greg” Focker, (Stiller) escalates to new comedic heights in this latest installment.

It has taken 10 years, two little Fockers with wife Pam (Polo) and countless hurdles for Greg to finally get “in” with his tightly wound father-in-law, Jack.

When Greg and Pam’s entire clan – including Pam’s forever lovelorn ex-boyfriend, Kevin (Wilson) gathers for the twins birthday party, Greg must prove to the always skeptical, ever watching Jack that he’s fully capable as the man of the house. With all the comedic misunderstandings, spying and covert missions, will Greg pass Jack’s final test and become the family’s next “Godfocker”…or will the circle of trust be broken for good?

If you ‘like’ Little Fockers on Facebook, you can enter to win a $1500 American Airlines gift card. Just fill in your details and look for the confirmation of your entry. Limit one entry per person now through January 5, 2011.

This sure fire hit is rated PG-13 and will be a hilarious outing for the teens & adults in your family this Holiday season.

Due Date With Robert Downey Jr. in Theaters November 5th

Due Date courtesy of Warner Bros.

From director Todd Phillips (the Hangover) and Warner Bros. Pictures, comes Due Date, a  hilarious new comedy starring Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis as two unlikely companions thrown together on a road trip that turns out to be as life-changing as it is outrageous.

Downey plays Peter Highman, an expectant first-time father whose wife’s due date is only days away. As he hurries to catch a flight home to Los Angeles from Atlanta to be at her side for the birth, his best intentions go completely awry when a chance encounter with aspiring actor and disaster-magnet Ethan Tremblay (Galifianakis) leads to the two of them being tossed off the plane and placed on a no-fly list.

With no alternatives in sight, Peter is forced to hitch a ride with Ethan and his French bulldog on what turns out to be a cross-country road trip that will destroy several cars, numerous friendships and Peter’s last nerve.

The comedy also stars Michelle Monaghan, Juliette Lewis and Academy Award® winner Jamie Foxx. The film will open on November 5, 2010. Early reviews and theater audience reaction to the trailer have been great. This movie  looks to be another sure-fire hit for Downey.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – midnight screenings now on sale!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (part 1) doesn’t hit theaters until November 19th, but many theaters have already started selling tickets for midnight screenings. Fandango is offering them in some areas and most major cities should have them available shortly if they aren’t already listed. Enter your zip code to check your area!

The final two-part journey in the Harry Potter series is indeed a bittersweet one. For more than a decade Harry Potter has shaped the world, encouraged young readers to dive into books and live in the fantasy world of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry. As the movies have developed, we’ve watched the young actors, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson grow into young adults.

As much as I’m looking forward to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows on the big screen in November, I dread the last movie in July 2011. Harry Potter will always live on in our home but we will miss not reading about new adventures in the lives of these fabulous characters.

Life As We Know It – now in theaters

Warner Bros. Life As We Know It starring Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel is now in theaters.  It’s the story of two single adults who become caregivers to an orphaned baby girl when their mutual best friends die in an accident. The film also features Melissa McCarthy in a hilarious supporting role and Josh Lucas as the ideal boyfriend. McCarthy’s comedic timing is sheer genius and she’s been fabulous in her recent roles on Samantha Who and the new hit TV comedy Mike & Molly.

This PG-13 film (for some sexual material, language and some drug content) is a hilarious and emotional ride as we watch these two single adults without a clue in the world how to care for a baby, bumble through their new lives as they discover this is what they were looking for all along. Josh Duhamel is an excellent leading man in this laugh out loud funny and heart wrenching movie.

It’s a great role to see Katherine Heigl move on from her Grey’s Anatomy days. She’s also been busy raising her baby and supporting her Heigl Foundation by recently donating $1 million to the Compassion Revolution to support spay & neuter efforts in the greater Los Angeles area.
