“Chicken Little”

This November, expect the movie theaters to be packed. Many films are going to be released that are already being predicted as box office smashes. Promotions for some movies have been in movie theaters since the summer.

“Chicken Little” has been promoted since the end of August. With Zach Braff, Joan Cusack, Don Knotts and Steve Zahn doing the voices for the Buena Vista film, humor can be expected. The classic tale of “the sky is falling” is being remade into an animated family film.

After a piece of the sky falls on Chicken Little, he attempts to save the rest of the world with a group of his friends, who are also from classic fables. The “ugly duckling,” who is named Abby Mallard in the film, Fish out of Water and Runt of the Litter are just a few of Chicken Little’s friends.

This movie is predicted to be a family classic and is recommended for children and adults of all ages. The movie will be in theaters on Nov. 4, 2005. For more information on this movie, visit

“Get Rich Or Die Tryin'”

On Nov. 9, 50 Cent’s acting debut will be released by Paramount Pictures. “Get Rich or Die Tryin'” is inspired by the life and trials of Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson. It tells the story of a man named Marcus who gets caught up in selling drugs to provide a life for himself, all the while dreaming about becoming a rap artist.

While out dropping off some goods, he gets shot and badly injured. It is his girlfriend who helps him through and also encourages him to make a demo for recording studios. But when Marcus’ old dealing contacts find out that his songs are about their business, they are less then thrilled.

This film is rated R and is targeted towards adults. 50 Cent is contributing to the soundtrack as well and the songs will be preformed in the film.


Another movie that is widely anticipated is the theatrical release of the Broadway hit, “RENT”. All but two of the original Broadway cast has taken up their original roles to portray a group of friends living in New York City.

Jonathan Larson’s modern day adaptation of Puccini’s opera, “La Boheme,” won four Tony awards in 1996. When the movie adaptation of “RENT” was suggested, most of the cast members jumped at the chance.

Rosario Dawson as “Mimi” and Tracie Thoms as “Joanne” have been added to the cast, and are more then thrilled to do so. The returning cast members include: Taye Diggs, Adam Pascal, Idina Menzel and Anthony Rapp.

The story is about a group of people and their lives within one year. They are brought together by friendship and torn apart by love, drugs, AIDS and death. They learn a lot about themselves and about other people through each other. The movie will be in theaters Nov. 23.

“Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”

One movie coming out next month has had people waiting for two years. The fourth installment of the “Harry Potter” series by J.K Rowling is finally coming to the big screen on Nov. 18 from Warner Bros. In “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” Harry has just arrived at school after his summer break when it is announced that the Triwizard Tournament will be happening during the school year. There will be two other wizarding schools visiting to compete in the tournament.

The Goblet of Fire is to reveal one champion from each school and Harry and the rest of the school is very surprised when there are two champions from Hogwarts. His name comes out of the goblet and is the fourth champion and now has to compete in three tasks to win the tournament.

The question is who put Harry’s name in the Goblet of Fire and is it just a part of a bigger scheme to dispose of Harry and lead him right into the clutches of Lord Voldemort?

This is the first of the “Harry Potter” movies to be rated PG-13 for violence and fear-provoking images. The previous three films were rated PG.

Watch out for these movies and many more that will be released in November. For more information, and are sure to give information on these movies and many more.
