Next: 10 Stealth Movie Remakes
Promised Land (December 28)
Gus Van Sant (Oscars for "Milk" and "Good Will Hunting") returns to the director’s chair with a powerful small town versus big corporation battle film. Matt Damon stars as the swindling salesman of a multi-billion-dollar gas company looking to exploit a small town on its back.
John Krasinski plays the opposing role as a local farmer trying to stand up for his people, and probably also trying to get in some clever one-liners. Luckily, Pam will not appear in this one.
Frances McDormand and Rosemarie DeWitt also star in the film, based on a novel by Dave Eggers. Expect small-town jokes, small-town bars and probably a cover band to go with the powerful drama.
