The Descendants
Guess what, Patricia Hastie? You’re going to play George Clooney’s wife in a smart Alexander Payne indie-flick filmed in Hawaii! Oh, and you’ll be bedridden in a coma and everybody thinks you’re a bitch. Congratulations! (Fox Searchlight)

Young Adult
A teen-lit writer (Charlize Theron) returns to her hometown to relive the good ol’ days and win back her now-married high school sweetheart (Patrick Wilson); uncomfortable situations and Patton Oswalt ensue. Redundant? (Paramount)

Melancholia
Just your typical wedding-goes-bad romantic comedy, with Kirsten Dunst and Alexander Skarsgard as the hapless newlyweds. Also, there’s a planet called Melancholia on an apocalyptic collision course with Earth … wha? (Magnolia)

The Three Musketeers
A bunch of British actors you’ve never heard of and Milla Jovovich kick, scream and fly through a remake/rewrite of the Alexandre Dumas classic about swashbuckling, swordplay and questionable wigs (Jovovich included). (Summit)

Fairly Legal: Season 1
A ridiculously good-looking San Francisco legal mediator (ridiculously good-looking Sarah Shahi) helps people settle their differences out of court, but—wait for it—can’t settle the differences in her own love life. All together: Awww. (Universal)
