What to Expect When You’re Expecting (September 11, 2012) – Almost every pregnant woman has owned a copy of “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” but now there’s a movie too Sure, it’s a lot less information and instructional but it’s definitely entertaining. The film – starring Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz, Elizabeth Banks and Brooklyn Decker – follows the lives of women who go through fertility issues, pregnancy and adoption in their quest to experience motherhood.
Snow White and the Huntsman (September 11, 2012) – Kristin Stewart stars as Snow White in this epic and modern retelling of a classic tale. We’ve all heard and seen it before – the evil queen (Charlize Theron) is out to destroy the only person in the land who is fairer than she – but the twist is that Snow White has been training with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) and is more than ready to defend herself. The film was heralded for the visual effects but, unfortunately, it has been overshadowed by the revelation that, during filming, Stewart was having an affair with director, Rupert Sanders. Could make watching the movie a little more interesting.
