For the last post in my Fall Movie Preview series, let's take a look at some of the fun kid stuff that'll be hitting the theaters in the coming months. Some of these movies look like they will be lots of fun for grown-ups, too.
Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium
Natalie Portman, Jason Bateman and Dustin Hoffman all star in this whimsical tale of a magical toy shop. The brightly colored trailer makes the movie look quirky and cute — definitely a winner for both young and old. Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium hits theaters November 16.
More fun kid stuff if you read more
Jerry Seinfeld co-wrote and lent his voice to this animated story of Barry B. Benson, a bee who discovers that humans have been stealing bees' honey so he decides to sue. In addition he befriends a human named Vanessa (voiced by Renee Zellweger), and they seem to have some kind of bee-human romance thing going on, but we won't find out what really happens until Bee Movie opens November 2.
Alvin and the Chipmunks
I'm not convinced that this upcoming version of Alvin and the Chipmunks will be any good, but I'm willing to give it a shot. Jason Lee stars as the ever-aggravated Dave, struggling to deal with the bizarre antics of his three rascally chipmunks, Alvin, Simon and Theodore. Take a look at the trailer to see what you think before Alvin and the Chipmunks opens in theaters December 14.
Sydney White looks like that fun movie that will be perfect to go see with your little girl cousins. In this modern-day Snow White tale, Amanda Bynes plays Sydney White, a college freshman at a school where the sorority sisters rule. When Sydney finds that she's not exactly a good match for the sisters, she ends up rooming with seven geeky guys who agree to help Sydney get back at those nasty sorority witches. Check out the trailer here before the movie opens this Friday September 21.
