Finding itself in the same boat as The Conspirator, no stills or trailers exist for this Steven Soderbergh film, supposedly one of his last.

One thought on “The Gobbledygeek Guide to the 2011 Spring Movie Season

  1. Pretty good podcast. I laughed at the discussion regarding Gnomeo & Juliet, because I actually am looking forward to it and will be there on opening day. The concept just interests me, I’ve seen a couple of clips from it and it looks cute. Plus, you know I’ll see almost anything animated (in fact, this will be the first year I plan on seeing every animated release that comes out) and I don’t trust trailers at all.

    I’m surprised you didn’t talk about two major releases I’m looking forward to on April 15 (Rio and Scream 4). Considering how much you like casts with people you like, that surprised me. The former has Jesse Eisenberg and Anne Hathaway. Even Scream 4 added Kristen Bell to the cast.

    But, of the releases you talked about, I’m most excited for Paul and Your Highness (as, I, too, really like Pineapple Express).
