With the frozen winter season upon us, one of the best past-times to avoid the chill is to go to the theater and check out what is hot at the box office. In the coming weeks, Josh Radnor will be breaking out in his directorial debut, Matt Damon will find his romantic side, and Red Riding Hood will no longer appear little, or innocent.

Director: Josh Radnor
Cast: Malin Akerman, Kara Mara, Josh Radnor
Release Date: March 4th, 2011 (Limited)

Happythankyoumoreplease was released at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and won the audience award for favorite drama. Now, a year later, Josh Radnor has been given the opportunity to take this film to the big screen in his directorial debut. With the taste of Blue Valentine, Juno, and Garden State, this romantic, inspirational, and comedic film has the potential to be a hit big at the box office this Spring. Happythankyoumoreplease is a film about a young boy who has been separated from his family on the New York subway. When Sam Wexler (played by Radnor) finds this boy, Sam takes him under his wing in hopes to find his family. Though, as the film progresses, a unique friendship and bond is created between the two. The lives of Sam and his close-knit group of friends are forever changed due to the influence of this small boy, and with separation and "goodbye" being the hardest thing to do.

The Adjustment Bureau
Director: George Nolfi
Cast: Matt Damon, Emily Blunt
Release Date: March 4, 2011

The Adjustment Bureau is Matt Damon’s newest film, and although it does not allow him to break away from his cliche action role of government betrayal, this film seems to have a strong romantic zest. About a New York politician and his growing love for a ballerina, the film raises the question of, “What if you could not choose?” The Adjustment Bureau wants the audience to imagine what it would be like if they were truly forced into a path of their life where they could not chose, and unable to steer life in their own direction. As Damon fights for a life of his choice and puts those he loves in danger; the underlying suspense is in-ignorable of what may happen. Aside from personal high hopes for this film, in reality, the audience will likely be filled of die-hard Bourne lovers supporting their favorite leading man.

Red Riding Hood
Director: Catherine Hardwicke
Cast: Amanda Seyfriend, Max Irons, Shiloh Fernandez
Release Date: March 11, 2011

Surprisingly, Red Riding Hood has somewhat of a haunting trailer. Between the digital effects, emotional music, and gorgeous landscapes, one falls in captivated by the screen before them. With a more mature, yet seductive twist, Red Riding Hood is the tale of the wolf, the girl, and “off to Grandmother’s house we go.” Though this time, the wolf is the one being hunted by the town he terrorizes ever full moon. Director Catherine Hardwicke seems to have managed to adapt this storyline into something more applicable for older audiences in a stunning, and enchanting way.
