Florence Foster Jenkins - Look, we've seen Meryl Streep sing in "Mamma Mia!" and recently in "Into The Woods." But in this film based on a true story, she apparently plays a woman who can't carry a tune (much like William Hung of American Idol fame). And this same woman is able to sell out shows. Remember, before the Internet, they had to find a good laugh somewhere, right?
The Huntsman: Winter's War - "The story before Snow White..." involves Elsa taking out a wicked stepmother. Wait a minute. That's not it. But there is an ice queen (Emily Blunt) who has a bit of sibling rivalry with Snow's future stepmother (Charlize Theron) in the prequel to "Snow White and the Huntsman." Throw in Chris Hemsworth reprising his role, Jessica Chastain as his romantic partner and some pretty sweet special effects and I say you've got some box office candy right there.
