Bedtime Stories
Adam Sandler (Skeeter Bronson), Keri Russell (Jill), Guy Pierce (Kendall), Russell Brand (Mickey), Lucy Lawless (Aspen), Courtney Cox (Wendy); Directed by Adam Shankman
A hotel handyman's life changes when the lavish bedtime stories he tells his niece and nephew start to magically come true.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Brad Pitt (Benjamin Button), Cate Blanchett (Daisy); Directed by David Fincher
In the WWI era of New Orleans, a man is born elderly and proceeds to age backwards.

Marley & Me
Owen Wilson (John Grogan), Jennifer Aniston (Jenny Grogan); Directed by David Frankel
A family learns important life lessons from their adorable, but naughty and neurotic dog.

The Spirit
Gabriel Macht (Denny Colt/The Spirit), Samuel L. Jackson (The Octopus), Scarlett Johannson (Silken Floss), Eva Mendes (Sand Sarif); Directed by Frank Miller
Rookie cop Denny Colt returns from the beyond as The Spirit, a hero whose mission is to fight against the bad forces in Central City.

Tom Cruise (Colonel Claus Philipp Maria Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg); Directed by Bryan Singer
Based on actual events, a plot to assassinate Hitler is unfurled during the height of WWII.

UPDATE: In a shocker (to me at least), Marley & Me opened #1 at the Box Office this weekend. The Spirit, on the other hand, bombed hard opening at #9. Previous #1 Yes Man dropped to #4 and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (an Oscar contender) opened at #3. And finally, the Adam Sandler comedy Bedtime Stories opened at #2 (which bothered me since it's Adam Sandler + Disney = family comedy).
