The Lucky One

Based On: The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks
Director: Scott Hicks (Other movies include Snow Falling on Cedars and Hearts in Atlantis)
Screenwritter: Will Fetters (Other works include Remember Me)

A Marine travels to North Carolina after serving three tours in Iraq and searches for the unknown woman he believes was his good luck charm during the war.
Nicholas Sparks said in an interview that The Lucky One is a novel he is very proud of. I don't know. The trailer makes it sound a little creepy. Whether the movie does well or not (most likely it will) Sparks must be very happy. He has a movie coming out every year now.

Think Like a Man

Based On: Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man by Steve Harvey 
Director: Tim Story (Other works include Taxi and Fantastic Four films)
Writers: Keith Merryman and David A. Newman (Also Collaborated writing Friends with Benefits)
Stars: Chris Brown, Gabrielle Union and Kevin Hart
Four friends conspire to turn the tables on their women when they discover the ladies have been using Steve Harvey's relationship advice against them.
I really want to see this movie! I've been curious to read the book for the longest time, and it would be really interesting to see how a non-fiction book is adapted to screen. I don't understand how it "stars Chris Brown" though. He's not even in the poster. I just think it's a little weird.
