Cheaper by the Dozen (Dvanásť do tucta) - Comedy by Shawn Levy.

Something's Gotta Give (Milovať je zábavné) - Romantic comedy by Nancy Meyers. As usual, Jack Nicholson plays his charming self. But this time it is blatantly obvious, as he plays Harry, an aging playboy with a penchant for younger women. After suffering a heart attack at the home of his young girlfriend's mother (Diane Keaton), he finds himself, for the first time ever, attracted to a woman his own age. But his young and virile doctor (Keanu Reeves) begins to develop similar feelings.

Secret Window (Tajomné okno) - Thriller by David Koepp. Two of our best actors - Johnny Depp and John Turturro - star in this adaptation of a Stephen King story. Depp plays an accomplished writer who secludes himself in the country to escape from his messy divorce. And Turturro does what he does better than practically anybody: play a psychotic. Also starring Maria Bello, Timothy Hutton, and Charles S Dutton. But let's not get distracted from what's important: Depp and Turturro.

Hidalgo (Oceán ohňa) - Adventure by Joe Johnston. On the heels of his Lord of the Rings success, Viggo Mortenson plays Frank T Hopkins, an American cavalry rider who takes his trusted horse, Hidalgo, to participate in a deadly race across the desert from Arabia to Iraq. The film also features world-class bridge player Omar Sharif, who in his spare time has starred in some of the greatest films ever made (Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor Zhivago).
