Is 'Killers' as bad as Carl Ichan says? Does 'Shrek' have any gas left? Is 'Predator's the surprise hit?
Can indie films make a comeback this summer?
Besides Fox Searchlight's "500 Days of Summer" and Woody Allen's "Whatever Works," the summer of 2009 was not kind to indie films. That should change this year. Searchlight returns with the buzzed about Sundance entry "Cyrus" with John C. Reilly, Jonah Hill and Marisa Tomei; Focus Features will release potential Oscar layer "The Kids Are All Right" starring Annette Bening and Julianne Moore; Sony Classics has potential breakouts "Get Low" and "Micmacs"; and Roadside Attractions will try and make some noise with Sundance Grand Jury winner "Winter's Bone." Not all of these films will breakthrough, but they'll do much better than last year's lot.
