Hey Insiders,

Another two weeks (or if you're terribly British, a fortnight) has passed, and we're guessing that you might be suffering from Beijing overkill by now. Hey, Stephanie Rice is a great athlete and not exactly hard on the eyes, but there's other things to look at as well. Take Joaquin Phoenix and Mark Wahlberg for example. They're both great actors, they're both sexy and they're both in We Own the Night, which has so much drama packed into it, there's a chance it will burst at the seams.

Also crammed full of drama is the star-studded Street Kings: Keanu Reeves, Chris Evans, Forest Whitaker and Hugh "he may be House to you but he'll always be The Prince Regent to us" Laurie all combine to deliver a gritty drama about cops on the edge, and the wrong side of the law. Things are just as tense in Untraceable, which stars the always-gorgeous Diane Lane as an FBI agent hunting down a serial killer (is there any other kind in Hollywood?)

If you want something a bit lighter, you can go to your Network store's new release wall right now and pick up Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Any movie that stars How I Met Your Mother's Jason Segal (in all his glory), Kirsten "Veronica Mars" Bell and That '70s Show cutey Mila Kunis is alright by us. Oh, and it's wet-your-pants funny, so make sure you take precautions before you sit on the couch.

And that's not all: Ben Affleck shines behind in the camera with Gone Baby Gone; 10,000 BC sees you visit a land of adventure; and Jodie Foster is stranded on Nim's Island with no sign of Gilligan or murderous smoke monsters.

Phew, like watching some people in spandex run around a track could match up to that kind of entertainment.

See you in-store.
