New Movie Releases — ‘Playing for Keeps,’ ‘Hyde Park on Hudson,’ ‘Deadfall’ and More
The first weekend of December features a new Bill Murray movie, some family-friendly drama, and a little grown-up comedy and action. We’ve got a breakdown of the week’s new releases for all you entertainment-seekers.
In ‘Playing for Keeps,’ Gerard Butler plays a former athlete and divorced man who’s trying to prove his worth to his ex-wife and son by coaching a little-league soccer team.
‘Hyde Park on Hudson’ stars Bill Murray as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who had an affair with a distant cousin during the weekend when the King and Queen of England made their very first visit to the U.S. and stayed at his home in upstate New York.
‘Deadfall’ stars Eric Bana and Olivia Wilde as a brother-and-sister crime pair who split up when a casino heist goes awry, only to find themselves reuniting during another family’s Thanksgiving dinner.
And in ‘Lay the Favorite,’ a Vegas cocktail waitress gets mixed up with a sports gambler when she discovers that she’s quite skilled at gambling herself.
