November has rolled around, so it's officially that time of year: the holiday movie season. Both the L.A. Times and the New York Times have gotten deep into the action with great features in their movie sections which provide a heap of new photos from several highly anticipated movies. First up is a film we've already seen (read our NYFF review here), but one that's highly anticipated by many of us who haven't seen it nonetheless: Spike Jonze's "Her" (December 18th, in limited release), which features the stellar cast of Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Scarlett Johansson, Rooney Mara, Olivia Wilde and Chris Pratt.

Anchorman 2

"Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" has been a long time coming. The movie was almost a go in 2009, but Paramount told director/writer Adam McKay and Will Ferrell that they had to ruthlessly bring down their budget to almost an insulting level. "I told them the budget is $80 million," McKay told the L.A. Times. "And they're like, 'We're thinking $35 million.' 'We're like, 'You're crazy.' The first movie did great on cable and DVD, and that's where it really took off — much like 'Austin Powers.' That's where we stalled. Basically, it was over."


Fortunately for them, one of Paramount's in-development tentpoles fell through and when the creative team asked once again, this time Paramount was keen on the comedy in their now rather empty 2013 schedule (which has since filled up of course). This time the news team will face the challenges of 24-hour news, plus an increasingly changing world that includes their first encounters with gay men and African-American colleagues.

"You can't go into it worrying about expectations," McKay about trying to top the first film. "Because the whole spirit of 'Anchorman' is 'Who gives a …?' The way we did the first movie was by not obeying the rules. It's like being in the Sex Pistols and wondering if you're in tune." The movie arrives in theaters December 20th. Below, more 'Anchorman' photos, plus new pics of "August: Osage County" (December 25th) and "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" (November 22nd).
