>> our baby brother , jason kennedy .

>> let's get started with the movies for the weekend. what shall we see?

>> how about "the call"? with halle berry . she plays, pretty scary, she's a 911 operator , she gets a call from a teenaged girl, abigail breslin . that's one, she spends the hour trying to save her from her abductor.

>> we're leaving out "wonderstone." if you want to lighten the mood and go to the box office , they pay competing magicians.

>> is it funny?

>> it looks cheesy, but --

>> that's my concern. it looks a little cheesy.

>> if you're going to stay home and pop the popcorn, what should we watch?

>> a lot of this stuff coming out, have been nominated nor oscars. visually stunning, it didn't win an oscar. by i thought it should. ang lee directed this. and "hitchcock" his relationship with his wife while they were shooting "psycho."

>> was it "psycho"?

>> i think so.

>> if it was, i want to see it.

>> and "life of the guardians" an animated movie , an all-star cast. they team up and take down an evil man who is trying to steal kids' dreams.

>> you know hoda when she falls in love.

>> celebrity news, adam sandler and drew barrymore are teaming up again.

>> it's the " wedding singer " 1998 the first time they got together, and then they did "50 first dates." the third romantic comedy for them doesn't have a title, but they play a couple at a family resort. they get trapped there with their kids from a previous marriage. i think it will be fun.

>> kyra has a beautiful picture with that baby.

>> i love that she's doing this. because many times when celebs don't do photos like this the paparazzi go to crazy measures to get the shots. there's gerard pique , her man. he's a soccer player. and the little guy is rocking daddy's jersey.

>> it will be a good season with the two new judges, right?

>> yes, and usher as well. no cee lo , no christine aguilera , she's great. but it's going to be, it's going to be good. i think this is going to be the best season. that's what they say every year. but i heard it's going to be pretty phenomenal.
