On Wednesday (Jan. 5), Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz and Eddie Murphy reprise their familiar roles in “Shrek Forever After,” the fourth film in the popular Shrek animated series. Another animated comedy, “Despicable Me,” debuts Thursday (Jan. 6). Steve Carell voices Gru, the world’s greatest villain until he meets three orphans who see him as a potential Dad.
Carell co-stars with Paul Rudd in another comedy, “Dinner for Schmucks,” which is available on Friday (Jan. 7). Rudd plays a rising executive on the verge of having it all. But first he must find the perfect guest to bring to his boss’s Dinner for Extraordinary People, an event where the winner brings the most eccentric character as his guest. Enter Rudd’s unlikely new friend (Carell). Also launching Friday is “Case 39.” It stars Rene Zellweger as a social worker who finds her fight to save a girl from abusive parents more perilous than she imagined.
