Three new movies are set to premiere this weekend, including the sci-fi western action film "Cowboys and Aliens," "The Smurfs," and Steve Carell's new romantic comedy titled "Crazy, Stupid, Love."
"Cowboys and Aliens," directed by Jon Favreau, produced by Ron Howard and executive produced by Stephen Spielberg is based on the 2006 graphic novel of the same name created by Scott Mitchell Rosenberg.
Set in Arizona in 1873, a loner must ally with his former enemies to fight off an alien attack on the local town. The film stars Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford and Olivia Wilde.
"The Smurfs" is a film adaptation of the popular 1980s cartoon series about the adventures of a group of small, blue people.
"Crazy, Stupid, Love" is billed as a romantic comedy-drama film directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, written by Dan Fogelman, starring Carell, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore, Emma Stone, Marisa Tomei and Kevin Bacon.
Carell's character seems to have the perfect life until one day his wife asks him for a divorce and his perfect life quickly unravels.
Focus on the Family movie critic Bob Waliszewski reviewed all three films on the CBN News Channel's Midday News, July 29.
