November 13th sees Streep as the voice of Mrs. Fox in the Wes Anderson adaptation of Roald Dahl's classic The Fantastic Mr. Fox. Starring opposite Streep is none other than dream boat George Clooney. While animated films may not be your cup of tea, this sounds like it may be one of those rare fun for everyone films. I mean, if Streep agreed to it, how bad can it be, right? (This is, of course, ignoring The Ant Bully. We all make mistakes!)
Something a little more exciting, however, is It's Complicated, due out Christmas Day. Streep stars alongside Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin. The plot doesn't seem terribly exciting (woman divorces man, then has an affair with said man), but I'm all for this film based upon one line Streep utters in the trailer above -- "Turns out, I'm a bit of a slut." Priceless.
