The Comeback Kids
Well, they're not really kids, but they are attempting to make a comeback in roles that suited them much earlier in life. Up first, is Mel Gibson who stars in the action/adventure "Apocalypto". He's not exactly the most popular person on the earth right now and this movie might be a a hard sell. Not only because of the disparaging remarks he made after his drunk-driving arrest, but because the rest of the cast in this movie is unknown and a lot of it is in a language no one even speaks anymore. This is one movie that is set to be released during the holiday season. Another comeback kid is Sylvester Stallone who will star in "Rocky Balboa". You can pretty much guess what this movie is about just by the name. Apparently, he still has lots of fans who have been patiently waiting for the release of this movie, where we are re-introduced to a much older and wiser Rocky who is thinking about a return to the boxing ring. Finally, we have Peter O'Toole who will play a lecherous old man (not a huge stretch for him) in "Venus". These are just three of the gazillion movies that will be out this holiday season. It will be interesting to see how Sylvester Stallone and Mel Gibson do at the box office up against some strong competition.
