If you don't want to see Poe-related bloody murder, check out this romantic-comedy counter-programming. Nicholas Stoller (¿The Muppets,¿ ¿Forgetting Sarah Marshall¿), wrote, directed and produced (with Judd Apatow) this tale of a couple, played by Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, whose long, long, long engagement strains their relationship. The supporting cast here is top-notch, from ¿Community¿ star Alison Brie to ¿Parks & Recreation's¿ Chris Pratt.
Our excitement level: 6. Stoller-Segel are on one heck of a roll, and the people involved here seem to know how to made a comedy when so many others just don't. At all.
