'Playing for Keeps'

Release Date: Dec. 7

The Plot: Once a soccer champ, a loser dad (Gerard Butler) decides to coach his little son’s soccer team. While pulling his life back together, he hopes to prevent the ex-wife (Jessica Biel) he’s still in love with from getting remarried. But he also hopes to score a sportscaster job through a romantic prospect Catherine Zeta-Jones).

The Buzz: Real-life lady’s man Butler seems determined to have a similar affect on female moviegoers. His previous rom-coms, "The Bounty Hunter" and "The Ugly Truth," proved decent in the box-office department -- but any success was credited to his costars Jennifer Aniston and Katherine Heigl (respectively). "Playing for Keeps" will more accurately test his pull in this genre.
