THE 'JUNO' SENSATION'S NEW PIX

SMART PEOPLE: Dennis Quaid, Sarah Jessica Parker, Thomas Haden Church, Ellen Page, Ashton Holmes (Directed by Noam Murro; Written by Mark Poirier; Miramax Films) Professor Lawrence Wetherhold, the narcissistic, thickly bearded widower played by Dennis Quaid, yearns for a life without emotional entanglements. Serenity proves elusive, however, thanks to disturbing intrusions by Vanessa (Ellen Page), his brainy, relentlessly Republican daughter, and to James (Ashton Holmes), his troubled, poetic son, as well as Chuck (Thomas Haden Church), the staggeringly unpredictable adopted brother who, totally uninvited, has come home to cuddle with the family. Nor do things calm down when the accident-prone professor lands in the hospital, only to be treated by a former student (Sarah Jessica Parker) who’s turned out to be the doctor he'd most like to have sex in the city with. Now Playing

PEACOCK: Cillian Murphy, Ellen Page, Susan Sarandon, Josh Lucas, Bill Pullman, Jaimi Paige, Virginia Newcomb, Paul Cram (Directed by Michael Lander; Written by Michael Lander and Ryan Roy; Mandate Pictures) Nothing much ever happened in the tiny town of Peacock, Nebraska--unless you count the day a train ran into the back yard of a humble bank clerk mamed John Skillpa (Cillian Murphy). That was the same day folks became aware that John had a housemate, a woman they took to be his wife. Peacockians being Peacockians, no one made much of the fact that John and his spouse never appeared in the same place at the same time. Finally, somebody took notice--a perky single mom (played by "Juno's" Ellen Page) began to suspect that something strange, maybe even sick, was going on in John's house. How could this well-intentioned snoop bring John's story to a happy ending? Persuade John to put his wife up for adoption? Or, discovering that the guy had been getting off on slipping into something silky and masquerading as his own wife, she might try convincing him that she herself would make the best of all possible Mrs. Skillpas. Or maybe get the hell out of Peacock. Opening date to be announced

WHIP IT!: Ellen Page (Directed by Drew Barrymore; Written by Shauna Cross; Mandate Pictures) Who could have imagined that the precious little angel in “E.T.” would morph into a sexy, down-to-earth babe in “Charlie’s Angels” and “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle”? And who would have thought the same little angel would one day take flight and set down not in front of the camera but behind it? That is precisely what Drew Barrymore, sole famous survivor of a bigger-than-life theatrical clan, is about to do. In “Whip It!,” Drew’s directorial debut, Ellen Page, the “Juno” wonder, will play Bliss, a tenacious Texan teen determined to race her way to roller derby glory. The screenplay is by Shauna Cross, a.k.a. to skater buffs as Maggie Mayhem. Here’s what Page told Variety’s Tatiana Siegel: "I really admire how Drew constantly challenges herself as an artist. She's proven herself as an actress and a producer, and I have no doubt she'll bring great vision and creativity to the director's chair. I can't wait to kick ass on wheels!"
