The Buzz: "Signs," "Full Frontal," and "Master of Disguise"
A psychological thriller, a comedy for the kids and a low budget film with some big name stars are all coming to a theater near you.
(WSVN) Funnyman Dana Carvey is just that in "The Master of Disguise" -- the man of a thousand and one faces.
"The question is not who I am the question is who are you."
In this comedy adventure, Carvey plays 36 different characters -- everyone from turtle man to his signature George W. Bush.
Actor Dana Carvey says, "I just wanted to make this really, make kids laugh, that was the primary goal, and then the mom and the dad with them be amused as well."
Mel Gibson is back on the big screen as a farmer in the suspense thriller "Signs".
Gibson's chacter encounters a strange phenomenoa, when crop circles start popping up in his corn field.
Joaquin Phoenix stars in this one too, as Gibson's kid brother.
The movie is about the supernatural -- something Gibson won't rule out.
Actor Mel Gibson says, "In my life maybe a dozen times, like really strange things have happened to make your hair stick up on end."
"They don't strike you as networkey, freaky actors."
Julia Roberts, David Duchovny, Frasier's David Hyde Pierce, and Blair Underwood are just part of Full Frontal's ensemble cast.
"It's a movie, within a movie, within a movie, so each character is an actor, within a movie, within a movie."
The adult comedy is the unofficial sequel to Director Steven Soderbergh's "Sex, Lies and Videotape".
It's a low budget film by Hollywood standards.
The tab for this one a mere 2 million bucks and it was shot in less than 3 weeks.
"Full Frontal", "Signs" and "The Master of Disguise" open on Friday.
