Both PRECIOUS and BROTHERS are currently in theaters. PRECIOUS has grossed over $38 million since opening in limited release on Friday, November 6; and will move into wide release this weekend. BROTHERS is in its third week of wide release.

Set in 1987, PRECIOUS is a dramatic, vividly realized story of a Harlem teenager who overcomes tremendous obstacles to discover her own worth, beauty and potential. PRECIOUS is directed by Lee Daniels from a screenplay by Geoffrey Fletcher based on the book Push, a novel by Sapphire. The film stars Mo'Nique, Paula Patton, Mariah Carey, Sherri Shepherd, Lenny Kravitz and introduces Gabourey Sidibe. PRECIOUS was produced by Lee Daniels, Sarah Siegel-Magness and Gary Magness. Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry, Lisa Cortes and Tom Heller are Executive Producers; Simone Sheffield serves as Co-Executive Producer; Mark G. Mathis is Co-Producer; and Asger Hussain serves as Associate Producer.

In BROTHERS, a decorated Marine goes missing overseas and his black-sheep younger brother steps in to care for his wife and children at home--with consequences that will shake the foundation of the entire family. BROTHERS is directed by Jim Sheridan from a screenplay by David Benioff. It stars Tobey Maguire, Jake Gyllenhaal, Natalie Portman, Sam Shepard, Bailee Madison, Taylor Grace Geare, and Mare Winningham. The producers are Ryan Kavanaugh, Sigurjon Sighvatsson, and Michael De Luca. Executive producers are Tucker Tooley, Jon Feltheimer, Scott Fischer, and Zach Schiff-Abrams, with co-executive producer Jeremiah Samuels and co-producers Kenneth Halsband, Mark Fischer and Matt Battaglia. BROTHERS is based on the Danish film BRODRE by Susanne Bier and Anders Thomas Jensen.

"Mad Men," set to launch its fourth season on AMC in 2010, has earned a long list of honors, including two Golden Globe� Awards for Best Television Series - Drama, two Emmy� Awards for Outstanding Drama Series, a Peabody Award and two Writers Guild Awards, among many others. Created by Matthew Weiner, "Mad Men" is set in New York in the 1960's and follows the lives of the ruthlessly competitive men and women of Madison Avenue advertising when the industry was at its height of glamour, power and prestige. Produced by Lionsgate in association with Weiner Bros. and executive produced by Weiner and Scott Hornbacher, the series stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, Vincent Kartheiser, Elisabeth Moss, Christina Hendricks, John Slattery, Bryan Batt, Michael Gladis, Aaron Staton, Rich Sommer and Robert Morse.

"Nurse Jackie," which earned a Writers Guild nomination this week for Best New Series and an AFI Award as one of the Top 10 Outstanding Television Programs of 2009, returns to Showtime for its second season in March 2010.

The series stars Edie Falco as the title character, a strong-willed, fiercely loyal, deeply dedicated - but very flawed - emergency nurse in a complicated New York City hospital. Also starring are Eve Best, Peter Facinelli, Merritt Wever, Paul Schulze, Anna Deavere Smith, Dominic Fumusa, Ruby Jerins, Mackenzie Aladjem, Arjun Gupta and Stephen Wallem. Co-produced by Showtime Networks and Lionsgate, the series was created by Evan Dunsky and Liz Brixius & Linda Wallem and is executive produced by Wallem, Brixius, Richie Jackson, Christine Zander, Mark Hudis and Caryn Mandabach.
