"Juggling is the key. Some days I do it well and some days less so," Garner revealed to the magazine.
Garner continued: "When one of us is working, the other can be home with the kids. We also have a wonderful nanny, and both of our mums pitch in.
"I can't do movie after movie and have a husband that works as much as mine does. There are tough choices to make. But I'm lucky that I have the options."
Affleck joked in April that he would be "Mr Mum" for a stretch this spring in »

March 14, 2013 -Miguel Arteta is in talks to become the Third director for Alexander and the Horrible, Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Day for Disney. Arteta's forte seems to be outrageous comedy, his previous films are Michael Cera's Youth In Revolt and Ed Helms' Cedar Rapids, both of which were Rated R. Lately, he's been directing episodes of TV shows including the pilot for "The Carrie Diaries" and an episode of "New Girl." This is a straight up children's movie, I'm not sure why this project keeps attracting directors »

UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 5th to Sunday 7th April 2013...
With little in the way of new competition, DreamWorks' CG-animated family adventure The Croods held on to top spot at the UK box office, pulling in £2.36 million to make it three weeks in a row. Second place was also unchanged, despite the fact that G.I. Joe: Retaliation suffered a steep drop, banking £1.06 million after a decent £2.76 million opening last weekend, while the biggest new release of the week Dark Skies was the only other film in the chart to break seven figures, with a £1,031,948 debut enough to claim third.
Moving on and Danny Boyle's Trance and Bryan Singer's Jack the Giant Slayer both fell one spot apiece to fourth and fifth, while Sam Raimi's fantasy adventure Oz the Great and Powerful was another non-mover in sixth. Stephenie Meyer adaptation The Host »

Tell us about the films you've seen in the past few days – and find out what our critics made of them
Did you visit the cinema this weekend? See anything good or bad? Maybe you opted to stay at home and watch movies on TV. Either way, we'd like to hear about your recent viewing in the comments thread below.
Here's what our critics had to say about recent releases:
Peter Bradshaw said: Spring Breakers is [Harmony] Korine's most technically competent and fluent movie … Korine has given us a violent pulp true romance … a preselected, pre-auditioned representation of youth and beauty … There is an undeniable directorial strut in Spring Breakers. Where, precisely, he is strutting to is another question. read more
Philip French said: A subtle, intelligent picture with a suitably resonant title, it quietly observes the internal dynamics of the Fugue String Quartet, an internationally »
Spring Breakers (18)
The new American dream/nightmare of the endless beach party is both celebrated and satirised in Korine's woozy Florida tale. The story is fittingly loose – four naive teens turn to criminal means to fund their hedonism – but it's more of an experience: a dubstep-tracked collage of neon, Day-Glo and tanned flesh, all facilitated by Franco's fantastically watchable gangsta rapper.
A Late Quartet (15)
A respected New York string quartet is struck by an excess of issues here: terminal illness, infidelity, professional jealousy, you name it. Without the distinguished cast, its highbrow melodramas would seem ludicrous.
The Expatriate (15)

Cindy (Jennifer Garner) and Jim (Joel Edgerton) are desperate to be parents. However, when they’re told by their doctor that this won’t happen naturally, they decide to indulge their dreams one final time by burying a box in their back garden filled with all the personality traits their ideal child would bear – kind, honest to a fault and musical, to name a few. Overnight, a magical storm occurs and Timothy (Cj Adams), a young boy with leaves on his ankles, is thrust into Cindy and Jim’s life.
Dreamt up by actor Ahmet Zappa and written and directed by Peter Hedges, The Odd Life of Timothy Green immediately asks you to suspend your deepest beliefs and simply accept its desire to be a warm-hearted family-orientated fable. This would be possible if everything about its mere concept, let alone its scorched execution, wasn’t so downright disturbing. It’s »

Employees at the Walt Disney Co. are bracing for layoffs that are expected in the coming weeks as part of a reorganization of key operations.
It is believed that the company’s movie studio will be hardest hit, particularly in the areas of home entertainment, production and marketing, according to multiple sources familiar with matter.
The exact number of reductions are still being determined, as Disney brass conclude a company-wide review process that tasked each division with ensuring that staff levels are in line with the company’s needs in a changing marketplace, particularly in divisions affected by shifts in new media and technologies. The internal audit was ordered late last year by Disney chief executive Bob Iger and chief financial officer Jay Rasulo to identify areas of redundancy and departments that need revamping amid changing business models.
Many at the studio expect that the cuts and restructuring will occur »

This movie about an infertile couple who grow a son in their garden is sentimental, glutinous and infantile.
"Odd"? Try "tremendously annoying, creepy and reactionary". Somewhere in the dark heartland of America there is a great yearning for these quirky-icky fables, and here's another, from the pen of author and director Peter Hedges. This film is sentimental and artlessly sinister: like a cross between Mary Shelley and John Irving, with a dash of the equally unendurable Benjamin Button movie. Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton play Cindy and Jim Green, a couple longing for kids, but infertile. In their agony, and indulging in a kind of grief therapy, they compile notes of what they wanted their child to be like and bury them in the garden. Over a stormy night, a miraculous child emerges from the soil to bring joy and wonderment into their lives and the whole community: he is »
