13 Assassins (Ritz at the Bourse) The great Koji Yakusho stars in this faithful remake of the 1963 samurai flick. The first Philly-area theatrical run for a Takashi Miike film since Gozu played the Roxy back in 2004. One week only.
Priest (wide) Big-budget 3-D adaptation of a virtually unknown comic book. It actually looks like a ton of fun largely thanks to a character modeled after Eastwood’s Man with No Name. I’ll pay to see this one.
