Hesher (Ritz at the Bourse) Joseph Gordon-Levitt proves his acting chops in his portrayal of the type of suburban metalhead that every high school fears.  Good stuff.

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.

The Beaver (Ritz at the Bourse) Mel Gibson’s highly anticipated return to the big screen as a man who channels his issues through the titular hand puppet.  Jodie Foster directs/co-stars.

Everything Must Go (Ritz Five) Will Ferrell goes the “indie” route as a suburban alcoholic struggling to stay afloat.

Cracks (Ritz at the Bourse) The debut feature from Ridley Scott’s daughter is set in a scandalous female boarding school.  Sounds fun.

Bridesmaids (wide) Raunchy new comedy for girls.  At least that’s what people are saying.

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.
