Green Lantern (wide) Another big-budget superhero film; this one seems even more ambitious than last month’s Thor. Anyone catch the Green Lantern reference in the Lee “Scratch” Perry documentary that screened at the I-House a couple weeks back?
Submarine (Ritz at the Bourse) The talented actor/writer/director Richard Ayoade (The IT Crowd, Garth Merenghi’s Darkplace, The Mighty Boosh) makes his feature debut with this prep school tale that will fit nicely on your DVD shelf between Rushmore and Harold and Maude.
The Trip (Ritz Five) The recent BBC series directed by Michael Winterbottom and starring comedic greats Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon is edited into a feature length film that reveals the stars’ hidden lives as they embark on a countryside restaurant tour.
Beginners (Ritz Five) Mike Mills (Thumbsucker) directs this tale of a son’s (Ewan McGregor) reaction to his elderly father’s (Christopher Plummer) unexpected announcements that he is both dying and homosexual.
