I Am Number Four
(wide) “John is an extraordinary teen, masking his true identity and passing as a typical high school student to elude a deadly enemy seeking to destroy him. Three like him have already been killed … he is Number Four,” says iMDb.
From the director of Disturbia and Eagle EyeI am not a number!

(wide) Liam Neeson awakens from a coma to find that his identity has been stolen.  I bet he teams up with a pretty young woman to unravel a conspiracy.
I was at a movie recently and at the end of the trailer for Unknown a guy behind me scoffed and yelled out “Taken 2!“.  Crickets.  It does look similar to Taken though, which I haven’t actually seen due to my unfair prejudice against PG-13 rated action films that will coincidentally keep me from seeing this film.

Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son
(wide) The third in a series of cross-dressing comedies that I’ll never see.

Cedar Rapids
(Ritz East) Indie-minded comedy set at an insurance convention starring some of today’s most likable comedic actors (Ed Helms, John C. Reilly, Rob Corddry).  It’s directed by the great Miguel Arteta (Chuck & Buck, The Good Girl) thus I have high hopes despite the rather lackluster trailer.

Outside the Law
(Ritz at the Bourse) 138 minute French film about three brothers who fight for Algeria’s independence after WWII.

The Housemaid
(Ritz at the Bourse) Modern update of a South Korean classic concerning the ramifications of the titular Housemaid’s affair with her employer.  Also currently available for your viewing pleasure via OnDemand.
