- Stop-Loss: Ryan Phillippe and Channing Tatum star in Peirce's contemporary war drama about a soldier, freshly returned from Iraq, forced to return to combat by the fickle U.S. Army. Abbie Cornish, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Timothy Olyphant also star.
- Run, Fatboy, Run: David Schwimmer (yes, that David Schwimmer) makes his feature film directorial debut with this comedy, starring Simon Pegg as another lovable loser who trains for a marathon in order to win back ex-fiancée Thandie Newton from ... Hank Azaria?
- 21: Kevin Spacey teaches six MIT students (including dreamy Jim Sturgess) how to count cards and win big in Vegas in this based-on-a-true story drama; co-stars Kate Bosworth and Laurence Fishburne.
- Flawless: No, not the one with Philip Seymour Hoffman in drag; Demi Moore and Michael Caine star in this heist thriller set in swinging 60's London. Let's hope Demi doesn't try for an English accent.
- And finally - Superhero Movie: The latest big screen spoof from the folks who keep giving us Scary Movies even though we don't ask for them; this one takes on the likes of Spider-Man, et al. And if that isn't enough to keep you away: beware of angry Fanboy fanboys.
