The Latest in Theaters: Cavemen, Skater Boys and Miss Pettigrew

Quite the eclectic mix of new movies this week, ranging from big budget blockbuster wannabes to potential indie breakouts:
  • 10,000 B.C.: Roland Emmerich's prehistoric adventure is hoping for some of that 300 springtime box office bounty; plot is a tad reminiscent of Apocalypto.
  • Paranoid Park: Gus Van Sant's latest (an Independent Spirit Award Best Picture nominee) takes a look at skateboard culture; plot is a tad reminiscent of River's Edge.
  • Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day: Two of our faves, Frances McDormand and Amy Adams, team up in this charming period confection, co-starring Pushing Daisies' Lee Pace.
  • The Bank Job: Jason Statham butches it up again in this "based on a true story" crime caper.
  • Married Life: Chris Cooper, Patricia Clarkson and Rachel McAdams are the three points of a love triangle ... with Pierce Brosnan providing the homicidal solution.
