You'll find these new films in theaters this weekend.
Kevin Spacey, trying to wash the stench of “Horrible Bosses” off his resume, joins Jeremy Irons, Paul Bettany and Stanley Tucci in a timely indictment of the evil that men do on Wall Street. “Star Trek’s” Zachary Quinto stars as a stock market analyst who becomes privy to a massive case of financial maleficence.
THE THREE MUSKETEERS
In yet another needless remake (“Footloose” and “Straw Dogs”), Orlando Bloom, Luke Evans, Logan Lerman and Juno Temple do their swishbuckling thing under the keen eyes of Oscar winner Christoph Waltz.
Michael Shannon, the chronic scene-stealer from “Reservation Road” and “The Runaways,” finally gets a much-deserved starring role playing a mentally unbalanced man suffering the effects of disturbing dreams. Jessica Chastain, who seems to be in a dozen films this year, plays his concerned wife.
PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 3
The third of these popular frightfests is sure to offer more of the same mix of suspense and scares, although they are starting to grow a bit repetitive.
THE MILL & THE CROSS
