opening in the U.K. April 24: ‘Observe and Report,’ ‘The Uninvited,’ ‘State of Play,’ ‘Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel,’ more

Observe and Report: I bet Paul Blart went to see this at the mall multiplex and wet himself.

The Uninvited: I can’t remember — is this the one about the scary person who haunts a family and rocks them out of their ritzy upper-midde-class comfort, or is it the one about the scary person who haunts a family and rocks them out of their ritzy upper-midde-class comfort?

State of Play: I can’t wait to hear what my British readers — whom I’m assuming are far more likely to have seen the 2003 BBC miniseries — will have to say about this.
Outlander: Apparently this got a limited release in the U.S. in January, and how did I miss it? Wow:

During the reign of the Vikings, Kainan, a man from a far-off world, crash lands on Earth, bringing with him an alien predator known as the Moorwen. Though both man and monster are seeking revenge for violence committed against them, Kainan leads the alliance to kill the Moorwen by fusing his advanced technology with the Viking’s Iron Age weaponry.


Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel: I just posted the trailer. Apparently it’s Doctor Who meets Shaun of the Dead, which sounds pretty cool. I haven’t seen the film, but I can’t wait to have the chance.

Encounters at the End of the World: Or, Werner Herzog Goes to Antarctica. I think I need to see this… [official site]

Shifty: It’s hard out there in London on a crack dealer. [official site]

City Rats: Apparently this is a movie about how life is not like how it is in the movies. [official site]

Thanks, Bruno. I’m appropriating your compliment for under the bias meter…
