“21”

A team of cunning MIT students uses counting cards and an intricate system of hand signals to break the bank at Las Vegas casinos. With Jim Sturgess, Kate Bosworth, Laurence Fishburne and Kevin Spacey. Directed by Robert Luketic. PG-13 for some violence, and sexual content including partial nudity.

“THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL”

Like the sibling rivals of the title, this film has ideas above its station. Not content to be a mildly diverting royal bodice ripper set in Tudor England with Eric Bana as Henry VII and Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson as the Boleyn sisters, it spirals out of control into the kind of overwrought dramaturgy it’s ill-prepared to deliver. (1:54) PG-13 for mature, thematic elements, sexual content and some violent images.

“SHUTTER”

Newlyweds discover apparitional images in photographs developed after a tragic accident. With Joshua Jackson and Rachael Taylor. Directed by Masayuki Ochiai. PG-13 for terror, disturbing images, sexual content and language.

“DR. SEUSS’ HORTON HEARS A WHO!”

Jim Carrey is the existential elephant and Steve Carell is the head Who in this CGI adaptation of the children’s classic about an earnest pachyderm’s drive to save a civilization perched on a small speck of dust. Directed by Jimmy Hayward and Steve Martino.

“10,000 BC”

A prehistoric hunter pursues a group of warlords who raid his village and kidnap his true love. With Steven Strait, Camilla Belle and Cliff Curtis. Directed by Roland Emmerich. PG-13 for sequences of intense action and violence.

“DR. SEUSS’ HORTON HEARS A WHO!”

“MISS PETTIGREW LIVES FOR A DAY”

It’s hard not to like a movie in which Frances McDormand spends half her time on screen staring longingly at leftover scraps of bread and half-eaten apples, as she does in the charmingly featherweight “Miss Pettigrew.” Set in London in the days leading up to World War II, McDormand plays a down-on-her-luck governess who has just been fired from her last job. Desperate for a job and blacklisted from her employment agency, she inserts herself into the temporary residence of an American cabaret singer (Amy Adams) and aspiring actress who has put in a request for a social secretary. This film is directed by Bharat Nalluri with a light touch and a great eye for costumes and sets, which are gorgeous enough to make up for any contrivances in the plot. (1:32) PG-13 for some partial nudity and innuendo.

“VANTAGE POINT”

A presidential assassination attempt is the focal point in the lives of several people as we see the same moment played out from each of their perspectives. With Dennis Quaid, Matthew Fox, Forest Whitaker, Sigourney Weaver and William Hurt. Directed by Pete Travis. PG-13 for sequences of intense violence and action, some disturbing images and brief strong language.

“DRILLBIT TAYLOR”

A down-and-out soldier of fortune answers an ad placed by a group of besieged high school freshmen seeking protection from a predatory bully. With Owen Wilson, Troy Gentile and David Dorfman. Directed by Steven Brill. PG-13 for crude sexual references throughout, strong bullying, language, drug references and partial nudity.
