2012

It’s the end of the world, and only John Cusack can stop it! Actually, no—but he’s got mad stunt-driver skills and a nag ex-wife (Amanda Peet) to save! Also starring Woody Harrelson and a 60-second cartoon that’s better than the movie.

Alice

The dark SyFy Channel update of Alice In Wonderland, with a martial-arts instructor (Caterina Scorsone) who discovers an alternate universe where the Queen of Hearts sucks souls and rabbits are robots. It’s a good kinda weird. (Lionsgate.com)

Bitch Slap

A stripper, a killer and a business woman (?) go after stolen jewels stashed in a criminal gang’s desert hideout; excessive violence and excessive-r clothes-ripping ensue. Presumably based on a very wet Quentin Tarantino dream.

Gentlemen Broncos

From Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess, the tale of a loser (Michael Angarano) whose story is ripped off by a fantasy author (Flight of the Conchords’ Jemaine Clement) at writers camp. Hey, at least it’s not Nacho Libre.

The Penthouse

A reality-TV winner and his bros move into a Hollywood penthouse and party like idiots. Also starring Ed Begley Jr. and Kaley Cuoco (Big Bang Theory) as the tall guy and the braless blonde. Respectively, let’s hope.
