Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark
A couple (Guy Pierce and Katie Holmes) move into—what else?—a haunted old mansion; soon, evil creatures in the basement are try steal their young daughter. Realtors always gloss over evil creatures in the basement. (FilmDistrict)

I Don’t Know How She Does It
A woman (Sarah Jessica Parker) attempts to balance a career, a husband, kids and a boss (Pierce Brosnan) we’re supposed to believe actually wants to tap “that.” Upside: Also starring Christina Hendricks and Olivia Munn. (The Weinstein Co.)

Mildred Pierce
Depression-era single mother Mildred Pierce (Kate Winslet) battles societal oppression, deceitful men and a hell-bitch of a daughter (Evan Rachel Wood) to survive in Los Angeles—and it’s only three hours longer than the 1945 movie. (HBO)

Red: Werewolf Hunter
When a human/werewolf peace pact is broken by a group of rogue ‘wolves, it’s up to Red (Felicia Day) and her band of militaristic hunters to stop a full-blown Lycan takeover. It’s almost as funny as Day’s The Guild. Almost. (Sony)
