Fanboys
A motley crew of Star Wars geeks (Christopher Marquette, Jay Baruchel, Dan Fogler and Kristen Bell) road-trip it to Skywalker Ranch in 1999 to sneak a peek at The Phantom Menace, which still sucks waaay more than this. WeinsteinCo.com

Friday Night Lights: Season 3
The high-school football series unwatched on two networks (NBC and DirecTV) kicks up the drama in Season 3, as the players prepare to graduate, and Coach Taylor begins receiving tomorrow’s newspaper today, and … what? NBCUni.com

My Bloody Valentine 3-D
The remake of the 1981 slasher “classic,” with more blood, nudity and dimensions— if you wear the glasses, anyway. Starring Jensen Eckles (Supernatural) and Jaime King (Gary Unmarried), neither of whom get naked. Sorry. Lionsgate.com

Paul Blart: Mall Cop
In the worst movie since The Phantom Menace, mall cop Paul Blart (Kevin James) fights off extreme-sports thieves armed with just a Segway and a mustache. Pitch: “It’s like Die Hard … in a suck factory!” Gather the kids ’round! Sony.com

True Blood: Season 1
Vampires go public in Alan Ball’s (Six Feet Under) HBO take on the southern gothic novels—it’s sexy time in the redneck Louisiana swamps, replete with racism, religion and drug metaphors galore. If Twilight weren’t a comedy … oh, it’s not? HBO.com
