Gangster Squad
Pretty (Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Josh Brolin) and not-so-pretty (Sean Penn, Nick Nolte) actors play Dick Tracy dress-up in the period Los Angeles crime drama seen by several hundred bachelorette parties in 2012. (Warner Bros.)

Assassin’s Run
When her rich husband (Christian Slater) is murdered by the Russian mob, a ballerina (Sofya Skya) uses her ballet and martial-arts skills to get her kidnapped daughter back! It’s Black Swan meets White Nights meets Kill Bill! (Lionsgate)

Cheech & Chong’s Animated Movie
Only 40 years too late, it’s Cheech & Chong’s most infamous comedy routines in cartoon form: Teach your grandkids about “Dave’s Not Here,” “Sgt. Stedenko,” “Earache My Eye” and more. Fox says, “It’s high-larious!” Yes, really. (Fox)

Cold Prey 2
In the sequel to the Norwegian slasher-flick blockbuster, Jannicke’s (Ingrid Bolso Berdal) nightmare begins all over again as the Mountain Man comes back to life. Can she stop him before he kills everyone in the hospital? Nei. (Shout Factory)

Family Weekend
Fed up with her inattentive parents (Kristin Chenoweth and Matthew Modine), a teen jump-roping champion(!) kidnaps them and holds them hostage, then things somehow get dark and R-rated. How is this not an ABC Family series? (Arc)
