A CIA “exfiltration” specialist (Ben Affleck) devises a scheme to free American refugees trapped in 1979 Iran: filming a fake Hollywood sci-fi movie and sneaking them out as the crew. Based on true events and awful fashion. (Warner Bros.)

Anna Karenina
Keira Knightley, Jude Law, Emily Watson, Kelly Macdonald and several other proper British actors star in Tolstoy’s epic tale of love, adultery, family and great hair in 19th-century Russian high society. Just ignore the accents. (Focus Features)

Proving that the free market doesn’t decide everything, the dullest movie of 2011 gets a sequel—with a new Dagny (Samantha Mathis) rushing to save the world from hippies and intellectuals. Hippies, I can see, but … (Fox)

Game of Thrones: Season 2
