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)

Atlas Shrugged Part 2
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
Peter Dinklage and a cast of about 200 characters thrust mightily into an epic second season of Seven Kingdoms sword & sorcery drama—and that’s not all that gets thrust into mightily, if thy catcheth my ribald drift. No? OK, lots of weird sex. (HBO)

The Pill
(Not) just in time for Valentine’s Day: After a night of unprotected sex, Fred (Noah Bean) pretends to have romantic feelings for Mindy (Rachel Boston) for 12 hours until he’s sure she’s taken her second morning-after pill. Aw, sweet! (Passion River)
