Dark Tide
A “shark whisperer” (Academy Award- and Golden Globe-winning actress Halle Berry) haunted by a diver’s death is lured back to deadly Shark Alley by a thrill-seeking millionaire. What’s the direct-to-DVD equivalent of an Oscar? (Lionsgate)

As always happens, an ex-criminal (Mark Wahlberg) is dragged back into the life to settle his brother’s debt with a ruthless drug lord (Giovanni Ribisi … really?). Shooting, yelling, shirtlessness and Kate Beckinsale ensue (Universal)

Thor at the Bus Stop
Norse god Thor (Jerry Thompson) makes his way through the suburbs for his final battle to save Earth and maybe score some fruit snacks. We may have a contender for that direct-to-DVD Oscar—watch your ass, Halle Berry! (Video Communications)

Reuniting the Rubins
Timothy Spall (The King’s Speech), James Callis (Battlestar Galactica) and Rhona Mitra (Boston Legal) star in the story of an estranged family’s reunion that may either be a heartwarming affair or start a war in South Africa. (Monterey)

11-11-11: The Prophecy
At 11:11 on the 11th day of the 11th month of 2011, a God-killing demon enters the realm of Earth through—what else?—the 11th gate of Heaven. From the director of Saws II, III and IV, but not Saw XI. (Rocket Releasing)
