Resident Evil: Retribution
In the fifth and most incomprehensible Resident Evil installment yet, Alice (Milla Jovovich) is back in the leather unitard and battling her way out of Umbrella’s underwater Arctic simulation complex. Yes, it looks ridiculously cool. (Screen Gems)

Killer Joe
When a drug dealer (Emile Hirsch) needs cash fast, he hires Killer Joe (Matthew McConaughey) to snuff his mother for the insurance money. In lieu of payment, Joe takes the kid’s younger sister (Juno Temple). A heartwarming holiday tale. (LDE)

A successful New York City hedge-fund magnate (Richard Gere) fights to keep financial fraud, a French mistress and manslaughter under wraps in this inspirational story that proves you really can have it all at 60. (Roadshow Attractions)

Premium Rush
An NYC bike messenger (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) possesses a valuable, dangerous package—which you can clearly see through his spandex (ba-dump-bump!). Why wasn’t this called Ride Like Hell, the promo poster tagline? Stoopid. (Sony)

The Words
A suspiciously good-looking writer (Bradley Cooper) steals a novel, which becomes a best-seller and everything’s swell—until the real author turns up. Also, two women (Zoe Saldana and Olivia Wilde) are after him. Rough life. (CBS Films)
