These are the movies opening in selected cities this weekend, and as David Letterman always says, we just pray to God that your city has been selected.

The Brothers Bloom
Buy tickets on Fandango!
Adrien Brody is a reluctant grifter who lets his eager brother (Mark Ruffalo) talk him into one more job, swindling a bored and eccentric heiress (Rachel Weisz) out of her fortune. Things get complicated when their initial plan doesn’t work, and they wind up taking her on as an accomplice in their con jobs, with unexpectedly funny and romantic results. You can watch the first 7 minutes of the film right here on Fancast!

Big Man Japan
Buy tickets on Fandango!
A strange and funny pseudo-mockumentary about a down-on-his-luck man whose day job is to turn into a giant warrior to fight “baddie” monsters who try to destroy Japan.

In this festival favorite, Odd Horten is a Norwegian engineer facing retirement after 40 years of rail service, and a strangely surreal journey towards a new life begins.
