Here’s what’s playing in selected cities this weekend, and as David Letterman always says, we just pray to God your city has been selected.

Whatever Works
Buy tickets at Fandango!
Larry David stars in Woody Allen’s latest as Boris, a bitter, cynical old atheist ex-scientist who complains non-stop about the meaninglessness of everything while ostensibly teaching chess to kids, and who reluctantly forms a weird friendship with a young runaway (Evan Rachel Wood).

Dead Snow
Buy tickets at Fandango!
Two words: Zombie Nazis. We could say this was a huge cult favorite on the midnight circuit at Sundance earlier this year, but do you really need more than “zombie Nazis?”

The End of the Line
Buy tickets on Fandango!
Mankind is in danger of irrevocably destroying the ecosystem of the ocean via the massive amount of overfishing it does, and this doc explains why.

Buy tickets at Fandango!
An award-winning stop-motion animation film about a booklet advertised for only $9.99 that changes the life of a directionless man, who then becomes determined to share his revelations with everyone he meets. Featuring the voices of Geoffrey Rush and Anthony LaPaglia.
