There’s only one new movie opening nationwide (although The Runaways is expanding to more theaters), and it’s the Tina Fey/Steve Carell comedy Date Night. They’ve been closely associated on the NBC Thursday night lineup, but they’ve never actually worked together before. In limited release are The Square and Letters to God.

Date Night
Buy tickets at Fandango!
Tina Fey and Steve Carell are a married couple rundown by their routine and their children. Their attempt to have a speical date night in the city goes crazy when they impulsively decide to swipe someone else’s unclaimed reservations at a fancy restaurant. That turns into a case of drastically mistaken identity and lands the unsuspecting couple right in the middle of a dispute between dirty cops and drug dealers.

In Limited Release:

Letters to God
Buy tickets at Fandango!
A nine-year-old boy with cancer holds onto his positive attitude by writing letters to God, and he inspires the sullen postman who carries his letters to do something special with them.

The Square
Buy tickets at Fandango!
A man (David Roberts) trapped in a loveless marriage has an affair with a beautiful and troubled woman (Claire van der Boom), and that eventually draws him into a life of crime. She’s made off with her criminal husband’s loot, but their plan to take the money and run goes horribly awry when they hire a professional arsonist (Joel Edgerton).
