What's Playing 07/25/08

Ten years and finally we’re getting the sequel to The X-Files film that we’ve all been waiting for. This Friday also gives us all a chance to see John C. Reilly and Will Ferrell reunited for what looks to be a comedic gem. But neither of these films or any of those coming out in limited release will make you forget the fact that The Dark Knight is there for your viewing pleasure again and again and again.

Wide Release

X Files: I Want To Believe – Starring David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Amanda Peet, Xzibit, and more. In grand X-Files manner, the film’s storyline is being kept under wraps. This much can be revealed: It is a stand-alone story in the tradition of some of the show’s most acclaimed and beloved episodes, and takes the complicated relationship between Fox Mulder and Dana Scully in unexpected directions. Mulder continues his unshakable quest for the truth, and Scully, the passionate, ferociously intelligent physician, remains inextricably tied to Mulder’s pursuits.

Step Brothers – Starring Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Mary Steenburgen, and Richard Jenkins. Two grown men, Brennan and Dale, are forced to deal with one of the most trying experiences in a child’s life…gaining a step brother. At first they hate each other’s guts and aren’t afraid to show it, but they soon realize they may have a lot more in common then first thought.

Limited Release

American Teen – A documentary on seniors at a high school in a small Indiana town and their various cliques.

Boy A – The story of a young ex-con Jack, newly released from serving a prison sentence for a murder he committed as a child. Opened on Wednesday, July 23.

Brideshead Revisited – The memoirs of Captain Charles Ryder who is stationed at Brideshead Castle during WWII and remembers his involvement with the owners of the Brideshead estate: the aristocratic yet Catholic Flyte family and in particular brother and sister Sebastian and Julia.

CSNY: Deja Vu – The war in Iraq is the backdrop as the Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young “Freedom of Speech Tour” crisscrosses North America. Echoes of Vietnam-era anti-war sentiment abound as the band connects with today’s audiences.

Baghead is expanding.
