"Fun With Dick and Jane" trailer Video
The classic tale of love and misunderstanding unfolds in class-conscious England near the close of the 18th century. The five Bennet sisters ? Lizzie (Keira Knightley), Jane (Rosamund Pike), Lydia (Jena Malone), Mary (Talulah Riley) and Kitty (Carey Mulligan) ? have been raised well aware of their mother's (two-time Academy Award nominee Brenda Blethyn) fixation on finding them husbands and securing set futures. The spirited and intelligent Lizzie, however, strives to live her life with a broader perspective, as encouraged by her doting father (Donald Sutherland). When wealthy bachelor Mr. Bingley (Simon Woods) takes up residence in a nearby mansion, the Bennets are abuzz. Amongst the man's sophisticated circle of London friends and the influx of young militia officers, surely there will be no shortage of suitors for the Bennet sisters. Eldest daughter Jane, serene and beautiful, seems poised to win Mr. Bingley's heart. For her part, Lizzie meets with the handsome and, it would seem, snobbish Mr. Darcy (Matthew Macfadyen), and the battle of the sexes is joined. Their encounters are frequent and spirited yet far from encouraging. Lizzie finds herself even less inclined to accept a marriage proposal from a distant cousin, Mr. Collins and, supported by her father, stuns her mother and Mr. Collins by declining. When the heretofore good-natured Mr. Bingley abruptly departs for London, devastating Jane, Lizzie holds Mr. Darcy culpable for contributing to the heartbreak. But a crisis involving youngest sister Lydia soon opens Lizzie's eyes to the true nature of her relationship with Mr. Darcy. The ensuing rush of feelings leaves no one unchanged, and inspires the Bennets and everyone around them to reaffirm what is most important in life. Also starring Judi Dench.

"A Scanner Darkly" is set in suburban Orange County, California in a future where America has lost the war on drugs. When one reluctant undercover cop is ordered to start spying on his friends, he is launched on a paranoid journey into the absurd, where identities and loyalties are impossible to decode. It is a cautionary tale of drug use based on the novel by Philip K. Dick and his own experiences. Like a graphic novel come to life, "A Scanner Darkly" uses live action photography overlaid with an advanced animation process (interpolated rotoscoping) to create a haunting, highly stylized vision of the future. The technology, first employed in Richard Linklater's 2001 film "Waking Life," has evolved to produce even more emotional impact and detail. Written for the screen and directed by Richard Linklater, the film stars Keanu Reeves, Robert Downey Jr., Woody Harrelson, Winona Ryder and Rory Cochrane.
There's an excruciatingly difficult time in every young man's life between when he starts thinking about sex and when he can actually do something about it. Meet Deacon (Eric von Detten), Matt (Daniel Farber), and Fred (Tony Denman), three typical American teenagers stuck right in the middle of that horrible age when it seems like life is passing you by while you're just standing still. They'll do anything for even a glimpse of sex and spend their mornings pirating X-rated movies from Fred's after-school job at the video store. But when Fred is fired, the well runs dry, and the young entrepreneurs come up with a new plan: make their own "adult" film. Along the way, they interview a gaggle of toothless hookers, butt heads with Deacon's nemesis Jake (Riley Smith), befriend the sexy but no-nonsense stripper turned actress Ashley (Sarah Jane Potts), and fuel the wrath of local porno king Vic Ramalot (Horatio Sanz). It isn't long before our heroes have to get themselves out of the mess they've gotten into - which turns out to be the wackiest series of misadventures ever to take place in high school. Directed by David M. Evans. Also starring Tom Arnold and Amy Smart.
"Slither" is an edgy blend of heart-stopping terror, wry humor and surprising humanity from genre-bending screenwriter James Gunn, whose "Dawn of the Dead" became one of 2004's most surprising hits. The sleepy town of Wheelsy could be any small town in America-somewhat quaint and gentle, peopled with friendly folks who mind their own business. But just beneath the surface charm, something unnamed and evil has arrived...and is growing. No one seems to notice as telephone poles become clogged with missing pet flyers, or when one of the town's richest citizens, Grant Grant (Michael Rooker), begins to act strangely. But when farmers' livestock turn up horribly mutilated and a young woman goes missing, Sheriff Bill Pardy (Nathan Fillion) and his team, aided by Grant's wife Starla (Elizabeth Banks), uncover the dark force laying siege to their town...and come face-to-face with an older-than-time organism intent on absorbing and devouring all life on Earth. "Slither" is the feature film directing debut of screenwriter James Gunn and stars Nathan Fillion, Elizabeth Banks, Gregg Henry and Michael Rooker.

"Separate Lies" is a compelling, humor-tinged romantic mystery that is not so much a "who done it" as an exploration of the riddle of why people make the fatal errors they do - in life, in marriage and when their decisions count the very most. By exposing the raw inner world of an ideal-seeming marriage that has fallen into peril in the wake of a crime, the film weaves themes of secrecy, betrayal and forgiveness through a driving narrative and intense performances focused on uncovering the primal human truths that can lie beneath the most placid surfaces. From Julian Fellowes, the academy award-winning writer of "Gosford Park". Starring Tom Wilkinson, Emily Watson, and Rupert Everett.
An unrelenting demon haunts and torments a teenage girl and her wealthy family in 1800's Tennessee.

The film stars Donald Sutherland, Sissy Spacek, Rachel Hurd-Wood, James D'Arcy, and Thom Fell.
Jarhead (the self-imposed moniker of the Marines) follows "Swoff" (Jake Gyllenhaal), a third-generation enlistee, from a sobering stint in boot camp to active duty, sporting a sniper's rifle and a hundred-pound ruck on his back through Middle East deserts with no cover from intolerable heat or from Iraqi soldiers, always potentially just over the next horizon. Swoff and his fellow Marines sustain themselves with sardonic humanity and wicked comedy on blazing desert fields in a country they don't understand against an enemy they can't see for a cause they don't fully fathom. Jamie Foxx portrays Sergeant Sykes, a Marine lifer who heads up Swofford's scout/sniper platoon, while Peter Sarsgaard is Swoff's friend and mentor, Troy, a die-hard member of STA-their elite Marine Unit. Chris Cooper also stars.
An irreverent and true account of a war that was antiseptically packaged a decade ago, "Jarhead" is laced with dark wit, honest inquisition and episodes that are at once surreal and poignant, tragic and absurd. Directed by Sam Mendes.
A new take on Wes Craven's 1977 film of the same name, "The Hills Have Eyes" is the story of a family road trip that goes terrifyingly awry.
