In Time: Justin Timberlake headlines this action packed, sci-fi thriller from Gattaca mastermind Andrew Niccol. It’s a true mind-bender that asks the question:

What if money was replaced by time?

Amanda Seyfried co-stars in a movie that will make you think much of the time without wasting a second of yours. Check out Movie Fanatic’s In Time review.

The Rum Diary: This Johnny Depp picture is not a blockbuster for everyone, but for fans of the star and the late Hunter S. Thompson, The Rum Diary delivers.

As Movie Fanatic’s Rum Diary review notes, it’s a work that blends powerful messages with complex performances from its cast and an exquisite ’60s feel.

Puss in Boots: An odds-on favorite to run away from the box office competition, Antonio Banderas brings his swashbuckling Shrek character back for the lead role.

Adventurous, sweet and uncannily smart in its introduction of new characters such as Kitty Softpaws (Salma Hayek) and Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis), Puss’ origins story takes audiences back to the beginning and is fun for all ages.

The Double: Richard Gere and Topher Grace star in a CIA thriller about an agent (Gere) who retired after spending a career tracking an international assassin.

Anonymous: Screenwriter John Orloff, after extensive research, presents Anonymous and its idea that William Shakespeare did not write all his masterpieces.

While clearly different, Anonymous also falls under “origins” stories with Rum and Puss in Boots. Read Movie Fanatic’s full Anonymous review for more insight.
