And So It Goes

A crotchety old realtor (Michael Douglas) enlists the help of his neighbor (Diane Keaton) when he's suddenly left in charge of the young granddaughter he never knew existed. I think you can see where this is going, heart-melting-wise and romance-wise. 94 minutes PG-13. (Opens Friday 7/18)

Hercules

Wrestlin' thespian Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson stars as legendary demigod Hercules, hired to protect the King of Thrace and his daughter from a tyrannical warlord. Ian McShane, John Hurt, Rufus Sewell, Peter Mullan and Joseph Fiennes mill around in the background trying to look Greek.

The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz

Computer programming prodigy and "information activist" Aaron Swartz is profiled in this tragic, thought-provoking documentary. Swartz helped develop the RSS format and founded Reddit before taking his own life at 26. At the time he was about to stand trial for his "hacktivism." Director Brian Knappenberger previously helmed We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists, and his newest high-tech doc contemplates whether computer geniuses should use their skills for the monetary benefit of corporate America or for social good. 105 minutes Unrated. (Opens Monday 7/28)
Guild Cinema Mon-Thu 8:30

Kick

Salman Khan (Dabangg, Bodyguard) stars in this remake of a popular 2009 Telugu film of the same name about a thrill-seeker who becomes a badass, mask-wearing superthief. As in most Indian films, the explosive action is rounded out with lots of wacky romantic comedy and plenty of musical numbers. In Hindi with English subtitles. 146 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 7/25)
Century Rio Fri-Thu 11:35am, 3:10, 6:45, 10:20

Life Itself

Famed film critic Roger Ebert speaks his mind in this biographical documentary based on his bestselling memoir of the same name. Director Steve James (Hoop Dreams) started filming mere months before Ebert passed away from complications of thyroid cancer. Despite the loss of his voice (he answers questions via email), Ebert remains a vivid, colorful character. The film splits its time between Ebert's unapologetic life story and his rough final days--but it's hard not to leave with the impression that the guy lived exactly the sort of life he wanted. 120 minutes R. (Opens Monday 7/28)
Guild Cinema Mon-Thu 3:30, 6:00

Lucy

French filmmaker Luc Besson (La Femme Nikita, Leon: The Professional, The Fifth Element) gets back into the swing of action filmmaking after a directing hiatus in which he wrote seemingly every other action film Hollywood came out with (The Transporter, Taxi, Revolver, Taken, From Paris With Love, District B13, Lockout, Colombiana, 3 Days to Kill). Scarlett Johansson stars as Besson's titular character, a woman tricked into becoming a mule for an experimental drug. When the bags of illegal chemicals in her stomach break open, she suddenly and mysteriously gains all the superpowers in the universe. We're talking Jackie Chan, all of the X-Men and Neo at the end of The Matrix combined. Naturally she uses these powers to get revenge on the bad people. 90 minutes R. (Opens Friday 7/25)

Monty Python and the Holy Grail

It's really just a wacky collection of surreal bits featuring the members of Monty Python dressed up in medieval outfits acting out the story of Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. But damned if this isn't a nonstop riot. You know most of the punch lines. You can sing most of the songs. You know the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow. You've got to see it! 90 minutes PG. (Sunday 7/27)

A Most Wanted Man

The spy novels of John le Carré make for gripping reading, but they rarely translate well into film. The deglamorized, workaday espionage world le Carré portrays is in direct conflict with action-heavy modern cinema. Dutch director Anton Corbijn (Control, The American) gives it the old college try, though. Philip Seymour Hoffman, in his last starring role, is a world-weary German counterterrorism agent tracking a Russian Muslim refugee through Hamburg. It's a smart, well-acted jigsaw puzzle, but a bit too slow-paced for its own good. 121 minutes R. (Opens Friday 7/25)
Century 14 Downtown Fri-Thu 11:05am, 1:55, 4:50, 7:45, 10:40

Video Games: The Movie

This feature-length documentary chronicles the meteoric rise of video games from the high-tech phenomenon of the late '70s to the multibillion-dollar industry of today. This eye-candy-filled love letter isn't exactly an in-depth history. But if you grew up on video games--whether it was Space Invaders or Halo--you'll appreciate the geeky enthusiasm. 100 minutes (Opens Saturday 7/26)
Guild Cinema Sat-Sun 12:00

Wish I Was Here

Zach Braff follows up his 2004 writing/directing/starring effort Garden State with this equally twee indie. In it he plays a 35-year-old unemployed actor who finds himself at a major crossroads when his father (Mandy Patinkin) announces he has cancer. Not everyone will appreciate the mix of humor and drama or the expectedly emo soundtrack. But it does feel like a slightly more grown-up version of Garden State, which had more than a few fans. 106 minutes R. (Opens Friday 7/25)
Century Rio Fri-Thu 10:30am, 1:35, 4:20, 7:15, 10:10
High Ridge Fri-Thu 12:35, 3:45, 7:05, 10:20
