Addicted

Lionsgate's new "Code Black" label distributes its first film, an upscale erotic thriller based on the best-selling dirty novel by Zane (who also writes "Zane's Sex Chronicles" on Showtime). Sharon Leal ("Guiding Light," "Hellcats") plays a successful businesswoman with a loving husband, two beautiful kids and a successful career. She's also got an addiction to naughty, naughty sex and finds gratification with a sexy, sexy painter (model Tyson Beckford). This might tide horny female viewers over until 50 Shades of Grey in February. 105 minutes R.

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

The popular chidren's book gets turned into a madcap comedy in which an unlucky boy transfers his bad juju to his hapless family for a single day. Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner are on mom and dad duty. There isn't a lot of depth to be found here--mostly just a string of chaotic set-pieces--but director Miguel Arteta (Chuck & Buck, The Good Girl) adds just enough honest-to-goodness social awkwardness to give it a bit of gravity. 81 minutes PG.

Annabelle

Pity the poor, flesh-and-blood stars of The Conjuring. Turns out the inanimate doll got her own spin-off before they did. Seems another nice couple are experiencing deadly supernatural occurrences after they bring a creepy antique doll into their house. Do I sense a team-up with Chucky in the near future? R.

The Best of Me

This could be the Nicholas Sparksiest adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novel to date. In this schmaltz-heavy romance, we've got a blandly photogenic couple (James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan) who tragically break up and then reunite after many years. Boat docks at sunset? Check. Quaint old country barns? Check. Kissing in the rain? Check. It's Nicholas Sparks all right. 117 minutes PG-13.

The Book of Life

Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy) produces this candy-coated, fiesta-colored cartoon. In it, two small-town pals (Diego Luna and Channing Tatum) battle for the heart of their childhood sweetheart (Zoe Saldana)--spurned on by a pair of cosmic entities, the angelic La Muerte and the demonic Xibalba. The film's complicated mythology borrows a lot from Mexico's Dia de los Muertos tradition. The result--a sort of reverse Orpheus and Eurydice--is probably too dark for the youngest kids. But this original, unpredictable toon is a vivid seasonal treat for the rest of us. FULL REVIEW: Mexican-themed cartoon offers unexpected seasonal treats by Devin D. O’Leary (10/16/2014). 95 minutes PG.

The Boxtrolls

From the makers of Coraline and ParaNorman comes this stop-motion-animated toon about a young orphan raised underground by cave-dwelling, trash-collecting trolls. The look is imaginative, but the story is so-so. Based on the children's novel Here Be Monsters! by Alan Snow. Ben Kingsley, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade and Tracy Morgan provide voices. 97 minutes PG.

Dracula Untold

Universal has decided to reboot all of its classic "Universal Monsters" films, starting with their chief bloodsucker. Unfortunately somebody at the studio thought he needed one of those "boring superhero origin story" movies. Here we find out how good-guy Vlad Tepes (Luke Evans from Fast & Furious 6) became a vampire to fight off invading Turks. This one's perfect for people who felt Bram Stoker's classic tale needed to look a lot more like 300. 92 minutes PG-13.

The Equalizer

The popular, but mostly forgotten 1980s TV series starring Edward Woodward as an elderly, ass-kicking former intelligence agent gets a reboot courtesy of actor Denzel Washington and director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Olympus Has Fallen). Washington is a tough guy with a mysterious past who volunteers to protect a young girl (Chloë Grace Moretz, Kick-Ass) from ultra-violent Russian mobsters. 131 minutes R.

Fury

Who doesn't love a good tank movie? We haven't had a good tank movie in a long time. Tanks are cool. Brad Pitt stars as a veteran Sherman tank commander leading a five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines toward the end of World War II. Outnumbered, outgunned and limping along in a broken war machine, our heroes face overwhelming odds. Gritty, bloody and brutally paced, this down-in-the-trenches look at life during wartime mixes exaggerated movie violence and "ugly truth" history in almost equal measure. 134 minutes R.

Gone Girl

David Fincher (Fight Club, Se7en) directs this gripping adaptation of Gillian Flynn's twisty crime novel about a man who comes under intense media scrutiny after his wife disappears. Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Tyler Perry and Neil Patrick Harris star. 148 minutes R.

The Hundred-Foot Journey

After the untimely death of their matriarch, a brokenhearted Indian clan wanders Europe looking for a place to open up a family restaurant. They end up in an impossibly picturesque French town where Papa (Om Puri) decides to hang up his shingle across the street from a Michelin Star restaurant. Gifted young chef Hassan (Manish Dayal) falls in love with the rival sous chef (Charlotte Le Bon), while Papa starts up a love/hate relationship with the fancy French restaurant's uptight owner (Helen Mirren). This is exactly (exactly!) the sort of semi-exotic foodie romance you would expect from the director of Chocolat. 122 minutes PG.

The Judge

Robert Downey Jr. is a big-city lawyer recalled to his childhood home to defend his estranged father (Robert Duvall), a local judge, on charges of murder. Downey and Duvall chew scenery at an impressive rate, but the low-grade John Grisham-wannabe script is short on logic, heavy on melodrama. 114 minutes R.

Left Behind

It's come to this, has it, Nicolas Cage? Starring in a reboot of the 2000 Kirk Cameron born-again Christian shocker of the same name? Yeesh. Cage plays an airline pilot who gets left on Earth after The Rapture. Even renowned Jesus-lover Kirk Cameron only managed to make three of these things before flaming out. With Cage's star power, will we finally get cinematic versions of all 16 of Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins' Left Behind books? Probably not. A criminally restrained Cage spends the entire film trying to land a plane, while everybody else takes 90 minutes to figure out The Rapture has happened. 110 minutes PG-13.

A Matter of Faith

This week's overly earnest, preaching-to-the-converted, faith-based melodrama is A Matter of Faith. Jordan Trovillion (who appeared as "Goodwill Cashier" in Jack Reacher) stars as a good Christian girl who goes off to college (mistake number one) and suddenly finds herself "influenced" by an evil/secular biology professor (Harry Anderson from "Night Court," of all people). When her loving Christian father discovers that his precious daughter is considering believing in evolution, he pledges to do something about it! 89 minutes PG.

The Maze Runner

More post-apocalyptic YA teen lit hits the big screen. In this adaptation of James Dashner's hit book trilogy, a mind-erased teen (Dylan O'Brien, "Teen Wolf") is dropped into a community of "runners" trapped inside a deadly, monster-filled, impossible-to-escape maze. Why? Just wait two more movies and you'll find out. 120 minutes PG-13.

A middle-aged American loser (Kevin Kline) inherits an apartment in Paris, but it comes with a hitch--an elderly tenant, played by Maggie Smith. Our penniless protagonist camps out in a spare room while figuring out what to do with the property and finds himself regularly abused by his tenant's mean daughter (Kristin Scott Thomas). An tartly enjoyable if stagebound directing debut (at age 75) from veteran playwright Israel Horovitz (dad to Beastie Boy Adam Horovitz). 107 minutes PG-13.

Pizza Girl Massacre

This locally shot horror-comedy finds a troupe of actors rehearsing for their latest play at an isolated cabin out in the woods. Trouble soon shows up in the form of a vengeful, knife-wielding pizza delivery girl (Amy Bourque). Don't worry, she'll give you a slice. Cast and crew will be in attendance for a post-film Q&A. 79 minutes

Pride

Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton and Dominic West are among the very British cast of this feel-good historical comedy-drama. In the summer of 1984, the National Union of Mineworkers went on strike. In solidarity UK gay activists offered to help out. Needless to say the rough mineworkers of South Wales didn't know what to think of the rainbow-colored contingent. A happy-go-lucky group of gay and lesbian sympathizers were, at first, greeted with something close to hostility. In time, of course, the two oppressed parties learned to appreciate one another. This one borrows a lot of tone from films like Billy Elliot and Kinky Boots, but that's not a bad thing. 117 minutes R.
