KICK-ASS (don't hate us, BTR censors, it's the name of the film) is a new film based on the controversial Mark Millar comic. In it, a bunch of ordinary young people (and Nicholas Cage) decide to become superheroes with surprising results.

THE RUNAWAYS was Scott's #2 Most Awaited Film of 2010. This music biopic is based on Cherie Currie's memoirs chronicling her time in the teenage all-girl rock band of the 1970s. Dakota Fanning plays Curie, while Kristin Stewart plays Joan Jett.

CLASH OF THE TITANS is the remake of the 1981 Greek mythology epic. The demigod Perseus goes on a quest to slay the Medusa and thus save a city from the deadly Kraken. Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes are among the stars of this "kinda sorta" 3-D epic.

RED RIDING TRILOGY is actually three films. Each film takes place in a different year (1974, 1980 and 1983) and follows the efforts of outmatched protagonists trying to uncover the secrets of a murderously corrupt northern England town.

THE GREATEST stars one of our new favorite actresses Carey Mulligan as a young woman pregnant with her dead boyfriend's child. She reached out to his family for support, bringing the film to emotional boiling point.

DEFENDOR made it to a handful of theatres before premiering on DVD this week. Woody Harrelson plays a delusional man, convinced he's a superhero destined to bring down a super villain named Captain of Industry.

All this plus film news and our DVD Picks of the Week! Hope to see you there, Film Geeks!
