Across the Hall
Brittany Murphy’s final film, wherein she plays a cheating wife holed up in a seedy hotel while her husband’s best friend, who’s staying across the hall (get it?), rats her out. Tense and creepy, but for the right reasons. AcrossTheHallMovie.com

Damages: Season 2
Glenn Close and her team of teeth-grinding lawyers are back, this season taking on an energy company engaged in unethical practices—but not going so far as to promise energy solutions. Co-starring Ted Danson not playing Ted Danson Sony.com

Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassin’s Ball
The unanticipated direct-to-DVD prequel to 2006’s Smokin’ Aces, with a couple of holdovers (Tremor Bros.!), a near-naked Autumn Reeser (The O.C.’s Taylor Townsend!) and a plot that almost makes sense (almost!). Hey, it looks cool. NBCUni.com

Weeds: Season 5
Nancy has drug lord Esteban’s baby, Andy hooks up with Nancy’s sister and later Alanis Morissette, Shane gets shot and Celia becomes a lesbian. Oh, and the pot: Doug and Silas open a medical marijuana dispensary. See? Still Weeds. Lionsgate.com

Whiteout
Not a movie about the popular office letter-correction liquid, but a serial-murder investigation in Antarctica led by Kate Beckinsale in a parka. Sadly, the former would have been a genius thrill-ride compared to the latter. WarnerBros.com
