Boardwalk Empire: Season 1
Politician/bootlegger “Nucky” Thompson (Steve Buscemi) cashes in on Prohibition in 1920s Atlantic City in the epic HBO series that should serve as a cautionary tale against involving government with liquor. But, of course, won’t. (HBO)

Killer Elite
As he always is, a former special-ops agent (Jason Statham) is blackmailed out of retirement when his old partner (Robert DeNiro) is kidnapped by terrorists, and he has to battle Clive Owen and his mustache for his freedom. (Universal)

Baseball manager Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) uses mathematics, analytics and an Ivy Leaguer (Jonah Hill) to outsmart bigger-budgeted teams and take the Oakland A’s straight to the top, er, middle. Based on a true, less-handsome story. (Sony)
