Liz & Dick
Lindsay Lohan and Grant Bowler portray/desecrate Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton in the greatest cinematic trainwreck since whatever Lohan’s last movie was. Start planning your weekend viewing parties/potentially fatal drinking games now! (E1)

Cloud Atlas
Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant, Susan Sarandon and more star in the century-spanning, multi-arced tale of parallel lives, revolution and buying makeup in bulk. If you can’t follow the story, at least it looks freakin’ cool. (Warner Bros.)

Dexter: Season 7
Sis Debra, possibly the least-observant cop in Miami PD history, has finally learned the truth about Dexter—will she help him in his vigilante serial-killer crusade, or become an annoying, whiney wreck? Spoiler alert: yes. (Paramount)

Beware of Mr. Baker
The SXSW award-winning doc about Cream/Blind Faith drummer Ginger Baker proves that Keith Moon wasn’t the craziest skinsman of the ’60s, and we now know who to thank/blame for the rock drum solo. Did I mention he’s insane? (Vivendi)

Zero Dark Dirty
An Elvis impersonator (Alexander Loy), an obnoxious comedian (Corey Feldman) and some actors are on a mission to bring ’Merican culture to Afghanistan, but end up taking on the Taliban. Also starring … The Iron Sheik! (Green Apple)
