Under the Skin
  • Under the Skin

Under the Skin
An alien in human skin (Scarlett Johansson) seduces and kills a succession of lonely men in director Jonathan Glazer’s (Sexy Beast) meditation on humanity and the utter futility of resisting Scarlett Johansson, even in a bowl wig. (Lionsgate)

Orphan Black: Season 2
In the spectacular second season, Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) fights to protect her daughter from pro-clone Rachel (also Maslany), endangering the other clones (all Maslany). And yet more clones are introduced—guess who plays ’em? (Warner Bros.)

Rio 2
Blu (Jesse Eisenberg), Jewel (Anne Hathaway) and the kiddies hit the Amazon and run across new wacky characters (voiced by Rita Moreno, Bruno Mars and Kristin Chenoweth). Child critics rave, “Loud colorful blobs and doody jokes!” (Fox)

Labyrinth
Two women, one in Medieval times (Jessica Brown Findlay) and one in the present day (Vanessa Kirby), search for the Holy Grail in the Canadian/CW miniseries event—and there’s neither a Muppet nor a David Bowie in sight. (Lionsgate)

Sx_Tape
From the producers of Paranormal Activity comes something different—ha! It’s more “found footage” horror cheese, this time about a dude filming sexy times with his annoying girlfriend in a—wait for it—insane asylum. Yes, really. (Well Go USA)
