“This is a gig!” screams a gang of masked assailants as they enter a busy Swedish bank. The customers are pushed and prodded, forced into a corner, hiding behind their ruffled suits as the perpetrators begin to activate the shredders, printing cash and destroying it in front of them, an activity that involves the ruffling of dollars, the tapping of keyboards, the clang of coins against glass, and yes, maybe some added percussive activities. It’s music, and it’s only one of many “attacks” from this ambitious group.

You might not have noticed, but Eddie Murphy has a new movie in theaters today. That's a slightly loaded sentence: "A Thousand Words" was shot four years ago, has been barely screened for critics (those who have seen it have been vicious), and is being put into a mere 1900 theaters, nearly half as much as the week's biggest opening, "John Carter." And all this for a man who was once the biggest star on the planet.

After a slight bit of turmoil earlier in the year when Matt Damon dropped out of the director's chair, and Warner Bros. bailed on backing the picture (Focus Features and Participant are now teaming to produce), everything is back on track for "The Promised Land." Gus Van Sant will direct and John Krasinski, who penned the script with Damon based off an idea by Dave Eggers, will also star. And now they've got another great addition.

You won't see Mathieu Almaric in his new film, "The Screen Illusion" -- which is part of the Rendez-vous with French Cinema Film Festival -- because this time, he's the director.

Did you go see "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island"? No? Well, guess what, it doesn't matter because a whole lot of people overseas went to go see it, helping the movie bring in over $270 million worldwide. Only a couple of days ago it was confirmed that a three-quel was in the works, and it looks like the producers want to keep their secret ingredients of Dwayne Johnson and Josh Hutcherson in the mix.

Good Luck With That: Joss Whedon Says The Only Way To Approach An 'Avengers' Sequel Is To Make It Smaller & More Intimate

Well, "The Avengers" is still a little bit away from hitting theaters, but might as well get the sequel talk started already, right? Because since everyone in the Marvel universe has signed their lives and their children's lives away to star in the series forever, if the movie is a big box office hit (and it should be) and pleases the fans (it likely will) you can bet everyone will be getting out their dayplanners to figure out when they can get Robert Downey Jr., Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and Tom Hiddleston all back together in the same room. But if Joss Whedon has his way (and he won't), his concept for a sequel to "The Avengers" runs directly opposite the current climate in Hollywood.

TGIF betches! I set off for the magical land of queso and breakfast tacos tonight-- yep! Going to Austin for SXSW. But not without a little Friday In Theaters to set you off right. It just wouldn't be right to depart without a mild rant about the "John Carter" marketing campaign! Yes, this weekend the questionable Civil War/Sci-Fi "John Carter" muscles its way into theaters, as well as Elizabeth Olsen spooky movie "Silent House," and funny attractive people with problems rom-com "Friends with Kids."
