Bob Byington’s "Somebody Up There Likes Me" is about a guy who doesn’t grow up. In fact, he doesn’t even age over the film’s span of about three decades in his life. It may have something to do with a mysterious briefcase, the origins of which are only ever suggested by animated cloud interludes and the ethereal implications of the title itself. But that hardly matters, so long as Max (Keith Poulson) keeps bumbling through marriage, money and mortality.

This weekend, "Dead Man Down" finds Colin Farrell out for vengeance on behalf of both his family and his scarred love interest Noomi Rapace. And he's hardly the first in recent months: from the "Gangster Squad" out to avenge a fallen comrade, to Hansel & Gretel hunting the witch that killed their parents, to Sylvester Stallone & Sung Kang hoping to put a "Bullet to the Head" of Jason Momoa, revenge has been a consistent motivator in many of the films of 2013, and that's set to continue as the year goes on, with payback proving crucial to "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," "Iron Man 3," "Star Trek Into Darkness," "The Lone Ranger," "The Wolverine," "Prisoners," "Carrie," "47 Ronin" and many more of the biggest films of the next 12 months.

Eddie Pepitone is a comedian of dualisms. At 52, he's the next big thing. He's a meditating vegan with rage issues. He enjoys swearing at LA drivers as much as he likes to feed squirrels in the park. This duality of character is what Steven Feinartz's documentary "The Bitter Buddha" (the title an oxymoron itself) attempts to convey about Pepitone, a man who is as delightful as he is loud, as incongruous as he is familiar, as buddha-like in nature and stature as he isn't.

A young girl in a summer dress bikes down an empty road, followed by a mysterious red four-door at the start of “The Silence.” It doesn’t take much detective work to know where this is going, the result being the horrific disappearance of young Sinnika. Eventually, her body is found dumped in the river, defiled but absent of evidence, though the movie has chosen us to see it’s in fact the work of wayward youth Peer, who gave in to his impulses as accomplice Timo sat and watched.

NBC is carefully stringing us along, hoping to hold our attention until “Hannibal” premieres, and has most recently dropped two new promos for the Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy and Laurence Fishburne-starring series. Brief as the new spots may be, they deliver on the promise of luxuriously clever gore that comes with the Dr. Lecter brand.

Man, for a property and movie of which there are currently "no plans," it seems folks just can't stop talking about the prospect and possibility of a "Hulk" film and what exactly it should be. While rumors have been flying about about a possible "Planet Hulk" and "World War Hulk" based movie, current Marvel godfather Joss Whedon has called them nonsense and as he reveals in a longer statement today, getting Bruce Banner right on the big screen is a challenge.
