More films, details, reviews and trailers below:
The Skin I Live In, Sony Pictures Classics, SPAIN | Director: Pedro Almodovar; Cast: Antonio Banderas, Elena Anaya, Blanca Suarez, Jan Cornet, Marisa Paredes | B criticWIRE | TOH! interviews Banderas | iW interviews Anaya | 79% Tomatometer | Glenn Kenny: "As visually and sonically gorgeous as anything Almodovar has ever done." | Karina Longworth: "[An] ever-unfurling, ultimately infuriating web of a film."
Texas Killing Fields, Anchor Bay, US | Director: Ami Canaan Mann; Cast: Chloe Moretz, Sam Worthington, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Jessica Chastain, Annabeth Gish, Stephen Graham | B criticWIRE | 67% Tomatometer | Neil Young: "Despite the presence of some notable names at the top of the cast including the currently ubiquitous Jessica Chastain, the steadily-paced drama looks more of a small-screen proposition."
Fireflies in the Garden, Senator Entertainment, US | Director: Dennis Lee; Cast: Julia Roberts, Ryan Reynolds, Willem Dafoe, Emily Watson, Carrie-Anne Moss | indieWIRE | 22% Tomatometer | Alissa Simon: "Despite the mega-wattage of pic's starry cast, theatrical prospects seem dim for this clumsy melodrama, which looks and sounds no better than an average made-for-cabler." | ThePlaylist: “Fireflies in the Garden is the cinematic equivalent of going out to dinner with your friend’s family and then having to watch them all fight like cats and dogs the whole time: it’s got to be worse for the people going through it, but you sure as hell have no interest in watching it."
Trespass, Millenium Entertainment, US | Director: Joel Schumacher; Cast: Nicolas Cage, Cam Gigandet, Nicole Kidman, Liana Liberato, Nico Tortorella | D criticWIRE | 26% Tomatometer | Nathan Rabin: "Trespass begins loopy and mounts in craziness until it's frothing-at-the-mouth insane."
The Thing, Universal, US/CAN | Director: Matthijs van Heijningen Jr.; Cast: Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Eric Christian Olsen, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Joel Edgerton, Ulrich Thomsen | 34% Tomatometer | Kathleen Murphy: "How can you dial up the bone-deep terror that comes from failure of faith in the humanity of your friends and colleagues if you never distinguish real from cardboard people?"
The Big Year, Fox 2000, US | Director: David Frankel; Cast: Jack Black, Steve Martin, Owen Wilson, Rashida Jones, Rosamund Pike | 45% Tomatometer | Christy Lemire: "The Big Year flaps its wings awfully hard but never truly takes flight."
The Woman, Bloody Disgusting, US | Director: Lucky McKee; Cast: Angela Bettis, Pollyanna McIntosh, Sean Bridgers, Marcia Bennett, Carlee Baker | B criticWIRE | iW interviews McIntosh | 77% Tomatometer | Peter Bradshaw: "It's a muddled, muffled, extremely unpleasant film that fails to illuminate the true story on which it is allegedly based."
