MacGruber

MacGruber (Will Forte) is an ex-Navy SEAL, ex-Army Ranger, former tight end for UTEP with 16 Purple Hearts and three Medals of Honor. He's the guy Col. Faith (Powers Boothe) calls on when archvillain Dieter Von Cunth (Val Kilmer) steals a Russian missile in that part of Siberia that looks mysteriously like the desert just outside Los Angeles. A blood-spattered, hit-or-miss character comedy of the Wayne's World/Austin Powers school, MacGruber manages to be nostalgic and profane in equal measures.

Killers stars Ashton Kutcher as a CIA superspy assassin who wants out, for the sake of his relationship with a Type A control-freakish ninny played by Katherine Heigl.

Solitary Man stars Michael Douglas as a former hotshot car dealer desperate to make a personal and professional comeback. It's Douglas' best role in years.
