''GANGSTER SQUAD: (R) In 1950's Los Angeles, the city is run by Brooklyn-born mobster Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn), Cohen is as crooked as a hillbilly's teeth; paying off politicians and police to run his gambling and prostitution ring uninterrupted. The town seems lost to authority until a small group of LAPD officers ban together to take the city back. Leaving behind their badges and rules, these police officers form a kill squad bent on taking Cohen down. Staring Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, Nick Nolte and Emma Stone, this action film hopes to distract from the lackluster script with a power cast, lots of explosions and ample gun play.
A HAUNTED HOUSE: (R) Marlon Wayans feels familiar in this horror-movie spoof film (in the same vein as the Scary Movie franchise) where he plays Malcolm who has just moved into a dream house with his girlfriend Kisha. Something seems to be wrong with the house, but Malcolm isn't ready to give up on it yet. Soon after, Kisha becomes possessed by a ghost, and Malcolm is willing to do anything from hiring the ghost busters to psychics to priests to save Kisha. The spoof film combines aspects of the Paranormal Activity franchise, along with a mix of The Devil Inside'' and other "found-footage" horror films; cheap laughs and potty humor at its finest.
ZERO DARK THIRTY: (R) The highly-anticipated follow up to The Hurt Locker'' from director-producer Kathryn Bigelow and writer-producer Mark Boal, creates a gripping recount of the dramatic hunt for Osama bin Laden.

Watch the drama unfold as a team of Navy SEALS attempt to kill bin Laden, the most wanted man in the world.
