Opening Films 

by INLANDER STAFF & r & & r & SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES & r & & r & The bestselling book series crosses to the screen, with the fatherless Grace family moving in to the creepy Spiderwick mansion and finding lots of dark secrets that involve possible world domination. British actor Freddie Highmore (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) plays the twins Jared and Simon, and puts on a pretty darn good American accent. There's plenty of fantasy to go around, but also some frightening bits that might freak out viewers under 7, as well as a believable human element. (ES) Rated PG





DEFINITELY, MAYBE


Little Miss Sunshine's Abigail Breslin is an impossibly mature kid counseling her goofy, mixed-up father (Ryan Reynolds), who's loved and had his heart broken by three separate women (Isla Fischer, Rachel Weisz and Elizabeth Banks) -- one of whom is likely the kid's mom. Not to be confused with the 1976 Russian sci-fi novel (or the 1994 Oasis album that stole its name), this one comes from the people who brought you to big, stupid tears with Bridget Jones and About a Boy. (JS) Rated PG-13





JUMPER


Everything's cool for Hayden Christensen, he can teleport wherever he wants and junk. Stealing stuff. Whatever. The only real problem at first is that his ultra-hot girlfriend is like all up in his business like, "Why you being so secretive?" But then the trouble starts. There are more jumpers, you see, and they're locked in a battle they won't let our young anti-hero stay out of. (LB) Rated PG-13





STEP UP 2: THE STREETS


Are you ready to step up? Girl can dance. Guy can dance. Girl's from out of town, doesn't get along with other girls. Girl also doesn't get along with guy. Then the power of dance destroys all barriers. Choreography ensues. (LB) Rated PG-13





THE HUMAN BODY


This 2001 Discovery/BBC project documents the bodily functions of a typical family during a typical day, using heat-sensitive photography, MRIs, endoscopic equipment, the works. It's like Innerspace without Martin Short. You haven't experienced digestion until you've seen it on a seven-story-tall screen. (JS) At the IMAX, Not Rated

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
