OPENING

Green Zone—In the opening moments of the Green Zone trailer, we think Bourne is back; alas, no. But Matt Damon and Bourne Ultimatum director Paul Greengrass promise to take audiences on a similar thrill ride. Weapons of mass destruction are out there and Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller (Damon) and his team are sent to track them down. However, at each site they visit, they come up empty handed. Could the government be using this ploy to cover up something even more terrifying? (R) Edwards 9, Edwards 22

Remember Me—Robert Pattinson portrays Tyler, a rebel New Yorker who struggles to maintain a tense relationship with his successful father (Pierce Brosnan). After he is arrested by a surly police officer (Chris Cooper), he plots revenge by dating his daughter, Ally (Emilie de Ravin). However, Cupid intervenes and her love begins to heal his ravaged soul. Allen Coulter (The Sopranos, Hollywood Land) directs this story about reconnecting with family and with one’s own self. (PG-13) Edwards 9, Edwards 22

She’s Out of My League—Sometimes the good guys win. Such is the case for Kirk (Jay Baruchel), a geeky airport security agent. When Molly (Alice Eve), a beautiful and successful woman, falls in love with him, neither Kirk nor his bewildered friends can believe his luck. Can he make this odd pairing work? The first full length feature from British director Jim Field Smith looks at the unlikeliness of love. (R) Edwards 9
