It’s the top of the world as Nanu, a polar bear cub, and Seela, a walrus pup, struggle for survival when climate change impacts their home ice in a National Geographic nature documentary narrated by Queen Latifah. At Village Square. (96 minutes) G; all ages.
A jaded reporter (Steve Buscemi) and a self-centered actress (Sienna Miller) engage in a theatrical game of cat-and-mouse written and directed by Buscemi — and inspired by murdered Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh’s 2003 psychological thriller. At the Suncoast. (83 minutes) R; profanity, drug use.
The aliens-on-the-loose classic “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” inspires yet another remake, this one with Nicole Kidman as a Washington psychiatrist who discovers an extraterrestrial epidemic triggered by a space shuttle crash. “Casino Royale’s” Daniel Craig, “Gosford Park’s” Jeremy Northam and Craig’s “Casino Royale” co-star, Jeffrey Wright, round out the starring cast. At multiple locations. (109 minutes) PG-13; violence, disturbing images, terror.
THE LAST LEGION
When Goths invade fifth-century Rome, the overthrown young emperor, Romulus Augustus Caesar (“Nanny McPhee’s” Thomas Sangster) discovers Julius Caesar’s legendary sword Excaliburnus — and leads a daring expedition to Brittania, where the Ninth Legion represents their best hope for a last stand. Colin Firth (who played Sangster’s father in “Nanny McPhee”), Ben Kingsley, Peter Mullan and Aishwarya Rai co-star; Doug Lefler (a veteran of TV’s “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” and “Xena: Warrior Princess”) directs. At multiple locations. (110 minutes) PG-13; intense action violence.
