THE FOOT FIST WAY
A clueless, egomaniacal martial arts master (Danny McBride) who teaches at a North Carolina strip-mall dojo discovers that his bombshell wife (Mary Jane Bostic) has betrayed him, prompting his in-vain efforts to keep it together in this suburban satire, a hit at 2006’s Sundance film festival. At Village Square. (85 minutes.) R; violence, sexual situations, drug use, profanity, adult themes.
HELLBOY II: THE GOLDEN ARMY
When the mythical world rebels against humanity, hoping to take over Earth, cigar-chomping Hellboy (Ron Perlman) and his team — including pyrokinetic girlfriend Liz (Selma Blair), aquatic empath Abe (Doug Jones) and protoplasmic mystic Johann — lead the charge to save the planet. “Pan’s Labyrinth” writer-director Guillermo del Toro returns to direct this sequel to his 2004 comic-book adaptation. At multiple locations. (110 minutes.) PG-13; sci-fi action and violence, profanity.
Newly arrived New Yorker Dave Ming Chang (Eddie Murphy) seems suspiciously uncomfortable in his own skin — possibly because he’s not really a he at all, but a spaceship built in the image of its miniature-sized captain. Elizabeth Banks, Gabrielle Union and Scott Caan co-star for Murphy’s “Norbit” director, Brian Robbins. At multiple locations. (90 minutes.) PG; bawdy and suggestive humor and action, profanity.
