1 ‘Iron Man 3’
Shane Black, once the highest paid screenwriter in Hollywood, reunites with his “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” star Robert Downey Jr. to fun up a franchise that got a little doughy in the second installment. And Guy Pearce is in there, too? Boom.

2 ‘Something in the Air’
French filmmaker Olivier Assayas (“Summer Hours,” “Carlos”) turns once again to his youth in the ‘70s for inspiration, with this memory piece about a young artist who flirts with political activism when Europe was teeming with radicals.

3 ‘The Iceman’
Michael Shannon, soon for General Zod in the Superman thing, plays Richard Kuklinski, who lived a kind of real-life “True Lies”: a family man whose wife and daughters had no idea he was a contract killer.

4 ‘Kiss of the Damned’
Like her siblings, Xan Cassavetes, son of John Cassavetes and Gena Rowlands, is a filmmaker. A cinephile (she made the doc “Z Channel: A Magnificent Obession”), she’ll bring her viewing history to this vampire twist.

5 ‘Post Tenebras Lux’
Mexican filmmaker Carlos Reygadas finally follows up his marvel “Silent Light” with this maddeningly fragmented whatzit, which involves hot red devils and orgies and rugby and men pulling off their own heads and other seemingly random sights.

6 ‘What Maisie Knew’
Scott McGhee and David Siegel (“The Deep End”) return with this drama about a little girl caught in a nasty custody battle between her divorcing ‘rents, based on the novel by Henry James. Julianne Moore, Steve Coogan and Alexander Skarsgard star.

7 ‘Love is All You Need’
Taking a title from the worst Beatles song, director Susanne Bier (“Brothers”) and her former Dogme co-conspirator Anders Thomas Jensen does a no doubt intense twist on the rom-com, about a woman with cancer who falls in love with a widower at a wedding. Pierce Brosnan is in there, too.

8 ‘Greetings from Tim Buckley’
Penn Badgley does his best Jeff Buckley in this portrait of the sensitive singer-songwriter as a young, pre-fame man, embodying him in the lead-up to the concert that would first make him a name. The talented (and brilliantly-named) Imogen Poots co-stars.

9 ‘Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf’s’
Is this a first? This documentary profiles not a person but a store, namely Bergdorf’s and its storied legacy. Why not? Among the interviewed are Tom Ford, Karl Lagenfeld, Candice Bergen, Nicole Richie and the Olsen Twins.

10 ‘Pain & Gain’
We wanted another Michael Bay film. And for our sins we got one.
