10 Reasons to go to the movies this weekend

Bruce Willis might be playing a retired CIA agent, but at least he’s “Red” — as in “retired, extremely dangerous.”

1 ‘Red’ Bruce Willis might be playing a retired CIA agent, but at least he’s “Red” — as in “retired, extremely dangerous.” When an assassin interrupts his now quiet life, he gets his team (Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren!) back together.

2 ‘Jackass 3D’
Johnny Knoxville et al. are back to trying to kill themselves, usually while in underwear and now in 3D.

3 ‘It’s Kind of a Funny Story’ Finally, someone formally committed Zach Galifianakis. Here, he plays a mentor of sorts to a clinically depressed teenager (Keir Gilchrist) who checks himself into an adult psych ward.

4 ‘Life as We Know It’ Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel had a bad first date, but they have to learn to get along. (See story on page 13!)

5 ‘Secretariat’ Based on the true story of the first U.S. Triple Crown champion racehorse, this film also stars humans Diane Lane and John Malkovich.

6 ‘My Soul to Take’ Wes Craven’s new flick tells the story of a serial killer who returns to his hometown to kill the seven children born on the date he supposedly died.

7 ‘The Social Network’ If you believe Aaron Sor-kin’s story, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) didn’t actually have that many social skills in the real world. Andrew Garfield co-stars as his founding partner and former friend, while Justin Timberlake steps in as Napster founder Sean Parker.

8 ‘Let Me In’ In this remake of a Swedish horror film, Chloe Moretz stars as a bloodthirsty tween vampire.

9 ‘Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps’ Michael Douglas is back as Gordon Gekko, and this time he’s out to show Shia LaBeouf a thing or two about the stock mar-ket and tacky business attire.

10 ‘You Again’
Kristen Bell, Jamie Lee Curtis, Sigourney Weaver, Kristin Chenoweth and, for good measure, Betty White star in this comedy about a woman trying to prevent her high school bully from marrying her brother. metro
