1 ‘Due Date’ Robert Downey Jr. is an expectant father desperate to make it across the country in time for the birth of his child. Zach Galifianakis is his unlikely road trip buddy. And the French bulldog in a surgery cone is, well, one more reason to stick around for the ride.

2 ‘Megamind’ The evil Megamind (voiced by Will Ferrell) finally conquers his superhero nemesis, Metro Man (Brad Pitt), and then finds life to be a bit of an anticlimactic letdown. Yes, the crush of nihilism is tough — but, um, did you hear Brad Pitt was Metro’s new mascot?! It’s been real, green globe.

3 ‘Fair Game’ Based on Valerie Plame’s memoir, Naomi Watts stars as a CIA agent who was outed by the White House, allegedly because of a New York Times piece her husband (played by Sean Penn) wrote criticizing the Bush administration’s invasion of Iraq.

4 ‘Saw 3D’ This seventh and final installment of these smart horror movies keeps the Halloween spirit going a bit longer.

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

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

10 ‘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. metro
