THE INCREDIBLE BURT WONDERSTONE—Steve Carell, Jim Carrey, and Steve Buscemi don bleached wigs, spray-on tans, and glittery jumpsuits for this humorous romp about rival Vegas magicians. The late James Gandolfini has a memorable part as a casino owner who can make and/or break careers.  BLU

 

THE CALL—Halle Berry plays a 911 operator who receives a call from a teenager (Abigail Breslin) trapped in a serial killer’s trunk. An incredibly tense stand-off between Berry and the killer ensues. BLU

SHOAH—The Criterion Collection brings back into print a defining work of cinema.
