Here’s what’s opening in selected cities this weekend, and as David Letterman always says, we just pray to God your city has been selected. We’ve got the much-anticipated George Clooney dramedy Up In The Air, Cheryl Hines’ directorial debut starring Meg Ryan, Timothy Hutton, Kristen Bell and Justin Long called Serious Moonlight, from a script by Adrienne Shelly, the creative force behind the 2007 indie favorite Waitress. Then there’s the Dave Foley comedy The Strip, about strip-mall employees in a floundering electronics store.

In Juno director Jason Reitman’s new dramedy, George Clooney stars as a hatchet man who travels so often that his entire life revolves around his approach to his ten millionth frequent flyer mile. But after a fling with a fellow traveler (Vera Farmiga) impressed by his elite status, he’s forced to face his solitary existence and figure out what he really wants.
