Opening Wide: Get Him to the Greek, Killers, Splice, Marmaduke

Here’s what’s playing at your local theater this weekend – four new films open up nationwide. First, there’s the wacky comedy testosteroney Get Him to the Greek, as well the slightly more estrogeny action rom-com Killers. There’s also Splice, a really dark twisted sci-fi tale that you definitely don’t want to take your kids to. Send the kids to go see Marmaduke. It’s about a big dog what gets into trouble. In selected cities (and as David Letterman always says, we just pray to God your city has been selected), there’s Colin Farrell and his Irish folktale film Ondine, which you can also watch right now on Comcast On Demand from the comfort of your own home. Take a closer look at your options below.

In this Forgetting Sarah Marshall spin-off, Jonah Hill stars as Aaron Green, who is ordered by his crazy music mogul boss (Sean Combs) to escort bombastic drug-addict rock star Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) from England to Los Angeles’ famed Greek Theater for a comeback concert, and the trip leads them to all sorts of insane situations.

Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley are renegade geneticists who develop a brand new human-animal hybrid life form, but since they’re not legally allowed to be doing that, they have to hide the new creature they’ve named Dren from the world and raise her as their own… and that’s when things start to get really, really creepy.
