This week brings us a trio of new films opening in theaters across the country. On Wednesday, Morning Glory opened, billing itself as the feel-good movie of the year about a plucky young go-getter behind the scenes of a morning show. Today, we’ve also got Unstoppable, the high-octane action thriller more powerful than a locomotive, and Skyline, an epic-scale alien invasion saga. Also, the Valerie Plame story Fair Game is expanding just in time for George W. Bush’s book tour.

In selected cities, you can also check out the brand new environmental documentary Cool It. Take a closer look at these options below.
