Today's New In Theaters: 6/5/09

The Hangover: I officially predict huge box office for the latest from Todd Phillips (Old School, Road Trip); Movieline thinks Land of the Lost will beat it out, but I'll bet Hangover pulls through. I'm seeing it Saturday and can't wait; nothing would make me happier than to see Zach Galifianakis become the next Belushi, as Ebert predicts in his glowing review.

Land of the Lost: There's plenty of talent on-board, but this summer "family" movie feels thrown together out of spare parts and duct tape.

Away We Go: Looking forward to Sam Mendes' quick (and seemingly polar opposite) follow-up to Revolutionary Road; Dave Eggars' name on the screenplay--and a cast of solid character actors--is a further push. AV Club gives it a solid B+.

My Life in Ruins: Oh, goody, it's a big comeback for Nia Whatever-her-name-is-- the woman who made that Greek wedding movie that I never saw. The trailers for this one, though, make me want to stab myself in the eye. Orndorf has a good pan up at DVD Talk.

Pressure Cooker: It reportedly hits L.A. this weekend, and seriously, don't fucking miss it.
