The Brothers Grimm (Kliatba bratov Grimmovcov) - Fantasy by Terry Gilliam. Gilliam's latest tells a fictional story about the brothers responsible for some of our most enduring fairy tales. Will and Jake Grimm (Matt Damon and Heath Ledger, respectively) travel from town to town pretending to defeat monsters. When they reach a village neighboured by a legitimately haunted forest, these con men must actually learn their supposed trade. Monica Bellucci and Jonathan Pryce also star.

Cronenberg takes the psychological aspects of his more recent movies and peppers them with elements of the gross-out violence of his great earlier work. Viggo Mortenson and Maria Bello star as a couple whose perfect marriage is threatened after a violent robbery attempt leads to unexpected questions about the past.


Other movies playing


Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (Prekliatie králikodlaka) - Comedy by Nick Park and Steve Box. The animated duo's feature debut doesn't quite reach the greatness of their previous shorts, but it's a darn good time anyway.


The Amityville Horror(3:15 Zomrieš) - Horror by Andrew Douglas. The classic '70s horror movie about a family who moves into a haunted house gets remade by Hollywood uber-producer Michael Bay. Ryan Reynolds and Melissa George star as a young married couple who move into a house with their three children, only to find that something evil is astir.
