Kurt Russell Rocks An Eyepatch, Tommy Wiseau IRL, Get Freaky With Danish Vampyrs

It’s that time of the week again, y’all. Here’s a list of a moving pictures we’re excited to see.


Escape From New York
This is early ’80s sci-fi action at its finest. It’s the year 1997 and New York City is a police state (sounds familiar), but rather than shipping criminals to Rikers Island, the island of Manhattan has been converted into a maximum security prison where violence reigns. The probably named Snake Plissken (played by a mostly shirtless Kurt Russell) is not only working to bring back eyepatches, but he’s also on a reconnaissance mission to save the President after Air Force One crashes in the middle of Manhattan. Friday September 26th and Saturday September 27th at 12:20 am, IFC Center; tickets, $14

Now Showing: Bicycle Film Fest, Al Fresco French Flicks and More

Now you’ve finally made it through OITNB, maybe you’re ready for some big-screen action?


Fed Up
If Super Size Me, Food, Inc., Hungry for Change and the collected works of Michael Pollan have yet to convince you of the evilness of Big Food, why not hit up Fed Up? The tagline is “Congress says pizza is a vegetable,” and it only gets better from there. Brought to you by Katie Couric, Stephanie Soechtig and Laurie David (the producer behind An Inconvenient Truth), this doc delves into America’s obesity epidemic and the creepy corporations behind it. Apparently guaranteed to “change the way you eat forever.” So if you treasure your customary diet, maybe skip it…
