ZERO DARK THIRTY” (R) Director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal (“The Hurt Locker”) unite for this tense procedural focusing on a CIA agent (Jessica Chastain) who participated in the post-9/11 hunt for Osama bin Laden for nearly a decade. Already controversial for claiming the CIA’s use of water boarding torture led to useful information (something the agency denies), the movie is also destined to be an Oscar magnet, especially for Chastain, who is the one to beat for Best Actress.

THE IMPOSSIBLE” (PG-13) Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor star as a married couple vacationing with their three sons in Thailand when the 2004 tsunami hit. Based on an incredible true story.
