“ARTHUR NEWMAN” (Unrated): Colin Firth stars as a desperate man who fakes his own death in order to reboot his life. Then he meets a woman (Emily Blunt) who happens to be doing the same thing.

“THE BIG WEDDING” (R):: Robert DeNiro and Diane Keaton play a divorced couple who must pretend they are still married for the sake of their adopted son's marriage. Susan Sarandon, Topher Grace, Katherine Heigl, Robin Williams and Amanday Seyfried round out the starry cast.

“MUD” (R): Director Jeff Nichols' follow-up to “Take Shelter” centers on a fugitive (Matthew McConaughey) hiding out in Arkansas who relies on the help of two boys to reunite with his girlfriend (Reese Witherspoon).

“PAIN AND GAIN” (R): Michael Bay (“Transformers”) takes a break from movies about giant robots to direct this pitch-black comedy, based on a true story, about three Miami bodybuilders (Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie) who attempt to a kidnap a wealthy businessman. Then things start going way, way wrong.
