Remember how Sofia Coppola's divisive Somewhere opened here last weekend without hardly a TV spot (or press screening)? I'm gonna try to help fix that – besides, y'know, reviewing the films, which you should still totally look for every week in print Wednesdays and online Thursdays – by posting confirmed bookings here as I get them. Cool?

OK, so here's what's coming this Friday, Jan. 28, that I know of thus far. If we're reviewing it later in the week, I've indicated it with a *.

*Another Year – Mike Leigh's critically acclaimed story of an elderly couple (Jim Broadbent and Ruth Sheen).

*Biutiful - Alejandro González Iñárritu directs a down-on-his-luck Javier Bardem.

*Blue Valentine - My 4th favorite film of 2010 comes to the Enzian. Starring Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling.

*Casino Jack - Kevin Spacey stars as disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff.

*The Company Men - The financial collapse from a "working-man's" POV; starring Ben Affleck and Tommy Lee Jones.

The Mechanic - Remake of the 1972 Charles Bronson vehicle, starring Jason Statham and Ben Foster.

The Rite - Another Vatican-themed demonic "true story," this one starring Anthony Hopkins.
