HELL AND BACK

This potty-mouthed an­i­mated film by some of the cre­ators of Ro­bot Chicken fea­tures the voices of Nick Sward­son and T.J. Miller as two meat­heads who travel to hell, where they come across the Devil (Bob Odenkirk), Or­pheus (Danny McBride), and oth­ers. You won’t find many stop-mo­tion-an­i­mated films more vul­gar than this one. Rated R. 86 min­utes.

THE MAR­TIAN

The re­cent in­for­ma­tion that there is liq­uid wa­ter on Mars is for­tu­itous for di­rec­tor Ri­d­ley Scott. In the di­rec­tor’s latest film, Matt Damon plays an as­tro­naut who trav­els to the Red Planet, and is then pre­sumed dead and left be­hind by his crew. He uses all of his re­sources to sur­vive and re­turn home. The screen­play is adapted from Andy Weir’s pop­u­lar novel. Kris­ten Wiig, Jeff Daniels, and Jes­sica Chas­tain co-star. Rated PG-13. 141 min­utes. Screens in 3-D and 2-D at Re­gal Sta­dium 14; Vi­o­let Crown; DreamCatcher. (Not re­viewed)

THE NEW GIRL­FRIEND

In di­rec­tor François Ozon’s re­la­tion­ship drama, Claire (Anaïs De­moustier) be­friends David (Ro­main Duris) af­ter the death of his wife, who was Claire’s best friend. Claire is com­mit­ted to help­ing David raise his in­fant child, but she dis­cov­ers one day, on a visit to his home, that David is a trans­ves­tite with a habit of wear­ing his late wife’s clothes. Claire takes an in­ter­est in David’s cross-dress­ing, and to­gether they fash­ion a new per­sona for him, call­ing him Vir­ginia. Ozon deftly weaves Hitch­cock­ian sus­pense with hi­jinks. The New Girl­friend is a thought­ful ex­plo­ration of gen­der roles and iden­tity, but it falls into cliché in its third act, spilling over into un­nec­es­sary melo­drama. Rated R. 108 min­utes. In French with sub­ti­tles. The Screen. (Michael Abatemarco)
