The Martian

Opening in Orlando: Finders Keepers, Legend, Sicario, The Martian and The Walk 

Finders Keepers Here's one you won't see on Storage Wars: A severed human foot is found in a storage unit, and its owner battles to get it back from the guy who won it in an auction. With music by Gang Green? As if you didn't hope. (R)

Legend English gangsters the Kray twins have already inspired a number of artistic tributes, from the 1990 UK feature film The Krays to the Monty Python sketch "The Piranha Brothers." (They're also the subject of the song "Profession of Violence" by hard-rock quintet UFO, if anybody's really counting.) But now, the ruthless Ronnie and Reggie receive their highest honor yet: being portrayed by Tom Hardy in a tour de force dual performance. What hath Armie Hammer wrought, right? (R)

The Martian In Ridley Scott's latest outer-space suspenser, astronaut Matt Damon is stranded on Mars. Will NASA be able to rescue him, or will he have to spend the rest of his days hunting for indigenous life forms to lecture about the limits of diversity? (PG-13)

Sicario Ripped from either today's headlines or the darkest corners of Donald Trump's imagination (like there's a difference!), this crime drama casts Emily Blunt as an FBI agent sent to the U.S.-Mexico border to hunt for a vicious drug kingpin. Take a selfie with El Chapo and you'll earn pride of place on the movie's official Facebook page! (R)

The Walk See, here's the danger in turning real-life daredevil stories into narrative dramas. Seven years after the documentary Man on Wire made jaws drop, Hollywood has latched onto the story of Philippe Petit, the only man to ever perform a tightrope walk between the towers of the World Trade Center. And who do they have playing Petit? Joseph Gordon Levitt. Now correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't it just five years ago that I saw that fucker swimming sideways through a flooded hotel that was twisting slowly onto its side? Talk about lowering your game. (The parental advisory includes a warning about scenes of "smoking." Like that's the behavior you really want your kids to avoid emulating here.) (PG)
