''A Perfect Getaway,'' ''Final Destination: Death Trip,'' and ''H2'' are all out this month

A vacationing couple, played by Steve Zahn and Milla Jovovich, embark on what seems like A Perfect Getaway (8/14), until psychopaths show up…. You probably won’t want to go near a racetrack (or a swimming pool, or a hair salon…) after watching a group of ill-fated friends die freakish three-dimensional deaths in Final Destination: Death Trip (8/28)…. But if that film whets your appetite for destruction, make it a horror double feature with H2 (a.k.a. Halloween 2) (8/28). The slasher sequel may not have a lot of letters in its title, but it will probably pack plenty of gore as rocker-turned-director Rob Zombie picks up where 2007’s Halloween reboot left off…. Ocean’s Thirteen star Vincent Cassel won a César (the French equivalent of an Oscar) for playing one of France’s most notorious gangsters in Mesrine: A Film in Two Parts (8/28). Just think of him as Don Corleone with a dash of je ne sais quoi.
