No Good Deed
Opens Sep 12, 2014

Pouring rain. A knock at the door. A stranger asks to use the phone: Car trouble, he explains. What could go wrong? In traditional thriller fashion, everything. Or so Terri (Taraji P. Henson), a wife and mother of two, discovers when she offers aid to an escaped convict (Idris Elba) who enters her home and soon terrorizes her family. Playing the villain is a welcome change for Elba, who was last seen starring in the 2013 biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. ''It's nice to have a contrast in your career,'' he says. ''I've got a very loyal following, and I just like to keep them guessing as to what I'm going to do next.''
The Skeleton Twins
Opens Sep 12, 2014

In this dark dramedy, Saturday Night Live alums (and real-life friends) Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader play estranged siblings Maggie and Milo, who are brought back together when he's hospitalized after attempting suicide. Hader says that his familiarity with Wiig helped during the film's heavier moments. ''We've both really been there for each other,'' says the actor. ''So I felt very comfortable being vulnerable around her.'' But the film has its share of humor, including an epic lip-synch to the Starship anthem ''Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now.'' ''Kristen and I could have shot it for two weeks,'' he says. ''We were laughing so hard and we never got tired.'' No doubt. Who doesn't love the theme from Mannequin?
The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them
Opens Sep 12, 2014

There are two sides to every relationship. The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby tries to tell one event—the dissolution of a marriage—from the perspective of both enigmatic Eleanor (Jessica Chastain) and her restaurateur hubby, Conor (James McAvoy). It was originally shot as two films subtitled Him and Her, but audiences will first see a combined edit dubbed Them. (The 201-minute Him/Her is out Oct. 10.) ''It was like I played two different characters,'' says Chastain, who also produced. ''In Conor's film I play his perception of Eleanor, and in my film I play Eleanor.'' While the two-hour Them stands on its own, she says, ''if you want to go deeper, you have that chance.''
