On this weeks Film Roundup. The fight between Good and Evil resumes, only this time our enemies are in the form of Angels in Legion. Actor Jamie Fox looks surprisingly good in vendetta driven crime drama Law Abiding Citizen. The classic road trip movie returns in How I Got Lost. Funny man Don Ready shows us how to Live hard and Sell hard in The Goods. And we spend a semester at St.Trinianâs! Enjoy! 1. Legion Released: January 22,2010 Directed by: Scott Stewart Cast: Paul Bettany, Dennis Quaid, Lucas Black, Tyrese Gibson, Kate Walsh, Adrianne Palicki Genre: Sci-FI Trailer: Here In the supernatural action thriller Legion, an out-of-the-way diner becomes the unlikely battleground for the survival of the human race. When God loses faith in Mankind, he sends his legion of angels to bring on the Apocalypse. Humanityâs only hope lies in a group of strangers trapped in a desert diner and the Archangel Michael (Paul Bettany). 2. Law Abiding Citizen *The405 Pick of the Day* Released: October 16th, 2009 Directed by: F. Gary Gray Cast: Jamie Foxx, Gerard Butler Genre: Drama Trailer: Here Clyde Shelton (Gerard Butler) is an upstanding family man whose wife and daughter are brutally murdered during a home invasion. When the killers are caught, Nick Rice (Jamie Foxx), a hotshot young Philadelphia prosecutor, is assigned to the case. Over his objections, Nick is forced by his boss to offer one of the suspects a light sentence in exchange for testifying against his accomplice. Fast forward ten years. The man who got away with murder is found dead and Clyde Shelton coolly admits his guilt. Then he issues a warning to Nick: Either fix the flawed justice system that failed his family, or key players in the trial will die. Soon Shelton follows through on his threats, orchestrating from his jail cell a string of spectacularly diabolical assassinations that can be neither predicted nor prevented. Philadelphia is gripped with fear as Sheltonâs high-profile targets are slain one after another and the authorities are powerless to halt his reign of terror. Only Nick can stop the killing, and to do so he must outwit this brilliant sociopath in a harrowing contest of wills in which even the smallest misstep means death. With his own family now in Sheltonâs crosshairs, Nick finds himself in a desperate race against time facing a deadly adversary who seems always to be one step ahead. 3. How I Got Lost Released: July 26th, 2009 Directed by: Joe Leonard Cast:Aaron Stanford, Jacob Fishe, Rosemarie DeWitt, Nicole Vicius, Jill Flint, Lily Holleman, Gregory Konow Genre: Drama Trailer: Here How I Got Lost is the heartbreaking yet hopeful story of Andrew (Aaron Stanford) and Jake (Jacob Fishel), two friends dealing with loss amidst events bigger than them. Andrew is the friend we all have, the one who convinces you to come along despite your better judgment. Talented but with seemingly nothing to lose, his tailspin is balanced only by his professional drive to succeed as a trader on Wall Street. His best friend Jake (Jacob Fishel), broken-hearted and writing sports instead of fiction, does his best to clean up the mess his friend creates until he runs into his capricious ex, Sarah (Nicole Vicius) again. So Andrew convinces him to ditch New York and hit the road, going nowhere. They commandeer a cab to Philadelphia, where they borrow Andrewâs momâs station wagon. But when their car runs out of gas in the middle of Pennsylvania, Andrew reveals the real reason for the trip â his father has died, and he doesnât think he can make it through the funeral alone. On the road and in small town Ohio, Jake and Andrew discover that sometimes you have to get lost to figure out where youâre going. 4. The Goods: Liver Hard, Sell Hard Released: August 14th, 2009 Directed by: Neal Brennan Cast:Jeremy Piven, Ving Rhames, James Brolin, David Koechner, Kathryn Hahn, Jordana Spiro Genre: Comedy Trailer: Here Who is Don Ready? Salesman? Lover? Song Stylist? Semi-professional dolphin trainer? Ready is all of the above - except for a dolphin trainer. When heâs asked to help save an ailing local car dealership from bankruptcy, Ready and his ragtag crew descend on the town of Temecula like a pack of coyotes on a basket full of burgers. Selling, drinking, selling and going to strip clubs is their stock and trade. And they do it well. What Don doesnât expect is to fall in love and find his soul (cue heartfelt piano). 5. St.Trinian's Released: August 28th, 2009 Directed by: Oliver Parker, Barnaby Thompson Cast: Mischa Barton, Rupert Everett, Colin Firth, Lena Headey, Caterina Murino, Stephen Fry, Jodie Whittaker Genre: Comedy Trailer: Here St Trinianâs, the infamous school for âyoung ladiesâ is once again facing dire financial crisis!

Her unorthodox doctrine of free expression and self empowerment is also under threat from new Education Minister Geoffrey Thwaits, an old flame of Camillaâs who is determined to bring discipline and order to the anarchic school. In true St Trinian style the girls are in a league of their own; smart, fearless and determined to defend the school they love to the end. They need to unite the warring girl gang cliques and come up with the cash fast to save the school.
