These ain't sparklers! BATTLESHIP plays Thursday at the Cinefamily as Doug Benson's latest Movie Interruption. Publicity photo courtesy Universal.

Who says the fireworks have to stop tonight? Doug Benson sets off one of 2012's biggest bombs tomorrow at the Cinefamily for his latest Movie Interruption. The first in a slate of board game adaptations that reportedly includes Candy Land, Monopoly & Ouija, Hasbro's Battleship (2012) sailed over budget & sank like a stone, the perfect target for a volley of jokes from the good ship Benson. For more fun pitting Americans against aliens, New Beverly Midnights celebrates another 4th this Saturday - Rocky IV (1985). Dolph Lundgren's iconic villain Drago "must break" Rocky for the Soviet Union, but our Sly boxer wields the power of red, white, blue...AND VENGEANCE!

Trim the testosterone & triple the terror with the Viscera Film Festival's Bloody Carpet Kick-Off at the Egyptian. The fest honors female genre filmmakers past & present - embodied in its main events, an opening preview of Danielle Harris' (the Halloween & Hatchet franchises) directorial debut Among Friends and closing presentation of their first Inspiration Award to Mary Lambert (Pet Sematary). Between those two, the all-night event features 13 shorts (many of which are local or world premieres) screening in competition alongside coming attractions (among the trailers is Lambert's own Dark Path Chronicles). All that & an after-party at the Roosevelt Hotel will set you back a scant $11.

Full list appears below. See you at the movies!
