St. Patrick's Day isn't until next week, but get the festivities off to an explosive start with Kill The Irishman! The film stars Ray Stevenson as Danny Greene, who awakens the wrath of the Walken. Cleveland rocks with explosions, bullets & mob assassins, but this Irishman's got a hell of a clover. All it does is bring out the feckin' fight! The Punisher director Jonathan Hensleigh lenses the crime actioner, which also stars Vinnie D'Onofrio & "Biggie Valls" Kilmer as Greene's unlikely allies.

It seems like just yesterday aliens assaulted the LA skyline. Today, they're back on the offensive & ready to Battle: Los Angeles! Modeled after gritty war films instead of invasion epics, Battle: Los Angeles features Aaron Eckhart, Michelle Rodriguez & singer Ne-Yo as Marines struggling to beat back the extraterrestrial boogeymen. The best part of a scaled-down, realistic approach? It isn't in 3D! The same cannot be said of this weekend's second space adventure, Mars Needs Moms. The final production from Robert Zemeckis' ImageMovers Digital, Mars takes a trip into the intergalactic Uncanny Valley, but kids need kino.
