GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY (PG13) 
 
-Baxter Avenue Theatres             
The action-packed, epic space adventure Guardians of the Galaxy 3D expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan (Lee Pace), a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—gun-toting raccoon Rocket (voice of Bradley Cooper), tree-like humanoid Groot (voice of Vin Diesel), the deadly and enigmatic Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista). But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy's fate in the balance. Also starring John C. Reilly, Benicio del Toro and Djimon Hounsou, Guardians of the Galaxy 3D is directed and co-written by James Gunn (Super, Slither).

I ORIGINS  (R)  
-Baxter Avenue Theatres

I Origins tells the story of Dr. Ian Gray (Michael Pitt, The Dreamers, "Boardwalk Empire"), a molecular biologist whose study of the human eye points to evidence with far-reaching implications about our scientific and spiritual beliefs. Writer/director Mike Cahill's bold and original second feature film takes place in the same realm of speculative fiction as his last movie, Another Earth. A tale of science versus faith, reincarnation versus despair and life versus death, I Origins also stars Brit Marling (The East, Another Earth) and Astrid Bergès-Frisbey.

 
 
A MOST WANTED MAN (R) 
 
-Baxter Avenue Theatres             
Based on the bestselling novel by John le Carré and directed by Anton Corbijn (The American), this modern-day thriller begins when a mysterious man on the run (Grigoriy Dobrygin) arrives in Hamburg, Germany's Islamic community desperate for help. Nothing about this young man seems to add up; is he a victim or a thief or, worse still, an extremist intent on destruction? Drawn into this web of intrigue are a banker (Willem Dafoe) and a young lawyer (Rachel McAdams) determined to defend the defenseless. All the while, they are being watched by the brilliant, roguish chief of a covert German spy unit (Philip Seymour Hoffman), who fights to put the pieces together as the clock ticks. In an adrenaline-laced and heart-rending escalation of tension and collision, it's not long before he becomes everyone's most wanted man. A cerebral tale of intrigue in the vein of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, A Most Wanted Man is also deeply human, touching themes in love, rivalry and politics we live with every day.

 AS IT IS IN HEAVEN 
 
-Village 8 Theatres
LOUISVILLE EXCLUSIVE/NEW RELEASE

After the death of the Prophet, a man is called to lead his small religious sect as they anxiously await the end of the world they were promised. Director Joshua Overbay deftly leads audiences down a twisting path of passion and devotion, envy and manipulation in this sympathetic portrayal of a modern-day cult leader and his spiritual convictions. Devoted to a simple life of faith in unforgiving Kentucky backcountry, a small religious sect seeks spiritual awakening as their Prophet (John Lina) nears death and his son, Eamon (Luke Beavers), prepares to step forward as their new leader. But, in his last moments, the Prophet instead names newcomer David (Chris Nelson) as his spiritual successor.
