Anyone who has ever shared the road with a Manhattan bicycle messenger knows that they're a thrill-seeking, possibly suicidal lot. Director David Koepp, who also wrote this season's Men in Black III, gives the Speed treatment to the fixed-gear, no-brakes set in this against-the-clock thriller, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a skilled cyclist whose delivery payload is being hunted by Michael Shannon's homicidal cop. One ill-timed car-door opening and it's all over, roll credits. (Sony Pictures)

Adapted by Australian rock icon and screenwriter Nick Cave (The Proposition) from Matt Bondurant's true-life family tales in his lyrical novel The Wettest County in the World, this Prohibition-era crime drama chronicles the three Bondurant brothers of Franklin County, Virginia (Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, and Jason Clarke), and their fight against outsiders, including gangster Gary Oldman and deputy Guy Pearce, who want a taste of their moonshine bootlegging operation. The ubiquitous Jessica Chastain also stars as Hardy's love interest from the big city. John Hillcoat directs. (The Weinstein Company)
