Several new movies hit the local theater this weekend. If you're looking for comedy, horror, or some independent films, this weekend offers up a mixed bag of flicks. I think my personal pick is going to be the new Kevin James comedy "Here Comes the Boom."

'Argo' is based on a true story and follows a CIA operative who uses a fake sci-fi movie to extract six Americans from Iran during the hostage crisis of 1979.

In 'Sinister,' Ethan Hawke plays an author who moves his family into a new home and discovers the previous family who lived there was murdered.

'Seven Psychopaths' features an all-star cast in a tale of dog robbery gone wrong and the unlucky screenwriter who gets caught up in the mix.

'Here Comes the Boom' stars Kevin James as a schoolteacher who enters the world of mixed martial arts to raise the money he needs to save extracurricular activities at his school.

In 'Atlas Shrugged: Part 2' Danny Taggart has found the key that will help him put a stop to the mounting global and economic crises.

In 'Nobody Walks' an attractive young artist and filmmaker visits a sound designer and his family while he helps her with a film project, but their attraction to each other creates conflict.

'Smashed' tells the story of an addict couple whose entire relationship is built on alcohol; when the wife tries to clean up her act, their relationship becomes strained.
