Based on a 50-year-old film and an even older short story by Elmore Leonard, 3:10 to Yuma casts Russell Crowe as an outlaw and Christian Bale as the hapless rancher, suckered by a sense of duty into taking him to meet a certain train to Arizona. (LB) Rated R





SHOOT 'EM UP


A satire -- on the shoot 'em up, obviously -- the film stars Clive Owen as the unkillable, gravity-defying, sharp-shooting hero and Paul Giamatti as the assassin for hire charged with killing a little girl, for some reason or another. The initial teaser looked whip-smart. Subsequent, longer trailers have looked considerably more dull. (LB) Rated R
