Movies Our weekly look at the movies. This week… Brick Mansions is an action remake of a 2004 French film. It stars the late Paul Walker from the Fast & Furious series. Locke has only one on-screen character, played by Tom Hardy, and takes place entirely within the confines of a BMW. Indie film Blue Ruin is a revenge thriller that won the International Critics Prize at Cannes last year. And finally, two new films are in production: a live action Barbie and a Peeps movie. Peeps... you know... the sugar-encrusted marshmallow Easter candy.
