From visionary director Jonathan Glazer (SEXY BEAST, BIRTH) comes a stunning career transformation, a masterpiece of existential science fiction that journeys to the heart of what it means to be human, extraterrestrial—or something in between. A voluptuous woman of unknown origin (Scarlett Johansson) combs the highways in search of isolated or forsaken men, luring a succession of lost souls into an otherworldly lair. They are seduced, stripped of their humanity, and never heard from again.

Based on the novel by Michel Faber (The Crimson Petal and the White), UNDER THE SKIN examines human experience from the perspective of an unforgettable heroine who grows too comfortable in her borrowed skin, until she is abducted into humanity with devastating results.

Fans of Joss Whedon show Serenity on his birthday to honor him and to raise money for

his favorite charity, Equality Now. Equality Now works to end violence and discrimination against women and girls around the world through the mobilization of public pressure.

In addition to raising money for Equality Now, we will also be collecting non-perishable food items for Rosie’s Place, a sanctuary for poor and homeless women that offers emergency and long-term assistance to women. In the past six years the New England Browncoats have collected over 2,500 lbs. for local charities.

About Serenity: A passenger with a deadly secret. Six rebels on the run. An assassin in pursuit. When the renegade crew of Serenity agrees to hide a fugitive on their ship, they find themselves in an action-packed battle between the relentless military might of a totalitarian regime who will destroy anything – or anyone – to get the girl back and the bloodthirsty creatures who roam the uncharted areas of space. But, the greatest danger of all may be on their ship. From the mind of Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire SlayerAngel) comes a new edge-of-your seat adventure loaded with explosive battles, gripping special effects and fantastic new worlds. Serenity is rated PG-13 by the MPAA.

MA – Silent Bob Speaks

Kevin Smith appears at the Coolidge Corner Theatre on Thursday, March 22, 2012 at 7:00pm!

Press Release:

Join the Coolidge in welcoming Kevin Smith (director of Clerks and Mallrats, writer of Silent Bob Speaks and The Bionic Man) for an exclusive Boston appearance in support of his hilarious new book TOUGH SH*T: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good (Gotham Books, March 20, 2012, available in Hardcover, eBook and Penguin Audio). In it nothing is off limits, it’s a memoir that unlocks his unlikely path to success. For this special evening Kevin will discuss the book and answer questions from the audience.

This isn’t a book of feel-good stories. It’s a book of Tough Sh*t. He talks about the critics who’ve savaged his films and the actors and executives who’ve made him hate what he loves. He discusses his fallout out with Harvey Weinstein and The Weinstein Company and his feuds with Bruce Willis. He examines his struggles with weight, the infamous Southwest Airlines incident, and why he decided to start smoking pot at the age of 38. But he also tells you the good stuff you get if you suffer through the Tough Sh*t, like his amazing wife Jen, who suffers through marriage to a sex-obsessed fatty.

Sprinkled throughout, Kevin offers his readers gems of life advice that have helped him along the way: like what he learned from his hero Wayne Gretzky – “Don’t go where the puck’s been; go where it’s gonna be;” from the very act of conception – “You’re a big, fat bucket of win when you begin this crapshoot life;” and from Ferris Bueller: “You can never go too far. But if you’re gonna get busted, don’t let it be by a guy like that.”

Fanboys, film-buffs, stoners, fatties, skinnies, Smodcasters and anyone who wants to know how to get away with getting paid for doing what they love will find something to like in this book.

All tickets: $28, ticket price includes a signed copy of the book to be picked up upon arrival at the theatre.
