Weekly Movie Math: Love, Music and Pirates

Sony Sony

Your mother always told you math class would be important, but you probably didn't know that you'd need an equation to decide whether you'd rather see Tom Hanks conquer the high seas or Rupert Grint slay a dirty basement club using only his pasty, wizardly butt cheeks.

Yes, Movie Math is back to deliver the thrills and chills of this week's new releases, breaking down Somali pirates and updated Shakespearean lovers alike.

Weekly Movie Math: Outer Space Edition

Gravity Warner Bros.

Your mother always told you that math class was important, but we bet you had no idea how useful it would be when it comes to choosing which new releases are worth a trip to the cineplex.

This week, we hit the books to break down the vastness of Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" (we know it's not October 3rd anymore, but will you allow us one little belated "the limit does not exist" joke?) and the decidedly more earth-bound "Runner Runner."

Weekly Movie Math: Eat It Up, Lick It Up

Don Jon's Addiction Sundance.org

Your mother always told you math would be important, you just didn't know it would help you decide which new movie to see this weekend.

Yes, we're getting started on our Mother's Day present early, while sneaky educating you in the process. See, there are so many new movies these days, we have to break them down into their most basic, mathematic form to understand them. Oh, the agony. In this case, x = the loving embrace of the cineplex.

So whether you're looking for Mr. Right at "Baggage Claim," hoping for the click of satisfaction with "Don Jon" or hungry for "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2," there's something for you this weekend. Click ahead for this week's movie math. Get More »

Weekly Movie Math: Zoom, Zoom

Universal Universal

Your mother always said math class would be important, you just didn't know that that algebra you tried to snooze through would help you decide which movies to see this weekend.

We here at NextMovie know that it can be overwhelming trying to decipher the new releases and decide what's for you, so we've done what any mathematician worth their salt would and broke down this week's new movies to their individual components.

Whether you're looking to feel the "Rush" or don't think there can ever be "Enough Said" about the late James Gandolfini's work as a leading man, there's something here for you. Read on for this week's movie math. Get More »

Weekly Movie Math: And Then There Were Two

Relativity Relativity

Consider it the calm before the storm: This weekend, only two new wide releases are gracing the big screens. While your days off this week may find you twiddling your thumbs and heading to Netflix to fill in all the extra minutes that the two lonely features leave free (anyone who doesn't spend every available second of their weekend watching movies baffles us), come November and the bow of awards season, you'll yearn for these uncrowded weekends.

Your mother always said that math would be important, you just didn't know it would apply to your weekly movie selections. Now is the time to study up on your movie math equations, because the final exam isn't that far off. Whether you can't get enough of Robert De Niro's comic turn as a hitman under witness protection in "The Family" or you loved "Insidious" and can't wait to get insidious-er with "Insidious Chapter 2," we've broken it all down into simple arithmetic for you.

Weekly Movie Math: Mom Brought A Stripper Home

Magnolia Magnolia

Your mother always told you math would be important, you just didn't think it would apply to making your picks of what new movies to catch this weekend.

Luckily, NextMovie has you covered with our weekly movie math, breaking down the week's new releases to help you decide exactly what you're interested in seeing. And even luckier for you, this is a long weekend, which just means more time to spend in the theater.

This week, whether you're hankering for a stripper helping a depressed subruban mom find her truth ("Afternoon Delight"), two hours of Selena Gomez on a dashboard cam ("Getaway") or yet another movie that'll make you want to throw away your cell phone ("Closed Circuit"), there's something out there for you.

Weekly Movie Math: Chug, Chug, Chug

The World's End Universal

Your mother always told you math would be important, you just didn't expect it to come in handy in quite this way. See, equations are going to help you out when it comes to deciding what to see at the multiplex this weekend.

We'll admit something that your mom probably wouldn't be quite as into: this week's Movie Math is probably our drunkest yet. Between "Drinking Buddies" and "The World's End," the brews they are a-flowin'. And we're not ashamed to admit that we may require a little liquid courage to make it through "You're Next," which looks like it'll haunt our dreams.

Whether you're sipping to cope or for some other reason, without further ado: This week's Movie Math. Get More »

Weekly Movie Math: Butlers and Austen and Steve, Oh My!

jOBS Open Road

Your mother always told you that math class would be important, she probably just didn't envision it coming in handy when you're picking which new releases to see this weekend.

Luckily, we here at NextMovie have a slightly less numerical view of math. We work better with pictures. That's why we've broken down this week's new releases, from the entrepreneurial "jOBS" to the surreal nature of "Austenland," into simple equations.
