John Cusack leads Marisa Tomei out of the rubble in “War, Inc.,” distributed by First Look Studios.
PINELLAS COUNTY – A number of new movie releases will hit theaters on May 23, including the following:

“Indian Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” – Like its predecessors, “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” promises to distinguish itself from anything else in the cinema landscape by Steven Spielberg’s unparalleled vision, George Lucas’s limitless imagination and Harrison Ford’s embodiment of a timeless adventure hero.

From his first appearance nearly 27 years ago, Indiana Jones has become one of the most beloved heroes of the silver screen. The long wait for another Indiana Jones adventure is finally over.

“We created Indiana Jones, but it belongs to the world,” said director Steven Spielberg in a recent press release from Paramount Pictures. “And now we’re the custodians. Our job really is to serve up a huge helping not only of what Indiana Jones means to audiences who grew up with it, but to introduce the character to those who haven’t. This new film is for the fans.” Rated PG-13.

“The Children of Huang Shi” – The Sony Pictures Classics film “The Children of Huang Shi,” directed by Roger Spottiswoode, stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Radha Mitchell and Chow Yun-Fat. Based on real events, the story is set against the war-torn China of the 1930s and centers on an English journalist, an American nurse and the leader of a Chinese partisan group who rescue a group of orphaned children. Rated R.

“War, Inc.” – In the vein of “Grosse Pointe Blank,” First Look Pictures’ “War, Inc.” is a political satire set in Turaqistan, a country occupied by an American private corporation run by a former US Vice-President (Dan Aykroyd). In an effort to monopolize the opportunities the war-torn nation offers, the corporation’s CEO hires a troubled hit man, played by John Cusack, to kill a Middle Eastern oil minister. Now, struggling with his own growing demons, the assassin must pose as the corporation’s Trade Show Producer in order to pull off this latest hit, while maintaining his cover by organizing the high-profile wedding of Yonica Babyyeah (Hilary Duff) an outrageous Central Asian pop star, and keeping a sexy left wing reporter (Marisa Tomei) in check. Rated R.
