'The Raven' (April 27)
Baltimore-set, but Belgrade-and-Budapest-filmed, ┐The Raven┐ features a new take on Edgar Allan Poe. John Cusack stars as the author as he assists a Baltimore detective (Welsh actor Luke Evans, ┐Immortals┐) when a slew of murders in our fair city seem to be inspired by Poe tales. Side note: Authors always fear this, and we're often prepared to track down serial killers.
Our excitement level: 5. We really want to be giddy about this, but early bad reviews leave us wary. The trailer's pretty kickass, though. Mid-19th-century Baltimore looks pretty grimy.
