Thrillseekers will be right at home at movie theaters this weekend. A handful of releases aim to get hearts pumping, from the fast-paced bike messenger film "Premium Rush," starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, to thrillers like "Compliance," "The Loneliest Planet," and "The Apparition." Viewers could also find excitement in watching Robert Pattinson team up with director David Cronenberg for "Cosmopolis" or Bradley Cooper reunite with the producer of "Wedding Crashers" for "Hit & Run." But true cinephiles might find their kicks in the documentary "Side by Side," where film itself is examined by the likes of James Cameron, Martin Scorcese, and David Fincher.
