Hope Springs (PG-13): David Frankel ( The Devil Wears Prada, Marley and Me) directs this restrained comedy about a middle-aged couple (Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones) who turn to a professional therapist (Steve Carell) to help them sex up their 30-year marriage.
The Bourne Legacy (PG-13): Having taken Jason Bourne’s story as far as it could go, writer-director Tony Gilroy (who scripted the first three movies) introduces a secret agent (Jeremy Renner) forced to go on the run for mysterious reasons. Newcomers Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton and Oscar Isaac join series veterans Joan Allen, Albert Finney and David Strathairn.
The Campaign (R): Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis are dueling politicians with presidential nominations in this timely comedy from director Jay Roach ( Austin Powers, HBO’s Game Change).
Ruby Sparks (R): As a way to get past his writer’s block, an author (Paul Dano) conjures the girl of his dreams and puts her into a story. Then he’s shocked when he runs into a flesh-and-blood version of her (Zoe Kazan).
Dark Horse (unrated): The latest unnerving comedy from writer-director Todd Solondz ( Happiness, Storytelling) centers on a thirty-something layabout (Justin Bartha) trying to move out of his parents’ house for the first time. Selma Blair, Mia Farrow and Christopher Walken co-star.
Go On (10 p.m. Wednesday, NBC) Hoping to take advantage of record Nielsen ratings for the London Olympics, NBC is slipping a sneak preview of this new sitcom into the middle of its coverage. Matthew Perry of Friends stars as a newly widowed but snarky as ever sports-talk host whose boss forces him into a grief-counseling support group. Pretty soon he’s got the members staging whose-heart-is-broken-the-most tournaments. “Dark” seems inadequate to describe this sitcom.
Key Largo (12 a.m. Saturday, Turner Classic Movies) Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Lionel Barrymore and a couple of others are holed up in a nearly empty hotel as a hurricane approaches. Then Edward G. Robinson arrives. He’s not selling storm shutters. This 1948 film was the fourth and final film pairing of Bogie and Bacall — and also watch out for Claire Trevor, who won an Oscar for her role as a barroom floozy.
