Screen gems


The week ahead at the movies and on TV

Big screen

Opening Friday

Gangster Squad (R) The LAPD (including Ryan Gosling and Josh Brolin) declares war on mobster Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) in this film, bumped from its original fall release slot due to the Aurora, Colo., theater shooting.

Rust and Bone (R) Marion Cotillard stars as a killer whale trainer who suffers a horrible accident in this French drama.

A Haunted House (R) A couple (Marlon Wayans, Essence Atkins) move into a house that turns out to be haunted. Who you gonna call?

Small screen

Deception (10 p.m. Monday, NBC) Was the death of a party-girl heiress an accidental drug overdose — or murder? An undercover FBI agent discovers the case is more complicated than it looks in this new crime drama.

Cougar Town (10 p.m. Tuesday, TBS ) Booted by ABC, the sitcom starring Courteney Cox as a dizzy and often inebriated divorcee pops up on TBS for its fourth season.

Weird Florida: On the Road Again! (8 p.m. Wednesday, WLRN-PBS 17) More visits to egregiously bizarre Florida locales. Watch while you can; one of these days, the Tourism Police will shut this show down.

Nashville (10 p.m. Wednesday, ABC) The country-and-western-scented soap with Connie Britton ( Friday Night Lights) as a fading star and Hayden Panettiere ( Heroes) as the ruthlessly ambitious kid gunning to take her place is the best survivor of the 2012 broadcast crop.

Banshee (10 p.m. Friday, Cinemax) Executive Producer Alan Ball’s True Blood took place in a redneck Louisiana town populated mostly by vampires and werewolves. This one is set in a snug Pennsylvania Amish town full of neo-Nazi skinheads, Asian cross-dressers and Ukrainian gangsters. I shudder to think what a Ball remake of Mayberry RFD might look like.
