Bullet to the Head (R): 1980s icons Sylvester Stallone and director Walter Hill ( 48 Hrs., The Warriors, Streets of Fire) team up for this throwback to the action pictures of that decade, starring Stallone as a hit man who teams up with a cop (Sung Kang) to take down some bad guys (including Christian Slater and Jason Momoa).
Warm Bodies (PG-13): Zombies are played for laughs in this comedy about a flesh-eating teen (Nicholas Hoult) who starts to develop feelings — not hunger — for a girl (Teresa Palmer).
Stand Up Guys (R): Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin play aging con men planning to pull off one last big heist.
The Makeover (9 p.m. Sunday, ABC) So, Julia Styles plays this political consultant named Hannah Higgins, who decides to polish up a rough-and-tumble beer vendor name Elliot Doolittle into a congressional candidate, and...wait...did anybody see that old movie with Audrey Hepburn...what was it called? My Fair something-or-other...
NOVA (9 p.m. Wednesday, WPBT-PBS 2) Forget who killed John F. Kennedy. Eight decades later, we’re still arguing about who kidnapped aviator Charles Lindbergh’s baby. Who Killed Lindbergh’s Baby?, an episode of the PBS science series NOVA, uses modern forensic techniques (or, if you prefer, cool CSI-ish gimmicks) to examine the various conspiracy theories.
Ultimate Warfare (10 p.m. Wednesday, Military Channel) A new documentary series offers a grunt’s-eye-view of famous modern battles. First up: the tank assault that cracked Saddam Hussein’s defense of Baghdad.
The Americans (10 p.m. Wednesday, FX) Keri Russell ( Felicity) and Matthew Rhys ( Brothers & Sisters) star as a pair of undercover KGB spies living in the Washington, D.C. ‘burbs in 1981. It’s hard to say what worries them more: that the FBI may be on their trail; that the tensions of a renewed Cold War is making their job more dangerous; or that their kids, unaware of who their parents really are, are turning into mini-Reaganites. Intelligent and enthralling and a show you just don’t plain want to miss.
Do No Harm (10 p.m. Thursday, NBC) A modern-day Jekyll-and-Hyde series featuring Steven Pasquale ( Nip/Tuck) as a respected neurosurgeon by day, a drug-addled sociopath by night. And guess what? His two personalities are plotting to rub one another out. Man, this Obamacare stuff is complicated.
