Admission (PG-13): Tina Fey is a Princeton University admissions officer who runs into an old classmate (Paul Rudd) with a gifted kid - the same boy she put up for adoption years earlier. What are the chances? No, seriously: What are the chances?
Olympus Has Fallen (R): In the midst of a terrorist attack on Washington, a security agent (Gerard Butler) is the only person capable of saving the life of the president (Aaron Eckhart). Then Katherine Heigl shows up and romance blooms, complicating everything. Just kidding about that last part.
Stoker (R): South Korean master Chan-wook Park ( Oldboy, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance) makes his Hollywood debut with this thriller about a young woman (Mia Wasikowska) whose strange uncle (Matthew Goode) moves in with her and her crazy mother (Nicole Kidman) after her father dies.
No (R): Gael Garcia Bernal is an advertising executive who gets pulled into the political arena during a 1988 referendum to unseat Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet.
Spring Breakers (R): Director Harmony Korine ( Gummo) returns with this raunchy comedy about a sleazebag (James Franco) who bails four wild-and-crazy gals out of prison and lead them on a series of adventures involving wet T-shirt contests and beer bongs.
Top Of The Lake (9 p.m. Monday, Sundance Channel): Written, produced and directed by Jane Campion (The Piano), this series about an isolated little mountain town where a 12-year-old girl turns up pregnant, then goes missing, is creepily irresistible.
Bates Motel (10 p.m. Monday, A&E): Three sequels, a shot-for-shot remake, and now Psycho is getting a prequel. My suggestion: Wait until next year’s Norman Bates Meets Freddie Krueger, Jason & Godzilla, with Justin Bieber in the title role. One of them, anyway.
Forecasting The End (9 p.m. Thursday, Weather Channel): Apparently disappointed that they didn’t get a piece of the Mayan-end-of-the-world action last year, the Weather Channel is offering up a new series depicting how the planet could be snuffed out by super-volcanoes. Or mega-tsunamis. Or rogues planets. Or a massive methane eruption, possibly triggered by Norman, Freddie, Jason and Godzilla.
Chupacabra Vs. The Alamo (9 p.m. Saturday, Syfy): If I didn’t get you with “chupacabra” or “Alamo,” let me try one more: Erik Estrada! And whoever it was who asked, “does he play the chupacabra?” you’re just mean.
