CHERNOBYL DIARIES A group of American tourists stomp into the ghost town of Pripyat, which has been left vacant since the Chernobyl disaster in 1986. They’re looking for an “extreme tour,” and instead find themselves hunted by what may or may not be a monster created by radiation. Good possibilities for a fun horror movie vibe, considering this was a real disaster and everything. Opens May 25.
MEN IN BLACK 3 Holy shit, the second one came out 10 years ago? Once you’ve gotten over your awareness of your own mortality, check out this 3D continuation of the sci-fi/comedy franchise. It might still have some life left in it. Opens May 25.

THE TROJAN HORSE A heavily oiled Steve Reeves, massive muscles, and fantastic interpretations of Greek myths. Probably nothing at all like Homer’s Iliad, but if your star is Mr. Universe you can pretty much do whatever the hell you want. At Yellow Sign Theatre, 1726 N. Charles St., May 23 at 9 p.m.
THE ADVENTURES OF BUCKSKIN JACK This colonial musical tells the story of Buckskin Jack, a political rebel living a double life. The film’s web site promises disco, reggae, and beach music, which should prove interesting coming from a bunch of dudes in powdered wigs. At the Charles Theatre May 23 at 7 p.m.
