"Third Star" (August 14)
Sherlock Holmes himself, Benedict Cumberbatch, stars in this comically revealing drama about a close group of friends who take an ill-advised trip to the coast of West Wales. Trekking through the unforgiving landscape to camp on a long-beloved beach, the friends fight, laugh, drink and have a rather strange (and shirtless) encounter with Hugh Bonneville ("Downton Abbey"), which brings them together in a way they never thought possible. Think of it as Britain's answer to "The Hangover," minus the tiger, baby and Vegas-type shenanigans.

"Why Stop Now" (August 17)
Previously known as "Predisposed" back when it played at the Sundance Film Festival, "Why Stop Now" pairs up recent Academy Award nominee Jesse Eisenberg with Oscar winner Melissa Leo as a dysfunctional mother/son duo. Directed by Phil Dorling and Ron Nyswaner, "Why Stop Now" follows one hell of a chaotic day in the life of a piano prodigy (Eisenberg) who on the day of a very important audition for a prestigious program is forced to help his drug-addicted mother (Leo) get her fix from her drug dealer (Tracy Morgan) so she can qualify for rehab. Yes, you read that right.
