Everyone’s going to be talking about the superhero movie. But there actually are a couple of other tiny releases that have the misfortune of opening against the behemoth:

Ballerina, a lovely doc profiling five dancers from the Kirov Ballet; and

Phoebe in Wonderland
, which for some reason got zero promotion here despite starring Patricia Clarkson and a Fanning child.

If you must catch Watchmen this weekend, try for an off-peak showing. (Though if you haven’t bought your tickets yet, you probably don’t have any choice.) When you’re crammed against strangers in a hot theater, its nearly three hours may start to feel like days.
