Just a couple of films are opening wide this week, both for grownups as summer winds to a close and the kids head back to school. Here’s a look at what’s opening wide in theaters.

THE NOVEMBER MAN

Rated R for strong violence, including a sexual assault, language, sexuality/nudity and brief drug use | In Theaters 8/27 | Ok for Kids 17+ | Reel Preview: 4 of 5 Reels | TheNovemberMan.com | Facebook | Twitter

Code named ‘The November Man,’ Peter Devereaux (Pierce Brosnan) is a lethal and highly trained ex-CIA agent, who has been enjoying a quiet life in Switzerland. When Devereaux is lured out of retirement for one last mission, he must protect a valuable witness, Alice Fournier, (Olga Kurylenko). He soon uncovers this assignment marks him a target of his former friend and CIA protégé David Mason (Luke Bracey). With growing suspicions of a mole in the agency, there is no one Devereaux can trust, no rules and no holds barred. Love seeing Brosnan back in Bond mode, even if it’s not Bond.
