America's Most Wanted

America's Most Wanted
9/8c Fox
Moviegoers of a certain age will certainly remember Peter Sellers as bumbling Inspector Clouseau in the Pink Panther movies (Steve Martin revived the role in recent years). The "pink panther" was a diamond that kept getting stolen, so it's no surprise that a hugely successful gang of real international jewel thieves have been dubbed "the Pink Panthers." But these guys — alleged to be veterans of the 1990s mayhem in the Balkans — are no bunglers: Estimates of their total haul begin at over $100 million. John Walsh joins Interpol in the hunt for them tonight. — Paul Droesch

Although James Cameron's 2009 sci-fi epic lost to The Hurt Locker, directed by his ex-wife, Kathryn Bigelow, for best picture and director at the Oscars, the Titanic director still had a winner on his hands... especially at the box office. Bolstered by Oscar-winning visual effects, the film follows a paraplegic marine (Sam Worthington) on a mission to the planet Pandora, where the indigenous Na'vi race have become an obstacle to a vital mining operation. The film is rated PG-13, and also stars Zoe Saldana and Sigourney Weaver. — Joe Friedrich

The Time Traveler's Wife

Love can be complicated during the best circumstances, but it's even harder when one partner is prone to travel through time without warning. That's the gist of this 2009 romantic fantasy, based on Audrey Niffenegger's best-selling novel, which stars Eric Bana as a librarian whose genetic disorder makes him a walking time machine, and Rachel McAdams as the titular spouse who is determined to build a stable relationship despite their unique dilemma. The film, rated PG-13, is directed by Robert Schwentke. — Joe Friedrich
