Escape from Planet Earth, Rated PG

Ready to meet your new favorite animated heroes?

From the planet Baab comes a group of rag-tag aliens in "Escape From Planet Earth." The film follows brawny astronaut Scorch Supernova (Brendan Fraser), who travels to "The Dark Planet" (aka Earth) with his friends. But, when the mission goes awry, they're all thrown in Area 51. With Baab's national treasure detained, Scorch's brainy brother embarks on a quest to save him. 

A Good Day to Die Hard, Rated R

Get ready for some serious father-son bonding -- and lots of old man jokes -- in "A Good Day To Die Hard."

From John Moore ("Behind Enemy Lines"), the newest "Die Hard" adventure follows John McClane (Bruce Willis) as he travels to Russia to rescue his potentially wayward son (Jai Courtney). Once there, he discovers his boy is actually a CIA operative. Soon the duo find themselves battling (surprise!) terrorists with a taste for destruction/large sums of money.   

Beautiful Creatures, Rated PG-13

Based on the first in the five-book series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, "Beautiful Creatures" follows 16-year-old Ethan Wate, who lives in the small Southern town of Gatlin, South Carolina, where nothing ever changes and people still think of the Civil War as "The War of Northern Aggression." But on the first day of sophomore year, Wate (Alden Ehrenreich) meets the mysterious Lena Duchannes (Alice Englert), the niece of the town recluse (Jeremy Irons) and the literal girl of his dreams. As Ethan quickly discovers, Lena is no ordinary teenager, and their relationship isn't just based on attraction but a psychic connection that's destined to change their lives.
