This weekend, we get the sequel to a massive action blockbuster from a few years ago, plus a new animated tale about a boy and his dad, who is a dog.
'300: Rise of an Empire'
Another battle in the war between the Greeks and Persians that we first saw in 2007's '300,' this naval fight sees General Themistocles facing off against Artemisia and the Persian armada...
In the mood for some action? Good news! You can now do spy-thriller action or disaster-movie action. Choose wisely.
'3 Days to Kill'
A veteran secret agent must complete dual missions: stop a dangerous global terrorist, and look after his estranged daughter for the first time in 10 years...
What a great lineup of love-themed films hitting theaters this Valentine's Day weekend. So romantic, so heartwarming—wait, 'Robocop'? What the heck is 'Robocop' doing there? It's called counterprogramming, people.
To keep their passionate romance alive, a pair of star-crossed lovers must fight against their parents' attempts to keep them apart...
After a somewhat slow start to the moviegoing year, this weekend features three big-time pictures hitting theaters, with something for all ages.
'The Monuments Men'
In this true story of WWII, a group of museum directors and art historians is tasked by President Roosevelt with rescuing thousands of pieces of European art before Hitler and the Nazis can destroy them...
Oscar nominations came out Thursday morning, with films like 'American Hustle' and '12 Years a Slave' leading the way. You can probably bet that none of this weekend's new releases will figure into next year's Oscars, but that doesn't mean there won't be something you like. The four films opening wide on Friday cover a wide range of genres and styles, a little something for everyone.
Two of these ('Lone Survivor,' 'Her') aren't technically opening this weekend, but they are expanding to many more theaters. That, along with the year's first Hercules flick (yup, there's another one coming in July) and the recent slew of high-quality holiday releases, make for a very crowded cineplex.
The holiday movie season is in full swing already, leaving precious few screens available for anything new. This weekend we only get one big film opening. If you like the previous installments in this franchise, you should probably get a kick out of this one as well.
