After the beautiful and wicked Ravenna (Charlize Theron) kills the king and seizes his kingdom, she imprisons the young princess in Snow White and The Huntsman. Asking "Who's the fairest of them all," the evil queen gets a new answer from her magic mirror when the princess, Snow White (Kristen Stewart), comes of age-- the same day Snow escapes into the Dark Forest. Only Snow White's fairest-of-the-fair blood can destroy Ravenna, so the queen sends a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) into the forest after her, but Snow, the huntsman, and a group of renegade dwarves (led by Ian McShane) band together to raise an army. Only Snow White can break the curse that has ruined the kingdom, reclaim her father's castle, and defeat the evil Ravenna. With Bob Hoskins. On DVD and Blu Ray.
In a small Lebanese village, the Christian church sitting next to a Muslim mosque cause no end of trouble among the men in Where Do We Go Now, but the women of the village have had enough. Told as a lighthearted fable, the film has the ladies gather in the local cafe and plot to keep religious violence out of their town-- they sabotage the village's only television to keep out reports of Christian/Muslim strife, fake possessions by spirits, and even hire Ukrainian belly dancers as a distraction. They probably can't keep the men's minds off conflict forever... but they can try.
Like last month's Think Like a Man, What to Expect when You're Expecting is an ensemble comedy based on a popular self-help book. Popular TV personalities Cameron Diaz and Matthew Morrison find themselves suddenly expecting, and have to tailor their "Dancing with the Stars"-like public life to their pregnancy. Photographer Jennifer Lopez and music producer Rodrigo Santoro can't get pregnant and are planning to adopt. Elizabeth Banks is a maternity expert excited to experience what she's been writing about, but she and Ben Falcone aren't prepared for the nausea, back pain, and discomfort. Independent food truck owners Anna Kendrick and Chase Crawford are surprised when their one-night-stand has unexpected consequences. All of the couples have to cope with the changes that come with the new babies on the way, but none of them know quite what to expect. On DVD and Blu Ray.
Straight-A student Ansiedad (Cierra Ramirez) is tired of her mother's (Eva Mendes) lack of attention, constant moving, and revolving cast of boyfriends in Patricia Riggen's Girl in Progress, and her English class' focus on "coming of age" stories gives her an idea. She researches as many coming-of-age stories as she can and devises a checklist of everything that needs to happen to a girl to make her an adult: she'll fall in with the wrong crowd, start missing school, have an awkward first kiss, abandon her faithful best friend, experiment with drugs, and lose her virginity to the school lothario (Landon Liboiron). If she checks off all the items on her list, she thinks she'll be grown up enough to leave home and get away from her mother... but she doesn't know what her new path will lead her towards. With Matthew Modine.
15-year-old Tuscon native Ellis (Graham Phillips) can't wait to fly off to an east coast prep school in Goats. He lives with his wealthy, self-centered mother (Vera Farmiga) and Goat Man (David Duchovny), the constantly-stoned gardener who lives in their pool house, and the closest thing Ellis has to a father figure. When Ellis gets to school, he has a lot to learn about life outside the nest, but more importantly-- and the reason he chose an east coast school-- Ellis is now close enough to find his absentee father (Ty Burrell). The more he learns, the more Ellis discovers flaws in all of his assumptions about his own life, and those around him.
Set in 1983, Beyond the Black Rainbow centers on a mute girl (Eva Allan) in a cell at the Arborin institute and the doctor (Michael Rogers) overseeing her treatment. As their story unfolds-- her power, his strange condition-- the film warps into an unpredictable, hallucinogenic state. The girl tries to escape through a shifting reality and the doctor pursues her, though they're both navigating an unsteady dream world where logic can dissolve completely.
Lola (Robin McLeavy), the quietest girl in school, asks troubled, bad-boy Brent (Xavier Samuel) to the big dance in the Australian The Loved Ones, but Brent has a girlfriend and no time for the school outcast... until he wakes up tied to a chair. Lola is having her own dance, hosted by her father (John Brumpton), and even though Brent is the only guest, there are still streamers, lights, disco balls, syringes, hammers, knives, and drills. Lola's just looking for her prince charming... but she's been looking for a while, and if Brent doesn't want to end up like the rest of Lola's dates, he'll have to find a way to escape her twisted party.
A pair of action movies set among the special operations police in Rio de Janeiro, the Brazilian Elite Squad and Elite Squad: The Enemy Within follow the anti-drug raids targeting the drug lords in the City of God. Overseen by a battle weary chief (Wagner Moura), both films are charged with the chaos of the Rio underground, and the tense environment that puts the tactical police teams in the midst of kids making small-time deals, powerful kingpins with private armies, and citizens living in a tough neighborhood.
Bored Princess Victoria dreams of being a singer and famous pop star Keira dreams of being a princess in the newest Barbie movie, Barbie: The Princess and The Popstar, so Victoria and Keira magically switch places.
