3 DAYS TO KILL
Kevin Costner and Amber Heard star in this new action thriller.
An elite government hit man finds out he has a terminal disease and only a few months to live. He quickly decides to give up his high stakes life to finally build a relationship with his estranged wife and daughter, whom he’s previously kept at arm’s length to keep out of danger.
But when his agency offers him an experimental, potentially life-saving drug in exchange for one last mission, it’s an offer he can’t refuse — even if it means juggling his two toughest assignments yet: going after the world’s most ruthless terrorist and caring for his daughter for the first time in 10 years while his wife is out of town.
“3 Days to Kill” starts Friday nationally including at the Luxury 5 Cinemas. 117 minutes. It’s rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, some sensuality and language.

Set in a mythic New York City and spanning more than a century, this timeless love story is one of miracles, crossed destinies and the age-old battle between good and evil.

George Clooney, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett and Bill Murray star in this true World War II story of the greatest treasure hunt in history.
This dramatic thriller focuses on an unlikely World War II platoon tasked with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. It would be an impossible mission: with the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, how could these guys — seven museum directors, curators and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than the M-1, possibly hope to succeed? But as the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1,000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind’s greatest achievements.
“Monuments Men” is held over. 130 minutes. It’s rated PG-13 for some images of war violence and historical smoking.

He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.
