THE FAULT IN OUR STARS
This new romantic comedy is based on the bestselling book.
Hazel and Gus are two extraordinary teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them -- and us -- on an unforgettable journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous, given that they meet and fall in love at a cancer support group. "The Fault in Our Stars," based upon the No. 1 bestselling novel by John Green, explores the funny, thrilling and tragic business of being alive and in love.
"The Fault in Our Stars" starts Friday nationally including at the Luxury 5 Cinemas. 125 minutes. It's rated PG-13 for thematic elements, some sexuality and brief strong language.
EDGE OF TOMORROW
Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt star in this new action hit.
In the near future, a hive-like alien race called Mimics have invaded the earth. No army can match the Mimics' speed, brutality or ability to anticipate the moves of their enemies. Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously demoted and dropped untrained and ill-equipped into what amounts to little more than a suicide mission. Cage is killed within minutes, managing to take an Alpha down with him. But, impossibly, he awakens back at the beginning of the same hellish day, and is forced to fight and die again and again. Direct physical contact with the alien has thrown him into a time loop dooming him to live out the same brutal combat over and over. With each pass, Cage is able to engage the Mimics with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt), who has lain waste to more Mimics than anyone on Earth.
"Edge of Tomorrow" starts Friday nationally, including at the Luxury 5 Cinemas. 113 minutes. It's rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi action and violence, language and brief suggestive material.

It is an endearing true-to-life family comedy that celebrates the beautiful mess called parenting.
