At the Movies
Walt Disney's new animated comedy adventure is set in the exciting world of airplane racing.
Dusty is a big-hearted, fast-flying crop duster plane who dreams of competing in the biggest around-the-world air race in history. There's just one problem: Dusty's afraid of heights! Despite his fear, and with the help of a naval aviator named Skipper, he narrowly qualifies for the race. Dusty's sportsmanship and speed begin to rattle the defending champ, Ripslinger, who will stop at nothing to see Dusty fail. Dusty's courage is put to the ultimate test in the movie's exciting climax.
The movie stars the voices of Stacy Keach, Jon Cryer, Dave Cook, Val Kilmer, Teri Hatcher, John Cleese, Sinbad, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Brent Musburger.

Matt Damon and Jodie Foster star in this new sci-fi adventure.
In the year 2159, two classes of people exist: The very wealthy, who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Rhodes (Jodie Foster), a hard-line government official, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn't stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky Max (Matt Damon) is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that if successful will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.
"Elysium" opens nationally, including at the Luxury 5 Cinemas, Friday. 109 minutes. It's rated R for strong, bloody violence and language throughout.
WE'RE THE MILLERS
Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis and Emma Roberts star in this new comedy.
David Burke (Sudeikis) is a small-time pot dealer whose clientele includes chefs and soccer moms, but no kids; after all, he has his scruples. So what could go wrong? Plenty.
He learns the hard way that no good deed goes unpunished when he tries to help out some local teens and winds up getting jumped by a trio of gutter punks. Stealing his stash and his cash, they leave him in major debt to his supplier, Brad (Ed Helms). In order to wipe his slate clean and stay alive, David must now become a big-time drug smuggler by bringing Brad's latest shipment in from Mexico. He devises a foolproof plan -- pose as an average American family on vacation. The problem is, he has no family. So he twists the arms of his neighbors, a cynical stripper (Aniston) to be his fake wife, plus a wannabe customer (Will Poulter), and a tatted-and-pierced streetwise teen (Roberts) to pose as kids. They head south of the border in a shiny RV for a Fourth of July weekend that is sure to end with a bang.
