TEXAS CHAINSAW 3-D
Evil wears many faces in this new horror thriller shot in 3-D.
A young woman travels to Texas to collect an inheritance; little does she know that an encounter with the chainsaw-wielding killer, Leatherface, is part of her reward. This is the newest story in the popular, long-running series of horror films.
“Texas Chainsaw 3-D” opens nationally, including at the Luxury 5 Cinemas, Friday. 92 minutes. It is presented in 3-D and 2-D at alternating showtimes. It is rated R for strong grisly violence and language throughout.
Daniel Day-Lewis stars as the president in this critically acclaimed movie about Lincoln’s fight with Congress during the Civil War to outlaw slavery forever. The film was directed by Steven Spielberg.
The film focuses on the last four months of the president’s life and the political strategizing he had to undertake at the close of the Civil War to ram the Emancipation Proclamation through a divided Congress. The film is based on the bestselling book, “A Team of Rivals.”
Spielberg said, “Our movie is really about a working leader who must make tough decisions and get things done in the face of overwhelming opposition.”
The film also stars Sally Fields, Tommy Lee Jones, Hal Holbrook, James Spader and David Strathairn.
“Lincoln” is held over. 150 minutes. It is rated PG-13 for an intense scene of war violence, some images of carnage and brief strong language.
Generations and child-rearing styles clash in this new comedy starring Billy Crystal, Bette Midler and Marisa Tomei.
Comedy legends Crystal and Midler play the grandparents who are called in by their daughter (Tomei) to help care for their three grandkids. When their old-school parenting methods collide with their daughter’s new-school ways, the once-orderly household hilariously spins out of control.
“Parental Guidance” is held over. 105 minutes. It is rated PG for some rude humor.
THIS IS 40
Judd Apatow, the writer/director/producer of “Knocked Up,” brings this follow-up to his earlier hit.
This outrageous new comedy expands upon the story of Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) from “Knocked Up.” We see first-hand how they are dealing with their new life of relationships, marriage, children, jobs and old friends.
“This is 40” is held over. 134 minutes. It is rated R for sexual content, crude humor, pervasive language and some drug material.
THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY
This new prequel to the “Lord of The Rings” movies follows Bilbo Baggins, as he is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.
Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of 13 dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the wild; through treacherous lands swarming with goblins and orcs, deadly wargs and giant spiders, shapeshifters and sorcerers.
“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” is held over. 169 minutes. It is rated PG-13 for extended sequences of intense fantasy action violence and frightening images.
Walt Disney and Pixar have rendered this favorite animated hit into 3-D for this re-release.
The monsters under your bed when you were a child are real and actually work for “Monsters, Inc.” But the secret is, they’re as afraid of humans as we are of them. When a little girl goes where no human as gone before and enters their world, everything is in an uproar.
“Monsters, Inc.” is held over through Monday. 95 minutes. It is presented in 2-D at all showings this week. It is rated G for all ages.
