THE CROODS: 3-D
“The Croods” is a 3-D comedy adventure that takes us back to the beginning — to a previously undiscovered era known as the Croodacious — a time when people still lived in caves and were — crude.
At the heart of this comically chaotic world is the Crood family, led by Grug (Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage) an overprotective dad. When their cave is threatened, Grug must take the family on the world's first road trip. Grug, his wife (Catherine Keener), kids (Emma Stone and Clark Duke) and ornery mother-in-law (Cloris Leachman) set out to find a new cave to call home. Along the way, they encounter dangerous adventure and amazing animals. Luckily they meet Guy (Ryan Reynolds), an imaginative and resourceful teenager who loves to take risks. Audiences will relate to the hilarious family antics as Guy helps the Croods navigate their way into the bright future.

Steve Carell and Jim Carrey are rival magicians embroiled in an all-out feud in this new comedy.
Superstar magicians Burt Wonderstone (Carell) and Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi) have ruled the Las Vegas strip for years, raking in millions with illusions as big as Burt's growing ego. But lately the duo's greatest deception is their public friendship — off stage they fight like cats and dogs.

OZ: THE GREAT AND POWERFUL
Walt Disney's new family adventure tells the story of the origins of L. Frank Baum's beloved character, the Wizard of Oz.
When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he's hit the jackpot --fame and fortune are his for the taking. That is, until he meets three witches, played by Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams. Reluctantly drawn into the epic rivalries facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late.
With illusion, ingenuity and a bit of wizardry, Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well. But is it enough to save Oz?
