New Movies This Weekend

Mirror, Mirror – PG on 3,603 screens
The first of two Snow White movies due out this year. This comedic re-telling of the classic tale stars Lily Collins as the title character. Julia Roberts is the evil Queen who’s taken Snow White’s kingdom away from her. The Social Network actor Armie Hammer plays the Prince. Mirror Mirror is not to be confused with Snow White and the Huntsman, the Kristen Stewart-Charlize Theron drama opening in June.

Wrath of the Titans – PG-13 on 3,545 screens
The sequel to the 2010 Clash of the Titans remake once again stars Sam Worthington as Perseus, who’s half-man and half-god. He seeks to rescue a captured Zeus from the Titans. Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes also star in the film which is screening in 3D as well.

Bully – No Rating opening on 5 screens
The Weinstein Company announced earlier this week it would release an unrated version of its teen bullying documentary after it failed to win an appeal of the R rating assigned to the film by the Motion Picture Association of America. Bully director Lee Hirsch says his hope for the documentary is that “people will see the film, engage in conversation, make a choice to do things differently”.

Enjoy the show!
