In prehistoric times, Grug Crood (the voice of Nicolas Cage) and his family go in search of a better place to live. Leaving their cave, they journey to a land beyond a great wall. This paradise is lush, has plentiful food and something unexpected: the evolved Bettermans. Grug feels threatened by the modern family and their tree house with advanced inventions. A reluctant friendship develops and grows stronger when a menacing force outside their safe habitat becomes a problem. The future is at stake. Fans of 2013's "The Croods" won't be disappointed with this fun journey. First-time feature film director Joel Crawford (TV short "Trolls Holiday") finds a comfortable mix of action and humor within visually stunning animation. Children will be amused, but a couple of scary moments may frighten smaller kids. There's not much for adults beyond a harmless tongue-in-cheek joke or two (one involving a toilet).

Wade Wilson/Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) gathers a team for what he thinks is a worthy cause. The mission: save young mutant Russell (Julian Dennison) from the clutches of Nathan Summers/Cable (Josh Brolin), a cybernetic soldier from the future who wants to terminate the kid.

An International Court of Justice trial to convict vicious dictator Vladislav Dukhovich (Gary Oldman) needs the testimony of notorious hitman Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson). Interpol agent Amelia Roussel (Elodie Yung) has the dangerous job of getting Kincaid from England to the Hague trial. But there's a mole in her office and the only person she can trust is ex-boyfriend Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds), an expert bodyguard. The hitman and bodyguard are mortal enemies and must work together to overcome all of the obstacles in their way. Non-stop mayhem and witty banter give this familiar plot an entertaining lift. This movie rests squarely on the shoulders of its


Six scientists aboard the International Space Station discover a single-celled organism in a soil sample from Mars. What starts as joy at finding proof of life beyond Earth soon turns to terror when the tentacled entity, which they have named "Calvin", becomes dangerous. A fight for survival begins. Stellar effects and a fine cast make this outer space chiller a quality popcorn flick. It's a passable clone of "Alien". This isn't a spoiler, since the trailer makes the plot perfectly clear. After a slow start that gets all of the scientific facts of space station living out of the way, director Daniel Espinosa ("Safe House") cuts right to the chase. Many jumps, scares and a fair amount of
