  • The Lifeguard

The Lifeguard
About to turn 30 and fed up with her life, a New York reporter (Kristen Bell) moves back in with her parents in the ’burbs, returns to her old lifeguard job and spends the summer getting high and screwing teen boys. So what’s the problem? (Screen Media)

The Purge
In the otherwise peaceful year 2022, a San Francisco family (including Lena Headey and Ethan Hawke) fights to survive the brutal Purge, an annual 12-hour event wherein all crime is legal and Ethan Hawke lands an acting gig. (Universal)

After Earth
A legendary warrior (the legendary—just ask him—Will Smith) and his teen son (Jaden Smith) find themselves stranded on dumb ol’ Earth 1,000 years after humans escaped the planet, facing hostile animals, aliens and ticket-buying audiences. (Sony)

Chucky: The Complete Collection
Child’s Play, Child’s Play 2, Child’s Play 3, Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky and Curse of Chucky, finally all together in a single box set! Didya know that Katherine Heigl was in 1998’s Bride of Chucky, the series’ pinnacle? True. (Universal)

The Hangover Part III
The Wolfpack (Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and that other guy) is back in the third installment that answers the burning questions “Will the checks clear?” and “Zach can just carry this thing, right?” (Warner Bros.)
