The Bourne Legacy – dir. Tony Gilroy, starring Rachael Weisz, Jeremy Renner and Edward Norton. Rated PG-13
After Jason Bourne escaped capture and infiltrated the CIA, the directors decide it’s time to burn all of the deep cover field agents and bury the program. Aaron Cross luckily escapes a drone strike, but he has to find a way to acquire the secret anti-viral medication keeping him alive. Cross is one of six agents in a program called Outcome. Unlike the CIA’s Treadstone that Jason Bourne was a part of, Outcome agents have been developed and trained for use by the Department of Defense. More than assassins, Outcome agents are designed for use in isolated, high-risk, long-term intelligence assignments.
Cross finds a virologist who also managed to escape a sleeper agent put in place to assassinate all the medical personnel working on the Outcome program. Together they must avoid capture from a very wired CIA net and escape to obscurity before it all comes crashing down. The clock is ticking.

Dredd – dir. Pete Davis, starring Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby. Rated R
The future America is an irradiated wasteland. On its east coast, running from Boston to Washington D.C., lies Mega City One – a vast, violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets. The only force of order lies with the urban cops called “Judges” who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and instant executioner. Known and feared throughout the city, Dredd is the ultimate Judge, faced with ridding the city of its latest scourge – a dangerous drug epidemic that has users of “Slo-Mo” experiencing reality at a fraction of its normal speed.
A heinous crime calls Judge Dredd and his prodigy to a neighborhood where fellow Judges rarely dare to venture – a 200-story vertical slum controlled by prostitute-turned-drug-lord Ma-Ma and her ruthless clan. When they capture one of the clan’s inner circle, Ma-Ma overtakes the compound’s control center and wages a dirty, vicious war against the Judges that proves she will stop at nothing to protect her empire.

Ted – dir. Seth McFarlane, starring Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis and Joe McHale. Rated R
The mind behind Family Guy brings you a metric ton of dirty jokes and depravity.
John Bennett is a grown man whose simple childhood wish brought his cherished teddy bear to life. Almost 30 years later, the fairy tale is very much over. Ted is reluctant to leave John’s side to the increasing annoyance of John’s only-so-patient girlfriend, Lori Collins. Though Lori’s displeasure with John is exacerbated by his dead-end career and days spent smoking weed and drinking beers with Ted, she’s not the one who is the most frustrated with him.
As John struggles to figure out a way to navigate this thing called adulthood, it will take the unexpected help of his boyhood toy to make the leap from man-child to a grown-ass man.

Hatfields & McCoys – dir. Kevin Reynolds, starring Bill Paxton, Kevin Costner, Tom Berenger. Rated NR
It’s a well-known fact that hillbillys love to shoot bullets at animals, cans and people. Some hillbillys have a whole lot of bullets.
Bonded by their oath to the same flag, two confederate soldiers, “Devil” Anse Hatfield and Randall McCoy, return home seeking peace after tireless months of battle. Their expectations are quickly shattered when a murder based on misunderstandings and illicit love affair trigger warfare between former comrades and their clans.
This historic feud teeters on the brink of an all-out civil war as friends and neighbors join opposing sides in a rivalry that would ultimately shape American History.

The Possession – dir. Ole Bornedal, starring Jeffery Dean Morgan, Kyra Sedgewick. Rated PG-13
Based on a true story (ehhhhhh, kinda), a family must unite in order to survive the wrath of an unspeakable evil. Clyde and Stephanie Brenek see little cause for alarm when their youngest daughter, Em, becomes oddly obsessed with an antique wooden box she purchased at a yard sale. But as Em’s behavior becomes increasingly erratic, the couple fears the presence of a malevolent force in their midst, only to discover that the box was built to contain a dibbuk, a dislocated spirit that inhabits and ultimately devours its human host.
The lesson here is to never, ever order a ghost in a box from Ebay because you just might get one. They aren’t cheap, either.
