10 reasons to get to the movies
1. ’21 Jump Street’
Based on the ’80s TV series, this one stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum as two less-than-slick police officers who go undercover in an attempt to bust a high school drug ring.
2. ‘Jeff Who Lives at Home’
By now, you’d think we’d be sick of seeing Jason Segel play a shorts-wearing manchild who lives in his mom’s basement. And yet, we’re not at all.
3. ‘John Carter’
In Disney’s adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ novels, Taylor Kitsch plays a Civil War vet who can’t catch a break: He ends up on Mars, gets taken prisoner by giants and then has to save the stranded princess.
4. ‘A Thousand Words’
Eddie Murphy angers a spiritual guru, inciting a curse — or a blessing, if that’s your bag, hippie — that gives him only 1,000 words to speak before he dies.
5. ‘Silent House’
Supposedly based on a true story, this horror flick tells the story of a father and daughter renovating an old cottage — until the weird noise coming from the top floor becomes their priority.
6. ‘Project X’
Shot in hand-held style by a cast of unknowns, this — like every great high school film — is about nerds conquering all by throwing a rager.
7. ‘Dr. Seuss’
The Lorax’ Zac Efron, Danny DeVito, Taylor Swift and Ed Helms voice the central characters of the beloved children’s story.
Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston star in this comedy about a couple who go in search of an unconventional life on a hippie commune.
9. ‘Good Deeds’
Tyler Perry writes, directs and stars in this story about a successful man, named Deeds, who is jolted out of his predictable existence by doing, you guessed it, good deeds.
Amanda Seyfried plays a woman haunted by the abduction of her sister two years prior.
