New In Theaters - March 30, 2012

Starring: Sam Worthington, Rosamund Pike, Bill Nighy, Edgar Ramírez,
Toby Kebbell, Danny Huston, Ralph Fiennes & Liam Neeson
Directed by Jonathan Liebesman for distribution by Warner Brothers

The Plot: Following his epic defeat of the mythical Kraken, the son of Zeus is forced out of retirement when a battle for power breaks out among his celestial family and threatens civilization.

The Final Word: Despite being critically savaged for its poor use of 3D, the original “Clash Of The Titans” reboot did quite well for itself during its 2010 run. Now the sequel reunites most of the original cast to take another shot at box office supremacy, bad 3D and all! Expect this one to do just as well.

Starring: Lily Collins, Julia Roberts, Armie Hammer, Nathan Lane,
Mare Winningham, Danny Woodburn & Sean Bean
Directed by Tarsem Singhfor distribution by Relativity Media

The Plot: A new live-action lighter take on the classic fairy tale “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.”

The Final Word: A few years ago an internal studio battle broke out between Relativity Media and Universal over competing “Snow White” projects. While each company was jockeying to have their film out first, each ironically lost the fight when ABC’s “Once Upon A Time,” debuted this year and seemingly stole the thunder of both films. Still both projects will see the light of day with the Julia Roberts led “Mirror, Mirror,” ultimately going first and the darker Kristen Stewart starring “Snow White and the Huntstman,” slotted in June. While the jury’s still out on which will do better, history has shown in most cases both films underperform.
