Starring: Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin,

The Plot: In order to save the life of his friend and partner, Agent J of the “Men In Black” travels back in time to change the past while accompanied by a younger version of Agent K.

 The Final Word: Believe it or not, it’s been a decade since Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones slipped on their trademark black suits and hit cinemas worldwide. Now the pair is back with new addition Josh Brolin, who plays a dead-on younger version of Jones’ Agent K. With “The Avengers” beginning to come back to Earth, audiences are looking for that next big tent-pole based on material they are familiar with and this will more than likely be it.

Starring: Devin Kelley, Jonathan Sadowski, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal,
Olivia Taylor Dudley, Jesse McCartney, Nathan Philips &Dimitri Diatchenko
Directed by Brad Parker for distribution by Warner Brothers

The Plot: Six tourists looking for a thrill hire an “extreme” tour guide who takes them to the abandoned city of Pripyat and the remnants of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor, where they quickly realize they aren’t the only ones there!

 The Final Word: Found footage films have made a major comeback as of late, but Oren Peli, who was heavily responsible for that resurgence, is ready to try something different. The “Paranormal Activity” director is going in a new direction with this thriller/horror/mystery flick that has the potential to be the sleeper surprise of the summer.
