Super heroes, animated sheep and Meryl Streep all waiting in the theaters for you this weekend.
Fantastic Four – R
Four young outsiders teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe which alters their physical form in shocking ways. The four must learn to harness their new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.
Critics Consensus From Rotten Tomatoes: Dull and downbeat, this Fantastic Four proves a woefully misguided attempt to translate a classic comic series without the humor, joy, or colorful thrills that made it great.
Ricki and the Flash – PG-13
A musician who gave up everything for her dream of rock-and-roll stardom returns home, looking to make things right with her family.
Critics Consensus from Rotten Tomatoes: Meryl Streep’s outstanding work helps Ricki and the Flash overcome its inconsistent tone and fairly predictable premise.
Shaun the Sheep – PG
Animated – When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. A mix up with the Farmer, a caravan and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it’s up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to the green grass of home.
Critics Consensus from Rotten Tomatoes: Warm, funny, and brilliantly animated, Shaun the Sheep is yet another stop-motion jewel in Aardman’s family-friendly crown.
