  • O Brother, Where Art Thou? (PG-13)

    In the late 21st century, after space invaders have forced mankind to push the button, a lonely security guard (Tom Cruise) patrols an evacuated earth in a whiz-bang spacecraft that can do backflips in mid-air; when he recovers a space coffin containing a woman in suspended animation (Olga Kurylenko), he learns more about his mission than he'd like to know. more...

  • Ocean's 8 (PG-13)

    Despite the large ensemble casts, Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's Eleven franchise rested on the rascally comedic interplay of George Clooney and Brad Pitt as the heist ringleaders; Sandra Bullock keeps up her end of the bargain in this gender-inverted reboot, but icy Cate Blanchett seems lost as her criminal sidekick. more...
  • Ocean's Eleven (PG-13)
