Weekend Movie Preview - Prisoners, Enough Said, & The Wizard of Oz

This weekend, a father takes justice into his own hands in "Prisoners," dancers battle it out for world supremacy in "Battle of the Year," and "The Wizard of Oz" gets three dimensional.


In Denis Villeneuve's highly praised thriller "Prisoners," two young girls go missing, propelling one father, played by Hugh Jackman, to spring into action, doing what the police won't. While Jake Gyllenhaal's Detective Loki pursues an array of leads, Jackman's Keller Dover pushes the boundaries of the law to find the kidnapper. After Villeneuve's shocking 2012 thriller "Incendies," expect the tension to get insanely high in "Prisoners" -- and watch out for a crazy twist.

Josh Holloway, from ABC's "Lost," plays former basketball coach Jason Blake, who helps prep a team of b-boys for the upcoming breakdancing world championship in "Battle of the Year." Among the dancers intent on winning back the trophy are hip-hop artist Chris Brown and Josh Peck, of Nickelodeon's "Drake and Josh."

The Victor Fleming classic that took us on the magical journey to Oz nearly 75 years ago returns to the big screen this weekend, and its shinier and grander than ever. Presented in 3D IMAX, "The Wizard of Oz" is a magnificent sight to see on a massively big screen. So tap your heels and get to the theater, because you don't want to miss Glinda's giant bubble in eye-popping 3D.

Also, in limited release this weekend:
  • Ron Howard's "Rush," about the 1970s Formula One rivals, opens in New York and Los Angeles before hitting theaters nationwide next week.
  • James Gandolfini (in one of his final film appearances) and Julia Louis-Dreyfus star in the Nicole Holofcener comedy "Enough Said" as two divorced, single parents in a relationship put to test by Gandolfini's ex.
  • The controversial topic of third trimester abortions is explored in the doc "After Tiller," which follows the few doctors who still perform the procedure.
  • Tim Robbins, Mark Ruffalo, Josh Gad, and pop songstress Pink play sex addicts in the comedy-drama "Thanks for Sharing," alongside Gwyneth Paltrow.
  • The first adaptation of a David Sedaris story comes to the big screen in the indie "C.O.G." starring Jonathan Groff ("Glee"). Sam Rockwell plays a hunter chased by criminals in "A Single Shot," Mickey Rourke narrates the doc "Generation Iron" about bodybuilders feature Arnold Schwarzenegger, and in the indie thriller "+1" an entire college party gets cloned.
