Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

The popular chidren's book gets turned into a madcap comedy in which an unlucky boy transfers his bad juju to his hapless family for a single day. Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner are on mom and dad duty. There isn't a lot of depth to be found here--mostly just a string of chaotic set-pieces--but director Miguel Arteta (Chuck & Buck, The Good Girl) adds just enough honest-to-goodness social awkwardness to give it a bit of gravity. 81 minutes PG.

Big Hero 6

When Disney took over Marvel, everyone wondered what that mash-up would look like. Now we know. Based (quietly) on the Marvel comic of the same name, this sci-fi cartoon feels like a Disneyfied (in the best sense) take on the superhero genre. Tech-savvy teenager Hiro lives in futuristic San Fransokyo with his brother and aunt. But when his bro is murdered and his greatest invention stolen, Hiro teams up with an inflatable robot named Baymax and a group of self-proclaimed "science nerds" to get revenge on the masked villain responsible. The story is your standard superhero origin tale. But the sci-fi flourishes are well conceived, and the unflappably kindhearted Baymax is easily the most lovable character of the year. 108 minutes PG.

Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)

Alejandro González Iñárritu (Babel, 21 Grams) directs Michael Keaton (Batman) in this winkingly meta farce about a washed-up action movie star who tries to mount a comeback on Broadway. Shot in what looks like a single, breathless take, the film swoops and soars through the corridors of a venerable Broadway theater watching its manic, self-loathing, hallucination-prone protagonist face crisis after crisis. Dark and funny, cynical and empathetic, this oddly experimental gem offers viewers this year's most original cinematic vision. 119 minutes R.

Dumb and Dumber To

Twenty years later moronic friends Lloyd (Jim Carrey) and Harry (Jeff Daniels) reunite for a cross-country road trip. Harry's searching for the daughter he never knew, but it's really just an excuse for our two characters to engage in more of their patented clueless idiocy. 109 minutes PG-13.

The Equalizer

The popular, but mostly forgotten 1980s TV series starring Edward Woodward as an elderly, ass-kicking former intelligence agent gets a reboot courtesy of actor Denzel Washington and director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Olympus Has Fallen). Washington is a tough guy with a mysterious past who volunteers to protect a young girl (Chloë Grace Moretz, Kick-Ass) from ultra-violent Russian mobsters. 131 minutes R.

Fury

Who doesn't love a good tank movie? We haven't had a good tank movie in a long time. Tanks are cool. Brad Pitt stars as a veteran Sherman tank commander leading a five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines toward the end of World War II. Outnumbered, outgunned and limping along in a broken war machine, our heroes face overwhelming odds. Gritty, bloody and brutally paced, this down-in-the-trenches look at life during wartime mixes exaggerated movie violence and "ugly truth" history in almost equal measure. 134 minutes R.

Gone Girl

David Fincher (Fight Club, Se7en) directs this gripping adaptation of Gillian Flynn's twisty crime novel about a man who comes under intense media scrutiny after his wife disappears. Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Tyler Perry and Neil Patrick Harris star. 148 minutes R.

The Homesman

Following up on his feature directing debut, The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, Tommy Lee Jones helms and stars in this alternately brutal, comic and sentimental Western. Lee plays a cantankerous drifter hired by a pious frontierswoman (Hilary Swank) to transport a trio of shell-shocked pioneer women back east. 122 minutes R.

Horrible Bosses 2

Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis return for more criminal hijinks--but this time around, they appear to be the horrible bosses. Unable to get their new business off the ground thanks to a slick investor, the trio plot a harebrained kidnapping scheme. Jennifer Aniston and Kevin Spacey drop by to help. 108 minutes R.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay--Part 1

Hollywood is sick of trilogies. That's only three movies' worth of profits. The cool thing now is to take the final book in a trilogy and split it in two different movies (like The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn--Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn--Part 2). So apparently Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) has destroyed the Hunger Games. She's hiding out, trying to rescue her boyfriend (Josh Hutcherson) from evil government forces when she gets a call from the rebel leader (Julianne Moore) asking her to become the face of the rebellion. It beats being the face of L'Oreal. ... And now you only have an entire year to wait until the second half of the story. 123 minutes PG-13.

Interstellar

Earth is dying, and it's up to intrepid astronaut Matthew McConaughey to find mankind a new planet to colonize. The clock is ticking, man, hurry up! Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight, Inception) directs this grand, galaxy-spanning space adventure--which manages to be both artistically dreamy and science-geeky smart. Ther are plenty of moments when it swings too far in both directions--but it's still a sight to behold on the big screen. 169 minutes PG-13.

The Judge

Robert Downey Jr. is a big-city lawyer recalled to his childhood home to defend his estranged father (Robert Duvall), a local judge, on charges of murder. Downey and Duvall chew scenery at an impressive rate, but the low-grade John Grisham-wannabe script is short on logic, heavy on melodrama. 114 minutes R.

Nightcrawler

Jake Gyllenhaal (Donnie Darko, Brokeback Mountain) stars in this grim crime thriller-cum-satire as a sleazy hustler who worms his way into the underground world of freelance crime reporting. Armed with a video camera and a total lack of ethics, he prowls LA's dark streets looking for any stories that bleed so he can sell them to content-hungry local networks. The film has a lot of scathing things to say about today's voyeuristic culture, but it's also a tense, Taxi Driver-ish thriller. 117 minutes R.

Ouija

Hasbro and Universal Pictures have already made Transformers and Battleship into mind-numbing multimillion-dollar action movies. So why not turn Ouija into a cheap ghost drama? A bunch of teens use an "ancient spirit board" to "awaken the dark powers." You know what happens next. 90 minutes PG-13.

Following cameos in the Madagascar films and a successful TV series, the wannabe-super-spy penguins get their own feature spin-off. This CGI toon shows audiences how dimwitted waterfowl Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private got their start in the global espionage biz. 92 minutes PG.

An archaeological team attempts to unlock the secrets of a lost pyramid, only to find themselves hunted by an insidious mummy. As one does. Denis O'Hare ("American Horror Story: Freakshow") and Ashley Hinshaw ("True Blood") star. This inexpensive, found-footage-style thriller marks the directing debut of the French dude who wrote Alexandre Aja's High Tension and The Hills Have Eyes. 89 minutes R.

St. Vincent

Newly divorced Maggie (Melissa McCarthy) moves with her young son next door to cranky old misanthrope Vincent (Bill Murray). Before long, the drinking, gambling war vet is baby-sitting her bullied, father-figure-seeking son. We've seen this kind of "innocent kid melts the heart of a mean, old codger" plenty of times before. But the cast really gives it their all, helping this prickly tragicomedy rise above the schmaltz. 102 minutes PG-13.

The Theory of Everything

'Tis the season for high-toned biopics. Eddie Redmayne (The Pillars of the Earth, Les Misérables) stars as world-famous physicist Stephen Hawking. This inspirational romantic drama concentrates on Hawking's pre-talking-wheelchair relationship with his college girlfriend-cum-wife Jane (Felicity Jones, Like Crazy). It's beautifully performed and perfectly bittersweet, but occasionally feels too expertly crafted for Academy Award appeal. 123 minutes Unrated.

A shy young musician (Miles Teller from The Spectacular Now) dreams of becoming a world-famous jazz drummer. Attending a prestigious New York music academy, he gets the opportunity to learn from the school's most infamous instructor (J.K. Simmons from "Oz"). What follows is the musical equivalent of the training camp sequence from Full Metal Jacket. Simmons is perfect as the sadistic taskmaster, but Teller matches him beat-for-beat as the determined student. 107 minutes R.
