I Love You, Man
Paul Rudd is a “girlfriend guy” who realizes that he doesn’t have a best man for his wedding, so ventures off in search of a man-friend, which he finds in Jason Segel.


The Class
This Oscar-nominee for Best Foreign Film tells the story of a teacher dealing with his troublesome students in a rough Parisian school, unafraid to push them hard to get them motivated.


Alien Trespass
A fun, campy take on old pulpy 1950s science-fiction movies tells the story of a flying saucer crashing in a California mountain, bearing an alien out to destroy all life. Only local astronomer Ted (Eric McCormack), possessed by a benevolent alien named Urp, can save his town from certain disaster. Also starring Dan Lauria and Robert Patrick.


17 Again
Matthew Perry is a sullen man who is bitter about his life choices and the fact that getting his girlfriend pregnant in high school derailed the basketball career he dreamed about, and now his wife (Leslie Mann) is divorcing him because he can’t get over himself. But when a magical janitor (Brian Doyle Murray) casts a spell on him to turn him into his younger self (Zac Efron), he winds up going to school with his kids (Michelle Trachtenberg, Sterling Knight) and finds a new perspective on his own life – and tries to hook up his nerdy friend (Thomas Lennon) with the school principal (Melora Hardin) in the process.


Gigantic
Paul Dano stars as a listless mattress salesman and the afterthought child of his family who falls for a woman (Zooey Deschanel) who falls asleep in his store one day. Also starring John Goodman, Ed Asner, Jane Alexander and Zach Galifianakis.


Paris 36
An eye-popping visual spectacle set in 1936 Paris, three friends stage an elaborate musical production to try and save their local theater.
