Robots, astronauts and dancers. That’s what you’ve got at the multiplex this weekend. Ever wish you could sit in a chair all day and command a robot to do your chores and do drugs and engage in lascivious behavior? That’s the world of The Surrogates, and it’s all fine until murder happens and Bruce Willis has to figure it out. There’s another mystery, this one in space, that has a horrifying bent to it in Pandorum. Back in reality, we’ve got kids learning how to sing, dance and perform like superstars in Fame. Check them out below!
