Here’s what’s opening in theaters nationwide this weekend – two movies that couldn’t be more different. We’ve got the first in a trio of films coming out this year focusing around a team of rough-and-tumble pseudo-military badasses out to right wrongs with The Losers, and then there’s Jennifer Lopez quietly hoping we’ll let her be a movie star again in her rom-com The Back-Up Plan. That’s your call, America. Take a closer look at both films below.


The Losers

Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Idris Elba, Columbus Short, Chris Evans and Oscar Jaenada are a band of soldiers who get betrayed on a mission by a high-level CIA operative named Max (Jason Patric), but manage to secretly survive the doublecross. When a mysterious new player (Zoe Saldana) enters their revenge game and offers them Max’s head on a platter, these guys have to figure out what her personal agenda is while engineering their payback.

Then, wouldn’t you know it, she meets Alex O’Loughlin, the right guy for her! How’s she going to explain to him that she’s pregnant without scaring him away?
