A look at what's new in theaters this week.
God's Not Dead 2 (PG, Drama, Starring Melissa Joan Hart, Jesse Metcalfe, Ernie Hudson, David A.R. White, Hayley Orrantia) - Welcome back to Hope Springs - home not only of Hadleigh University, but also Martin Luther King Jr. High School, where beloved teacher Grace Wesley helps students understand and enjoy history. Her love of teaching, her love for her students, and her love of life all come from the same place: her love of Christ. So when Brooke, a hurting student grieving the loss of her brother, reaches out to Grace, their coffee-shop conversation naturally leads to Grace sharing the hope she finds in Christ. When Brooke later asks an honest question about Jesus in the classroom, Grace's reasoned response lands her in big trouble-almost before she even finishes giving her answer. With the principal and superintendent joining forces with a zealous civil liberties group, Grace faces an epic court case that could cost her the career she loves and expel God from the classroom-and the public square-once and for all!
Meet the Blacks (R, Comedy, Starring Zulay Henao, Mike Tyson, Mike Epps, Andrew Bachelor, Charlie Murphy) - A man (Mike Epps) moves his family to Beverly Hills, Calif., on the same day when all crime becomes legal for a 12-hour period.
