A look at what's new in theaters this weekend.

Zootopia (PG, Animated, Starring Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Shakira, Idris Elba, J.K. Simmons) - The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it's a melting pot where animals from every environment live together - a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn't so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde, to solve the mystery.

{{a href="event-2"}}London Has Fallen{{/a}} (R, Action, Starring Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Alon Moni Aboutboul, Angela Bassett) - The sequel to the worldwide smash hit Olympus Has Fallen begins in London, where the British Prime Minister has passed away under mysterious circumstances. His funeral is a must-attend event for leaders of the western world. But what starts out as the most protected event on earth, turns into a deadly plot to kill the world's most powerful leaders, devastate every known landmark in the British capital, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. Only three people have any hope of stopping it: the President of the United States, his formidable secret service head, and an English MI-6 agent who rightly trusts no one.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (R, Comedy, Starring Tina Fey, Margot Robbie, Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Josh Charles) - When reporter Kim Barker's life needs something more, she decides to 'shake it all up' by taking an assignment in a war zone. There, in the midst of chaos, she finds the strength she never knew she had. Sometimes it takes saying 'WTF' to find the life you were always destined to have.
