The Giver (Drama/Fantasy, PG-13, Starring Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Alexander Skarsgård, Katie Holmes, Odeya Rush)

The haunting story of The Giver centers on Jonas, a young man who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment.

With this newfound power of knowledge, he realizes that the stakes are higher than imagined - a matter of life and death for himself and those he loves most. At extreme odds, Jonas knows that he must escape their world to protect them all - a challenge that no one has ever succeeded at before.

The Best Of Me (Drama/Romance, PG-13, Starring Michelle Monaghan, James Marsden, Liana Liberato, Luke Bracey, Sebastian Arcelus)

The story of Dawson and Amanda, two former high school sweethearts who find themselves reunited after 20 years apart, when they return to their small town for the funeral of the beloved friend. Their bittersweet reunion reignites the love they've never forgotten, but soon they discover the forces that drove them apart twenty years ago live on, posing even more serious threats today. Spanning decades, this epic love story captures the enduring power of our first true love, and the wrenching choices we face when confronted with elusive second chances.
