Posted September 24, 2015

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

The Green Inferno (R, Horror, Starring Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Sky Ferreira, Nicolás Martínez, Kirby Bliss Blanton) - This is the story of a group of student activists who travel from New York City to the Amazon to save the rainforest. However, once they arrive in this vast green landscape, they soon discover that they are not alone...and that no good deed goes unpunished.

Hotel Transylvania 2 (PG, Animated, Starring Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Kevin James, Fran Drescher) - Everything seems to be changing for the better at Hotel Transylvania... Dracula's rigid monster-only hotel policy has finally relaxed, opening up its doors to human guests. But behind closed coffins, Drac is worried that his adorable half-human, half-vampire grandson, Dennis, isn't showing signs of being a vampire. So while Mavis is busy visiting her human in-laws with Johnny - and in for a major cultural shock of her own - "Vampa" Drac enlists his friends Frank, Murray, Wayne and Griffin to put Dennis through a "monster-in-training" boot camp. But little do they know that Drac's grumpy and very old, old, old school dad Vlad is about to pay a family visit to the hotel. And when Vlad finds out that his great-grandson is not a pure blood - and humans are now welcome at Hotel Transylvania - things are going to get batty!

The Intern (PG-13, Comedy, Starring Robert De Niro, Anne Hathaway, Rene Russo, Anders Holm, Adam Devine) - Ben Whittaker, a retired widower in his 70s, answers an advertisement seeking senior interns at a Brooklyn startup and soon finds himself in the middle of a hurricane created by young company chief Jules Ostin, whose online clothing business, which she started in her kitchen a year and a half ago, has taken off and put her in charge of 250 employees. Jules is initially skeptical of bringing an old-timer like Ben into the mix, especially since Jules is juggling her business with a demanding home life that includes husband Matt and daughter Paige. But Ben proves invaluable and wins over Jules with his hard-earned wisdom and compassion, providing Jules with much-needed guidance, as well as a trusty friend, as she navigates life's ups and downs.

Sicario (R, Drama, Starring Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Donovan) - In Mexico, sicario means hitman. In the lawless border area stretching between the U.S. and Mexico, an idealistic FBI agent is enlisted by an elite government task force official to aid in the escalating war against drugs. Led by an enigmatic consultant with a questionable past, the team sets out on a clandestine journey forcing Kate to question everything that she believes in order to survive.
