1. THE MAN WITH THE IRON FIST

Since his arrival in China's Jungle Village, the town's blacksmith has been forced by radical tribal factions to create elaborate tools of destruction. When the clans' brewing war boils over, the stranger channels an ancient energy to transform himself into a human weapon. As he fights alongside iconic heroes and against soulless villains, one man must harness this power to become savior of his adopted people.

Rating: R for bloody violence, strong sexuality, language and brief drug use

Cast: Russell Crowe . . . Jackknife, Jamie Chung . . . Lady Silk, Lucy Liu . . . Madame Blossom, Pam Grier, Dave Bautista . . . Brass Body.

2. TOYS IN THE ATTIC

Set in a magical world of toys and knick-knacks stored in the attic of a home in Prague. The setting for the film was inspired by the cultural and political contrast of the Cold War era and its impact on director Jiri Barta and the Czech Republic. The world of the attic is divided into the land of happy toys in the West and the Land of Evil in the East. The despotic Head of State rules over the Land of Evil with a band of sinister minions, insects and rotted vegetables. When the lovely Buttercup (Vivian Schilling) is kidnapped and held prisoner by The Head (Jiri Labus, with voice by Douglas Urbanski), it is up to her friends - a teddy bear (Forest Whitaker), a mechanical mouse (Joan Cusack) and marionette puppet (Cary Elwes) to cross the international boundary and attempt their daring rescue.

Cast: Forest Whitaker . . . Teddy (voice); Joan Cusack . . . Madam Curie (voice), Cary Elwes . . . Sir Handsome (voice); Vivian Schilling . . . Buttercup (voice); Marcelo Tubert . . . Laurent (voice). PG - for some mild peril and brief smoking.

3. SO UNDERCOVER

She may be a tough-as-nails, street-smart private investigator, but when Molly (Miley Cyrus) is drafted by the FBI to go undercover in a college sorority, she quickly discovers she's way out of her element amongst a sisterhood of snooty, high maintenance, materialistic college girls. But Molly accepts the top-secret mission in order to protect the daughter of a key witness in a case against the mob.

Cast: Miley Cyrus . . . Molly, Jeremy Piven, Mike O'Malley, Matthew Settle, Josh Bowman. Rating: PG-13, for some mature and suggestive content. Runtime: 1 hour, 34 minutes.
