How to Train Your Dragon

Gerard Butler, Jonah Hill and USC alumna America Ferrera lend their voices to the newest 3-D offering from DreamWorks Animation Studios. Taking place in a mythical world of dragons and vikings, the colorful film follows a young viking’s relationship with a dragon he is supposed to kill.


Director Noah Baumbach, the creative mind behind 2005’s Oscar-nominated The Squid and the Whale, enlists high-profile star Ben Stiller to play the titular lead in his newest dramedy. A down-on-his-luck New Yorker agrees to look after his brother’s house in Los Angeles and eventually falls for his personal assistant.

Hot Tub Time Machine

The title is pretty self-explanatory — a hot tub serves as a mystical time bending portal for four friends who travel back to the ’80s to change their fortunes. Comedic legend Chevy Chase returns to the big screen opposite John Cusack, allowing him to show off his comedic chops.

The Last Song

In theaters Mar. 31, Miley Cyrus sets out to prove her acting ability in the latest film based on a Nicholas Sparks novel. Greg Kinnear plays Cyrus’ father who seeks to rekindle his relationship with his Juilliard-caliber musician daughter on the basis of their shared love of song.
