Opening Aug. 9

Elysium
It’s 2154 and life is great. No disease, no war, no economic struggle. That is, if you’re filthy rich enough to live on the super high-class space station Elysium. Otherwise, you’re stuck on Earth, which is literally crumbling and ridden with poverty and crime. Who would expect that Max Da Costa (Matt Damon), an earthbound ex-convict, would be the one to attempt to unify the two fiercely contrasting worlds of existence? Well, he won’t if Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) has anything to say about it.

We’re the Millers
They’re just your typical American family on a vacation to Mexico, except well ... they’re not. David Burke (Jason Sudeikis) is a dealer on a mission to get two tons of weed from Mexico. His plan?Disguise his endeavor as an innocent family getaway by hiring a stripper (Jennifer Aniston), a homeless teenage delinquent (Emma Roberts) and the geeky boy next door (Will Poulter) to pretend to be his big happy family as they travel across the border.

Opening Aug. 16

Kick-Ass 2
Kick-Ass and Hit Girl are back, this time as ... normal teenagers? Yep, these self-made superheroes have surrendered their spandex and sweet names in exchange for new lives as high schoolers Dave (Aaron Taylor Johnson) and Mindy (Chloë Grace Moretz). But when trouble arises in the form of super villain The Mother F%&*^R and his Evil League, these amateurs might have to put their tights back on and kick some serious ass.

Opening Aug. 23

The World’s End
We’ve seen them fight off zombies in Shaun of the Dead and fight off gruesome village crime in Hot Fuzz. Now Britain’s most notable tag team, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have returned to the screen to battle an army of robots. Gary (Pegg), Andy (Frost) and their gaggle of friends reunite after 20 years and return to their hometown to reattempt the 12-pub crawl from their teenage years. The only thing standing in their way of the final pub on the list, The World’s End, is an army of robots.

You’re Next
When there’s a big family reunion in a mansion in the middle of the forest, only one thing can happen: axe murderers attacking right in the middle of dinner. No one in the Davison family is safe, and there is no saying who will live to see the dawn of day when this bloodbath is finally over.
