New Movies Opening This Week - Friday, March 21 2014

So what's new coming to theaters this Friday?  Glad you asked.  We have hand puppets, another YA book series hitting theaters this week.

Quickie Box Office Look:

Also, if you've been watching the Box Office, Mr. Peabody, with little or no competition, took the weekend last weekend, pulling in over $21M while 300:Rise of an Empire was nipping on its tail with $19M.

Jesse's, I mean Aaron Paul's first foray onto the silver screen since Breaking Bad sort of broke up upon reentry to the box office, only pulling in just under $18M and Liam Neeson's Non-Stop is slowing to a stop, with only $10M.

New Movies Opening This Week - March 21

Muppets Most Wanted (2014)

While on a grand world tour, The Muppets find themselves wrapped into an European jewel-heist caper headed by a Kermit the Frog look-alike and his dastardly sidekick.

With on more family film to add to the collective, that can only be a good thing, since there aren't enough family films out there.

Divergent (2014)

PG-13; 139 min

In a world divided by factions based on virtues, Tris learns she's Divergent and won't fit in. When she discovers a plot to destroy Divergents, Tris and the mysterious Four must find out what makes Divergents dangerous before it's too late.

Director: Neil Burger
Stars:    Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Kate Winslet, Jai Courtney

PG-13 seems mild and threatens to squelch this movie, but I think book fans will enjoy it.  To be honest, the book barely broke that same rating.
