After Earth Real-life father and son Will and Jaden Smith play a sci-fi father and son stranded on the planet in this postapocalyptic parable from M. Night Shyamalan. PG-13 Now You See Me Who better to stage an elaborate heist than a slick band of Vegas illusionists? Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, and Woody Harrelson pull off the sleight-of-hand, while Michael Caine, Mélanie Laurent, Morgan Freeman, and Mark Ruffalo run around in pursuit, or in cahoots, with the prestidigitators.

10 Cloverfield Lane From producer J.J. Abrams and Philly native Dan Trachtenberg, a wickedly clever nightmare entertainment (and spiritual offspring of 2008's Cloverfield ) with Mary Elizabeth Winstead as a woman who wakes up shackled in some weird guy's underground bunker. John Goodman is the captor, John Gallagher Jr. is a fellow, um, guest, and the world outside ain't what it used to be. PG-13 Embrace of the Serpent Ciro Guerra's profoundly beautiful black-and-white film, set in the infinite forests of Colombia, follows two explorers - German ethnographer Theodor Koch-Grunberg in 1909 and American biologist Richard Evans Schultes in 1940 - as each encounters a shaman, the last of his tribe, in the quest for a rare plant.
