A group of tourists find themselves trapped at an obscure Mayan temple in Dreamworks Pictures and Spyglass Entertainment’s “The Ruins.”
PINELLAS COUNTY – A number of new movie releases will hit theaters on April 4, including the following:

“Leatherheads” – Universal Pictures will present “Leatherheads,” starring George Clooney and Renee Zellweger.

Set in 1925, a charming football player – Dodge Connolly (Clooney) capitalizes on his war hero status to try to lead his team from bar-room brawls to stadiums filled with cheering fans. When the league loses their sponsor and face collapse, Connolly convinces college football star Carter Rutherford (John Krasinski) to join the team.

Meanwhile, Lexie Littleton, a cub journalist, is determined to unravel Connolly’s war tales. While she investigates, Connolly and Rutherford become rivals for her affection. Rated PG-13.

“Nim’s Island” – Summit Entertainment will present “Nim’s Island,” directed by Mark Levine and Jennifer Flackett and starring Jodie Foster and Abigail Breslin.

Based on the novel by Wendy Orr, “Nim’s Island” centers on a magical place ruled by a young girl’s imagination. Nim (Breslin) lives on a tropical island where she assists her father with marine research. She also reads books – particularly books about Alex Rover, the world’s greatest adventurer.

When her father disappears, a twist of fate brings Nim together (via computer) with the author of the Alex Rover novels. The author, Alexandra (Foster), turns out to be a reclusive women living in the big city. Together, Alexandra and Nim stage a rescue and become involved in a real adventure. Rated PG.

“The Ruins” – Based on the book by Scott Smith, Dreamworks Pictures and Spyglass Entertainment present the Red Hour production of “The Ruins.”

As the end of their vacation nears, a group of friends abandons the beautiful beaches and warm waters that lure American tourists annually in favor of a trek through the Mexican jungle in search of Mayan ruins. Upon reaching the archeological site, they are driven to the top of a stone step pyramid and plunged into a struggle for survival against hidden horrors. Starring Jonathan Tucker, Jena Malone, Shawn Ashmore, Laura Ramsey and Joe Anderson. Rated R.

“Shine a Light” – Paramount Classics in association with Concert Productions International and Shagri-La Entertainment will present the Martin Scorsese film “Shine a Light.”

Filmed at the Beacon Theatre in New York City in 2006, Scorsese reportedly assembled an army of master cinematographers to document the “raw energy” of rock ’n’ roll icons the Rolling Stones. The idea for the film came from Stones’ frontman Mick Jagger. Once the idea took hold, the band began considering who they wanted to direct it.

“We started to think, if we’re going to do this, we might as well start with a really top-flight filmmaker,” Jagger says in the film’s production notes. He describes Scorsese as the most talented American film director. “It’s good to start at the top.”

Rated PG-13.
