Jersey Boys
Genre: Musical
Cast: John Lloyd Young, Erich Bergen, Vincent Piazza, Michael Lomenda and Christopher Walken
Director: Clint Eastwood
Rated: R

From director Clint Eastwood comes the big-screen version of the Tony Award-winning musical "Jersey Boys."

The film tells the story of four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey who came together to form the iconic 1960s rock group The Four Seasons. The story of their trials and triumphs are accompanied by the songs that influenced a generation, including "Sherry," "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Walk Like a Man," "Dawn," "Rag Doll," "Bye Bye Baby," "Who Loves You," and many more.

These classic hits are now being embraced by a new generation of fans through the stage musical, which has been running on Broadway for more than eight years and has also enjoyed successful tours around the globe.

Starring in the film, John Lloyd Young reprises his Tony Award-winning portrayal of the legendary lead singer of The Four Seasons, Frankie Valli. Erich Bergen stars as Bob Gaudio, who wrote or co-wrote all of the group's biggest hits. Michael Lomenda and Vincent Piazza star respectively as Nick Massi and Tommy DeVito, two original members of The Four Seasons. Oscar winner Christopher Walken stars as mobster Gyp DeCarlo.

The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.

The Rover
Genre: Thriller
Cast: Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson, Scoot McNairy, Susan Prior, Gillian Jones, Anthony Hayes and David Field
Director: David Michôd
Rated: R

Ten years after a collapse of the western economic system, Australia's mineral resources have drawn the desperate and dangerous to its shores.

With society in decline, the rule of law has disintegrated and life is cheap. Eric (Guy Pearce) is a cold and angry drifter who has left everything and everyone behind. When his car - his last possession - is stolen by a gang of desperate desert hustlers, Eric embarks on a ruthless mission to track them down. Along the way, he is forced into an unlikely relationship with Rey (Robert Pattinson), the naïve and injured younger brother of gang member Henry (Scoot McNairy) who has left Rey behind in the bloody aftermath of the gang's most recent robbery.

The Signal
Genre: Thriller
Cast: Brenton Thwaites, Olivia Cooke, Beau Knapp and Laurence Fishburne
Director: William Eubank
Rated: PG-14

Three college students on a road trip across the Southwest experience a detour: The tracking of a computer genius who has already hacked into MIT and exposed security faults.

The trio find themselves drawn to an eerily isolated area. Suddenly everything goes dark. When one of the students, Nic (Brenton Thwaites), regains consciousness, he is in a waking nightmare.

The Last Sentence
Genre: Drama
Cast: Jesper Christensen, Ulla Skoog, Pernilla August and Bjorn Granath
Director: Jan Troell
Not rated

Oscar-nominated director Jan Troell, one of Sweden's most acclaimed filmmakers, directs the biopic "The Last Sentence."

Set against the backdrop of WWII, "The Last Sentence" is based on the life of crusading journalist Torgny Segerstedt, editor-in-chief of one of Sweden's leading newspapers, highlighting his one-man battle against Nazism and his country's policy of appeasement to Hitler.

With Sweden caught between Nazi Germany and Stalin's Russia, the country's elites chose a policy of neutrality and compliance, with few daring to speak up against the evil around them. Among those who did, nobody was as loud and as uncompromising as Segerstedt (Jesper Christensen), one of the most prominent Swedish journalists of the 20th century. In the eyes of many of his countrymen, his pen was far more dangerous than the Nazi sword. Amidst the political turmoil of the era, Segerstedt's own personal life took a dramatic and scandalous turn as he entered into a very public affair with Maja Forssman, the Jewish wife of his close friend, the newspaper's publisher. Maja Forssman is played by Pernilla August.

Third Person
Genre: Drama
Cast: Liam Neeson, Mila Kunis, Adrien Brody, James Franco, Olivia Wilde, Maria Bello, Kim Basinger and Moran Atias
Director: Paul Haggis
Rated: R

"Third Person" tells three stories of love, passion, trust and betrayal, in a multi-strand story line reminiscent of Paul Haggis's earlier Oscar-winning film "Crash."

The tales play out in New York, Paris and Rome: three couples who appear to have nothing related butshare deep commonalities: lovers and estranged spouses, children lost and found.

Michael (Liam Neeson) is a Pulitzer Prize-winning fiction author who has holed himself up in a hotel suite in Paris to finish his latest book. He recently left his wife, Elaine (Kim Basinger), and is having a tempestuous affair with Anna (Olivia Wilde), an ambitious young journalist who wants to write and publish fiction.

At the same time, Scott (Adrien Brody), a shady American businessman, is in Italy to steal designs from fashion houses. Hating everything Italian, Scott wanders into the "Café Americano" in search of something familiar to eat. There, he meets Monika (Moran Atias), a beautiful Roma woman, who is about to be reunited with her young daughter. When the money she has saved to pay her daughter's smuggler is stolen, Scott feels compelled to help. They take off together for a dangerous town in Southern Italy, where Scott starts to suspect that he is the patsy in an elaborate con game.

Julia (Mila Kunis), an ex-soap opera actress, is caught in a custody battle for her 6 year old son with her ex-husband Rick (James Franco), a famous New York artist. With her support cut off and her legal costs ruinous, Julia is reduced to working as a maid in the same upscale boutique hotel where she was once a frequent guest. Julia's lawyer Theresa (Maria Bello) has secured Julia one final chance to change the court's mind and be reunited with the child she loves. Rick's current girlfriend Sam (Loan Chabanol) is a compassionate onlooker.
