Dusty Crophopper returns in Disney sequel Planes: Fire & Rescue. A number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release.
Sex Tape Genre: Comedy Cast: Cameron Diaz, Jason Segel, Rob Corddry, Ellie Kemper and Rob Lowe Director: Jake Kasdan Rated: R
Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) are a married couple still very much in love, but 10 years and two kids have cooled the passion.
To get it back, they decide - why not? - to make a video of themselves trying out every position in "The Joy of Sex" in one marathon three-hour session. It seems like a great idea, until they discover that their most private video has gone public. In a panic, they begin a wild night of adventure - tracking down leads, roping in friends, duping Annie's boss - all to reclaim their video, their reputation, their sanity, and, most importantly, their marriage.

"Planes: Fire & Rescue" is a new adventure-comedy about second chances, featuring a dynamic crew of elite firefighting aircraft devoted to protecting historic Piston Peak National Park from a raging wildfire.
When world-famous air racer Dusty (voice of Dane Cook) learns that his engine is damaged and he may never race again, he must shift gears and is launched into the world of aerial firefighting.

Together, the fearless team battles a massive wildfire and Dusty learns what it takes to become a true hero.

"Persecuted" tells the story of a modern-day evangelist named John Luther, played by James Remar.
Luther is the last hold out for a national endorsement to make sweeping reform in freedom of speech that would compel religious leaders to provide equal time to those of other faiths as a U.S. Senator, portrayed by Oscar-nominated actor Bruce Davison, and his political allies create a sinister plan of denial and scandal to frame John Luther for murder. Suddenly his once normal life is turned upside down as he becomes a fugitive vowing to expose those responsible. It is a mission that brings him face-to-face with the coming storm of persecution that will threaten the moral ethics and freedoms of America.
