The Hero of Color City

Opens Friday, Oct 3, 2014 Synopsis: Exodus Film Group presents this computer-animated children's film starring the voices of Christina Ricci, Rosie Perez, Craig Ferguson, and Wayne Brady. Ben is a young boy who loves to color; little does he realize his beloved crayons lead a secret life of excitement and adventure. Every night, when the sun goes down, Ben's crayons pay a visit to Color City, a whimsical world of breathtaking beauty. Trouble arises, however, when Ben falls asleep one night, and Yellow gets left behind by her fellow crayons. In her attempt to catch up with them, Yellow accidentally stirs an unfinished sketch of the monstrous King Scrawl and his malevolent henchman Gnat. Before they can be stopped, the diabolical duo have made their way to Color City, and staked their claim on the magical Rainbow Waterfall. Now, if Yellow and her friends don't act fast, all of Color City's glorious hues will soon fade. Fortunately for the citizens of this enchanted land, courageous Yellow is about to learn that if she believes in herself, anything is possible - even defeating a formidable foe like the dreaded King Scrawl. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi Cast: Christina Ricci, Rosie Perez, Craig Ferguson, Wayne Brady, Arsenio Hall Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

Million Dollar Arm

Opens Friday, May 16, 2014 Synopsis: Inspired by a true story, this sports drama from director Craig Gillespie and screenwriter Thomas McCarthy follows the journey of an aging American sports agent (Jon Hamm) who attempts to save his failing business by traveling to India and recruiting a cricket pitcher to play in the Major Leagues. Fearing that the recruitment agency he owns with partner Aash (Aasif Mandvi) is about to go bust, sports agent J.B. Bernstein (Hamm) has a flash of inspiration while watching a game of Indian cricket on television: Why search for the next pitching sensation in America, where everyone else is looking, when you can find one in India? Convinced that he's onto something big, J.B. travels to Mumbai with a sharp-eyed veteran scout (Alan Arkin) and announces a nationwide contest to find India's best bowler (the pitcher in cricket). Dubbed the "Million Dollar Arm" competition, it quickly draws in 40,000 hopeful athletes in search of their big break. When 18-year-old finalists Rinku (Suraj Sharma) and Dinesh (Madhur Mittal) come out on top, J.B. arranges for them to train under famed pitching coach Tom House (Bill Paxton) until they're ready to join the big leagues. Although at first the two talented pitchers experience a serious case of culture shock, in time they begin to adjust to American customs, and their growing relationship with J.B. takes on a familial tone, offering the self-absorbed agent an important life lesson in the power of commitment. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Jon Hamm, Aasif Mandvi, Bill Paxton, Madhur Mittal, Suraj Sharma Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
