Opens Thursday, Jul 25, 2013 Synopsis: A woman moves into her late sister's Detroit high rise in order to investigate her mysterious death in this supernatural thriller starring Mischa Barton. When Janet Slate (Julianne Michelle) summoned the courage to strike out on her own, she had her whole life ahead of her. Newly independent in a downtown Detroit apartment, she was finally free from her overbearing, egomaniacal mother (Rebecca De Mornay). Then the unthinkable: Janet's boyfriend Mark (Corey Sevier) discovers her body in the middle of the street. Did Janet commit suicide by leaping from the ledge of her 13th-floor apartment, or were more sinister forces to blame for her untimely death? Convinced of foul play and determined to find answers, Janet's sister Lara (Barton) takes up residence in the apartment and begins searching for clues. Drawn to an ethereal nine-year-old girl who seems strangely attuned to the disturbing events unfolding in the building, Lara quickly realizes that should she fail to solve the mystery of Janet's death soon, many more lives -- including her own -- are sure to be lost. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Mischa Barton, Julianne Michelle, Corey Sevier, Rebecca De Mornay Movie Details Movie Review

Now Playing Synopsis: A mischievous magician gains the wisdom to become a powerful ruler after being swept away to a land of magic and mystery as director Sam Raimi and screenwriters Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole) explore the genesis of author L. Frank Baum's enduring tales of Oz. Shady illusionist Oscar Diggs (James Franco) enchants curious audiences at a Kansas circus. A self-professed con man, he's a fast-talking performer who aspires to follow in the footsteps of inventors like Thomas Edison. Oscar is being chased across the circus grounds by the rampaging Strongman when a tornado blows in and everyone runs for cover. Seeing a hot-air balloon as his only chance for escape, the illusionist jumps in and cuts himself free. Magically transported to the wondrous world of Oz, he soon encounters Theodora (Mila Kunis), a temperamental witch who surmises that he is the wizard named after their land (Oscar's nickname is Oz), foretold to fall from the sky, defeat a nasty witch, and ascend to the throne. Theodora takes Oscar to the Emerald City to meet her sister Evanora (Rachel Weisz), a powerful witch who reveals that he cannot become the rightful ruler of Oz until he's accomplished his mission. Later, as Oscar and his new flying-monkey companion Finley (voice of Zach Braff) prepare to face their fearsome enemy, they're joined by the fragile but fearless China Girl (voice of Joey King) and benevolent witch Glinda the Good (Michelle Williams), who help them prepare for the arduous battle ahead.
