FILMS IN WIDE RELEASE

JOHNSON FAMILY VACATION
(opens Wednesday April 7th)

AAA can’t help the roadside emergency that is the JOHNSON FAMILY VACATION. Even the onboard navigation system has a meltdown on Nate Johnson (Cedric The Entertainer) and his family's cross-country trek to their annual family reunion/grudge match. Reluctantly along for the ride are Nate's wife (Williams), who’s only in it for the kids; their rapper-wannabe son (Bow Wow); their teenage daughter (Solange Knowles) who’s fashioned herself as the next Lolita; and their youngest (Gabby Soleil), whose imaginary dog Nate just can’t seem to keep track of. Can the Johnsons survive each other and all the obstacles the road throws at them to make it to Caruthersville, Missouri? Can they find Missouri?

THE ALAMO

THE ALAMO is the tale of a handful of men who stood up for their passion and ideals against an overwhelming force. In the spring of 1836, in the face of insurmountable odds, fewer than 200 ordinary men who believed in the future of Texas held the fort for 13 days against thousands of Mexican soldiers led by dictator General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna (Echevarría), ruler of Mexico. Commanded by three men – the young, brash Lt. Col. William Travis (Wilson); the zealous, passionate James Bowie (Patric); and the living legend David Crockett (Thornton) – the Texans would sacrifice their lives for their beliefs, but their deeds at the Alamo would make history as General Sam Houston’s (Quaid) emotional rallying call for Texas independence.

ELLA ENCHANTED

Ella (Anne Hathaway of "The Princess Diaries") lives in a fanciful and magical world where all children are given a “gift” from a fairy Godmother at the moment of their birth. Little Ella’s birthright is the gift--and curse--of obedience. As a result of this unfortunate circumstance, Ella cannot refuse any command, and is often left at the mercy of unscrupulous personalities. In a bid to regain control of her life, Ella goes on a quest to free herself from this mysterious curse. Ella must outwit a kingdom filled with ogres, giants, wicked stepsisters, talking books and evil plots. And, if she’s lucky, she may find love along the way.
