Here's what's coming to movie theaters this weekend.
MISS PEREGRINE'S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN
Tim Burton directs a macabre comedy about a residence for “gifted” kids whose special powers shock and amaze the home’s newest boarder (Asa Butterfield). Eva Green, Judi Dench and Samuel L. Jackson co-star.
Repeatedly kicked off the release schedule for months, the latest from director Josh Hess (“Napoleon Dynamite”) finally hits screens with Zach Galifianakis as an armored-car driver suckered into a heist by his sexy co-worker (Kristen Wiig).
COMMAND AND CONTROL
Documentarian Robert Kenner (“Food, Inc.”) takes a chilling look back at how a dropped ratchet socket at an Arkansas missile silo nearly triggered Armageddon in 1980.
Mark Wahlberg and his “Lone Survivor” director Peter Berg hook up to dramatize the deadly oil rig fire that spawned the infamous BP spill that leaked millions of gallons of crude into the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. Kurt Russell and Kate Hudson co-star.
