NEW MOVIES FOR THE WEEKEND: 

 “X-Men:  Days Of Future Past” (PG-13)

The story is partially set in an alternate future where surviving mutants have been penned in concentration camps, giant robots called Sentinels patrol America, and most of the X-Men have been hunted and killed. In the present day, the X-Men were forced to stop a key event from unfolding in order to keep that future from occurring.  Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart star.

 

“Blended” (PG-13)

Explores the growing phenomenon of "blended families." After a disastrous blind date, single parents Lauren (Drew Barrymore) and Jim (Adam Sandler) agree on only one thing: they never want to see each other again. But when they each sign up separately for a fabulous family vacation with their kids, they are all stuck sharing a suite at a luxurious African safari resort for a week.
