Pick of the Week

X-Men: First Class

X-Men: First Class
James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender lead a star-studded cast in the exciting origin story of the popular X-Men saga. Decades before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before archnemeses Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time, working together as friends to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. The fate of humanity depends on a team of powerful but untested young mutants who will have to come together and use their abilities to prevent nuclear Armageddon.

Everything Must Go Box Art

Everything Must Go Will Ferrell stars as Nick Halsey, a career salesman whose regular day at the office turns out to be the worst day of his life. Canned from his job for falling off the wagon one last time, Nick returns home to find that his wife has left him, changing the locks on their picturesque suburban home and dumping all of his worldly possessions on the front lawn. Faced with his life imploding, Nick sits himself in an armchair with some beers and puts it all on the line -- or more properly, on the lawn -- reluctantly holding a yard sale that becomes a unique strategy for survival.
