Five Things to Know About 47 Ronin

Given that the masterless samurai Keanu Reeves vehicle 47 Ronin is being released into the wild on Christmas Day with little-to-no fanfare, the chances of you seeing it this weekend (let alone being aware of its general existence) are probably slim to none. But if in an eggnog-induced haze, you do find yourself stumbling into an empty theater where these ronin are rumbling onscreen, here are five things you should know.

Five Things to Know About Delivery Man

Considering that The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is opening this weekend, there's little chance of anyone opting to see Delivery Man -- the Vince Vaughn-starring sacrificial lamb going up against that box office monster -- instead.

Five Things to Know About Escape From Tomorrow

Escape from Tomorrow -- in which a seemingly ordinary man loses his mind at the Happiest Place on EarthTM Disney World -- was one of the buzziest titles from this year's Sundance Film Festival (and a movie that many thought would never be released).

Four Things to Know About The Wizard of Oz: IMAX 3D

All due respect to Sam Raimi's decent Oz: The Great and Powerful, but when it comes to onscreen depictions of that magical land over the rainbow, it's impossible to top the 1939 childhood favorite The Wizard of Oz, which is now 75 years young. (Although, if you want to be all ageist about it, the film doesn't technically hit the big 7-5 until 2014.) Warner Bros., which currently holds distribution rights to the Victor Fleming-directed musical fantasy, is marking the occasion by releasing a five-disc Blu-ray and DVD set sporting all-new bonus features and collectibles on October 1.

(Go here to find specific IMAX locations in your area.) If you do decide to take your family to The Wizard of Oz -- and honestly, why wouldn't you? -- here are four things you should know:

Before you join them on their globetrotting second adventure, here are five things you should know about RED 2.
