"Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" - Chris Pine plays the lead role, making him the fourth person to do so. He portrays a young Ryan in a film that is actually not a story from one of Tom Clancy's novels. Kevin Costner and Keira Knightley show up in this movie as well.
"Ride Along" - A comedy starring Ice Cube and Kevin Hart. Hap says this is an example of a movie that studios "dump" in January.
"The Nut Job" - Animated feature for the kids.
"Devil's Due" - Creepy looking horror film, assumable about a woman giving birth to the devil. Dare you to see this one.
