The brothers-in-law are back! Ben (Kevin Hart), a recently graduated police rookie, now aspires to be a detective like his soon-to-be brother-in-law, but James (Ice Cube) still doesn’t think that he has what it takes for the job. He reluctantly takes Ben with him to follow up on a lead in Miami. Plans for a quick trip go awry when their unorthodox policing gets them into a compromising situation that threatens to derail a major case… and Ben’s wedding day.

A polar bear of many words, Norm’s greatest gripe is simple: there is no room for tourists in the Arctic. But when a maniacal developer threatens to build luxury condos in his own backyard, Norm does what all normal polar bears would do: He heads to New York City to stop the madness. With a cast of ragtag lemmings at his side, Norm takes on the Big Apple, big business and a big identity crisis to save the day.

When his dysfunctional family clashes over the holidays, young Max (Emjay Anthony) is disillusioned and turns his back on Christmas. Little does he know, this lack of festive spirit has unleashed the wrath of Krampus, a demonic force of ancient evil intent on punishing non-believers. All hell breaks loose as beloved holiday icons take on a monstrous life of their own, laying siege to the fractured family’s home and forcing them to fight for each other if they hope to survive.

Now showing. PG-13.

This supernatural horror film follows Sara Price (Natalie Dormer) as she travels to Tokyo to find her twin sister, Jess, who has gone missing. Jess was last seen walking into Aokigahara, a forest at the base of Mount Fuji known as the Suicide Forest because of the large number of people who end their lives there. Sara is determined to search the woods for her sister despite warnings not to venture into the place.
