This week’s two wide releases have a lot in common: they’re both rated PG-13, and they’re both hitting theaters with few advanced reviews. But are After Earth and Now You See Me safe for the family? Read on to find out.
What’s it about? Cypher (Will Smith) and Kitai (Jaden Smith) crash land on an abandoned Earth, and must navigate a perilous post-apocalyptic wasteland to signal for help.
Who’s it for? It’s rated PG for “sci-fi action violence and some disturbing images.” Your teens will be fine, but middle schoolers may find the whole thing a little too intense.
Is it any good? Unfortunately, the reviews for After Earth are being held until the day of its release.
What’s it about? The FBI is on the trail of a team of crack team of bank robbers, who perform magic shows as a diversion to raid the coffers of corrupt businessmen.
Who’s it for? It’s rated PG-13 for “language, some action and sexual content.” It’s probably safe for older teens.
Is it any good? Once again, we’d love to tell you what the critics thought, but the reviews for Now You See Me are being held prior to the film’s release.
