New this week

Hellion

Obsessed with heavy metal, dirt bike racing and partaking in the occasional act of vandalism with his band of delinquents, the behavior of 13-year-old Jacob Wilson has begun to raise concerns around town, especially when it starts to involve his younger brother, Wes. While the boys’ father, Hollis, loves his sons, he is still reeling from the loss of their mother, spending more time drowning his sorrows at the local bar and working on his damaged beach house than being an active parent. When the local authorities catch wind of the increasingly volatile situation, Wes is taken into custody by his Aunt Pam, leaving Jacob and Hollis to fend for themselves. In Wes’ absence, Jacob becomes increasingly obsessed with two things: winning a local motocross championship and getting his brother back. Starring: Aaron Paul, Juliette Lewis, Jonny Mars, Deke Garner. Not Rated

Persecuted

Nationally acclaimed evangelist John Luther is the last obstacle in the way of sweeping religious reform in America. When a U.S. senator orders Luther abducted and framed for the murder of an innocent teenage girl, an unprecedented era of persecution is unleashed with Luther running for his life to uncover the deadly plot. As evangelist turned fugitive, Luther vows to expose anyone involved with or profiting from the girl’s murder; a mission that brings him face to face with the coming storm of persecution that will threaten the entire Christian community in America. Starring: James Remar, Fred Dalton Thompson, Dean Stockwell, Natalie Grant. PG-13

Planes: Fire and Rescue

A new comedy-adventure about second chances, featuring a dynamic crew of elite firefighting aircraft devoted to protecting historic Piston Peak National Park from raging wildfire. When world-famous air racer Dusty learns that his engine is damaged and he may never race again, he must shift gears and is launched into the world of aerial firefighting. Dusty joins forces with veteran fire and rescue helicopter Blade Ranger and his courageous team, including spirited super-scooper Dipper, heavy-lift helicopter Windlifter, ex-military transport Cabbie and a lively bunch of brave all-terrain vehicles known as The Smokejumpers. Together, the fearless team battles a massive wildfire and Dusty learns what it takes to become a true hero. Starring: Dane Cook, Ed Harris, Julie Bowen, Hal Holbrook. PG

Sex Tape

When Jay and Annie first got together, their romantic connection was intense — and though they’re still very much in love, 10 years and two kids have cooled the passion. To kick things up a notch, they decide — why not? — to make a video of themselves trying out every position in “The Joy of Sex” in one marathon, three-hour session. It seems like a great idea — until they discover that their most private video is no longer private. With their reputations on the line, they know they’re just one click away from being laid bare to the world … but in their race to reclaim their video, they’ll find that it will expose even more than they bargained for. Starring: Jason Segel, Cameron Diaz, Ellie Kemper, Rob Lowe, Jack Black. R

The Purge: Anarchy

One night a year, all crime — including murder — is legal for 12 hours. A man heads out into the chaos, intent on killing thugs as revenge for his son’s death, but ends up rescuing a stranded couple. Starring: Frank Grillo, Kiele Sanchez, Zach Gilford, Michael K. Williams, Amy Paffrath. R

Wish I Was Here

A struggling actor, father and husband tries to find identity and purpose in his life when he home-schools his kids. Starring: Zach Braff, Josh Gad, Mandy Patinkin, Kate Hudson, Joey King. R
