Seventh Son
It's been bumped so many times that we'd honestly kind of forgotten it hadn't actually come out, but no -- Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore's The Seventh Son is still on the Universal schedule, where it's currently slated to come out on (long pause) February 6, 2015.

The Giver
This weekend brings an interesting mix of new releases to theaters—we have some tongue-in-cheek mindless action, some young-adult dystopian literature-turned-film, and a risqué buddy cop comedy (sort of). The good news: a wide spectrum of genres that would normally attract lots of moviegoers. The bad news: not one of the new releases is getting good reviews, which may scare any moviegoers away.

Review: The Giver PLOT: In a dystopian future world, young Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) is chosen by his community to be the new Receiver of Memory.

Watch: Step Into The World Of 'The Giver' With Jeff Bridges & Meryl Streep With 5 Clips “The Giver” hits theaters this weekend, and if you’re still on the fence about seeing it, these five clips probably won’t help much. At first, we were optimistic about Phillip Noyce’s adaptation of Lois Lowry’s 1993 pre-YA novel, with the casting of producer-star Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep inspiring a degree of confidence . But each time we get a closer look, the thing looks more and more like a paint-by-numbers dystopian teen disgrace. The most interesting morsel here is a peek at Taylor Swift in her small role as a former “receiver” who now only exists in memory.

CS Video: Jeff Bridges and the Cast of The Giver In the world of Lois Lowry's The Giver, there are no colors, no emotions and no memories.

The old ways of mankind are not wholly forgotten, however, thanks to the role of the Giver, one individual whose job it is to maintain the memories and, when the time is right, to pass them along to a receiver, a young man whose job it will be to become the new Giver.

The haunting story of THE GIVER centers on Jonas (Brenton Thwaites), a young man who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment.
