All-Star Superman

Lex Luthor poisons Superman with solar radiation, setting up a showdown that just might kill The Man of Steel. Again? How many times has Superman died now? Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) costars … in voice only. (Warner Bros.)

Black Lightning
A loser (Grigory Dobrygin) inherits an old car from his dead dad, only to find that it can fly. Naturally, he becomes a crime fighter with no powers other than a hovering jalopy and a hoodie. Already, it’s better than The Cape. (Universal)

Due Date
A high-strung expectant father (Robert Downey Jr.) is forced to road-trip across the country with an idiot (Zach Galifianakis) in the movie event that looked way funnier in the trailer. Now, if the car could fly
… (Warner Bros.)

Run On
It’s the stand-up event of the year as top Christian comedians … hold up. There are “Christian comedians”? If Christian rock has taught us anything, it’s that a flying car is more likely than a funny Jesus comic. (Pure Flix)

Weeds: Season 6
Nancy (Mary-Louise Parker) escapes her drug-lord baby daddy, resulting in a far more entertaining road trip than Due Date. Can the Worst Mother in TV History redeem herself? Probably not—but she’s still fun to watch. (Lionsgate)
