Chernobyl Diaries
A group of good-lookin’ young tourists in the Ukraine go sight-seeing in Prypiat, a city deserted after the next-door Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986. A fine plan, until mutants begin attacking and no one actually writes a diary. (Warner Bros.)

A high school weirdo (Annalynne McCord) fantasizes/obsesses about performing surgery on fellow students, losing her virginity, curing her sickly sister, and impressing her mother (Traci Lords) and her priest (John Waters!). (Anchor Bay)

Mad Men: Season 5
Megan sings, Don broods, Roger struggles to stay relevant, Joan struggles with motherhood, Peggy “meets” men at the movies, Pete finds some strange, Ginsberg joins SCDP, Roger drops acid, Joan “lands” Jaguar, everybody drinks! (Lionsgate)

Moonrise Kingdom
Wes Anderson’s indie-Instagram love story about two 1960s kids (Jared Gilman, Kara Hayward) who run away together into the New England wilderness, sending parents and townsfolk (including Bruce Willis and Bill Murray) into a kitschy tizzy. (Focus)

That’s My Boy
Andy Samberg sinks his post-Saturday Night Live film career with the ill-conceived tale of an idiot teen father (Adam Sandler) who grows up estranged from his bastard son (Samberg); zero hilarity ensues. All this, and Vanilla Ice! (Sony)
