This week: Mickey Rourke attempts to unleash the Titans in “Immortals,” a remake of “Footloose” cuts loose, Adam Sandler is doubly unfunny in “Jack and Jill,” a young couple goes crazy being apart in “Like Crazy,” and “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” makes a noble Blu-ray debut.

Immortals

Box Office: $84 million

Rotten Tomatoes: 36% Rotten

Storyline: Eons after the immortal Titans were imprisoned by the gods, power-mad King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) declares war on humanity and searches for the magical Epirus Bow that can release the revenge-thirsty Titans and destroy the gods, including Zeus (Luke Evans) and Poseidon (Kellan Lutz). One peasant named Theseus (Henry Cavill) comes forth with his allies to take on Hyperion and prevent another all-out war between the immortals.

Extras! An alternate opening featuring a young Theseus and two alternate endings are included on the Blu-ray. This immortal smackdown is also available on Blu-ray »
