Let’s take a look at a big batch of movies opening this week (that are going to lose to Guardians of the Galaxy).
Director: Ricardo De Montreuil
Stars: Gabriel Chavarria, Demian Bichir, Theo Rossi, Tony Revolori

Paris Can Wait [Limited]
Director: Eleanor Coppola
Stars: Diane Lane, Alec Baldwin, Arnaud Viard, Cedric Monnet
Plot: Anne is at a crossroads in her life. Long married to a successful, driven but inattentive movie producer, she unexpectedly finds herself taking a car trip from Cannes to Paris with a business associate of her husband. What should be a seven-hour drive turns into a carefree two-day adventure replete with diversions involving picturesque sights, fine food and wine, humor, wisdom and romance, reawakening Anne’s senses and giving her a new lust for life.
Director: Jonathan Levine
Stars: Amy Schumer, Goldie Hawn, Kim Caramele, Raven Goodwin
Plot: When her boyfriend dumps her before their exotic vacation, a young woman persuades her ultra-cautious mother to travel with her to paradise, with unexpected results.

Plot: Robbed of his birthright, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy – whether he likes it or not.
