"Hercules" and the Scarlett Johansson Sci-Fi Flick "Lucy" Are In Theaters

...and also "Very Good Girls"
Scarlett Johansson is kidnapped and forced to act as a drug mule, carrying a powerful synthetic drug inside her body. But when some of the chemicals leak into her system, they unlock her brain's capacity to operate on a higher level than any other human. As she develops increased intelligence, and powers like telepathy and telekinesis, she turns to Morgan Freeman to help her figure out where her abilities might lead . . . all while being chased by killers who want to extract their drugs from her body.

The Rock stars as Hercules. The Kellan Lutz movie from earlier this year was more of an origin story, but the Rock's movie takes place later in Hercules' life. It covers his legendary 12 Labors, and has him fighting in a war to return John Hurt to his throne. Joseph Fiennes plays the guy who commands Hercules to perform the 12 Labors . . . Ian McShane guides and convinces him he's still a hero after a tragic loss . . . and "Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit" model Irina Shayk makes her acting debut as Hercules' wife. It's directed by Brett Ratner, whose other credits include "X-Men: The Last Stand" and the "Rush Hour" trilogy.

Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen make a pact to lose their virginity before the end of the summer . . . and then both fall for the same guy. Demi Moore, Clark Gregg, and Richard Dreyfus are also in "Very Good Girls"
