Stallone & Schwarzenegger's "Escape Plan", "Carrie" Remake, the WikiLeaks Movie "Fifth Estate"

In Theaters Now

In The Fifth Estate, Benedict Cumberbatch plays WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, in a thriller about how he helped create the site for whistleblowers to anonymously leak information about corporate crimes . . . and eventually, covert military operations.

The real Julian Assange is currently hiding out as a political refugee, and was granted asylum by the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

Chloe Grace Moretz takes on the role of Carrie in this horror remake about a telekinetic girl who unleashes her power on her classmates at the senior prom.  Julianne Moore plays her religiously fanatical mother.

It's based on the book by Stephen King, which was turned into the 1976 classic with Sissy Spacek as Carrie, and John Travolta as the guy who poured pig's blood on her.

Sylvester Stallone is a security expert who busts out of prisons for a living to test their security flaws.  But when he's betrayed by a client and locked in a top secret location, he has to rely on his new cellmate, Arnold Schwarzenegger, to help him escape.

Vincent D'Onofrio plays Sly's business partner, 50 Cent and Amy Ryan from "The Office" are members of their security team, and Jim Caviezel from "Person of Interest" is the prison warden.

It's called "Escape Plan", because that's what people will wish they had once they're inside the theater.

The release date for "Escape Plan" was delayed.  Since it stars Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, I'm guessing it was supposed to be released in 1986?
