Tomorrowland: George Clooney stars in this big-budget Disney epic which sounds like a rare misfire from director Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol). Reviewed by our own Joe Webb here.
Thanks to iffy critical response and a lackluster marketing campaign (based on the trailer: I couldn’t tell you what this is about beyond magic rings and flying bathtubs) I’d expect this to be a semi-disaster domestically for the studio.

Poltergeist: Remake of the 1982 horror classic from producer Sam Raimi and director Gil Kenan (Monster House, City of Ember). Reviews are somewhat kinder than expected, sounds like a decent time waster if you were to stumble upon it on cable in a year.
