New this week

▪ “No Escape” – In their new overseas home, members of an American family soon find themselves caught in the middle of a coup, and they frantically look for a safe escape in an environment where foreigners are being immediately executed. Owen Wilson, Lake Bell and Pierce Brosnan star.

▪ “War Room” – This independent faith-based drama follows a married couple who seemingly have the perfect life, but as the husband flirts with temptation and the wife becomes increasingly bitter, a new acquaintance encourages them to find happiness in prayer.

▪ “We Are Your Friends” — Zac Efron stars as an aspiring DJ looking for fame and fortune in L.A. As opposed to being an actor looking for fame and fortune in L.A. What a stretch.
