Here is a capsule look at movies in theaters this week:
“The D Train” — A Pittsburgh schlub tries to save his high school reunion by securing the attendance of a former classmate turned Hollywood actor, and goes to great lengths to do so. With Jack Black, James Marsden and Kathryn Hahn. Written and directed by Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel. (1:38) R.
Rating:PG-13 for innuendo and language
What it’s about: The Barden College Bellas get suspended from college competition, so they go to Europe to battle the best a cappella groups in the world.
“Tomorrowland” is Brad Bird’s jeremiad against the dystopia that is modern culture, with its yen for zombie apocalypses, environmental catastrophes and the 24 hours of fear telecast by cable news.
It’s a movie for the “dreamers,” the ones like its teenage heroine Casey (Britt Robertson). She’s the only kid in class who asks the obvious, when confronted with lectures on nuclear proliferation, the unstable politics of much of the world and global climate change.
