NOW PLAYING IN CINEMAS

The Amityville Horror (3:15 Zomrieš) - Horror by Andrew Douglas. The classic '70s horror movie about a family who moves into a haunted house gets remade by Hollywood uber-producer Michael Bay. Ryan Reynolds and Melissa George star as a young married couple who move into a house with their three children, only to find that something evil is astir.


Red Eye (Nočný let) - Thriller by Wes Craven. Rachel McAdams excels as Lisa, a tough, smart young woman flying home to Miami after her grandmother's funeral. When she sits next to the disarmingly handsome and charming Jackson (Cillian Murhpy), Lisa soon learns of a dangerous plot that threatens her father (Brian Cox), the hotel she manages, and a major US government agent. This smart, fun thriller is carried effortlessly by the young McAdams.


The Legend of Zorro(Legenda o Zorrovi) - Action by Martin Campbell. Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta-Jones return for this sequel to the 1995 movie about the masked swordfighter.


The 40 Year Old Virgin(40 rokov panic) - Comedy by Judd Apatow. Comedian Steve Carell, a frequent contributor to the US satirical news programme The Daily Show, stars as Andy Stitzer, an awkward man who has spent his 40 years without ever having sex. When his friends learn Andy's secret, they set out to find him a woman. This leads him to Trish (Catherine Keener), a single mother who's hesitant to consummate the relationship because she's still reeling from a nasty breakup.
