One Direction: This is Us

Do we even need to say anything about this movie? It’s all the world’s female population has been talking about for the past week.

In case you’ve been living in a cave, though, this flick shows off what life is like on the road for 1D and also gives viewers an intimate look at the guys’ lives before and after X Factor.

Obviously, it’s a must for anyone who’s into 1D (duh, we didn’t need to tell you that!) but it's also an interesting watch for anyone curious about this boy band and the worldwide phenomenon they’ve caused.



Getaway

With Ethan Hawke, Selena Gomez and Jon Voight, Getaway sure has a lot of star power behind it, which only helps take this movie from good to great, adding to its already intriguing plot.

Finally, we have a film that’s making use of a fresh concept we haven’t seen a thousand times before, as a former race car driver is forced to get behind the wheel of a Shelby Mustang Super Snake and listen to a mystery villain’s voice in order to try and save his kidnapped wife.

This action thriller has entertainment written all over it.
 

The Lifeguard

Kristen Bell stars in The Lifeguard and plays a New York-based reporter who can no longer take the stresses of everyday life (don’t we all know how that feels?!).

Deciding to quit her job, she moves back to the last place where she remembers being truly happy – the Connecticut home in which she grew up.

Once there, she starts working as a lifeguard (the job she had while in high school) and, even though she’s about to turn 30, begins dating a troubled 16-year-old, which can only mean one thing: DRAMA!
