For one month every year, five highly competitive friends hit the ground running in a no-holds-barred game of tag they’ve been playing since the first grade—risking their necks, their jobs and their relationships to take each other down with the battle cry: “You’re It!”
This year, the game coincides with the wedding of their only undefeated player, which should finally make him an easy target. But he knows they’re coming… and he’s ready. Based on a true story, the New Line Cinema comedy Tag shows how far some guys will go to be the last man standing.
The seemingly bucolic town of Derry looks like a place you could settle down – if only it weren’t its high statistics for people going missing (with adults it’s 6% higher than the average; with kids it’s ‘much higher’).

That said, Annabelle takes some stock ideas, dresses them up with carefully modulated pacing, light and sound – and a very game cast – and kicks out the jams!
In 1993, a high school production of a play called The Gallows failed to finish its premiere performance when the male lead was accidentally hanged on the stage gallows. Now, the same high school is about to try to perform the play again.
What if a massive earthquake happened along the San Andreas Fault?
That’s the premise of the epic Dwayne Johnson disaster flick San Andreas, which finds Ray (Johnson) and his estranged wife, Emma (Carla Gugino), trying to get from Los Angeles to San Francisco to find their daughter, Blake (Alexandra Daddario).
San Andreas opens on May 29, 2015. Check out the first trailer for San Andreas after the jump.
