DAWN OF THE PLANET OF APES 
 
-Baxter Avenue Theatres             
A decade ago, apes and men separated on a bridge, to take two different paths. The apes followed theirs to freedom, but the path men took led to disease and war. Now in the moments before dawn, the two paths are destined to collide once again. In Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, a growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar (Andy Serkis, The Lord of the Rings films) is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth's dominant species. Also starring Gary Oldman, Keri Russell and Judy Greer. Directed by Matt Reeves (Let Me In, Cloverfield).

SEX TAPE  (R)  
-Baxter Avenue Theatres

.In the new comedy Sex Tape, Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) are a married couple still very much in love, but ten years and two kids have cooled the passion. To get it back, they decide—why not?—to make a video of themselves trying out every position in The Joy of Sex in one marathon three-hour session. It seems like a great idea, until they discover that their most private video has gone public. In a panic, they begin a wild night of adventure—tracking down leads, roping in friends, duping Annie's boss—all to reclaim their video, their reputation, their sanity, and, most importantly, their marriage. Also starring Rob Corddry, Ellie Kemper and Rob Lowe. Directed by Jake Kasdan (Bad Teacher).

 AI WEIWEI THE FAKE CASE (NR) 
 
-Village 8 Theatres
LOUISVILLE EXCLUSIVE/NEW RELEASE

Ai Weiwei The Fake Case is a provocative new documentary about Chinese conceptual artist Ai Weiwei, named the world’s most powerful artist by Art Review Magazine. In April 2011, Ai is kidnapped by the Chinese authorities and detained at a secret location for 81 days, then put under house arrest. He suffers from sleeping disorder and memory loss, 18 cameras are monitoring his studio and home, police agents follow his every move, and heavy restrictions from the Kafkaesque Chinese authorities weigh him down. Picking up where Alison Klayman’s Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry left off, Ai Weiwei The Fake Case is more explicitly political, reflecting Ai’s battle against the gigantic lawsuit thrust upon him by the Chinese government in an effort to silence him.  Ai Weiwei is shaken, but during his year on probation he steadily finds new ways to provoke and challenge the mighty powers of the Chinese authorities in his fight for human rights and free expression.  The film also features the creation of S.A.C.R.E.D., a new work depicting Ai’s time in prison, which premiered during the Venice Biennale. Directed by Andreas Johnsen.
