Currently on the big screen is Mirror Mirror, a new take on the classic Snow White tale. Snow White is an innocent princess in exile, and an evil Queen is ruthlessly ruling the kingdom she has stolen. Seven courageous rebel dwarfs join forces with Snow White as she fights to reclaim her birthright and win her Prince. But the evil Queen is determined to take the prince for herself, and she'll stop at nothing to keep Snow White away from him. 

And in case you missed it in theaters, The Adventures of Tintin is now out on DVD. The film follows Tintin and Snowy as they discover a ship with a centuries-old mystery and get drawn into a desperate chase from a deadly villain.

Drawn into a centuries-old mystery, Tintin finds himself in the sightlines of Ivan Ivanovitch Sakharine, a diabolical villain who believes Tintin has stolen a priceless treasure tied to a dastardly pirate named Red Rackham. But with the help of his dog Snowy, the salty, cantankerous Captain Haddock and the bumbling detectives Thompson & Thomson, Tintin will travel half the world, outwitting and outrunning his enemies in a breathless chase to find the final resting place of The Unicorn, a shipwreck that may hold the key to vast fortune…and a ancient curse.

From the high seas to the sands of North African deserts, every new twist and turn sweeps Tintin and his friends to escalating levels of thrills and peril, proving that when you dare to risk everything, there’s no limit to what you can do.
