New Movies: Week of March 24th, 2014

Divergent ($54.6M), Muppets Most Wanted ($17M) and Mr. Peabody And Sherman ($11.8M) top the box office this week. New to theatres this week is a comedy, directed by Jason Bateman, titled Bad Words and Noah, a dramatic adventure film.

BadWordsJason Bateman (‘Identity Thief’) makes his feature directorial debut with Bad Words. In the comedy, Mr. Bateman portrays Guy Trilby, a 40-year-old man seeking catharsis in his life. He seizes the ideal that this will come for him through…the National Spelling Bee; after discovering a loophole in the rules, Guy zealously joins the competition and easily outpaces the pre-teen field in match after match. As reporter Jenny Widgeon (Kathryn Hahn of ‘Afternoon Delight’) delves into Guy’s story, Guy finds himself forging an unlikely friendship with a competitor, awkward 10-year-old Chaitanya (Rohan Chand of ‘Homeland’), which may spell things differently for his future.
