Trailer Park - 4/18 Edition: ‘Transcendence’ and ‘A Haunted House 2’ try to scare the competition

By Michelle Vaccaro,

Sex, drugs and horror are the themes behind the newest films in theaters this week. While one major release makes light of creepy situations, another plays with the mind.

An assassination attempt gives a controversial scientist the opportunity to showcase his research in Transcendence. As Dr. Will Caster succumbs to radiation poisoning from the shooting, his wife and best friend help him transfer all of his knowledge to a computer, making him extremely powerful and dangerous. Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Morgan Freeman, Cole Hauser and Cillian Murphy star in the PG-13 sci-fi drama. The one hour and fifty-nine minute film is playing in 2D and IMAX theaters.

Marlon Wayans is back as Malcolm for the scary comedy A Haunted House 2. In the sequel to the 2013 film, Malcolm has started a new life with a different girlfriend and her kids. As they enter their new home, he once again gets the feeling that something isn’t right and starts to experience paranormal phenomena. The one hour and twenty-seven minute film is rated R for sex, nudity, language, drugs and violence.

Get an inside look at what it takes for a mother and her cubs to survive in the Alaskan wilderness in Bears. The film begins as the bears rise from hibernation. It shows their daily hardship as they cope with nature, search for food and evade predators. The G-rated film is playing for one hour and seventeen minutes. For every theater goer who goes to see Bears during opening weekend, The Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund will donate money to the National Park Fund.

A group of rejected writers search for their big break in Authors Anonymous. When a new writer joins the group and almost immediately lands a deal, jealousy rages amongst the rest of the group. The PG-13 comedy stars Kaley Cuoco, Chris Klein and Dennis Farina. It’s playing in limited theaters for one hour and thirty-five minutes.
