New this week:
The Lucky One, starring Zac Efron, Taylor Schilling, and Blythe Danner. It’s another romantic drama based on a Nicholas Sparks novel, so if you’ve seen The Notebook, you probably know what to expect. Just don’t expect Efron (High School Musical, Hairspray) to burst into song.
You have a couple of choices for Earth Day this weekend. Disney’s Chimpanzee and the IMAX/3D documentary To The Arctic both open this weekend.

Darling Companion, the latest from writer Larry Kasdan (The Empire Strikes Back, I Love You To Death, The Big Chill) stars Diane Keaton and Kevin Kline as an unhappily married couple who find peace while searching for their lost dog.
