WRATH OF THE TITANS In a boulder-strewn Greek past of volcanoes, but no trees, Perseus (Sam Worthington, stoic as ever) is living the life of a village fisherman and single dad to Helius (John Bell). The kid is growing up without religion, without his grandpa. That’s because Perseus knows “There’s no such thing as ‘good gods,’” and his dad, Zeus (Liam Neeson, giving his more than it deserves), is entirely too busy for grandparenting. With Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Rosamund Pike, Bill Nighy, Danny Huston. (1:39) PG-13 for intense sequences of fantasy violence and action. ★★ ½
Mirror Mirror This isn’t your Uncle Walt’s “Snow White.” It’s still kid-friendly, with lots of positive messages, especially for young girls. But this flip and sometimes funny take on the classic fairytale is a mash-up of many such tales, packing in bits of Cinderella and “Beauty and the Beast,” with a touch of Robin Hood for good measure. Anything to dress up one of the blander fairytale heroines from the Grimm Brothers’ canon. With Lily Collins, Julia Roberts, Armie Hammer, Nathan Lane. (1:46) PG for some fantasy action and mild rude humor. ★★
