Rila Fukushima, who plays Yukio, and Hugh Jackman in a scene from "The Wolverine."
Hugh Jackman returns to his famed "X-Men" role, but this time in a more character-driven action film, the director says. The movie, set in Japan, falters with a predictable third act.
Johnny Depp as Tonto and Armie Hammer as the Lone Ranger are burdened with a bloated, incoherent would-be epic. Each provide moments of wit, but they're just not enough.
The story of the Lone Ranger has been told many times, on radio, in adventure novels, a TV series and several unsuccessful films. Surely it has never been given such a strange rendition as in the latest failed movie adaptation. The film is a bloated, incoherent would-be epic that stumbles li…
"Despicable Me 2" is a gag-filled delight from start-to-finish. It's got more laughs in its first five minutes - from its larynx-bending voice actors, its loopy, goofy design and its milling, mewling Minions - than "Monsters University" managed over its entire length.

No. 7: 'World War Z' with $9.4 million (last week No. 5) -- The undead scale walls as they seek to invade Israel in World War Z. The living dead are depicted as fast-moving, twitchy and just scary enough. The film rarely devolves into a "mow them down" video game.
