The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones stars Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Robert Sheehan, Kevin Zegers and Lena Headey.

In the 2013 adventure fantasy film, a girl learns that she is the descendant of a line of half-angel warriors who protect the present day world from demons.

After her mother disappears, she finds others like her and heads into Downworld, an alternate “New York City”  filled with dangerous and deadly creatures.

Next up this week is The Smurfs 2, which is the animated film sequel to the 2011 film The Smurfs.

This time around, Gargamel kidnaps Smurfette because of a spell she knows that can turn his newest evil creations into real Smurfs.

It is up to the Smurfs and their group of human friends to rescue her.

The Smurfs 2 features the voices of Neil Patrick Harris, Brendan Gleeson, Jayma Mays, Katy Perry and Hank Azaria.

The HBO drama Behind The Candelabra tells the true story of the last ten years of Liberace’s life and the affair he had with a much younger man by the name of Scott Thorson.

Behind The Candelabra stars Michael Douglas, Matt Damon, Dan Aykroyd and Scott Bakula.

Winnie Mandela stars Jennifer Hudson as the South African politician of the same name. The film follows her life, beginning with childhood, and even includes the details behind her husband’s imprisonment.

The bio-drama co-stars Terrence Howard, Wendy Crewson, Elias Koteas and Talitha Ndima.
