Hit the jump for plot info on each film.
Variety reports that Fox has bumped up Levy’s The Internship, which will now compete with M. Night Shyamalan’s After Earth, starring Will Smith and Jaden Smith. The Internship reunites Vaughn and Wilson as two old school salesmen who are attempting to reinvent themselves with an internship at a major tech company. We’ll see if the Wedding Crashers team can out-earn the father/son Smith picture.

Here’s the synopsis for Paranoia:
In this high-stakes thriller, Adam Cassidy (Liam Hemsworth) is an ambitious junior technologist trying to climb the ranks of telecom giant Wyatt Corporation. But after one costly mistake, Adam is blackmailed by ruthless CEO Nicholas Wyatt (Gary Oldman) to turn corporate spy by going to work for the firm’s top competitor, which is run by Wyatt’s old mentor, Jock Goddard (Harrison Ford). Adam soon finds himself delivered into prepackaged success, living his fantasy life of old-world boardrooms, private clubs, exotic cars, and all the spoils of Manhattan bachelorhood. However, behind the scenes, he is merely a pawn in Wyatt’s power play, and must search for a way out from under his boss, who will stop at nothing, even murder, to gain a multi-billion dollar advantage.
From original The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo director Niels Arden Opley comes the revenge thriller Dead Man Down centers on a mobster’s hitman (Farrell) who teams up with a crime victim seeking retribution in order to achieve their violent revenge. Farrell’s character is reportedly the right-hand man of a New York crime boss and is out to avenge the deaths of his wife and daughter.
The plot of sci-fi/horror flick Dark Skies centers on “a 6-year-old boy who’s apparently been ‘marked’ by an alien (living among us) for future abduction.” It reportedly shares some of the same themes as Fright Night, with elements of child abuse. It also stars Josh Hamilton (J. Edgar).
Here’s a look at what we can expect from Disneynature’s Bears:
Disneynature’s 2014 motion picture “Bears” cozies up to the brown bears who call Alaska’s stunning coastal mountains and shores their home, revealing through tender moments and entertaining imagery how these animals are far from grizzly creatures. This shooting location provides some of the most spectacular visuals ever for a Disneynature film. The film is directed by Keith Scholey (“African Cats”) and Alastair Fothergill (“Earth,” “African Cats” and “Chimpanzee”).
Finally, here’s a synopsis for Admission:
In the movie, Ms. Fey is portraying Portia Nathan, an admissions officer at Princeton University. Evaluating thousands of hopeful college students, the exceedingly bright and driven woman lives her life by the book, both at work and in her relationship with a faculty colleague, Mark (Mr. Sheen). Visiting an experimental New Hampshire high school submitting applicants, Portia is caught off guard when its co-founder John Halsey (Mr. Rudd) turns out to have attended college with her. She is then floored when reminded of the life-altering decision that she made while still a student herself; she had a son, who she gave up for adoption, and who she now realizes may be one of John’s students, the precocious misfit Jeremiah. As Portia’s emotions surge forth, she finds her life turning upside down in embarrassing ways and begins to bend the admissions rules – in the hopes of getting Jeremiah on the best path while perhaps righting her own as well.
