This week in theaters it's time to kick some ghost butt with the all-new, all-female "Ghostbusters". Plenty of fan hate for this one, but critics seemed to genuinely like it. If fantasy isn't your thing, then you might enjoy the true story thriller "The Infiltrator" starring Bryan Cranston. In limited release we have Woody Allen's new film "Cafe Society" and the dystopian romance "Equals" starring Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult. More about each movie after the jump.
