"Gone," stars Amanda Seyfried, who must find a way to combat her sister's kidnapper, who is unseen and unidentified. The film is rated PG-13.

Finally, Tyler Perry returns to the big screen in "Good Deeds." Perry plays businessman Wesley Deeds, who's jolted out of his scripted life when he meets Lindsey, a single mother who works on the cleaning crew in his office building. It is rated PG-13.
