BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE
Superheroes are supposed to stick together, right? Well, not in this comic-inspired flick. When Batman becomes weary of Superman’s intentions, he seeks to remove him from the face of the earth. But little does Batman know, he has bigger fish to fry, because the evil Lex Luther is up to some seriously vile antics. Spot Laurence Fishburne in the action drama when you hit the theaters this weekend.

Looking forward to celebrating Easter? This one is for you! Based on the crucifixion of Jesus, this Fox special zooms in on Christ’s last days—from the Last Supper up until his resurrection. Tyler Perry serves as the host of the New Orleans-based production as the all-star cast tells the 2,000-year-old story through song and dance. It originally aired on Palm Sunday, but lucky for you, you can still catch it online.
