A race horse, a rom-com and a riveting thriller hit theaters this week.
It's a real horse race at the box office this weekend with the movie "Secretariat" trying to out-pace a romantic comedy starring Katherine Heigl.
Secretariat won horse racing's Triple Crown in 1973, but few know the thoroughbred's owner was a woman.
This bucking-the-odds film tells the true story of a Virginia housewife who took over her father's stable and produced possibly the greatest racehorse of all time.
"Secretariat" is rated PG.
Tragedy turns life upside down for two people who hate each other in "Life as We Know It."
Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel have only one thing in common: They're the god-parents of an adorable baby named Sophie.
When Sophie's mom and dad suddenly die they leave the at-odds godparents in charge, together.
"Life as We Know It" is rated PG-13.
Edward Norton's a prisoner and Robert Deniro's his parole officer in "Stone."
This thriller finds the veteran officer reviewing the case of an inmate eligible for early release.
That inmate's wife, played by Milla Jovovich, uses her wiles and influence on Deniro, starting a relationship that puts them all on a crash course.
"Stone" is rated R.
Finally, Wes Craven directs "My Soul to Take".
This slasher focuses on a group of teenagers born on the same night that a serial killer was killed.
Before he died the Riverton Ripper swore he would return.
It's just another campfire story until those born on that night start turning up in body bags.
"My Soul to Take" is rated R.
