UNDATED (CBS) -- Jennifer Aniston heads to a commune, a Scottish princess becomes Disney's latest heroine and Abraham Lincoln like you've never seen him before. It's all coming up this weekend at the box office.
Moviegoers will be seen a new side of 'The Great Empancipator' in "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," which will have its U.S. premiere tonight. The fantasy film details the secret life of our 16th president as he battles vampires, and casts the civil war in a whole new light.
Benjamin walker plays the vampire killer who would be president. He says, "He was ordinary, but he did extraordinary things, and that was certainly a nice window in, because I won't speak for everybody, but I feel like, as Americans, we kind of rob him of his humanity because we worship him."
The film opens Friday in 2D and 3D.
Tonight there will actually be two premieres in Hollywood, the newly renamed Dolby Theater, formerly known as the Kodak Theater, will host its inaugural event the world premiere of the new Disney/Pixar film, "Brave".
"Brave" tells the story of Merida - a princess from the Scottish highlands known for her fiery personality and skill with a bow and arrow.
"Brave" is the first Disney/Pixar film with a female protagonist voiced by Kelly MacDonald, who also starred in "no country for old men." "Brave" opens nationwide in 3D Friday.
New on dvd this week is "Wanderlust." Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd star as a big city couple downsized out of Manhattan, and into a more freewheeling, rural commune. "Wanderlust" is rated R.
And the whole family can enjoy "Big Miracle;" Drew Barrymore and John Krasinski star in the story of volunteers in Alaska who works to save a family of gray whales trapped by the thickening ice in the arctic circle.
