Flick Picks 6/4/13: A Good Day to Die Hard, Identity Thief, Breaking Bad Season 5

New This Week!

ENTERTAINMENT: New York Cop John McClane travels to Russia to help his son who is imprisoned in Moscow in the latest installment of the Bruce Willis Die Hard saga, A Good Day to Die Hard. They must overcome their differences and work together to foil a nuclear weapons heist. Also, lots of things get blown up. Also this week, Jason Bateman tries to clear his name after con-woman Melissa McCarthy steals his identity in the road movie comedy Identity Thief. If you're looking for a unique, funny take on horror along the lines of Shaun of the Dead, then give Warm Bodies a try. It's a take on Romeo and Juliet, except that Romeo is a zombie and Juliet is a human. It received rave reviews based on its originality and sweetness. Finally, we've got the animated kids' tale Escape From Planet Earth, about an alien trapped on a scary planet - that happens to be ours!

SERIES: What mischief will meth dealers Walt and Jesse get into in season 5 of Breaking Bad? And just how involved will Skyler become with the family business? Find out this week! We've also got new seasons of Falling Skies (season 2), The Big C (season 3) and the English cop buddy drama Vexed (season 2).
