3-D "Dragon" Fires Up the Big Screen

By's Karina Mitchell

Box office hits, "Avatar" and "Alice in Wonderland" wowed audiences with their visual affects, sparking a resurgence of 3-D movies.

Now movie-goers can still escape to a 3-D world with Dreamworks' "How to Train Your Dragon."

The boisterous tale has a most unlikely hero - a fire-breathing creature.

In the animated family fantasy, a young heir to a Viking kingdom tries to pass a tough initiation with the help of a dragon that's not like any other you've ever seen.

The film features the voices of America Ferrera, Gerard Butler and Jay Baruchel.

Dreamworks has also generated box office hits including "Shrek," "Madagascar" and "Kung Fu Panda."

Also out is "Chloe," where an idyllic marriage finds itself in jeopardy when a suspicious wife played by Julianne Moore searches for the truth about her husband.

Amanda Seyfried is the escort she hires to test Liam Neeson's fidelity with surprising consequences.

"Both of these women are getting something they're not getting anywhere else," Moore said. "Catherine believes he has found a conduit to her husband and Chloe feels she is being listened to."

"Chloe" contains some intimate scenes between each of the characters.

The intensity is magnified by the fact that Neeson lost his wife, actress Natasha Richardson, to a skiing accident in the midst of filming - prompting the director to call him nothing short of "heroic."

A benign dinner and a movie turn into something much more enthralling after a couple switches identity. Tina Fey and Steve Carrell head a cast of stars, including James Franco and Mark Wahlberg, in this must see adventure-comedy hitting theatres on April 9.
