Teenager Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron) is surviving on his own, virtually homeless, when he is spotted on the street by Leigh Anne Tuohy (Sandra Bullock). Learning that the young man is one of her daughters classmates, Leigh Anne insists that Michael—wearing shorts and a t-shirt in the dead of winter—come out of the cold. Without a moments hesitation, she invites him to stay at the Tuohy home for the night. What starts out as a gesture of kindness turns into something more as Michael becomes part of the Tuohy family despite the differences in their backgrounds.

Living in his new environment, the teen faces a completely different set of challenges to overcome. And as the family helps Michael fulfill his potential, both on and off the football field, Michaels presence in the Tuohys lives leads them to some insightful self-discoveries of their own. Based, apparently, on a true story.

Out on March 12

The A-Team' trailer is out. Joe Carnahan's big-screen remake of the 1980s television series is full of subtlety, intense dialogue and gentle romance. Or a lot of explosion and nostalgia for 'children' of a certain ageexplosive action and includes team members Liam Neeson, Sharlto Copley, Bradley Cooper and a mohawked Quintin "Rampage" Jackson.

And the same tagline as Marks and Spencers, oddly - there is no plan B.

Out in July.
