Six new movies are in redbox kiosks today, and four star-studded oldies but goodies have arrived as well.

Here’s the rundown:


In this modern-day take on Beauty and the Beast (loosely based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Alex Finn), obnoxious high school student Kyle gets cursed by a fellow classmate who just so happens to be a witch. He goes into hiding after she transforms him from a blond stud into a grotesque albino freak, and if he can’t find anyone to love him for who he really is, then his good looks and privileged lifestyle will be gone forever.

Genre: Romance, Drama

Starring: Alex Pettyfer, Vanessa Hudgens, Mary-Kate Olsen, Neil Patrick Harris, Peter Krause

It’s Val Kilmer again! This time he’s one of the sons of E. F. Bloodworth, a country singer who returns home after leaving his family in favor of a life on the road. (It’s been 40 years since he took off, so, um, the reunion isn’t exactly a happy one.)

    I had seen Mao’s Last Dancer on rent. It’s an exceptionally good dance film however the story is derived. Decent performances. Great ballet and good messages to take away. A film that I would recommend for people who love ballet or born in China, and now live in United States. Mao’s Last Dancer is a beautiful film. It’s worth a $1 + tax!
