Despite what its name suggests, Animal Kingdom is not a documentary about the Disney theme park of the same name — far from it. Rather, Animal Kingdom is an Australian film about Joshua “J” Cody (James Frecheville), a teenager who has to move in with his criminal relatives after his mother dies. As his grandmother (Jacki Weaver) and three uncles (Joel Edgerton, Luke Ford, and Ben Mendelsohn) engage in an all-out war with the Armed Robbery Squad, J finds himself caught in the middle and has to figure out how to get himself out.

The most recent film in the X-Men series, X-Men: First Class delves into the background of mutants Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Erik Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender). Interestingly, the two had great control over their mutant abilities when they became friends, and they use their abilities to find and train new mutants. Xavier and Lehnsherr also ally themselves with the U.S. government to try to prevent the war that villain (and mutant) Sebastian Shaw (Kevin Bacon) is trying to start.
