RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Everyone’s favorite forgetful fish is swimming back onto the big screen, this time as the star of her own movie.

Dory, the lovable, absent-minded fish from “Finding Nemo” is back.  In “Finding Dory,” the fish, voiced again by Ellen Degeneres, is searching for her parents that she has just remembered. Her search takes her to a California aquarium where she meets some other misfit marine life voiced by Ed O’Neill and Kaitlin Olson. The Pixar computer-animated adventure features cameos by Nemo and his dad. It’s rated “PG.”

In “Central intelligence”, Kevin Hart and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson are unlikely partners. They are high school classmates, one a geek the other the big man on campus, that reunite for the 20th reunion,
and end up on the run from federal agents as they search out a shadowy criminal trying to sell state secrets. The comedy, Co-starring Amy Ryan, is rated “PG-13.”

On home video this weekend, you can check out one of the biggest movies of this year: “Zootopia.” The animated adventure follows a young rabbit who is the first of her kind to become a police officer. She faces discrimination and sexism along the way, but she doesn’t let it stop her from uncovering a conspiracy. This subversive, socially aware film works well on numerous levels. The concept is one of the most original ideas I’ve seen in awhile.
