1. The Odd Life of Timothy Green (Disney, 2,551 Theaters, 100 Minutes, Rated PG): This marks a return of sorts to the type of films Disney used to make. I recall a lot of their output from when I was a kid was family friendly fare with a hint of sci-fi or fantasy to it (i.e. The Computer Who Wore Tennis Shoes, Escape From Witch Mountain, The Shaggy D.A.)
This film focuses on a childless couple (Joel Edgerton & Jennifer Garner) who write down everything they want in a child into a box and bury the box in their backyard. Not long after, a 10-year-old boy (CJ Adams), covered in dirt and with leaves growing on his legs, knocks at their door claiming to be their son.
The film was co-written by Ahmet Zappa, of all people. That explains the esoteric concept.
