Opening Friday in theaters

“Poltergeist” (PG-13): The 1982 haunted-house classic by Steven Spielberg and Tobe Hooper gets a CGI-laden remake. Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt are the terrified parents whose daughter disappears into the family TV set. The movie is not being screened in advance for critics, so go ahead: Be afraid.

“Tomorrowland” (PG): The latest feature film based on a Walt Disney theme park attraction looks much more ambitious than usual. Brad Bird (“Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol,” “The Incredibles”) directs George Clooney as a genius inventor who teams up with a brainiac teen to do something that, judging by the enigmatic trailers, may have to do with time travel.
