The following movies are new this week at Hermiston Stadium Cinema:

"Hancock," Rated PG-13 - There are heroes, there are superheroes, and then there's Hancock (Will Smith).

With great power comes great responsibility - everyone knows that - everyone, that is, but Hancock.

Edgy, conflicted, sarcastic, and misunderstood, Hancock's well-intentioned heroics might get the job done and save countless lives, but they always seem to leave damage in their wake.

The public has finally had enough - as grateful as they are to have their local hero, the good citizens of Los Angeles are wondering what they ever did to deserve this guy.

Hancock isn't the kind of man who cares what other people think - until the day that he saves the life of PR executive Ray Embrey and the sardonic superhero begins to realize that he may have a vulnerable side after all. Facing that will be Hancock's greatest challenge yet. And the task may prove impossible as Ray's wife, Mary, insists he's a lost cause.

"Kit Kittredge: An American Girl," Rated G - Aspiring reporter Kit Kittredge can't resist bringing home strays, whether it's an abandoned dog or Will and Countee, a pair of young hobos willing to trade work for meals.

Bright, inquisitive and generous, Kit is a born leader. But her happy childhood is abruptly interrupted when her father loses his car dealership and must leave Cincinnati to look for work - leaving his wife and daughter to manage things at home.

When a crime spree sweeps Cincinnati, all signs point to the local hobo camp where Will and Countee live with a group of their impoverished companions.

Kit, who is always on the lookout for a good news story, convinces her new friends to take her to the hobo camp. She writes an article resulting in sympathy for the camp's residents.

But when Kit's home become the latest victims in a string of robberies, the writer's loyalties are tested.

Will is accused of the crimes and, with all of their savings gone, the Kittredges face losing their house to foreclosure. Determined to recover the stolen money and believing Will is innocent, Kit recruits her friends to help her track down the real culprit. Together they uncover a plot that goes far beyond Cincinnati.
