October DVD, Streaming, and Theater Releases

Common Sense Media shares what you need to know about the movies available in October on DVD and streaming, plus a preview of Pan.

Avengers: Age of Ultron, Tomorrowland, and Jurassic World are all set to be released on DVD and streaming in October. While they're touted as family-friendly movies, they're best left for older kids. Common Sense Media shares its rating of the movies, what ages should see the movies, and a brief synopsis. Plus, we've got a preview of the new adaptation of Pan, starring Levi Miller and Hugh Jackman.

Superheroes re-team for an entertaining, action-packed sequel.


Tomorrowland (PG)

This visually exciting sci-fi adventure has unexpected violence.


Jurassic World (PG-13)
three stars

Release Date: Oct. 20
Recommended Age: 13+
The reboot is fun but scarier and more violent than the original.


In Theaters Oct. 9: Pan

Parents need to know that Pan is a live-action origin story set during World War II about Peter Pan and Captain Hook. A band of pirates kidnaps an orphan (newcomer Levi Miller) and takes him to Neverland, where he must save the land from the deadly pirate Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman). Given the popularity of recent adaptations of Cinderella and Maleficient, not to mention the world’s enduring fascination with the boy who won’t grow up, this non-musical retelling should be a perfect pick for families looking for a rousing adventure.
