Seeking a big honking Easter basket full of WTF for this glorious spring holiday season? Here’s Hop, a bizarre mishmash of animation and live action covered in a hard candy shell of incoherence and crassness. It’s not exactly Willy Wonka-esque, but it’s trying to be. Fred, ahem, O’Hare (James Marsden) would like to be the Easter Bunny. And the new Easter Bunny (the voice of Russell Brand) would prefer not to be. Cue mayhem and the shitting of jelly beans. Seriously. (MJ) Rated PG | SHOWTIMES

The house is haunted. No, the kid is haunted. But the kid is comatose. Maybe he’s both comatose and haunted. I’ll tell ya who’s going to be haunted for the rest of their lives because they starred in this ParaPolterNormalGeist knockoff: Patrick Wilson (Watchmen, Angels in America) and Rose Byrne (Damages, 28 Weeks Later). Meanwhile, the official website of Insidious is offering, as “documentation,” doctored photos and fake audiotapes. Not scary. (MB) Rated PG-13 | SHOWTIMES

On a fast-moving train, Captain Colter Stevens jolts awake. There’s this woman who seems to know him, but she keeps calling him Sean. Then the train explodes. Then he’s in some weird science lab, and they’re telling him that he has to go back, stop the bomber and save the train — over and over and over again. Jake Gyllenhaal has the frantic-hero thing goin’ on, and director Duncan Jones once again brings us sci-fi spookery (just as he did with the lonely guy on a lunar base in Moon). (ES) Rated PG-13 | SHOWTIMES
