FAIRFIELD — Saving the world, saving monuments and saving lives are the plots in this weekend’s nationwide movie openings.

“The LEGO Movie,” rated PG, focuses on an ordinary LEGO mistakenly identified as the “Special” – meaning he has to help stop an evil tyrant’s plans to conquer the world.

Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell and Morgan Freeman provide the voices.

George Clooney and Matt Damon head up the cast of “The Monuments Men,” rated PG-13, which tells the story of museum directors, curators and art historians sent into Nazi Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and return them to their rightful owners. It’s based on a true story.

“Vampire Academy,” also PG-13, is based on the books with the same name and looks at two teen girls who attend a hidden boarding school for mortal and peaceful vampires and half-vampire and half-human guardians.

Zoey Deutch, Lucy Fry and Gabriel Byrne star.

Opening in limited release are:

“Cavemen,” a romantic comedy about a ladies man who says goodbye to the hedonistic lifestyle and starts to look for the right girl. It’s rated R and stars Chad Michael Murray.

“Demi-soeur,” about an older pharmacist whose life is disrupted by the intellectually challenged half-sister he didn’t know existed. It’s directed by Josiane Balasko, who also stars as the sister Nenette. It’s not rated.

“A Fantastic Fear of Everything,” which stars Simon Pegg as an author whose research into Victorian serial killers has turned him into a paranoid wreck. It’s rated R.

“A Field in England,” a thriller set during the civil war in 17th century England. An alchemist captures a small group of deserters and forces them to help him find a treasure he believes is buried in the field. It’s not rated.

“Hasee Toh Phasee,” which spans a decade of a relationship between a quirky and rebellious woman and a mischievous male. It’s not rated.

“Kids for Cash,” a documentary about a judge bent on keeping kids in line until one parent questions the motives behind his brand of justice. It’s not rated.

“The Last of the Unjust,” rated PG-13, which reveals a little-known yet fundamental aspect of the Holocaust.

“Love & Air Sex,” a romantic comedy where battle lines are drawn and anything can go down. It’s not rated.

“The Pretty One,” rated R, about a woman who assumes the identity of her twin sister after the latter dies in a car accident.

“The Invisible Woman,” which features Ralph Fiennes as Charles Dickens and Felicity Jones as the happily married mother with whom he had a relationship. Fiennes also directs. It’s rated R.

“The Outsider,” which centers on a British mercenary in search of his missing daughter. Jason Patric and James Caan star. It’s not rated.

“Someone Marry Barry,” which features Damon Wayans Jr. in the story of a three childhood friends who scheme to find a wife for their socially inappropriate pal. It’s not rated.

“Sinbad the Fifth Voyage,” which stars Shahin Sean Solimon as a man tasked with traveling to a desert to save a young woman. Solimon also directs the PG-13 film.

“Nurse,” the story of a woman who saves lives by day and takes them at night by luring cheating men to their death. It’s rated R.
