Charlie Wilson’s War – Academy Award® winners Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts and Philip Seymour Hoffman star in this compelling and witty film from Oscar-winning director Mike Nichols and Primetime Emmy®-winning writer Aaron Sorkin. Based on the outrageous true story, Charlie Wilson’s War shows how one congressman who loved a good time, one Houston socialite who loved a good cause and one renegade CIA agent who loved a good fight, conspired to bring about the largest covert operation in history.
Friday Night Lights – From Oscar®-winning producer Brian Grazer and based on the best-selling book about high school football, Friday Night Lights dramatizes the 1988 season of the Permian High Panthers of Odessa, Texas. A town for sale, Odessa has seen better days. Yet one hope sustains the community where, once a week during the fall, the town and its dreams come alive beneath the dazzling Friday night lights. The film provides an illuminating look at the big dreams of small town people. Starring Academy Award® winner Billy Bob Thornton, Derek Luke, Jay Hernandez, Lucas Black, Garrett Hedlund, and Tim McGraw.
IT (2017) – New Line Cinema’s horror thriller IT, directed by Andy Muschietti (“Mama”), is based on the hugely popular Stephen King novel of the same name, which has been terrifying readers for decades. The film tells the story of seven young outcasts growing up in the township of Derry, Maine, who call themselves “the Losers’ Club.” Each of them has been ostracized for one reason or another; each has a target on their back from the local pack of bullies…and all have seen their inner fears come to life in the form of an ancient shapeshifting predator they can only call It. For as long as their town has existed, Derry has been the entity’s hunting ground, emerging from the sewers every 27 years to feed on the terrors of its chosen prey: Derry’s children. Banding together over one horrifying and exhilarating summer, the Losers form a close bond to help them overcome their own fears and stop a new killing cycle that began on a rainy day, with a small boy chasing a paper boat as it swept down a storm drain…and into the hands of Pennywise the Clown.
The Monuments Men – In a race against time, a crew of art historians and museum curators unite to recover renowned works of art stolen by Nazis before Hitler destroys them.
Now You See Me – Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Morgan Freeman, and Jesse Eisenberg give astonishing performances in this visually stunning thriller from the director of “Clash of the Titans.” As individual performers, these magicians are amazing. But once they join forces, they begin captivating an international audience with a series of bold, original heists—all the while pursuing a secret agenda that has the FBI and Interpol scrambling to anticipate what their next spectacular crime will be.
Now You See Me 2 – The Four Horsemen return for a second mind-bending adventure, elevating the limits of stage illusion to new heights and taking them around the globe. One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their Robin Hood-style magic spectacles, the illusionists resurface for a comeback performance in hopes of exposing the unethical practices of a tech magnate. The man behind their vanishing act is none other than Walter Mabry (Daniel Radcliffe), a tech prodigy who threatens the Horsemen into pulling off their most impossible heist yet. Their only hope is to perform one last unprecedented stunt to clear their names and reveal the mastermind behind it all.
Role Models – Prepare yourself for the most irreverent and funny comedy that brings new meaning to juvenile delinquency! As the world’s least-likely mentors, Danny (Paul Rudd) & Wheeler (Seann William Scott) must put aside their selfish, sarcastic and party-driven ways in order to give two odd, foul-mouthed kids invaluable wisdom about life, love and heavy metal. With a supporting cast of comic all-stars including Elizabeth Banks, Jane Lynch, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Bobb’e J. Thompson.
The Wedding Date – In this sparkling romantic comedy, Debra Messing plays a never-married New Yorker who is invited to her parents’ London home for her younger sister’s wedding. In a desperate attempt to face the ordeal with dignity, she hires a charming and handsome professional male escort (Dermot Mulroney), to pose as her new boyfriend. Over the course of the weekend, this beau-for-hire takes on the role of the bride’s therapist, the father’s ideal son-in-law, the groom’s new best friend and the object of every woman’s affection. But for the woman who hired him, what starts out as a pretend relationship begins to turn into something entirely unexpected: a second chance at love.
Weird Science – Teen life is full of mysteries, but nothing is more hilarious than Weird Science, the out-of-this-world comedy that helped define a generation! Join two socially challenged computer whizzes (Anthony Michael Hall and Ilan Mitchell-Smith) as they set out to create the “perfect woman” (supermodel Kelly LeBrock). Like a computer-generated fairy godmother, the duo’s heavenly creation guides the pair through the pleasures and pitfalls of teenage life. From writer/director John Hughes (The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles), Weird Science is an outrageous coming-of-age guilty pleasure where every teenage boy’s fantasy comes to life.
