Dr. Paul Kersey (Bruce Willis) is a surgeon who only sees the aftermath of his city's violence as it's rushed into his ER -until his wife (Elisabeth Shue) and college-age daughter (Camila Morrone) are viciously attacked in their suburban home. With the police overloaded with crimes, Paul, burning for revenge, hunts for his family's assailants to deliver justice. As the anonymous slayings of criminals grabs the media's attention, the city wonders if this deadly avenger is a guardian angel...or a grim reaper. Fury and fate collide in the intense action-thriller Death Wish.
After making a powerful debut in CAPTAIN AMERICA: WINTER SOLDIER, King T’Challa/Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) returns to the big screen in a powerhouse solo movie. Taking place in the secluded, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda, BLACK PANTHER sees T’Challa battling the combined forces of exile Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) and arms dealer Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis). With the aid of the CIA and Wakanda’s all-female special forces, T’Challa must battle his new foes for the future of the country - and the world.
Celebrated director Ryan Coogler (CREED, FRUITVALE STATION) continues his run of telling great black stories in BLACK PANTHER. The Marvel Cinematic Universe's first movie entirely about a person of color, it's an adventure laden with espionage, action, and textured with imaginative Afrofuturist designs.
With a dynamite cast including Lupita Nyong’o, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Danai Gurira, BLACK PANTHER is an exciting new chapter in the Marvel saga - and a critical lead-up to Summer 2018’s AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR.
Taraji P. Henson is Mary, a no-nonsense contract killer for a powerful Boston crime family. She takes out her targets with relish and efficiency, moving onto the next with ruthless professionalism. But when a job goes wrong and Mary's bullets leave a young boy orphaned, she is forced for the first time to care for a life instead of taking it.
Academy Award nominee Henson (HIDDEN FIGURES) takes no prisoners in this rip-roaring action extravaganza. Taking cues from both classic blaxploitation films like FOXY BROWN and modern hyperkinetic actioners like JOHN WICK, PROUD MARY is a feast of leather, guns, booze, and cars, driven by one of the great actresses of our time. A blast of action cinema for today's audiences, the fiery PROUD MARY keeps on burnin’ til the credits roll.
Twenty-six-year-old Molly Bloom (Jessica Chastain, ZERO DARK THIRTY, THE HELP) operated the world’s most exclusive underground poker game for a decade. Her clientele included the Hollywood elite, Wall Street tycoons, pro athletes - and the Russian mob. When Molly becomes the target of a high-level FBI investigation, she turns to defense attorney Charlie Jaffey (Idris Elba, THE MOUNTAIN BETWEEN US, THE WIRE) to help tell her story and exonerate her.
The directorial debut of Aaron Sorkin, the Academy Award-winning writer behind THE SOCIAL NETWORK, STEVE JOBS, and THE WEST WING, MOLLY’S GAME is an incredible true story of crime, deceit, glamor, and greed. Sorkin adapts Bloom’s own memoir with his trademark intricate dialogue and whirlwind pacing, while adding a layer of courtroom intrigue to the proceedings.
Two-time Academy Award nominee Chastain delivers a performance every bit as forceful as Sorkin’s dialogue, leading a cast that also includes Michael Cera and Kevin Costner. From Hollywood to Wall Street, MOLLY’S GAME cuts deep into the dark heart of American ambition - and the criminal forces that keep it pumping.
Alexander Payne brilliantly returns to the big screen with a masterpiece-in-miniature. With DOWNSIZING, the director of NEBRASKA and THE DESCENDANTS once again elevates the game with a trademark razor-sharp satire that squarely positions him as one of the finest filmmakers working today.
Set in a near-future where miniaturization has become a solution to overpopulation and extinction of resources, doughy middle-aged Paul (Matt Damon) and his doting wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) make the big leap to go small and downsize... in dramatic fashion. Desperate to shake the shackles of his mundane existence, Paul pursues the process of "cellular miniaturization" in an attempt to grasp the better life that's long looked to be out of his reach. As always with Payne, things don’t always go to plan as he expertly blends social satire with slivers of science fiction and a perfectly orchestrated crew of performers.
And what a cast he’s assembled. Matt Damon eschews his action hero past and shows off his supreme versatility and Kristen Wiig shines in a big screen role that finally expresses her vast range and depth. Plus, DOWNSIZING features exemplary performances from an all-star array of talent, including Laura Dern, Christoph Waltz, and an absolutely stand-out showing from Hong Chau.
Payne has long shown his affection for the mediocrity of middle-aged masculinity. From ELECTION to SIDEWAYS to ABOUT SCHMIDT, he's reveled in the American everyman to glorious effect, and with DOWNSIZING he's reached new heights. Only in his hands could going small be so big.
