Opens Friday, Aug 2, 2013 Synopsis: Director Sebastian Cordero (Rage, Pescador) follows a team of intrepid space explorers to one of Jupiter's moons on a mission to investigate evidence of a subterranean ocean that could contain single-celled life in this ambitious sci-fi thriller produced in collaboration with NASA. Determined to explore the possibility that the oceans of Europa could harbor primitive life, a privately funded firm called Europa Ventures assembles six of planet Earth's best astronauts, and sends them deeper into the stars than any human has ever traveled. Should they succeed in reaching their destination and collecting crucial data, mankind could finally have an answer to the age-old question of whether or not we're alone in the universe. In the wake of a frightening technological failure that cuts off all communications with Earth and an unexpected loss that shakes the crew to their very core, the brave astronauts battle physical fatigue and psychological distress before arriving on Europa and making a discovery that could revolutionize our view of the universe -- if they manage to survive the trip back home to tell their incredible story. Sharlto Copley, Michael Nyqvist, and Christian Camargo star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Sharlto Copley, Michael Nyqvist, Christian Camargo, Embeth Davidtz, Dan Fogler Movie Details Play Trailer Movie Review
Opens Friday, Aug 16, 2013 Synopsis: Director Robert Luketic and screenwriter Jason Dean Hall team up to adapt author Joseph Finder's novel centering on a likeable blue-collar worker who becomes a corporate spy for a scheming CEO. Determined to make the most of his new job at Wyatt Telecom, Adam Cassidy (Liam Hemsworth) is horrified after a felonious mistake earns him the wrath of unforgiving CEO Nicholas Wyatt (Gary Oldman). Typically, Wyatt's first response would be to throw a law-breaking employee under the bus. But this time Wyatt is willing to cut a deal; should Adam agree to infiltrate Wyatt Telecom's chief rival, the CEO will turn a blind eye to his employee's error. In no time Adam is climbing the corporate food chain straight to the top. No one suspects a thing, and meanwhile Wyatt is gaining a distinct advantage over the competition. Later, upon realizing that his success is a mere illusion and that he's become a simple pawn in a much bigger game, Adam hatches an ingenious plan to get out of his situation before it's too late. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Liam Hemsworth, Gary Oldman, Harrison Ford, Lucas Till, Amber Heard Movie Details Movie Review

Opens Friday, Jun 21, 2013 Synopsis: A cantankerous retiree discovers an untapped gift while wrestling with the impending death of his beloved wife in this inspirational musical drama from director Paul Andrew Williams. Arthur (Terence Stamp) has shared a fruitful and enduring marriage with his wife Marion (Vanessa Redgrave) when he receives the devastating news that their days together are numbered. But while Marion's condition might be terminal, she chooses to take the diagnosis in stride, doing her best to cherish what remaining time she has with her husband. Meanwhile, Arthur's already dour attitude grows increasingly grim with each passing day. When the senior's choir that Marion sings in shows up at their window one stormy morning to serenade them with Stevie Wonder's "You Are the Sunshine of My Life," Arthur completely loses his cool and snaps at the well-intentioned crooners. His outlook worsens right alongside Marion's health, but when she asks him to be her substitute in the choir, he agrees in an attempt to make her smile. Little does Arthur realize that choir director Elizabeth (Gemma Arterton) favors teaching the group such nontraditional tunes as Motörhead's "Ace of Spades" rather than the tired glee-club standards. In time, something remarkable happens -- Arthur finds his voice and remembers how it feels to truly be alive in the moment. Christopher Eccleston co-stars. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Terence Stamp, Vanessa Redgrave, Christopher Eccleston, Gemma Arterton Movie Details Play Trailer Movie Review
