Crime/Thriller – PG-13
CIA officer Claire Stenwick and MI6 agent Ray Koval have left the world of government intelligence to cash in on the highly profitable cold war raging between two rival multinational corporations. Their mission? Secure the formula for a product that will bring a fortune to the company that patents it first. For their employers – industry titan Howard Tully and buccaneer CEO Dick Garsik – nothing is out of bounds. But as the stakes rise, the mystery deepens and the tactics get dirtier, the trickiest secret for Claire and Ray is their growing attraction. And as they each try to stay one double-cross ahead, two career loners find their schemes endangered by the only thing they can’t cheat their way out of: love.

I Love You, Man

In I You Love, Man, Peter Klaven is a successful real estate agent who, upon getting engaged to the woman of his dreams, Zooey, discovers, to his dismay and chagrin, that he has no male friend close enough to serve as his best man. Peter immediately sets out to rectify the situation, embarking on a series of bizarre and awkward “man-dates,” before meeting Sydney Fife, a charming, opinionated man with whom he instantly bonds. But the closer the two men get, the more Peter’s relationship with Zooey suffers, ultimately forcing him to choose between his fiancée and his new found “bro,” in a story that comically explores what it truly means to be a “friend.”

Drama/Mystery – PG-13
When Professor Ted Myles’ son returns home from school with a piece of paper that had been buried in a time capsule for 50 years, he makes a startling discovery.

With time running out, Ted’s attempts to alert the authorities fall on deaf ears so he takes it upon himself to try to prevent more destruction – and perhaps the ultimate disaster – from taking place.
•Directed by: Alex Proyas.
•Cast: Nicolas Cage, Rose Byrne, Ben Mendelsohn, Chandler Canterbury, Adrienne Pickering, Tamara Donnellan and Brett Robson.
