  • Explosive action, baffling mystery and astonishing intrigue follow Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) and his trusted ally Watson (Jude Law) in a race to uncover and foil a terrifying plot that threatens to destroy the country. 

    Director Guy Ritchie helms the all-action adventure reintroducing the great detective to the World. Robert Downey Jr. is the new Sherlock Holmes!

  • “I was born under unusual circumstances.” And so begins The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, adapted from the 1920s story by F. Scott Fitzgerald about a man who is born in his eighties and ages backward.

    From his birth in New Orleans in 1918, across the high seas, through the bombing of Pearl Harbour, and back home again – Benjamin’s journey is as extraordinary yet as common as any man’s life can be. Directed by David Fincher (Zodiac, Fight Club) and starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett as the time-crossed soul mates Benjamin and Daisy, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is a time-traveller’s epic adventure into the joys of life, the sadness of death and a love that endures beyond time.

  • Korean War vet and retired autoworker Walt Kowalski doesn’t much like how his life or his neighbourhood has turned out. He especially doesn’t like the people next door, Hmong immigrants from Southeast Asia. But events force Walt to defend those neighbours against a local gang that feeds on violence and fear. 

    For the first time since Million Dollar Baby, Clint Eastwood works on both sides of the camera, winning the National Board of Review Award as Best Actor for his bone-deep playing of Kowalski, burnished with experience, grace and gravitas into a “prime vintage Eastwood performance” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone).

  • He was imprisoned 27 years for his heroic fight against apartheid. So what does Nelson Mandela do after he is elected president of South Africa? He rejects revenge, forgives his oppressors and finds hope of national unity in an unlikely place: the rugby field. 

    Clint Eastwood (the National Board of Review’s 2009 Best Director choice) powerfully directs an uplifting film about a team and a people inspired to greatness.  In a performance that won him NBR’s Best Actor Award and an Oscar® nomination, Morgan Freeman portrays Mandela, who asks the national rugby team captain (Best Supporting Actor Oscar® nominee Matt Damon) and his underdog squad to do the impossible and win the World Cup. One team, one country. The universal language of sports has never spoken so thrillingly as in Eastwood’s Invictus.

  • The filmmakers behind The Matrix and V for Vendetta bring new blood (lots of it!) to martial arts movies in Ninja Assassin. Korean pop star Rain (Speed Racer) stars as heroic, deadly Raizo.

    Trained from childhood in the way of the Ozunu Clan ninja, he is stalked by fellow warriors for breaking free of them and their iron-willed dojo patriarch (martial arts legend Sho Kosugi)... and is on the run with a Europol agent (Naomie Harris) who has proof the clan sells assassination services to governments. The action is start-to-finish – fast, fierce, filled with weaponry (chains, swords, staffs, shuriken) and awesome athleticism. Fear not the weapon, but the hand that wields it.

  • It seemed like a typical day for 10-year-old Ben Tennyson - transform into an alien hero, defeat the bad guy, and maintain the balance of good vs. evil in the universe.  

    But when Ben accidentally sets the Omnitrix to detonate, a typical day turns into a race across the galaxy to locate the creator of the Omnitrix before it wipes out the entire solar system!

  • Nine-year-old Max runs away from home and sails across the sea to become king of a wondrous realm of gigantic fuzzy monsters – but being king may not be as carefree as it looks! 

    Filmmaker Spike Jonze directs a magical, visually astonishing film version of Maurice Sendakʼs celebrated classic exploring the joyous and wild rumpus of the time and place we call childhood.

  • A creepy, darkly comic celebration of the scariest night of the year from producer Bryan Singer (director of X-Men and Superman Returns) and writer-director Michael Dougherty (co-scripter of X2 and Superman Returns). 

    Trick ’R Treat takes the Creepshow/Tales from the Crypt approach to wicked new depths with four interwoven tales set on Halloween night: a high school principal (Dylan Baker) moonlights as a vicious serial killer; the quest of a young virgin (Anna Paquin) for that special someone takes a gruesome turn; a group of teens carries out a cruel prank with disastrous consequences; and a irritable old man (Brian Cox) battles a mischievous trick-or-treating demon.

  • A desperate solution for a troubled country: Lex Luthor for President with the Justice League in the service of the government. Only Batman and Superman stand against the new regime – and their disloyalty proves to be exactly what Luthor intended. 

    Using their outcast status to instigate a scandal against Superman, Luthor finally tastes a victory in his vendetta against the Man of Steel. From Executive Producer Bruce Timm and voiced by the cast from both hit Batman and Superman animated TV series including Kevin Conroy, Tim Daly and Clancy Brown, this DC Universe Original Animated Movie based on Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness’s popular graphic novel seethes with political intrigue and action-packed battles between heroes all believing they’re on the right side of the law.

  • Eleven-year-old Toe Thompson already thinks his neighbourhood is weird... but it's about to get a whole lot weirder! Toe (Jimmy Bennett) serves as the designated punching bag for the bullies of the suburban community of Black Falls, where, during a freak storm, a mysterious Rainbow Rock falls from the sky and grants wishes to anyone who finds it. 

    As the Rock ricochets around the town--from kid to kid and parent to parent--wishes gone wrong quickly turn the neighbourhood upside down in a wild rampage of everything from tiny aliens to giant boogers. A multi-generational ensemble cast including Emmy nominee Jon Cryer (Two and a Half Men), Oscar nominee William H. Macy (Fargo), Leslie Mann (Knocked Up) and three-time Emmy winner James Spader headlines this comedy adventure for all ages from Robert Rodriguez (Spy Kids).
