  • This December, the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves will be brought to an unforgettable conclusion in “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies”, part three in Academy Award-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson’s epic trilogy adaptation of The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.

    The Dwarves of Erebor may have taken back the vast wealth of their homeland on Middle Earth, but after inadvertently unleashing the furious Dragon, Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch) upon the powerless men, women and children of Lake-town, they must now face the consequences.

    Meanwhile Thorin (Richard Armitage), the King Under the Mountain, succumbs to dragon-sickness and becomes infatuated with his search for the legendary Arkenstone, at the expense of his honour and friendships. Bilbo (Martin Freeman) desperately tries to make Thorin see reason and is left with no option but to make a dangerous choice, unaware that even greater dangers lie ahead; unseen by all but Gandalf (Ian McKellen), legions of Orcs are encroaching on the Lonely Mountain, sent forth in a stealth attack by the Dark Lord, Sauron. 

    The new darkness converging on their intensifying conflict forces the Dwarves, Elves and Men to make a decision – unite as one, or be destroyed. Bilbo soon finds himself battling for his life, the lives of his friends and the future of Middle Earth as five great armies descend into war.

    “The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies”, the final movie in the Lord of the Rings series, sees Orlando Bloom return to his role as the Elf Legolas, and he is once again joined by Billy Connolly as Dain, Cate Blanchett as Galadriel, and Stephen Fry as the Master of Lake-town.

    2014 BAFTA Film Award Nomination: Special Visual Effects

    From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures Pacific Rim.

    When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end.  To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. 

    But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju.  On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes - a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi) - who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past.  Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

  • From Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures comes “Man of Steel,”™ starring Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Kal-El/Superman under the direction of Zack Snyder.

    From the uniquely imaginative mind of writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann comes the new big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby. 

    The Great Gatsby follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks.  Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan.  It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits.  As Nick bears witness, within and without of the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.

    Academy Award® nominee DiCaprio (J. Edgar, Aviator) plays Jay Gatsby, with Tobey Maguire starring as Nick Carraway; Oscar® nominee Carey Mulligan (An Education) and Joel Edgerton as Daisy and Tom Buchanan; Isla Fisher and Jason Clarke as Myrtle and George Wilson; and newcomer Elizabeth Debicki as Jordan Baker.  Indian film legend Amitabh Bachchan playing the role of Meyer Wolfsheim.

  • Acclaimed filmmaker Bryan Singer brings to the screen an amazing new take on the classic fairy tale. Jack the Giant Slayer relates the brave exploits of Jack (Nicholas Hoult), a poor young farmhand who unwittingly reopens a gateway between the human world and a fearsome race of giants. 

    Centuries ago, the giants were defeated in a fierce battle with humans, then banished to their remote sky kingdom. But when Jack accidentally causes an enormous beanstalk to take root, his beloved Princess Isabelle is delivered into the clutches of the bloodthirsty giants. Now, with the help of the king’s military commander (Ewan McGregor), this unlikely hero gets a chance to become a legend in this thrill-packed epic filled with high-flying action and pulse-pounding adventure.

  • The first in a trilogy of films based on the enduring masterpiece The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey follows title character Bilbo Baggins, who - along with the Wizard Gandalf and 13 Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield - is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome Dragon Smaug. 

    Their journey will take them into the Wild, through treacherous lands inhabited by Goblins, Orcs and deadly Wargs, as well as a mysterious and sinister figure known only as the Necromancer. Along the path, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of ingenuity and courage that surprise even himself, he also gains possession of a "precious" ring tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways he cannot begin to imagine.
