  • You know the movies. You know the man. The Terminator. Total Recall. Terminator 2: Judgment Day. True Lies. Now add another spectacular, effects-filled Arnold Schwarzenegger action smash to the list. 

    The Dynamic superstar plays John Kruger, a U.S. Marshal who “erases” the lives and identities of people entering the Witness Protection Program, Kruger must protect an executive (Vanessa Williams) who’s uncovered a deal to put a new superweapon in the wrong hands. It’s a do-or-die assignment. So Kruger makes sure he does in a non-stop action spree that includes plunging from an aeroplane after his parachute, turning ravenous alligators into instant luggage, outbraining ultra-tech security and out-brawning killers with hypervelocity weapons. For power-packed excitement, Eraser is unstoppable.

  • Ante up – for laughter and action aplenty! Mel Gibson is sly gambler Bret Maverick, Jodie Foster is a charming scam artist and James Garner (the original Bret Maverick from the Emmy-winning TV series) is a laid-back lawman in Maverick, the crowd-pleasing hit that deals you a winning hand.

    With more twists than a switchback trail and more sleights of hand than a shell game, Maverick is rollicking proof of how the West was fun. A riverboat poker tourney promises a winner-take-all $500,000... and Bret aims to be the winner who does the taking! But first he must cope with the hangman’s noose, a runaway stage, a wily Indian chief, outlaws, ingrates, a bagful of rattlesnakes and more close calls than a long-tailed cat in a roomful of rocking chairs. So don’t miss the excitement. The jokers – Gibson, Foster and Garner – are wild!

  • They are fast friends and worse foes. One is Billy the Kid (Kris Kristofferson), a law unto himself. The other is the law: Sheriff Pat Garrett (James Coburn), who once rode with Billy. 

    Set to a bristling score by Bob Dylan (who also plays Billy’s sidekick Alias) and with a Who’s Who of iconic Western players, Sam Peckinpah’s saga of one of the West’s great legends is now restored to its intended glory. For the first time since it left the cutting room, the film has the balance of action and character development Peckinpah wanted, a mix of fury and elegy based on the director’s notes and the insights of colleagues. The difference is profound, as different as an untouched target and a bull’s-eye.
