From the authors of The Hangover, comes this brand-new light entertainment movie featuring Amy (Mila Kunis) with a seemingly perfect life of a wonderful marriage, over-achieving children, attractive house and successful career. But contrary to outward appearences, Amy is over-worked and over-stretched to the point that she’s on the verge of snapping. Deciding to take matters into her own hands, she signs up with two other over-stressed mothers on a quest to free themselves from all the traditional obligations of being a mother. The moms embark on a wild, un-mom-like over-indulgence of partying and debauchery, setting themselves on a collision course with straight-living head PTA mom, Gwendolyn and her inner circle of committed sidekicks.
Hell or High Water
A tale detailing the clash of the Old and New Wild West.

The heists soon become part of a desperate plan to reclaim a future that powerful pressures outside their control have stolen right from under them. All goes according to plan until they end up as the main target of an unrelenting, coarse Texas Ranger (Jeff Bridges) who is searching for one final accomplishment before retiring. As the siblings prepare for a final bank heist, a showdown awaits them with the last righteous law man in the land.
The Girl on the Train
An all-star cast featuring Emily Blunt, Rebecca Ferguson, Justin Theroux, and Lisa Kudrow appear in this thriller from DreamWorks Pictures. Directed by Tate Taylor from ‘The Help‘ amd ‘Get on Up‘, as well as well-known producer Marc Platt, from ‘Bridge of Spies‘ and ‘Into the Woods‘, The Girl on the Train focuses on the character Rachel (Emily Blunt), who has lately been suffering from the effects of her current marital breakup, and uses her everyday train commute to day-dream about the ideal couple that she sees living in a home along side the railway track. Then one early morning she sees something alarming there before finding herself embroiled within the sordid affairs of this ‘ideal’ couple. Based upon the successful book by Paula Hawkins, The Girl on the Train is a modified version of the book that has been adapted for the big screen.
Star Trek Beyond
“Star Trek Beyond,” the eagerly awaited sequel in the globally sought-after Star Trek franchise, developed by Gene Roddenberry and then taken on by J.J. Abrams in 2009, comes back to the big screen this time under the tutelage of movie director Justin Lin (of “The Fast and the Furious” movies). As always the Star Trek movie details the legendary voyage of the U.S.S. Enterprise and her brave crew as they explore the outermost regions of undiscovered space. In this sequel, the crew come across an all new adversary that challenges the Federation’s very survival.
Tireless secondary school student Vee Delmonico (Emma Roberts) has had enough of living her life in the shadows. When encouraged by friends to join the online video game community, by subscribing to Nerve, the latest online trend, Vee agrees to carry out only one dare in the game in what, to all intents and purposes, looks like just a harmless bit of fun. But as she becomes more and more engrossed with the adventure of the adrenaline-fueled game, partnered with a almost mystical character (Dave Franco), the online game starts to take on a decidedly more threatening feel with significantly more dangerous acts, eventually leading Vee into a high-stakes finale that will decide her entire future.
The documentary “Beyond The Edge” released in 2014 successfully recreated Edmund Hillary’s 1953 ascent of Mount Everest in stunning videography. This particular true-life tragedy plays almost like a follow up to that heroic movie, and finesses it with much more awesome visuals of the most inhospitable place on land, making use of real-life video footage shot on the mountain range together with skilfully chosen movie scenes. The story is essentially an illustrated variation of a chiding supplied early on in the movie by the guide to the overly-enthusiastic visitors in that the lower slopes of Everest with its treacherous ice crevasses, are actually more hazardous to traverse than the higher altitudes, but the lack of air and severe cold at the top of the mountain make it hostile to life. This tale of the 1996 ascent is fascinating, but the portrayal spreads the focus too widely and packs in way too many celebrity cameos and the film uses too much space for recounting the contrast between opposing guides Scott Fischer and Rob Hall. In addition, spouses Jan Hall (Keira Knightley) and Peach Weathers (Robin Wright) as well as Helen Wilton (Emily Watson), the base camp supervisor and doctor Caroline Mackenzie (Elizabeth Devicki) all stand around too much without doing anything until the snowstorm covers them.
