There is a new femme fatale in town and her name is Lucy! Scarlett Johansson is taking the action genre by storm once again as a femme fatale armed with nothing more than the full capacity of her brain. Lucy is an exhilarating film which combines the thrills of the action genre with psychological suspense, and even lessons in quantum physics. The story begins when Lucy is unwittingly forced to become an international drug mule hoping to capitalize on a mysterious blue substance initially believed to be an illegal substance. After being injured the chemical substance begins to leak into her body systems and super charges her brain. As the film progresses we watch the count as she gains more and more power as she is able to use higher pecentages of her brain power. What happens when she reaches 100% is nothing short of a spiritual experience.
We are happy to announce the third and final installment of the franchise has an official release date! It has been announced via Entertainment Weekly the following:

The annual Purge is back, and set ten years in the future–The Purge 2: Anarchy! This time around the action moves outside to the streets, where it seems like any and everything is happening. There are hunters with dogs, violent bike gangs kidnapping and killing anyone on the streets, burning buses, and even crazed rich people hiring and paying people to be killed. This inevitable sequel really pushes the envelope by expanding the cast. Four strangers caught on the streets in the midst of the madness are led by local police sergeant, Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo), hoping to survive the night. Leo, unlike, his wards is actually participating in The Purge for his own mysterious reasons. He is nothing short an anti-hero, eerily reminiscent of Marvel Comics, Frank Castle, also known as “The Punisher.” Interestingly, not everyone is a fan of The Purge, a faction, led by Carmelo is determined to take down the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA) and end The Purge. It is literally war!
Any child of the eighties remembers the cartoons. ThunderCats, He-Man & The Masters of The Universe, She-Ra, and even The Bionic 6! However, none of these comes close to the power and popularity of four mean, green, and shelled crimefighters–The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT)! After more than a decade off screen in live action the Turtles, Master Splinter, April O’Neal, and The Shredder are back and as awesome as ever!

Then I am sure you can relate all over again to the zany characters in “Horrible Bosses 2!” Yes Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis are back with a vengeance. In the 2011 film we all eagerly watched and silently agreed with our favorite guys that their overbearing and needy bosses needed to be taken down a peg! This time around, the guys have banded together to become entrepreneurs and their own bosses.

Desperate to get it back and even with him, they kidnap his adult son and hold him for ransom!
“Into The Storm” is the latest film to show the true wrath of Mother Nature! This film has no action stars, no stunt doubles, super villains, or flashy cars. However, it has lighting, tornadoes, widespread death and destruction, and a body count so high you would think you were watching a season of HBO’s “True Blood!” Set in the fictional town of “Silverton,” over the span of a day; the area is decimated by an unprecendented number of tornadoes. There are so many that the town looks like an apocalypse!
This will be one exciting film as it once again shows the point of view of storm chasers–people who make their living by getting up close pictures of life threatening storms. Although it sounds simple enough, it is hard to focus a camera when you could possibly be sucked into a vortex. Interestingly, Steven Quale, the director of “Into The Storm” also directed “Final Destination 5.” This could be possibly be a clue that there will be some gory deaths in this film, maybe “Final Destination” style. From the trailers, and the looks of those twisters some one is bound to die –and violently!

All remaining Transformers on Earth, Autobot and Decepticon, are hunted down for the metal they are composed to learn the secret of their ability to transform. Optimus manages to escape, but unwittingly becomes involved with a human family, headed by novice inventor, Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg). Now human and Autobot alike must once again align themselves against threats to humanity both Earth born and extraterrestrial!

Thompson) a lame high schooler desperate to join his cousin, Day-Day’s (Dashawn Blanks) rap/dance group known as “The Rangers.” There’s just one problem–to do so he has to get the panties of his dream girl, Anastacia.
