What would you do if your child went missing? That is the question facing Keller Dover (Hugh Jackman) in Prisoners after his six-year old daughter Anna and her friend Joy disappear. As the hours drag on, Detective Loki (Jake Gyllenhall) is brought in to solve the case. Tension erupts between the two immediately. Dover, a deer-hunting survivalist, suspects that the brash young detective isn’t giving the case his full attention. When Loki releases their only suspect due to lack of evidence, Dover decides that he will have to take matters into his own hands.


Desperate times call for desperate measures. With his child’s life at stake, Dover kidnaps their only suspect and begins to torture him for information. The frantic Dover is willing to do whatever it takes to bring back his daughter, but as the captivity continues, Dover begins to wonder if he has the right man. In his race for answers, has he turned himself into the very monster he wants to destroy? What cost must he pay to ensure his daughter’s safety?


Written by Aaron Guzikowski and directed by Denis Villeneuve, Prisoners will open in theaters on September 20, 2013. This Warner Bros. Pictures thriller also stars Terrence Howard, Viola Davis, Melissa Leo, and Paul Dano.

Pacific Rim

Pacific Rim

“We always thought that alien life would come from the stars. We never considered it might come from deep beneath the sea.” In Pacific Rim it is the near future, and monstrous creatures called Kaiju have been swarming out of the Pacific Ocean, sparking a years-long war that has cost humanity millions of lives and billions of dollars. Mankind’s greatest weapons against the Kaiju are the Jaegers, giant robots controlled by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even these fearsome constructions are proving powerless against the relentless assault of the Kaiju. Exhausted and on the brink of destruction, humanity’s leaders have no choice but to turn to an unlikely duo for help—a washed-up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi) piloting a legendary but obsolete Jaeger from the early days. Will their power be enough to save mankind from total annihilation?

Conceived as director Guillermo del Toro’s “beautiful poem to giant monsters,” Pacific Rim promises a compelling storyline and fantastic visual effects. “The Kaiju counted on the humans to hide, to give up, to fail,” rallies the leader of the human forces. “But today, we are canceling the apocalypse.”

Part ghost story and part 1970s New England biopic, The Conjuring is director James Wan’s latest horror offering, following Insidious and Saw. “I put the things that scare me up on screen,” says Wan, “and that’s kind of like my therapy.” The film is based on the true story of the Perron family, who hired the Warrens to cleanse the evil spirits that had been haunting their home. But what can two people do against such powerful forces?

Refusing to step down, Gus is given one last assignment to try to prove his worth to the organization: to scout out a top new prospect in North Carolina. However, because the front office of the Braves has serious doubts about his judgment, Gus’ boss and friend Pete (John Goodman) asks Gus’ daughter Mickey (Amy Adams) to join him on the trip and make sure he doesn’t make a fool of himself.

Cloud Atlas

Cloud Atlas movie poster

Everything is connected. Past, present, future. What you do in your life has consequences beyond what you may have imagined. Every decision you make may be important.

Argo Movie Poster

Sometimes there are no options, and you are faced with going with the best “bad idea” on the table. This was the case in 1979, after Iranian militants stormed the US embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. Based on true events, Argo tells the little-known story of the six members of the U.S. foreign service who managed to slip out a back door when the revolutionaries stormed the embassy, escaping to the residence of the Canadian Ambassador. With armed revolutionary guards going door-to-door, however, they knew that they would not be safe for long.

Ben Affleck in Argo

Against this backdrop CIA “exfiltration” specialist Tony Mendez (portrayed by Ben Affleck) concocted a crazy and very risky plan to get these Americans out of the country. His idea: create a fake science fiction movie named “Argo,” and convince Iran that these six people are members of the film crew that is in Iran to scout the area for filming.

Ben Affleck in Argo

Argo is scheduled for release on October 12, 2012 by Warner Bros. Pictures.

Sean Penn in The Gangster Squad

Sitting at the head of an illicit money-making machine, Mickey Cohen is raking in the dough from a full range of criminal activity. From drugs and guns to prostitutes and wire bets, all dollars flow his way. To make matters worse, Cohen is operating under the protection of the police and politicians who are under his control. Until, that is, a small group of LAPD outsiders decide to take back the city and tear Cohen’s world apart.

The Campaign

The Campaign Movie poster

For long-term congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell), winning had always come easy. Since he had never had an opponent, all he had to do to clinch the race was sign the registration documents. Until now. After committing a major public gaffe just prior to launching his fifth “campaign” for Congress, handsome and charismatic Cam is shocked to learn that he won’t be running unopposed after all. Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), the director of the local Tourism Center and a complete political neophyte, will be on the ballot as well – backed and handpicked by a pair of ultra-wealthy CEOs who are bent on gaining influence over their small North Carolina district.

The Campaign

At first blush naïve Marty seems like a strange choice for the wealthy benefactors to have made. But with their support, Marty’s family’s political connections and a cutthroat campaign manager, Marty gives Cam plenty of reasons to lose sleep at night. With ethics dropping ever lower and insults escalating by the day, their congressional race becomes a mud-slinging, back-stabbing, home-wrecking circus.

The Campaign

Directed by Jay Roach (“Meet the Parents”), The Campaign is a comedy that takes today’s dirty political campaigns to a whole new level. Scheduled for release by Warner Bros. Pictures on August 10, 2012, The Campaign was written by Chris Henchy and Shawn Harwell from a story by Adam McKay, Jay Roach and Zach Galifianakis. Also starring Jason Sudeikis, Katherine LaNasa, Dylan McDermott, John Lithgow, Dan Aykroyd, and Brian Cox.
