The Great Wall

European mercenaries searching for black powder become embroiled in the defence of the Great Wall of China against a horde of monstrous creatures.

Director Yimou Zhang has a large body of work with House of Flying Daggers and Curse of the Golden Flower some of his better known films particularly in western cinema. His latest project is the newest endeavour from China-Hollywood co-productions and sees Matt Damon in the lead role for this Chinese fantasy film set against the backdrop of the Great Wall of China.

Manchester By The Sea

Lee Chandler (Casey Affleck) is a loner who works as a handyman in several apartment blocks in Quincy Massachusetts. After his brother dies, he is called back to his home, to the seaside town of Manchester.He discovers he has been named the legal guardian of Patrick, his 16-year-old nephew.

Fences

A working-class African-American father tries to raise his family in the 1950s, while coming to terms with the events of his life.

Gold

Kenny Wells (Matthew McConaughey), follows his father into the mining business. He believes his destiny is to build upon the family legacy. Unfortunately, Kenny has no gift for business or mining and as the years pass, he loses money and credibility, eventually becoming a poor risk that others won’t invest in. However, he has great tenacity and he hangs in there waiting for the right opportunity. Finally he meets geologist Michael Acosta (Édgar Ramírez) and together they travel into the uncharted jungles of Borneo, Indonesia.

Patriots Day

Most of us know of the terror attack that took place in April 2013 during the Boston marathon. Those events are revisited and further delved into in a new movie called Patriots Day.

Split

After three girls are kidnapped by a man with 24 distinct personalities they must find some of the different personalities that can help them while running away and staying alive from the others.

Jackie

At first glance, the idea of Natalie Portman playing Jackie Kennedy seems like stunt casting. Although she has played numerous roles in her long career, nothing about Portman suggests the former First Lady. The process of using a well-known movie actor to play another famous person is always something of a trick. The substitution of one famous set of features for another requires the skill of the filmmaker and the suspension of an audience’s disbelief. It helps if there is some similarity in the shape of the face. Faye Dunaway eventually morphs into Joan Crawford in MOMMIE DEAREST (1981).
