  • Jersey Boys

    Clint Eastwood directs the film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical about a group of New Jersey friends, from the wrong side of the tracks, who would become '60s pop sensations Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons.

  • What We Do in the Shadows

    Taika Waititi (Boy) and Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords) are the writers, directors and stars of this vampire mockumentary. Unearthing a secret, supernatural society, otherwise known as a bunch of vampire flatmates in Wellington, the film introduces a world where friendship and camaraderie are just as important as feasting upon the flesh of mortals. Based on Waititi and Clement's 2006 short film of the same name.


  • How to Train Your Dragon 2

  • Picking up five years after the first movie, Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel) and Toothless set out to explore unmapped territories and discover new worlds. When they come upon an ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons, including the mysterious Dragon Rider, the pair find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace. Also features the voice talents of Jonah Hill, Kristin Wiig, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Gerard Butler. A third film has been announced, set for release in 2016, also to be directed by Dean DeBlois and featuring the full voice cast.
