A WIN­TER’S TALE

Through a mys­te­ri­ous in­ven­tion, Peter Lake (played by Colin Far­rell) goes back in time to save his love from dy­ing. Mak­ing his di­rec­to­rial de­but, Akiva Golds­man of A Beau­ti­ful Mind fame hand­picked a golden bas­ket of Os­car-win­ning ac­tors such as Jen­nifer Con­nelly and Rus­sell Crowe to help bring this story to life. It’s a su­per­nat­u­ral love story that’s per­fect for Valen­tine’s Day, one that will make you be­lieve in true love all over again.

THE WIND RISES

Academy Award-win­ning Ja­panese anime mar­vel Hayao Miyazaki is back with his fi­nal fea­ture-length film. Based on a beau­ti­ful 1937 short novel by Tat­suo Hori, The Wind Rises tells the tale of Jiro Horikoshi, an air­craft engi­neer re­mem­bered by his de­sign of the Mis­tubishi A6M Reisen “Zero”, Ja­pan’s fa­mous World War II fighter air­craft. Like all Miyazaki films, there is al­ways more to the story than meets the eye.

POM­PEII

The an­cient city is set to go up in flames again! In what would seem to be an odd col­lab­o­ra­tion, di­rec­tor of the famed Res­i­dent Evil se­ries, Paul W.S. An­der­son, joins forces with the cre­ator of Down­ton Abbey, Ju­lian Fel­lowes, to bring us the clas­sic tale of a damsel in dis­tress saved by her prince, while Mount Ve­su­vius erupts. Only this time round, he’s no prince, but a slave turned gla­di­a­tor. Stars a smol­der­ing Kit Har­ing­ton and Emily Brown­ing.
