Very interesting trailer for a dark looking thriller set in a futuristic London society where there is no separation between Church and State that tells the story of four lost souls. Esser (Bernard Hill) is a broken man, searching for his wayward son amongst the rough streets of London's homeless. Milo (Sam Riley) is a heartbroken thirty-something desperately trying to find a way back to the purity of first love. Emilia (Eva Green) is a beautiful art student, her suicidal art projects becoming increasingly more complex and deadly. Preest (Ryan Phillippe) is a masked vigilante detective, searching for his nemesis on the streets of the city.
It's an independent production without the backing of a big studio and early festival reviews indicate it is well worth a look.

Very nice trailer for this quiet drama from Japan. It's the portrait of a seemingly ordinary Japanese family. The father who abruptly loses his job conceals the truth from his family; the eldest son in college hardly returns home; the youngest son furtively takes piano lessons without telling his parents; and the mother, who knows deep down that her role is to keep the family together, cannot find the will to do so. From the exterior, all is normal and the same. But somehow, a single, unforeseeable chasm has appeared within the family, only to spread ever so quietly and quickly to disintegrate them.
Reviews are very favourable and if you like this kind of movies I strongly suggest to have a look at it.

Next Day Air     HD480p 78MB   HD720p 151MB
Action comedy in which a UPS driver (Donald Faison) delivers a package containing bricks of cocaine to the wrong address, setting into motion a battle of wills and wits between the dealer, the intended recipients, and the people who have the drugs and plan to sell them off. Mike Epps, Wood Harris and Mos Def are also part of the cast.

Action thriller about a couple (Diane Lane, Thomas Jane) who's placed in the Federal Witness Protection program after witnessing an "incident". Thinking they are at last safe, they are targeted by an experienced hit man (Mickey Rourke) and a psychopathic young upstart killer (Joseph Gordon Levitt). Rosario Dawson is also part of the cast. Directed by John Madden (Proof, Shakespeare in Love, Mrs Brown), based on a novel by Elmore Leonard.
Given all the people involved one would hope for a decent movie. Here's the bad news, the movie was filmed three years ago, delayed multiple times and the official trailer surfaces about a week before the theatrical US release. And the main reason why now is probably the unexpected comeback of Mickey Rourke. So I suspect rushing to a movie theatre to see it isn't really necessary.
