Dark Phoenix     HD720p 91MB   HD1080p 169MB
Second trailer for the latest X-Men movie. They will face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey (Sophie Turner). During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, she unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. Jessica Chastain is a new cast addition. Among the actors who return are James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Evan Peters. Directorial debut of Simon Kinberg, who so far acted as writer and producer of various instalments of the series.

Stockholm     HD720p 19MB
Comedic drama that (sort of) recounts the absurd true story that sent psychologists scrambling to explain why a group of bank clerks insisted on defending the thief who had taken them hostage. Lars (Ethan Hawke), a charming, bumbling, Bob Dylan-loving crook who storms into the Swedish capital’s mightiest money lender and confuses hostages and police alike with his bizarre demands - like requesting an accomplice and friend (Mark Strong) be released from prison to join him in his delinquency. As the hostages come to realize that Lars couldn’t hurt a fly, bank clerk Bianca (Noomi Rapace) and her fellow captives help him hatch a plan to prolong the standoff and escape with millions. Written and directed by Robert Budreau (Born to Be Blue).
In recent years, the number of small but interesting and very diverse movies in which Hawke is starring in, seems to be increasing.

The Kid     HD720p 32MB
Western in which a young boy, Rio (Jake Schur), is forced to go on the run across the American Southwest in a desperate attempt to save his sister from his villainous uncle (Chris Pratt). Along the way, he encounters Sheriff Pat Garrett (Ethan Hawke), on the hunt for the infamous outlaw Billy the Kid (Dane DeHaan). Rio finds himself increasingly entwined in the lives of these two legendary figures as the cat and mouse game of Billy the Kid’s final year of life plays out. Vincent D'Onofrio is also part of the cast, he also directed.

Pokémon Detective Pikachu     HD720p 91MB
Second trailer for the live action movie based on the "worldwide phenomenon". The story begins when ace detective Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim (Justice Smith) to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry’s former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu (voiced by Ryan Reynolds): a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself. Finding that they are uniquely equipped to communicate with one another, the two join forces on a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery.
The movie's not for me, but the "Outside the Actors Studio" video in which Ryan Reynolds describes how he prepared for the role is quite funny: HD720p 32MB.

The Wedding Guest     HD1080p 32MB
Thriller written and directed by Michael Winterbottom (A Mighty Heart, Code 46, In This World). Jay (Dev Patel) is a man with a secret who travels from Britain to Pakistan to attend a wedding - armed with duct tape, a shotgun, and a plan to kidnap the bride-to-be (Radhika Apte). Despite his cool efficiency, the plot quickly spirals out of control, sending Jay and his hostage on the run across the border and through the railway stations, back alleys, and black markets of New Delhi.
