Ad Astra     HD720p 101MB   HD1080p 181MB
Astronaut Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) travels to the outer edges of the solar system to find his missing father and unravel a mystery that threatens the survival of our planet. His journey will uncover secrets that challenge the nature of human existence and our place in the cosmos. Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga, Liv Tyler, Donald Sutherland and John Ortiz are also part of the cast. Directed by James Gray (We Own the Night, The Lost City of Z The Immigrant).
So far difficult to say if it will be closer to being introspective "arthouse" or blockbuster action.

After the Wedding     HD720p 88MB
Trailer for the US remake of the Danish movie that was directed by Susanne Bier and starred Mads Mikkelsen. Isabel (Michelle Williams) has dedicated her life to working with the children in an orphanage in Calcutta. Theresa (Julianne Moore) is the multimillionaire head of a media company who lives with her artist husband (Billy Crudup) and their twin boys in New York. When word comes to Isabel of a mysterious and generous grant for the financially struggling orphanage, she must travel to New York to meet the benefactor—Theresa—in person. Directed by Moore's husband, Bart Freundlich (The Rebound, Trust the Man).
The main appeal of this version is that the gender roles are flipped, and are now played by Williams and Moore.

Luce     HD720p 108MB
Psychological thriller based on a play, about an all-star high school athlete and accomplished debater, Luce (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) who is a poster boy for the new American Dream. As are his parents (Naomi Watts, Tim Roth), who adopted him from a war-torn country a decade earlier. When his teacher (Octavia Spencer) makes a shocking discovery in his locker, Luce’s stellar reputation is called into question. But is he really at fault, or is Ms. Wilson preying on dangerous stereotypes?
Was very well received at festivals.

Brittany Runs a Marathon     HD720p 100MB
Comedic drama about New Yorker Brittany Forgler (Jillian Bell) who is everybody’s best friend, except maybe her own. At 27, her hard-partying ways, chronic underemployment and toxic relationships are catching up with her. But when she stops by a new doctor’s office to try to score some Adderall, she gets slapped with a prescription she never wanted: Get healthy. Too broke for a gym and too proud to ask for help, Brit is at a loss, until her seemingly together neighbor Catherine pushes her to lace up her Converse sneakers and run one sweaty block. The next day, she runs two. And soon, after finishing her first mile, she sets an almost unthinkable goal: running in the New York City Marathon.
Won the Sundance Audience Award.

Frozen 2     HD720p 53MB
Another teaser for the animated sequel, to be in theatres in November. Elsa (Idina Menzel), Anna (Kristen Bell), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and Olaf (Josh Gad) are going far in the forest to know the truth about an ancient mystery of their kingdom. In the first movie Elsa feared her powers were too much for the world. Now she must hope they are enough. Again directed by Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck.
