The King's Man     HD720p 75MB
First trailer for a prequel in the Kingsman franchise. Though due to a lack of cast overlap you could probably just as well call it a remake, or a reboot, or a money-grab. Again directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class, Layer Cake), to be in theatres next February.
As a collection of history’s worst tyrants and criminal masterminds gather to plot a war to wipe out millions, one man must race against time to stop them. Discover the origins of the very first independent intelligence agency. Probably the saving grace, the impressive cast, which includes Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Harris Dickinson, Daniel Brühl, Djimon Hounsou and Charles Dance.

Hustlers     HD720p 91MB
Crime drama based on a magazine article that follows a crew of savvy former strip club employees (Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Lili Reinhart, Keke Palmer) who band together to turn the tables on their Wall Street clients. Julia Stiles, Lizzo and Cardi B are also part of the cast. Adapted and directed by Lorene Scafaria (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, The Meddler).
Trailer looks like (rap) music video.

Driven     HD720p 93MB
Comedic thriller, set in early 1980's California, the story follows the rise of John DeLorean, and his iconic DeLorean Motor Company, through his friendship with charming ex-con turned FBI informant, Jim Hoffman (Jason Sudeikis). Hoffman and his wife (Judy Greer) become besties with DeLorean (Lee Pace) and his wife. Trouble begins when Hoffman is given an easy way out of his legal problems by setting his new friend up for an FBI agent leading a desperate DeLorean to agree to a sketchy cocaine transaction in order to save his failing business. Directed by Nick Hamm (Killing Bono, The Journey, Martha - Meet Frank Daniel and Laurence).
Reviews indicate that, given its story, it should be a (even) better movie. There also was recently a docu-drama about John DeLorean.

Extra Ordinary     HD1080p 24MB
Funny looking horror comedy from Ireland about Rose (Maeve Higgins), a sweet, lonely driving instructor in rural Ireland, who is gifted with supernatural abilities. Rose has a love/hate relationship with her ‘talents’ & tries to ignore the constant spirit related requests from locals - to exorcise possessed rubbish bins or haunted gravel. But! Christian Winter (Will Forte), a washed up, one-hit-wonder rock star, has made a pact with the devil for a return to greatness! He puts a spell on a local teenager - making her levitate. Her terrified father, Martin Martin (Barry Ward), asks Rose to help save his daughter.
A previous teaser: HD720p 7MB

Ode to Joy     HD720p 90MB
Romantic comedy about a man who is - literally - paralyzed by happiness. Thanks to a condition called cataplexy - a rare disorder that causes him to lose control of his muscles whenever he is overcome by strong emotion - Brooklyn librarian Charlie (Martin Freeman) has learned to carefully edit all delight-triggering people, places, and events out of his life. But when the beautiful, spontaneous Francesca (Morena Baccarin) falls for him, the risk-averse Charlie finds himself at a crossroads: suppress his feelings of attraction, or take a chance and let love in? Melissa Rauch and Jake Lacy are also part of the cast.
Judging from the trailer, Charlie's most important relationship seems to be with his brother.
