Dark Waters     HD720p 101MB
Thriller drama inspired by a true story. A tenacious attorney (Mark Ruffalo) uncovers a dark secret that connects a growing number of unexplained deaths due to one of the world's largest corporations, DuPont. In the process, he risks everything – his future, his family, and his own life - to expose the truth. Anne Hathaway, Tim Robbins, Bill Camp and Victor Garber are also part of the cast. Interestingly, directed by Todd Haynes (Far from Heaven, Carol, Velvet Goldmine).

Dolemite Is My Name     HD720p 44MB
Biopic that tells the story of Rudy Ray Moore (Eddie Murphy), a struggling singer and comedian working in a record store in early-1970s Hollywood. Every type of hustler populates the neighbourhood, most with a wicked repertoire of obscene insults. Moore begins picking up their patter. He creates a stage character, Dolemite the pimp, his hilarious, obscene, kung-fu fighting alter ego, records some especially profane routines, and soon rockets from shop clerk to ghetto superstar. It's not long before he starts making movies. Wesley Snipes, Mike Epps, Craig Robinson, Da'Vine Joy Randolph, Keegan-Michael Key and Tituss Burgess are also part of the cast. Directed by Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow, Black Snake Moan, Footloose).
After a brief theatrical run, it will start streaming on Netflix October 25th.

Portrait of a Lady on Fire - Portrait de la jeune fille en feu     HD720p 87MB
US trailer for this romantic drama from France. Set in 1770, Marianne (Noémie Merlant), a painter, is commissioned to do the wedding portrait of Héloïse (Adèle Haenel), a young woman who has just left the convent. Héloïse is a reluctant bride to be and Marianne must paint her without her knowing. She observes her by day, to paint her secretly. Valeria Golino is also part of the cast. Written and directed by Céline Sciamma (Water Lilies, Girlhood, Tomboy).
Was awarded the prize for the Best Screenplay this year in Cannes, where it was very well received.

Doctor Sleep     HD720p 92MB
Second trailer for the sequel to ... Shining. Again based on a book by Stephen King, but clearly trying to profit from Kubrick's seminal film. It continues the story of Danny Torrance (Ewan McGregor), 40 years after his terrifying stay at the Overlook Hotel. Now an adult, he meets a young girl with similar powers as his and tries to protect her from a cult known as The True Knot who prey on children with powers to remain immortal. Rebecca Ferguson and Jacob Tremblay and Cliff Curtis are also part of the cast.

The Lighthouse     HD720p 58MB
Second short trailer for this psychological drama that follows the slow descent into madness of two lighthouse keepers (Willem Dafoe, Robert Pattinson) on a remote New England island at the turn of the 19th century. Directed by Robert Eggers (The Witch).
While not taking part in the main competition, was very well received in Cannes, with reviewers praising the performances of Dafoe and Pattinson.
