Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker     HD720p 95MB   HD1080p 161MB
Full, final trailer for the final chapter of the saga from a galaxy far, far away. There is still "No synopsis available at this time". But it will apparently take place some time after "The Last Jedi". Lots of people will return, new additions (I think) will be Richard E. Grant, Naomi Ackie, Dominic Monaghan and Keri Russell. J.J. Abrams returns to direct (Episode VII - The Force Awakens, Star Trek, Mission: Impossible III).

Bloodshot     HD720p 103MB
Comic book adaptation about a soldier (Vin Diesel) recently killed in action and brought back to life as the superhero Bloodshot by the RST corporation. With an army of nanotechnology in his veins, he’s an unstoppable force – stronger than ever and able to heal instantly. But in controlling his body, the company has sway over his mind and memories, too. Now, he doesn’t know what’s real and what’s not – but he’s on a mission to find out. Eiza González, Sam Heughan, Toby Kebbell, Lamorne Morris and Guy Pearce are also part of the cast.
Maybe Diesel should've stopped after his career high of playing a tree.

The King's Man     HD720p 102MB
Second 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 reboot. 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.

Dolittle     HD720p 75MB
"Vivid reimagining" of the classic tale of the man who could talk to animals. After losing his wife seven years earlier, the eccentric Dr. John Dolittle (Robert Downey Jr.) hermits himself away behind the high walls of Dolittle Manor with only his menagerie of exotic animals for company. But when the young Queen Victoria (Jessie Buckley) falls gravely ill, Dolittle, joined by his animal friends (voiced by Emma Thompson, Rami Malek, Kumail Nanjiani, John Cena, Selena Gomez, Ralph Fiennes, Craig Robinson, Marion Cotillard), is forced to set sail on an epic adventure, regaining his wit and courage as he crosses old adversaries and discovers wondrous creatures. Antonio Banderas and Michael Sheen are also part of the cast. Directed by Stephen Gaghan (Syriana, Gold).
While the US release date of January 17th is followed by a holiday weekend, if the studio had confidence in the delayed movie, they would release it during the Christmas season.

Paradise Hills     HD720p 65MB
Dystopian fantasy set on an isolated island called Paradise Hills, where Uma (Emma Roberts) wakes up to find herself at a facility where high-class families send their daughters to become perfect versions of themselves. The facility is run by the mysterious Duchess (Milla Jovovich) where calibrated treatments are meant to change all physical and emotional shortcomings within two months. Uma finds solace and friendship in other Paradise Hills residents (Danielle McDonald, Awkwafina, Eiza González). But she soon realizes that lurking behind all this beauty is a sinister secret. Jeremy Irvine is also part of the cast.
Festival reviews praise the costumes and the sets, not so much the story.
