Biographical crime drama - though it looks like it's also a comedy - about the family empire behind the Italian fashion house of Gucci. Spanning three decades of love, betrayal, decadence, revenge, and ultimately murder, we see what a name means, what it’s worth, and how far a family will go for control. At the centre of the movie is the story of Patrizia Reggiani (Lady Gaga), who was tried and convicted of orchestrating the assassination of her ex-husband and former head of the Gucci fashion house Maurizio Gucci (Adam Driver). Al Pacino, Jared Leto, Salma Hayek, Camille Cottin, Jack Huston and Jeremy Irons are also part of the cast.
The second trailer for a Ridley Scott (All the Money in the World, American Gangster, Hannibal) movie in the last ten days. He continues to work like clockwork.
King Richard HD720p 108MB
Biopic that follows the journey of Richard Williams (Will Smith), an undeterred father instrumental in raising two of the most extraordinarily gifted athletes of all time, who will end up changing the sport of tennis forever. Driven by a clear vision of their future and using unconventional methods, Richard has a plan that will take Venus and Serena Williams from the streets of Compton, California to the global stage as legendary icons.
My first reaction was to wonder if there shouldn't be a biopic that focuses on the two sisters, instead one about the father. But I admit that I know nothing about Richard Williams.

Rare Beasts HD720p 82MB
Darkly comedic "anti-romcom" about Mandy (Billie Piper), a nihilistic young writer and mother who, while navigating her dysfunctional family and misogynistic workplace, falls for Pete (Leo Bill), a traditionalist searching for ‘restored’ male identity. David Thewlis and Kerry Fox are also part of the cast, Lily James has a cameo. Piper also wrote the script and directed.
Depressing. But also often very, very funny.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife HD720p 101MB
A new trailer for the delayed Ghostbusters re-boot. When a single mom and her two kids arrive in a small town, they begin to discover their connection to the original ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind. Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace and Paul Rudd are part of the cast. Members of the original movie are expected to make cameo appearances.

Still a strong emphasis on kids and the "scary" aspects, and not on humour.
