Recently separated from her husband (Michael Sheen), Alice decides to start over by moving back to her hometown of Los Angeles with her 2 young daughters. Choosing to live a little more spontaneously, during a night out on her 40th birthday, Alice meets 3 aspiring filmmakers who happen to be in need of a place to live. Alice agrees to let the charismatic guys stay in her guest house temporarily, but the arrangement ends up unfolding in unexpected ways. Alice’s unlikely new family and new romance comes to a crashing halt when her ex-husband shows up, suitcase in hand. ‘Home Again’ is a story of love, friendship, and the families we create.

    Open: September 15, 2017 (wide)

    Columbia Pictures, a division of Sony Pictures—Director/Writer: Albert Hughes / Starring: Kodi Smit-McPhee, Leonor Varela

    Set 20,000 years ago in the Ice Age, an Upper Paleolithic period hunting expedition goes awry and a young survivor braves the inhospitable and dangerous conditions to find his way back.

    Anthropologists call the humans of this supposed “period” “Solutreans,” humans like us, but who lacked metals (for whatever reason) and had to rely on their relatively advanced flint tool-making abilities and clever minds to survive. The term Solutrean derives from a site in France (Solutre-Pouilly), where archaeologists discovered numerous flint points and tools with the bones of reindeer, elephants, deer and horses.

    After losing the love of his life to a cruel Philistine prince, a young Hebrew with supernatural strength defends his people, sacrificing everything to avenge his love, …his people, and his God.

    A Hebrew with an unusual gift of strength must respond properly to the call of God on his life in order to lead his people out of enslavement. After his youthful ambition leads to a tragic marriage, his acts of revenge thrust him into direct conflict with the Philistine army. As his brother mounts a tribal rebellion, only Samson’s relationship with a Philistine temptress and his final surrender—both to the Philistines and to God—turns imprisonment and blindness into final victory.
