As both men’s private lives erode, with Bowden in over his head and Ross’ growing paranoia driving unthinkable choices, they cling to their jobs in an elaborate game of cat-and-mouse that have both asking how far their idealism can take them.

On a post-apocalyptic earth, a robot, built to protect the life of his dying creator’s beloved dog, learns about life, love, friendship and what it means to be human.

A man, a robot and a dog form an unlikely family as Tom Hanks stars in a powerful and moving adventure of one man’s quest to ensure that his beloved canine companion will be cared for after he’s gone.

Hanks stars as Finch, a robotics engineer and one of the few survivors of a cataclysmic solar event that has left the world a wasteland. But Finch, who has been living in an underground bunker for decade, has built a world of his own that he shares with his dog, Goodyear.

Now, though, Finch is terminally ill. With time running out, he creates a robot (Caleb Landry Jones, Get Out, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) to watch over Goodyear when he no longer can. As the trio embarks on a perilous journey into a desolate American West, Finch strives to show his creation, who names himself Jeff, the joy and wonder of what it means to be alive and to teach him to become human enough to take care of Goodyear. And Goodyear himself must learn to accept and trust his new master.

In the tradition of classic Amblin films, BIOS is an epic-scale adventure anchored by a moving exploration of how complicated it is to be human and the unbreakable bond between people and their companions, both canine and created.

“Dare to say his name”

USA Theaters: August 27, 2021

Universal Pictures—Starring: Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Vanessa Williams, Tony Todd, Teyonah Parris, Colman Domingo, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett / Director: Nia DaCosta

From Producer/Writer Jordan Peele / This film is described as a ‘spiritual sequel’ to Bernard Rose’s 1992 horror film ‘Candyman’ that returns to the now-gentrified Chicago neighborhood where the legend began. It centers on a struggling artist (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) who begins to lose his sanity after discovering the story of the Candyman, which he initially uses as artistic inspiration.

Oscar® winner Jordan Peele unleashes a fresh take on the blood-chilling urban legend: Candyman. Filmmaker Nia DaCosta (Little Woods, upcoming Captain Marvel 2) directs this contemporary incarnation of the cult classic.

For as long as residents can remember, the housing projects of Chicago’s Cabrini-Green neighborhood were terrorized by a word-of-mouth ghost story about a supernatural killer with a hook for a hand, easily summoned by those daring to repeat his name five times into a mirror. In present day, a decade after the last of the Cabrini towers were torn down, visual artist Anthony McCoy (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II; HBO’s Watchmen, Us) and his partner, gallery director Brianna Cartwright (Teyonah Parris; If Beale Street Could Talk, The Photograph), move into a luxury loft condo in Cabrini, now gentrified beyond recognition and inhabited by upwardly mobile millennials.

With Anthony’s painting career on the brink of stalling, a chance encounter with a Cabrini-Green old-timer (Colman Domingo; HBO’s Euphoria, Assassination Nation) exposes Anthony to the tragically horrific nature of the true story behind Candyman. Anxious to maintain his status in the Chicago art world, Anthony begins to explore these macabre details in his studio as fresh grist for paintings, unknowingly opening a door to a complex past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifying wave of violence that puts him on a collision course with destiny.

North American Theaters: January 14, 2022

Universal Pictures—Starring: Jessica Chastain, Diane Kruger, Penélope Cruz, Lupita Nyong'o, Bingbing Fan, Sebastian Stan, Edgar Ramírez / Director: Simon Kinberg

A dream team of formidable female stars come together in a hard-driving original approach to the globe-trotting espionage genre in THE 355.

When a top-secret weapon falls into mercenary hands, wild card CIA agent Mason ‘Mace’ Brown will need to join forces with rival badass German agent Marie, former MI6 ally and cutting-edge computer specialist Khadijah, and skilled Colombian psychologist Graciela on a lethal, breakneck mission to retrieve it, while also staying one-step ahead of a mysterious woman, Lin Mi Sheng, who is tracking their every move. As the action rockets around the globe from the cafes of Paris to the markets of Morocco to the wealth and glamour of Shanghai, the quartet of women will forge a tenuous loyalty that could protect the world-or get them killed.

Note: The number 355 was a code for one of the first recorded female spies, employed by George Washington in the American Revolution (1765-1783).

USA Theaters: Release date delayed due to Wuhan coronavirus

Columbia Pictures, a division of Sony Pictures—Starring: Olivia Colman, Maya Rudolph, Abbi Jacobson, Danny McBride / Director: Michael Rianda

Katie Mitchell is accepted into the film school of her dreams. Her whole family drives Katie to school together when their plans are interrupted by a tech uprising. The Mitchells will have to work together to save the world.

CONNECTED is an original animated comedy from director Mike Rianda (Gravity Falls) and producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” “The Lego Movie”), about an everyday family’s struggle to relate while technology rises up around the world! When Katie Mitchell (voiced by Abbi Jacobson), a creative outsider, is accepted into the film school of her dreams, her plans to meet “her people” at college are upended when her nature-loving dad Rick (voiced by Danny McBride) determines the whole family should drive Katie to school together and bond as a family one last time.

Katie and Rick are joined by the rest of the family, including Katie’s wildly positive mom Linda (voiced by Maya Rudolph), her quirky little brother Aaron (voiced by Mike Rianda), and the family’s delightfully chubby pug Monchi for the ultimate family road trip. Suddenly, the Mitchells’ plans are interrupted by a tech uprising: all around the world, the electronic devices people love – from phones, to appliances, to an innovative new line of personal robots—decide it’s time to take over. With the help of two friendly malfunctioning robots, the Mitchells will have to get past their problems and work together to save each other and the world!
