currently showing nationwide—821 U.S. theaters

Thurgood Marshall become the first African American Supreme Court Justice. This film depicts his battles through a career-defining, landmark case, before he ascended to the bench as a Supreme Court Justice.

As the nation teeters on the brink of WWII, a nearly bankrupt NAACP sends a young Thurgood Marshall to conservative Connecticut to defend a black chauffeur against his wealthy socialite employer in a sexual assault and attempted murder trial that quickly became tabloid fodder.

In need of a high profile victory but muzzled by a segregationist court, Marshall is partnered with Samuel Friedman, a young Jewish lawyer who has never tried a case.

Marshall and Friedman struggle against a hostile storm of fear and prejudice, driven to discover the truth in the sensationalized trial which helped set the groundwork for the Civil Rights Movement to come.

A blind woman's relationship with her husband changes when she regains her sight and discovers disturbing details about themselves.

Blake Lively (‘The Shallows’) and Jason Clarke (‘Zero Dark Thirty’) star in this thriller from director Marc Forster (Monster's Ball, World War Z), about a blind woman who regains her sight and begins to discover disturbing new details about her marriage and her life.

Marriages are a delicate psychological interplay between two people, and there's no shortage of stories about how that connection is altered when things take a turn for the worse. But this insightful new drama is about a married couple who face unexpected challenges when their circumstances seemingly change for the better.

James (Jason Clarke) and Gina (Blake Lively) are a happily married couple living in Bangkok. Gina has been virtually blind since the childhood car crash that destroyed her sight and killed her parents. Despite her difficulties, Gina lives a full life, depending on James for help navigating the raucous bustle of the city.

When Gina has the opportunity to have sight-restoring surgery on her right eye, she jumps at the chance. After the procedure, her world is changed. Not only does she see everything around her, but she sees herself in a new light. Their lives change in a million ways both large and small, and James' surprising response to the new status quo will reveal the troubling power dynamics underpinning their relationship.

The Greatest Showman

“The impossible comes true”

Open: December 25, 2017

Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation—Starring: Hugh Jackman as Phineas Taylor Barnum, Rebecca Ferguson, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Zendaya, etc. / Director: Michael Gracey

Inspired by the imagination of P.T. Barnum, ‘The Greatest Showman’ is an original musical that celebrates the birth of show business and tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation—the famous traveling Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.

Jackman plays the showman with a penchant for hoaxing a gullible public as he creates the three-ring circus that made him famous. The musical also focuses on his infatuation with singer Jenny Lind—the so-called Swedish Nightingale.

This has been a dream project for Hugh Jackman since 2009. This is his first musical since ‘Les Misérables.’

Samson

“Chosen. Betrayed. Redeemed.”

Official site

Open: February 16, 2018 (wide release)

Pure Flix Entertainment—Starring: Jackson Rathbone, Billy Zane, Taylor James, Rutger Hauer, Lindsay Wagner

SAMSON is based on the powerful, biblical epic of a champion chosen by God to deliver Israel.

This 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. His youthful ambition leads to a tragic marriage.

After losing the love of his life to a cruel Philistine prince, the young Hebrew’s acts of revenge and impulsive decisions thrust him into direct conflict with the Philistine army. His brother mounts a tribal rebellion against the oppressive Philistine empire.

After being betrayed by a wicked prince and a beautiful temptress, Samson is captured and blinded by his enemies. He finally surrenders all to God—and sacrifices everything to avenge his love …his people …and his God—and turns imprisonment, humiliation and blindness into final victory.

Alpha
also known as “The Solutrean”

“Leaders are born from survival”

Open: March 2, 2018 (wide release)

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.

Columbia Pictures, a division of Sony Pictures—Director/Writer: Albert Hughes—“The Book of Eli” (2010), “From Hell” (2001) / Starring: Kodi Smit-McPhee, Leonor Varela
