“They can’t save the world… at all”

Open: July 27, 2018 (wide release)

Warner Bros. Pictures—Brand: DC Comics / Starring: Kristen Bell, Will Arnett, Tara Strong / Directors: Aaron Horvath, Peter Rida Michail

When the Teen Titans go to the big screen, they go big! Teen Titans GO! to the Movies finds our egocentric, wildly satirical Super Heroes in their first feature film extravaganza—a fresh, gleefully clever, kid-appropriately crass and tongue-in-cheek play on the superhero genre, complete with musical numbers.

It seems to the Teens that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies—everyone but the Teen Titans, that is! But de facto leader Robin is determined to remedy the situation, and be seen as a star instead of a sidekick. If only they could get the hottest Hollywood film director to notice them. With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream. But when the group is radically misdirected by a seriously Super-Villain and his maniacal plan to take over the Earth, things really go awry. The team finds their friendship and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line!

Imprisoned by an adult world that now fears everyone under 18, a group of teens form a resistance group to fight back and reclaim control of their future.

Sixteen-year-old Ruby, one of the most powerful young people anyone has encountered, escapes her camp and joins a group of runaway teens seeking safe haven. Soon this newfound family realizes that, in a world in which the adults in power have betrayed them, running is not enough and they must wage a resistance, using their collective power to take back control of their future.

The movie is an adaptation of the first book of the best-selling 2012 young adult fantasy trilogy by author Alexandra Bracken.

Warner Bros.—Director: Jon Turteltaub—“National Treasure” franchise, “The Sorcerer's Apprentice” (2019) / Starring: Jason Statham, Ruby Rose, Rainn Wilson, Robert Taylor, Cliff Curtis, Bingbing Li, etc.

After escaping an attack by what he claims was by a 70-foot shark, expert deep sea diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) must confront his fears and risk everything to save those trapped in a sunken submersible that lies disabled at the bottom of the Mariana Trench. Could the Megalodon still be alive?

On a top-secret dive into the Pacific Ocean’s deepest canyon, Jonas Taylor found himself face-to-face with the largest and most ferocious predator in the history of the animal kingdom. The sole survivor of the mission, Taylor is haunted by what he’s sure he saw but still can’t prove exists—Carcharodon megalodon, the massive mother of the great white shark. The average prehistoric Meg weighs in at twenty tons and could tear apart a Tyrannosaurus rex in seconds.

Written off as a crackpot suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, Taylor refuses to forget the depths that nearly cost him his life. With a Ph. D. In paleontology under his belt, Taylor spends years theorizing, lecturing, and writing about the possibility that Meg still feeds at the deepest levels of the sea. But it takes an old friend in need to get him to return to the water, and a hotshot female submarine pilot to dare him back into a high-tech miniature sub.

Diving deeper than he ever has before, Taylor will face terror like he’s never imagined, and what he finds could turn the tides bloody red until the end of time. MEG is about to surface. When she does, nothing and no one is going to be safe, and Jonas must face his greatest fear once again.

The film is based on Steve Alten’s bestselling sci-fi novel, Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror about a giant, prehistoric shark that still exists and is swimming closer to the surface—near swimming beaches.

“No sesame. All street.”

Open: August 17, 2018 (wide release)

STX Entertainment—Starring: Melissa McCarthy, Elizabeth Banks, Joel McHale, Maya Rudolph, Jimmy O. Yang, Leslie David Baker, etc. / Director: Brian Henson

A murder mystery set in a world where humans and puppets co-exist, but puppets are viewed as second-class citizens. When the puppet cast of an '80s children's TV show begins to get murdered one by one, a former cop, who has since become a private eye, takes on the case.

When the stars of “The Happytime Gang” are mysteriously murdered, two mismatched detectives — one a type-A, take-no-prisoners human with a secret, and the other a crass, hard-drinking puppet with a connection to one of the victims — must put aside their differences to stop the killings and catch the culprit, while resisting the temptation to murder each other.

The raucous comedy explores a world where puppets and humans live side by side, and the puppet stars of the iconic TV show “The Happytime Gang” are some of the biggest celebrities around. But off camera, the family-friendly cast leads the kinds of lives that would make a tabloid writer blush.
