In GEMINI MAN, Will Smith stars as the world’s deadliest assassin, who is forced to battle his younger, and more deadly, clone, played by a CGI Will Smith. As the two get closer to one another, they begin to uncover secrets about how this happened, and why it happened to them. Directed by Ang Lee (LIFE OF PI), who shot the film in native 3D and at a high frame rate of 120 frames per second, for an unparalleled cinematic experience.

The latest movie from master filmmaker Pedro Almodovar reunites the Spanish director with Antonio Banderas (THE SKIN I LIVE IN) and Penelope Cruz (BROKEN EMBRACES) for a semi-autobiographical drama. Salvador Mallo (Banderas) is an aging filmmaker whose best days might truly be behind him. His health in decline, Mallo calls upon an old actor friend (Asier Etxiandia) for a visit, during which the filmmaker’s past returns to haunt him as he reflects on a series of significant moments and encounters from his personal history. With a stellar performance from Banderas, Pain and Glory reflects on life with Almodovar's signature sense of humor and melodrama.

That creepy, kooky, spooky family is back in their first animated film. An impressive voice cast, which includes Oscar Issac as Gomez, Charlize Theron as his wife, Morticia, and Nick Kroll as Uncle Fester, brings THE ADDAMS FAMILY to life, with designs closely based on the original cartoons by Charles Addams. While their looks are old-school, the story finds the classic characters updated for the 21st century as they face off against a reality TV host while also struggling to survive their move to (gulp) New Jersey.

In the clever comedy JEXI, Adam Devine stars as a guy with no friends and a mind-numbing job. He does, however, have a very deep crush on an unusual individual: His smartphone’s AI (Rose Byrne), which is life coach, virtual assistant and cheerleader all rolled into one. But what happens when the AI, Jexi, becomes too attached to her owner? This high-spirited comedic counterpart to Spike Jonze's movie HER comes from the writer-directors of BAD MOMS.

Snoochie boochies! Just in time for the 25th anniversary of Kevin Smith’s CLERKS, the writer-director throws his popular stoner icons into their first new movie in 18 years. The very meta storyline in this special event presentation finds Jay and Silent Bob (played by Jason Mewes and Smith) heading back to Hollywood to stop filmmakers from remaking the BLUNTMAN & CHRONIC movie that was originally based on them. Plenty of laughs and a huge array of celebrity cameos ensue.
