The Machine

Opens Friday, Apr 25, 2014 Synopsis: An emerging Cold War leads to the development of a revolutionary new weapon that blurs the boundaries between man and machine. As rampant poverty plunges the world into chaos, a powerful new enemy of mankind emerges. Our only hope for salvation lies in the genius of Vincent McCarthy (Toby Stephens), the head scientist at Britain's Ministry of Defense. McCarthy has created an android prototype with unrivaled processing power and physical strength. When a programming glitch results in an unforeseen tragedy it begins to look like even McCarthy has failed in his efforts to save humanity, but with the help of artificial-intelligence expert Ava (Caity Lotz) he might just succeed in creating the world's smartest, strongest fighting machine. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Toby Stephens, Caity Lotz, Denis Lawson, Sam Hazeldine, Pooneh Hajimohammadi Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

Finding Mr. Right

Opens Tuesday, Nov 8, 2016 Synopsis: A pregnant Beijing mistress travels to Seattle to give birth to her child, and learns the meaning of humility when she befriends a humble maternity-ward driver while awaiting the arrival of her negligent sugar daddy. From the moment she arrives in Seattle, Wen Jiajia (Tang Wei) is positively insufferable. Berating everyone at the nursing ward as she casually flaunts her wealth, Wen quickly alienates herself from the staff and patients alike. The only one who can tolerate her is reserved driver Frank (Wu Xiu-Bo), and that's only because he's too polite to put her in her place. Meanwhile, an unexpected development prompts gold-digging Wen to reflect on her attitude and reassess her priorities. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Tang Wei, Xiubo Wu, Elaine Jin Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
