Dead Man Down

Colin Farrell, Noomi Rapace, and Terrence Howard star in the newest thriller from the director of the award winning Swedish version of “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo”.  The film follows Victor (Farrell), a trigger man for a big time New York City crime boss, as he becomes romantically engaged to a femme fatale looking for revenge (Rapace). This marks the first time director Niels Arden Oplev teams up with “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” star Noomi Rapace for a feature film project .http://www.deadmandownmovie.com

Oz the Great and Powerful(READ LATF USA's REVIEW HERE)

Sam Raimi’s artful, 3D prequel to the American classic follows Oz (James Franco) as he goes from impoverished freak show magician to the greatest wizard Emerald City has ever seen.  “Oz the Great and Powerful” features an incredibly deep supporting cast including performances from Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, and Zach Braff. http://disney.go.com/thewizard/

Emperor

Fresh off his stellar performance in “Lincoln”, Tommy Lee Jones’ 2013 debut is yet another historical tale. This time, however, Jones plays celebrated WWII General Douglas MacArthur, as he and General Bonner Fellers (Matthew Fox) are given the responsibility to decide if Emperor Hirohito should be hung as a war criminal after surrendering Japan to America. http://www.emperor-themovie.com
