Director Brad Bird (Toy Story 3), writer Damon Lindelof (World War Z) and George Clooney (Gravity) take us on a journey to the Tomorrowland inside all of us, where wishes come true and and ideas come to life. In these dark times we live in, it’s a film that dares you to hope.

Deep in the uncharted American wilderness, Leonardo DiCaprio, directed and co-written by renowned filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu. DONE! I’m there.
Knight Of Cups
Knight of Cups is a story of a man, temptations, celebrity and excess. Terrence Malick’s newest film seems to be much more than a standard character study. So EXCITED!

I can’t wait to see what director Abdellatif Kechiche does to follow up Blue is the Warmest Color. Something about Gerard Depardieu and a teenage trying to lose his virginity.
