Twelve strong tells the true Story of the Army’s Special Forces “Green Berets,” who within weeks responded to the 9-11 attack.

The movie is based on Doug Stanton’s non-fiction book Horse Soldiers.
Director: Joe Wright
Stars: Gary Oldman, Lily James and Kristin Scott Thomas
A major contender for the 2018 Oscars and Golden Globes Award, Darkest Hour stars Oscar nominee and BAFTA Award winner Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill in yet another great performance. The film focuses on Churchill’s first weeks in office during the early days of the Second World War, when the entire British army was facing the Nazis in France.
INSIDIOUS: THE LAST KEY

In this fourth installment of the Insidious horror series, Lin Shaye returns as parapsychologist Dr. Elise Rainier who must investigate otherworldly presence in her own house. The story is rumored to be a prequel that leads directly into the first Insidious; as the events might occur before those of the first film in the franchise.

Stars: Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz and Hong Chau
Although it is not the first film about shrinking people (Remember the 1989 Honey I Shrunk the Kids or even the 1951 The Incredible Shrinking Man), this sci-fi comedy received warm welcomes at Venice, Toronto and Dubai festivals last year. Because of overpopulation and the cost of living, a couple played by Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig decide to be the first to test a new shrinking technology that allows one to move into a mini-community.
