Rock Dog

Rock Dog

Friday, February 24, 2017

Bodi, a wide-eyed Tibetan Mastiff, is expected to become the next village guard to a group of fun-loving, country-side sheep, but fears he doesn’t have the passion to assume the role from his dad, Khampa. Everything changes when a radio literally falls out of the sky and Bodi hears a song by rock legend Angus Scattergood, opening his heart to a musical world he must explore.

Leaving home to chase his destiny in the big city, Bodi attracts the attention of Khampa’s nemesis, Linnux. Leader of a hungry wolf pack, Linnux believes that Bodi is his ticket back into the village and closer to delicious sheep. It is up to Bodi to save his family and friends from harm without giving up his newfound dream. -- Lionsgate

A Monster Calls

Friday, January 6, 2017

A visually spectacular and unabashedly emotional drama from director J.A. Bayona (The Impossible).

12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall) is dealing with far more than other boys his age. His beloved and devoted mother (Felicity Jones) is ill. He has little in common with his imperious grandmother (Sigourney Weaver). His father (Toby Kebbell) has resettled thousands of miles away. But Conor finds a most unlikely ally when the Monster (portrayed by Liam Neeson in performance-capture and voiceover) appears at his bedroom window one night.

Ancient, wild, and relentless, the Monster guides Conor on a journey of courage, faith, and truth that powerfully fuses imagination and reality.

Lewis Macdougall As Connor
Felicity Jones As  Mum
Toby Kebbell As Dad
Liam Neeson As The Monster
Sigourney Weaver As Grandma

Centers around an arrogant, dark, sarcastic and just "too-cool" Batman.

On October 2014, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that, due to the popularity of Batman from The LEGO Movie, the character will get his own spin-off film. According to the report, Warner Bros. was targeting a 2017 release date for the spin-off, pushing the sequel to The LEGO Movie back to a later date. Arnett is set to reprise his role of Batman, while McKay, who was earlier attached to the sequel, will direct the film, which is being written by Seth Grahame-Smith, and produced by Roy Lee, Dan Lin, Lord and Miller. A few days later, Warner Bros. scheduled The LEGO Batman Movie for May 2017, and The LEGO Movie 2 for 2018. On October 25, 2014, it was reported that Phil Lord and Chris Miller had signed to write The LEGO Movie sequel.
