The Favourite
released January 1st, 2019

Early 18th century England, a frail Queen occupies the throne, whose sense of paranoia is heightened by the competing voices of two subjects vying for her affection and favour.

From director Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster, The Killing of a Sacred Deer), starring Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz.


One Cut of the Dead
released Friday January 4th, 2019

Things go badly wrong for a director and film crew shooting a low budget zombie movie, when a real zombie apocalypse erupts.

One Cut of the Dead opens with a 37 minute single-take shot, then turns the zombie genre completely upside down.


Beautiful Boy
released Friday January 18th, 2019

Based on the best-selling memoirs by David Sheff and his son Nic Sheff, Beautiful Boy chronicles the true and inspiring story of survival, relapse, and recovery in a family coping with addiction over many years.

From director Felix Van Groeningen (The Broken Circle Breakdown), featuring two powerful central performances from Timothee Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name, Ladybird) and Steve Carell (Foxcatcher, The Big Short, Little Miss Sunshine).
