Official Synopsis: Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry mutates this gentle ape into a raging creature of enormous size. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered animals. As these newly created alpha predators tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.
Official Synopsis: Shortly after the horrific Abby attack, “Wayward Pines” is no longer the idyllic town it once was. The First Generation kids have taken control and the residents are rebelling against them. Season 2 of this psychological thriller brings a new resident to the town, a confident surgeon named Dr. Theo Yedlin (Jason Patric). After awakening from suspended animation, Dr. Yedlin gets caught in the middle of the rebellion and must help save the human race—all while trying to figure out what Wayward Pines is exactly. Djimon Hounsou, who plays CJ Mitchum, the town’s historian and only link to the knowledge of the previous world, joins returning cast members Hope Davis, Shannyn Sossamon and Tom Stevens.
Official Synopsis: With his provocative feature debut, twenty-six-year-old Steven Soderbergh trained his focus on the complexities of human intimacy and deception in the modern age. Housewife Ann (Andie MacDowell) feels distant from her lawyer husband, John (Peter Gallagher), who is sleeping with her sister, Cynthia (Laura San Giacomo). When John’s old friend Graham (a magnetic, Cannes-award-winning James Spader) comes to town, Ann is drawn to the soft-spoken outsider, eventually uncovering his startling private obsession: videotaping women as they confess their deepest desires. A piercingly intelligent and flawlessly performed chamber piece, in which the video camera becomes a charged metaphor for the characters’ isolation, the Palme d’Or–winning sex, lies, and videotape changed the landscape of American film, helping pave the way for the thriving independent scene of the 1990s.
