Plot Synopsis:

Quinn Driftwood (Zach Braff) is a struggling actor on the brink of 40 who has let cynicism take over his life. Quinn is depressed and fed up. At every turn, life seems to take pleasure in kicking him down. And now things are beginning to hit rock bottom:

  • Quinn may soon have to give up his Mercedes Benz in favor of a Ford Taurus.
  • If he doesn’t get cast in a big role soon, Quinn may have to forget his dream of being a successful actor and take a job at his Uncle’s Real Estate firm – where he’ll make tons of money but remain creatively unfulfilled. What a tragedy.
  • Finally, Quinn is worried that his uptight and withholding younger girlfriend Kelly (Emmanuelle Chriqui) is cheating on him with his friend/rival actor/notable tool Riley (Eric Christian Olsen).

One day, Quinn is auditioning for the role of a lifetime: The starring role in a fantasy-biopic about a young Harry Truman who fights werewolves. Quinn nails the audition and finally feels like his luck is turning around. On the car ride home he gets a call from the Casting Director: Quinn was incredible, but he’s too old for the part… Quinn is devastated.

Quinn arrives home, ready to be comforted by Kelly. He walks in and hears a noise from the upstairs bedroom of the gigantic beachfront apartment that they somehow can afford. Quinn opens the door and sees Kelly banging Riley. Yup, she was cheating.

Quinn packs up his stuff and gets ready to leave. Before he walks out the door, he hands a magnifying glass to the apologetic Kelly.

Life Or Is It 1

With nowhere to go and nothing but a Shins acoustic live-concert on the radio, Quinn is forced to return to a place he said he would never go back to:

His parents house…

Quinn’s parents Jebediah (John Lithgow) and Hannah (Blythe Danner) are the exact opposite of Quinn in every way. Jebediah and Hannah are a couple of free spirits who flit from one impulsive adventure to the next, which is great for two people, but not so great for their uptight son. Quinn basically had to raise himself – a fact that has filled him with a life-long resentment for his parents, who’s constant attempts to get Quinn to loosen up and live his life have fallen on deaf ears for 40 years.

When Quinn arrives home, all the resentment comes spilling out in an emotionally-charged argument that causes both sides to speak some harsh truths.

Life Or Is It 2

After the argument, Jebediah and Hannah tell Quinn they’re going snowmobiling for a week and they need Quinn to look after the place. On their way out the door, they tell Quinn that they got him a surprise – he should expect it to be delivered the next day.

The next morning, Quinn gets a phone call. It’s the police. They tell Quinn that his parents died in a tragic snowmobiling accident while trying to recreate the Titanic deck scene on a snowmobile going 40mph. As a devastated Quinn tries to process this information, the doorbell rings. Quinn opens the door and sees: AN ALLIGATOR.

Or to be more specific, a beautiful delivery woman named Morgan (Scarlett Johansson) holding a leash wrapped around an alligator. Morgan hands Quinn a note that reads:

“This guy has tough skin that no one can penetrate. Sound familiar? We thought you two might get along. Remember to live your life – don’t let your life live you. Love, your parents.”

It turns out, in their final act of parenting, Quinn’s parents adopted an alligator and assigned its custody to Quinn. In other words, Quinn now owns a f*cking alligator.

And so, the cynical depressed Quinn must come to terms with his parents’ death and learn to take care of this alligator (named Daniel) while discovering the truth about what makes life worth living. On his journey, Quinn will enlist the help of Morgan – who coincidentally grew up on an alligator farm and has a special bond with the animals – to take care of this creature, who’s outer shell is so thick, but who hides a warm mushy heart on the inside.

Filled with approximately nine life-affirming moments, all occurring in the middle of dramatic rain storms, “Life Or Is It” is an emotional journey that will have you re-evaluating what really matters. Lessons and metaphors about family, love, nostalgia, work, animals, water, adolescence, adulthood, childhood, television, pop culture, and dysfunction pour from ever frame of this movie. “Life Or Is It” is a movie that will have you screaming for joy into the side of a mountain and then have you jumping into a pool with all of your clothes on! Because it’s more emotional that way!

Plot Synopsis:

Terrance Malcolm (Liam Neeson) was the greatest chemical weapons expert the United States military ever had. Specializing in bomb-making and liquid poisons, Malcolm was considered the deadliest man on the planet with a beaker.

After playing a major role in the United States’ Desert Storm domination, Terrance took his wife and infant daughter on a well-deserved vacation to the African Sahara. While on vacation, Terrance’s wife was eaten by a pack of hyenas. Upon arriving at the scene and breaking the necks of all seven hyenas involved in the attack, Terrance immediately deciphered from the beasts’ dead, yellow eyes that the U.S. government had been feeding the hyenas one of the poisons he created – driving them crazy with rage and hunger as a result.

In that moment, Terrance Malcolm swore he’d never use his chemical expertise for destruction ever again.

It is now the present day. Terrance Malcolm lives a humble life with his now 20-year-old daughter Tiffany (Kate Mara). Terrance never really got over the death of his wife, and as a result, he has become extremely over-protective of Tiffany. He hates for her to go on dates or be out of his sight in general for more than a few hours.

In his spare time, Terrance applies his unequaled chemistry skills to a new passion: Instead of creating weapons and poisons, Terrance set up a lab in his basement to brew new drinks and tonics meant to be enjoyed by all.

In all of his experimenting with flavors and ingredients, Terrance has always had one ultimate goal in mind: To recreate the recipe for Hi-C’s Ecto Cooler, the delicious citrus juice that Terrance and Tiffany used to drink together when she was a small child.

On the day of Tiffany’s 21st birthday, Terrance is working on some new drink recipes when he realizes he’s finally done it: He has finally recreated Ecto Cooler. His recipe is a perfect match of Hi-C’s original. Terrance, flush with happiness, fills an elaborate bottle with his Ecto Cooler juice to give to Tiffany as her 21st birthday gift. Pocketing the recipe, lest he misplace it, Terrance goes out to pick up balloons and a cake before Tiffany returns home later…

At the grocery store, Terrance runs into Meredith Ankle (Michelle Monaghan), a single mom from the neighborhood who clearly wants to book two tickets to bone city with Terrance. She tells him that she’s tired of waiting for him, and so she’s taking it upon herself to ask Terrance out on a date. Terrance shyly accepts and they make plans for dinner the next night.

Terrance returns home with cake and balloons and calls out for Tiffany. But Tiffany is nowhere to be found. Exploring the house for his daughter, Terrance notices that the door to his basement lab has been damaged – almost like a struggle happened there. He walks down to his basement lab and sees that all his equipment has been smashed. And the bottle of Ecto Cooler is gone.

And that’s when Terrance Malcolm’s phone rings.

On the other end of the phone is Marcellus Amici (Nicolas Cage). Amici is the leading supplier of chemical weapons to terrorist groups around the world. Marcellus was once Terrance’s assistant in the Military, but Marcellus’ hair-trigger temper caused the great chemical expert to dismiss him. Through years of study and ruthless ambition, Amici has now become the king of his field. His brilliance in chemicals is exceeded by only one man on the entire planet. (Terrance.)

Over the phone, Marcellus explains that through his research, he discovered that Ecto Cooler juice – combined with anthrax and rubbing alcohol – produced the deadliest chemical weapon in human history. A sniff of this stuff from 3 miles away would be enough to kill a man. He calls the recipe for this deadliness, “Formula 666”. And it stands to make him billions of dollars from terrorists around the world. But before he can make his fortune, Marcellus needs one thing: Terrance’s recipe for Ecto Cooler.

Terrance asks Marcellus why he would ever give him the Ecto Cooler recipe. In response, Marcellus puts a bound and gagged Tiffany on the phone. Tiffany, kidnapped at home only an hour before, screams for her Dad. Marcellus informs Terrance that in addition to taking his daughter, he also stole the only actual batch of Ecto Cooler in existence from Terrance’s lab. This batch allowed Marcellus to create just enough Formula 666 to kill Tiffany. And kill her he will, unless Terrance delivers the Ecto Cooler recipe to Marcellus in 24 hours, so mass production on Formula 666 can begin.

This pisses Terrance Malcolm right off. Telling Marcellus that he’s a man with a very particular set of chemical abilities, Terrance vows to find Marcellus and kill him. Terrance slams down the phone and one thing is obvious: It’s time to come out of retirement.

And so Terrance must storm Marcellus’ secure and deadly compound by doing the thing he does best: creating bombs and chemical weapons on the fly out of random materials and liquids he finds lying around. With each guard that he takes out, each bomb that he launches, and each viral poison that he concocts, Terrance discovers the rage that he’s been bottling for 20 years since his wife died. And the poor souls on the receiving end of that rage will have no choice but to die for getting in Terrance’s way – until the inevitable final showdown between Terrance and Marcellus determines who will come out victorious. Because when it’s chemical genius vs. chemical genius, teacher vs. student, father vs. criminal… the last batch of Ecto Cooler goes to the last man standing…

Ecto Killer is a tall, action-packed drink of juice that will have you reaching in the fridge for another glass. Filled to the brim with violence, explosions, and revenge, Ecto Killer is a brutal thrill-ride that examines what lengths a man will go to in order to protect the things he cares about. A showcase of everything we love about movies, Ecto Killer will have you THIRSTY for more!

Estimated Budget: $35,000,000

Plot Synopsis:

Greg Dingle (Jake Johnson) is a loser.

Unhappy, unmotivated, out of shape and down-on-his-luck, the only thing Greg has going for him is a girlfriend who’s had just about enough of his crap and a job he’s barely hanging on to. Greg works as a producer for “Beer In Your Backyard”, a TV show that highlights local craft beers in the Chicago area. Ratings are terrible and ad money isn’t coming in – Greg’s boss, Mr. Klaus (J.K. Simmons) thinks the show is too old fashioned for today’s youth and he constantly threatens to fire Greg.

One morning, Greg wakes up to a baseball shattering his bedroom window and he can tell it’s going to be a terrible day. And a terrible day, it is.

  • First, Greg meets his girlfriend Theresa (Olivia Wilde) for breakfast. Theresa tells a hungover Greg that she’s finally had enough and she’s breaking up with him. Worse, she’s been seeing someone else – and it just so happens that the guy is coming to pick her up. Not long after, Riley Sage (Zachary Levi) shows up to introduce himself as Theresa’s new boyfriend. He seems like a real hotshot d-bag.
  • Next, while driving to work Greg’s phone starts ringing. In the MILISECOND he picks it up to look at it, he immediately gets pulled over for texting while driving.
  • Looking for some comfort at lunch, Greg goes to his favorite bar, “The Brown Tap”, where his long-time friend (and owner of The Brown Tap) Old Papa Yango (Robert Duvall) tells him he’s going to have to close the bar for good due to lack of customers.
  • On his way back from lunch, Greg gets pooped on by a bird.
  • Back from lunch, Greg is called into his boss’ office where Mr. Klaus tells him today is the day – they’re officially canceling “Beer In Your Backyard”. Even worse, to appeal to the younger generation, they’re replacing Greg’s show with a new program called “The Bro-Zone”. When Greg asks what “The Bro-Zone” is, Mr. Klaus tells him to, “Think of lots of bros, babes in bikinis, and midgets being dared to do stuff”… As he’s leaving the awful meeting, Greg runs into the new producer for “The Bro-Zone”. It’s Riley Sage.

That night, Greg goes to The Brown Tap to drink his sorrows away. As he rambles on in misery (over 10 beers) to the beautiful but attainable bartender Ellie (Alison Brie), he has one of those moments of drunken brilliance that can change everything:

Greg is tired of being kicked in the face by life and going down without a fight. Greg knows it’s too late to get his show back. But that doesn’t mean it’s too late for Greg. So he comes up with an idea:

Greg’s going to create his own show where he tries to drink an entire keg of beer by himself in 24 hours. And he’ll put it on YouTube.

The next day, Greg runs into Riley Sage. As they talk, Riley learns of Greg’s new show. He laughs at it and makes fun of him, then lays down a bet:

If Greg’s 24 Hour Keg Drinkathon YouTube show gets more views than the first episode of “The Bro-Zone”, Riley will eat a plate of dog crap and wash it down with a glass of Axe Body Spray. If Greg loses, he has to move out of town.

With his newfound passion for life, Greg isn’t backing down. The bet is on.

The morning of the 24 Hour Keg Drinkathon, Ellie from The Brown Tap shows up at Greg’s place and says she was moved by his dedication to his idea. She wants to help him produce the show behind the scenes, while Greg stars on-screen drinking a keg’s worth of beers. Soon, the two are working together – and almost as soon, sparks are flying between them.

Finally the time is at hand: With no planned schedule, just a keg full of cold brown deliciousness, Greg sits on the couch in his apartment and prepares to drink a butt-load of beer on YouTube. He’s got a long day ahead, and almost impossible odds – but Greg realizes, as Ellie counts down 5 seconds until they go live on air, sometimes a man has to stare impossible odds in the face and burp a beer-filled burp right in their direction.

The red light on the camera goes on. And the 24 Hour Keg Drinkathon begins.

“Greg Vs. The Keg” is a hilarious underdog story about finding what you love and seeing it through. A boozy tale of picking yourself up when life kicks you down, “Greg Vs. The Keg” reminds us that when we put ourselves to the test, we can achieve greatness. The laughs and feel-good moments will be pouring out like somebody forgot to shut off the tap; “Greg Vs. The Keg” is one movie that will have you asking for a refill!

Plot Synopsis:

Dickie Stone (Emile Hirsch) is a self-serious 28-year-old legal marijuana activist in California who has dedicated his life to ending weed prohibition in his home state. Dickie’s passion for his cause has left little time for anything else in his life. While leading daily rallies and petition drives, Dickie has neglected his girlfriend Mary (Amanda Seyfried), who is inching closer to leaving him for good if he misses one more dinner date. Dickie’s best friend Boris (Aziz Ansari) is his hilarious right hand man who mainly wants weed to be legal so he can start his own marijuana-themed bakery. A typical night involves Dickie hunched over his computer, typing his latest speech, while Boris bakes weed baklava and Mary angrily watches TV, wishing Dickie would lighten up and take her out for a night of dancing.

One night, Dickie is on the way to meet Mary at their favorite restaurant for their 3-year anniversary dinner, when he gets a call from his lawyer. A group of celebrities want to make a massive donation to the upcoming Legalize Marijuana Rally and Dickie HAS to go get the money NOW – or the offer is off the table. With no choice but to go, Dickie calls Mary and tells her he’ll be late.

Dickie arrives at the address he was given and knocks on the door of a gigantic mansion. A shirtless Matthew McConaughey answers the door and welcomes Dickie in. In the kitchen, a poker game is going on between Willie Nelson, John Ratzenberger, Woody Harrelson, Meryl Streep, Daniel Radcliffe and Andy Serkis (who insists on talking like Gollum, saying it’s how his real voice sounds).

High Times Machine SceneAfter Dickie picks up the celebrities’ donation, Daniel Radcliffe is a wasted mess and insists on going to dinner with Dickie. Dickie calls Mary to let her know that Harry Potter will be joining them but Mary tells Dickie she’s had enough. He missed their anniversary dinner and that was the final straw: Mary is breaking up with Dickie.

A despondent Dickie arrives home with Daniel Radcliffe and finds a stranger breaking into his fridge. The stranger slowly closes the refrigerator door and reveals his face. Dickie can’t believe what he’s seeing.

It’s himself… from the future.

45 year old Dickie (Jack Black) has traveled back in time with a grave warning for Young Dickie: In the future, Dickie will be successful in getting marijuana legalized. But once this happens, demand for pot is so high the plant is over-harvested and weed goes extinct forever. Old Dickie explains that there is only one solution to the problem: The two Dickies need to get together and stop marijuana from becoming legal in order to save it.

The next morning, Young Dickie wakes up and sees that Daniel Radcliffe is gone. He calls Boris and together with Old Dickie they go to a diner to eat breakfast (and break the news to Boris that time travel exists and that the guy sitting next to them is Dickie from the future). While peppering Dickie with questions about the future over french toast, a figure suddenly pulls up in front of the diner and UNLEASHES a hail of machine gun fire at the three guys. He doesn’t hit them, but he does leave behind a flash drive…

The guys go home and find a video loaded on the flash drive. They play the video and a face they’ve only ever seen on the FBI’s Most Wanted list is now addressing them directly.

In his recorded message, Hernan Cortes (Benicio Del Toro) explains that as the boss of the La Rosa Cartel, he has massive investments in cocaine. He wants nothing more than for marijuana to go extinct to his product can dominate the market place. Cortes tells the Dickies that unless they stop trying to save weed, he’ll send his top lieutenant, Carlisle Kay (Brace from Showtime’s Gigolos) to hunt them down. And in case they need any more convincing, Hernan pulls Mary out from off screen and holds a gun to her head… If they don’t stop trying to save pot, Mary gets shot.

And so it’s a race against the clock for Young Dickie. A race to save his girl, to save his weed, and to save his future from the disappointing mess Old Dickie tells him it has become. Together with Boris and the always high Daniel Radcliffe, the two Dickies will have to evade the attack from Hernan Cortes, Carlisle Kay and the rest of the La Rose Cartel while fighting for their lives and everything they care about. With laughs outnumbered only by bullets, “High Time(s) Machine” is a non-stop, action-packed romp that will have you smiling like you just smoked some of the good stuff. A movie that reminds us of the best things in life, “High Time(s) Machine” is one HIT you won’t want to PASS (on)!

Plot Synopsis:

Freddie Black (Robert Downey Jr.) has blown just about every chance he’s gotten his entire life.

In the 1970’s, Freddie was the lead guitarist for one of the top local rock bands in Cleveland, Ohio, The Electric Razors. Freddie pledged allegiance to rock and roll and couldn’t bear to hear even a second of any other kind of music.

As the Electric Razors were on the cusp of breaking into the big time, Freddie’s ego and need to be in the spotlight tore everything apart.

Things between Freddie and his band came to a boiling point when the Electric Razors were given the chance to have their song used in a local radio commercial. Three-fourths of the Electric Razors were against selling out, preferring to build a reputation as serious musicians before chasing money. Freddie, on the other hand, always wanted to make the easiest, quickest buck available. During a heated argument over the radio commercial, Freddie announced he was quitting the band, only days before they were to record their major label debut.

The Electric Razors went on to become one of the defining bands of the 1970’s. Freddie would never get close to the spotlight again in the decades that followed.

Present Day. Fred Black is now one of the most successful advertising executives in the entire Midwest; nobody is better at finding the perfect song for a client’s commercial.

One day, an Apple brand executive named Janet White (Vivica A. Fox) hires Fred to create a revolutionary ad campaign for Apple’s newest product: The iBrain. After a few strategy meetings, an undeniable flirtation starts to develop between the notorious-bachelor Fred and the seemingly too-good-to-be-true Janet. Within 3 months of meeting each other, Fred knows he’s found the one and he proposes to Janet. She hesitates, telling Fred she’s got a bombshell to drop on him.

She wants to marry him. But first, Fred’s got to meet her son. And get his approval.

Jalen White (Jaden Smith) is a moody, sarcastic loner who cares about one thing and one thing only: the music genre known as DubStep. Jalen is an aspiring DubStep DJ, spending all his time in his garage, mixing new beats and samples to create electronic symphonies of sound and audio texture.

For the first few weeks of their relationship, Jalen does everything he can to sabotage Fred’s relationship with his mom – from pranks that make Fred look like an idiot (Jalen “RickRoll’s” Fred’s big work presentation) to attempts at causing real physical harm (Jalen puts glue on the gas pedal in Fred’s car).

One day, Fred has had enough. He heads down to the garage to tell Jalen to back off, when he finally gets a sample of what Jalen’s been working on. Immediately, Fred takes to this new music called DubStep…

Over the next few weeks, Fred and Jalen bond while creating fresh new DubStep compositions together. Fred, who used to think the only real music was created by a singer, 2 guitars and drum kit, now listens to nothing but DubStep. During their bonding time, Jalen lets two things slip: One, he has a crush on a girl at school. Two, there is an upcoming DubStep competition he wants to attend but can’t afford a ticket to.

Fred has one solution to both those problems: They’re not just going to GO to the DubStep competition. They’re going to COMPETE in the DubStep competition. And when Jalen’s crush sees him killing it onstage, she’ll be his forever. They’ll call themselves, “Black and White” (their last names – but also hilarious because Jalen White is black and Fred Black is white).

So Jalen and Fred begin creating the song they plan to enter into the DubStep Competition. As the song nears completion, Fred realizes something: this song would be PERFECT for the Apple iBrain commercial he’s been working on. With this song, the Apple ad would revolutionize commercials and make Fred and Jalen unthinkable amounts of money. Even better, it would make Janet look good to her bosses. What could be better?

Fred lets Jalen know his plans to use their song in the iBrain commercial the night before the DubStep competition. Halfway through his pitch, Fred can tell something’s wrong. Jalen, it turns out, isn’t into dubstep for the money. He’s in it to express himself. The last thing he wants to do is sell out.

Fred cannot believe this is happening. It’s a chance to make a ton of money while getting global exposure for their song. But Jalen won’t budge.

Soon the two guys are in a heated argument over what to do. Finally, Fred tells Jalen that because he’s the adult, he makes the final decision. They’re using the song in the commercial.  A furious Jalen tells Fred not to bother coming to the DubStep competition the next day. He’ll do it alone, just like everything else in his life up to this point….

And so, the battle lines have been drawn. A conflict with seemingly no resolution is at hand. The fate of a new family lies in the balance.

DubStep-Dad is a heartwarming, hilarious and inspiring movie about getting a second chance at the family you never knew you wanted. Filled with music, laughs, and chances for redemption, DubStep-Dad shines a light on the ways that music can bring us together – and how money can tear us apart. The goosebumps will be popping and your head will be nodding (to the beat): DubStep-Dad is one movie you’ll want to PUT ON REPEAT.

Estimated Box Office: $205,000,000 Domestic, $33,000,000 International

Plot Synopsis:

In the winter of 2008, the economy began to collapse. In the fall of 2011, the people began to rise up.

Sick of inequality, corruption, greed, and just about everything else, Occupy Wall St. started as an organic movement that gave voice to the voiceless. The 99 percent of people who we’re sick and tired of being held down. It was a protest that changed everything. The lives of the people involved, most of all…

“Occupy Wall St.” is an uplifting and romantic look at the people who gave birth to the movement. The seemingly-never ending connections between them. The laughs, tears, and moments they all share… The way a group of individuals go from 99 percent to 100….

  • Harrison (Harrison Ford) is an aging oil tycoon whose wealth is outnumbered only by his regrets. Harrison has recently learned that he is dying of AIDS. As he sits in his hospital bed, his body ravaged by the AIDS, he looks back on his lifelong pursuit of money and realizes he wasted his time on Earth. He should have been giving back to people and helping those less fortunate. All Harrison wants is one last chance to make things right before he dies of AIDS.
  • Harrison’s estranged son is Zach (Zach Braff), a cynical documentary filmmaker who’s covering the Occupy Wall St. movement just because he wants the paycheck. Somewhere along the way, Zach lost his passion. More than anything, Zach needs to rediscover what life is about and maybe rekindle his relationship with his dying father along the way.
  • Zach’s ex-girlfriend Anne (Anne Hathaway) is one of the founding members of the Occupy Wall St. protests. Anne throws herself into the movement with such dedication that she has little time for a personal life. It’s been years since she’s even been on a date. Because she’s always dressed in dirty protest clothes, guys think she’s ugly and never ask her out. If only they knew what she looked like when she cleaned up… Although, Zach remembers, and thinks maybe he wants her back…
  • Anne’s best friend Kerry (Kerry Washington) is a schoolteacher who tries her best but can never seem to make ends meet. Kerry is a sweetheart who desperately needs to harness the anger she hides into something productive – like a citywide movement perhaps…
  • Kerry is relentlessly pursued by Kevin (Kevin Hart) a hilarious taxi driver who gets involved with the Occupy Wall St. movement by pure chance as he follows Kerry through the streets of NYC, asking her out on a date at every street corner.  Kerry tells him she doesn’t think he can be serious about anything, so Kevin commits to the protests as a way to show her he can be.  Also, Kevin is Zach’s best friend.
  • Kevin’s other friend is Zac (Zac Efron), a post-collegiate slacker who charms his way through life while avoiding responsibilities at all costs. Zac is a bit of playboy who doesn’t seem to care about anything at all. Until one day, sprinting away from a one-night stand after her boyfriend came home early, Zac collides with Shailene (Shailene Woodley) on an NYC street corner. After a romantic flirtation, Shailene tells Zac he should come with to her to the Occupy Wall St. protest she’s heading to. This girl is cute so Zac says yes. Also, Zac is Anne’s brother and Shailene used to work with Kerry…
  • Shailene used to work with Kerry and is friendly with Anne (although she doesn’t know Zac is her brother). She decided to become a nurse and now she comforts patients on their deathbed. It is to her that Harrison reflects on all his regrets and she is determined to help Harrison make amends by getting him to the Occupy Wall St. protests where he can renounce his greedy ways before he dies. Because she cares for dying people, Shailene has been buttoned up most of her life. What she wants more than anything is to cut loose for once and have some fun. The kind of fun her outrageous friend Rebel (Rebel Wilson) has every day.
  • Rebel is an immigrant from Britain who came to the U.S. for a better life. Finding out that things in the states were pretty terrible too, she became a vocal (and hilarious) member of the Occupy Wall St. movement. Always the one with the megaphone, Rebel has never really been able to meet her match in life. That is, until she’s introduced to Shailene’s brother, the shy and awkward Josh (Josh Gad), who’s tagging along to the protests with them because he has nothing better to do after making a million dollars with the computer company he built.
  • Josh (friends with Zach and Kevin, cousin to Anne, former boss of Kerry, and business associate with Harrison) may be rich from his computer company, but his heart is with the protestors. Prone to saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, Josh needs a strong-willed woman in his life to care for him. And he thinks that woman might just be Rebel… He talks about Rebel with the only employee at his computer company, Selena (Selena Gomez), a rebellious computer programmer who can hack through anything…except the steel walls around her heart.
  • Selena has a tough exterior that no one has been able to crack so far. She hates rich people (except for her boss Josh) and is Occupy Wall St.’s resident tech expert. If any rich person talks to Selena, they better watch out for her fierce attitude and quick temper…But nobody told Topher that.
  • Topher (Topher Grace) is just who Selena hates most: A cocky, wall street fat-cat who lines his pocket with the tears of poor old ladies. When she’s called in to repair the computer system at Topher’s investment firm, Selena and Topher immediately start bickering with each other. But it seems under the surface there may be something more there… Something like a mutual attraction. Also, Topher is Josh’s older brother, Kerry’s ex-boyfriend and Kevin’s friend.

And like life, these crisscrossing connections form the heart of “Occupy Wall St.”. A true to heart portrayal of 21st century America, “Occupy Wall St.” has it all: From a dying man’s last shot at redemption to a schoolteacher finding a much-needed backbone (and a man). This is a film that checks off every item in the emotions handbook. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll love, you’ll outrage, you’ll find the inspiration to carry on… “Occupy Wall St.” is one film that will have you saying, “We are the 100%… of people that love this movie!”
