Plot Synopsis:

John Terry (Dwayne Johnson) is an ex-marine who has fallen on hard times.

For years, John was committed to serving his country at the cost of everything else: His family, his friends, his own life. Due to recent budget cuts, John was decommissioned from service and now works as a security guard at a local bank. It’s a low-stakes job but the only one John trusts himself to hold as he suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress-induced rage blackouts brought about by years of life in the marines.

Perhaps the biggest cost of John’s dedication to his career was his family: After missing countless birthdays, anniversaries, pageants, and family activities of all varieties due to hunting terrorists across the globe, John’s wife Sheila (Kerry Washington) had enough and left him. One week ago she moved across the country, taking their 6 year old daughter Paige, the apple of John’s eye, with her.

Now John spends his days at the bank and his nights at the local dive bar drinking and talking with the friendly bartender. Almost nightly John is hit on by local women but he always refuses in the hopes of one day reconciling with his wife. John’s plan is to save up money and move across country to show his wife that he’s ready to start putting their family first. The only frivolous expense John allows himself is his weekly lottery ticket…

One Friday, John is sitting at his usual spot at the dive bar, watching the lottery numbers come in with the bartender: Their weekly tradition. As the numbered ping-pong balls begin to collect in the chute, John slowly realizes something: These are HIS numbers. He has won the lottery. $500 a week, every week, for the rest of his life…He doesn’t have to slave away for years anymore: His new life can begin NOW…

On the televised ceremony the next morning, John collects his check from the CEO of the Lottery, Damien Hatcher (John Malkovich). In all the jubilation, John can’t help but notice a slightly sinister look in Hatcher’s eye as he hands the over-sized check to John…When the microphone is put in front of John’s mouth he excitedly tells the camera (and all those watching) that he’s heading across country to celebrate his daughter’s birthday with her next week. “I’m coming home, honey!” This is John’s last chance. If he disappoints his family again, there will be no hope of being a part of their life.

The following day John buys a new car to make the drive across country. However, as the salesman who was sitting in the driver’s seat showing John all the features begins to exit the car and hand the keys to John, the vehicle EXPLODES. John is blown back 20 feet. The salesman is now a million pieces of dust. Suddenly, 5 heavily-armored men pull out of a van and begin shooting at John. This is all John needs to snap into one of his rage blackouts. He PUMMELS the 5 men using only his bare hands. They never stood a chance. Once he drops the last shooter, he sees that the man was carrying an Official Lotto ID badge in his pocket…John, it appears, is being hunted.

John Terry is now on the run. The only money he has are the $500 payments that are directly deposited to his bank account at the beginning of each week. It’s not much, but if he can keep himself alive, his funds will continue to grow.

The first place John goes is to his old marine buddy’s secret apartment. Charlie Nelson (Seth Green) was the marines’ tech expert before he was expelled for downloading pornography on government computers. Now he spends his days hacking into the mainframe of fortune 500 companies and selling their information on the digital black market. Charlie is a goofy, hyper, nerdy guy but there’s no one more dangerous with a computer. As John stands over his shoulder, Charlie uses their only clue (the Lotto Id Badge) to hack into the Lotto’s system.

He discovers that a hit has been placed on John Terry’s life so that the Lotto doesn’t have to pay him his money every week.

As this information flashes across the screen, John get’s a call on his cell phone. It’s Lotto CEO Damien Hatcher. Damien tells John they have his family hostage. They’re holding them at the Lotto Headquarters. John must give up or his family will be killed. To make it easy for John, Hatcher tells him he has sent a team of mercenaries led by John’s former best friend in the marines, Jake Bennett (John Cena) to kill him. Simply let the mercenaries do their job and take him out, and John’s family will be released unharmed…

John slams his phone down in anger. He’s let life beat him down for too long. Now he’s going to fight back. John Terry is going to travel across the country while being hunted by mercenaries who know him better than anyone else, and infiltrate the Lotto Compound. He’s going to get his family back. And he’s going to kill Damien Hatcher.

Death Lotto is an explosive and violent action movie that takes a look at what a man is capable of when he decides to take control of his life and fight back against those who want to hold him down. As John Terry uses his marine skills to form a one man army, ass-kicking his way across the nation to his final destination, he’ll be challenged to vanquish not only his enemies and former friends but his own inner demons as well. Death Lotto is a story of a man on a mission that will have you feeling like you won the action movie lottery!

On the morning of October 15th, 2009 a balloon took to the Denver skies and flew into the hearts of a nation desperately in need of hope and inspiration.

While the helium-filled UFO-shaped balloon reached heights of over 7,000 feet and soared more than 50 miles over the clear blue Colorado skies, the country turned on their televisions and soon learned a shocking twist: a boy was in the balloon.

Fearing the worst, authorities frantically attempted one rescue mission after another, each try less successful than the last. The national news media covered the story with bated breath as the nation was introduced to its newest hero: 6 year old Falcon Heene (Shiloh Jolie-Pitt). Falcon, we soon learned, was an adventurous spirit born to a family of storm-chasers and alien hunters. The sweet boy who took flight in the balloon on that fateful day was a representation of all of us: The desire to escape; the will to dream of things never seen or done before; the heart and courage of freedom.

After an hour-long flight during which there was no sign of Falcon, the balloon finally touched down and authorities feared the worst. However, as paramedics rushed to the scene they discovered that Falcon was nowhere to be found. The flight of Balloon Boy had ended. But the mystery had only just begun.

In the aftermath of what soon became known as the Balloon Boy Hoax, there were questions to be answered. Chief among them, what role did Falcon’s desperate-for-the-spotlight parents Richard (Matthew McConaughey) and Mayumi (Michelle Monaghan) play in the ruse? Why did Falcon vomit in his father’s lap while being interviewed on national television? Could a nation ever forgive the boy who fooled us into realizing that we are destined for greatness? Could we, as a country, ever come to terms with the fact that even though Falcon Heene was not actually up in the balloon on that beautiful October morning in the Mile High City, the example he set would lift us collectively up higher than the clouds?

The Boy in the Balloon is a story of the child inside all of us. Experience the pain as Larimer County Sherriff Jim Alderden (Josh Lucas) slowly puts the puzzle together that reveals the truth behind the flight. Relive the trauma of a child being led to deceive the entire world by his parents. And experience the redemption that can only come when a nation learns what it is to dream again…and to forgive those who had to deceive in order to lead them to that realization.

The Boy in the Balloon is the heart-warming true story of Falcon Heene, The Balloon Boy, young adventurer with a heart of gold who came of age and brought the entire country along with him on his journey. While your tears will undoubtedly fall, the Boy in the Balloon will let your spirits soar.

Oliver Platt as Chief of Staff Bud Wentworth

Estimated Budget: $120,000,000

Estimated Box Office: $300,000,000 Domestic, $150,000,000 International

Plot Synopsis:

United States President James Marshall is coming to the end of a historic first four years as Commander in Chief. No President has ever faced a more stressful and dangerous first term than Marshall and it shows: The President looks a full decade older than he did when he first took office.

Now, in the midst of a struggling economy and tense relations in the Middle East, the President is running for a second term with an approval rating hovering right below 50%.

Making his re-election an even more difficult proposition, the challenger is a first-term Senator from California, Robert Huntley, who seems to have it all: Looks, Charisma, and an increasingly popular (and controversial) plan for America that would see the country become a police-state where everyone is under constant surveillance for the sake of public safety. Senator Huntley has been a staunch critic of Marshall and his campaign rhetoric is gaining supporters at a rapid pace that could spell danger for the President’s chances at re-election.

The President and his challenger meet for the first time in a televised debate taking place in Seattle, Washington to discuss the issues. The debate is heated and contentious and Senator Huntley’s smooth delivery and made-for-tv face seems to earn him the night’s victory.

As the debate reaches its conclusion, an announcement comes over the loud speakers in the auditorium: The activist group “Unknown” has taken over the venue and they are now threatening to blow up the auditorium, the President’s motorcade, and the Senator’s campaign plane. The only thing they were unable to gain access to, it seems, is Air Force One.

The President’s staff rushes him out of the auditorium and onto Air Force One for immediate take-off. Just as the plane begins moving, the President orders them to stop and pick up Senator Huntley and his campaign team so they can also safely escape.

Up in the air, the President and Senator Huntley enjoy a post-debate drink together and while the conversation is cordial and awkward, they seem to reach a place of mutual respect. At one point, Senator Huntley excuses himself to go to the bathroom.

Finally, the “Unknown” group’s full plot becomes clear: Senator Huntley and his campaign team break into the weapons storage locker and hi-jack Air Force One. In the ensuing blood bath they take out all of the President’s security team and the plane’s pilots, leaving only a few of the President’s staff and media team as well as his Wife and Daughter, alive to be held as hostages. Before they get to the President, however, he manages to hide in a secret vault located in the plane’s lower deck.

Believing the President exited the plane via escape pod, Senator Huntley makes his demands: The President must concede the election or he will kill everyone left on board Air Force One.

And so, knowing that he is the only hope for the people on board Air Force One, as well as the only hope for the country to escape the rule of a tyrant, President James Marshall must take back his plane from a team of highly trained assassins. Using survival skills gained from his past as a war hero and his experiences of rescuing his plane from terrorists once before, President Marshall must fight with everything he’s got to execute a Presidential beat-down that forces Senator Huntley to GET OFF HIS PLANE.

Air Force One 2 is an action-packed sequel that doesn’t let up until one man stands alone as the leader of the free world. Air Force One 2 will have you paging your flight attendant to ask for more!

and

Vincent Cassel as Pierre Lassange

Estimated Budget: $55,000,000

Estimated Box Office: $150,000,000 Domestic, $102,000,000 International

Plot Synopsis:

Washington DC Special Agents Colt Jeffries (Keanu Reeves) and John Grand (Paul Walker) are the top cyber-terrorism defense agents in the world. The two partners and best friends have revolutionized the Cyber Terrorism Defense Department (CTDD) that was built by their gruff-yet-brilliant boss, Cyber Chief David Millar (Al Pacino), two decades ago.

Millar has spent his career fighting one administration after the next that feels his department’s budget could better be spent elsewhere and it has been his championing of Jeffries and Grand’s successes that secured funding for years. Millar has always planned to name both Jeffries and Grand his co-successors when he retires at the end of the year.

In addition to being the top digital crime fighters in the world, Jeffries and Grand are also expert Base Jumpers who spend their free time challenging each other to jumps of escalating risk and danger.

After months of hunting, Jeffries and Grand have finally cornered Pierre Lassange (Vincent Cassel), a famous cyber-terrorist who has been leaking classified US government documents to the public for years.

The night of the raid on Lassange’s estate, it’s discovered that Lassange is holding Colt’s wife Kelly hostage and that he’ll only let her go if the two agents allow him to escape. A gun-fight breaks out and in the chaos that follows John Grand captures Lassange while unknowingly letting Kelly Jeffries fall to her death. Colt is inconsolable when he discovers that his wife died and although he doesn’t put the blame on John for her death, he has a look in his eye that is unsettling. Like something has snapped in his mind.

While transporting Lassange to Cyber-Terrorism Defense headquarters in DC, the terrorist escapes using a highly coordinated attack on the SWAT van carrying himself, Jeffries and Grand.

Worse yet, once the two agents return to HQ they discover that Lassange has framed Jeffries for the death of his own wife using digitally altered surveillance footage. This footage convinces a jury who, despite testimony from John Grand in his defense, sentences Colt to life in prison.

It’s 10 Years Later.

John Grand is on top of the world. Dating the beautiful Alison Shipe (Blake Lively), Grand has now taken over the CTDD from Chief David Millar, who retired once his appeal to get Colt Jeffries released from prison failed.

Grand has been preparing for months for the biggest moment of his career: The 7 largest economies on Earth have agreed to consolidate their national budgets into one digital bank account in order to serve the better interests of the entire world. Grand has been tabbed by US President Odell Muskegon (Robert De Niro) to oversee this transaction – the largest in human history. To help him with this massive undertaking, Grand has brought David Millar out of retirement to act as a consultant.

The night the global transaction is to take place, there is a breakout at the maximum security Washington DC International Prison. During the breakout, it’s discovered that Colt Jeffries was killed by police guards.

In an elaborate ceremony, the leaders of the 7 nations participating in the initiative all deposit their nation’s fortune into the global joint bank account. However, after several agonizing minutes waiting for their money to appear in the account, the entire world soon realizes that the bank account is empty: The money never got there.

After frantically following the trail of the missing money, all signs point to one man: Cyber-Terror Defense Chief John Grand.

The last person to realize that it looks like John Grand stole the global economy is John Grand. Because, as it turns out, he actually had nothing to do with it. Shortly after the police begin banging down his door, John gets an anonymous phone call: It’s from Colt. He’s alive.

Colt has become unhinged during his 10 years unjustly locked in prison and he blames both his incarceration and his wife’s death on his former best friend. So he broke out of prison, faked his own death, stole the entire global economy, and used his cyber-terror skills to steal John Grand’s identity and frame him for the crime. And worse yet, he plans to commit a string of digital crimes using Grand’s identity until Grand is sent to prison for life, just like Colt was.

So John Grand sets out across Washington DC to hunt down his best friend (and the only man in the world with comparable cyber-terror skills) while the rest of the world hunts for Grand himself. He must stay under the radar and operate alone in order to restore his name and save the global economy.

Using the encrypted phone left for him by Colt, Grand has a series of conversations with Colt that reveal his former partner’s insane world view and globe-threatening plan. With each conversation, Colt reveals new clues about his plan and current location. Many chase scenes occur: both on foot and in mid-air while the two men base-jump off the many high landmarks found in Washington DC to escape the things that hunt them.

While this takes place, President Muskegon, facing a global controversy, demands that the Cyber Terror Defense Department be shut down. But David Millar, who’s confident of John Grand’s innocence, fiercely fights for the survival of the organization that he built. Thus, while Colt Jeffries and John Grand wage their own war, the President and Millar engage in a series of intense arguments that could determine the fate of the entire planet.

Identity Theft is a tense, action-packed psychological game of digital cat and mouse that showcases two generations of legendary actors at the peak of their powers. From the halls of congress to the top of the Washington Monument for a climax that finds two former best friends battling in mid-air as they base-jump from one of our nation’s oldest symbols of freedom, Identity Theft will have you on the edge of your computer chair. When these iconic actors face off to save (or destroy) the world, you won’t be able to click away!

Damon Wayons Jr as J.T. Smith

Estimated Budget: $20,000,000

Estimated Box Office: $80,000,000 Domestic, $45,000,000 International

Plot Synopsis:

Detective Joe “Coffee” Coffinski is a tough-as-nails New York City lawman who has no problem breaking the law in order to enforce it. Tormented by inner demons, Det. Coffinski is ruthless in his pursuit of criminals, as if each new thug he puts behind bars will help make up for the mistakes he has made in the past and provide salvation for his massively damaged psyche.

The amount of criminals Coffinski has put behind bars is outnumbered only by his own personal issues: 10 years ago, Coffinski was providing lookout during a raid on a drug warehouse of the Gambini Crime Family, the biggest criminal organization in the city, for his partner and best friend of 20 years, JT Smith (Damon Wayans Jr.). While waiting outside in a surveillance van, Coffinski fell asleep and was unconscious when his partner was discovered and ultimately killed. JT Smith was screaming for backup the entire time he was being executed. Since that day Joe Coffinski promised to never fall asleep on the job. As a result, he developed a severe addiction to coffee that haunts his every waking moment.

10 years later Coffinski can’t go 10 minutes without a fresh cup of the caffeinated brown stuff. He’s constantly jittery, excitable, and prone to sudden bouts of rage – which are usually directed at the latest perp he has chased down. His methods have crossed the line of moral and legal responsibility more and more with each year. Beating criminals into confession, shooting guns in residences to scare witnesses out of hiding, threatening old women, Coffinski will stoop to any level to catch the bad guys. Worse yet, Coffinski is on the take: The Columbian Bean Cartel provides Joe with a fresh shipment of their premium brew every month in return for him turning a blind eye to the untaxed coffee shipments that come to the NYC port every day.

His massive addiction has other negative consequences for Det. Coffinski as well: Because he drinks so much coffee, he’s awake at all hours. With nothing else to do at night, Coffinski began gambling on overseas horse races all night, every night. Soon he accrued huge gambling debts that caused his wife Pamela (Drea de Matteo) to walk out on him. The last bit of keeping-it-together Joe could manage was gone the minute Pamela left. Fueled by premium Columbian Cartel coffee Coffinski began finishing his nightly gambling jags with visits to the city’s seediest strip clubs.

One morning after an all-night coffee bender a file comes across Joe Coffinski’s desk: The Gambini crew has begun selling dangerous (and dangerously addicting) sleeping pills to teenagers. And what’s more: The police finally have a suspect who may be able to point them to Richie Gambini, the head of the Gambini Crime Syndicate and the man who personally put the fatal bullet in JT Smith’s head. The suspect turns out to be a stripper named Melody Walker (Olivia Wilde). Joe is a frequent customer of Melody’s, a tough young woman with a hard outer shell who might just be secretly hiding a heart of gold.

So Detective Joe Coffinski sets out to take down crime in New York City once and for all. Joined by the vulnerable but savvy stripper-turned-witness, Coffinski will take matters into his own hands to attempt to save the city from filth before his own dirty deeds result in his own personal undoing.

Cop of Joe is a dark, gritty, violent tale of the contemporary issues we face both as individuals and as a society. The brutal saga of Joe Coffinski is an examination of how sometimes our own worst impulses can become both our undoing and our salvation. Because sometimes, when the coffee cup of life is empty, a man has to brew up his own pot… of justice!

Plot Synopsis:

After Tony Soprano was gunned down in a diner while eating dinner with his family, it’s up to his son A.J. (Robert Iler) to take over the family business and seek revenge.

As the entire organized crime syndicate in the Northeastern United States fights to fill the massive hole left by Tony’s death, A.J. must take the reigns of the Soprano crime family in order to maintain the power and influence that his father had established.

Threats to the family are coming from all angles as crews from both New York and New Jersey are attempting to shut down Soprano Family operations and put their own in place. A.J. must rely on a few loyal lieutenants, including best friend and consigliere Slick Joey Benzo (Josh Peck), his father’s old Capo Paul “Paulie Walnuts” Gualtieri (Tony Sirico), family friend Artie Bucco (John Ventimiglia), and Hollywood actor turned mob enforcer Daniel Baldwin (playing himself), to maintain the Soprano Family foothold in New Jersey mob activity.

While external threats mount, A.J. is also fighting fierce internal battles with his own demons as he struggles with the depressive tendencies passed down by his father. A.J. recently began seeing an Italian psychiatrist named Gina Fellini (Giada de Laurentiis) after being plagued by several nights of dreams in which a Billy Big Mouth Bass toy fish began dispensing oblique metaphorical lessons in the voice of his father’s old associate, Salvatore “Big Pussy” Bonpensiero (Vincent Pastore).

To further complicate matters, while clubbing one night, A.J. develops an undeniable (and mutual) attraction to New York mafia princess, Vicky Guliatta (Minka Kelly) who’s father Vincent Guliatta (Jon Voight) is the head of the New York Guliatta crime family that has positioned itself as the biggest threat to the Soprano Crew’s position in New Jersey. In addition, many of A.J.’s closest allies feel that Vincent Guliatta put out the hit on Tony Soprano. Despite knowing how dangerous a relationship with Vicky could be to him, A.J. and Vicky are soon living together and passionately dedicated to each other.

The simmering tensions among the various New York and New Jersey crimes families are sparked into an all out war when Daniel Baldwin, using his film connections, offers A.J. a lucrative pipeline to the adult film distribution industry. The Soprano Family, now involved with the ever-growing porn business, is making too much money to be left alone. As every family in the Northeast guns for them, it will be up to A.J. Soprano to defend his family, rise to the top of the organized crime world, and step out of the shadow of his father by avenging his murder.

The Sopranos: The Movie continues the legacy of the legendary HBO show. Packed with the violence and existential introspection of its television predecessor, The Sopranos: The Movie one-ups the story of Tony Soprano by exploring the even more thrilling story of his son. Thinking about missing this one? Fuhget about it!

Losing His Cool

Losing His Cool

Starring:

Bradley Cooper as Blake Miller

Mila Kunis as Emma Hart

Topher Grace as Peter Hinch

Alec Baldwin as Ed Forester

John Goodman as Congressman Roberts

Estimated Budget: $55,000,000

Estimated Box Office: $70,000,000 Domestic, $50,000,000 International

Plot Synopsis:

Blake Miller (Bradley Cooper) is a hot-shot, lady-killer Washington D.C. lobbyist who’s a winner in every aspect of life.

His career couldn’t be hotter: The drug company that Blake lobbies for, Pilzer Pharmaceuticals, produces a pill (called Awkwardim) that depletes a person of all their social skills. Blake is on the verge of a deal with the US Government to invest a billion dollars in Pilzer with the purpose of delivering Awkwardim pills to enemy spies so that they no longer have the cool and savvy to get themselves out of tough situations. Blake continually wins the spotlight of the entire industry and the approval of his hard-nosed boss Ed Forester (Alec Baldwin), much to the chagrin of fellow Pilzer lobbyist Peter Hinch (Topher Grace) who has played second fiddle to Blake his entire career.

In his love life, Blake also can’t seem to fail: Every night he beds a new gorgeous conquest that he smoothly kicks to the curb the next morning. Models, movie stars, and heiresses; it seems no one is immune to Blake’s charm.

Or, as it turns out, ALMOST no one.

Emma Hart (Mila Kunis) is the chemist at Pilzer Pharmaceuticals who first developed Awkwardim in the hopes of robbing foreign war criminals of their confidence and bravado, thereby leaving them unable to lead. Despite Blake’s many attempts to win a date with Emma she always turns him down, citing Blake’s ego, cockiness, and selfishness as deal-breakers.

On the night of the D.C. Lobbyist awards, the entire industry is present as Blake is awarded Lobbyist of the Year. While he watches an exuberant (and drunk) Blake charm the crowd during his acceptance speech, Peter Hinch decides he can no longer take settling for second place. Making up his mind on the spot, he slips an Awkwardim pill into Blake’s champagne glass, which is quickly downed once Blake returns to his table.

The next morning, Blake wakes up hungover, looks in the mirror and is shocked to discover that his vision is blurry, his face is full of acne, and his hair has inexplicably started turning red! Blake immediately heads to the Doctor’s office where he comes in contact with the Doctor’s attractive but crazy receptionist Amy (Isla Fisher) who Blake had a fling with a few months prior. As Blake tries to talk his way into an angry Amy’s good graces he realizes that he has no idea what to say to her. No matter how much he awkwardly scrambles, the smooth words that usually come so easily to him are nowhere to be found.

Over the next week Blake continues to become more and more awkward, both physically and socially. Knowing his billion-dollar deal with the US Government is due to close in 2 weeks, Blake must hide his ever-worsening “condition” so that everything goes off without a hitch. It’s during this time that of desperation that Blake, realizing he’s been doused with Awkwardim, goes to the only person he knows may be able to help him: Emma Hart, the drug’s creator.

Reluctant to help at first, Emma can’t help but be drawn to Blake’s nervousness and shyness. She’s further amused by the usually smooth Blake having such trouble navigating his former life-style. And while there is an undeniable spark between the two, Emma has recently started dating Peter Hinch who has seen his career take off ever since Blake’s troubles began. As a result, it’s up to Blake to accept himself as an insecure guy who doesn’t have all the answers so that he can complete the big deal, overcome the attempts of sabotage from his rival, and win the girl of his dreams.

What follows is a hilarious romp that explores what happens when we’re forced to shed the outer shell we present to the world and reveal who we truly are. Laugh along with Blake’s hi-jinks and awkward adventures and cheer for his emotional redemption as he seeks to win at life while “Losing His Cool”!
