THE MECHANIC
opens on Friday, January 28th



Director: Simon West
Cast: Jason Statham, Ben Foster, Donald Sutherland, Christa Campbell

Arthur Bishop (Jason Statham) is a ‘mechanic’ – an elite assassin with a strict code and unique talent for cleanly eliminating targets. It’s a job that requires professional perfection and total detachment, and Bishop is the best in the business. But when his mentor and close friend Harry (Donald Sutherland) is murdered, Bishop is anything but detached. His next assignment is self-imposed – he wants those responsible dead.

His mission grows complicated when Harry’s son Steve (Ben Foster) approaches him with the same vengeful goal and a determination to learn Bishop’s trade. Bishop has always acted alone but he can’t turn his back on Harry’s son. A methodical hit man takes an impulsive student deep into his world and a deadly partnership is born. But while in pursuit of their ultimate mark, deceptions threaten to surface and those hired to fix problems become problems themselves.

BEASTLY
Opens on Friday, March 18th



Director: Daniel Barnz
Cast: Vanessa Hudgens, Alex Pettyfer, Mary-Kate Olsen, Neil Patrick Harris, Peter Krause

Kyle Kingson (Alex Pettyfer) is 17 and has it all – he’s hot, popular, rich and gets whatever he wants…but he also has a vicious cruel side, fueled by his obsession with the ‘in crowd’ and his contempt for those who don’t fit in. Prone to mocking and humiliating outcast classmates, he zeroes in on Goth girl Kendra (Mary-Kate Olsen), inviting her to the school’s extravagant environmental bash. Kendra accepts, and, true to form, Kyle blows her off in a particularly harsh fashion. She seeks revenge in the form of a spell that physically transforms him into someone unrecognizable – and horribly unattractive. The only way to reverse the curse is to find someone who will love him in his new form – a task he doesn’t think possible.

Repulsed by his appearance, Kyle’s insensitive father (Peter Krause) banishes him to Brooklyn with a sympathetic housekeeper (LisaGay Hamilton) and blind tutor (Neil Patrick Harris). As Kyle ponders how to overcome the curse and get his old life back, he chances upon a drug addict in the act of killing a threatening dealer. Seizing the opportunity, Kyle promises the addict freedom and safety for his daughter Lindy (Vanessa Hudgens) if she will agree to live in Kyle’s Brooklyn home. Thus begins Kyle’s journey to discover true love.
