GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team-the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits-Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand-with the galaxy's fate in the balance.

TROPHY WIFE

From the makers of blockbuster hits “A Secret Affair” and “No Other Woman” come a new adult-themed sure crowd-pleaser.

Lani (Cristine Reyes) is a mysterious woman who had a relationship with Chino (Derek Ramsay). Now the trophy wife of Derek’s brother, Sammy (John Estrada), Lani is in cahoots with Derek’s current girlfriend, Gwen (Heart Evangelista) as she plots revenge on her ex.

Discovery the dark mystery behind Lani’s character. Who is she really? What does she want? Who will she end up with, Chino or Sammy? What role does Gwen play in Lani, Chino and Sammy’s lives?

POSSESSED

A group of college students picks a remote Chinese cemetery as a filming location for their short movie 'senior-year' project. What was meant to be a sad romantic story turns into a horror film when the inaugural shooting date coincides with the Chinese Ghost Festival. The real terror begins when Ji (Apittha Mean Klaiudom), a mysterious girl, who just joined the crew gets possessed by a forlorn spirit. The evil spirit wants the crew to help it to do something...or they won’t be able to leave the place...forever!

BLOOD WIDOW

Laurie and Hugh are a successful young couple who have just closed on a weekend home away from the city. Unbeknownst to them, the neighboring property contains the crumbling remains of a boarding school that was shuttered in the wake of an unspeakable massacre. The sole survivor of that massacre still resides in the ruins of the school, hiding from the world and wanting only to be left alone. When Laurie and Hugh's friends explore the property, they have no idea that they disturbed an emotionally-broken killing machine: The Blood Widow.

ENEMY

University lecturer Adam (Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal) nearing the end of a relationship with his girlfriend Mary (Mélanie Laurent). One night, while watching a film, Adam spots a minor actor who looks just like him. Consumed by the desire to meet his look-alike, Adam tracks down Anthony, an actor living with his pregnant wife Helen (Sarah Gadon) and engages him in a complex and dangerous struggle. Directed by Denis Villeneuve (the Academy Award nominated director of Incendies), and based on the novel The Double by Nobel Laureate author José Saramago, the film is a haunting and provocative psychosexual thriller about duality and identity, where in the end only one man will survive.
