    During a sweltering summer in New York City, 13-year-old Mister’s (Skylan Brooks) hard-living mother (Jennifer Hudson) is apprehended by the police, leaving the boy and nine-year-old Pete (Ethan Dizon) alone to forage for food while dodging Child Protective Services and the destructive scenarios of the Brooklyn projects. Faced with more than any child can be expected to bear, the resourceful Mister nevertheless feels he is an unstoppable force against seemingly unmovable obstacles. But what really keeps the pair in the survival game is much more Mister’s vulnerability than his larger-than-life attitude. THE INEVITABLE DEFEAT OF MISTER & PETE is a beautifully observed and tremendously moving film about salvation through friendship and the way transformation sometimes can happen just by holding on long enough. Director George Tillman, Jr. draws indelible performances from a fantastic cast, which includes Jordin Sparks, Golden Globe® and Primetime Emmy® Award winner Jeffrey Wright, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Anthony Mackie, and Golden Globe® and Academy Award® winner Jennifer Hudson (Supporting Actress, Dreamgirls, 2006), all led by Skylan Brooks and Ethan Dizon in stunning breakout performances as Mister and Pete. The film also features new music by Alicia Keys. Codeblack Films and Lionsgate present an iDeal Partners / State Street production in association with Floren Shieh Productions / Archer Gray Productions / Cherry Sky Films / AKW Productions.

    Academy Award® winner Angelina Jolie directs and produces Unbroken, an epic drama that follows the incredible life of Olympian and war hero Louis “Louie” Zamperini (Jack O’Connell) who, along with two other crewmen, survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII—only to be caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp.

Leading the accomplished behind-the-scenes crew is 11-time Oscar®-nominated cinematographer Roger Deakins (Skyfall).

    It looks like One Direction has done it again. Two smash albums in just two years, books, movies, sold out world tours, and the constant adoration of their fans, the “Directioners”. This group has taken the world by storm and everybody knows it. Even if you’re not a fan, you cannot deny the way that clever marketing, social media, and a great look has propelled this music sensation not only to the top of the UK music charts but to the whole world in general. They won all 3 of their nominations in MTV’s music awards as well as having two out of the top five albums in the US in the same year. No modern group has done that in the Nielsen era. Their books have made it to the NY Times bestseller list and now they threaten to outdo even themselves with the trailer for their latest movie, 1D3D having just been released. This could easily be the best year yet for One Direction and it’s only February.  Since their creation at the hands of Simon Cowell, One Direction has had only one direction, straight to the top. They were formed from Simon’s show X-factor in which the boys failed the singles auditions but looked promising as a group. Thus the concept was born. Since that moment, the boys have been unstoppable. Their two world tours, 10 million and counting Twitter followers, and the fact that everything they touch seems to turn into platinum attest to their success. With the release of their latest project, 1D3D, they will manage to make yet another success.  The movie is much like the last film they did “Up All Night: The Live Tour” and fans will again be delighted with the level of access they get to the group. Not only will there be the live concerts you would expect, there are the many candid moments of the boys simply being boys. Candid moments in the bathroom, pranks, and the fun moments the group has while on tour. There are also the rumors of a soundtrack being released for the movie which could include material not yet heard by the fans. The movie gives its fans what they want, a behind the scenes look at One Direction in a way that only they see themselves. This movie should easily surpass their last one and possibly become the best selling concert movie of all time. With the possibility of new songs being released for the movie, this could make 2013 an even bigger year for the group. What could possibly be better than a smash hit in the box office, possibilities for another top 5 album, and the continued adoration from their fans still shows that this group still has only one direction, straight up.

    A brilliant and remarkably gifted 12‐year‐old is trained to become Earth’s ultimate military leader in Ender’s Game, the long‐awaited big‐screen adaptation of the classic, Hugo and Nebula Award winning novel. After surviving a devastating attack by the insect‐like Formics, the people of Earth have spent years readying themselves for a repeat attack by nurturing a new generation of child geniuses to be trained as warriors. The planet’s best and brightest youngsters are selected to attend Battle School, an orbiting space station where they compete for a chance to become a commander of the International Forces. Using advanced computer simulations and rigorous game‐like exercises, they train in an atmosphere of violence and intense competition, knowing that only one will be selected to lead. Ender Wiggins (Asa Butterfield) is exceptional, even among his extraordinary classmates. His unique combination of intelligence, empathy, and strategic brilliance makes him a standout in the classroom and in the Battle Room—a zero‐gravity playground where games of futuristic laser tag test the trainees’ strategic and physical abilities. But Ender’s singular gifts inspire envy in his fellow recruits, and the school’s commander, Colonel Hyrum Graff (Harrison Ford), deliberately alienates Ender from the other children in order to hone his individual leadership skills. An outsider at first, Ender, with his preternatural understanding of human nature gradually builds a coalition among his peers, and is soon promoted to command school—located on a distant planet once used by the Formics as a forward staging post for their invasion of Earth. Under the severe tutelage of Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley), the brilliant general who defeated the Formics years earlier, Ender is rapidly promoted to lead his fellow students in simulated war games against enemy forces. Certain that another attack by the Formics is imminent, Graff and Rackham believe they have only weeks to ready Ender to lead the International Fleet in a battle for planetary survival. But as the boy prepares to face his final test, he develops gnawing doubts about the monumental task that lies ahead. Is this the best stragefy for achieving peace? Ender’s Game is written for the screen and directed by Gavin Hood (Tsotsi, X‐Men Origins: Wolverine), based on the book titled Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card. It stars Academy Award® nominee Harrison Ford (Witness, Actor in a Leading Role, 1985; Star Wars), Asa Butterfield (Hugo, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas), Academy Award® nominee Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit, Actress in a Supporting Role, 2010), Academy Award® nominee Viola Davis (The Help, Actress in a Leading Role, 2011; Doubt) and Academy Award® nominee Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine, Actress in a Supporting Role, 2006; Zombieland) and Academy Award® winner Sir Ben Kingsley (Gandhi, Actor in a Leading Role, 1982; Iron Man 3). Ender’s Game is produced by Gigi Pritzker (Drive, The Way, Way Back), Linda McDonough (Rabbit Hole, Drive), Alex Kurtzman (Now You See Me, Star Trek Into Darkness), Roberto Orci (Now You See Me, Star Trek Into Darkness), Robert Chartoff (The Mechanic, Rocky Balboa), Lynn Hendee (The Tempest, My Country), Orson Scott Card and Ed Ulbrich (Oblivion, Tron: Legacy).

But Ender’s singular gifts inspire envy in his fellow recruits, and the school’s commander, Colonel Hyrum Graff (Harrison Ford), deliberately alienates Ender from the other children in order to hone his individual leadership skills. An outsider at first, Ender, with his preternatural understanding of human nature gradually builds a coalition among his peers, and is soon promoted to command school—located on a distant planet once used by the Formics as a forward staging post for their invasion of Earth. Under the severe tutelage of Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley), the brilliant general who defeated the Formics years earlier, Ender is rapidly promoted to lead his fellow students in simulated war games against enemy forces. Certain that another attack by the Formics is imminent, Graff and Rackham believe they have only weeks to ready Ender to lead the International Fleet in a battle for planetary survival. But as the boy prepares to face his final test, he develops gnawing doubts about the monumental task that lies ahead. Is this the best stragefy for achieving peace?
