    Prometheus
    Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted
  • Prometheus - Tipping its hat to the Alien franchise is Prometheus, Ridley Scott's first sci-fi feature since 1982's Blade Runner. Whether or not you're familiar with the original Alien (or it's sequels and spinoffs) if you're a fan of science fiction, you'll likely highly enjoy this visually stunning and terrifying escape into the unknown. - FULL REVIEW
    Featuring: Noomi Rapace, Logan Marshall-Green and Michael Fassbender
    • Plot: A team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
  • Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted - The Zoosters are back in their latest adventure, this time traveling through several European countries evading a ruthless animal control officer by disguising themselves as circus animals. Sounds silly, and it is, but that’s the point, right? Predictable and outlandish, the entertainment is not for adults, it’s all for the kids, and in that regard, it succeeds. - FULL REVIEW
    • Featuring: Ben Stiller, Jada Pinkett Smith and Chris Rock
    • Plot: Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman are still fighting to get home to their beloved Big Apple. Their journey takes them through Europe where they find the perfect cover: a traveling circus, which they reinvent - Madagascar style.
