The Machine

Opens Friday, Apr 25, 2014 Synopsis: An emerging Cold War leads to the development of a revolutionary new weapon that blurs the boundaries between man and machine. As rampant poverty plunges the world into chaos, a powerful new enemy of mankind emerges. Our only hope for salvation lies in the genius of Vincent McCarthy (Toby Stephens), the head scientist at Britain's Ministry of Defense. McCarthy has created an android prototype with unrivaled processing power and physical strength. When a programming glitch results in an unforeseen tragedy it begins to look like even McCarthy has failed in his efforts to save humanity, but with the help of artificial-intelligence expert Ava (Caity Lotz) he might just succeed in creating the world's smartest, strongest fighting machine. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Toby Stephens, Caity Lotz, Denis Lawson, Sam Hazeldine, Pooneh Hajimohammadi Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

Draft Day

Now Playing Synopsis: Ivan Reitman's Draft Day stars Kevin Costner as Sonny Weaver Jr., the GM of the Cleveland Browns. With 13 hours until the beginning of the NFL draft, Sonny is informed by the team's owner (Frank Langella) that if Sonny doesn't make a splash and generate ticket sales, he's going to be fired. That prompts the GM to take a trade offer from another team that gives him the first pick in the draft, in exchange for three furure first-round picks. The move outrages the Browns' head coach, and forces all of the team's scouts to dig up what they can find about the pick everyone, including the owner, expects them to make -- a highly touted QB from Wisconsin. Meanwhile, Weaver is drawn to a talented linebacker who has family issues to deal with and is known for having a hot temper. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi Cast: Kevin Costner, Jennifer Garner, Denis Leary, Ellen Burstyn, Frank Langella Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
