Opens Friday, May 30, 2014 Synopsis: James McAvoy stars in director Jon S. Baird's outrageous comedy based on the book by Irvine Welsh, and centered on the exploits of a debauched cop on a mission to crack a murder case, earn a big promotion, and win back his estranged wife. Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson (McAvoy) is unlike any cop on the force. A pervert, a drug addict, and an irredeemable jerk, he thinks he's in control, even as his life spirals into oblivion. Now, in order to earn a major promotion, Detective Robertson will actually have to work, instead of hustling his way though each day in a haze of drugs and alcohol. Meanwhile, the harder he tries to get a grip, the further his future seems to slip out of reach. Jamie Bell, Jim Broadbent, Imogen Poots, Shirley Henderson, and Joanne Froggat co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: James McAvoy, Jamie Bell, Eddie Marsan, Jim Broadbent, Imogen Poots Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

Now Playing Synopsis: From the producers of The Usual Suspects and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind comes this topical thriller inspired by actual events involving a popular British teen drawn into a tense MI5 investigation after falling for a troubled Internet seductress. When 16-year-old Mark (Jamie Blackley) meets smoldering Rachel (Jaime Winstone) online, it's love at first chat. Before long, smitten Mark has even befriended Rachel's bullied younger brother John (Toby Regbo) -- a good kid trapped in a desperate situation. That situation becomes a matter of life or death when Rachel is brutally murdered by her abusive boyfriend. Meanwhile, as Mark and John prepare to seek revenge against Rachel's killer, they learn their actions may disrupt an important investigation by MI5. Later, Mark is coerced into committing a crime that shakes the British legal system to its very core. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Jamie Blackley, Toby Regbo, Jaime Winstone, Mark Womack, Joanne Froggatt Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review
