The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other.

... But when optimistic Officer Judy Hopps arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde, to solve the mystery.

Secret in Their Eyes

Written and directed by Academy Award nominee Billy Ray (Captain Phillips, The Hunger Games), and produced by Academy Award winner Mark Johnson (Rain Man, Breaking Bad), Secret in Their Eyes is an intense, powerful, haunting thriller. The powerful ensemble cast is lead by Academy Award nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Academy Award winners Nicole Kidman and Julia Roberts.

A tight-knit team of rising FBI investigators - Ray (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and Jess (Julia Roberts), along with their District Attorney supervisor Claire (Nicole Kidman) - is suddenly torn apart when they discover that Jess's teenage daughter has been brutally and inexplicably murdered.

Now, thirteen years later, after obsessively searching every day for the elusive killer, Ray finally uncovers a new lead that he's certain can permanently resolve the case, nail the vicious murderer, and bring long-desired closure to his team. No one is prepared, however, for the shocking, unspeakable secret that will reveal the enduring, destructive effects of personal vengeance on the human soul.

Interweaving past and present, this deeply layered mystery explores the murky boundaries between justice and revenge, and asks the question: how far would you go to right an unfathomable wrong?

'Suffragette' follows the women who were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality in early-20th-century Britain and the right of women to vote. The stirring story centers on Maud (played by Carey Mulligan), a working wife and mother who comes to realize that she must fight for her dignity both at home and in her workplace. Maud's life is forever changed when she is secretly recruited to join the U.K.'s growing suffragette movement. Galvanized by the outlaw fugitive Emmeline Pankhurst (Meryl Streep), Maud becomes an activist for the cause alongside other brave women from all walks of life.

The early efforts at resistance were passive but as the women faced increasingly aggressive police action, the suffragettes become galvanized – risking their very lives to ensure that women’s rights would be recognized and respected.

Suffragette stars three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep as well as Academy Award nominees Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter, and is directed by BAFTA Award winner Sarah Gavron. And it is sure to be a major contender at this year's Academy Awards race.

Mission: Impossible -- Rogue Nation

Mission Impossible. 5. One of the reasons why we still take our eyes off what is called 'Giant'-screen TV and leave our couch to take some walk to go to the movie theaters. This time we are looking forward to watching Tom Cruise dangling from an airplane. It's only made more impressive when you remember that Tom Cruise actually performed the real stunt himself. Last time he was dangling from the tallest building of the world.

Oh... the story. Ethan and team take on their most impossible mission yet, eradicating the Syndicate – an International rogue organization as highly skilled as they are, committed to destroying the IMF.

Rest ... we'll watch in the theater. The movie is rated PG-13 and it runs for 131 minutes.
