Wonder Woman – Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.

Watch the movie with extra footage not seen in theaters. It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition – “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate

Edition” includes approximately 30 minutes of extended footage never-before-seen in theaters! From director Zack

Snyder comes “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” starring Oscar® winner Ben Affleck (“Argo”) as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Henry Cavill (“Man of Steel,” “The Man form U.N.C.L.E.” as Superman/Clark Kent in the characters’ first big-screen pairing. Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Man of Steel – Superman takes to the skies once more as Henry Cavill dons the mantle of the Man of Steel — wrestling with a past he can’t comprehend and a future he cannot escape. With an all-star cast that includes Diane Lane and two time Oscar® winner Kevin Costner (“Dances With Wolves”) as Clark’s earthbound parents; Oscar® winner Russell Crowe (“Gladiator”) as Superman’s Kryptonian father; Amy Adams as Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane; Laurence Fishburne as editor Perry White; and Michael Shannon as Superman’s otherworldly archenemy General Zod, the sky’s the limit for the last son of Krypton. Alive with the directorial stylings of 300’s Zack Snyder and the production team behind Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, Man of Steel offers up an entirely new Superman: alienated, misunderstood, but forever a beacon of hope for all humanity.
