Breathless: 50th Anniversary
Michel Poiccard (Jean-Paul Belmondo) is a petty Parisian criminal who aspires to be Humphrey Bogart. After he steals a car and shoots a police officer his life starts to resemble the plots of American gangster films as he dodges cops and plans his escape from the law. His "girl" Patricia -- an American student [Jean Seberg]--is torn between following Michel and staying in Paris. Her final decision leads to a fatal conclusion and one of the most memorable endings in cinema. "Breathless" launched the careers of Godard, Belmondo, and Seberg.

George A. Romero's Survival of the Dead
Off the coast of Delaware sits the cozy Plum Island where two families are locked in a struggle for power, as it has been for generations. The O'Flynn's, headed by patriarch Patrick O'Flynn (Kenneth Welsh) approach the zombie plague with a shoot-to-kill attitude. The Muldoons, headedby Shamus Muldoon (Richard Fitzpatrick), feel that the zombies should be quarantined and kept 'alive,' in hopes that a solution will someday be found.

The O'Flynn's, who are clearly outnumbered, are forced to exile Patrick by boat to the mainland, where he meets up with a cynical band of soldiers, headed by Guardsman Sarge (Alan Van Sprang). They join forces and return to the island, to find that the zombie plague has fully gripped the divided community, and the body count is rising.

Starring Devon Bostick, Kathleen Munroe, Kenneth Welsh, Athena Karkanis, Julian Richings

strong zombie violence/gore, language and brief sexuality

Kites: The Remix
"Kites" is a compelling romantic saga that goes beyond barriers, boundaries and cultures. It is a story of passion that defies every rule, of a relationship that takes two lovers on a thrilling journey filled with precious moments -- and unexpected betrayal.

Officially billed as "A Brett Ratner Presentation," Ratner's version of "Kites", as its title suggests, is a true remix, in that it is the same film played to a different rhythm running at a swift 90 minutes (40 mins shorter).

Starring Hrithik Roshan, Bárbara Mori, Kangana Ranaut, Nicholas Brown, Luce Rains

Genre - Action/Adventure

Micmacs (Micmacs a tire-larigot)
Bazil doesn't have much luck with weapons. The first made him an orphan, the second holds him on the brink of sudden, instant death.

Released from the hospital after his accident, Bazil is homeless. Luckily, he is taken in by a motley crew of junkyard dealers. The group's talents and aspirations are as surprising as they are diverse: Remington, Calculator, Buster, Slammer, Elastic Girl, Tiny Pete and Mama Chow.

Then one day, Bazil recognizes the logos of the weapons manufacturers that caused all of his misfortune. He sets out to take revenge, with the help of his faithful gang of wacky friends.

The gang relives the battle of David and Goliath, with all the imagination and fantasy of Buster Keaton.

Starring Dominique Pinon, Dany Boon, Yolande Moreau, André Dussollier, Jean-Pierre Marielle
