The World War II thriller is based on the extraordinary true story of Operation Anthropoid, the mission to assassinate SS General Reinhard Heydrich.

Anthropoid follows two soldiers from the Czech army-in-exile, Josef Gabcík (Cillian Murphy) and Jan Kubiš (Jamie Dornan), who are parachuted into their occupied homeland in December 1941.  With limited intelligence and little equipment in a city locked down under Nazi occupation, they must find a way to assassinate Heydrich, the man many saw as Adolf Hitler’s natural successor.


Morgan Freeman stars in this adaptation of Lew Wallace's 1880 novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of Christ.

A nobleman (Jack Huston) spends years toiling in slavery after a friend (Toby Kebbell) falsely accuses him of a crime. In time, he seeks revenge for the betrayal.

This version of Ben-Hur was penned by Oscar-winning 12 Years a Slave scribe John Ridley, and directed by Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter).

Captain Fantastic

Starring Viggo Mortensen, the film tells the story of a father living in the forests of the Pacific Northwest with his six young kids who tries to assimilate back into society.

Have a great weekend!
