FOREVER MY GIRL

Liam Page (Alex Roe) and his high-school sweetheart Josie Preston (Jessica Rothe) were the golden couple of Saint Augustine, Louisiana, until Liam left her at the altar for a shot at fame and fortune. Eight years later, Liam returns to his tiny hometown for the first time as a world-famous recording artist, but not even his own father is thrilled to see him. As he tries to rebuild the bridges he burned years earlier, Liam reconnects with his small-town roots, his close-knit community and Josie, the girl he left behind. Based on the novel by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Heidi McLaughlin.

PG. Romance/Musical. Written and Directed by Bethany Ashton Wolf. 1h 44m.

What the Internet Says:

“Rothe and Roe have a palpable chemistry, and she makes the most of her scorned Southern belle role...‘Forever My Girl’ is truly a showcase for the British hunk Roe, who is gifted with a pair of piercing blue eyes, all the better to smolder with, and the ability to wear a T-shirt better than anyone else has ever worn a T-shirt. His Liam is tortured, bratty and ultimately broken, and because he seeks redemption, he is redeemable within the world of the story.” — The Pioneer Press

Our Take: Sugar-sweet and Nicholas Spark-esque, this uplifting love story will surely win over all of us hopeless romantics...

12 STRONG

In the wake of 9/11, Capt. Mitch Nelson leads a U.S. Special Forces team into Afghanistan for an extremely dangerous mission. Once there, the soldiers develop an uneasy partnership with the Northern Alliance to take down the Taliban and its al-Qaida allies. Outgunned and outnumbered, Nelson and his forces face overwhelming odds in a fight against a ruthless enemy that takes no prisoners. Starring Chris Hemsworth, Elsa Pataky, Rob Riggle, Michael Peña, and Michael Shannon.

R. Action. Directed by Nicolai Fuglsig. 2h 10m.

What the Internet Says:

“As a tale of the first mission on foreign soil after 9/11, it jolts you full of patriotic moments without veering into jingoistic territory... This is one of Hemsworth's best performances and it comes in a film that shows the American soldiers – and their Afghan allies – as undeniable heroes and brothers in arms.” — PhillyVoice

Our Take: Chris Hemsworth’s performance is clearly very impressive (and honestly, we’d expect nothing less from our beloved Thor). If you’re a fan of war movies and US history, this one is right up your alley...

DEN OF THIEVES

An elite unit from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department squares off against a crew of successful thieves who plan a seemingly impossible heist – the city's Federal Reserve Bank. Starring Gerard Butler, 50 Cent, Pablo Schreiber, and O’Shea Jackson, Jr.

R. Crime/Drama. Directed by Christian Gudegast. 1h 30m.

What the Internet Says:

“Gerard Butler returns to the big screen this year with ‘Den of Thieves,’ and his movie has some new tricks...With a heist plot that's sure to keep audiences on the edge of their seats, [the film] is packed with action, but all that excitement is rounded out by a fascinating character exploration seldom seen in action movies... The film's morally ambiguous characters heighten the realism as they emphasize the fact that not everything is black and white in real life.” — Movie Pilot

Our Take: “Den of Thieves” couldn’t be more gritty; there’s truly nothing misleading about it. The hyper-realistic character dynamics are also fascinating. We’ll definitely be seeing this one...
