Game Night - February 23rd
Jason Bateman (the â€śHorrible Bossesâ€ť films, â€śArrested Development,â€ť â€śOzarkâ€ť) and Oscar nominee Rachel McAdams (â€śSpotlight,â€ť â€śDr. Strangeâ€ť) team up in New Line Cinemaâ€™s action comedy â€śGame Night.â€ť
Bateman and McAdams star as Max and Annie, whose weekly couples game night gets kicked up a notch when Maxâ€™s charismatic brother, Brooks, arranges a murder mystery party, complete with fake thugs and faux federal agents. So, when Brooks gets kidnapped, itâ€™s all part of the gameâ€¦right? But as the six uber-competitive gamers set out to solve the case and win, they begin to discover that neither this â€śgameâ€ťâ€”nor Brooksâ€”are what they seem to be.
Over the course of one chaotic night, the friends find themselves increasingly in over their heads as each twist leads to another unexpected turn. With no rules, no points, and no idea who all the players are, this could turn out to be the most fun theyâ€™ve ever hadâ€¦or, itâ€™s game over.
Tomb Raider â€“ March 16th
Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her fatherâ€™s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that heâ€™s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara canâ€™t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.
Leaving everything she knows behind, Lara goes in search of her dadâ€™s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. Suddenly, the stakes couldnâ€™t be higher for Lara, whoâ€”against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spiritâ€”must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown. If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name tomb raider.
