Rush Hour 3

In the heart of Paris lies a deadly secret. Half a world away in Los Angeles, Ambassador Han (Tzi Ma) is about to disclose it. In his possession is explosive new evidence about the inner workings of the Triads — the most powerful and notorious crime syndicate in the world. The Ambassador has discovered the identity of Shy Shen, the very crux of the wide-ranging crime ring and he’s about to reveal it to the World Criminal Court — until he is silenced by an assassin’s bullet.

The Triads will go to any lengths to make sure their secrets stay buried, and there’s only one hope for stopping them. LAPD Detective Carter (Chris Tucker) and Chinese Inspector Lee (Jackie Chan) are back — back where they don’t belong. The unlikely duo is headed to the City of Lights to stop a global criminal conspiracy and save the life of an old friend, Ambassador Han’s now-grown daughter, Soo Yung (Zhang Jingchu).

Up against threats of foreclosure and declining enrollment, Charlie is forced to call on his estranged father Col. Buck Hinton (Richard Gant), to help bring the camp together and teach everyone about teamwork, perseverance and the power of forgiveness.

Creatures, bound the blood of the wolf, that can kill with curses and move at lightening speed, watching the night sky for the rise of the blood-red crescent moon. They are Skinwalkers.

On his 13th birthday, Timothy (Matthew Knight), a half-blood, is about to reach the time of his transformation. He’s been guarded since birth by those around him. They know the power he holds. He alone has the power to control the destiny of his family, and their kind.

There are two warring factions — one would like the curse to end, the other embraces bloodlust, and revels in the immortal freedom of the beast within. They will do anything to preserve their way of life.

To survive, it means finding the boy — the one with the power to control their very survival. Under the full red moon, the violent feud pits brother against brother, lover against lover and good against evil.

Stardust

A young man named Tristan (Charlie Cox) tries to win the heart of Victoria (Sienna Miller), the beautiful but cold object of his desire, by going on a quest to retrieve a fallen star. His journey takes him to a mysterious and forbidden land beyond the walls of his village.

On his odyssey, Tristan finds the star, which has transformed into a striking girl named Yvaine (Claire Danes). However, Tristan must also overcome the evil witch, Lamia (Michelle Pfeiffer), who needs the star to make her young again.

As Tristan battles to survive these threats, encountering a pirate named Captain Shakespeare (Robert De Niro) and a shady trader named Ferdy the Fence (Ricky Gervais) along the way, his quest changes. He must now win the heart of the star for himself as he discovers the meaning of true love.

The Bourne Ultimatum

All he wanted was to disappear. Instead, Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) is now hunted by the people who made him what he is — a legendary assassin. Having lost his memory and the one person he loved, he is undeterred by the barrage of bullets and a new generation of highly-trained killers. Bourne has only one objective — to go back to the beginning and find out who he was.

Now, in the final chapter of this espionage series, Bourne will hunt down his past in order to find a future. He must travel from Moscow, Paris and London to Tangier and New York City as he continues his quest to find the real Jason Bourne — all the while trying to outmaneuver the scores of cops, federal officers and Interpol agents with him in their crosshairs.

Rod lives at home with his loving mom Marie, jerk of a stepfather Frank and nerdy stepbrother Kevin. He doesn’t have a job, and can usually be found doing stunts on his moped, attempting to jump over everything from milk trucks to public swimming pools. Rod and his team — Dave, the mechanic; Rico, the ramp builder and Kevin, the team manager/videographer — are inseparable. It’s almost like they share a brain.

Salt-of-the-earth widower Larry wants just one thing: to protect his family. His buddy Chuck also wants one thing — to enjoy the single life.

Grateful Chuck owes Larry for saving his life in a fire, and Larry calls in that favor big time when civic red tape prevents him from naming his own two kids as his life insurance beneficiaries. All that Chuck has to do is claim to be Larry’s domestic partner on some city forms.
