HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2
From DreamWorks Animation, the studio that brought you Shrek, Kung Fu Panda and The Croods, comes the highly anticipated sequel to the Oscar-nominated How To Train Your Dragon, based on the children’s book series by Cressida Cowell. In the thrilling second chapter of the epic trilogy, five years have passed since the heroic young Viking Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) befriended an injured dragon and forever changed the way the residents of Berk interact with the fire-breathers. Now, Vikings and dragons live side-by-side in peace on the fantastical isle that has been transformed into a dragon’s paradise.
But when grown-up responsibilities loom on the horizon, Hiccup and his faithful dragon Toothless take to the skies in search of answers. It’s much more than he bargained for, though, when Hiccup discovers that a mysterious dragon rider is really his long-lost mother Valka (Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett) and that the peace between dragons and Vikings is threatened by the power-hungry Drago (Oscar-nominated actor Djimon Hounsou) with help from the dragon trapper Eret, son of Eret (Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington).
MY ILLEGAL WIFE
Clarise (Pokwang), an OFW mother in Japan, has a desire to have a husband and father for her children. One day, Clarise bumps into Henry (Zanjoe Marudo), a simple but brusko Pinoy promodiser. She seduces him, only to end up being ridiculed and rejected. Then, they meet again in a plane going back to the Philippines. Here, an accident happens. Clarise wakes up and finds herself in an island with Henry, who now has amnesia. Clarise takes advantage of the situation and introduces herself as his wife. She makes him believe that they have been married in Japan and they are on their way to the Philippines to get married in church. After being saved, Clarise then introduces Henry to her family and friends. Will Henry learn to really love Clarise? Or, will Henry find the truth about Clarise's lies? What if Henry learns that Clarise is his "illegal wife?"
When recently divorced mother of two boys, Lauren Reynolds (Drew Barrymore), and widowed father of three girls, Jim Friedman (Adam Sandler) go on a blind date, things very quickly go terribly wrong. But after both single parents wind up in an African resort with their respective families by accident, their sour relationship suddenly takes a turn for the sweet...
Inspired by the epic story of courage, sacrifice and hope, the epic adventure Noah offers a mesmerizing visual adventure through everlasting themes of good and evil, destruction and mercy, hope, family and second chances.
The entire story of Noah, the last righteous man in a world overtaken by wickedness, violence and corruption — and the Ark he is commanded to build before earth will be destroyed, takes up just a few pages in the Book of Genesis. But those few passages have had a profound, lasting impact on billions across the globe, holding within the possibility of human redemption and hope even in the face of annihilation.
