Rambo (Action) – Twenty years after the last film in the series, Rambo (in Thailand) and some hired mercenaries set out to rescue some missing aid workers, who are being held captive in a Burmese village.

Meet the Spartans (Comedy) – After successfully skewering Hollywood’s scariest movie (as two of the writers on “Scary Movie”), romantic comedy franchises (“Date Movie”), and Hollywood blockbusters ( “Epic Movie”), writers/directors/producers Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer now set their sights on “300.” The heroic Leonidas, armed with nothing by leather underwear and a cape, leads a ragtag group of 13 – count ‘em, 13! — Spartans to defend their homeland against the invading Persians (whose ranks include Ghost Rider, Rocky Balboa, the Transformers, and a hunchbacked Paris Hilton).
Cast: Michael Arnona, Diedrich Bader, Ike Barinholtz, Briana Barran, Natasha Blasick ; Directed by: Jason Friedberg, Aaron Seltzer
4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days (Drama) – During the course of one day in 1987 in Communist Romania, Otilia helps her friend and roommate Gabita to get a late-term abortion done (at that time, any sort of abortion, as well as any kind of contraceptive were illegal in Romania). The film is very realistic and shows the rough and gritty situation in which the girls, particularly Otilia, must make decisions and deal with their consequences. Not for the faint of heart.
