Pick of the Week

Cloud Atlas Box Art

Cloud Atlas

Everything is connected. Tom Hanks and Halle Berry lead an all-star cast in an ambitious, sprawling epic from the creators of the "Matrix" trilogy and the director of "Run Lola Run." Drama, mystery, action and enduring love thread through a single story that unfolds in multiple timelines over the span of 500 years. Characters meet and reunite from one life to the next. Born and reborn. As the consequences of their actions and choices impact one another through the past, the present and the distant future, one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and a single act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution.

Countdown to Chaos

Frankie Go Boom Box Art

Frankie Go Boom

Charlie Hunnam, Chris O'Down and Ron Perlman star in an outrageous comedy about sibling rivalry. For decades, amateur filmmaker Bruce has tortured his awkward brother Frank with a series of embarrassing videos posted on the Internet. Bruce finally goes too far when he uploads a video of a disastrous one-night stand involving the inebriated daughter of a loose-cannon ex-movie star. To try to undo the damage, the brothers enlist the help of Bruce's transsexual computer-hacker buddy to try and save what is left of Frank's dignity.

Warm Bodies Box Art

Warm Bodies

Cold body. Warm haert. Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer star in a funny undead twist on a classic love story. After a zombie epidemic, R, a highly unusual zombie, encounters Julie, a human survivor, and rescues her from a zombie attack. Julie sees that R is different from the other zombies, and as the two form a special relationship in their struggle for survival, R becomes increasingly more human -- setting off an exciting, romantic and often comical chain of events that begins to transform the other zombies and maybe even the whole lifeless world.
