Welcome to a Hotel for Criminals...

H O T E L   A R T E M I S
Behold, the trailer for HOTEL ARTEMIS, written and directed by Drew Pearce (MARVEL ONE SHOT: ALL HAIL THE KING) and starring Jodie Foster, Dave Bautista, Sterling K. Brown, Jeff Goldblum, Sofia Boutella, Kenneth Choi, Charlie Day, Brian Tyree Henry, Evan Jones, Jenny Slate, and Zachary Quinto.

After a heist gone bad in a near-future L.A., three armed robbers (Brown, Henry, and Choi) run to The Nurse (Foster) at the Hotel Artemis for medical attention, where membership is required and rules of conduct are strictly enforced. After arriving, they discover that a seemingly low-value fountain pen stolen in the course of the robbery turns out to be worth many times what was taken in the heist—and is, of course, uninsured criminal property. Now, the patience of the hotel management is tested as killers convene to get back the pen and kill the trio.

"Pleased to EAT you!"

T  H  E    M  E  G
A deep-sea submersible, part of an international undersea observation program, has been attacked by a massive creature, previously thought to be extinct, and now lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest trench in the Pacific…with its crew trapped inside. With time running out, expert deep sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) is recruited by a visionary Chinese oceanographer (Winston Chao), against the wishes of his daughter Suyin (Li Bingbing), to save the crew—and the ocean itself—from this unstoppable threat: a pre-historic 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon. What no one could have imagined is that, years before, Taylor had encountered this same terrifying creature. Now, teamed with Suyin, he must confront his fears and risk his own life to save everyone trapped below…bringing him face to face once more with the greatest and largest predator of all time.

Slated for release on August 10, 2018

"True love may fly into your heart!"

The Satellite Girl and Milk Cow
GKIDS proudly presents SATELLITE GIRL AND MILK COW, an action-comedy like you have never seen before. 

An out of commission satellite picks up a lovelorn ballad on her radio antenna and descends to Earth to find the source of such sincere emotions. But on the way she is caught in the crossfire of a raging magical battle and is transformed into Satellite Girl, complete with Astro Boy-like rocket shoes and weapon-firing limbs. Meanwhile, the balladeer in question - a loser 20 something at a café open mic - meets the fate that befalls all broken-hearted lovers: he is turned into a farm animal. But love knows no bounds, and aided by the wise and powerful Merlin - a wizard who has been turned into a roll of toilet paper - our duo must evade the all-consuming incinerator monster, the wily pig witch, and other nefarious adversaries in an attempt to be together. From the brilliant and slightly twisted mind of writer/director Chang Hyung-yun, SATELLITE GIRL AND MILK COW is a heartfelt and wildly entertaining commentary on the possibility for human connection in the crazy, mixed-up, post-modern world we live in.
