"Happy Death Day" is a darkly humorous horror film directed by Christopher Landon ("Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse") and produced by Jason Blum ("Split", "The Purge").

Jessica Rothe stars as Tree Gelbman, a college student who is forced to relive the day of her murder until she discovers her killer's identity. Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine, Rachel Matthews and Charles Aitken co-star.

"Happy Death Day" opened in theaters on October 13th, 2017 and received mixed-to-positive reviews from critics, who praised Rothe's breakthrough performance, but considered that its Groundhog Day concept doesn't always work as well as it should and it's also not terribly original. The film topped the charts in its opening weekend, grossing $26.5 million versus a budget of $4.8 million.

kingsman-the-golden-circle-trailers-clips-featurettes-images-and-posters

"Kingsman: The Golden Circle" is a sequel to the 2014 comic book adaptation "Kingsman: The Secret Service". Co-written, produced and directed by Matthew Vaughn ("Kick-Ass"), the films are based on the comic book series "Kingsman" created by Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar.

The sequel finds the first film's protagonist, Eggsy Unwin (Taron Egerton), and the highly secretive intelligence agency Kingsman going up against a ruthless new threat, and their only hope is to join forces with their U.S. counterpart, the Statesman.

The cast also includes Colin Firth (back from the dead), Julianne Moore, Mark Strong, Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Elton John, Michael Gambon and Hanna Alström

"Kingsman: The Golden Circle" opened in theaters on September 22nd, 2017 and received mixed reviews from critics who concluded that while the original's offbeat charm is still present, it's just a "more is more" kind of sequel. The film opened with $39 million at the box-office, but has since slowed down considerably and is now trailing behind its predecessor domestically, while internationally it has grossed a solid $178.1 million, so far.

blade-runner-2049-trailers-clips-featurettes-images-and-posters

Directed by Denis Villeneuve ("Arrival"), the neo-noir sci-fi "Blade Runner 2049" is a sequel to the 1982 classic directed by Ridley Scott based on Philip K. Dick's novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?".

The film is set 30 years after the events of the original film and it stars Ryan Gosling as K, a young blade runner who discovers a long-buried secret connected to former blade runner Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) that could spark a war between replicants and humans.

The film also stars Ana de Armas, Dave Bautista, Robin Wright, Jared Leto, Sylvia Hoeks, Mackenzie Davis and Edward James Olmos.

"Blade Runner 2049" opened in theaters on October 6, 2017 and received stellar reviews from critics, who considered it a worthy continuation of a timeless classic. The film failed to make a big impression at the box-office, opening with $32.7 million against a $150 million budget. Initially it was expected to gross around $50 million. While its 163 minute running time could have been a factor in this outcome, it should also be mentioned that the original film wasn't a huge hit when it came out in 1982, either, and its reliance on nostalgia and fanbase might have been misplaced, since cyberpunk is probably not as popular as Stephen King, or "Star Wars".
