"SHAFT is the next chapter in the film franchise featuring the coolest private eye on any New York City block.

JJ, aka John Shaft Jr. (Jessie T. Usher), may be a cyber security expert with a degree from MIT, but to uncover the truth behind his best friend's untimely death, he needs an education only his dad can provide. Absent throughout JJ's youth, the legendary locked-and-loaded John Shaft (Samuel L. Jackson) agrees to help his progeny navigate Harlem's heroin-infested underbelly. And while JJ's own FBI analyst's badge may clash with his dad's trademark leather coat, there's no denying family. Besides, Shaft's got an agenda of his own, and a score to settle that's professional and personal."

Luce (August 2, 2019)


Director: Julius Onah

Starring: Kelvin Harrison Jr., Naomi Watts, Tim Roth, Octavia Spencer, Brian Bradley, Andrea Bang, Norbert Leo Butz, Marsha Stephanie Blake, Noah Gaynor, Omar Brunson, Christopher Mann


"Certain to be one of the most talked-about films of the year, LUCE is a smart psychological thriller that will leave audiences breathless.

An all-star high school athlete and accomplished debater, Luce (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) is a poster boy for the new American Dream. As are his parents (Naomi Watts and Tim Roth), who adopted him from a war-torn country a decade earlier. When Luce's teacher (Octavia Spencer) makes a shocking discovery in his locker, Luce's stellar reputation is called into question. But is he really at fault, or is Ms. Wilson preying on dangerous stereotypes?

Stacked with amazing performances and adapted from JC Lee's acclaimed play, director Julius Onah has created an intense, multi-layered and deeply entertaining look at identity in today's America."

Starring: Lauryn Canny, Bryan Batt, Nora-Jane Noone, Cooper Andrews, Pollyanna McIntosh

However, Darlin' holds a secret darker than the "sins" she is threatened with, and she is not traveling alone. THE WOMAN, equally fierce and feral, who raised her is ever present and is determined to come for her no matter who tries to step in her way.

Continuing the twistedly vicious adventure of Lucky McKee's cult hit THE WOMAN, DARLIN' sees standout star Pollyanna McIntosh both in front of and behind the camera, expertly commanding an all-consuming feast on the senses and sensibility in equal measure."

The Quiet One (June 21, 2019)


Director: Oliver Murray


"Throughout his three-decade career as a founding member of and bassist for The Rolling Stones, Bill Wyman was known to the world as the "quiet one" in the band. Now, the famously private music legend speaks out about his extraordinary life and experiences as part of "the greatest rock and roll band in the world."

Opening up his vast personal archive -- a lifetime's worth of previously unseen home movies, photographs, and memorabilia -- Wyman reflects on his early years with The Stones, the band's meteoric rise to fame, and his search for a sense of "normalcy" amidst the whirlwind of sex, drugs, and rebellion. Endearingly humble and down-to-earth, Wyman pulls back the curtain to offer a one-of-a-kind perspective on life as a reluctant rock star."
