On Christmas Eve, Sam and his best buddy Khalid dress up as Santa to steal as much as they can from a department store. But Sam gets cornered by some children and has to tell them a story, the story of Aladdin – his version, at least.
Taking on the character of Aladdin, Sam heads off on a voyage to the heart of Baghdad, city of a thousand and one riches. But alas, behind the colorful folklore, the people are suffering the tyranny of the terrible Vizir, known for his cruelty and his dubious breath.
Will the young thief Aladdin, helped by his genie, be able to thwart the Vizir’s diabolical plans, save Khalid, and win the heart of Princess Shallia? Actually he will. But we won’t lie to you: it’s not going to be easy!
The New Adventures of Aladdin will be on VOD on May 16th..

Chris Pratt received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday – accompanied by his on and off screen families.
While this is not the kind of news Eclipse usually covers, this is a slightly unusual case – it’s not been that long since Pratt was the pudgy fifth/sixth lead on NBC’s Parks and Recreation. Plus, Pratt’s new blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is a mere two weeks away.
Now he’s a superstar of the big screen and, as Bashful Benjamin J. Grimm would put it, ‘The idol o’ millions.’ Also, Prat went old school for the event in a three-piece suit that practically screamed Old Hollywood.
The Beguiled is Sophia Coppola’s take on the novel by Thomas Cullinan – a tale of how a wounded Union soldier is taken in by the women of a Southern girls’ school and taboos are broken while dangerous rivalries develop.
The Beguiled stars Nicole Kidman, Elle Fanning and Colin Farrell. It will be in theaters on June 30th.
A time of starvation. The Survivalist lives off a small plot of land hidden deep in forest protecting his crop from intruders with his shotgun and improvised traps. But the long years alone have taken their toll on him and he is beginning to lose his grip on reality.
One reviewer has described The Survivalist as ‘Mad Max in the countryside.’ The trailer definitely lives up that description.
The Survivalist will be in theaters and on VOD on May 19th.
