Seven sisters. One identity.

In an overpopulated world, governments have instituted a One Child Policy – making things almost impossible for septuplets to survive – and yet they do, sharing one identity in the outside world – each named for a weekday and only able to go out on that day of the week.

Then, Monday doesn’t come home…

What Happened to Monday? premieres on Netflix on August 18th.

Troubling Trailer: Child 44!

CHILD 44

1953: A disgraced Russian cop (he wouldn’t denounce his wife s a traitor) is saddled with the investigation into the ‘accidental’ death of a young boy – but the boy was clearly murdered. His investigation leads to the discovery of others, also ignored or covered up – ‘murder is a capitalist disease!’

Tom Hardy stars as Leo Demidov in the adaptation of bestseller Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith. Noomi Rapace plays Leo’s wife, Raisa, and Gary Oldman co-stars as General Mikhail Nesterov. The three must track down a serial killer in a country that refuses to admit to his existence.

Dead Man Down Twists and Turns But It’s No Girl With The Dragon Tattoo!

Dead-Man-Down

Niels Arden Oplev received near unanimous raves for his original take on The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo so it makes sense that his first film in English would be a complicated tale of vengeance. Dead Man Down, written by Fringe’s J.H. Wyman focuses on Viktor, right-hand man of crime boss Alphonse and Beatrice, the scarred victim of a drunk driver who lives with her nearly deaf mother. Viktor and Beatrice’s is the central relationship and a most unorthodox courtship.
