The life of an anonymous assassin takes an unexpected turn when he travels to Thailand to complete a series of contract killings. Joe (Nicolas Cage), a remorseless hitman, is in Bangkok to execute four enemies of a ruthless crime boss named Surat. He hires Kong (Shahkrit Yamnarm), a street punk and pickpocket, to run errands for him with the intention of covering his tracks by killing him at the end of the assignment. Strangely, Joe, the ultimate lone wolf, instead finds himself mentoring the young man while simultaneously being drawn into a tentative romance with a local shop girl. As he falls further under the sway of Bangkok's intoxicating beauty, Joe begins to question his isolated existence and let down his guard... just as Surat decides it's time to clean house.
The Book Of Eli (Codice Genesi)
Starring Denzel Washington, Gary Oldman, Mila Kunis, Ray Stevenson, Jennifer Beals, Frances de la Tour and Michael Gambon.
In the not-too-distant future, some 30 years after the final war, a solitary man walks across the wasteland that was once America. Empty cities, broken highways, seared earth - all around him, the marks of catastrophic destruction. There is no civilization here, no law. The roads belong to gangs that would murder a man for his shoes, an ounce of water... or for nothing at all. But they're no match for this traveler. A warrior not by choice but necessity, Eli (Denzel Washington) seeks only peace but, if challenged, will cut his attackers down before they realize their fatal mistake. It's not his life he guards so fiercely but his hope for the future; a hope he has carried and protected for 30 years and is determined to realize. Driven by this commitment and guided by his belief in something greater than himself, Eli does what he must to survive - and continue. Only one other man in this ruined world understands the power Eli holds, and is determined to make it his own: Carnegie (Gary Oldman), the self-appointed despot of a makeshift town of thieves and gunmen. Meanwhile, Carnegie's adopted daughter Solara (Mila Kunis) is fascinated by Eli for another reason: the glimpse he offers of what may exist beyond her stepfather's domain. But neither will find it easy to deter him. Nothing - and no one - can stand in his way. Eli must keep moving to fulfill his destiny and bring help to a ravaged humanity.
The Boys Are Back (Ragazzi Miei)
Starring Clive Owen, Laura Fraser, Erik Thomson, Emma Booth and George MacKay.
In the wake of his wife's tragic death, a witty, wisecracking, action-oriented, sportswriter (Clive Owen) finds himself in a sudden stultifying state of single parenthood. With turbulent emotions swirling just below the surface, Joe Warr throws himself into the only child-rearing philosophy he thinks has a shot at bringing joy back into their lives: "just say yes." Raising two boys - a curious six-year-old and a rebel teen from a previous marriage - in a household devoid of feminine influence and with an unabashed lack of rules, life becomes exuberant, instinctual, reckless and on the constant verge of disaster.
Call Of The Wild (Il richiamo della foresta)
Starring Christopher Lloyd, Ariel Gade, Wes Studi, Aimee Teegarden and Veronica Cartwright.

Nine-year-old city girl Ryan (Ariel Gade) is visiting her grandpa (Christopher Lloyd) in Montana and lamenting the lack of shopping malls when she befriends a wounded wild dog and names it Buck. As the annual sledding race draws near, Ryan and her new friends begin training Buck for the big day in hopes that he can win the gold. Can Buck's wild spirit be tamed in time for the race, or is he more comfortable out in the wilderness, running free with his four-legged friends?
Starring Sam Rockwell, Anjelica Huston, Kelly MacDonald, Brad Henke, Jonah Bobo and Clark Gregg.
Victor Mancini (Sam Rockwell) is a sex-addicted med-school dropout who keeps his increasingly deranged mother, Ida (Anjelica Huston), in an expensive private medical hospital by working days as a historical reenactor at a Colonial Williamsburg theme park. At night Victor runs a scam by deliberately choking in upscale restaurants to form parasitic relationships with the wealthy patrons who "save" him. When, in a rare lucid movement, Ida reveals that she has withheld the shocking truth of his father's identity, Victor enlists the aid of his best friend, Denny (Brad William Henke) and his mother's beautiful attending physician, Dr. Paige Marshall (Kelly Macdonald), to solve the mystery before the truth of his possibly divine parentage is lost forever.

E' un giorno d'estate del 1992 a Bologna. Il matrimonio di Luciano Baietti e Fiamma, già genitori di due bambini di pochi anni, si consuma affrettatamente. Appena il tempo di un brindisi nei bicchieri di carta e lo sposo parte in compagnia di uno strano personaggio e con un mazzo di documenti con i quali la sposa gli intesta i suoi beni immobili. Anni dopo, ai giorni nostri, i due bambini sono cresciuti: il maggiore, Paolo Baietti, lavora in un locale del centro e odia quel padre scomparso nel nulla; il figlio più piccolo, Baldo Baietti, buono e generoso, studia cinema e vive modestamente con la mamma e con Sheyla, accompagnando le due donne nei loro patetici tentativi di carriera musicale e assistendo Fiamma nelle sue frequenti crisi esistenziali. Nel frattempo, nella campagna laziale, Luciano fa la bella vita nella sua lussuosissima villa: con i soldi della ex moglie e i consigli di Sergio Bollino, vera eminenza grigia della Baietti Enterprise, è presidente e uomo immagine di una holding che vive di loschi traffici e spudorate raccomandazioni e connivenze. Ma i tempi si fanno difficili e gli appoggi iniziano a vacillare pericolosamente: la grande idea è trovare un prestanome sufficentemente ingenuo e fiducioso su cui scaricare la responsabilità delle situazioni più compromesse. Qualcuno che non sappia e non possa dire di no, qualcuno facile da raggirare, magari facendo appello a improbabili ragioni del cuore: Baldo...

Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief
Starring Logan Lerman, Brandon T. Jackson, Alexandra Daddario, Uma Thurman and Jake Abel.
It's the 21st century, but the gods of Mount Olympus and assorted monsters have walked out of the pages of high school student Percy Jackson's Greek mythology texts and into his life. And they're not happy: Zeus' lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect. Even more troubling is the sudden disappearance of Percy's mother. As Percy adapts to his newly discovered status as a demi-god (his father is Poseidon), he finds himself caught between the battling titans of Mt. Olympus. He and his friends embark on a cross-country adventure to catch the true lightning thief, save Percy's mom, and unravel a mystery more powerful than the gods themselves.
Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Max von Sydow, Michelle Williams, Emily Mortimer and Patricia Clarkson. Atmospheric psychological thriller set in a 1950s asylum for the criminally insane. It's 1954, and up-and-coming U.S. marshal Teddy Daniels is assigned to investigate the disappearance of a patient from Shutter Island's Ashecliffe Hospital. He'd been gunning for an assignment on the island for reasons of his own - but before long he wonders whether he hasn't been brought there as part of a twisted plot by hospital doctors whose radical treatments range from unethical to illegal to downright sinister. Teddy's code-breaking skills soon provide a promising lead, but the hospital refuses him access to records he suspects would break the case wide open. As a hurricane cuts off communication with the mainland, more dangerous criminals escape in the confusion, and the puzzling, improbable clues proliferate, Teddy begins to doubt everything - his memory, his partner, even his own sanity.
