Righteous Kill (A Dupla Face Da Lei)
Starring Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Brian Dennehy, John Leguizamo, Carla Gugino, Dan Futterman, Donnie Wahlberg, Rob Dyrdek and Trilby Glover.
After 30 years as partners in the pressure cooker environment of the NYPD, highly decorated Detectives David Fisk and Thomas Cowan should be ready for retirement, but aren't. Before they can hang up their badges, they are called in to investigate the murder of a notorious pimp, which appears to have ties to a case they solved years before. Like the original murder, the victim is a suspected criminal whose body is found accompanied by a four line poem justifying the killing. When additional crimes take place, it becomes clear the detectives are looking for a serial killer, one who targets criminals that have fallen through the cracks of the judicial system. His mission is to do what the cops can't do on their own - take the culprits off the streets for good. The similarities between the recent killings and their earlier case raise a nagging question: Did they put the wrong man behind bars?

Mama's Boy (Menino Da Mamã)
Starring Jon Heder, Diane Keaton, Jeff Daniels, Anna Faris, Sarah Chalke, Dorian Missick and Eli Wallach.
Eccentric Jeffrey Mannus (Jon Heder) is 29 years old and still lives at home with his mom, Jan. He sees no reason to alter this arrangement, but his perfect world is upended when Jan meets Mert, a motivational speaker. Mert successfully woos Jan and moves in on Jeffrey's territory, something Jeffrey will not tolerate. Jeffrey enlists the aid of an unlikely ally, an aspiring singer-songwriter, Nora, with an anti-establishment penchant and a soft spot for him. As the war between Mert and Jeffrey escalates, something unprecedented happens - slowly, to both his own surprise and horror, Jeffrey discovers his inner adult.
EXITOS 1 (Video-On-Demand 3)
Hell Ride (Motos Do Inferno)
Starring Larry Bishop, Michael Madsen, Eric Balfour, Dennis Hopper, Vinnie Jones and Leonor Varela.
Hell Ride is a raucous throwback to the days of the Sergio Leone spaghetti western, with a heaping helping of testosterone-fueled chopper action thrown into the mix. Writer/director Larry Bishop takes on a third role as Pistolero, head honcho of the Victors, a group of badass bikers who are out to avenge the murder of one of their members at the hands of the 666ers, a rival gang whose actions live up to their hellish moniker. Along with his cohorts, the Gent (Michael Madsen) and the mysterious Comanche (Eric Balfour), Pistolero aims to take down the Deuce and Billy Wings, menacing leaders of the 666ers, but a mutiny looms on the horizon when his commitment to profit is questioned by a few of his fellow Victors. An even larger story unravels when previously unknown information about Comanche resurrects ghosts from Pistolero's past.
The Girl In The Park (Uma Criança Desapareceu)
Starring Sigourney Weaver, Kate Bosworth, Alessandro Nivola, Kerry Russell and David Rasche.
Playwright David Auburn’s directorial debut, The Girl in the Park, is a complex drama about parents and children, loss and recovery, and the complexities and joys of family life. Sixteen years after her daughter Maggie disappeared in Central Park, Julia (Sigourney Weaver) has never recovered from the loss, and pursues a solitary existence based on rigid routine. Her son Chris (Alessandro Nivola) is trying to reconnect with his mother in anticipation of his marriage to Celeste (Keri Russell). One day, Julia encounters a troubled, alluring young woman, Louise (Kate Bosworth), who reminds her powerfully of her vanished child. The two begin a series of tense encounters, and eventually Julia takes Louise in. As their bond deepens, Julia begins to reawaken to the pleasures of life - all the while seeing everywhere clues that Louise could actually be the long-lost Maggie.
EXITOS 2 (Video-On-Demand 4)
Starring Vin Diesel, Michelle Yeoh, Mélanie Thierry, Lambert Wilson and Mark Strong.
It is the not-too-distant future. Thousands of satellites scan, observe and monitor our every move. Much of the planet is a war zone; the rest, a collection of wretched way stations, teeming megalopolises, and vast wastelands punctuated by areas left radioactive from nuclear meltdowns. It is a world made for hardened warriors, one of whom, a mercenary known only as Toorop (Vin Diesel), lives by a simple survivor's code: kill... or be killed. His latest assignment has him smuggling a young woman named Aurora from a convent in Kazakhstan to New York City. Toorop, his new young charge Aurora (Mélanie Thierry) and Aurora's guardian Sister Rebeka (Michelle Yeoh) embark on a 6,000 mile journey that takes them from Eastern Europe, through a refugee camp in "New Russia," across the Bering Straight in a pilfered submarine, then through the frozen tundra of Alaska and Canada, and finally to New York. Facing obstacles at every turn, Toorop, the killer for hire, is tested like never before, in ways he could never have imagined - as he comes to understand that he is the custodian of the only hope for the future of mankind. For the first time in his life, Toorop has to make a choice: to make a difference or walk away and save himself.
And When Did You Last See Your Father (Quando Viste O Teu Pai Pela Última Vez?)
Starring Jim Broadbent, Colin Firth, Juliet Stevenson, Gina McKee and Sarah Lancashire.
Arthur Morrison (Jim Broadbent) and his wife Kim (Juliet Stevenson) are GPs in the same medical practice in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. They have two children, Gillian (Claire Skinner), and her older brother Blake (Colin Firth), from whose perspective the story is told. Blake is 40 and married to Kathy (Gina McKee) with two children. An established author, Blake is having to face the fact that his father is terminally ill. The film opens during a summer bank holiday family trip in the late 1950s when 8 year-old Blake and the rest of his family are embarrassment by Arthur’s driving antics as he hits the hard shoulder to skip a long queue of traffic. It’s the first of many flashbacks that illustrate Arthur’s attitude to life and his pride in getting something for nothing. These childhood episodes also introduce Beaty (Sarah Lancashire) and her daughter, Josie. It soon becomes clear that Beaty and Arthur are more than just friends and that Josie is potentially Arthur’s child. Adult Blake strives to find out the truth about Josie, and in doing so uncovers the interesting parameters of his father’s marriage.
