Operation Finale. Trailer. Oscar Isaac. Ben Kingsley. Lior Raz. Melanie Laurent. Nick Kroll. Joe Alwyn. Pêpê Rapazote.

This thrilling true story follows the 1960 covert mission of legendary Mossad agent Peter Malkin as he infiltrates Argentina and captures Adolf Eichmann, the Nazi officer who masterminded the transportation logistics that brought millions of innocent Jews to their deaths in concentration camps.

Knight of Cups. Trailer. Terrence Malick. Christian Bale. Cate Blanchett. Natalie Portman.

Rick is a slave to the Hollywood system. He is addicted to success but simultaneously despairs at the emptiness of his life. He is at home in a world of illusions but seeks real life. Like the tarot card of the title, Rick is easily bored and needs outside stimulation. But the Knight of Cups is also an artist, a romantic and an adventurer. In Terrence Malick’s seventh film a gliding camera once again accompanies a tormented hero on his search for meaning. Once again a voiceover is laid over images which also seek their own authenticity. And once again Malick seems to put the world out of joint. His symphonic flow of images contrasts cold, functional architecture with the ageless beauty of nature. Rick’s internal monologue coalesces with the voices of the women who cross his path, women who represent different principles in life: while one lives in the real world, the other embodies beauty and sensuality. Which path will Rick choose? In the city of angels and the desert that surrounds it, will he find his own way?

The Jungle Book. Trailer. Neel Sethi. Idris Elba. Lupita Nyong’o. Bill Murray. Ben Kingsley. Scarlett Johansson.

Directed by Jon Favreau, based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli [Neel Sethi], a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan [voice of Idris Elba], who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera [voice of Ben Kingsley], and the free-spirited bear Baloo [voice of Bill Murray]. Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa [voice of Scarlett Johannsson], a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie [voice of Christopher Walken], who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire.

Life. Trailer. Dane DeHaan. Robert Pattinson.

LIFE captures the nuances and complexities of the relationship between photographer and subject in a way rarely seen or understood by someone outside the business. In a nod to Corbijn’s own past experience, the film is told from the perspective of the Life photographer Dennis Stock [Pattinson] who meets and profiles Dean [DeHaan] for the magazine, turning out some of Dean’s most iconic photographs.

The Walk is the true story of a young dreamer, Philippe Petit, and a band of unlikely recruits who together achieve the impossible: an illegal wire walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers.
