The Love Punch

Pierce Brosnan and Emma Thompson team up for the first time as unlikely jewel thieves in this breezy heist comedy. Kate (Emma Thompson) and Richard (Pierce Brosnan) are long divorced. But their plans for a comfortable retirement are jeopardised when the asset-stripping new owner of Richard's investment firm makes off with their nest egg. Then they learn that the dodgy French financier responsible has just bought a $10 million diamond for his bride-to-be. To get even, all they have to do is gatecrash the Cote d'Azur wedding and make off with the rock! To help with this crazy heist, the duo recruit ex-serviceman pal Jerry (Timothy Spall) and his dotty wife Penelope (Celia Imrie). And as they hit the French Riviera, it becomes clear that the spark between Kate and Richard has not been completely extinguished. British writer/director Joel Hopkins reunites with his 'Last Chance Harvey' star Emma Thompson for this delicious screwball comedy.

Russell Crowe stars in a spectacular reimagining of the apocalyptic story of the great flood. When Noah (Russell Crowe) experiences visions of a catastrophic deluge, he seeks advice from his grandfather Methuselah (Anthony Hopkins). Methuselah reveals that the disaster foretold is God's punishment for man's corruption of the world. It is Noah's destiny to construct a vessel to save the lives of the innocent. Together with his wife Naameh (Jennifer Connelly), their sons Shem (Douglas Booth) and Ham (Logan Lerman), and family friend Ila (Emma Watson), he sets about building a giant wooden ark. But the terrible impending flood is not the only challenge Noah faces. A violent tribe of warriors led by his nemesis Tubal-cain (Ray Winstone) want the ark for themselves! 'Black Swan' director Darren Aronofsky serves up an awesome retelling of this great Biblical tale of courage and sacrifice. The astonishing effects include a vast menagerie of CGI animals!
