Transformers Age Of Extinction

The Dinobots make their spectacular entrance as mankind faces total annihilation in the fourth explosive 'Transformers' movie. Years have passed since the devastating battle of Chicago and humans have turned against the Transformers. Then widowed inventor Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg) uncovers a beat-up old truck that turns out to be none other than Optimus Prime. Arrogant government agent Harold Attinger (Kelsey Grammer) promptly arrives with a large military force demanding to know the whereabouts of the reactivated Autobot. Meanwhile, scientist Joshua (Stanley Tucci) isolates the unstable metal from which the Transformers are made. Little does humanity anticipate that this will attract a terrifying new menace! Michael Bay's fourth jaw-dropping Transformers movie not only amps up the explosive action but also gives Optimus Prime a stunning, sword-wielding makeover. The big news for Transformers fans, however, is the introduction of the astonishing Dinobots. They're led by Grimlock, who transforms into an extraordinary mechanical Tyrannosaurus rex!

Begin Again

A jaded music biz executive bonds with a singer in this poignant romantic comedy from the director of 'Once'. Aging, out of touch music industry veteran Dan (Mark Ruffalo) has just been fired and is drowning his sorrows. Meanwhile, shy British expat singer/songwriter Greta (Keira Knightley) is cajoled by her busker pal Steve (James Corden) into performing at an open mic session in the same New York bar. Despite being drunk, Dan recognises a great talent when he hears one and hatches a novel plan to record an album. Matters are complicated by the fact that Greta's fellow musician ex-boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) has become a big rock star. This is another witty, moving and romantic hymn to the healing power of music from John Carney, writer/director of the much-loved, multiple award-winning 'Once'. Keira Knightley reveals her lovely singing voice, while Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine makes his feature film acting debut.
