FILM: ELYSIUM
CAST: MATT DAMON. JODIE FOSTER, SHARLTO COPLEY, ALICE BRAGA, DIEGO LUNA
DIRECTOR: NEILL BLOMKAMP

In the year 2154, two classes of people exist: the very wealthy, who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined planet. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the crime and poverty that is now rampant throughout the land.
The only man with the chance to bring equality to these worlds is Max (Matt Damon), an ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission – one that pits him against Elysium’s Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) and her hard-line forces – but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.
South African born director Neill Blomkamp, responsible for the cult sci-fi classic ‘District 9’, has said that the film’s subject matter deals essentially about the third world trying to get into the first.

Director: THOR FREUDENTHAL

A-scene-from-'Percy-JacksonPercy Jackson isn’t feeling very heroic. The half-human son of Poseidon – the Greek god of the sea – once saved the world, but Percy’s starting to think that might have been a fluke. Is he a flash in the pan…a one-quest wonder?
When Percy learns he has a half-brother who’s a monster, he wonders if being the son of Poseidon might be more of a curse than a blessing. But Percy doesn’t have much time to brood; the magical borders of Camp Half-Blood are beginning to fall and a horde of mythical monsters threatens to destroy the sanctuary for the children of the gods.

In order to save the demigods’ haven, Percy and his friends must find the fabled and magical Golden Fleece. Their journey takes them to Washington, D.C. and on to the Florida coast, where they set sail on a treacherous odyssey into the uncharted, deadly waters of the Sea of Monsters, known to humans as the Bermuda Triangle.
They are challenged by a giant mechanical fire-breathing bull, terrifying sea creatures, a gigantic Cyclops, and other demigods of uncertain allegiances. The stakes are higher than ever and if Percy doesn’t succeed, Camp Half-Blood will cease to exist and all of Olympus will crumble.
