Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound, their near-implosion as Mercury’s lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. In the process, cementing the legacy of a band that were always more like a family, and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.

I Still See You

Sixteen-year old Ronnie Calder (Bella Thorne) enjoys breakfast every morning with her dad — well, actually just a spectral remnant, or “rem” of her father, who was killed a decade earlier along with millions of other Midwesterners when a top-secret lab experiment went cataclysmically wrong. When an unfamiliar rem begins stalking her — and affecting the physical world in ways rems are supposedly incapable of — Ronnie seeks advice from a trusted teacher, Mr. Bittner (Dermot Mulroney). Not satisfied with his explanation, she teams up with classmate Kirk (Richard Harman), a loner with a mysterious past, to figure out what the rem wants from her. In search of answers, they journey to the site of the lab accident in Chicago, where they witness rems reenacting a horrific murder. Armed with fresh insights, Ronnie returns to her wintry suburban home to confront the tormented killer determined to destroy her.
