the help of the original Joe himself (Willis) the disavowed soldiers stop at
nothing to bring Cobra to justice. June 22nd

There are few films that are as
highly anticipated as this series closer for Christopher Nolan’s Gotham trilogy. Set 8 years after the Dark
Knight, Batman faces off against Bane and Catwoman in the series finale. After
it’s predecessor made over $1 Billion at the box, expectations are high for a
fitting curtain call for the caped crusader. July 20th

of fun. August 2nd

The third film in the series
sees Greg (Zachary Gordon) get ready
for summer vacation. However his plans don’t quite go as expected. Whilst it

fun and well-made addition to a summer filled with big movies. August 3rd

dance moves that keep this series going. Presented once again in 3D, Step Up 4
