In MONOS, Colombian-Ecuadorian filmmaker Alejandro Landes directs a primal, enigmatic survivalist thriller that blends Lord of the Flies and APOCALYPSE NOW. A cast of newcomers and assured professionals combine to tell a story about child soldiers – the likes of which has never been seen onscreen. The chemistry between them, and between them the vast wilderness, drives a story as universal as it is unique.
Featuring a dreamlike musical score by Academy Award nominee Mica Levi (UNDER THE SKIN, JACKIE), and lush, searing imagery that evokes Stanley Kubrick and Terence Malick, MONOS is a visual and aural feast – and a powerfully cinematic descent into the places where civilization crumbles. Winner of Sundance Film Festival’s World Cinema Dramatic Special Jury Award, MONOS is a surreal journey into the heart of darkness.
The next time you sit down to a game night with your in-laws and think, “Ugh, just kill me,” be careful what you wish for.
When Grace (Samara Weaving, THE BABYSITTER) marries Alex (Mark O’Brien, BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE), she takes comfort in knowing they won’t spend much time with his wealthy, mean-spirited family of board game tycoons. But when the whole family settles in to play a game on her wedding night, she learns just how twisted this family really is.
You’ll laugh and gasp in equal measure as bold, badass Grace takes on a bunch of spoiled rich kids in an ornate mansion straight out of CLUE in the deadliest game of hide and seek ever. With black humor and gruesome violence (and a killer supporting cast, including Andie MacDowell and Adam Brody), READY OR NOT takes family game night to vicious new territory.
The last female beehunter in Europe must save the bees and return the natural balance in Honeyland, when a family of nomadic beekeepers invade her land and threaten her livelihood.

The master storytellers at Disney breathe new life into one of their most beloved tales with this modern, visually dazzling spin on THE LION KING.

Dark, disturbing, and laugh-out-loud funny, director Riley Stern’s SXSW breakout has all the makings of an instant cult classic. With a perfect balance of off-kilter comedy and twisty thriller, THE ART OF SELF DEFENSE is what would happen if Charlie Kaufman wrote FIGHT CLUB. Or if Yorgos Lanthimos directed KARATE KID. Plus, dachshunds.
Jesse Eisenberg (THE SOCIAL NETWORK) is perfectly cast as Casey Evans, a timid bookkeeper who joins a strip mall dojo after getting attacked on the street by a roving motorcycle gang. With guidance from his alpha-sensei (Alessandro Nivola, YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE) and hardcore brown belt Anna (Imogen Poots, GREEN ROOM), Casey enters an absurdly hyper-masculine world full of mind games, dark secrets, and heavy metal.
A biting satire on toxic masculinity, THE ART OF SELF DEFENSE takes a thoughtful look at traditional values of manhood – violence, emotional reticence, not petting your dog – and then proceeds to roundhouse kick them squarely in the face.
