The Giver
Based on Lois Lowry’s beloved young adult novel of the same name, the haunting story of THE GIVER centers on Jonas (Brenton Thwaites), who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community. Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep also star. The Giver opens on August 15.

Sharknado 2: The Second One
The highly anticipated follow up to Sharknado, Sharknado 2: The Second One, a freak weather system turns its deadly fury on New York City, unleashing a Sharknado on the population and its most cherished iconic sites. Only Fin (Ian Ziering) and April (Tara Reid) can save the Big Apple. And, by the way, the Sharknado that hits NYC makes the one that hit Los Angeles seem positively tame. The film is directed by Anthony C. Ferrante from a screenplay by Thunder Levin (both of whom worked on the first).

The Best Of Me
When a mutual friend dies, a rich girl Amanda (Michelle Monaghan) and wrong-side-of-the-tracks boy Dawson (James Marsden) are reunited after twenty years, and discover that they have feelings for each other. However this being a film based on a Nicholas Sparks, there will be plot devices that will force a wedge between the two. The Best of Me hits theaters October 17.

The November Man
An ex-CIA operative is brought back in on a very personal mission and finds himself pitted against his former pupil in a deadly game involving high level CIA officials and the Russian president-elect. Pierce Brosnan and Olga Kurylenko star in this Roger Donaldson-directed thriller. The November Man opens August 27
