Last week was quite quiet in Scifi-fantasy movie releases, this week, it’s Repo Men and IMAX and IMAX3D have the release of Hubble, narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio
Repo Men (Nationwide)
Director: Miguel Sapochnik
Rating: R (for strong bloody violence, grisly images, language and some sexuality/nudity)
(From comingsoon.net) In the futuristic action-thriller “Repo Men,” humans have extended and improved our lives through highly sophisticated and expensive mechanical organs created by a company called The Union. The dark side of these medical breakthroughs is that if you don’t pay your bill, The Union sends its highly skilled repo men to take back its property… with no concern for your comfort or survival.
Jude Law plays Remy, one of the best organ repo men in the business. But when he suffers a cardiac failure on the job, he awakens to find himself fitted with the company’s top-of-the-line heart-replacement… as well as a hefty debt. But a side effect of the procedure is that his heart’s no longer in the job. When he can’t make the payments, The Union sends its toughest enforcer, Remy’s former partner Jake (Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker), to track him down.
Now that the hunter has become the hunted, Remy joins Beth (Alice Braga), another debtor who teaches him how to vanish from the system. And as he and Jake embark on a chase across a landscape populated by maniacal friends and foes, one man will become a reluctant champion for thousands on the run.
The film is based on the novel “The Repossession Mambo” by Eric Garcia.
Hubble 3D (IMAX, 3D IMAX)
(from ComingSoon.net) Through the power of IMAX® 3D, “Hubble 3D” will enable moviegoers to journey through distant galaxies to explore the grandeur and mysteries of our celestial surroundings, and accompany space-walking astronauts as they attempt the most difficult and important tasks in NASA’s history. The seventh film from the award-winning IMAX® Space Team, “Hubble 3D” will offer an inspiring and unique look into the Hubble Space Telescope’s legacy and highlight its profound impact on the way we view the universe and ourselves.
