Director: Guy Ritchie
The Buzz: Guy Ritchie gave Sherlock Holmes a successful makeover, and now he's out to do the same for the swords and sandals genre. Anything it takes to mint Charlie Hunnam as a bona fide movie star is fine by us. Plus, we're hoping Jude Law taps into his "Young Pope" outrageousness to become villain of the year.

99 min   -   Drama
A young street artist in East Los Angeles is caught between his father's obsession with lowrider car culture, his ex-felon brother and his need for self-expression.

81 min   -   Drama | Thriller | War
Two American Soldiers are trapped by a lethal sniper, with only an unsteady wall between them.
Director: Doug Liman
The Buzz: Director Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Edge of Tomorrow) returns with this war film, the first ever original spec script bought by Amazon Studios. It first appeared on the 2014 Black List of hot un-produced screenplays. Impressively, Liman shot the picture in six weeks.

59 Metascore
Anne is at a crossroads in her life. Long married to a successful, driven but inattentive movie producer, she unexpectedly finds herself taking a car trip from Cannes to Paris with a business associate of her husband.
