Außerdem der erste Trailer zum hervorragend aussehenden und äußerst interessant klingenden Mystery/Disaster-SciFi aus Deutschland: Wir sind die Flut.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are special operatives for the government of the human territories charged with maintaining order throughout the universe. Valerian has more in mind than a professional relationship with his partner, blatantly chasing after her with propositions of romance. But his extensive history with women, and her traditional values, drive Laureline to continuously rebuff him.

Under directive from their Commander (Clive Owen), Valerian and Laureline embark on a mission to the breathtaking intergalactic city of Alpha, an ever-expanding metropolis comprised of thousands of different species from all four corners of the universe. Alpha’s seventeen million inhabitants have converged over time- uniting their talents, technology and resources for the betterment of all. Unfortunately, not everyone on Alpha shares in these same objectives; in fact, unseen forces are at work, placing our race in great danger.

Newsbits:

Wir sind die Flut

Vor 15 Jahren ist vor der Küste von Windholm das Meer verschwunden. Seitdem strahlt eine beklemmende Ruhe auf die Umgebung aus, wirft Fragen auf, bereitet Unbehagen. Die Ursache für die Anomalie ist bis heute ungeklärt. Mit einer neuen Theorie ist der ehrgeizige Physikstudent Micha einer von vielen Nachwuchswissenschaftlern, die um die rar gesäten Forschungsaufträge an der Uni kämpfen. Nach jahrelanger Arbeit muss er jedoch erleben, wie sein gewagtes Vorhaben am verknöcherten System scheitert – er darf sein Projekt nicht fortsetzen. Heimlich macht sich Micha mit seiner Kollegin Jana auf den Weg, um seine Hypothese auf eigene Faust zu überprüfen. In dem vom Militär abgesperrten Gebiet treffen die jungen Forscher auf den kläglichen Rest einer rätselhaften Dorfgemeinschaft. Denn an dem Tag, an dem das Meer verschwand, hat es auch die Kinder des Dorfes mitgenommen. Das behaupten die Dorfbewohner. Doch sind die Kinder damals wirklich ertrunken? Ihre Leichen wurden nie gefunden! Zwischen heruntergekommenen Häusern und verlassenen Straßen geraten Micha und Jana auf ihrer Suche nach der Wahrheit immer tiefer in den Bann dieses vergessenen Ortes, an dem ihnen eine Wirklichkeit offenbart wird, der sie sich erst noch stellen müssen.

Beyond The Gates

Two estranged brothers reunite seven months after their father’s disappearance to liquidate his anemic video store. While there, they unearth an old VCR board game that acts as an inter-dimensional hub to a nightmare world where their Father’s soul is trapped and can only be saved by playing the game. The film is an adventure horror that pays loving tribute to the VHS format, video stores, and board games of the era.

Domain

After a deadly virus wipes out most of humanity, the survivors are forced to wait alone in self-sustaining bunkers while the viral threat runs its course. Able to communicate through a networked video interface, the survivors wait for years and slowly become a motley family of sorts. But their fragile social ecosystem is shattered when, one by one, they start mysteriously disappearing from their bunkers.

The Brand New Testament

God exists, and He's a jerk. He lives in a high-rise apartment in Brussels and never gets out of His pajamas. He takes sadistic delight in dreaming up new "laws" to torment humanity and He's a petty tyrant to His wife and ten-year-old daughter, Ea. Like her brother before her, Ea has had enough of her Father's abuse and when she spies the right opportunity, she hacks into His computer and leaks to the entire world - by text message - the only thing He has over them: their inevitable death date. Ea, after escaping and with her Father in pursuit, gathers apostles and writes her own New Testament to try to fix the mess her Father has made of humanity.

Mark Hamill's Pop Culture Quest


Join Mark on his quest to track down the rumored rocket-firing Boba Fett, the original Time Machine, the last surviving armature model used to animate the original 1933 King Kong, the 1992 Batmobile, and so much more! Mark travels inside pop culture’s vaults to uncover why we are so fascinated with collecting and what our collections say about us.

Journey To The West: Demon Chapter

Adaptation of the sprawling Chinese folk tale due for release in January: Tang Monk brings three disciples on a journey to the West. On the outside, everything seems harmonious. However, tension is present beneath the surface, and their hearts and minds are not in agreement. After a series of demon-capturing events, the monk and his disciples gain mutual understanding of each others' hardships and unease. Finally, they resolve their inner conflict and work together to become an all-conquering, demon-exorcising team.

The Noonday Witch

Tells a story of mother Eliška, and her eight years old daughter Anetka. Together, they move into a remote house to begin their new life with the ‘father away on business’, as the mother claims. However, when the daughter discovers the truth and realises her own mother lied to her all along, their relationship begins to wither. At that time, the mythical creature of The Noonday Witch begins to materialise. It is coming closer and closer and the question is poised: is the danger real or is it all in the mother’s crumbling head?
