Maleficient 2

Let’s start with the sequel that offers a look at our Sleeping Beauty villain. Stories aren’t black and white. There’s something that turns people into the big villains of a story. And in the majority of cases, they’re the heroes of their own stories; the heroes of our stories being the villains.

Angelina Jolie returns as Maleficient in Maleficient: Mistress of Evil. Elle Fanning returns as Aurora, who is grown up and has found her love. Maleficient is worried about her goddaughter’s fate and falls back into old patterns to “protect” her.

Code 8

Ready for a superhero movie with a twist. In fact, the heroes aren’t really the heroes in this. Cousins Robbie Amell and Stephen Amell team up in Code 8, set in a world where those with powers are kept in poverty. Naturally, that leads to dissent, and soon a group of people with powers decides its time to do something about their lives.

The group gets involved in a dangerous journey of a life of crime. However, is Connor Reed willing to risk everything just to help pay for his sick mother’s medical issues?
