They're joined by members of both the Broadway and North American Tour ensembles, filling the stage with more "newsies" and more dancing than ever before.

    Set in New York City at the turn of the century and based on a true story, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged "newsies," who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike and take a stand for what's right.

    A brilliant but arrogant neurosurgeon named Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) has a horrific car accident when he pays attention to texting on his cell rather than concentrate on the winding road. His car goes over the side and crashes. Although his life is saved, when he wakes up in the hospital, he finds he has serious nerve damage to his hands and can no longer work as a doctor.

    When Strange is given a tip from someone who survived a similar accident, he goes on a quest for a miracle cure and finds a mystical and mysterious sorcerer called the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton). She teaches him to put his massive ego aside and instead, give himself over to the mystical arts in order to defend the world against evil.

    Starring: Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelsen, Tilda Swinton, Michael Stuhlbarg, Benjamin Bratt, Scott Adkins, Benedict Wong

  • A young man named Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) is preparing to meet his girlfriend Rose's (Allison Williams) parents for the first time. However, he is skeptical of the introduction because Rose, who's white, hasn't told her parents that he is black. While she sees no importance in the color of his skin, he knows it's going to be an issue.

    As they make their way to Rose's family estate, he is immediately subjected to racial profiling by a cop; but he just chocks it up to typical white suburban behavior. When they arrive at the vast estate, Rose's parents (Catherine Keener and Bradley Whitford) do not hide their discomfort at their daughter's choice of suitor. And as the awkward visit drags on, Chris begins to notice that all the African Americans in the town are acting strangely — almost as if they're hypnotized — and soon uncovers a twisted plot that may leave him at the mercy of the townsfolk.

    Starring: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Bradley Whitford, Caleb Landry Jones, Catherine Keener

  • In this documentary, director Raoul Peck takes a look at Remember This House, the book James Baldwin never finished. He crafts a radical narration about race in America, using Baldwin's original words. He draws upon the author’s notes about the lives and assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr. to explore and bring a fresh perspective to the current racial fabric in America.

    He analyzes the country's obsession with skin color and examines what it means to be Black in the U.S.A. by mixing rich archival footage of the Civil Rights and Black Power movements with recent recordings of young African-American men who’ve been killed, including Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice and Mike Brown.

  • For filmmaker Rob Stewart, exploring sharks began as an underwater adventure. What it turned into was a beautiful and dangerous life journey into the balance of life on earth.

    Driven by passion fed from a lifelong fascination with sharks, Stewart debunks historical stereotypes and media depictions of sharks as bloodthirsty, man-eating monsters and reveals the reality of sharks as pillars in the evolution of the seas.

    Filmed in visually stunning, high definition video, Sharkwater takes you into the most shark rich waters of the world, exposing the exploitation and corruption surrounding the world's shark populations in the marine reserves of Cocos Island, Costa Rica and the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador.

    In an effort to protect sharks, Stewart teams up with renegade conservationist Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Their unbelievable adventure together starts with a battle between the Sea Shepherd and shark poachers in Guatemala, resulting in pirate boat rammings, gunboat chases, mafia espionage, corrupt court systems and attempted murder charges, forcing them to flee for their lives.

    Through it all, Stewart discovers these magnificent creatures have gone from predator to prey, and how despite surviving the earth's history of mass extinctions, they could easily be wiped out within a few years due to human greed.

    Stewart's remarkable journey of courage and determination changes from a mission to save the world's sharks, into a fight for his life, and that of humankind.
