When a pioneering inventor and scientist named Gordon Dunn (Martin Donovan) is assassinated in his office, a detective friend of his named Sam Bloom (Peter Dinklage) sets out to uncover the truth behind his murder. Gordon's biggest legacy is an invention that allows a person to record and play back memories on a screen just by thinking about it, and it's a tool that remains Sam's best hope at solving this brutal case. He sets out to track down everyone who might have had contact with Gordon before his death; from his wife and mistress to his business associates. Before long the whole story starts to unwind, leaving a trail of lies, betrayal and a horrifying truth that Sam was likely never expecting.

Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister in the HBO series, says many people abandon the Siberian huskies once they realise how much attention they need.
Sales of Siberian husky puppies have rocketed enormously off the enduring popularity of ‘Game of Thrones’, to the point that one of its stars, Peter Dinklage, has urged fans to think twice before adopting or buying the puppies simply because they resemble the ‘direwolves’ from the fantasy series.
48 year old Dinklage – who plays Tyrion Lannister in the HBO series – banded together with animal rights organisation PETA to address a trend of the huskies being bought as puppies because of their similarity to direwolves, only to abandon the dogs once the novelty wears off.
“Not only does this hurt all the deserving homeless dogs waiting for a chance at a good home in shelters, but shelters are also reporting that many of these huskies are being abandoned — as often happens when dogs are bought on impulse, without understanding their needs,” the actor said in a statement released on Wednesday (August 16th) by PETA.
There's nothing particularly memorable about this frantic animated romp, which adapts the iconic phone-app game into a movie using a rather corny plot. But the film is so random that it can't help but get the audience laughing. Youngsters will be delighted by the brightly coloured wackiness, while adults will chuckle at the steady stream of grown-up visual and verbal gags, many of which are frankly surprising to find in a children's movie.
It's set on the isolated Bird Island, where the residents have never learned how to fly and believe they are the only life in the sea. In their tight-knit community, Red (voiced by Jason Sudeikis) is an outcast because of his too-independent thinking. He's ordered to take anger management classes with groovy guru Matilda (Maya Rudolph), where his fellow students are the hyperactive Chuck (Josh Gad), the hulking Terence (Sean Penn) and the explosive Bomb (Danny McBride). Then a pig named Leonard (Bill Hader) arrives on the island, introducing new technology like sling shots and trampolines and planning a big party. But of course he has a much more nefarious intention that only Red can see. In need of help, Red takes Chuck and Bomb in search of the mythical Mighty Eagle (Peter Dinklage), the only bird on the island who can fly.
There's a slightly nagging sense that Donald Trump wrote this script (it's about a guy who's ignored as he obnoxiously shouts about the dangers of letting strangers into the community, then is proved right). But the film is so utterly ridiculous that it's impossible to take this rather dodgy theme seriously. What's even more odd is how much of the humour is aimed at grown-ups, including innuendo, puns, gross-out gags and unexpected violence, most of which will go over young viewers' heads. But it's so unfocussed that the only response is to laugh in disbelief that someone thought a joke so near-the-knuckle was appropriate for a kids' movie.

Angry Birds Movie is a screen adaptation from the popular game in which we follow the journey of its main protagonist Red's (voiced by Jason Sudeikis) life from him being bullied at school to his feelings of exclusion in later life. The film is set on an island that is populated with flightless birds whom are mostly happy with their life on the island except Red who suffers with keeping his temper under control.
Continue: Angry Birds Trailer
Red lives on a sun-kissed tropical island full of plenty of other vibrant flightless birds. And while all of his friends and neighbours seem to be enjoying life, he is having a far less enjoyable time. He's just extremely quick to anger, very slow to forgive and struggles to be friendly to just about anyone. Thus, he is forced to undergo anger management therapy to control his emotions before his hostility really gets out of hand. On attending his first group session, he meets the fast-talking faster-moving Chuck and the shy but quick to explode Bomb and together they attempt to conquer their stress. But upon the arrival of some suspicious looking pigs led by Leonard, Red and his new friends are the only ones who seem to be suspicious of their unlikely visitors.
