Brooke Dalton is a young married woman from Boston with enough problems in her life without her trip to New York City going completely wrong. Not only does she manage to miss the last train home at 1:30am, but she also has her purse with all her money stolen at Grand Central Station. However, help arrives in the form of a handsome trumpeter named Nick Vaughan, who happens to be finishing an evening of busking and offers to give her the 80 dollars that he has on him. She initially refuses, wary of the stranger, but soon begins to realise that being alone in a big city for the night is the last thing she wants to happen. The pair begin to connect as the night wears on, but Brooke is terrified as feelings start to develop between them, and she's not so sure if abandoning her marriage for the sake of one whirlwind of a night is worth it.

The Collector is a brutal masked serial killer who enjoys torturing, mutilating and killing his victims through booby-traps after luring them to secret locations to collect them. Despite being the subject of an immense manhunt, he manages another ruthless slaughter by rigging up a set of traps at an underground nightclub. Elena is persuaded by her friends to attend the club, but becomes the only survivor after every other attendee is murdered. She is instead kidnapped and taken to an old hotel, again lined with traps. The only person who knows where she is is Arkin; an ex-con who is still traumatised by his own experiences and narrow escape from the Collector. He is persuaded to help look for her after being approached by Elena's wealthy father and his team of headstrong mercenaries, but will they find her in time to save her? And will they struggle to hold themselves together along the way?
'The Collection' is the grisly sequel to 2009 horror flick 'The Collector'. It has been directed by Marcus Dunstan ('Saw IV', 'Piranha 3DD') who co-wrote the screenplay with his previous writing partner Patrick Melton and it has already been released in cinemas in Fall 2012 in the US.

The highlight of this week’s movie releases is, unarguable. This is the time of year that many major releases come smothered in a blanket of ‘will it / won’t it’ chatter, with regards to Oscar nominations. The run-up to the release of the Brad Pitt-starring Killing Them Softly has been muted, though and it looks as though the Academy might be glossing over this particular mob tale.
Of course, gangster stories, in themselves, are nothing new in Hollywood but Killing Them Softly is showing signs of being one of the better ones. The perfect mix of dark drama and dark humour, Pitt leads a stellar cast, including James Gandolfini, and Ray Liotta (gangster movie essentials, no?) and director Andrew Domink has wooed the critics, thus far, causing Andrew O’Hehir of Salon.com to comment “It has a weird, buzzing, intense quality that has burrowed its way deep into my brain like some invasive sci-fi organism.” It remains to be seen, though, whether the folk over at the Academy decide it’s worthy of a nod.
April 2021 may have been one of the coldest in 60 years, but there were still enough hot releases to warm our hearts and fuel our fires.
