Frank 'Ponch' Poncherello is the alter-ego of a barely capable undercover FBI agent who has been put on a new case to uncover the identity of the crooked cop within the California Highway Patrol. He teams alongside the CHiP's newest recruit Jon Baker but, unfortunately, as motorcycle cops it's not quite 'ride or die' for these guys, more like 'ride and die' the rate that they're going. Jon has had numerous accidents on the bike, while Ponch is frequently distracted by both women and other men's masculinity, so neither of them are best equipped for the job at hand. This becomes even more apparent when they are faced with a villainous former police officer named Vic Brown and his band of miscreant hitmen, and they start to wonder if perhaps they've bitten off more than they can chew.

Dr. Bennet Omalu is a pathologist who loves his job and, in many ways, the patients that he looks after. His methods are his own but they work for him and he's very successful at his job. When ex-American Football star Mike Webster turns up on his morticians table, Omalu treats his body just like he would any other. What isn't initially known to Omalu is that after years of playing professional football Webster had become something of a recluse whilst suffering with Dementia and depression.
Bennet's initial findings with the late Mr Webber is that he died of cardiac arrest, but unhappy with this conclusion, the pathologist begins to dig deeper. Looking at every possible outcome, Bennet beings to study the brain of the ex-footballer and what he discovers is a new disease that hasn't been seen before.
Before this point, people knew about a condition called Punch Drunk, a disorder often associated with contact sport such as boxing, but up until Dr. Bennet Omalu's discovery the disorder hadn't been seen as a physical effect.

US intelligence services have been following the exploits of a Mexican drug Cartel lieutenant for a long time. They also happen to have uncovered a woman who is willing to testify against him (Sofía Vergara). A Texas police officer (Reese Witherspoon) is sent to collect the woman and bring her in. This is where problems begin to arise, however, as the Cartels are notorious for their violence and brutality, leading to the two women being forced to make their way back to the police station with trained killers at their backs.

For a blockbuster about gigantic radioactive monsters, this is a remarkably humane movie. But then that's no surprise for a film from Gareth Edwards, whose micro-budget Monsters (2010) showed that effects-based movies don't need to sacrifice characterisation and real emotion. So while this film is still a big action romp, it's also cleverly grounded by believable people.
It centres on Ford (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), whose life was upended in 1999 by a nuclear accident in Japan that killed his scientist mother (Juliette Binoche) and turned his father into a conspiracy-theory nutcase. Now just as Ford returns from military service to his wife (Elizabeth Olsen) and young son, he's called back to Japan as his dad spots tremors similar to those 15 years earlier. And as three terrifying creatures rise out of the earth, Ford is drafted in to help protect humanity. Following the beasts via Hawaii and Las Vegas to an epic confrontation in his hometown San Francisco, Ford works with scientists (Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins) and military commanders (David Strathairn and Richard T. Jones), eventually realising that the big-daddy monster Godzilla might actually be trying to help.
One of the more interesting aspects of Max Borenstein's script is that it reveals fairly early on that humanity is responsible for all of this and also helpless to avert the coming cataclysm. And yet the military machine does what it can, firing pathetic bullets and mobilising nuclear warheads because that's all it knows how to do. This approach adds a moral complexity that plays out in the decisions the characters have to make along the way. Taylor-Johnson is fine as the bland but muscled everyman at the centre, but Cranston steals the film with a far more textured role. Watanabe proves to be a master at the distant stare, while everyone else just runs and/or yells like real people would.

Joe Brody and his wife Sandra are working at a nuclear power plant when disaster strikes. The building collapses, forcing an immediate evacuation of employees due to a radiation leak - but when Sandra doesn't make it out, Joe decides to find out what caused the tragedy. When the government inform the media of a severe natural disaster, he is angered because he knows they are harbouring a dangerous secret. When a series of other calamities, such as a devastating tidal wave, hits New York City, it becomes almost impossible to hide the fact that there's a giant reptilian creature hellbent on destruction heading towards the city; a monster later dubbed Godzilla. The US military set out on a mission to save the world along with a surge of new recruits, but their chances of surviving at the hands of this merciless beast are looking horrifically minimal.

Following a series of disastrous calamities in New York, the government are desperately trying to cover up the cause by insisting that major earthquakes and typhoons are to blame for the demolished city. However, it soon becomes clear to everyone that the damage was caused by a less than natural threat, as a colossal reptilian beast makes itself known to the world; a creature the media has dubbed 'Godzilla'. The US military set out to face the threat in the most dangerous mission of their lives as the origins of Godzilla become known. It is mankind's own destructive nature that has brought this menace to Earth, a fact that is concluded when evidence of Nuclear material is found amongst the wildlife of the Pacific. Can mankind save themselves and rectify their own mistakes? Or are they about to make things a helluva lot worse?
'Godzilla' is the epic re-boot of one of the most iconic sci-fi films ever released. Originally a 1954 Japanese film directed by Ishiro Honda, 'Godzilla' was later adapted into a 1998 motion picture by Roland Emmerich. The 2014 incarnation has been directed by Gareth Edwards ('Monsters', 'End Day') with a screenplay by Max Borenstein ('Seventh Son', 'Swordswallowers and Thin Men') and Dave Callaham ('The Expendables', 'Doom'). The film will hit theaters on May 16th 2014.
While the government go about trying to pass off a series of catastrophic events as natural disasters, the US military are forced to take to Manhattan to rescue New York's ravaged city from a gargantuan menace intent on destroying the world. It is soon discovered that mankind's own irresponsible desire for weaponry and destruction has brought the threat upon them, after evidence of Nuclear chemicals are found around the Pacific. It becomes clear that these radioactive materials have had a genetic impact on the local wildlife, so when an enormous, malformed, reptilian monster dubbed Godzilla takes to the city, armed forces scarcely have a chance at defending their people. Does the human race have the strength and intelligence to survive their biggest threat yet? Or will their past mistakes bring about the apocalypse?
The brand new re-boot of the world's most iconic monster film 'Godzilla' serves as the second Hollywood version since it was first adapted by Roland Emmerich in 1998 from the 1954 Japanese film directed by Ishiro Honda. 'Godzilla' 2014 has been directed by Gareth Edwards ('Monsters', 'End Day') and written by Max Borenstein ('Seventh Son', 'Swordswallowers and Thin Men') and Dave Callaham ('The Expendables', 'Doom'), with an expected release date of May 16th 2014.
US troops are sent in to Manhattan via HALO jumping to save the ravaged city from a monstrous threat that appears to have been caused by mankind's own reckless nature lust for destruction. Nuclear chemicals have caused significant radioactive damage to the genetics of some animals and wildlife, and New York finds itself under attack from an enormous, malformed, reptilian beast that the media subsequently dubs as Godzilla. The creature seems almost unstoppable as it easily wipes out the helplessly floundering human beings around it who never thought their scientific research could backfire so apocalyptically. Can it be stopped by human endeavour? And, more importantly, will it be a lesson learned for modern day human beings?
The world's most iconic and recognisable monster returns in 'Godzilla', the second Hollywood incarnation of the creature after Roland Emmerich's 1998 film and based on the 1954 Japanese film of the same name directed by Ishiro Honda. This time, it has been directed by Primetime Emmy nominated Gareth Edwards ('Monsters', 'End Day') and written by Max Borenstein ('Seventh Son', 'Swordswallowers and Thin Men') and Dave Callaham ('The Expendables', 'Doom'). The 'Godzilla' re-boot is set to come crashing into UK cinemas on May 16th 2014.
