Based on the New York Times bestseller, WONDER tells the inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman.  Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade.  As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to find their compassion and acceptance, Auggie’s extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.

Gabrielle (Marion Cotillard) comes from a small village in the south of France, at a time when her dream of true love is considered scandalous, and even insane. Against her will, Gabrielle’s parents marry her to José (Alex Brendemühl), an honest and loving Spanish farmer who they think will make a respectable woman of her. When she is sent away to the Alps to treat her kidney stones, André (Louis Garrel), a dashing injured veteran of the Indochina war, rekindles the passion buried inside of her. With this newfound love, Gabrielle yearns to run away with André, freeing herself from a marriage which seems to imprison her. This time, she’s determined to follow her dream.

Netflix has released a teaser trailer for the highly anticipated series Ozark. Jason Bateman, who serves as an executive producer and director, stars as Marty Byrde, alongside Academy Award ® nominee Laura Linney as his wife Wendy.  The Byrdes and their teenage kids, Charlotte and Jonah, are, for all intents and purposes, an ordinary family with ordinary lives. Except for the job of Marty, a Chicago financial advisor who also serves as the top money launderer for the second largest drug cartel in Mexico. When things go awry, Marty must uproot his family from the skyscrapers of Chicago and relocate to the lazy lake region of the Missouri Ozarks.  This dark drama, which also stars Esai Morales, Julia Garner, Marc Menchaca, Jason Butler Harner and Harris Yulin, explores capitalism, family dynamics and survival through the eyes of (anything but) ordinary Americans.

Following a long tradition of cocky teenage boys with too much time on their hands, Brady, Sam and Mosley like to amuse themselves by making prank calls. However, their cellular diversions are intensified by the extreme nature of the pranks they put their unsuspecting victims through, and the delight and encouragement they receive when they post videos of their hijinks online for maximum humiliation. Having pushed the wrong person too far, they find themselves on the other side of a call,and an evening intended for normal high school revelry turns increasingly bloody as their unknown assailant ramps up a prank of his own.

What happens when technology keeps you one step removed from the reality of what you do for a living?  That’s the dilemma one man must answer as explosive thriller DRONE lands on DVD and digital platforms from July 3rd courtesy of Signature Entertainment.  Drone pilot and family man Neil (Sean Bean; TV’s Game Of Thrones, The Martian) has spent his career conducting deadly, covert missions overseas from the comfort of his suburban hometown. When an enigmatic, Pakistani businessman (Patrick Sabongui; TV’s Homeland, Arrow) manages to track Neil down at his home seeking revenge, Neil must confront the consequences of his actions.  Also starring Mary McCormack (TV’s The West Wing, The Newsroom) and Joel David Moore (Avatar, The Guest), DRONE is a supremely timely and electrifyingly taut thriller that examines the consequences of making decisions from afar. Featuring Sean Bean at his stoic best, make sure DRONE doesn’t fly under your radar this summer.
