THE EXPENDABLES 2

The Expendables are back and this time it's personal, Barney Ross, Lee Christmas, Yin Yang, Gunnar Jensen, Toll Road and Hale Caesar with newest members Billy the Kid and Maggie aboard are reunited when Mr Church enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time, six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that's nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother.

BRINGING UP BOBBY

Sometimes a mother's love is not enough.

In an effort to escape her murky past and build a better future, Olive, a nomadic European con-artist, and her 10-year-old American-born son, Bobby, find themselves living in Oklahoma. As her top priority, Olive seeks to give Bobby the things she never had: she enrolls him in school, makes him do his homework and tries her hardest to be a good mother, and with the help of an old friend from Oklahoma, Walt (Rory Cochrane), Olive "provides" for Bobby in the only way she knows how. But despite of her efforts (or perhaps because of them) Bobby displays troubling behaviour both at his school and in their conservative neighborhood. Things take a turn for the worse after Bobby's unfortunate "run-in" with the local and wealthy businessman Kent, and Olive's criminal past finally catches up with her, forcing her to make the toughest judgment of all.

Directed by: Famke Janssen; Starring: Milla Jovovich, Marcia Cross, Spencer List, Bill Pullman
