Joy (Colman) and Mully (Reid) are two lovable rogues. Joy is angry – she’s got a baby and motherhood does not come naturally to her; she feels she’s tossed her own dreams aside to give a screeching monster unconditional love. And, if she’s honest to herself, when she looks in the mirror she sees the shadow of her own neglectful mother. Twelve-year-old Mully also has a mum-shaped void in his life, as well as a conman dad. But Mully’s got balls; he nicks his dad’s stash of cash and steals a taxi in a bid for freedom. But, there’s an almighty yell from the back seat. It’s Joy – hungover, freaking out, and holding a baby! As they tear up the road on their riotous misadventure, we follow these roguish ‘outlaws’ in search of their dreams, in this feel-good, foul-mouthed fairy-tale.

Krypto the Superdog has his daily routine down. Bounce on Superman’s bed at daybreak. Assist his master in nine-to-five heroics. Try not to cock his leg while airborne. It’s a superdog’s life – and Krypto wouldn’t have it any other way. But Krypto’s role as pampered pooch is shattered when supervillain Lex Luthor captures Superman and the rest of the Justice League. To save his master, the dog of steel must step up to the plate (and we don’t mean to eat a pile of sausages). To pull off this perilous rescue mission, Krypto will need to assemble a crew of his own. Trouble is, most of the animals in Metropolis are mouth-breathing, stick-fetching, toilet-lapping norms. But when the residents of a pet rescue shelter – Ace the hound, PB the potbellied pig, Merton the turtle, and Chip the squirrel – are given superpowers by a mysterious orb, Krypto must convince them to master their newfound powers work together to resuce the Super Heroes.

Fire of Love tells a story of primordial creation and destruction, following two bold explorers as they venture into the unknown, all for the sake of love. Katia and Maurice Krafft loved two things — each other and volcanoes. For two decades, the daring French volcanologist couple roamed the planet, chasing eruptions and documenting their discoveries. Ultimately, they left a legacy that forever enriched our knowledge of the natural world. The Kraffts got as close as possible to the danger and spectacle of these seismic tectonic eruptions from the depths of the earth. They stood right next to gleaming rivers of lava, to massive showers of hot rocks, and recorded it all, leaving a filmed and photographic record of volcanic activity that remains unparalleled. Director Sara Dosa and the filmmaking team fashion a lyrical celebration of the intrepid scientists’ spirit of adventure, drawing from the Kraffts’ spectacular archive. Featuring previously unseen hours of pristine 16-millimeter film and thousands of photographs, the birth of modern volcanology is revealed through an unlikely lens – the love of its two pioneers.
