When one of McGregor's relatives suddenly moves in, he is bewildered by the discovery of a family of rabbits in his new home. A battle of wills soon breaks out as the new owner devises different ways to get rid of Peter and his friends. James Corden, (The Late Late Show and Carpool Karaoke), voices the character of Peter with playful spirit and wild charm, with Academy Award® nominee Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley performing the voice roles of the triplets, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton Tail.

Her mission is a treacherous one, but she must push beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown. If she survives this perilous adventure she will earn the title of “Tomb Raider”. From the Warner Bros. Pictures and Metro Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, Tomb Raider stars Academy Award® winner, Alicia Vikander in the lead role, under the direction of Roar Uthaug, with Academy Award® winner Graham King producing. The film also stars Dominic West, Walton Goggins and Academy Award® nominee Kristin Scott Thomas.
Paul Apostle of Christ -
Paul, Apostle of Christ is the story of two men. Luke, as a friend and physician, risks his life when he ventures into the city of Rome to visit Paul, who is held captive in Nero’s darkest, bleakest prison cell. But Nero is determined to rid Rome of Christians and does not flinch from executing them in the grisliest ways possible. Before Paul’s death sentence can be enacted, Luke resolves to write another book, one that details the beginnings of “The Way” and the birth of what will come to be known as the church.
Bound in chains, Paul’s struggle is internal. He has survived so much—floggings, shipwreck, starvation, stoning, hunger and thirst, cold and exposure—yet as he waits for his appointment with death, he is haunted by the shadows of his past misdeeds. Alone in the dark, he wonders if he has been forgotten and if he has the strength to finish well.
Two men struggle against a determined emperor and the frailties of the human spirit to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ and spread their message to the world. The film is directed by; Andrew Hyatt and stars; Jim Caviezel (The Passion of The Christ), James Faulkner (Downton Abbey), Olivier Martinez (S.W.A.T.), Joanne Whalley (A.D. The Bible Continues) and John Lynch (THE SECRET GARDEN).
