Aus dem Nichts (In the Fade) (O.m.engl.U) (Aus dem Nichts)
D/F, 2017 | Length: 106min | FSK: 16 | Director: Fatih Akin Cast: Diane Kruger, Denis Moschitto, Numan Acar

The winner of the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Film, this stunningly executed thriller about a woman seeking justice is an exploration of terror, mourning and revenge that is all-too timely and relevant. Out of nowhere, Katja's (Kruger; "Inglourious Basterds") life falls apart when her husband and young son are killed in a Neo-Nazi bomb attack. Through the efficient storytelling and the skillful editing, the provocative drama transforms seamlessly from gut-wrenching tragedy to a lean, propulsive revenge thriller made riveting by a powerhouse, Cannes-award-winning performance by Kruger as a grieving and vengeful widow.

In Fatih Akins ("Gegen die Wand", "Tschick") preisgekröntem, fesselndem Thriller verliert Katja (Kruger) bei einem Bombenattentat ihre Familie und wendet sich daraufhin auf eigene Faust gegen die mutmaßlichen Täter: gegen ein Neonazi-Paar. Zurecht ausgezeichnet mit dem Golden Globe als Bester Ausländischer Film ist dieser außergewöhnliche Film zugleich Lovestory, Drama, Gerichts- und Rachethriller, der mit einer schauspielerischen Intensität brilliert, die von Anfang bis Ende fesselt.

Darkest Hour in ATMOS (Die dunkelste Stunde)
USA, 2017 | Length: 126min | FSK: 6 | Director: Joe Wright Cast: Gary Oldman, John Hurt, Lily James

During the early days of World War II, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Oldman). While maneuvering his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright ("Atonement", "Pride & Prejudice"), this biopic is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill's courage to lead changed the course of world history. A persuasive, absorbing and arresting window into history, with an award-worthy, even supernatural performance by Gary Oldman.

Downsizing
USA, 2017 | Length: 135min | Director: Alexander Payne Cast: Matt Damon, Kristen Wiig, Neil Patrick Harris

From the Oscar-winning director of "Sideways", "The Descendants" and "Election" comes a razor-sharp sci-fi satire on lifestyle envy and the emptiness of consumerism. Rife with witty visual touches and inspired comic premises, this ambitious and well-acted film imagines what might happen if, as a solution to over-population, scientists discover how to shrink humans to five inches tall and propose a 200-year global transition from big to small. People soon realize how much further money goes in a miniaturized world, and with the promise of a better life, everyman Paul Safranek (Damon) and wife Audrey (Wiig) decide to abandon their stressed lives in Omaha in order to get small and move to a new downsized community - a choice that triggers life-changing adventures. Captivating, funny and possessed of a surprise-filled zig-zag structure, this is a singular comedy not to be missed.

Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson return as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the third and last chapter based on the worldwide bestselling "Fifty Shades" phenomenon, expanding upon events set in motion in the 2015 and 2017's blockbuster films which tell the steamy tale of a masochistic relationship between a college student and a businessman, whose desires for extreme intimacy pen from secrets in his past.

The Disaster Artist
USA, 2017 | Length: 103min | FSK: 12
Watch Trailer

Based on Greg Sestero's best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy Wiseau's cult-classic disaster piece "The Room" ("The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made"), this film is an enormously entertaining look at film making dreams and the legacy that comes with making a truly terrible one. The hilarious biopic follows the disastrous filmmaker's way to Hollywood, his friendship with aspiring actor Greg Sestero, and their odd film's troubled development and eventual cult success. Funny, creepy, and utterly singular, this is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend - and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you're doing.

The Greatest Showman (in ATMOS) (The Greatest Showman)
USA, 2017 | Length: 106min | FSK: 6 | Director: Michael Gracey Cast: Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Zendaya

Inspired by the story of how hoax merchant P. T. Barnum started the Barnum & Bailey Circus and the lives of its attractions, this surprisingly inspirational biopic is an original musical that celebrates the birth of show business & tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation. Set in the 1800s, the hugely enjoyable film follows the absurdly charismatic Hugh Jackman ("Wolverine", "Les Miserables") as P.T. Barnum as he loses his job and finds himself at a crossroads. Trying to provide for his family in a way that he feels is right leads him to the idea of starting a circus. Featuring songs from "La La Land"'s Oscar-winning lyricists that mix musical theater and today's pop, this all-original rag-to-riches story is a fun and exciting cinematic circus.

Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri
USA, 2017 | Length: 115min | FSK: 12 | Director: Martin McDonagh Cast: Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage

From the director of "In Bruges" and "Seven Psychopaths" comes a darkly comic drama that tells a stirring story of grief and redemption. After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter's murder case, Mildred Hayes (McDormand; "Fargo", "Burn After Reading") makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at the town's revered chief of police (Harrelson; "No Country for Old Men", "Zombieland"). When his second-in-command (Rockwell), an immature mother's boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing's law enforcement is only exacerbated. McDormand gives an Oscar type of uncompromising performance in a film that is Fargo good: immensely entertaining, engaging, savagely brutal, and stingingly written with social relevancy.

Wonder (Wunder)
USA, 2017 | Length: 113min | Director: Steve Chbosky Cast: Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, Jacob Tremblay

Based on the New York Times bestseller, this powerfully moving drama tells the story of 10-year-old August 'Auggie' 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 discover 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. Superbly written and brilliantly acted, especially by a terrific Jacob Tremblay ("Room"), this is a heartfelt, irresistibly warm family picture bursting to the seams with Important Life Lessons, while at the same time being smart, effective and surprisingly funny.
