Action and Thriller feature films continue to dominate the Global Box Office. In fact, THE HITMAN'S WIFE'S BODYGUARD just hit #1 at the Box Office last week! The highly anticipated THE TOMORROW WAR with Chris Pratt is coming out this week. 

Thanks to classic franchises such as the TERMINATOR franchise, the JAMES BOND franchise, and the BOURNE franchise, as well as new hits like DEADPOOL, TAKEN, JOHN WICK, and most recently THE HITMAN’S WIFE’S BODYGUARD, the world is looking forward to more Action, Adventure, and thrills!

TERMINATOR and AVATAR Director James Cameron says, “Imagination is a force that can actually manifest a reality. Don't put limitations on yourself.”
