Medical engineer Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) goes on her first space mission involving the maintenance of a satellite. Assisted by veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski (George Clooney), they endure one week in zero gravity only to end up in grave danger as they attempt to dodge the debris of a Russian satellite that has just been struck down. Losing all communications with Houston as well as the lives of their other three companions, the two strive to make use of what resources they have left to get back to Earth in one piece, with the said debris continuing to haunt them each hour and a half as they hop from one space station to another. Gravity is one hell of a visual experience. If you have yet to see a movie on IMAX, then choose this to be the first. Why?

A new threat from an ancient foe faces Asgard as the Dark Elves led by Malekith awaken from their eternal slumber after the accidental rediscovery of the Aether by Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), to whom it binds. The rare alignment of the nine realms randomly linking different worlds including the Earth has allowed such occurrence to happen. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) asks for the help of his brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston), who has been locked away in Asgard for the crimes he committed on Earth. After his successful prison breakout, Loki, along with Jane, accompanies Thor to the dark world through his secret portal. The big question remains to be whether the mischievous frost giant would betray his adoptive brother, or is it about time for them to forgive, forget, and fight against a common foe?
