White Bird in a Blizzard
Kat Connors (Shailene Woodley) is a young woman embracing her newfound sexuality when her glamorous but strange mother Eve (Eva Green) vanishes. At first Kat is excited by her new freedom, distracted by the boy next door (Shiloh Fernandez) and the cop working the case (Thomas Jane). But as disturbing facts about the disappearance surface, the mystery begins to haunt her. From acclaimed director Gregg Araki (Mysterious Skin, Smiley Face, Kaboom), based on the best-selling novel. Also starring Christopher Meloni, Gabourey Sidibe and Angela Bassett.
From La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history. Now, Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic. Lucy also stars Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman.
Based on the terrifying doll from The Conjuring, John has found the perfect gift for his wife, Mia-a beautiful, rare vintage doll. But Mia’s delight with Annabelle doesn’t last long.
Crossed Volume 11 TP
The Crossed universe is an unyielding nightmare vision of animal depravity and homicidal insanity. Never before have images of such stark terror been captured and conveyed unflinchingly by master horror storytellers and illustrators than in the miserable, bloody pages of Crossed. In this volume, two of the industry’s best new talents come together to tell very different stories of despair. Simon Spurrier takes you to a picturesque environment in the English countryside with tweeting birds, friendly vicars, crumpets and jam, and a mob of Crossed lurking near the duck pond. No one sees Wheezy, the fat asthmatic kid, hiding up in the old tower – but if he shows his face it will only be the farmer’s wife between him and a bloody fate. The problem is, she’s Crossed, too! Such jolly larks! And newcomer Justin Jordan tells his first diabolical tale as two women attempt to escape the band of monsters out for their blood. When a mysterious, unseen Samaritan helps them escape to a sanctuary, it seems as though they’ve found what little safety there is in the new world order. But trusting anyone in the world of Crossed usually leads to a gut-wrenching and miserable end. Collects Crossed 2014 Annual and issues #57-61 of the ongoing Crossed: Badlands comic book series.
I Should Have Said: Witty Comebacks I Only Wish I’d Said…to Friends and Lovers
Combining quirky, cartoon-like, felt-tip drawings with witty text, I Should Have Said… depicts hilarious conversations between men and women. Daisy de Villeneuve combines modern illustrations with unassuming snippets of dialogue as she explores the drama of modern-day friendship and love. Daisy depicts the scenarios where you wish you had said that thing to an ex, love interest, or any man on the street who has left you reeling after a snarky comment. With a sketchbook, diary-style design, the pared-down but stylish illustrations are captioned with text guaranteed to make you laugh. A gritty and humorous look at modern-day relationships, I Should Have Said… is a rich and affecting comedy of manners, an extended discourse on the nature—and more often than not, the failure—of communication between male and female friends and lovers.
