1. The Longest Ride

2. Jupiter Ascending
Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) is stuck in a job she hates and has no aspirations whatsoever. But when Caine Wise (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, tells her that she’s heir to Earth, her whole life changes. There is a bounty on her head, and Balem (Eddie Redmayne), one of the heirs of the most powerful alien dynasty in the universe, is unwilling to give the planet up to her.
Nicky Spurgeon (Will Smith) is an experienced con-man who teaches Jess Barrett (Margot Robbie) the ins and outs of the game. When the two become close, they break things off. Three years later, they meet again, seemingly in competition for what could be the biggest score of their lives.
4. The Age of Adaline
On a cold winter night in 1935, Adaline Bowman’s (Blake Lively) life changed forever.

Luckily, her fairy godmother (Helena Bonham carter) arrives just in time to help her.
