Just as they decide to separate, Linda and Paxton find life has other plans when they are stuck at home in London in a mandatory lockdown.

THE JUNGLE BOOK (2016)
Starring Neel Sethi, Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Christopher Walken, Lupita Nyong'o, Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson and Giancarlo Esposito. Directed by Jon Favreau.

An all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli, a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan, who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera, and the free-spirited bear Baloo.

Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa, a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotises the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie, who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire.

Starring Ben Kingsley, Elle Fanning, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Toni Collette.

Beneath its charming cobblestone streets dwell the Boxtrolls, foul monsters who crawl out of the sewers at night and steal the two things the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses... at least that’s the legend residents have always believed.

In truth, the Boxtrolls are a community of quirky and lovable creatures who wear recycled cardboard boxes the way turtles wear their shells. This timid and kind-hearted band of tinkerers makes nightly forays above ground to search for choice bits of junk that they use to build wondrously ingenious contraptions in the underground caverns where they live.
