HONEST THIEF (2020)
Starring Liam Neeson, Kate Walsh, Jai Courtney, Jeffrey Donovan, Anthony Ramos, Robert Patrick, Jasmine Cephas Jones, Birol Tarkan Yildiz, Adam Teper and Jose Guns Alves. Directed by Mark Williams.

Tom is a lot of things, but two in particular: an infamous thief and a newfound romantic. His feelings for his new flame Annie have inspired him to right his past wrongs and leave behind his life of crime. Although he has always worked with integrity and precision, exclusively carrying out non-violent bank jobs, he does not want his relationship with Annie to be built upon lies.

He resolves to turn himself in to the FBI and forfeit the money he has stolen in return for a plea deal and a clean slate. When he calls the Boston FBI field office to confess and set a meeting, Agents Baker and Meyers laugh it off as a prank. They send their subordinates, Agents Nivens and Hall, instead.

The two younger agents are shocked to discover that Tom is the real deal, and see Tom’s stolen money as their golden ticket to a better life. So begins a cat-and-mouse game where good and bad become tangled, but love always rings true.

I, FRANKENSTEIN (2014)
Starring Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighty, Miranda Otto, Aden Young, Yvonne Strahovski and Jai Courtney. Directed by Peter Beattie.

A contemporary fantasy thriller in which the original monster of Victor Frankenstein stands between the human race and an uprising of supernatural creatures determined to overthrow the world. Adapted from the graphic novel of the same name by Kevin Grevioux, it picks up from the moment that the classic Mark Shelley novel leaves off: with the death of Victor Frankenstein and the abandonment of his creature to meet its end in the Arctic wilderness. But the creature doesn’t die – nor does it age the way humans do. And so Frankenstein’s creature makes its way back to civilisation – to a world that is dominated by an epic power struggle between two clans – the Demons and the Gargoyles.
