CAST
DARKEST HOUR (2018)
Starring Gary Oldman, Stephen Dillane, John Hurt, Lily James, Ben Mendelsohn, Kristin Scott Thomas, Richard Lumsden, Charley Palmer Rothwell, Hannah Steele and Nicholas Jones. Directed by Joe Wright.

Within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill (BAFTA Award winner Gary Oldman) must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation. As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a skeptical King, and his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history.

SNOWPIERCER (2014)
Starring Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Chris Evans, Kang-Ho Song, Octavia Spencer, John Hurt, Ed Harris and Alison Pill. Directed by Joon-Ho Bong.

It's been 18 years since a failed global warming experiment froze the earth and killed off most life on the planet. The few remaining humans live on the Snowpiercer, a train on an infinite loop around the globe. For those at the front, it's a lavish paradise of drugs and sushi in the lap of luxury; for those trapped in the tail section, life is short and cruel. But change is in the air.

Curtis, desperate to escape the tail of the train, plans an uprising, aided by his mentor Gilliam (Hurt). What begins as an isolated riot explodes into a mass revolution, an all-or-nothing push to the front of the train, and a war for humanity's future.
