CAST
HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA 3: A MONSTER VACATION (2018)
Starring Adam Sandler, Selena Gomez, Andy Samberg, Steve Buscemi, Mel Brooks, David Spade, Fran Drescher, Kevin James, Keegan-Michael Key and Molly Shannon. Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky.

Mavis surprises Dracula with a family voyage on a luxury Monster Cruise Ship so he can take a vacation from providing everyone else’s vacation at the hotel. The rest of Drac’s Pack cannot resist going along and once they leave port, romance zings Drac when he meets the mysterious ship captain Ericka. Now it’s Mavis’ turn to play the overprotective parent, keeping her dad and Ericka apart. Little do they know that his “too good to be true” love interest is actually a descendent of Van Helsing, arch nemesis to Dracula and all monsters!
BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY (2018)
Starring Hedy Lamarr, Mel Brooks, Diane Kruger, Peter Bogdanovich and Denise Loder-Deluca. Directed by Alexandra Dean.

What do the most ravishingly beautiful actress of the 1930s and 40s and the inventor whose concepts were the basis of cell phone and bluetooth technology have in common? They are both Hedy Lamarr, the glamour icon whose ravishing visage was the inspiration for Snow White and Cat Woman and a technological trailblazer who perfected a radio system to throw Nazi torpedoes off course during WWII. Weaving interviews and clips with never-before-heard audio tapes of Hedy speaking on the record about her incredible life - from her beginnings as an Austrian Jewish emigre to her scandalous nude scene in the 1933 lm Ecstasy to her glittering Hollywood life to her ground-breaking, but completely uncredited inventions to her latter years when she became a recluse, impoverished and almost forgotten - 'Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story' brings to light the story of an unusual and accomplished woman, spurned as too beautiful to be smart, but a role model to this day.
MR PEABODY & SHERMAN (2014)
Starring Ty Burrell, Stanley Tucci, Mel Brooks, Stephen Colbert, Leslie Mann, Max Charles, Allison Janney, Ariel Winter, Stephen Tobolowsky and Patrick Warburton. Directed by Rob Minkoff.

The dazzlingly brilliant Mr. Peabody – who happens to be a dog – and his adopted boy Sherman embark on a comical time travel adventure through the defining moments of world history. But even a transcendent genius like Peabody must grapple with the most daunting challenge of any era: figuring out how to be a parent.
