All My Life
Solomon Chau and Jennifer Carter (played by Harry Shum Jr. and Jessica Rothe, respectively) feel like they are on top of the world when they get engaged and start to plan their life together. But when Solomon is diagnosed with terminal liver cancer, making their plans for a summer wedding — or any future together, for that matter — to a screeching halt. With time running out, the couple’s friends and family come together to plan a wedding for the young lovers, who desire to be together no matter the end result. Based on a true story, All My Life is an emotional, inspiring and heartbreaking romantic drama about the power of love and the sacrifices we make to be together, for however long we have left.
Milla Jovovich kicks butt in the new supernatural action film, Monster Hunter. The film centers on Captain Artemis and her unit (TI Harris, Meagan Good, and Diego Boneta) who are transported from our world to a mysterious new world filled with dangerous and powerful monsters. The once-unflappable team, shocked and now desperate to survive, team up with a mysterious hunter who has found a way to fight back against the beings hell-bent on total destruction.
