New Movies This Week
You Cannot Kill David Arquette – Available on VoD August 28th
Directed by Price James and David Darg
Branded as the most hated man in wrestling after winning a highly controversial WCW World Heavyweight Championship in 2000, actor David Arquette attempts a rocky return to the sport that stalled his promising Hollywood career. Dangerously determined to redeem his reputation and reclaim his self-respect, Arquette will stop at nothing to earn his place in professional wrestling.
Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets – Available on VoD September 1st
Directed by Bill Ross IV and Turner Ross
A genre-bending docudrama that focuses on a Las Vegas dive bar named ‘The Roaring 20s’ as it prepares to close its doors forever.

Ghost Tropic – Available on VoD August 28th
Starring Saadia Bentaïeb, Maaike Neuville, and Nora Dari
Khadija is a fifty-eight-year-old Maghrebi cleaning woman living in Brussels in the wake of the 2016 bombings that shook the city. After work one night, she falls asleep on the last subway train, wakes up at the end of the line and has no choice but to make her way home–all the way across the city–on foot. Along the way, she has a series of encounters: with a security guard, a convenience store clerk, a group of teenagers. She asks for help and she gives it and slowly, steadily makes her way.
The Mole Agent – Available on VoD September 1st
From Maite Alberdi
When a family grows concerned for their mother’s well-being in a retirement home, private investigator Romulo hires 83-year-old Sergio to pose as a new resident and undercover spy inside the facility.
