Nisos

NisosEverything looks calm and peaceful in the closed society of an island when the childless ‘Lord’ of the island dies in the most unexpected and inexplicable way thus leaving behind an immense property and everyone wondering who is going to be the chosen to inherit all this money. His will, however, does not come without surprises, one of them being that his fortune can only be shared among the four “estates” of the village, i.e., to those four that old man Dikaios did not even want to set eyes on: the president, the police officer, the teacher and the local priest of the community. On one condition will they be entitled to the property; the four letters corresponding to each and every one of them will be read in public within a week. This leaves islanders suspecting and blaming each other. Stories from the past come to light, all four of them have something to be afraid of or hide thus eventually betraying themselves. This is where constant accusations and tragi-comic incidents start occurring. Indicative cases such as these of fatherless children, unsolved crimes, gambling and and illicit antiquities trade, an ex-porn star, terrorists, heterosexual and homosexual affairs and an abundance of other “activities” previously well-hidden, now come to light one after the other. On top of everything else, one day before the deadline expires, the dead body of a person who seems to know just as much as old man Dikaios did, is found floating at a remote beach of the island. The president, the policeman, the teacher and the priest are the four main suspects…

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs – 3D

Cloudy with a Chance of MeatballsIn the small island of Swallow Falls, the outcast boy Flint Lockwood is a clumsy inventor encouraged by his mother. When the island is not capable of exporting the production of sardine, the fish becomes the basis of the alimentation of the locals that have to consume it all the times. Years later, Flint’s mother dies and his skeptical father Tim Lockwood, who is an old fisherman that has a store that sells sardine, gives a partnership in his store and invites Flint to work with him. But Flint has just invented a food processor that converts water into food and decides to test the piece of equipment. However, he accidentally launches it to the space and begins to rain hamburgers and other food in the island. A television sends the trainee of the weather department Sam Sparks to cover the phenomenon and Flint becomes famous. However, the greedy and glutton Mayor Shelbourne overworks the machine and the food becomes a menace to the human race.

Two astronauts awaken in a hyper-sleep chamber aboard a seemingly abandoned spacecraft. It’s pitch black, they are disoriented, and the only sound is a low rumble and creak from the belly of the ship. They can’t remember anything: Who are they? What is their mission? With Lt.

Slowly the spacecraft’s shocking, deadly secrets are revealed…and the astronauts find their own survival is more important than they could ever have imagined.

The Book of Eli

The Book of EliIn the not-too-distant future, some 30 years after the final war, a solitary man walks across the wasteland that was once America. Empty cities, broken highways, seared earth – all around him, the marks of catastrophic destruction. There is no civilization here, no law. The roads belong to gangs that would murder a man for his shoes, an ounce of water… or for nothing at all. But they’re no match for this traveler. A warrior not by choice but necessity, Eli seeks only peace but, if challenged, will cut his attackers down before they realize their fatal mistake. It’s not his life he guards so fiercely but his hope for the future; a hope he has carried and protected for 30 years and is determined to realize. Driven by this commitment and guided by his belief in something greater than himself, Eli does what he must to survive – and continue. Only one other man in this ruined world understands the power Eli holds, and is determined to make his own: Carnegie, the self-appointed despot of a makeshift town of thieves and gunmen.
