DC League of Super-Pets

Stronger than you think

It sure isn’t easy being Superman’s dog! Krypto hails from Krypton and prides himself on having superpowers like his owner, but his social skills are decidedly alien at the dog park, and he has no idea how to be ordinary. But when his best friend Superman and Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and the rest of the Justice League are kidnapped, Krypto is sadly exposed to green kryptonite and stripped of his abilities, while a motley crew of shelter pets is exposed to orange kryptonite and become all-powerful.

Krypto must now learn to be less alien; and more ‘human’ to teach Batman’s dog, Ace, Wonder Woman’s pig, PB, Green Lantern’s squirrel, Ch’p, and The Flash’s turtle, Merton, how to harness their new powers, work together, and become the superheroes they were destined to be. But can they defeat a twisted guinea pig named Lulu and save the Justice League and Metropolis from destruction? And will a bunch of strays find homes with the most famous superheroes on earth?

Minions: The Rise of Gru

Unstoppable from the get-go

This summer, from the biggest global animated franchise in history, comes the original story of how the world’s greatest supervillain first met his iconic Minions, forged cinema’s most despicable crew, and faced off against the most unstoppable criminal force ever assembled in Minions: The Rise of Gru.

Long before he becomes the master of evil, Gru (Oscar nominee Steve Carell) is just a 12-year-old boy in 1970s suburbia, plotting to take over the world from his basement.

Featuring more spectacular action than any film in Illumination’s history and packed with the franchise’s signature subversive humour, Minions: The Rise of Gru stars a thrilling new cast, including the Vicious 6: Taraji P. Henson as cool and confident leader Belle Bottom, whose chain belt doubles as a lethal disco-ball mace; Jean-Claude Van Damme as the nihilistic Jean Clawed, who’s armed (literally) with a giant robotic claw; Lucy Lawless as Nunchuck, whose traditional nun’s habit hides her deadly nun-chucks; Dolph Lundgren as Swedish roller-skate champion Svengeance, who dispenses his enemies with spin kicks from his spiked skates; and Danny Trejo as Stronghold, whose giant iron hands are both a menace to others and a burden to him.

The film also stars Russell Brand as Young Dr Nefario, an aspiring mad scientist, Michelle Yeoh as Master Chow, an acupuncturist with mad kung fu skills, and Oscar winner Julie Andrews as Gru’s maddeningly self-absorbed mom.

Steered by the franchise’s original creators, Minions: The Rise of Gru is produced by visionary Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and his long-time collaborators Janet Healy and Chris Renaud. The film is directed by returning franchise film-maker Kyle Balda ( Despicable Me 3, Minions), co-directed by Brad Ableson ( The Simpsons) and Jonathan del Val ( The Secret Life of Pets films), and features the iconic voice of Pierre Coffin as the Minions and a killer ’70s soundtrack, courtesy of legendary Grammy-winning music producer Jack Antonoff.

Feel the need ... the need for speed

Facing an uncertain future and confronting the ghosts of his past, Maverick is drawn into a confrontation with his own deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who will be chosen to fly it.
