Action Packed films
A huge box office success, Furious 7 is the third highest-grossing film of 2015 so far and the latest in The Fast and The Furious franchise. Filled with international action and intrigue, action genre icons Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson lead a star-studded cast. It features Paul Walker’s final film performance. The film was unfinished when he died, and his brothers acted as stand-ins to complete it.
Mad Max: Fury Road is the fourth installment of the post-apocalyptic adventure series. The visceral and visual thrill-ride comes three decades after the last title in the series, this time starring Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy. Completing our action trio is Spy, starring Melissa McCarthy as a CIA analyst tapped to avert a global disaster. With her comedic talents at the helm, it provides plenty of thrills, even while spoofing an entire genre.
A couple of great family titles balance out the month. The hit film Cinderella is the gorgeous retelling of the classic fairy tale helmed by director Kenneth Branagh, and starring Cate Blanchett as the Wicked Stepmother and Lily James as Ella. Finally, Pitch Perfect 2, the story of an all-female a capella singing group, is the sequel to 2012’s Pitch Perfect, filled with great harmonies, collegiate competition and hilarious hijinks. It stars Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson.
The indie movie selection this month starts out with I’ll See You in My Dreams Then, Boulevard stars Robin Williams in one of his last film appearances, as a husband confronting his secret life; and Adam Scott and Taylor Schilling star in The Overnight, a comedy about two young couples with wildly different values who become friends in Seattle during an evening of exploration and discovery.
Also notable is Eden, a French film about a pioneering DJ in the Parisian underground dance club scene in the 1990s, and the allure and power of these DJs. Daft Punk, the French group that emerged out of that “scene, ” makes a few amusing cameos. Plus, the film Saint Laurent is a biopic about a tumultuous decade in the world famous designer Yves Saint Laurent’s life, the 1970s.

Justin, how much of a challenge was an action-packed film for you?
Justin Long: "I had never done a movie like this. It was just crazy for me to see how long and involved all these stunts and sequences were. You see the movie, you sort of forget what you're doing. You forget what the means to the end is or what the end is going to be. And then you see it and all those weeks and weeks of waiting and setups and da da da, just fades in seconds of film. These scenes that I freaked out about where I was doing push ups and trying to get in character to deliver all these lines, they're just like, ‘Bah,’ and then cut to another guy and back to me, going ‘Bah!’…
