The reporter travels to a remote island in the Swedish coast, not knowing what awaits him there. Meanwhile, Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara), an unusual but ingenious investigator, is hired to profile Blomkvist, a job that ultimately leads her to joining Mikael in his investigation of the murder. Directed by: David Fincher.

  • Contagion (Warner Bros. Pictures) – There is a lethal virus spreading through the air and killing people within days. Beth Emhoff (Gwyneth Paltrow) and her son are among the first to be affected after returning from a trip to Asia. Her husband, Mitch (Matt Damon), however, remains immune to the disease. As the epidemic grows, the worldwide medical community fights against time to find a cure and control the panic that is spreading even faster than the virus itself. At the same time, people struggle to survive in a society crumbling before their very eyes. Directed by: Steven Soderbergh.

Colombiana (EuropaCorp. Distribution) – After witnessing the murder of her parents in Colombia, nine-year-old Cataleya (Zoe Saldana) escapes to America, where her uncle Emilio (Cliff Curtis) lives.

Fifteen years pass and, in search of revenge, Cataleya delves into the past in order to find out who killed her parents, even if it means losing everything she loves. Directed by: Olivier Megaton.

  • Ironclad (Warner Bros. Pictures) – Four months after he signed the Magna Carta in 1215, King John of England (Paul Giamatti) recruits an army of mercenaries to kill those who are against his absolute power and control.

Directed by: Jonathan English.
  • The Rite (Warner Bros. Pictures) – Seminary student Michael Kovak (Colin O’Donoghue) is sent to study exorcism at the Vatican, in spite of his own doubts about the controversial practice and even his own faith.

Only when he is sent to apprentice with the unorthodox Father Lucas Trevant (Anthony Hopkins), a legendary priest who has performed thousands of exorcisms, does Michael’s armor begin to fall. Directed by: Mikael Håfström.
