Starring Jamie Bell (“King Kong,” “Flags of Our Fathers,” and “Jumper”) in his first starring role in a British film since his breakout debut in “Billy Elliot,” “Mister Foe” a story of people seeing life differently.

Hallam Foe (Bell) is a troubled young man whose knack for voyeurism paradoxically reveals his darkest fears, and his most peculiar desires. A 17-year-old misfit, Hallam spends lonely days spying on others at his father’s (Ciaran Hinds) estate in the Scottish Highlands. Haunted by his mother’s sudden death, he begins to suspect that his beautiful step mother (Claire Forlani) may have had a played a hand in it. Confusing matters even more for Hallam, he finds himself attracted and repelled by her in equal measure.

When the tension that has been brewing between the two erupts, Hallam runs away. Out of money and out of friends, he crashes down into reality in Edinburgh. Adept at fading into the background and peering in on the lives of others to escape his own every day life, he continues what he learned at home to the city. He soon becomes obsessed with Kate (Sophia Myles), who bears an uncanny resemblance to his mother. When his world collides with Kate’s and the reality of life back home, he is faced with betraying the memory of the mother he longs for or using his one last chance to grow up.

Directed and co-written by David Mackenzie (“Young Adam”), “Mister Foe” stars Jamie Bell, Sophia Myles (“Tristan + Isolde,” “Thunderbirds”), Claire Forlani (“Meet Joe Black,” “CSI: NY”) and Ciaran Hinds (“There Will Be Blood,” upcoming “Stop Loss”). “Mister Foe” is produced by Gillian Berrie, co-written by Ed Whitmore, based on the novel “Hallam Foe” by Peter Jinks, and executive produced by Matthew Justice. The film was an Official Selection at the Berlin Film Festival and the Edinburgh Film Festival.

In DISASTER MOVIE, the filmmaking team behind the hits “Scary Movie,” “Date Movie,” “Epic Movie” and “Meet The Spartans” this time puts its unique, inimitable stamp on one of the biggest and most bloated movie genres of all time — the disaster film. DISASTER MOVIE follows the comic misadventures of a group of ridiculously attractive twenty-somethings during one fateful night as they try to make their way to safety while every known natural disaster and catastrophic event — asteroids, twisters, earthquakes, the works — hits the city and their path as they try to solve a series of mysteries to end the rampant destruction. Taking aim at everything and everyone, from “Indiana Jones” and “Iron Man” to Amy Winehouse and “High School Musical,” DISASTER MOVIE lampoons the blockbuster movie, pop culture icons and public figures along the way as Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer satirize everything as only they can.

Trevor Holden has just witnessed his boyfriend Darrell overdose on heroin–again. And as his oldest friend, Trevor feels a responsibility to help Darrell in his latest attempt at sobriety, much to the dismay of his own best friends Jake and Andie. But when Darrell starts using again, Trevor is finally ready to call it quits. And just when he does, he meets the ever so charming Ephram. Simply being everything that Darrell is not immediately wins Ephram a number of points. As Trevor’s relationship with Ephram quickly progresses, it starts to put a strain on his friendships with Jake and Andie. Jake, the self-proclaimed sex-addict, is starting to worry a little bit about his past catching up with him, namely in the form of HIV. And Andie, who drunkenly ends her sexual dry spell with a one-night stand, realizes that Jake might have less to worry about than she does. Meanwhile, Ephram accepts a job thousands of miles away in New York City, and he wants Trevor to go with him. Now, what started out as Trevor’s own personal existential journey turns into a path that will lead everyone to what is most important: themselves.
