"Frontiers" - Originally scheduled to be part of the "After Dark Horrorfest 2007," After Dark Films president Courtney Solomon decided to pull the movie and give it its own theatrical release in 2008.

"Frontiers" - While an extreme rightwing candidate advances to the second ballot of the presidential election, a group of young armed robbers holes up in a backwoods inn. The inn is located in an old mining wasteland, and its managers are a particularly sordid lot -- neo-Nazi cannibals.

City Of Men

With their eighteenth birthdays fast approaching, Laranjinha sets out to find the father he never met, while Acerola struggles to raise his own young son.

Diary Of The Dead

"Diary Of The Dead" is an independent horror film written, produced and directed by famed "Dead" saga director George A. Romero.

According to Romero, "Diary Of The Dead" is not the fifth film chronologically in director George A. Romero's "Dead" movie series. However, in "an attempt to reestablish a lucrative franchise, "Diary Of The Dead" is, technically and philosophically, a reboot of the myth.

Even though the fourth "Dead" film was studio produced through Universal Studios, "Diary of the Dead" was produced by Romero's and his producer friend Peter Grunwald's Romero-Grunwald Productions with Artfire Films and will be released stateside by Voltage Pictures.

The "Diary Of The Dead" plot involves a group of film school students who are filming a horror movie in the wilderness, and are attacked by zombies. It takes place during the same night as Night of the Living Dead. It gives a new perspective on the whole phenomenon as the students learn about the zombies through first-hand experience as opposed to the people locked up in the farmhouse in the first "Dead" film, "Night of the Living Dead."

Definitely Maybe

- Ryan Reynolds, (not to be confused with Ryan Gosling), stars as Will Hayes, a 30-something Manhattan dad in the midst of a divorce when his 10 year-old daughter, Maya (Abigail Breslin), starts to question him about his life before marriage. Maya wants to know absolutely everything about how her parents met and fell in love. Will's story begins in 1992, as a young, starry-eyed aspiring politician who moves to New York from Wisconsin in order to work on the Clinton campaign. For Maya, Will relives his past as an idealistic young man learning the ins and outs of big city politics, and recounts the history of his romantic relationships with three very different women.

Will hopelessly attempts a "PG" version of his story for his daughter and changes the names so Maya has to guess who is the woman her father finally married. Is her mother Will's college sweetheart, the dependable girl next-door Emily (Elizabeth Banks)? Is she his longtime best friend and confidante, the apolitical April (Isla Fisher)? Or is she the free-spirited but ambitious journalist Summer (Rachel Weisz)?

As Maya puts together the pieces of her dad's romantic puzzle, she begins to understand that love is not so simple or easy. And as Will tells her his tale, Maya helps him to understand that it's definitely never too late to go back...and maybe even possible to find a happy ending.

The reversed story of "Mamma Mia The Movie" but a few months earlier and without Meryl Streep and the music.
