Felix and the Treasure of Morgäa

Taking advantage of his mother’s absence as she departs on a cruise ship for some rest and relaxation, 12-year-old Félix (voiced by Daniel Brochu) sets out to find his father, a fisherman who disappeared at sea two years earlier. He’s accompanied by his cat Rover, who humorously acts like a dog, and aided by an aged sailor named Tom. Together, they navigate the choppy waters in search of the fabled treasure that Felix’s father was after when he disappeared. This spirited animated adventure beautifully evokes the sea of possibilities its young adventurer embraces.

The Misfits

Even a federal maximum-security prison can’t hold Richard Pace (Pierce Brosnan), a brilliant international thief. But his daring escape and high-octane car chase, eluding the FBI and police, ends with him being scooped up by The Misfits, a band of modern-day Robin Hoods – led by the eccentric and charismatic Ringo (Nick Cannon), Violet (Jamie Chung), the Prince (Rami Jaber), Wick (Mike Angelo) and Pace’s daughter Hope (Hermione Corfield). The skilled group convinces Pace to join them to pull off the heist of the century: stealing millions in gold bars kept under one of the most secure prisons on earth, owned by rogue businessman Schultz (Tim Roth), and used for funding terrorist groups worldwide. Aside from the money, Pace wants revenge against Schultz, the man behind his incarceration. From LA to Abu Dhabi, it will take supercharged engines, forged identities, multiple cons, camels, nitro and massive explosions to succeed.
