Directed by D.J. Caruso ("Disturbia"), "xXx: Return of Xander Cage" is the third installment in franchise that started with "xXx" in 2002 and starred Vin Diesel as an extreme sports athlete who is recruited by the government for a top-secret mission. The second installment, "xXx: State of the Union", was released in 2005 and introduced a new agent, Darius Stone, played by Ice Cube. Cube will also make an appearance in "Return of Xander Cage".

Diesel returns as Xander Cage, who is forced out of his self-imposed exile and embarks on a mission to recover a sinister and seemingly unstoppable weapon known as Pandora's Box. This time he joins forces with a group of like-minded thrill-seekers. Samuel L. Jackson, Donnie Yen, Deepika Padukone, Ruby Rose, Nina Dobrev, Kris Wu, Tony Jaa, Rory McCann, Michael Bisping and Toni Collette co-star.

"xXx: Return of Xander Cage" opened in theaters on January 20, 2017 in 2D, RealD 3D and IMAX 3D. It wasn't well received by critics (42% on Rotten Tomatoes), but moviegoers seemed to like it as CinemaScore gave it an "A-". The film is expected to gross $16–20 million in its opening weekend, although M. Night Shyamalan's "Split" has taken charge at the Friday box-office and looks finish with a $34 million debut, leaving Diesel's action sequel well behind.

"Elle" is a new psychological thriller from Dutch master Paul Verhoeven. In his Hollywood days, the director was responsable for ultra-violent masterpieces such as "RoboCop", "Total Recall" and "Starship Troopers", as well as the erotic thriller "Basic Instinct". After the not-so-great "Hollow Man" in 2000, Verhoeven left Hollywood and his next film, the BAFTA-nominated "Zwartboek", came after a six-year hiatus. Now, after another 10 dry years, the director returns with a very different, but equally provocative film. It's also his first French language film.

Isabelle Huppert stars as the successful head of a video game company, who is ruthless both in business and her love life. When she is raped in her own home by a masked assailant, her life spirals out of control as she plots revenge and enters a dangerous game with her suspected attacker. Laurent Lafitte, Anne Consigny, Christian Berkel, Jonas Bloquet, Virginie Efira and Charles Berling co-star.

The film has been generously rewarded with numerous awards, including two Golden Globes for Best Foreign Language Film and Best Actress (Drama), and the Critics' Choice Movie Award for Best Foreign Language Film. Last year, Verhoeven was nominated for the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. It missed out on the BAFTA awards this year, because the film was not yet released in the U.K., so it will probably receive its due recognition next year.

The biggest snub, however came from the Academy Awards. The film was selected as the French entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 89th Academy Awards, but it didn't make the shortlist. It is now known as "one of the greatest Oscar Foreign Language Film Snubs of all-time."

"Elle" opened in limited release on November 11, 2016 in the U.S. and will be released in the U.K. on March 10th.
