Murder Party
Pivot Pictures is excited to announce the cinema release of the most delicious, devious and most dazzling film of the year, Murder Party in cinemas nationally Thursday 28 July 2022.

When the landlord and patriarch Cesar is found dead, everyone present becomes a suspect. Suddenly Jeanne’s mission turns into a life-size investigation to expose the murderer.

Thirteen Lives

The trailer for Ron Howard’s next, starring Viggo Mortensen, Colin Farrell, Joel Edgerton, Tom Bateman, and Paul Gleeson, has been released.

Thirteen Lives recounts the incredible true story of the tremendous global effort to rescue a Thai soccer team who become trapped in the Tham Luang cave during an unexpected rainstorm. Faced with insurmountable odds, a team of the world’s most skilled and experienced divers – uniquely able to navigate the maze of flooded, narrow cave tunnels – join with Thai forces and more than 10,000 volunteers to attempt a harrowing rescue of the twelve boys and their coach. With impossibly high stakes and the entire world watching, the group embarks on their most challenging dive yet, showcasing the limitlessness of the human spirit in the process.
Thirteen Lives hits select theaters exclusively for one week on July 29. Launching globally on Prime Video on August 5

Everything is under control. But that careful balance is upended when an unwelcome shadow from her past, David (Tim Roth) returns, carrying with him the horrors of Margaret’s past. Battling her rising fear, Margaret must confront the monster she’s evaded for two decades who has come to conclude their unfinished business.
