Backed by his wife and consumed with lethal ambition, the action-packed film takes a dark turn as Macbeth murders the king to take over the royal throne.

IN THE HEART OF THE SEA

Directed by Oscar award-winning heavyweight Ron Howard and starring heartthrobs Chris Hemsworth and Cillian Murphy, this epic movie is based on the 1820 event, which saw a whaling ship preyed upon by an enormous sperm whale, resulting in the crew stranded at sea for 90 days.
