Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez team up to get their cut in this new crime thriller
The film is based on the series of bestselling novels by Donald E. Westlake. Parker (Statham) is a professional thief who lives by a personal code of ethics: Don’t steal from people who can’t afford it and don’t hurt people who don’t deserve it. But on his latest heist, his crew double crosses him, steals his stash and leaves him for dead.
Determined to make sure they regret it, Parker tracks them to Palm Beach, playground of the rich and famous, where the crew is planning its biggest heist ever. Donning the disguise of a rich Texan, Parker takes on an unlikely partner, Leslie (Lopez), a savvy insider who’s short on cash but big on looks, smarts and ambition. Together, they devise a plan to hijack the score, take everyone down and get away clean.

THE LAST STAND
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Johnny Knoxville and Forest Whitaker star in this new action hit.
After leaving his LAPD narcotics post following a bungled operation, Ray Owens (Schwarzenegger) moved out of Los Angeles and settled in as sheriff of a small, sleepy border town. But that peaceful existence is shattered when Gabriel Cortez, the most notorious drug kingpin in the western hemisphere, makes a deadly yet spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy.
With the help of a fierce band of lawless mercenaries, Cortez begins racing toward the U.S.-Mexico border at 250 mph in a specially-outfitted Corvette ZR1 with a hostage in tow. Cortez path: straight through Sheriff Ray’s town, where the whole of the U.S. law enforcement, led by Agent John Bannister (Whitaker), will have its final opportunity to intercept him.
At first, Ray is counted out because of the perceived ineptitude of his small town force. Ultimately, Ray rallies his team and takes the matter into his own hands, setting the stage for a high-speed, bullet-riddled showdown.
