Óscar Jaenada portrays de titular character and is supported by great talent that includes Bárbara Mori, Ilse Salas, Ana Layevska, Adal Ramones, Gabriela de la Garza, Ximena Gónzalez-Rubio, Luis Gerardo Méndez, Joaquín Cosio and many more. This is the untold story of Mexico's greatest and most beloved comedy film star of all time, from his humble origins on the small stage to the bright lights of Hollywood.

The pic directed by Roger Donaldson is about an ex-CIA operative that is brought back on a very personal mission and finds himself pitted against his former pupil in a deadly game involving high level CIA officials and the Russian president-elect.

Straight from the UK is the imported "Starred Up" starring "Skins" actor Jack O'Connell. The film directed by David Mackenzie follows a troubled and explosively violent teenager when he is transferred to adult prison where he finally meets his match - a man who also happens to be his father. So... this is what would've happened to Cock after the original series ended. Another thriller opening this weekend to a wider audience is called "The Calling" with Susan Surandon who plays Detective Hazel Micallef. She hasn't had much to worry about in the sleepy town of Fort Dundas until a string of gruesome murders in the surrounding countryside brings her face to face with a serial killer driven by a higher calling.
