Before I Fall
Opens: March 3

The plot centers on Samantha Kingston (Zoey Deutch from Vampire Academy and Why Him?), a high school senior who finds that she may be living the last day of her life over and over until she gets it right. If you had only one day left on earth who would you kiss, who would you tell the real truth to, who would you save? Amid that, she must untangle the mystery surrounding her death—and discover the true value of everything she is in danger of losing. The film also stars Halston Sage, Medalion Rahimi, Cynthy Wu (as Samantha’s best friends); Jennifer Beals, Diego Boneta, Elena Kampouris and Nicholas Lea.

Félicie gets a chance to audition for the celebrated school of the Paris Opera Ballet by briefly assuming the identity of the ruthless, snobby and bratty Camille Le Haut (Maddie Ziegler). Penniless, and without any formal dance experience, 11-year-old Félicie finds her training, and making friends at the ballet school among her fellow-students, to be very difficult. She finds a mentor: a mysterious cleaning woman with a limp, Odette (singer Carly Rae Jepsen), who turns out to be a former prima ballerina.

At first, he refuses, but the Professor reveals that he has been waiting a long time for her to appear. Laura possesses an extraordinary fighting prowess and is in many ways like Wolverine. She is pursued by sinister figures working for a powerful corporation because her DNA contains the secret that connects her to Logan.

chicago-justice

On March 1, the unprecedented four-series crossover event featuring Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D., Chicago Med and the new series Chicago Justice will air on NBC between 8 and 11 PM.

Chicago Justice, of course, is just like itsbrethren in the Chicago P.D. The State’s Attorney’s dedicated team of prosecutors and investigators navigate heated city politics and controversy head-on, while fearlessly pursuing justice. As they take on the city’s high-stakes and often media-frenzied cases, they must balance public opinion, power struggles within the system and their unwavering passion for the law. At the center of the show is prosecutor Peter Stone (Philip Winchester from Strike Back), the ambitious Assistant State’s Attorney and Deputy Chief of the Special Prosecutions Bureau. Relentless in his quest for justice, it’s more than a job for Stone, it’s a purpose. Son of renowned New York City District Attorney Ben Stone, Stone is shooting at a target that only he can see. This often puts him in direct conflict with Mark Jefferies (Carl Weathers from Colony and Rocky franchise), the Cook County State’s Attorney who sees the world through a political prism. While Jefferies believes that a good prosecutor gives the jury and the public a clear, clean and digestible narrative, Stone is convinced the law isn’t always best served in a sound bite. Together with their team, Stone and Jefferies strive to bring some much-needed justice to the city of Chicago. The team also includes Assistant State’s Attorney Anna Valdez (Monica Barbaro from UnReal), a passionate newcomer, who’s more flexible and willing to bend the rules to get the right result; Laura Nagel (Joelle Carter from Justified), a tough-as-nails State’s Attorney Investigator that sees each case through the eyes of the victim; and Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda, formerly on Chicago P.D.), a level-headed and by-the-book detective turned Chief Investigator.

Chicago Justice will then move to its regular night on March 5 at 9 PM.

Here is a trailer for Chicago Justice:
