Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

Leaving Hulu on February 6

Director: Doug Liman

Screenplay: Christopher McQuarrie, Jez Butterworth, John-Henry Butterworth

Cast: Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton, Brendan Gleeson

Based on Hiroshi Sakurazaka’s hit light science fiction novel “All You Need Is Kill”, Edge of Tomorrow follows Major William Cage (Cruise), an officer who is about to embark on what is his most dangerous mission yet. When an alien race mercilessly strikes Earth, no amount of military force can protect the world from its extraterrestrial clutches. As Cage embarks on what is considered a suicide mission, it doesn’t take long until the formidable major is killed in the act. But Cage’s life doesn’t end there. Stuck in a time loop, Cage is forced to relive the same brutal enemy that got him killed in the first place, over and over again. The only difference? Each time Cage is thrown into a loop, his combat skills increase, together with Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt). Garnering positive reviews from critics, the film managed to gross over $370.5 million worldwide during its theatrical run.

I, Robot (2004)

Leaving Hulu on February 14

Director: Alex Proyas

Screenplay: Jeff Vintar, Akiva Goldsman

Cast: Will Smith, Bridget Moynahan, Bruce Greenwood, James Cromwell, Chi McBride, Alan Tudyk

Set in 2035, I, Robot takes place during a period where technology and robots have become central to human society, much to the disdain of techno-phobic homicide detective Del Spooner (Will Smith). As part of the Chicago PD force, Spooner is in charge of investigating the suicide of the leading but reclusive robotics scientist, Dr. Alred Lanning (James Cromwell). Convinced that there’s a hidden and more sinister motive lurking underneath Lanning’s apparent suicide, Del Spooner gets deeper into the case, only to encounter the late doctor’s plans with the USR (United States Robotics) corporation. Surrounding Del Spooner are characters that put the detective’s biases toward robots to the test, including robot psychologist Dr. Susan Calvin (Bridget Moynahan), the emotional-leaning robot Sonny (Alan Tudyk), and Lt . John Bergin (Chi McBride).

Previously suffering from bone cancer, Gus is currently in remission (at the expense of losing his leg).

Director: Phil Lord, Christopher Miller

Screenplay: Michael Bacall

Cast: Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Brie Larson, Dave Franco, Rob Riggle, Ice Cube

21 Jump Street first takes audiences back to 2005, when Schmidt (Hill) and Jenko (Tatum) were your typical high school duo – one acing class, the other coasting through as the athletic cool dude. Fast-forward to 2012, and they’ve gone from high school drama to being rookie cops on bike patrol, hoping to nail some arrests. But after a goof-up, they’re sent undercover back to the good ol’ high school scene to track down a sketchy synthetic drug. There’s a bit of an identity mix-up, landing Schmidt in the easy classes, trying out for Peter Pan, and catching feelings for a fellow classmate. Meanwhile, Jenko’s in AP classes and rubbing elbows with the overachievers. Their return to high school becomes one big trigger that reveals their long-lost dreams — they’ll have to pull themselves together before bad guys take over.
