Collection of five action films. In '47 Ronin' (2013), with the underhand machinations of their rival Lord Kira (Tadanobu Asano) blamed for the death of their master, a group of abandoned ronin recruit British-Japanese outcast Kai (Keanu Reeves) to help plan their revenge.
Vastly outnumbered, but inspired by the teachings of Kuranosuke Oishi (Hiroyuki Sanada), Kai and the other ronin engage in a bloody battle with forces under the command of Kira's loyal subordinate Mizuki (Rinko Kikuchi).
In 'R.I.P.D.' (2013), Ryan Reynolds stars as a dead cop having to take on supernatural villains when he's recruited into the 'Rest in Peace Department' - the afterlife police force.
After being killed on active duty, S.W.A.T. team member Nick Walker (Reynolds) finds himself transported to the unearthly offices of the R.I.P.D., who protect the living from the ranks of villainous lost souls.
Eager to hunt down his killer, he is teamed up with old-time ornery gunslinger Roy Pulsipher (Jeff Bridges), who wastes no time in giving Nick a crash course in afterlife policing...
In 'Immortals' (2011), the power-hungry King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) has laid waste to Greece in his search for the legendary Epirus Bow, a weapon of limitless power that, in the wrong hands, could bring about the end of human life.
Ancient law dictates that the Gods must not intervene in human conflict, and so they remain powerless to stop Hyperion and his merciless hordes - until young peasant Theseus (Henry Cavill), secretly chosen by Zeus (Luke Evans/John Hurt), steps forward to save the day. 'Dracula Untold' (2014) follows Vlad Tepes (Evans) and his struggle to protect his family and his people from the malevolent Ottoman sultan Mehmed (Dominic Cooper), whose ever-expanding empire has put Vlad's homeland in danger of being conquered.
Desperate to find a solution, Vlad seeks the help of a mysterious man (Charles Dance) who grants him the powers to defeat his enemy.
But do these newly-gained powers come at too high a price?
Finally, in 'Lucy' (2014), Scarlett Johansson stars as the titular heroine who finds herself caught up in the dodgy dealings of the Taiwanese mob while living in Taipei.
Forced into becoming a smuggler, she is drugged before a package is inserted into her stomach for safe transit.
Lucy is then severely beaten for protesting her situation which results in the package bursting inside her and leaking into her bloodstream.
As the drug takes over her body, Lucy becomes capable of using a higher brain capacity than humans are naturally accustomed to which makes her able to use telekinesis and absorb knowledge rapidly.
Meanwhile, neurological scientist Professor Norman (Morgan Freeman) takes an interest in Lucy's evolution as she takes revenge on those responsible for her extraordinary transformation and evades those who wish to harness her powers for their own ends.
