The film opens in select theaters on March 7th followed by a VOD release on March 13th. The the official synopsis for The Face of Love’ is as follows.
Five years after the death of her beloved husband Garrett (Ed Harris), Nikki (Annette Bening) meets a man who seems his exact duplicate.

Romance blossoms between Nikki and this alluring doppelgänger, but she can’t bring herself to tell him the truth about what drew her to him. So she hides her photos and prevents him from meeting friends and family. Still, she can’t resist taking him to all the old haunts. It isn’t a question of if the truth will come out, but when. Arie Posin directs this emotionally thorny drama about how we cope with loss, live in the moment and ultimately move forward.
Tom Cruise has revealed on his Twitter account this new image from the upcoming sci-fi action adventure ‘Edge of Tomorrow.’ Set for release on June 6th, the cast for ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ includes Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton, Kick Gurry, Dragomir Mrsic, Jeremy Piven, Charlotte Riley, Jonas Armstrong, and Franz Drameh. Liman directs the film from a screenplay by Dante W. Harper, Jez Butterworth, John-Henry Butterworth and Christopher McQuarrie, based on the acclaimed novel ‘All You Need is Kill’ by Hiroshi Sakurazaka.
The action of ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to little more than a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop—forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.
Following yesterday’s surprise announcement that Michael Douglas will play Hank Pym in the Edgar Wright and Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’ feature film, the two-time Academy Award winner has opened up to Reuters about what drew him to the project: “I’ve been dying to do a Marvel picture for so long. The script is really fun, the director is really good. Dylan (the actor’s 13-year-old son) will love it. He’ll have a picture he can see.”
And hot on the heels of his Golden Globe win for Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Behind the Candelabra,’ Michael Douglas also said that he wants to surprise the studios and audiences alike with ‘Ant-Man’: “Sometimes – like (when) they didn’t see you for Liberace - you’ve got to shake them up a little bit and have some fun.”
With Disney and Marvel having three mystery projects set for May 6th, 2016, July 8th, 2016 and May 5th, 2017, fans have long speculated that one of these “Phase 3″ films will focus on Doctor Strange. While the three dates could be for a sequel for an ongoing property – or even a solo movie for Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk, the likes of Doctor Strange, The Inhumans and Black Panther have previously been rumored to be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Asked last year about a Doctor Strange movie featuring in “Phase 3″, Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige replied, “‘Doctor Strange,’ which I’ve been talking about for years, is definitely one of them,” he confirmed. “He’s a great, original character, and he checks the box off this criteria that I have: he’s totally different from anything else we have, just like ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’ He’s totally different from anything we’ve done before, as is ‘Ant-Man,’ which keeps us excited.”
