The movies to be shown include: The Hunger Games (April 17), Dirty Dancing (April 24), La La Land (May 1) and John Wick (May 8).

First time images were released from the highly anticipated 2020 movie, Dune, directed by Denis Villeneuve. Adapted from same name book written by Frank Herbert, which is quite a big franchise among book readers, comes this science fiction flick. According to official synopsis, Dune is a mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, it tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence-a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential-only those who can conquer their fear will survive. It features an array of star such as Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Oscar Isaac, Jason Mamoa, Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem (definitely not playing a good guy), and music composed by Hans Zimmer. The movie was adapted by David Lynch in the past but was a box-office flop. Fans look forward to this upcoming installment highly and it is regarded as one of the most anticipated movie of 2020.
