Set in the 1930s, Woody Allen’s romance Café Society follows Bronx-born Bobby Dorfman (Jesse Eisenberg) to Hollywood, where he falls in love, and back to New York with his colorful Bronx family, where he is swept up in the vibrant world of high society nightclub life.
Emma Roberts (TV’s “Scream Queens”) and Dave Franco (Now You See Me franchise) star in Nerve. The film will be released on Digital HD on October 11 and on Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital HD), DVD (plus Digital) and On Demand October 25 from Lionsgate.
Directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman (Catfish) with a screenplay by Jessica Sharzer (TV’s “American Horror Story”), Nerve captures the phenomenon of today’s social media climate where thousands of anonymous voices can determine the future of a few individuals. The film also features cameos from social media sensations The Fat Jewish, Arielle Vandenberg and Casey Neistat.
Industrious high school senior Vee (Emma Roberts) is tired of living life on the sidelines. Pressured by friends to join the popular online game Nerve, Vee teams up with a sly and charming competitor (Dave Franco) for just one dare in what seems like harmless fun. But as Vee is caught up in the thrill of the adrenaline-fueled competition, the game takes a sinister turn with increasingly dangerous acts, leading Vee into a high-stakes finale that will determine her entire future.
