The High Note – Maggie (Dakota Johnson) is the personal assistant of singing superstar Grace Davis (Tracee Ellis Ross), but she dreams of producing music one day. When Maggie meets talented singer David Cliff (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) by chance, she convinces him she’s a producer. She gets him into the recording studio, then lands him a prestigious gig, but her efforts land her in hot water with Grace. Available on DVD, Blu-ray, VOD and Digital.

Watch our interview with The High Note director Nisha Ganatra below:

Primal – When Frank Walsh (Nicolas Cage), a hunter and collector of rare and exotic animals, bags a priceless white jaguar for a zoo, he figures it’ll be smooth sailing to a big payday. But the ship bearing Frank’s precious cargo also has a political assassin being extradited to the U.S. in the cargo hold. After the assassin breaks free and then frees the jaguar, Frank stalks the ship’s corridors in pursuit of his prey. Available on DVD, Blu-ray, VOD and Digital.

Archive – The year is 2038 and George Almore (Theo James) is stationed deep in a snow-covered forest in Japan. He is near a breakthrough on a research project, as he works on a true human-equivalent android. His bosses don’t know it, but George has an ulterior motive for his work that must remain hidden. The prototypes are his key to reuniting with his dead wife. When his prototypes escape, he has to get them back at any cost. Available on DVD, VOD and Digital.

How to Build a Girl – Johanna (Beanie Feldstein) is a bright, quirky, 16-year-old who uses her colorful imagination to regularly escape her humdrum life and live out her creative fantasies. She submits an off-beat music review to a group of indie rock critics at a weekly magazine. Johanna climbs to the top of the ’90s rock music scene by reinventing herself as Dolly Wilde — a venerable, impossible-to-please music critic. It isn’t long before the rapid pace at which Johanna’s life is changing becomes overwhelming and she runs face-first into a devastatingly real, existential crisis. Available on DVD, Blu-ray, VOD and Digital.

Valley of the Gods – A look at the contrast between abundance and poverty through three separate storylines, featuring newly divorced writer John Ecas (Josh Hartnett), eccentric trillionaire Wes Tauros (John Malkovich), and a struggling Navajo community. As John writes Tauros’ biography, he discovers the man is set on mining the Navajos’ sacred lands for uranium for his own benefit. Available on Blu-ray, DVD, VOD and Digital.

Black Water: Abyss – Adventure-loving couple Eric and Jennifer convince their friends, Yolanda and Viktor, to explore a remote, uncharted cave system in the forests of Northern Australia. With a tropical storm approaching, they descend into the mouth of the cave, knowing they’ll be safe underground. But when the caves start to flood, tensions rise as oxygen levels fall and the group find themselves lost, disoriented, and trapped with dangerous and hungry crocodiles. Available on VOD and Digital.
