A triple bill of Hollywood releases. In 'Deep Blue Sea' off the coast of Mexico, Dr Susan McAlester's (Saffron Burrows) team of scientists are working on a cure for Alzheimer's disease by injecting degenerate human brain cells into mako sharks. The three sharks selected grow to over forty feet in length, and begin to demonstrate signs of intelligent behaviour. When pharmaceuticals' president Russell Franklin (Samuel L. Jackson) arrives with funding in mind, one of the sharks attacks scientist Jim Whitlock, biting off his arm. However, the helicopter taking Whitlock to surgery crashes into the research centre and disables the protective security systems which keeps the killer sharks at bay... 'Space Cowboys' stars Clint Eastwood, Tommy Lee Jones, Donald Sutherland and James Garner as four test pilots who in 1958 were about to become the first men in space. But internal problems prevented that from happening and they were all disbanded. Four decades later the group are re-formed when an old Russian satellite suffers system failure, the results of which could be catastrophic if not sorted out soon. The only system that can stop the satellite from causing mass destruction is the old navigation system designed by Eastwood and his team. So the ageing team are sent into space in the shuttle on a mission to fix the satellite. Whilst in 'Sphere' a mysterious deadly force has been discovered beneath the surface of the Pacific. Psychologist Dr. Norman Goodman (Dustin Hoffman) is sent by the government to investigate with a specialist team, including Beth Halperin (Sharon Stone), a biochemist, and Harry Adams (Samuel L. Jackson), a sceptical mathematician. But shortly after their mission begins, they lose contact with the surface and begin to experience a series of strange phenomena.
