Synopsis

Trio of superhero adventures based on characters from the Marvel comic books. In 'Fantastic 4' (2005), the lifelong dream of inventor, astronaut and scientist Dr. Reed Richards (Ioan Gruffudd) is close to being realised. He is spearheading a trip to outer space, to the center of a cosmic storm. There he hopes to unlock the secrets of the human genetic codes for the benefit of all humanity. Reed accepts a financing deal with his old college rival, Victor Von Doom (Julian McMahon), now a billionaire industrialist. Reed's crew for the mission includes his best friend, astronaut Ben Grimm (Michael Chiklis); Sue Storm (Jessica Alba), Von Doom's director of genetic research and Reed's ex-girlfriend; and Sue's hot-headed younger brother, pilot Johnny Storm (Chris Evans). In space, the team is unexpectedly exposed to a cosmic storm. Back on earth they discover the exposure they suffered in the storm has fundamentally altered their DNA and given them each an exciting super power. 'Elektra' (2005) is a martial arts action film directed by Rob Bowman. Jennifer Garner plays Elektra Natchios, a hired assassin who is reunited with her old sensei, Stick (Terence Stamp). When she is given an assignment to kill Mark Miller (Goran Visnjic) and his daughter, Abby (Kristin Prout), her conscience gets the best of her and she decides to protect them instead. It's up to the Hand's top assassins to track her down and finish the job. In 'Daredevil' (2003), Matt Murdock (Ben Affleck) was blinded by a spillage of toxic waste when he was a boy. However, with the loss of his sight, Matt's other senses have all developed to an incredible degree, allowing him to navigate the city with pinpoint accuracy. Now he works by day as a lawyer, and by night he becomes the Daredevil when he uses his supersenses to continue his fight against underworld supervillain Kingpin (Michael Clarke Duncan).
