Synopsis

Triple set of sci-fi classics. In 'Ultraviolet' (2006), a vampire-like disease called hemophagia creates a subculture of genetically-modified humans. These humans have enhanced speed, incredible stamina and acute intelligence. As they are set apart from 'normal, healthy' humans, the world is pushed to the brink of worldwide civil war aimed at the destruction of the diseased population. In the middle of this crossfire is an infected woman, Ultraviolet (Milla Jovovich), who finds herself protecting a nine-year-old boy who has been marked for death by the human government as he is believed to be a threat to humans. 'Serenity' (2005), the epic sci-fi adventure from writer-director Joss Whedon, is based on his short-lived television series 'Firefly'. 500 years in the future, after a galactic civil war has united all the space colonies under the repressive Alliance, former rebel soldier Malcolm Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) captains the Firefly class cargo ship 'Serenity', taking on odd jobs and scoring heists where he can to keep his ship and his crew in the air, all the while trying to avoid the attentions of the authorities. When he picks up Simon Tam (Sean Maher) and his disturbed sister River (Summer Glau), Mal ends up with more trouble than he could have bargained for. On the run from the Alliance, River has been the subject of horrific government experiments to develope her latent psychic powers. Determined to get her back, the Alliance dispatches ruthless assassin The Operative (Chiwetel Ejiofor), and Mal and his crew find themselves hunted throughout the galaxy. But when they discover an even darker secret the Alliance would like to keep hidden, they finally have their chance to hit back. In 'Resident Evil: Apocalypse' (2004), Milla Jovovich reprises her role as Alice, who now finds herself stuck in the contaminated Raccoon City after the deadly re-opening of the Hive. The infamous Umbrella Corporation has banned anyone from leaving in case of possible infection with the outside world. Along with other survivors Jill Valentine (Sienna Guillory) and Carlos Oliviera (Oded Fehr), Alice must fight for her survival - and do all she can to escape the nightmare necropolis. Together, the small band of survivors seeks out eminent scientist Dr Charles Ashford (Jared Harris), the only man with the knowledge to help them out of their awful entrapment - but they soon discover that Ashford's co-operation comes at a heavy price.
