Synopsis: As a young man, Bruce Lee was a rebel who was always engaging in street fights with his buddies, Kong and Unicorn. Invincible as a street fighter, Bruce's romantic escapades are not as smooth and successful. He is head over heels in love with Mandy only to realize his mate Kong shares the same passion. Meanwhile, another girl Monique has a crush on him. Against his father's wishes, Bruce studies the Wing Chun martial arts style instead of Tai-chi and tastes his first "public" triumph by knocking out a Caucasian boxer at a tournament with his kung-fu skills. On the eve of his triumph, he learns that Kong has become a drug addict and decides to rumble the drug lord's den together with Unicorn. This renders him the target of both the triads and corrupted cops who want him in jail. To save his life, Lee's father has no choice but to send him off to San Francisco to pursue his studies. And the rest is history.

Synopsis: Oscar-winner Denzel Washington and "Star Trek's" Chris Pine teams with action maestro Tony Scott in this non-stop thriller. A massive unmanned locomotive, nicknamed "The Beast" and loaded with toxic cargo, roars through the countryside, vaporizing anything put in front of it. A veteran engineer (Washington) and a young conductor (Pine), aboard another train in the runaway's path, devise an incredible plan to try and stop it - and prevent certain disaster in a heavily populated area.
Synopsis: "Death Place" contains four stories pulled straight from Thailand's most gruesome headlines bearing the titles - "Flame", "Imprison", "Revenge" and "Haunting Motel". "Flame" tells of a regretful boy who is haunted by a ghost after surviving a nightclub fire that killed his girlfriend. In "Imprison", a prisoner questions his own sanity after witnessing his cell-mate hang himself. In "Revenge", a deaf-mute drug dealer murders a woman thief in his apartment, and commits the mistake of stashing her corpse in his apartment building's water duct. Finally, in the comic "Haunting Motel", an aging stripper-cum-prostitute, a gay guy, and his straight friend end up in a hotel owned by a crazy old lady and haunted by a lady-killer.
