Hey Insiders,

Welcome back to your fortnightly look at what’s new in your local Network store, and boy, do we have some entertainment lined up for you over the next couple of weeks! Experienced movie watchers know that there’s no setting with as much potential for love and laughs as a wedding, which is why we’re so excited that Made of Honour is hitting our shelves. Girls, it stars Patrick Dempsey... do we need to say more?

Don’t worry guys, we have plenty of films for you, too. Every guy secretly wants to be as cool as Jason Statham, who swings his big sword around like nobody’s business in In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale. (His sword is almost as long as the film title!) Full of medieval-style action, and some impressive special effects, there’s a lot to like about this no-holds-barred adventure.

Younger viewers don’t miss out either, as Jodie Foster returns to her kids’ film roots (remember the original Freaky Friday) in Nim’s Island. Also starring Abigail “Little Miss Sunshine” Breslin and Gerard “THIS IS SPARTA!” Butler, we think every family is going to enjoy a visit to this particular island. And the always rolling-on-the-floor-hilarious Steve Carell and Jim Carrey team up to voice the adorable Horton Hears a Who!

Oh, but this is just the very peak of the movie mountain that we have for you. Films like Gone Baby Gone, 10,000 BC, Drillbit Taylor, How She Move and Archangel are also on our shelves, and all of them will give you a great night in front of the telly. In fact, if we managed to fit any more great movies into your local Network store, the walls would burst.

Prevent any wall-bursting catastrophes by going to your Network store, and grabbing a flick today.

See you in-store.

In The Name Of The King
An unspeakably evil army rampages across what was an idyllic, peaceful world, destroying everything in its path, looking to conquer the mighty castle of Ehb and vanquish the king himself! Amidst this backdrop of war in the Kingdom of Ehb, between the evil Gallian (Ray Liotta) and the ruling king Konreid (Burt Reynolds), a once-simple family man named Farmer (Jason Statham) sets out to find his kidnapped wife, Solana.
Nim's Island
Anything can happen on Nim's Island, a magical place ruled by a young girl's imagination. It is an existence that mirrors that of her favourite literary character, Alex Rover - the world's greatest adventurer. But Alexandra, the author of the Rover books, leads a reclusive life in the big city. When Nim's father goes missing from their island, a twist of fate brings her together with Alexandra. Now they must draw courage from their fictional hero, Alex Rover, and find strength in one another to conquer Nim's Island.
Horton Hears A Who
An imaginative elephant named Horton (Carrey) hears a faint cry for help coming from a tiny speck of dust floating through the air. Although Horton doesn't know it yet, that speck houses an entire city named Who-ville, inhabited by the microscopic Whos, led by the Mayor (Carell). Despite being ridiculed and threatened by his neighbours who think he has lost his mind, Horton is determined to save the particle because "a person's a person no matter how small."
Goal 2: Living The Dream
This sequel to 2006's Goal! The Dream Begins finds Santiago Munez established as a soccer success in Newcastle. But he soon jumps at the chance to play for Real Madrid with icons such as David Beckham. However, Santiago discovers that money and fame don't necessarily bring happiness as he loses himself and his relationship with Roz (Anna Friel).
When veteran football player Dodge Connolly (George Clooney) recruits war hero Carter “The Bullet” Rutherford, to aid the failing fortunes of his team, he gets far more than he bargains for. With Carter’s arrival comes the smart and sassy newspaper journalist Lexie Littleton (Renée Zellweger), who is tasked by her editor to uncover the dirt on Carter and the truth behind his war hero status!
Smart People
Professor Lawrence Wetherhold might be an intellectual giant, but when it comes to solving the conundrums of love and family, he’s as downright flummoxed as the next guy. He has alienated his son and turned his teenage daughter into an acid-tongued, friendless over-achiever. After a hit to the head he falls for doctor and former student, Janet. At the same time his freeloading, preposterously ne’er do well adopted brother unexpectedly shows up at his door, low on cash and needing a place to stay. The circumstances cause Lawrence to stir from his deep freeze.

Made of Honour (M)

Tom (Patrick Dempsey) and Hannah (Michelle Monaghan), platonic friends since college, have never entertained the prospect of romance - he's a womaniser who never wanted to commit; she wants marriage but has never found the right man. Just as he begins to think he's ready to settle, she gets engaged to a handsome Scotsman -- and asks her longtime male pal to be her "maid" of honour. He agrees, but only so he can sabotage the wedding and woo her before it's too late.
The Black Balloon (M)

When Thomas (Rhys Wakefield) and his family move to a new home and he has to start at a new school, all he wants is to fit in. His pregnant mother (Toni Collette) has to take things easy and Thomas's father Simon (Erik Thomson) puts him in charge of his autistic brother Charlie (Luke Ford). Thomas, with the help of his girlfriend Jackie (Gemma Ward), faces his biggest challenge yet. Charlie's unusual antics take Thomas on an emotional journey that causes his pent-up frustrations about his brother to pour out in a story that is funny, confronting and ultimately heart-warming.
Purple Violets (M)

Purple Violets is a sparkling romantic comedy about four friends from college ready for change. Patti Peterson (Selma Blair) is a promising writer, but her marriage and conventional job keep her from her dream. Brian Cahill (Patrick Wilson) is a successful crime novelist. Kate (Debra Messing) is Patti's best friend since college. She's a tough-talking schoolteacher who plays therapist to all Patti's problems, while she's got a few of her own. Despite Brian Cahill's gorgeous Tribeca loft and perfect house in the Hamptons, he longs to write works of greater literary value. Murphy (Ed Burns), his lawyer and best friend from college still carries a flame for his former girlfriend Kate, even though their relationship ended badly years ago.
Rome Season 2 (R18+)

In this British costume drama, the turbulent transition from Roman republic to autocratic empire, which changed world history trough civil war and wars of conquest, is sketched both from the aristocratic viewpoint of Julius Caesar, his family, his adopted successor Octavian Augustus, and their political allies and adversaries, and from the politically naive viewpoint of a few ordinary Romans, notably the soldiers Lucius Vorenus and Titus Pullo and their families.
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (M)

The Force Unleashed is an epic action game set in the famous Star Wars universe. You'll encounter some familiar characters, and some new faces during your adventure, but don't think that this is a Role Playing Game, this is action gaming all the way. Take control of space ships, ground craft and some incredible weaponry. And if that weren't enough, you can train your Force abilities to maximum effect.
