Avengers: Age of Ultron by Joss Whedon, dir/wr (Marvel Studios 01 May 2015 / ) - Movie Description: When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth's Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to the Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for a global adventure.

Infini by Dir. Shane Abbess; Writers: Shane Abbess and Brian Cachia (Storm Vision Entertainment 08 May 2015 / ) - Having watched only the trailer at this point, it looks like a cross between Aliens and John Carpenter's The Thing, with maybe a bit of Hot Zone mixed in. The themes are dark, and so are the sets, and I've got a bad feeling about our protagonist's odds at the end of the movie.
