Folgen Sie der spannenden Geschichte der X-MEN, einer Gruppe von Menschen mit genetischen Mutationen, die ihnen außergewöhnliche Fähigkeiten verleihen. In einem ständigen Kampf um Akzeptanz in der Gesellschaft müssen die X-MEN lernen, ihre Kräfte einzusetzen, um diejenigen zu bekämpfen, die auf die Weltherrschaft aus sind. Begleite Professor X, Storm, Jean Grey, Cyclops und Wolverine, während sie versuchen, sich selbst und die Welt vor Magneto, Sentinels und Apocalypse zu retten, einem mächtigen Mutanten, dessen rachsüchtiger Zorn den Planeten bedroht. Enthält Special Features Material X-Men Rogue (Anna Paquin) ist eigentlich nur ein normaler Teenager. Doch wenn sie andere Menschen berührt, absorbiert sie deren Kräfte und bringt sie damit in Lebensgefahr. Sie ist ein Mutant. Wie ihr ergeht es vielen. Jeder hat eine besondere Gabe. Einige wie die Gruppe um Anführer Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart) setzen die Kräfte zum Wohl der Menschheit ein, andere wollen sie wie Unterwelt-Chef Magneto (Ian McKellen) ausrotten. Die Erdlinge hassen sowieso alle Mutanten. Besonders Senator Kelly (Bruce Davidson) treibt eine Verfolgung der Mutanten voran – bis er von ihnen entführt wird. X-Men 2 Mit X-Men trug Bryan Singer anno 2000 dazu bei, den Boom an adaptierten Helden-Comics zu begründen. Die Mutanten waren dabei für ihn keine strahlenden Supermenschen, sondern Diskriminierte und Verfolgte im eigenen Land, fehlbar und auch mal verängstigt. In Teil 2 hat sich daran nichts geändert, die Menschen beäugen weiterhin misstrauisch ihre mit außergewöhnlichen Kräften ausgestatteten Mitbürger. Die Anti-Mutanten-Bewegung wird nach dem Angriff eines nicht zu identifizierenden Gegners gestärkt. Ihnen steht William Stryker (Brian Cox) vor, ein ehemaliger Armeebefehlshaber. Magneto (Ian McKellen) bietet den X-Men um den philanthropischen Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart) an, gemeinsam gegen Stryker vorzugehen. Dem X-Men-Team steht eine gefährliche Mission bevor, die das Schicksal aller Mutanten besiegeln könnte. Zumal der Friede zwischen den gegensätzlichen Gruppierungen innerhalb der Mutierten brüchig ist... X-Men: Der letzte Widerstand Die X-Men unter der bewährten Führung von Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) bekommen es mit der Evolution selbst zu tun. Ihre verstorbene Kollegin Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) wird als Dark Phoenix wieder geboren und ist nicht nur eine Gefahr für sich selbst, sondern auch für die anderen Mutanten und die menschliche Rasse. Als eine mögliche Heilung gefunden wird, mit der außerdem genetische Mutationen kontrolliert werden könnten, müssen sich die X-Men, zu denen auch Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) und Storm (Halle Berry) gehören, zur Schlacht rüsten - gegen die Brotherhood von Magneto (Ian McKellen) und das menschliche Militär. Denn die wollen mit dem Mittel dafür sorgen, dass Mutanten auch gegen ihren Willen der Mutationskräfte beraubt werden. Das können die X-Men nicht zulassen, weil die Integrität der Mutanten damit in Gefahr ist. X-Men: Erste Entscheidung Lange bevor sie zu erbitterten Feinden wurden, waren Charles „Professor X“ Xavier (James McAvoy) und Erik „Magneto“ Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender) enge Freunde. Mit ihren ungeheuren Mutanten-Kräften versuchen sie in den 1960ern, den Lauf einer Welt zu korrigieren, die im Angesicht der Kuba-Krise ins Chaos zu entgleisen droht. Zu diesem Zweck gründen sie eine geheime Privatschule für „begabte Jugendliche“ – denn sie wissen längst, dass sie nicht die einzigen Mutanten sind. Doch der behütet aufgewachsene Charles und der Holocaust-Überlebende Erik vertreten derart konträre Menschenbilder, dass es nur noch eine Frage der Zeit ist, bis ihre Allianz zerbricht und eine ganze Generation von Mutanten Partei ergreifen muss... X-Men: Zukunft ist Vergangenheit In der Zukunft stehen die Mutanten kurz vor dem Aussterben, weil sie von Killer-Robotern gejagt und getötet werden: den Sentinels. Aufgrund der Bedrohung arbeiten die einstigen Gegner Magneto (Ian McKellen) und Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) zusammen – ihr Plan sieht vor, den Terror durch die Sentinels gar nicht erst zuzulassen. Dazu schicken sie Wolverines (Hugh Jackman) Bewusstsein mit Hilfe von Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) in die Vergangenheit, da sich sein Geist von den Folgen einer solchen Zeitreise erholen kann. In der Vergangenheit soll Wolverine eine Tat Mystiques (Jennifer Lawrence) verhindern, die den Bau der Sentinels erst möglich machte; der Eingriff würde also die Zukunft im Sinne der Mutanten verändern. Doch dafür muss Wolverine erst ein Team aus Mutanten zusammenstellen – was sich als schwierig erweist. Der junge Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) etwa ist in einem miserablen psychischen Zustand… X-Men Apocalypse Die Welt hat sich verändert, Mutanten werden in der Gesellschaft nun weitestgehend akzeptiert. Doch ein legendärer Bösewicht schickt sich an, Menschen wie Mutanten zu unterjochen: der einst als Gott verehrte Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac), der älteste und mächtigste Mutant der Welt. Er ist unsterblich und unbesiegbar, weil er die Kräfte vieler unterschiedlicher Mutanten vereint – und er ist bei seinem Erwachen nach Tausenden von Jahren gar nicht glücklich darüber, wie sich die Welt entwickelt hat. Zur Verwirklichung seines Plans einer neuen Weltordnung bringt Apocalypse mächtige Mutanten unter seine Kontrolle: Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Psylocke (Olivia Munn), Storm (Alexandra Shipp) und Angel (Ben Hardy). Es ist an Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) und Prof. X (James McAvoy), ein Team junger Mutanten anzuführen, das sich Apocalypse in den Weg stellt… Wolverine: Weg des Kriegers Mutant Logan (Hugh Jackman), auch bekannt als Wolverine, wird unter zwielichtigen Umständen nach Japan gelockt, das er seit dem Zweiten Weltkrieg nicht mehr betreten hat. In einer Welt der Samurai und Yakuza findet er sich unerwartet auf der Flucht mit einer ebenso schönen wie mysteriösen Erbin wieder. Zum ersten Mal wird er mit der Aussicht auf Sterblichkeit konfrontiert, in einer Zeit, in der er an seine emotionalen und physischen Grenzen gelangt. Er ist nicht nur gezwungen, gegen seinen größten Erzfeind Silver Samurai (Will Yun Lee) anzutreten, sondern auch gegen die Schatten seiner eigenen Vergangenheit. Während er versucht, seinen Gegner trotz dessen tödlichen Samurai-Stahls zu besiegen, muss er gleichzeitig einen eigenen inneren Kampf gegen seine Existenz als Mutant ausfechten. Doch an jedem aussichtslos erscheinenden Problem wächst Wolverine und wird dadurch letztendlich stärker als jemals zuvor. X-Men Origins: Wolverine Der Film erzählt die Vorgeschichte Wolverines mit Augenmerk auf seine mysteriöse Vergangenheit, seine komplexe Beziehung zu Victor Creed (Liev Schreiber) und das ominöse Weapon X-Programm. Logan (Hugh Jackman) und sein älterer Bruder Victor Sabretooth Creed (Liev Schreiber) sind Teil einer Spezialeinheit unter der Leitung von Oberst William Stryker (Danny Huston), die nur aus Mutanten besteht. Bei einem Einsatz in einem abgelegenen Dorf kommt es zum Eklat: Weil die anderen Teammitglieder auch Unschuldige hinrichten, steigt Logan aus und setzt sich als Holzfäller in die kanadischen Rocky Mountains ab, wo er sich in die Lehrerin Kayla Silverfox (Lynn Collins) verliebt. Doch der Mutant bleibt nicht lange ungestört. Victor ist offensichtlich durchgedreht und hat sich in den Kopf gesetzt, Logan zu töten. Vorher aber bringt er Kayla um. Logan ist innerlich vollkommen zerstört und sinnt fortan auf Rache. Um Victor zu vernichten, lässt er sich von Stryker das außerirdische Metall Adamantium in Knochen und Krallen spritzten...

From Jennifer Donnelly, the critically acclaimed New York Times bestselling author of A Northern Light and Revolution, comes a mystery about dark secrets, dirty truths, and the lengths to which people will go for love and revenge. For fans of Elizabeth George and Libba Bray, These Shallow Graves is the story of how much a young woman is willing to risk and lose in order to find the truth.Jo Montfort is beautiful and rich, and soon-like all the girls in her class-she'll graduate from finishing school and be married off to a wealthy bachelor. Which is the last thing she wants. Jo dreams of becoming a writer-a newspaper reporter like the trailblazing Nellie Bly.Wild aspirations aside, Jo's life seems perfect until tragedy strikes: her father is found dead. Charles Montfort shot himself while cleaning his pistol. One of New York City's wealthiest men, he owned a newspaper and was a partner in a massive shipping firm, and Jo knows he was far too smart to clean a loaded gun.The more Jo hears about her father's death, the more something feels wrong. Suicide is the only logical explanation, and of course people have started talking, but Jo's father would never have resorted to that. And then she meets Eddie-a young, smart, infuriatingly handsome reporter at her father's newspaper-and it becomes all too clear how much she stands to lose if she keeps searching for the truth. But now it might be too late to stop.The past never stays buried forever.

'Oh God! All those months of not being able to write! Of not being allowed to write. Knowing I'd be shot if I were caught.' Nominated for both the Costa Award and shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal, Rose Under Fire tells the thrilling story of one young ATA pilot's unforgettable journey through World War Two.  Rose Justice is a young American ATA pilot, delivering planes and taxiing pilots for the RAF in the UK during the summer of 1944. A budding poet who feels most alive while flying, she discovers that not all battles are fought in the air. An unforgettable journey from innocence to experience from the author of the New York Times bestseller, Code Name Verity. From the exhilaration of being the youngest pilot in the British air transport auxiliary, to the aftermath of surviving the notorious Ravensbruck women's concentration camp, Rose's story is one of courage in the face of adversity. Elizabeth Wein is a leading voice in young adult historical fiction. Look out for her other books Code Name Verity and Black Dove, White Raven. Fans of The Book Thief and Carmen Reid's Cross My Heart will love this. Elizabeth Wein was born in New York, and grew up in England, Jamaica and Pennsylvania. She is married with two children and now lives in Perth, Scotland. Elizabeth is a member of the Ninety-Nines, the International Organization of Women Pilots.  She was awarded the Scottish Aero Club's Watson Cup for best student pilot in 2003 and it was her love of flying that partly inspired the idea for her bestselling, award-winning novel Code Name Verity.
