Risk taker. Rule breaker. Game changer. Ray Kroc was a struggling salesman from Illinois when he met Mac and Dick McDonald, who were running a burger operation in 1950s Southern California. Kroc was impressed by the brothers’ speedy system of making the food, and saw franchise potential. Always a schemer, Kroc maneuvered himself into a position to pull the company out from under the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire.
Run. The members of the crew of the colony ship, Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discover what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape. 18 May: GUYS’ NIGHT. No ladies allowed!
Fast and furry. The pampered life of Ozzy, a lovable beagle, is turned upside-down when his family leaves him in what seems to be the best canine spa, Blue Creek, before going on a long vacation. But the place’s perfect appearance turns out to be a façade concocted by its villainous owner, Mr. Robbins. Ozzy soon discovers that Blue Creek is a jail for dogs, inhabited mainly by tough street mongrels and where it’s a case of survival of the fittest. Ozzy will now have to avoid danger, find strength where he didn’t think he had any and learn to rely on Chester, Fronky and Doc, his new friends who will accompany him on his adventure as he tries to get back home safe and sound.
