1. PARKER: Jason Statham stars as the title character in this screen version of the character created by Donald Westlake for the best-selling series of novels. Parker is a bad guy – he’s a thief, but he has principles – he doesn’t steal from the poor and he doesn’t hurt innocent people. When the crew with which he works on a major heist turns on him and leaves him for dead, they are no longer categorized as “innocent people,” and it’s payback time as Parker, now with a new identity, comes after them.

Years after the original events of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, a young woman named Heather (Alexandra Daddario) learns that she has inherited some property in Texas from her grandmother.
