Things are about to get wild with the natural world’s first ever competition show.

The Fifth Element

The Fifth Element

Summer elicits the desire to watch certain types of movies, and we can’t think of a better summertime movie night pick than this thrilling, hilarious, eye-popping, and utterly unique sci-fi classic from legendary director Luc Besson. In the 23rd century, a New York City cabbie, Korben Dallas (Bruce Willis), finds the fate of the world in his hands when Leeloo (a captivating Milla Jovovich) falls into his cab. As the embodiment of the fifth element, Leeloo needs to combine with the other four to keep the approaching Great Evil from destroying the world. Together with Father Vito Cornelius (Ian Holm) and zany broadcaster Ruby Rhod (the scene-stealing Chris Tucker), Dallas must race against time and the wicked industrialist Zorg (Gary Oldman) to save humanity. Do not miss this one.
