Um Dia fui ao Cinema: Predestination [Trailer] | Books, Photo, Video and Film | Scoop.it
Não seria preciso muito para nos fazer colocar este Predestination na lista de filmes a ver (aliás, bastava o pequeno pormenor de ser baseado numa curta de Robert A. Heinlein) - mas para além disso tem viagens no tempo, o que faz com que isso fique mais que assegurado.
