Jack is back and he's ready to kick some more ass to save the world! Fox has released an exciting new trailer for his next great adventure in 24: Live Another Day, and it looks like it's going to be an incredible series. You can't go wrong with 12 episodes of Kiefer Sutherland being a badass.
Set and shot in London, the suspenseful event series once again will follow the exploits of heroic agent Jack Bauer. Four years ago, Jack was a fugitive from justice. Now an exile, he nevertheless is willing to risk his life and freedom to avert yet another global disaster. Tracking Jack are CIA head Steve Harris (Benjamin Bratt); CIA agent Kate Morgan (Yvonne Strahovski), who is both resourceful and ruthless; Jordan Reed (Giles Matthey), a smart and sophisticated CIA computer tech; and Erik Ritter (Gbenga Akinnagbe), a sharp, strong and arrogant field operative.

After dropping a selection of images earlier in the week [see here], Fox has now given us our first look at the upcoming event series 24: Live Another Day, which sees Kiefer Sutherland's Jack Bauer trying to prevent an attempted assassination of the U.S. president in London - something that could trigger a world war. Check it out after the official series synopsis....
Four years after the events in the series finale, Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) is now an exile and is being hunted by a CIA agent. Nevertheless, he is willing to risk his life and freedom to avert yet another global disaster. He attempts to thwart an unthinkable terrorist attack in London that could change the world forever.

There’s no doubt that 24 was such a unique concept and show and although they’ve tweaked it to 12-episodes for Jack Bauer’s comeback in 24: Live Another Day, there’s still a lot of excitement around the return of Kiefer Sutherland’s agent.
This first full trailer, after the previous teaser, gives us basically what we’d expect but also – a little of what we want! This time he’s been moved to London and Jack’s here to head off a massive terrorist attack but, of course, he’s also being hunted down by American forces dispatched by President James Heller (William Devane).
It’s usual kind of day isn’t it? There’s also an impressive co-starring cast that includes Stephen Fry, John Boyega, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Yvonne Strahovski, Benjamin Bratt, Giles Matthey, Tate Donovan, Kim Raver, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Michael Wincott and Judy Davis. »

Touching down on UK shores a full year after blasting off (in muted fashion) from Us cinemas, this innocuous interstellar animation plays to the younger end of the market with undemanding (and largely unoriginal) thrills and spills. When his wantonly heroic brother Scorch Supernova is stranded on "the Dark Planet", it's left to nerdy sibling Gary to boldly go from Baab to Earth, winding up a prisoner of Area 51, wherein enslaved aliens are forced to work on new-fangled inventions such as the internet, the mobile phone, and (more recently) an exterminating death ray.
With Stephen Fry providing "additional writing" and Ricky Gervais as the voice of the on-board computer, you'd expect wry humour and cine-literate pop-culture references aplenty, yet beyond a few nostalgic nods to It Came from Outer Space and arcane public information films, »

Jack is back! We saw some intriguing teasers during this year’s Super Bowl and a new batch of stills just a few days ago, but Fox have now released a trailer with actual footage from 24: Live Another Day. The majority of the series was shot in London, and it quickly becomes clear that the city and its landmarks will form an important backdrop to proceedings.
Branded a psychopath and traitor, it’s obvious that Jack is still on the run in this follow-up to season eight’s cliffhanger, while his very ominous, “There’s no going for me” line and the that fact he’s trying to avert a world war serve as proof that this season of 24 may just have the highest stakes yet for the former CTU Agent.

The series also stars Giles Matthey, Yvonne Strahovski as Kate Morgan, Kim Raver as Audrey Raines, Benjamin Bratt as Steve Harris, and Mary Lynn Rajskub as Chloe.

A sharp and at times genuinely funny script diverts attention from the ordinary visuals of this animated alien escapade
This zippy, better-than-it-looks multiplex filler counts as the first digimation to expose its audience of snacking preteens to images of Stalin and Fidel Castro, part of an early slideshow illustrating how men with facial hair have traditionally assumed control of our planet. It concludes with a shot of Zz Top.
Visually, little else distinguishes this tale of Blu-Tacky aliens attempting to rescue one of their own from Area 51, here a holding bay for ETs whose out-of-this-world inventions (smartphones, social networking) have been reappropriated by puny Earthlings. Its secret weapon is a satirically inclined script, reworked by Stephen Fry among others, that disrupts the general factory-line vibe with regular funny lines. I liked one unexpectedly sharp "Don't ask, don't tell" gag, and the moment when our hero's wife pulls on her anti-gravity boots to join the mission, »

John Travolta says “Let It Go,” an inside look at PrEP, Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade compromise fails
Stephen Fry is set to host a musical gay wedding for Channel 4 to celebrate the beginning of marriage equality. The couple, Benjamin Till and Nathan Taylor are writing the music for the special themselves.
Can you guess the heavy metal crotch? The 1980s MTV really should have been in high definition.
Gawker has a fascinating (and long) story about PrEP from an author that tried it for a while, based on the behavior that he said was “always safe” with some slipups. It’s a great piece on condoms vs. PrEP, Truvada shaming, effectiveness, and the fact that if condoms were actually working, we wouldn’t be looking for things like PrEP with Truvada. The poor author is being slut shamed in the comments brutally for having an honest discussion. »

Stephen Fry is set to narrate a musical broadcast of one of the UK's first same-sex weddings since the equal marriage bill passed.
Called Our Gay Wedding: The Musical, the 60-minute television special will be broadcast by Channel 4.
The musical will reportedly feature guest stars and showbiz legends, accompanied by Fry's commentary and introductions.
John Hay, commissioning editor for arts at Channel 4, said of the planned special: "We are proud to be marking a huge milestone for gay rights - a cause that has long been close to Channel 4's heart."
Fry, a longtime supporter of equal marriage, recently urged David Cameron to back the campaign against Russia's homophobic policies. »

The movie mogul on why he loves the Brits, making films for his children and how giving up M&Ms made him a better person
How are you and what are you doing?
I'm in New York City, it's snowing, freezing cold and for some unfathomable reason, I'm about to walk down the street to my office. Other than that, I'm fabulous.
Your new film, Escape from Planet Earth, is the Weinstein Company's first animation, right?
The first one we've made from scratch, yeah. Funnily enough, it's about two brothers who squabble all the time. I wouldn't know anything about that, of course [Harvey runs the Weinstein Company with his brother Bob]. One of the brothers is a larger-than-life alien hero who gets sent to Area 51, where he's imprisoned, so the quieter brother has to go and rescue him. Every weekend, my four daughters insist I drive them to the movie theatre and watch the latest animated film. So »

Thanks to EW we have our first official photo from the highly anticipated return of Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer in 24: Live Another Day. The photo also features his trusty partner, Chloe, played by Mary Lynn Rajskub, and it looks like they are running away from some kind of fire or explosion, which is typical for these two. Rajskkub offers up a little bit of information on her character's change and style, saying that she joined some WikiLeaks-type organization in London.
''I'm more hardened. I've seen more of the world. When you pick up with me, I've completely turned against the government. It's a very dark, very damaged look, It's a bit of an Fu to the world.''
It kind of makes sense that she would go down that road after all of the shit she's been through.

The Us president revealed his appreciation of the actor, writer and director, after he died on Monday (February 24) at the age of 69.
Obama noted Ramis's Chicago roots, the same city that helped launch the president's career.
"Michelle and I were saddened to hear of the passing of Harold Ramis, one of America's greatest satirists, and like so many other comedic geniuses, a proud product of Chicago's Second City," Obama said in a statement.
"When we watched his movies - from Animal House and Caddyshack to Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day - we didn't just laugh until it hurt. We questioned authority. We identified with the outsider. We rooted for the underdog."
He added: "And through it all, we never lost our faith in happy endings. Our thoughts and prayers are with Harold's wife, »
