Cinemax brought "Strike Back: Origins" to a close Friday (Nov. 29). This is actually the first season of "Strike Back" from the U.K. -- it aired there in 2010 and never aired in the U.S. The U.S. viewers had to jump in with Season 2, subtitled "Project Dawn."
This season has been airing under the name "Origins," acting as a kind of prequel for the U.S. viewers -- and featuring Andrew Lincoln as Hugh Collinson while he simultaneously appears on AMC's "The Walking Dead."
In the season finale, John Porter (Richard Armitage) and Gerald Baxter (Ewen Bremner) escape from the compound and return to Afghanistan. Baxter is killed by a Taliban soldier, Collinson (Lincoln) is confronted by Leyla about how it was his bullet who shot Steve Andrews (who is now dead), in addition to Mike Reilly and Keith Finn. Leyla uses it to force Collinson to save Porter »
Fireworks is a charming indie comedy about a teenage girl, Kat, who runs away from home to find her uncle Gillies, who she has secretly discovered is her real dad. But Gillies, played by the fantastic Ewen Bremner, turns out to have bipolar disorder. Without fully understanding this, Kat hatches a plan for them to make a homemade firework, with Gillies' medication as the essential ingredient.
The Fireworks production team are now looking for a talented, bold, headstrong young woman to play the lead role of Kat.
Our bright new star doesn’t need any acting experience, but she does need to be bold, funny and brave. If that sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you.
The ideal candidate will be a young-looking sixteen year old with a London accent, but we are prepared to be blown away by any fresh new star who can play a 13-14 year old London girl. »

Snowpiercer could arrive in an uncut version.
Director Bong Joon-ho has said that he "has faith" that Harvey Weinstein will abandon his plans for a severe edit of the Korean film, reports The Playlist.
"I stayed in New York for two weeks before coming here to Mar del Plata, mostly because of this matter, and the good news is that after all the speculation and comments about that 20-minute cut, and considering the original version that was released in Korea and France also will be released in Japan and Hong Kong, we have been talking a lot about keeping the original cut for the Us release, so what I can say is... have faith," the director said at the Mar del Plata Film Festival this week.

Director of the much delayed Snowpiercer, Bong Joon Ho, has faith that Us audiences will see his original cut, as opposed to the distributor’s cut at the hands of Harvey Weinstein. News broke months ago about 20 minutes being cut from the Us release, and a few weeks back it was announced that the Director’s cut was receiving better scores from test audiences. At the Mal del Plata Film Festival, Bong was able to discuss certain aspects of the upcoming release, and some future project ideas:
I stayed in New York for two weeks before coming here to Mar del Plata, mostly because of this matter.

Yet another new international poster for Bong Joon-ho's 'Snowpiercer' has arrived. This rather disappointing Asian effort features the worst of all poster styles, the floating heads. The heads in question of stars Chris Evans ('Avengers Assemble'), Tilda Swinton ('Vanilla Sky'), Jamie Bell ('King Kong'), Song Kangho ('Thirst') and Ko Asung ('The Host'). The adaptation is still yet to get an official Us and/or UK release but no doubt this will all be sorted out very soon. 'Snowpiercer' is based on the French graphic novel 'Le Transperceneige' by Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette. The feature also stars John Hurt ('Dr Who'), Ewen Bremner ('Trainspotting') and the Oscar winning Octavia Spencer ('The Help'). Check the poster below. »
Over the past several months, there's been controversy regarding the North American cut of Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer. The post-apocalyptic action-drama has been a hit in his native South Korea, but The Weinstein Company wants to remove 20-minutes to make the movie more palatable to U.S. audiences. Bong's response has ranged from restrained to furious regarding the cuts, but either way, there's definitely some ongoing conflict behind-the-scenes. We originally reported that the cuts Harvey Weinstein wanted would play up the action and add opening and closing voiceovers. Bong has now clarified the nature of the cuts, and why his version may have the edge. Hit the jump for more. Snowpiercer stars Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Jamie Bell, Ed Harris, Alison Pill, Ewen Bremner, Octavia Spencer, Kang-ho Song, and Ko Asung. In an interview with Twitch, Bong explained where he and The Weinstein Company were at in the editing »

Bong Joon Ho’s Snowpiercer should have hit sometime this year. But like so many trains, it’s going to arrive late. The film, which is Bong’s English language debut, arrived on time in Bong’s native South Korea back in August. Unfortunately, the Weinstein’s got their hands on it and the film is facing a number of cuts. The film is jam packed with massive names, all queuing up to work with Bong, whose previous projects Memories Of Murder, The Host, and Mother, are all modern classics. The film, based on a French graphic novel, sees a train with the last of humanity travel through a new ice-age.

Snowpiercer has debuted a new trailer.
The French trailer for Bong Joon-ho's sci-fi film has revealed a host of new footage.
The film centres around Curtis (Evans), a man who leads an uprising against the tyrannical rule of Swinton's Mason.
Due to the controversy surrounding the Us cut of the movie, it is yet to set a debut in the UK or North America.
Based on French graphic novel Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette the arrival of Bong Joon-ho's upcoming 'Snowpiercer' is still yet to be confirmed. However, we can still enjoy the many expectant assets leading up to its eventual release. The adaptation has scored some new stills featuring some of the main cast which you can see below. Chris Evans ('Avengers Assemble'), John Hurt ('Dr Who'), Tilda Swinton ('Vanilla Sky'), Jamie Bell ('King Kong'), Ewen Bremner ('Trainspotting'), Octavia Spencer ('The Help'), Song Kangho ('Thirst') and Ko Asung ('The Host') make up the impressive lineup. Check out the images below. »
The Weinstein Company has left us twiddling our thumbs in regards to Bong Joon Ho’s English language debut, Snowpiercer. With news of 20 minutes being cut from the film, my excitement levels have dropped considerably. Not only that, but without a Us or UK release date even announced, it’s a film that is going to be easier to import from international territories, rather than waiting for it on the big screen.
This latest trailer is for the French release, and since the film is based on a French graphic novel, we can but hope it is as big a hit there as it was in Bong’s homeland of South Korea. The trailer is much clearer in terms of plot, and gives a greater sense of what it is the passengers from the tail are fighting for.
Snowpiercer still doesn’t have a release date for UK or Us cinemas. »

The fourth and final international trailer for Snowpiercer has arrived, which finds a perpetual motion train plowing through the frozen tundra of a desolated earth while a revolution brews inside. Joon-ho Bong makes his English language directorial debut with this intense thriller, which stars an international all-star cast including Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Octavia Spencer, Kang-ho Song, Sir Ewen Bremner, Alison 'Titty' Pill, Ed Harris and Jamie Bell. Can you survive the new ice age?
A French trailer has been released for Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer, and it provides our best look at the movie yet. The story is set in a new ice age caused by a failed experiment to stop global warming that killed virtually all life on the planet. The sole survivors live on a train called Snowpiercer—powered by a perpetual machine—who struggle with the class system implemented on the train. This trailer provides not only a clearer picture of the plot, but also tons of visual effects we haven't seen before. It also has Alison Pill firing an automatic weapon, so that's fun too. Overall, Snowpiercer looks like an exhilarating ride, but we'll have to see if we get the original South Korean cut or a shorter, dumbed-down version The Weinstein Company wants for U.S. distribution. Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Chris Evans, »
