When unmanned probes suggest that a hidden ocean could exist underneath Europa’s icy surface and may contain single-celled life, Europa Ventures, a privately funded space exploration company, sends six of the best astronauts from around the world to confirm the data and explore the revolutionary discovery. After a near-catastrophic technical failure that leads to loss of communication with Earth and the tragic death of a crew member, the surviving astronauts must overcome the psychological and physical toll of deep space travel, and survive a discovery on Europa more profound than they had ever imagined.
I’m always a little bit timid around space thrillers like Europa Report, because I find the idea of space and its lack of gravity and replenish-able sustenance thrilling (in a scary way) enough. When you take »

Is it just me, or is "Haven" going kind of nuts these days? Think about it -- in "Lay Me Down," we get suddenly contagious Troubles, hints that Jennifer may have even more Barn connections, the mysterious arrival of creepy Barn guys ... Oh, and Wade Crocker (Christian Camargo) totally went the serial-killer route before his own brother had to kill him.
It's nuts. But nuts is good. Find out why in this recap.
Two important points are made in the very first scene of "Lay Me Down": Jennifer is back in town, and Wade is all evil and stuff. Also, Jennifer isn't insane anymore and therefore wants to get a newspaper job at the only periodical in town, the "Haven Herald." This means that she may or may not wear glasses.
Wade, meanwhile, gets all creepy in his quest for cleaning supplies.

Viewership for Haven came down last season but Syfy still renewed the series. Will the ratings continue to fall this season or will the rise? Will the show be cancelled or brought back for season five? Time will tell.
On Haven, FBI Agent Audrey Parker (Emily Rose) and Officer Nathan Wuornos (Lucas Bryant) investigate strange occurrences in the small town of Haven, Maine. Others in the cast include Eric Balfour, Nicholas Campbell, Richard Donat, John Dunsworth, Colin Feruson, Emma Lahana, Adam Copeland, and Christian Camargo.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

Audiences have come to expect a certain degree of invention in Hollywood sci-fi, whether it’s hearing explosions in space or freezing as soon as you enter it without protection. Europa Report, an ultra low-budgeted found-footage thriller about a crew of astronauts sent into deep space to explore one of Jupiter’s moons, deserves respect for meticulously researching the real science behind its fictional story in order to produce the most unidealized movie about space travel since 2001: A Space Odyssey.
The film follows six astronauts sent by privately funded space exploration company Europa Ventures to explore the titular moon of Jupiter. Recently discovered underground lakes have piqued scientific curiosity, and the astronauts en route clearly believe finding life on Europa is not just possible, but probable. After an unexpected catastrophe results in the loss of communication with Earth and the death of a crew member, the remaining crew of »

Written by Philip Gelatt
Directed by Sebastián Cordero
The world’s collective attitude and passion towards deep space exploration has petered out in the last few decades, and nobody, it seems, is more peeved about this than the makers of Europa Report. With grandiose talk of profound discoveries and changing the context in which humanity perceives itself, the sci-fi found footage film clearly has a polemic in mind, but what it has to say, and how Europa Report says it, sometimes makes for a messy story.
The narrative itself centers around a group of six astronauts (Daniel Wu, Anamaria Marinca, Christian Camargo, Karolina Wydra, Sharlto Copley, and Michael Nyqvist) on board a mission to a moon in Jupiter’s orbit called Europa, hoping to find signs of life. Told through closed circuit cameras and personal camcorder footage found on the ship, which are interlaced with post-mission testimonials »

Broadway audiences don't always take to movie stars. But Orlando Bloom is more than a pretty face. He is also a stage actor with the chops to carry off one of history's classic roles.
Yes, at 36, he is a little old for the star-crossed teenager, as is his Juliet, Condola Rashad, at 26. But they are equally matched and very good, even if devoid of chemistry, in an aggressively odd production of "Romeo and Juliet" at The Richard Rodgers Theatre.
Romeo enters on a motorcycle, wearing ripped jeans, work boots and a few necklaces. He and the rest of the men are in modern dress. The women, however, wear flowing long dresses and shawls, intended to take us back in time. Why the men are in one century and the women in a non-specific distant one is distracting.
A whole lot on the stage is distracting, which is a shame when »
Now that Dexter has concluded it’s time for a definitive ranking of the seasons. I’m braced for your blowback because season 4 is Not #1 on my list (scandal!). Be sure to check out our series finale recap and Q&A with the Dexter producers about that ending and the final season. See what you think:
Season 2: The Bay Harbor Butcher

Dexter Morgan has been hiding in plain sight for eight seasons on Showtime, and throughout those years, a handful of people have challenged our antihero — but most didn’t live to tell the tale.
At last week’s PaleyFest farewell to Dexter, we asked the show’s cast and producer to name their favorite foes for the serial-killer-with-a-code. We heard one name quite a few times — the Dexter cast is still getting over the damage done by John Lithgow’s Arthur Mitchell, a.k.a. The Trinity Killer, in season 4 — but a few answers might surprise you (is Dexter’s ultimate antagonist actually Deb? »

This season starts off a bit bleak and Nathan seems to be this dejected version of himself, not the confident guy he used to be. So can you talk a little bit about what it has been like playing that version of the character?
Lucas Bryant: Yeah, that was a really cool turn for me. I mean you know as you said, Nathan has always been maybe a little bit too sure of himself. I mean sure, he’s always got doubts, but he had this kind of blind trust in himself, and Audrey, and that as you saw at the end of Season 3 led to a disastrous outcome. So now, yeah, getting to explore that you know »

Bill Condon: ‘Breaking Dawn’ director’s cut exists, but not part of ‘Twilight Saga’ box set (photo: Bill Condon directing Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson in ‘Breaking Dawn’) While plugging his upcoming Wikileaks movie The Fifth Estate at the 2013 Toronto Film Festival, Bill Condon spoke with Collider.com‘s Steve Weintraub about his own private version of the two Twilight Saga movies he directed — Breaking Dawn - Part 1 and Breaking Dawn - Part 2. In Condon’s "director’s cut," the two movies based on Stephenie Meyer’s final Twilight novel are rolled into one. In answer to a question about his contributions to the Twilight Saga box set to come out in fall 2013, Bill Condon explained that although there shouldn’t be any additional Breaking Dawn - Part 2 scenes, "I do have a kind of version of those two [Breaking Dawn] movies cut into one movie that is not going to »

"All these worlds are yours, except Europa. Attempt no landing there." There is a sci-fi film playing now that's one of the best in a long time. Similar to the upcoming Gravity, it's a film that might not even deserve the science fiction classification because it's much more science reality. The film is titled Europa Report, directed by Ecuadorian filmmaker Sebastián Cordero, and it involves a two-year long manned mission to Europa, Jupiter's sixth moon where many have theorized life might exist underneath miles of ice covering the surface. It's an excellent film that I've already seen multiple times and can't wait to watch again. Luckily, I was able to meet with Sebastián Cordero in person for a 17 minute chat about sci-fi and making this film. From a screenplay by Philip Gelatt, Europa Report features Christian Camargo, Anamaria Marinca, Michael Nyqvist, Daniel Wu, Karolina Wydra & Sharlto Copley as a six-man »

Title: Europa Report Director: Sebastian Cordero Starring: Sharlto Copley, Michael Nyqvist, Embeth Davidtz, Daniel Wu, Christian Camargo, Karolina Wydra, Anamaria Marinca A buzzy American premiere at this summer’s Los Angeles Film Festival, director Sebastian Cordero’s low-boil, sci-fi thriller “Europa Report” has racked up rapturous reviews (it presently stands just shy of 80 percent on Rotten Tomatoes) in large part because of the stark contrast in which it stands to most like-minded genre efforts. Undeniably, it is elegant, understated and wonderfully designed. Unfortunately, it’s also frustratingly hackneyed — a solidly cast, interesting budget concept absolutely wrecked by cross-cutting and needless voiceover. Penned by Philip Gelatt (“The Bleeding House”), the film centers [ Read More ]
The post Europa Report Movie Review 3 appeared first on Shockya.com. »
Camargo, best known for playing the Ice Truck Killer on "Dexter," comes on as Wade Crocker, the older brother of Duke (Eric Balfour). Described as charming, driven and devious, Wade at first appears to be the "good" Crocker brother. He is a successful and pleasant businessman, but a dark and deadly secret hidden in the Crocker family could be his undoing.
Lahana ("Hellcats") comes to the show to play Jennifer Mason, an eccentric and energetic young woman who just happens to be hearing strange voices in her head. Could her condition help those in Haven find the missing Audrey Parker (Emily Rose)? Or will Jennifer have an even more important role in the strange town.

Haven Season 4 is coming to wrap itself around us in all its creepy mysterious gorgeous Nova Scotia-posing-as-New England goodness, and I am So Ready. They’ve even made it easy to remember the premiere date: Friday the 13th of next month.
I’m thrilled that Colin Ferguson (Eureka) is joining as a recurring guest star, and now we have news of two others. I hope they all fare better than last year’s recurring guest star. You know, the psychologist? Yowie.
With so many shows, new characters can be disruptive, but the casting in this series has always been impeccable, and seamless with the writing and the collective excellence of the show. And no matter how hard they try, and sometimes they do try, guest stars seem to never be able to permanently break up my favorite love/buddy triangle of Audrey, Nathan, and Duke.

Syfy has released new information about Haven Season 4.
The series will pick up six months after the dramatic meteor storm that hit the town on the Haven Season 3 finale, which resulted in Audry and Duke vanishing into thin air.
The former will portray Jennifer Mason, an eccentric who gets involved in Haven when she begins hearing voices in her head. Expect this character to learn more about her family history and how it relates to other residents in town.
Camargo (forever remembered to most as the brother of Dexter Morgan) will come on board as Wade Crocker, the estranged half-brother of Eric Balfour's Duke Crocker. He's described as a a "charming and driven and slightly devious" businessman who may be undone by a dark family secret.

Another Successful Disaster in Space: Cordero Takes Found Footage to the Outer Limits
Boldly taking the found footage genre where no one has taken it before, Europa Report launches us into deep space with a crew doomed to make a discovery that will change human history. Previously, the genre’s uncanny ability to convince us the unbelievable has actually happened has been exploited mostly by horror filmmakers. Ecuadorean helmer Sebastian Cordero however proves through his stylish, gripping, and masterfully arranged storytelling that found footage has exciting applications far beyond horror. His love of humanistic detail distinguishes and elevates the film above other space and found footage movies and places it more snugly in the tradition of European verite filmmaking set in extreme environments, for space is nothing if not extreme.
Europa is a moon around Jupiter harboring large reserves of water, suggesting signs of alien life-forms. When the first privately-funded »
