We could all use an island getaway, am I right? Fun in the sun. Powdery sand. Calm ocean waters lulling us to sleep while the super clean air has us breathing easier. It's just too bad that sometimes even in paradise the shit can hit the fan.
Check out some early art, stills, and even the sales trailer below.
After a group of college kids vanish in the Caribbean Islands, one of the missing girls is found floating on a yacht off the Florida coast.

If you have yet to see the “Qatsi trilogy” from director Godfrey Reggio, you can get started right now as the most notable entry, Koyaanisqatsi, is available in its entirety YouTube. Also including Powaqqatsi and Naqoyqatsi, the trilogy features an experimental, dialogue-free examination of nature, humanity and technology with scores by Philip Glass.
The team is getting together again for a new project titled The Holy See and details are scarce, but our friend Chris Campbell at his Documentary Channel blog dug up two trailers for the film that were made for the Cannes film market. The film is currently still in post-production and seeking funds and if interested in helping, their Vimeo page provides this e-mail to contact, but we can get a glimpse at footage that includes amusement parks, gorillas and many staring humans. Check out both trailers below.

As much as I love being part of the Supernatural fandom, I have to admit that I had never been to a convention before this weekend. Fortunately, Creation Entertainment finally organized a Supernatural convention in my hometown of Toronto, so it was only a short trip to attend my very first "con".
I've attended the Supernatural panels at Comic-Con and have interviewed the actors before - in San Diego and during a visit last week to Vancouver (read more here), so I didn't think this experience would be very different. And it wasn't that different from hearing the screaming fans at Comic-Con. It was just a lot more intense. It's one thing to be at a convention with 100,000 people who all enjoy different shows, but there's something far more intensified about being in a room with only a few hundred people who are incredibly passionate about one show. And people »
Exclusive: Reveille is entering the first-run syndication arena. The production company owned by News Corp’s Shine Group has tapped syndication executive Eric Pankowski for the newly created position of Svp Creative Affairs. In that role, he will oversee the development of syndicated programming for Reveille, a new area for the company known primarily for scripted and unscripted network shows such as The Office, The Biggest Loser and MasterChef as well as online series. Pankowski most recently served as Svp of Jim Paratore’s company, paraMedia inc., and previously worked at Telepictures. Additionally, Reveille president Eden Gaha, who joined the company in May after a long stint at Mark Burnett Prods, has brought in another veteran Mbp executive, Chris Campbell, to serve as Executive in Charge of Post Production. Campbell had served in the same capacity at Mbp since 2002. Also joining Reveille’s executive team is Jake Smith as Executive Director, »

Super-stardom always looks so inevitable in retrospect: of course Ryan Gosling would make a name for himself in well-received indie movies like Lars and the Real Girl and Blue Valentine, while also finding popular success in movies like The Notebook and Crazy, Stupid, Love.
But is that true? Once you each a certain level and generate the "right" kind of buzz, is super-stardom inevitable?
As near as I can tell, Hollywood is still basically playing by the "three-flops-and-you're-out" rule: after a leading actor's breakthrough success, he gets about three more roles to prove himself.
If these movies flop, and if their name recognition is still high enough because of that initial break-through, they »

As you've probably heard (we may have mentioned it a few times), Oscar winner Steven Soderbergh is preparing to film the Citizen Kane of beefcake films. No doubt, Magic Mike will be competing for Oscars this time next year.
You may think that a film about stripping will be silly, and a walk in the park for these actors, but this is serious business. If there's one word that will never be used in conjunction with this movie, it's "fluff."
Oh wait. Actually, that word may play a role.
What I mean is that it's not going to be as simple as it looks. Stripping isn't only about taking your clothes off. »
President Obama paid his respects - and offered a shoulder to cry on - at Dover Air Force Base Tuesday as he consoled families of the 30 U.S. troops whose remains were brought home from Afghanistan. "I told him, I want you to give me my grandson back. I want him alive," Madeline Bernice Strange tells People. Her grandson, Navy Seal Michael Strange, 25, was among the servicemen killed Aug. 6 when their Chinook helicopter was shot down in eastern Afghanistan - the single deadliest loss in the decade-long war there. "I told the President we never should've been there" in Afghanistan, »

A report about fight gone out of control has called our attention to a new horror film now in production. It's called Darkroom and it is directed by Britt Napier; this is her feature debut. Kaylee DeFer of Gossip Girl plays a woman named Michelle who takes a job recommended by her counselor. The gig lands her trapped in a mansion with three psychotic siblings hell bent on purging Michelle of her sins. Elisabeth Röhm ( Angel ) co-stars with Christian Campbell, Britne Oldford, Natalie Knepp, Steven Stanulis and Tobias Segal. As for that aforementioned fight, it apparently occurred between DeFer and Stanulis. Not a big deal. »
Made in 2009 and unreleased in the UK until now, Neighbor comes from writer/director Robert A. Masciantonio, whose earlier film Cold Hearts was famous for starring former pink Power Ranger Amy Jo Johnson. This time round his lead is America Olivio, last seen in the grindhouse inspired Bitch Slap, who stars as the unnamed “neighbor” of the title who wanders the suburbs of Canada, breaking into homes and torturing their owners. Which is nice work if you can get it.
Unfortunately for bachelor Don (Campbell, who also starred in Masciantonio’s Cold Hearts) our psychotic protagonist sets her sights on him and before long he’s hogtied in his basement getting drill, stabbed and all-round mutilated by the movie reference quoting nut-job. Movie references that span the gamut from Marathon Man to Happy Gilmore! »
One of the most surprising things about the final season of HBO’s Big Love (Sundays at 9/8c) — besides the Henricksons going public with their polygamist beliefs, of course — has been the emergence (and importance!) of Nicki’s daughter, played by up-and-comer Cassi Thomson. Will Cara Lynn’s illicit affair further destroy the family? How will it all end? Thomson tells all to TVLine.
Tvline | Big Love is thisclose to coming to an end, and Cara Lynn has been such an integral part of its final season. How has that been for you?
It’s been so amazing. Honestly, our »

It's the end of the world for Nicki." She described the revelations (more) »
