Seal Team Six: The Raid of Osama Bin Laden came out first, playing on the National Geographic Channel and Netflix before its DVD and Blu-ray release. (The other is Zero Dark Thirty, which hits theaters the weekend after Seal Team Six arrives on disc.)
In Seal Team Six, Cam Gigandet (Pandorum), Anson Mount (Burning Palms), Freddy Rodriguez (TV’s Six Feet Under) and Xzibit (Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans) are among the SEALs called to a secret and important mission. Kathleen Robertson (TV’s Boss) plays Vivian, the agent who has been tracking Osama Bin Laden and believes she has identified the compound where the Al Quaida leader has been hiding. »

The CW has finally announced the premiere date for "Cult": Feb. 19, 2013.
The creepy, show-within-a-show suspense thriller will replace Emily Owens, M.D. , in the Tuesday 9 p.m. time slot. The CW recently announced that the freshman medical dramedy starring Mamie Gummer would end after its 13th episode.
"Cult" stars Matt Davis ("The Vampire Diaries") as Jeff Sefton, a reporter investigating the mysterious disappearance of his brother, one of many obsessive fans of the interactive TV series "Cult." It's very dark and very meta, with many tongue-in-cheek references to the, um, devoted fans of other CW series. "Cult's" fans, however, take their devotion to deadly extremes.
Sefton partners up with the show's research assistant, Skye Yarrow (Jessica Lucas), to delve into the dark underworld of "Cult." Also starring are Robert Knepper ("Prison Break") as fictional cult leader Billy Grimm/actor Roger Reeves and Alona Tal ("Supernatural") as fictional Lapd »

The film, directed by Robert Schwentke (The Time Traveler’s Wife, Red), is based on the mini-series by Dark Horse Comics, which is the third-largest comics publisher in the U.S and known for such titles as Star Wars, Buffy and Hellboy. R.I.P.D. centres on a recently slain cop who joins a team of undead police officers working for the Rest in Peace Department as he tries to find the man responsible for his murder.
Alrighty, kids! It's paparazzi time. Some behind-the-scenes imagery from R.I.P.D. has made its way online, and we have all the eye candy you need to dig on right here. Check it out, and look for more on this long talked about adaptation soon!
Robert Schwentke is directing the project, which follows a murdered cop (Reynolds) who is recruited to work in the Rest in Peace Department, a police force comprised of ghosts who battle spirits unready to depart this world. Jeff Bridges is playing Reynolds' ghostly partner.
Universal Pictures' supernatural farce has been scheduled for July 19, 2013.

Red director Robert Schwentke is at the helm for this ‘buddy’ action comedy based on the Dark Horse graphic novel series R.I.P.D. (Rest In Piece Department) by Peter M. Lenkov. The plot is centred on a supernatural police force who investigate the cases in the world they have now left behind. Ryan Reynolds takes the lead role of a recently murdered cop who crosses to the ‘other-side’ and joins the team of undead police officers, including Jeff Bridges’ old west-styled Sheriff Roy Pulsipher, in solving his own crime.
Kevin Bacon, Mary-Louise Parker, Stephanie Szostak, Marisa Miller, Mike O’Malley, James Hong and Robert Knepper co-star in the film due in cinemas next summer and here we have a number of set stills (which we believe are from re-shoots) featuring the likes of Reynolds, Bridges and Parker.
