Sci-Fi London 2017 Review – Domain (2016)

Domain, 2016

Directed by Nathaniel Atcheson

Starring Britt Lower, Ryan Merriman, William Gregory Lee, Kevin Sizemore, Nick Gomez, Sonja Sohn, Cedric Sanders, Beth Grant


In the years following a deadly flu epidemic, seven survivors communicate with each other from their individual underground bunkers, scattered throughout the United States.

Low-rent sci-fi can usually go one of two ways: smart and subtle, pinned to a manageable concept, or washed out by cheap, schlocky special effects. Luckily, bare-bones single-location thriller Domain opts for the former, running off a clever (if not entirely original) plot, with a fresh set of characters and a thoroughly involving central idea. Rather than wasting his limited resources on another unnecessarily loud outbreak thriller about people hunting for food and murdering each other in desperation, director Nathaniel Atcheson has opted for something a little more close to home: humanity’s innate desire to be social. And for the most part,

First Clip from Domain Features a Disturbing Disappearance

  • DailyDead
Sealed inside self-contained bunkers, they are humanity's only hope, but the final flickering flame of civilization could be snuffed out for good when Earth's last survivors start vanishing in the new sci-fi thriller Domain. Ahead of the film's world premiere at the Other Worlds Austin Sci-Fi Film Festival this Sunday, a new clip teases a disturbing disappearance.

Synopsis: "After a deadly virus wipes out most of humanity, the survivors are forced to wait alone in self-sustaining bunkers while the viral threat runs its course. Able to communicate through a networked video interface, the survivors wait for years and slowly become a motley family of sorts. But their fragile social ecosystem is shattered when, one by one, they start mysteriously disappearing from their bunkers."

Written and directed by Nathaniel Atcheson, Domain stars Britt Lower, Ryan Merriman, Sonja Sohn, Beth Grant, William Gregory Lee, Kevin Sizemore, Nick Gomez, and Cedric Sanders.

Mind Games Review – Steve Zahn And Christian Slater Shoot For Every Emotion

Mind Games Review

ABC/Bob D’Amico

Mind Games, hitting on ABC February 25th, has a lot of things going against it before it even airs, and it’s difficult to judge the chances of overcoming the hurdles, no matter how much you might hope it will. Not only is Christian Slater having a rough run when it comes to TV series, but the show is also the creation of Kyle Killen, who just can’t catch a break.

With past projects Awake and Lone Star (both of them solid shows that deserved far better treatment) falling rather quickly, it’s hard to look at Killen as someone who can put things out that audiences will really get behind, or that will convince networks to stick with for an extended run if they have slow starts.

Our story here is that of Ross (Slater) and Clark (Zahn), brothers who are

ABC 2013-2014 Schedule Full Preview With Trailers

At ABC‘s upfront, there were a few things that the network wanted to make sure you knew. 1) They are really impressed with the idea that people are going to watch Rebel Wilson do just about anything, and 2) There isn’t anything they’re happier about than bringing you more episodes of television created by Shonda Rhimes.

On these notes, the network would love for you to know that more Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal are coming your way. These, ABC would like to impress upon you (as advertisers) are really good shows.

New 2013 TV Season Breakdown: ABC

The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the third announced earlier today. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on ABC.

The network is changing up some of its serialized dramas - removing random repeats in favor of two "uninterrupted runs" of twelve episodes each (one in the fall, one in the spring) for shows like "Once Upon A Time," "Grey’s Anatomy," "Scandal" and "Revenge". The large gaps between the two half-seasons will be bridged by "limited series" designed around only 12-13 episode seasons.

Several other pilots didn't make the final cut and won't be seen including the high-profile "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" rip-off "Gothica", McG's rip-off of Baz Luhrmann's "Romeo + Juliet" entitled "Westside", the series based on Disneyland's Big Thunder Mountain ride, the Annie Potts-led "Murder in Manhattan" about

'Mind Games' trailer: Christian Slater and Steve Zahn use Jedi mind tricks to help the world

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player

Is it possible to manipulate people so that they will do what you want? Clark and Ross Edwards have founded an entire company based on that premise in "Mind Games."

Written and executive produced by Kyle Killen ("Awake," "Lone Star"), "Mind Games" stars Christian Slater (Ross) and Steve Zahn (Clark) as brothers who use the science of psychological manipulation in order to solve their clients' problems. Of course, the two men have problems of their own -- Clark suffers from bipolar disorder while Ross is a con man with a past in the prison system.

Still, these problems help them get inside the human mind better than anyone else. Based on the trailer, the show seems to be a procedural of sorts, heavily influenced by the strong characters of the brothers. There is also a smattering of "Leverage" to be seen, since the company seems

All Things Fall Apart

What opens as a drama between two brothers, shy, uncoordinated Sean (Cedric Sanders) and football prodigy Deon (50 Cent), the toast of his small town and primed for the NFL, changes course when Deon’s health takes him out of the limelight.

Aff 2011: Things Fall Apart Review

[Things Fall Apart screened at this year's Atlanta Film Festival.] Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson can't act. It's not a slam against his character; it's just something he can't do. But his lack of acting ability is an absolute killer in the Mario Van Peebles drama Things Fall Apart where Jackson takes on the role of a football player who gets cancer. Jackson seriously committed to making a full-on physical transformation for the role, but he apparently couldn't be bothered to take an acting lesson, which makes all of his hard work seem like a waste. Even if the film didn't hinge on Jackson's performance, it would still be beset by maudlin clichés, irritating supporting characters, and poor direction. Deon (Jackson) is a star college football player who's on the verge of going pro. However, despite receiving love and praise for his entire life due to his athletic ability, he's still a good guy who loves his family and is willing to
