Stars: Patrick Schwarzenegger, Jacob Lofland, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Joshua Close, Derek Brandon, Ele Bardha, Jostein Sagnes, James Bloor, Atif Hashwi, Joe Cipriano, Eva Rosenwald | Written by Matthew Ogens, Kyle Lierman | Directed by Matthew Ogens

In a post-apocalyptic America in which all of the adults appear to have been killed off by a mysterious virus, the few surviving children force themselves to keep going to school. Survivalism, chopping wood and scavenging for food are all prioritised by this brand new curriculum, as the desperate youths prepare for a harsh winter.

In a world which is ruled by the older teenagers (who are about as petty, spiteful and cruel as one might expect), young(er) Josh dreams of escape, up North, where it is rumoured that there are more survivors and he hopes his parents might still be alive. After an altercation with the malevolent Gentry (a boorish James Bloor, who threatens

Watch: First Trailer for Post-Apocalyptic Adventure Thriller 'Go North'

"The rules are the rules." Orion Pictures + FilmBuff have revealed an intense trailer for the indie film Go North, a post-apocalyptic adventure about some kids who try to escape the "Lord of the Flies" community they're living in. Starring a young cast including Patrick Schwarzenegger, Jacob Lofland (from Mud), Sophie Kennedy Clark, Joshua Close, Derek Brandon, Joe Cipriano, Ele Bardha, Atif Hashwi, and James Bloor. This is another one of those movies about a "catastrophic event" in the near future that wipes out everyone. Except this time it apparently spares all the teenagers and children, who have created their own communities to survive. But of course, it's not the kind of world everyone wants to live in. Enjoy. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Matt Ogens' Go North, direct from YouTube: In the aftermath of an unknown catastrophe, a community left with zero living adults has descended into a modern-day Lord of the Flies,

[Review] Cash Only

An arson insurance scam attempt gone tragically wrong leaves low-rent criminal Elvis Martini (Nickola Shreli) with little to hold onto besides his young daughter Lena (Ava Simony) in Cash Only. Unfortunately, he also has little to provide her despite two years having passed since the incident. Money woes mount as Albanian bookies who’ve given him the benefit of the doubt for too long seek what’s owed and the bank threatens to foreclose on his five-unit apartment complex—his only means of income (when his tenants pay). He and Lena have four weeks to procure funds before they’re on the streets so the drive to squeeze his squatters for rent intensifies until Elvis’ surveillance cameras expose how one resident is stashing more than enough cash to ease his struggle for good.

You’d think one petty criminal would know that stealing from another inevitably means the bigger, badder

Movie of the Week

Water for Elephants

The Stars: Robert Pattinson, Reese Witherspoon, Christoph Waltz

The Plot: A veterinary student (Pattinson) abandons his studies after his parents are killed and joins a traveling circus as their vet.

The Buzz: This period piece looks to be a well put together romantic drama. I enjoyed Pattinson’s general vibe in the trailer; thankfully a far cry from his brooding ham-bake of the Twilight films. Witherspoon is winsome, I typically love her in her more dramatic pieces — aside from the laborious Vanity Fair. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of on-screen magic this pair can conjure up. Happy to see Christolph Waltz again,

Exclusive: Chris Fisher Talks Street Kings: Motor City

Exclusive: Chris Fisher Talks Street Kings: Motor City
Director Chris Fisher talks about Street Kings 2: Motor City, working in Detroit, his new projects and much more

Director Chris Fisher is one of those directors that has found a niche directing in both film and television. He has directed features such as Dirty and S. Darko along with TV episodes for such programs as Warehouse 13, Eureka, and Hawaii Five-0. He directed all those episodes between 2009's S. Darko and his latest movie, Street Kings 2: Motor City, which hits the shelves on Blu-ray and DVD on April 19. Much like S. Darko, Street Kings 2: Motor City is a movie that is much better than the "straight-to-dvd" tag often indicates, with a stellar cast (Ray Liotta and Shawn Hatosy) and a solid story. I had the chance to speak with Chris Fisher over the phone recently about his new movie, and here's what he had to say.

Exclusive: Zoe Bell Talks Game of Death

Exclusive: Zoe Bell Talks Game of Death
Actress/stuntwoman Zoe Bell discusses her role in Game of Death, working with Wesley Snipes, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters and more

Zoe Bell got her big acting break in Quentin Tarantino's half of Grindhouse, Death Proof, but she had originally impressed Quentin Tarantino much earlier than that. She portrayed the stunt double for Uma Thurman in Kill Bill Vol. 1 and Kill Bill Vol. 2, which lead to her role in Death Proof and a double-threat career as both a talented actress and stunt woman. Her latest acting performance is in the new action-adventure Game of Death, which just hit the shelves on Blu-ray and DVD on February 15. I recently had the chance to speak with this versatile actress over the phone about Game of Death, and here's what she had to say.
