There's a brand new end-of-the-world scenario coming to Reelz, and this time around the apocalypse could be coming courtesy of an Exploding Sun. In the movie, the first ever commercial space shuttle is struck by a solar storm, and as a result the ship is catapulted on a direct course for the sun. Things get dicey for everyone on planet Earth when it's discovered the event will trigger an infinitely larger solar storm that could send us all back into the Stone Age. Will the world survive? Find out when Exploding Sun premieres on Reelz Monday, September 9th at 8p Et/ 5p Pt.
In the meantime, we figured the best way to prepare for the explosion is to study the one line of dialogue that absolutely must be uttered during a big on-screen explosion. Take a moment to watch this "It's Gonna Blow!" supercut to get ready for the big event. »

Zap2it: With as many actors as reportedly went after the title role of "Longmire," were you surprised to get it?
Robert Taylor: I read it and just instantly connected with it. I put down a little test on tape back in Australia, sent it off and then forgot about it. About a month later, it popped into my head that I'd never heard anything back ... and about 30 seconds later, the phone rang. And it was that call from L.A.
