Set against the hyper-competitive market of shipping routes and the intense, all-consuming rivalries they spawn, The Modern Ocean is certainly a sprawling adventure on paper, and reports state that Carruth’s script is a 200-page tome replete with diagrams and various annotations.

The Mark Gordon Company is developing a terrorism crime drama for ABC, hailing from scribe Michael Finch and “Hostages” co-creator Jeffrey Nachmanoff who will direct the pilot, Variety has learned exclusively.
The project is loosely inspired by the achievements and expertise of Ray Kelly, the longest serving Police Commissioner in New York City’s history. It follows two Joint Terrorism Task Force Agents, a FBI Special Agent and a NYPD detective, both very different people with secrets who are thrown together to solve the terror crime of the century before it happens. Their target is a man who knows everything about terror because he was designed to sow it. Two of these people know each other intimately — but not the ones you think, or in the way you think.

Neil deGrasse Tyson has a slogan for his StarTalk TV show that he isn't allowed to use. "It's 'Learn something for a change,'" he says with a laugh. "Our marketing people think it's offensive. But I still think: 'Learn something for a change!'"
As an astrophysicist, author, lecturer, and director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York, Tyson has spent a career trying to turn the rest of the country into fellow science geeks. As America's go-go spaceman, he's hosted his StarTalk podcast, radio show and now TV series, »
Crackle has recruited Dennis Quaid for The Art of More, its marquee piece of original content, but in a crowded marketplace can it make enough noise?
He’s known, of course, for feature film productions such as The Day After Tomorrow as well as other big-budget spectacles that play out on cinema screens over a couple of hours. But The Art of More, a forthcoming TV drama for which Dennis Quaid is a star and executive producer, represents a different kind of creative gamble.
The series, premiering in November, is the first one-hour original drama from Crackle, Sony Pictures Television’s streaming TV service. That makes the show a new kind of media from a still relatively new player that’s looking to distinguish itself amid the pitched battle between streaming content companies for talent, buzz and viewer attention.

The film chronicles the story Mapes »

A new featurette about the flick -- which is premiering today exclusively here on Moviefone -- examines both the context of what led to the riots, as well as Emmerich's own motivations for tackling the titular subject on the big screen. Emmerich, who's known more to moviegoers as the man behind big-budget blockbusters like "Independence Day," "The Day After Tomorrow," and "White House Down," explained that it was important for him to tell the story of Stonewall not only because he himself is a gay man, but because he wants to bring a bigger awareness to the fight for Lgbt equality, something that is still an issue today.
"These characters are just normal people like everyone else," added actor Vladimir Alexis, »

Best known for such spectacle-driven blockbusters as “2012” and “The Day After Tomorrow,” Roland Emmerich has made his reputation exploiting audience’s anxieties over what the future may hold: What if a second ice age struck or a series of tidal waves wiped out most of mankind? With “Stonewall,” the openly gay director puts such speculative fantasy aside and opts to engage with a more intimate real-world crisis, using the sheer dynamism of 1969’s historic Greenwich Village uprising as a platform to address the epidemic of homelessness among Lgbtq youth, past and present. While it’s encouraging to see such a subject treated with the same grandiosity afforded alien invasions, particularly at a moment when gay rights hold such currency, representation-starved audiences deserve more than this problematic collection of stereotypes, which lacks the galvanizing power of such recent we-shall-overcome triumphs as “Selma” or “Milk,” and won’t draw anywhere near their numbers. »

Jake Gyllenhaal has been doing some incredible work as of late. For the most part, he always was (well, except for The Day After Tomorrow and Prince Of Persia), but when you take a look at his last few films, it is one dynamite performance after another. Source Code. End Of Watch. Prisoners. Enemy. Nightcrawler. Southpaw. Gyllenhaal seems to get better and better each time out, which is why I have high hopes for him in... Read More »

Debuting at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, here’s a look at the new trailer and posters for Sicario.
When Arizona FBI agent and kidnap-response-team leader Kate Macer (Golden Globe winner Emily Blunt) uncovers a Mexican cartel’s house of death, her shocking find leads to profound consequences on both a personal and global level.

It was supposed to be a love letter from a blockbuster filmmaker to a community he had overlooked for too long, focusing instead on big-budget disaster films like The Day After Tomorrow and 2012. But openly gay director Roland Emmerich is now finding that his small-scale passion project, Stonewall, is turning into a bit of a disaster itself. The historical drama recounts the events surrounding the 1969 Stonewall Riots, a bloody standoff with police outside a Greenwich Village gay bar that is widely credited with kicking off the modern gay-rights movement. "I want to do a little movie,

Hollywood filmmaker Roland Emmerich has largely built his career by doing action blockbuster films, with features such as Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow, Godzilla, and White House Down to his credit. Emmerich’s next film, however, will see him diverge into a new area as he tackles a dramatic retelling of a true life event, tackling the Stonewall riots of 1969 in the Us that were spurned by anti-gay actions by law enforcement. Titled Stonewall, the film’s synopsis is as follows.
