Nothing ruins a cottage weekend like blood-thirsty sharks.
Especially when they start popping up in a saltwater lake and taking greedy bites out of your friends. But that's just what happens to the unsuspecting college kids in Shark Night 3D, and when getting off the island proves to be nearly impossible, they have to fight for their lives against some pretty terrifying predators.
We recently sat down with the film's two leads, Sara Paxton (Aquamarine, The Innkeepers) and Canada's Dustin Milligan (Gunless, "90210") at Toronto's Polson Pier, to chat about spending their summer punching sharks, driving speedboats and acting like action stars.

What better way to celebrate Canada Day than with the release of a movie about life in the Canadian outback before the turn of the century and The Mountie looks like a low-key western (it's a far cry from Paul Gross. Gunless) capable of doing just that.

Walker as Wade Grayling, a lone Mountie who has rolled into a town in the Yukon Territory to clean up the crime and corruption brewing behind closed doors (or in this case, inside tents). The movie also stars the talented Jessica Paré who some may recognize from her recent role on TV.s "Mad Men."
I'm not a huge fan of the title (I prefer the film's original title of Way of the West) but the trailer looks promising. It's adequately »
