Chris Pine braves the storming seas for a rescue mission in Disney's Finest Hours teaser

9 July 2015 11:24 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A dangerous rescue on the stormy seas lies ahead for Chris Pine in a trailer for Disney's The Finest Hours.

Disney's action-adventure epic re-tells the true story of the 1952 Pendleton rescue mission, which followed a storm irrevocably damaging two oil tankers at sea.

Pine takes on an almost suicidal mission as Coast Guard serviceman Bernard Webber to rescue Ray Sybert's (Casey Affleck) crew aboard the doomed tanker.

The Finest Hours was filmed along the coast of Quincy, Massachusetts by Fright Night director Craig Gillespie.

Its release comes five years after Disney first secured the rights to the historical novel of the same name.

The Finest Hours opens in Us and UK cinemas on January 29. »

Now, they go for a different kind of inspirational story with The Finest Hours.

‘Tom Holland’s Twisted Tales’ DVD Review

5 June 2015 2:25 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Amber Benson, Angela Bettis, Aj Bowen, Jose Pablo Cantillo, James Duval, William Forsythe, Eddie Hargitay, Danielle Harris, Noah Hathaway, Marc Senter, Megan Thompson, Alex Urbom, Ray Wise | Written and Directed by Tom Holland

Originally conceived and made as a 9-episode web series for the now defunct FearNet, Tom Holland’s Twisted Tales has been released on to DVD as yet another horror anthology rather than TV show – running a huge 144 minutes – encompassing the entire series in one “movie”; and an inconsistent movie at that.

Some would say that you have to give web-based programming some leaway, after all budgets aren’t as high etc. However when said web series comes from FearNet, a site that had backing and had the resources, you have to wonder why they didn’t spend that little bit more money to make something a little more polished.

Review: 'The Summoning' Is a Significant Step for African American-Oriented Genre Fare on a Cable Network (Premieres Tomorrow, June 6)

5 June 2015 1:24 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

TV One original movie, "The Summoning," premieres tomorrow Saturday, June 6 at 8 p.m. Et on TV One, directed by Charles Murray, and starring Paula Jai Parker, Terrell Tilford, Dorian Missick, Darius McCrary, Storm Reid, and Diandra Lyle. In the past, TV One has not been good at executing genre work. "Fright Night" and "Fear Files" have bordered on being unwatchable, and, in a word, lazy. So much so that I feared deeply for the viewers who are largely African American adults, assuming that more than a few would imagine the horror/thriller genre as nothing but cheap, gimmicky, ridiculous fare. If these projects that are written by, »
