Designated Survivor episode 1 review: Pilot

Kiefer Sutherland's academic politician is thrust into the White House after a national tragedy in new drama Designated Survivor...

This review contains spoilers.

1.1 Pilot

I tried to tell myself that it was because I am just finishing up another marathon run through The West Wing. I mean, as an American, looking at our current Presidential race, what else is there to do? We are staring at a race between one of the most experienced and prepared candidates to ever run for the office and a dangerous, dishonest cretin who likely couldn’t place half the States he supposedly wants to preside over on a map of his own country and doesn’t give a damn about the rest of the world—and here’s the kicker: our journalists and many other supposedly serious-minded people are acting like this is an even match.

Pacific Rim 2 Gets Belko Experiment Star

13 September 2016 1:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As Pacific Rim 2, rumored to be titled Pacific Rim: Malestrom, nears production, the cast continues to grow. Director Steven DeKnight has teased that the project has added a new cast member, but sadly, he wasn't overly specific about who it is. What we do know is that someone from the upcoming horror thriller The Belko Experiment is in the Pacific Rim sequel.

DeKnight took to his Twitter account on Monday to reveal that he is very much looking forward to The Belko Experiment, which was written by Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn. Much more importantly, the director revealed that somebody from the cast of that movie has joined the cast of Pacific Rim: Maelstrom, but he didn't say exactly who. Here is what he did have to say about it.

"So looking forward to this. And someone in this cast just happens to be in #PacificRim2..."

Toronto: James Gunn Horror Film ‘Belko Experiment’ Sells

11 September 2016 5:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bh Tilt and Orion have purchased “The Belko Experiment” after the horror film enjoyed a spirited debut at the Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday, Variety has confirmed.

The film is directed by Greg McLean (“Wolf Creek”) from a script by “Guardians of the Galaxy’s” James Gunn.

It centers on a perverse social engineering experiment where co-workers are trapped in a corporate office and guided through a lethal game by a mysterious voiceover from an intercom. “The Newsroom’s” John Gallagher, Jr. and “Scandal’s” Tony Goldwyn star in the exercise in savage office politics.

Bh Tilt is an attempt by Blumhouse Productions, the maker of “Paranormal Activity” and “Sinister,” to streamline the distribution process and make it more economical. Films released by the label debut in fewer theaters and tend to rely more heavily on digital promotions instead of leaning on more costly television ads. Past releases include “Green Inferno” and “The Darkness. »

Random Roles: Being in a Disney movie almost made Alison Pill quit acting

5 September 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Welcome to Random Roles, wherein we talk to actors about the characters who defined their careers. The catch: They don’t know beforehand what roles we’ll ask them to talk about.

Though still young, Alison Pill has already amassed the kind of career most actors would kill for, with dozens of roles in everything from made for TV movies to films by some of the most acclaimed directors in the world. She started in Canada as a child, working steadily in television and small film roles before moving on to appear in popular indie films like Pieces Of April and large studio projects such as Confessions Of A Teenage Drama Queen. From there, she moved into a diverse series of roles, including beloved cult films like Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World and Snowpiercer, and a starring role on divisive HBO series The Newsroom. Currently, she’s promoting the new »

Zoom Review

2 September 2016 10:45 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

One of the problems that comes from being a hardcore fan of films is that most of your time is spent trying to enjoy your passion despite the shackles of a medium that is plagued with repetition and paint-by-numbers efforts. If you see more than a dozen movies a year, it isn’t long before you’re trapped in the tedium of not simply knowing that the good guys are probably going to win, but who is going to turn out to be the double-crosser as soon as you see them, why and when the rom-com couple are going to have their second act “distancing” they have to overcome, and on and on.

This is why certain writers and directors can get a jump on popularity just off the back of putting something out that makes you sit up and notice that you have no idea what’s going to happen. »
