Two men. One drives, the other shoots. In their prime, they were theHighwaymen; a special breed of couriers capable of ferrying anything, anywhere, anytime. But that was long ago. Now Able “Speed” Monroe and Alistair McQueen are a little worse for wear, almost obsolete…until they are called out of retirement and must cross the river of bad blood between them to deliver some very dangerous cargo for a dead President. If only they knew what is was — and why everyone else wants to kill them for it.

Composer Bernard Herrmann was often described as being ‘temperamental’ and ‘explosive’ by nature. However, very few could ever criticize his approach and dedication in regards to his work. His collaborations with director Alfred Hitchcock are today reflected upon as legendary; a clash of personalities which proved that both fire and gasoline didn’t necessarily have to end in utter devastation.

To tie in with Record Store Day UK 2018, Silva Screen Records have released a strictly limited edition 7” Ep showcasing the very best of this turbulent and tremendous partnership. The Double A Side single (SIL71566) features two tracks from Vertigo (Prelude / The Nightmare) with the flipside featuring Overture / Main title from North by Northwest. The music is perfectly executed by the highly respected City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and conducted by Paul Bateman.

Finland’s Vertigo is moving beyond Nordic Noir with an ambitious, six-part TV series about Europe’s migrant crisis which they’ll be presenting at Series Mania.

Based on the book by best-selling Finnish novelist Jari Tervo, “Layla” is the story of a 15-year-old Kurdish girl who travels the perilous migrant route from Turkey to northern Europe, where she hopes to be reunited with her older sister.

Vertigo’s Minna Virtanen and Sagafilm Nordic’s Kjartan Thor Thordarson will be looking for financing when they present the series at the Co-Pro Pitching Session in Lille. “Layla” will be directed by the Kurdish-born, Swedish helmer Karzan Kader.

Arrow Season 6 Episode 18 Review: “Fundamentals”

“Fundamentals” is an odd episode of Arrow. Overall, it’s an entertaining hour with a terrific lead performance from Stephen Amell, who has been underutilized throughout much of Season 6, despite being the lead of the series. This deep dive into Oliver’s psyche is exciting, enlightening, and sometimes even hilarious, thanks to Josh Segarra reprising his role as Adrian Chase, whom Oliver continues to hallucinate due to the Vertigo that has been planted in system by Councilman Collins, another corrupt ally of Diaz’s. However, even though I enjoyed individual moments in “Fundamentals,” from the opening action sequence of Oliver taking down

Cannes — Canneseries suggested we are “living in a golden age of global television,” said Harlan Coben, emphasizing the world “global.” Here, extrapolating from its series , are 8 trends in global drama:

1.Women Power

Women are sticking it to men. Sometimes quite literally, as in “Killing Eve,” where Jodie Comer’s Villanelle, a brilliant, if nonchalant, female assassin, finds an original use for a hair-pin and an Italian mobster’s left eye. “Bullets,” from Finland’s Vertigo, which won the sneak-peek MipDrama Buyers Summit Coup de Coeur, forefronts two strong women – an undercover cop, an ex-terrorist – in a series which is both

I would certainly want it to be a character that I could identify with.
