After the jump I list the best opportunities for big screen movie crossovers.

24 Die Another Day trailer

The second 24 Live Another Day trailer is double the length of the last one, and in the case of 24 you know that “every second counts.” The hit Fox show returns this summer with a 12 hour miniseries event which takes place four years after the regular series ended. Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) has been off the grid but mysteriously resurfaces in London at the time the President of the United States lands for a visit. Does Jack, the fugitive, want to kill the President, or stop other people from doing so?

24: Live Another Day premieres May 5, check out the second trailer (and a new poster) below. Read More »

24 Live Another Day

The first teaser for 24: Live Another Day debuted during the Super Bowl, but since we’ve yet to receive a full-length trailer we’re still mostly in the dark as to what the show will actually look like. Happily, we have a slightly better idea today since Fox has revealed a big batch of stills.

The new 24: Live Another Day images feature returning characters Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) and Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub), along with lots of fresh faces played by Yvonne Strahovski, Benjamin Bratt, Tate Donovan, and more. See them all after the jump.
