At this point you probably have a pretty good handle on the style of a Paul WS Anderson movie — he turns out one b-movie after another that use affordable effects, attractive stars and genre concepts to lure in audiences. And the audiences always seem to show up, making Anderson one of the more reliable directors from a business perspective.
Here, he changes things up a bit for Pompeii. The attractive cast is there (Kit Harinton, Carrie-Anne Moss, Emily Browning, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Paz Vega) as are the big digital effects and gritty but pretty violence. But there’s also a real historic backdrop — the destruction of the ancient city of Pompeii after the explosion of the volcano Vesuvius — giving the story a real weight. Will it work? Get some idea via the new trailer below. Read More »
One of the main challenges producers faced in bringing back the hit show 24 and its hero Jack Bauer was making the return an event worthy of the original show. Since Bauer, played by Kiefer Sutherland, has saved the country and world numerous times, 24: Live Another Day has to do something special.
Turns out the first part of that escalation will be a wholly new setting. When the show comes back in May 2014 for a 12-episode run, Jack Bauer will be in London and four years will have passed since his last adventure with Counter Terrorism Unit. Read More »
Jack Bauer will officially live another day. The counter-terrorism superhero who worked his way through eight seasons of 24-hour madness before the series ended in 2010 will return in May 2014. The new show is a 12-hour limited event called 24: Live Another Day. Kiefer Sutherland has officially signed on to return to the role, which will follow the same 24-hour format of the original series, but condensed to 12 hours, with uneventful hours skipped.

Update: Entertainment Weekly has learned that the ”limited event series” in the works for 24 is actually an order for 13 one-hour episodes. While 24 has always functioned as a 24-hour story spread over 24 episodes, 13 episodes is a full season for a lot of television shows. So it will be interesting to see how developing 24 as a 13-episode limited event series will change the franchise.
Since 2007, we’ve written over three dozen posts on a possible 24 movie. It was something the creators were talking about while the show was still in production. Later it got pushed as an “end of series” theatrical movie. But that never happened, and the series has struggled to get a green light.
Most recently, Training Day director Antoine Fuqua dropped off the project because, according to Fuqua, Kiefer Sutherland‘s busy TV schedule got in the way of it happening. Today we learned that Sutherland’s Fox television show Touch has been cancelled after two seasons. And while this might not have been enough to bring Jack Bauer to the big screen, it may mean a small screen return.
