Idris Elba - Fan Fiction - Morning Watch

(The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.)

Plus, Jim Carrey sat down for a nearly 30-minute conversation about comedy, characters and existence at the Toronto International Film Festival, and Adult Swim released the full version of the “Fathers and Daughters” song from this past weekend’s Rick and Morty.

Two of England’s best acting exports are joining forces for a survival romance about two people who escape the wreckage of a plane crash.

USA Today has our first look at some photos from the movie, as well as some quotes from the director that make me think this is the beginning of a Revenant-style campaign to make sure everyone knows how tough it was to shoot out in the elements.
