After awaking in a deep pit alone, but surrounded by dead bodies, John (Sharlto Copley) begins to call out for help, whereupon a woman throws down a rope to help him out. John has no memory of what has happened, or who he is. The woman leads him to a house containing a group of other people, all of whom have no idea who they are, either. As the isolated survivors of some horrifying plague begin to investigate their surroundings, they soon discover that, while they don't know what has caused this new world they find themselves in, they are certainly not alone.

Claire Holt may have left The Originals, but it will be back for Season 2. What do you need to know about the CW vampire show?
One of the original vampires may have left CW’s The Originals, but the show must go on (and it shall! Australian actress Claire Holt who played Rebekah Mikaelson has left the show after just one season)

'The Originals' kicks off tonight, with plenty of expectations for its young and tenacious cast.
Today marks the launch of CW’s brand new Vampire Diaries, The Originals. Throughout the course of TVD, the supernatural world of Damon, Elena and the rest of the show’s characters has taken on a life of its own and part of that has been introducing the Original family – a powerful clan of vampires. The plot will thicken as viewers learn more about Klaus’ protégé Marcel and the budding struggle for the New Orleans throne. It’s going to be an intense storyline, but for star Joseph Morgan, that’s part of the fun of it – starting out fresh, with nothing but a story, and building a devoted following from there.
Joseph Morgan is eager to get the show going.
"We can't rely on Nina [Dobrev], Ian [Somerhalder] and Paul [Wesley] anymore," he says for E!News. "We've got to promote this show because if we don't then no one will! So yeah there's definitely the feeling that it's ours, but with that responsibility, it's also more satisfying. Because I jumped onto a show that was already a huge success. And I know that we're going to take some of that success...I hope. Actually we're going to take all of their success and leave them with no success!"
Immortals follows the epic tale of a blood-thirsty King, Hyperion as his brutal and murderous army travel throughout Greece, destroying everything in their path with a ruthless efficiency. As a string of villages fall to Hyperion's power, the powerful King moves closer to his ultimate goal: to unleash the power of the imprisoned Titans in order that they may triumph over the Gods of Olympus along with the rest of the human race.

It's anybody's guess what Oliver Stone was thinking by making a film about Alexander the Great that skips over nearly every historical event that earned him that moniker. Whatever his intent, in "Alexander" the director has concocted little more than a surface-skimming soap opera bloated with professorial exposition.
Star Colin Farrell, his hair dyed blonde and given a poufty 1970s "dry look," doesn't have much to work with in terms of character development because every event that shaped Alexander as a man, a leader and a warrior happens off-screen.
The film skips over his first battle commanding at his father's side, and skips over his pivotal creativity in that victory, which established his natural instincts on the battlefield. It skips over his father's murder (although two hours later Stone returns to it in a flashback), skips his ascent to the throne, pays only lip service to his mother's orders to execute his half-brother, and gets the facts wrong about the death of that boy's mother -- his father's more favored wife.
