Corey Stoll stars in the upcoming FX vampire-horror drama 'The Strain' and claims it's entirely different from anything we've seen before.
The Strain is based on Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan's novel trilogy of the same name. The series follows a group of humans as they attempt to contain an outbreak of vampires New York. Corey Stoll stars as one of the scientists sent to deal with the outbreak.

Neil LaBute adapts his bracingly astute play into a series of scenes that make us question how men and women ever come together to make a relationship work. The central idea is that we hurt each other even when we don't mean to, and through a series of face-offs between a man and his ex-girlfriends, the film leaves us wondering what we might have done to our own partners along the way.
At the centre is a writer (Brody) in his 30s, who wants to clear away his relational baggage before he gets married. He flies first to Seattle to meet his school girlfriend Sam (Morrison). She's now married with kids, and he wants to talk about their break-up. "You ended it," she corrects him. And he finds his memories equally unreliable as he visits Tyler (Maestro) in Chicago, Lindsay (Watson) in Boston, Reggie (Kazan) back in Seattle again and Bobbi (Bell) in Los Angeles. While zig-zagging across America he begins to realise that he was always the problem.
As the scenes unfold, Brody's unnamed character reveals himself as weak, shallow and self-absorbed, but also relentlessly charming. it's a brave, transparent performance that takes on resonance as he begins to understand that he's flawed and, even worse, ordinary. Opposite him, the women are all variations on a fantasy: the good girl, the sex pot, the experienced older woman, the flirty little sister of his best friend, the brainy hottie. They're superbly well-played by these actresses; Watson's piercing honesty is the stand-out, while Kazan's role is the most haunting.

Not long since the harrowing and almost fatal birth of their daughter Renesmee, newly born vampire Bella Cullen nee Swan and her new husband Edward have even more deadly drama to contend with. With prestigious Italian vampire coven the Volturi led by Vampire Irina accusing the rapidly growing Renesmee of being a demon child, Bella and Edward have no time to enjoy married life and bring her up together like regular parents. When their homelife is threatened by those who wish only to protect themselves, they realise that they must band together a formidable army to fight the Volturi down in a battle if they wish to save the life of their mortal child.
This much-adored vampire love story finally comes to a close in one of the most dramatic conclusions of fantasy fiction ever written. Based on the best-selling novels by Stephenie Meyer, 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2' has been directed by 'Part 1's director Bill Condon ('Dreamgirls', 'Gods and Monsters') with screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg (who has written all of the other screenplays for the blockbuster series) working alongside him. This final instalment is set to become a major box office hit with its release on November 16th 2012.
Starring: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Mackenzie Foy, Peter Facinelli, Dakota Fanning, Kellan Lutz, Maggie Grace, Ashley Greene, Nikki Reed, Michael Sheen, Elizabeth Reaser, Jackson Rathbone, Jamie Campbell Bower, Boo Boo Stewart, Joe Anderson, Billy Burke, Lee Pace, MyAnna Buring, Christopher Heyerdahl, Noel Fisher, Alex Meraz, Rami Malek, Cameron Bright, Mia Maestro, Charlie Bewley, Christian Camargo, Angela Sarafyan, Julia Jones, Daniel Cudmore, Tinsel Korey, Judith Shekoni, Chaske Spencer, Casey LaBow, Kiowa Gordon, Bronson Pelletier, Omar Metwally, Tracey Heggins, Andrea Gabriel, Toni Trucks, Lisa Howard, Patrick Brennan, Tony Bentley, Valorie Curry & JD Pardo.
After their reckless marriage ceremony and the traumatic near-death-experience that was the birth of their daughter Renesmee in 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1', newly turned vampire Bella Swan and Edward Cullen think they have overcome the worst. However, 'Breaking Dawn Part 2' forces them to face a vicious battle with the Volturi after they hear a false claim the rapidly growing Renesmee is an immortal child; the conception of which is outlawed due to fact that immortal children can become out of control and dangerous. Bella and Edward must protect their daughter and themselves from assassination from the Volturi and find a way to prove that Renesmee is not in fact immortal.
Bella Swan is finally a vampire. She discovers that the world seems somewhat brighter now and learns about the heightened senses that vampires have. Her body temperature now matches Edward's, so she no longer finds him cold to the touch. She takes quickly to vampire life - very quickly, to the surprise of the Cullens, who were anticipating that it would take decades - even centuries - for Bella to adjust.
Adam is a wealthy businessman and an amateur opera singer who aspires to a more cultured lifestyle. Despite his love for opera, Adam's friends tease him, saying he's no more than a 'city suit' and to prove them all wrong, Adam decides to put on an opera at his lavish stately home in the country side.

34 years ago, The Poseidon Adventure rode the trendy disaster meme of its day to stellar box office and numerous Oscar nominations. Today, Poseidon sits poised to ride the current effects meme to similar financial reward and perhaps some technical nods to boot. What it probably won't see is acclaim for its dialogue, story, or characters, but those laurels largely eluded its predecessor as well.
As with its forerunner, Poseidon opens with an introduction to its namesake, a massive luxury liner, and its passengers, which in this installment include an ex-mayor/firefighter (Kurt Russell), his daughter (Emmy Rossum), her beloved (Mike Vogel), a gambler (Josh Lucas), a jilted lover (Richard Dreyfuss), a stowaway (Mía Maestro), an inevitably hot single mom (Jacinda Barrett), her inevitably adorable tyke (Jimmy Bennett), and a waiter (a completely wasted Freddy Rodríguez). If you think reading a list of these stereotypes is tiresome, watching them establish their personas is more so.

Figgis, who earned a Best Director Oscar nomination for Leaving Las Vegas in 1996, appears to have gone a little funny in the head last year with his inexplicable and nearly dialogue-free The Loss of Sexual Innocence. Now he's fully gone off the deep end with what may be the most ambitious experiment ever: Time Code.

Most movies about the lives of famous artists never provide a true sense of what drove the person's creativity. Even in a strongly acted, strongly directed biopic like 2000's "Pollock," for example, the closest it came to explaining why heavily splattered canvases were a breakthrough in modern art was when the painter's wife cryptically proclaimed, "You've done it, Pollock! You've cracked it wide open!"
But in "Frida," a transporting cinematic experience about the life and work of Mexican surrealist Frida Kahlo, director Julie Taymor captures the very essence of Kahlo's creative process through a wondrously rich, freeform visual language that fuses the events of her life with the imagery in her paintings so vividly that the artist's work may take on a striking new significance for anyone who sees the film.
Passionately played by Salma Hayek, who has been personally shepherding this project for seven years, Kahlo comes to life in this picture as a complicated, dynamic, proud and intelligent woman whose frequent hardships informed her art. Opening when she was a plucky high school girl (36-year-old Hayek passes for 16 with remarkable ease), Frida is established as a young woman with a spicy individuality even before the 1925 bus wreck that irreversibly altered her life.
