War On Everyone Trailer

Terry Monroe and Bob Bolaño are cops who seek their own form of justice. If a criminal is making money from some illegal scheme, they the ones who will be taking at least part of the cash. Their boss is used to them coming up against various allegations such as corruption and assault but so far they've always managed to keep their badges.

Their home town of New Mexico is also home to their new target but it quickly becomes apparent that the officers might be out of their league. When the local race track is robbed, three of the robbers are found dead but the driver makes a get away with the substantial loot. Terry and Bob begin their usual undercover lines of questioning and they find out that the heist was arranged by a British man names James Mangan. Now the search is on for them to find Mangan - and more importantly the cash he stole - before he makes a getaway or the straight cops on the force find and arrest him.

War On Everyone is written and directed by John Michael McDonagh

True Blood Recap: Bon Temps Residents Finally Get Closure - Through Murder

Anna Paquin Rutina Wesley Stephen Moyer Alexander Skarsgard

Another episode of True Blood, another ten or so shockers – as the show circles the drain, the writers are throwing shocker after shocker at us. So who killed whom in this episode? Read on to find out (or get majorly spoiled, if that's your thing.)

Alexander Skarsgard
Eric is back to his creepy old self. Oh joy.

Well, first of all, let’s talk about Eric for a moment, because who doesn’t love a bit of Eric? He and Pam finally arrived at Sarah Newman’s house after she had been seeing visions of Jason Stackhouse as the Grim Reaper (yes, this plot requires some major dedication). But instead of killing Sarah, a sick, sick Eric fed from her instead, curing his Hep V almost instantly. Yay Eric… maybe. He’s still a Level 100 creep, tbh.

"True Blood" Substitutes Fakeout For Actual Plot Development [Recap]

Alexander Skarsgard Ryan Kwanten

At this point in True Blood history, the show has done pretty much every TV cliché, and the plot has gone out the window some time ago. Last night, however, True Blood dared venture where it has scarcely ventured before – the same-sex hookup. Well, sort of. Spoilers ahead – big ones.

Ana Paquin
Ana Paquin is pretty great, but the writers need more to keep viewers interested.

When the episode started with a shot of Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) fans knew something was off. After all, the last time we saw Eric, he was being incinerated by the Arctic sunrise (longtime fans are great at suspending disbelief.)

Taylor Swift Meryl Streep Jeff Bridges Alexander Skarsgard

Taylor Swift has accepted a role on the upcoming movie version of The Giver, the popular 'utopian future' novel by author Lois Lowry. The film, a joint production between The Weinstein Company and Walden Media, already has an impressive cast lined up, including Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, Brenton Thwaites, Alexander Skarsgard and Katie Holmes, with Swift joining the film in an unspecified role.

Taylor Swift
Swift is contiuing her push to become an actress

Lowry's novel tells the story of a utopian society that gradually appears more dystopian as the story progresses, and is told through perspective of nearly-12-year-old Jonas (Thwaites). In the immaculately organised future, people are assigned positions that they will hold on to for the rest of their loves, and Jonas is to be given the distinction of Receiver of Memory; the man responsible for holding all knowledge of the pre-determined present. Upon meeting the previous 'Receiver,' known as The Giver, he is presented with a wealth of knowledge and with it, a moral dilema of whether to remain with his current society, or escape with his newfound information and live freely for the first time.

Prince Harry Alexander Skarsgard

Prince Harry took his Antarctic mission training to the next level last night (17 Sept.) as he endured a night of freezing temperatures and fast winds, similar to the ones he will soon me facing on a daily basis, by spending the night in a freezer.

Both Harry and Swedish-born Alexander, who will be racing against the Prince and his Commonwealth teammates as part of a crew representing the US, will race for 200 miles through one of the harshest environments on Earth and used the facility, which normally tests the durability of vehicles, to test themselves. According to the BBC, they were subjected to temperatures of -35C and wind speeds of 45 mph in the Nuneaton testing centre, as they prepared themselves for conditions that could be much worse when they are down in the icy tundra.

You may have thought we were going to report on Prince Harry getting home from a night out in an exotic location and bedding down in a fridge to cool off, but fear not, it's not another one of the royal's famous stunts - well, it is sort of.

The 29-year-old is set to race with a team of injured British servicemen and women against the United States and Commonwealth groups in November - though this is no ordinary race. In temperatures of minus 35C with wind speeds of 45mphs, the teams will trek across the South Pole this winter.

Patron of the Walking With The Wounded charity, Harry spent the night in a giant freezer this week to prepare for the gruelling conditions in Antarctica.

Straw Dogs Review

Very Good
This remake of Sam Peckinpah's 1971 British thriller is deeply unpleasant but very well-made. It's also bravely packed with all kinds of mixed messages that force us to think about some extremely difficult themes.

Hollywood screenwriter David (Marsden) moves to the backwater Mississippi home of his actress wife Amy (Bosworth), who is immediately sucked back into local life. This includes her former flame Charlie (Skarsgard), who is now a contractor working on David and Amy's barn with his chucklehead hunting buddies (Coiro, Powell and Lush). But soon, the tension between Charlie and Amy erupts into sexual violence, as David is taunted about his manhood. And a simple-minded guy (Purcell) turns out to be the catalyst for an eruption of violence.

Generation Kill Review

In their seven-part Iraq War miniseries adaptation of Evan Wright's book Generation Kill, David Simon and Ed Burns roll up a quiverful of arrows to fire off at various topics, ranging from the rampaging adrenaline of young men at war to the supreme idiocy of the invasion itself. However, the bright and gleaming theme running through most of these hard-bitten episodes has the filmmakers illustrating an age-old military maxim: Soldiers are often much more likely to be killed by the decisions of their submoronic leadership than they are by actions undertaken by the enemy. When that enemy is as pathetic a force as Saddam's Republican Guard, and the American officer corps obsessed more with the idea of taking Baghdad at warp speed than properly clearing the territory they're pushing through (both points made time and again in this series), that maxim is even more true than usual.

Wright was a Rolling Stone reporter who somehow got himself embedded in the First Recon Marine unit that was frequently at the very point of the entire American military machine rolling into Iraq in 2003. In the capable hands of Simon and Burns, his story of these turbo-trained alpha-male hunter-killers becomes something unlike most any other film project about the war. It opens in the sands of Kuwait, with the platoons tussling in the sand like overgrown boys, primed with teeth-bared intensity to launch themselves at Saddam's forces; only, in the manner of Jarhead, that great battle never quite seems to come.
