NBC Buys Modern-Day Noah’s Ark Drama Produced By Robert Zemeckis

NBC has bought The Ark, a high-concept drama spec from 20th Century Fox TV and Robert Zemeckis’ ImageMovers. The project, a grounded, modern retelling of the Noah’s Ark story from the Bible, was written by Black List scribe Daniel Kunka (12 Rounds). It centers on an engineer who, after the death of his wife, has a vision to construct a ship capable of sustaining life in space.

RePost #SXSW2016 : EVERYBODY WANTS SOME, DON’T BREATHE & 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE!!!

3 great films!

Hey folks, Harry here…  I’m reposting this grouping of reviews – because DON’T BREATHE is opening today at it is an exquisite bit of suspense.  A blind waltz of fear and trepidation – and the greatest lesson you can learn… Don’t fuck with Stephen Lang.   Seriously.   Also on this particular day I saw  10 CLOVERFIELD LANE – which I still recommend watching on the same day you see DON’T BREATHE – and Linklater’s EVERYBODY WANTS SOME is now on home video where you wil come to worship it properly.   Now… let’s go back in time to March…
 
 
 
SXSW Day 1
 
I had entered the random drawing to attend the Obama Keynote at the SXSW INTERACTIVE event today – but – sadly…  was not chosen.  Not only that, but films didn’t get underway today for me till 6:30pm, when the SXSW opener… Richard Linklater’s EVERYBODY WANTS SOME.  But both Father Geek and myself were in full movie going mode.   So we paid to go see 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE at 2:20pm in a well attended matinee.   Now 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE isn’t an official film at SXSW, but since JJ Abrams will be here at SXSW…  sure… why the hell not include it into this day of cinema.
 
10 CLOVERFIELD LANE…
 
The fluffer film for SXSW 2016.   The press screening for this was at a real shit screen for me, so this worked out perfect…  especially given how well it bookended the day of film with Fede Alvarez’s DON’T BREATHE.   
 
For me, 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE’s
