John Connor [Celluloid 04.17.18] post apocalyptic scifi horror action thriller fantasy adventure

Season 3 of Syfy's 12 Monkeys series follows the journey of a time traveller from the post-apocalyptic future who appears in present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will nearly destroy the human race.

12 Monkeys continues the journey of James Cole (Aaron Stanford) a man sent back in time to eradicate the source of a deadly plague and his partner brilliant virologist Dr Cassandra Railly (Amanda Schull). While attempting to untangle an insidious conspiracy that's been spun throughout centuries the duo embark on a desperate search across time to find the man responsible for the apocalypse--a time traveller who calls himself the Witness.


In The Commuter, Liam Neeson stars as Michael, an insurance salesman whose commute home suddenly takes a dangerous turn.

After being confronted by a mysterious stranger (Vera Farmiga), Michael must race against time to uncover the identity of a passenger on his train, as he's swept into a conspiracy with life-and-death stakes for himself and his fellow passengers.

Van Etten, a pharmaceutical entrepreneur, tests drugs on bull sharks in hopes to extract their antibodies to cure human diseases. Before he can continue with his experiment, he tries to enlist Misty Calhoun, a shark conservationist, and other scientists to lead and endorse this project.

The drug-enhanced sharks quickly begin to adapt and learn new hunting skills. The humans lose control over the laboratory and now they have to fight to survive.

Adapted from C.K. Stead s novel Smith s Dream, Sleeping Dogs almost single-handedly kickstarted the New Zealand New Wave, demonstrating that homegrown feature films could resonate with both local and international audiences, and launching the big-screen careers of director Roger Donaldson (No Way Out, Species) and Sam Neill (Jurassic Park, Possession).

Neill in his first lead role in a feature plays Smith, a man escaping the break-up of his marriage by finding isolation on an island off the Coromandel Peninsula. As he settles into his new life, the country is experiencing its own turmoil: an oil embargo has led to martial law and civil war, into which Smith reluctantly finds himself increasingly involved.

Co-starring Warren Oates (Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia) as the commander of a US army unit drawn into the conflict, Sleeping Dogs is simultaneously a political thriller, a personal drama and a true landmark in New Zealand cinema.

A cover-up that spanned four U.S. Presidents pushed the country's first female newspaper publisher and a hard-driving editor to join an unprecedented battle between the press and the government.

The Post is Spielberg's love letter to American journalists past, about a time when there seemed to be standards and integrity.
