Watch the new trailer for the heroic action-thriller The Finest Hours, the extraordinary true story of the greatest small boat rescue in Coast Guard history. Presented in Digital 3D and IMAX 3D, the film transports audiences to the heart of the action, creating a fully-immersive cinematic experience on an epic scale. Directed by Craig Gillespie, The Finest Hours features an all-star ensemble cast led by Chris Pine, Casey Affleck and Eric Bana.
A heroic action-thriller, The Finest Hours takes place on February 18, 1952, when a massive nor'easter struck New England, pummeling towns along the Eastern seaboard and wreaking havoc on the ships caught in its deadly path, including the SS Pendleton, a T-2 oil tanker bound for Boston, which was literally ripped in half, trapping more than 30 sailors inside its rapidly-sinking stern. As the senior officer on board, first assistant engineer Ray Sybert (Casey Affleck) soon realizes it is up to him to take charge of the frightened crew and inspire the men to set aside their differences and work together to ride out one of the worst storms to ever hit the East Coast. Meanwhile, as word of the disaster reaches the U.S. Coast Guard station in Chatham, Massachusetts, Warrant Officer Daniel Cluff (Eric Bana) orders a daring operation to rescue the stranded men.Read More

Last July, Screen Gems invited us on the Bronx, New York set of their supernatural horror film Deliver Us from Evil. Originally titled "Beware the Night", the film is based on a book by former NYPD Detective Ralph Sarchie. Sarchie was a sixteen year veteran of the forty-sixth precinct in the South Bronx, one of the most virulently crime-ridden areas in the seventies and eighties. Sarchie was a chronicler of the occult, participating in numerous exorcisms and cases of demonic possessions. Deliver Us from Evil takes place in modern times with Eric Bana starring as Sarchie. The film is written and directed by Scott Derrickson, who has had tremendous success in the horror genre with his previous films, The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Sinister. Deliver Us from Evil costars Édgar Ramírez as Mendoza - a Catholic priest, and Joel McHale as Butler, Sarchie's NYPD partner.
We arrive on set during the middle of the night in a torrential downpour. The film was shooting where the I-95 intersects Bruckner Boulevard in the South Bronx. A crane with a lighting rig was illuminating an entire block. The cast and crew were absolutely soaked by the massive storm hitting New York City. People were huddling under tents, hiding in doorways, doing their best to set up shots in the deluge. The movie business may seem glamorous, but the reality is a lot of hard work in sometimes terrible conditions. This night was a textbook example. I felt so bad for the gaffers and production assistants running around in the freezing rain.Read More
