For decades, film and television audiences have watched their favorite stars with little thought or concern for the people standing behind them. All of that is about to change as "Strictly Background" explores the charm and determination of some of Hollywood's hardest working actors, professional "extras." Turning industry convention on its head, this humorous & heartfelt documentary follows ten background actors as they navigate their way on and off the set. Both a behind-the-scenes look at Hollywood and a character-driven film, "Strictly Background" is a dynamic exploration into the pursuit of stardom and the real life struggle to stand out. Written by Hunter Woo
For Rod Kimball, performing stunts is a way of life, even though he is rather accident-prone. Poor Rod cannot even get any respect from his stepfather, Frank, who beats him up in weekly sparring matches.
Benjamin Franklin Gates and Dr. Abigail Chase -- who found riches and romance at the end of their first hunt for national treasure -- reteam with their wisecracking partner in crime, Riley Poole, for another romp through U.
50 years from now the sun is dying and life on earth is threatened by arctic temperatures. Mankind puts together all its resources and sends a spaceship carrying a huge bomb designed to re-ignite the dying sun.
Based on a true story. After graduating from Emory University in 1992, top student and athlete Christopher McCandless abandoned his possessions, gave his entire $24,000 savings account to charity and hitchhiked to Alaska to live in the wilderness.
