To this generation, Elaine Stritch is probably best known for playing Alec Baldwin’s overbearing mother on “30 Rock.” Before she was Colleen Donaghy, however, Stritch already had quite the résumé. In a showbiz career that’s now spanned roughly seven decades, she’s done it all, from movies, to television, to radio, to cabaret. Stritch cemented herself as a performing legend on the Broadway stage, starring in countless plays and finally winning a Tony for her one-woman show back in 2002.

A young couple fights to survive one night-turned-nightmare...➨ Join us on Facebook http://facebook.com/FreshMovieTrailersA young couple fights to survive one night-turned-nightmare. Driving to a music festival, Tom and Lucy have plans to stay at a countryside hotel. But with hotel signs leading them in circles and darkness falling, they soon become lost in a maze of country roads...and the target of an unknown tormentor. Reminiscent of vintage psychological thrillers and bolstered by newcomers Iain De Caestecker and Alice Englert in its main roles, In Fear plays out in real time and hinges on a claustrophobic, unrelentingly tense visual style. Looking to shed pretense and genuinely scare his actors, Lovering withheld the script and often concealed what was about to happen to them. Add a dark forest, and the fear became real. Though propelled by visceral thrills, the film transcends genre and offers a study in fear itself, creating a cerebral fable in which fear—of the dark, of the unknown, of ourselves—governs our nature, compels our choices, and may well seal Tom and Lucy's fateIN FEAR TrailerWritten and Directed by Jeremy LoveringStarring Alice Englert (BEAUTIFUL CREATURES, GINGER & ROSA), Iain De Caestecker (AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.) and Allen Leech (DOWNTON ABBEY)Premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film FestivalRelease Date : in UK theaters Next Friday, November 15IN FEAR Trailer© Studio CanalMore Scifi Trailers ➨ http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLA82E1CA18F1F37B3More Horror Trailers ➨ http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLA98D9DA9C4070096Subscribe now 2 get the best and latest horror and sci-fi movie hd trailer, clip, scene and making-of video !

You have to admit, Arizona’s home to some odd animals: the Gila monster and chuckwalla, the coatimundi and the javelina — and at one time, to a greater extent than it is now — the ostrich.

The classic “South Pacific,” opening Friday at The Palms Theatre in Mesa, is considered by many as one of the finest musicals ever written, thanks in part to one of the most romantic scores of all time and the fact that it won all ten of the Tony Awards it was nominated for. See it March 6, and a portion of your ticket cost will benefit Mesa United Way.

Wherever I go in the country, or the world for that matter, if there is a music-related site I take the trouble to visit it. When I was in Rio de Janeiro, I made a beeline for Garota de Ipanema Café and Bar, where the great bossa nova song “The Girl From Ipanema” was written. Last year, while in Nashville, I visited the new Johnny Cash Museum and in New York strolled by the Brill Buildings, where folks like Carole King (“Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”) and Ellie Greenwich (“Da Doo Ron Ron”) wrote the songs we remember from the 1960s.
