Ric Roman Waugh’s Greenland follows John Garrity (played by Gerard Butler), a structural engineer, who is getting ready to attend a party at his wife Allison’s house where they, along with friends and their diabetic son Nathan (played by Roger Dale Floyd), plan to watch an interstellar comet pass by Earth together. However, Allison (played by Morena Baccarin) and the rest of the Garrity family are soon surprised by a sudden presidential alert that notifies them that their family has been selected for evacuation and emergency sheltering due to the fact that experts now apparently expect the comet to impact Earth and cause a cataclysmic event.

The following is a review of Gods of Egypt – Directed by Alex Proyas.

I’ve been a fan of Nikolaj Coster-Waldau ever since I first saw him in Ole Bornedal’s Nattevagten (not to be confused with the American remake, Nightwatch). I was really happy to see him get a big role in HBO’s Game of Thrones, and I’ve loved him as Jaime Lannister. It’s a great character for an actor I enjoy watching.
