Hundred and TenStarring Christoph Waltz and Robert Carlyle—for @damalurSONG: A Hundred And Ten In The Shade, John Fogerty

Evander (Waltz) is a dead man walking. He’s every post-industrial cliche at once, all neatly tied up in a cheap blue suit. When the clock strikes tonight, he’ll open all his windows and bite into the pill. All ready the dreamer’s end. Tomorrow there will be another body in his bed, another set of hands at his desk.


Except Pally (Carlyle) is coming for him first. There’s nothing right or proper about the dreamer’s end. Nothing in nature or science that justifies it. Pally’s one of hundreds, thousands, raging in the dark to turn back the tide. 


The only question is: who will be left standing when the sun rises?

Red Coal Carpet
starring Christopher Eccleston and Naomie Harris, for @jazzfic
SONG: Patti Smith - Gimmie Shelter

Parents told the stories to their children, to keep them from wandering at night. The kind of stories that kept even those full-grown cowering in the dark when the dry winds blew. Everyone knew what lay beyond the walls: pain and terror and the smell of blood.
Cass Merón (Harris) knew that better than anyone.
But when the Chancellor (Eccleston) caught her red-handed, stealing into the depot to liberate more than her fair share of rations, he offered her a simple choice. She could starve to death in the river cells, like her brothers before her, or take his deal. Across the wastes, he said, lay salvation. Maybe even hope.
Cass put down her weapons and decided to start anew. The last thing anyone expected was that she would make it through the wastes alive.

BFF
starring Cobie Smulders, Kristen Bell, and Zoe Saldana, for @peasantings
SONG: Galapaghost - Rise & Fall

In high school, Janie (Saldana), Kaitlyn (Smulders), and Raya (Bell) were inseparable. They did it all: newspaper and yearbook, varsity soccer, homecoming court, the spring musical. They shared everything, secrets and crushes and homework, right up to their joint graduation party and mutual coordinated breakups with their respective sweethearts. Even their yearbook mottoes matched—Who needs a date when you’ve got a best friend?—but they went their separate ways for college. Separated by hundreds of miles, the three best friends slowly drifted apart. 
When a reunion looms, they decide it’s time to reconnect. Before Janie starts her new job in the Senator’s office. Before Kaitlyn moves to New York to try her luck. And before Raya finally starts a family with her new wife.
One last blow-out. That’s the plan. A “single ladies” week, full of almost everything they always planned to do, during all those giggly late nights over a bottle passed back and forth behind the stadium. They’ll leave their lives behind, just for one week. No consequences. No shame.
What could possibly go wrong?

Rear Window
starring Louise Brealey and Idris Elba, for @muirwolf
SONG: Veronica Maggio - Jag Kommer

In this re-imagining of the classic Hitchcock thriller, Louise Brealey plays Ellie Jeffries, a struggling director who breaks her leg during an ill-advised commission. Convinced that the accident is the perfect excuse she needs to finally get started on the script she’s been dreaming about, Ellie decides to hole up in her flat until the cast comes off.
During her convalescence, Ellie’s entire existence shrinks down to the blinking cursor and the people she watches from her windows. When her boyfriend, Lyle Fremon (Idris Elba), announces he wants to move in—the better to keep her in one piece—Ellie’s glad for the company. It’s almost like living out the romantic comedy that’s finally coming together on her computer screen.
Until the bodies start tumbling from the block of flats across the way.

SONG: Bon Iver - Michicant

On New Year’s Eve, a snowstorm blankets the city, shutting down roads across the city. 
At the airport, four women wait for their chance to go home: Annabel (Thomas) to the woman she’s not sure she wants anymore, Carrie (Smulders) to a family she hardly recognizes, Yvonne (King) to wedding plans and feuding relatives, and Elise (Fairley) to the son who’s become a stranger.

All Fall Down
starring Gillian Anderson, Lee Sun Gyun, Aisha Tyler, and Adrien Brody, for @anon (who I am pretty sure I know but won’t say because if I’m wrong: lol embarrassing, but to whom I will say &PASTA;;;;)
SONG: A Lull - Weapons for War

By the stroke of midnight on August 7, 2149, the Rising will fall.Three (Tyler) has already run the projections. In a matter of hours, the last of the rebellion will be crushed, right there in the Angeleno Valley where it began. For the nameless like her, the long game is almost over. When the Loyalist Army announces their victory, she’ll archive her work and turn her data over to the Director (Anderson). It’s nothing she hasn’t done a hundred times since the Rising began, but this time… This time the Director has promised she’ll finally be free to reclaim her name.In the ruins high above the canyon, Kenner (Brody) waits. He’s out of food. Water. The power pack on his commbox is nearly drained. He used the last of his ammunition a week before. He’s been dead since then; it just hasn’t caught up to him yet. Gunships roar along the horizon, unleashing plasma waves that will burn long after his flesh falls away. Kenner tries one last time to make contact, sending the signal as far as the commbox will reach.Hyo (Lee) knows there won’t be another chance after tonight. His contact in the Rising is dead. He saw the body himself, lying in the street outside the Low Council compound. The nexus is clogged with High Council propaganda; the few remaining voices of dissent are silenced. The end is closing fast. But Hyo has one last play to make. If he can get to the Hub, if he can bluff his way back inside, if he can get his wife to listen…

Mighty Sweet
starring Kate Winslet, Daniel Dae Kim, and Kermit the Frog, for @concertinahero
SONG: Nina Simone - Forbidden Fruit

Late in the afternoons, when rehearsals run long and Miss Piggy barricades herself in the dressing room, Kermit likes to ride his bicycle around the neighborhood and listen to people’s stories. After a few weeks, he notices that the florist, Shelley (Winslet), puts one perfect flower every day in a vase by the front door. “In case someone needs a peace offering,” she explains when Kermit asks.Once upon a time, Shelley loved a man named Joe (Kim), who made candies as sweet as his smile. But Shelley did something dumb, she tells Kermit, like forgetting to compliment Piggy’s new hairdo, only much, much worse. And even though Joe said he forgave her, Shelley couldn’t forgive herself. So she left Joe and came to the city, where she opened her flower shop and tried to forget him.Kermit can’t stop thinking about Shelley’s story or the sad look on her face whenever she says Joe’s name. When he barely reacts to  Piggy firing most of Gonzo’s chickens or to Animal eating the big velvet curtains, the rest of the gang knows something’s wrong. Kermit has no choice but to let them in on his plan: he’s going to get Joe and Shelley back together, even if it means canceling the show!

I Wish You Were
starring Nicholas Lea, Danny Pudi, Sara Gilbert, and Rashida Jones, for @notalwaysweak
SONG: Kate Nash - Dickhead

Jashish (Pudi) and Carrie Nowicki (Jones) are trying to salvage their dreams of a romantic vacation for their upcoming anniversary. But between student loans, two crappy jobs, and a real money pit of a house, it doesn’t look like they’re going to get far from their home in upstate New York. Until Carrie’s college roommate, Becca (Gilbert), calls with a surprise invitation: to come to Toronto for her impromptu wedding to her long-time, on-and-off boyfriend Paul (Lea). It seems like the perfect solution, a long romantic weekend with free food, champagne and dancing in an elegant hotel. But will the reality of squabbling soon-to-be in-laws, Jash pressed into service as videographer, Paul’s sleazy passes, Becca’s last-minute nerves, a city-wide blackout that strands them in the subway overnight, and a parade of exes remind them why they got married in the first place or drive them apart forever?

Housefly
starring Sophie Okonedo, Grace Park, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Jason Isaacs, for @concertinahero
SONG: Oh No Oh My - Walk in the Park


One-time nightclub owner Cam Gallagher (Isaacs), fresh off a ten-year stint courtesy of the South Carolina Department of Corrections and his ex-wife’s lying tongue, is about to blow back into his hometown, Columbia, where former undercover cop Marie Sinclair (Gellar) is finally facing the end of rehab. She might even make it back onto the force — provided she can pass the mandatory psych eval and drug tests, that is. Six months earlier, Marie’s incoherent, rambling, coke-fueled testimony and inevitable meltdown on the stand torpedoed prosecutor Adina Greene’s (Okonedo) already paper-thin case against Jenny Mercado (Park), Cam’s ex-wife. The latest in a long line of professional missteps and outright disasters, the mistrial was also the city’s last shot at putting the suspected serial killer behind bars. But Cam didn’t spend a decade of his life sporting dingy prison uniforms and powder painting industrial shelves to let Jenny walk away clean. He knows where all the bodies — literal and metaphorical — are buried and he’s going to make damn good use of them.That’s if Marie, Adina, or Jenny doesn’t get there first.
