The beautiful herpetologist, Amanda, dedicated to destroying the vicious beasts she helped create, leads a team of young scientists against a ruthless pack of Murdoch's armed thugs to get the coveted orchids before the snake hunts both factions down.

The film is directed by Alex Proyas. Cast: Nicolas Cage, Rose Byrne, Chandler Canterbury. In 1958, as part of the dedication ceremony for a new elementary school, a group of students is asked to draw pictures to be stored in a time capsule. But one mysterious girl fills her sheet of paper with rows of apparently random numbers instead.

Fifty years later, a new generation of students examines the capsule's contents and the girl's cryptic message ends up in the hands of young CALEB KOESTLER. But it is Caleb's father, professor JOHN KOESTLER (Nicolas Cage), who makes the startling discovery that the encoded message predicts with pinpoint accuracy the dates, death tolls and coordinates of every major disaster of the past 50 years. As Ted further unravels the document's chilling secrets, he realizes the document foretells three additional events—the last of which hints at destruction on a global scale and seems to somehow involve Ted and his son. When Ted's attempts to alert the authorities fall on deaf ears, he takes it upon himself to try to prevent more destruction from taking place.

With the reluctant help of DIANA WAYLAND (Rose Byrne) and ABBY WAYLAND, the daughter and granddaughter of the now-deceased author of the prophecies, Ted's increasingly desperate efforts take him on a heart-pounding race against time until he finds himself facing the ultimate disaster—and the ultimate sacrifice.

Academy Award winner® Rachel Weisz (The Constant Gardener), Academy Award® winner Adrien Brody (The Pianist), Mark Ruffalo (Zodiac), and Academy Award® nominee Rinko Kikuchi (Babel) star in THE BROTHERS BLOOM, a globe-trotting comedy about the last great adventure of the world's best con men.

Welcome to the world of THE BROTHERS BLOOM, where deception is an art and nothing is as it seems. The brothers have perfected the art of swindling fortunes through years of fraternal teamwork. Now they've decided to take on one last spectacular job—luring a beautiful and eccentric heiress into an elaborate plot that takes them around the world.

For as long as they can remember, the Brothers Bloom have had only each other to depend on. From their childhood in a long series of gloomy foster homes to their highflying lives as international con artists, STEPHEN (Mark Ruffalo) and BLOOM (Adrien Brody) have shared everything. Stephen brilliantly concocts intricate stories that the brothers live out, but he's still searching for the perfect con, the one where "everyone gets what they want." Meanwhile, Bloom yearns for "an unwritten life"—a real adventure, one not dreamed up by his old brother.
Eager to retire, Bloom agrees to take part in one last grand scam. He insinuates himself into the life of PENELOPE (Rachel Wiesz), a bored, single New Jersey heiress. When a genuine romance begins to blossom between them, he is reluctant to exploit her naiveté, but Penelope has already taken the bait: She impulsively joins Bloom, Stephen and their "associate," a sexy Japanese explosives expert named BANG BANG (Rinko Kikuchi), on an ocean liner to Greece. Penelope is convinced she's happened upon the adventure of a lifetime and offers to bankroll a million dollar deal. As the quartet makes their way from Athens to Prague to Mexico to St. Petersburg, Penelope quickly becomes addicted to the illicit thrills. But as Stephen's elaborate web of deceit pulls tighter, Bloom begins to wonder if his brother has devised the most dangerous con of his life.

It is a drama/fantasy film based on the novel In the Electric Mist with Confederate Dead by James Lee Burke. It is directed by Bertrand Tavernier, written by Jerzy Kromolowski & Mary Olson-Kromolowski, and stars Tommy Lee Jones in the lead role of Dave Robicheaux.

Detective Dave Robicheaux (Tommy Lee Jones)is investigating the murder of a young woman and has a chance encounter with a pair of Hollywood stars Elrod Sykes (Peter Sarsgaard) and his girlfriend Kelly Drummond (Kelly Macdonald) who are in the small town to film a Civil War film. Due to his irratic driving, Dave determines Elrod is driving his Lambourgini drunk and sets to arrest him. Elrod, objecting to being sent to jail tells Dave of a decayed corpse that he and Kelly had found up in the mountains. When Dave goes to investigate he remembers a murder he had witnessed as a child where a chained prisoner was shot in the swamp and disappeared into the bog. The discovery opens a string of events that ties to several murders in that area that had occurred recently mostly to young runaways and prostitutes. The clues seem to point to a former friend of Dave's, Julie "Baby Feet" Balboni (John Goodman) whose ties with the mafia had caused the two to drift apart and become strained enemies. Julie denies knowing the prostitute whose murder is being investigated, however Elrod's story does not corroborate, leading Dave to suspect more to the story. But with little to go on, he instead travels to the film site and meets the producer Michael Goldman (John Sayles) who states that while Baby Feet is helping to fund the film, he is not a co-producer as he had said.

Meanwhile, Dave's home life is disrupted by Elrod and Kelly who begin turning up regularly, almost every time Elrod being drunk, prompting Dave to take pity on him as he too is a struggling alcoholic. His daughter, Alafair (Alana Locke) looks up to Elrod and admires him, however his stern, but kind wife Bootsie (Mary Steenburgen) has concerns about Dave spending too much time around him. The discovery of a second body prompts the FBI to become involved in the case, and Dave is partnered with an agent Rosie Gomez (Justina Machado) whose insight into the case gives her Dave's respect and the pair team up to solve the case. Dave attends the birthday party for Goldman and though drinking Dr. Pepper, becomes terribly uncoordinated during his drive home and crashes his truck, sending him off in a daze to the forest he encounters a camp of Confederate soldiers, and their commanding officer General John Bell Hood (Levon Helm) who apparently wishes to help Dave with his journey to solve these murders. When he awakens from his daze, he learns from Gomez that his drinks had been laced with LSD. Dave's partner, Lou is found dead, apparently by shooting himself with a shotgun. Dave's queries to why Lou shot himself with the shotgun out of depression despite the easier handgun are shrugged off that he was drunk and didn't know better. Elrod drunkenly takes a boat out on a run of the swamp with Kelly, calling Dave when the pair get the boat caught in crab nets. Dave gives Kelly his coat as it is pouring rain, and a mysterious gunman shoots her in the chest, mistaking her for him. Bell offers advise regarding the murders recently and Dave moves forward, shaking off the feelings of guilt over Kelly's death. Elrod moves in for a while so Dave can be an A.A. buddy for him, and a story from an alleged pimp corroborates a suspect Murphy Doucet (Bernard Hocke) who, with his partner Twinkie Lemoyne (Ned Beatty) are responsible for the death of Dewitt Prejean, the skeleton found in the swamp, Dave arrests the Doucet who gets out on bail and kidnaps Alafair. Gomez and Dave force Baby Feet into telling them about a campsite the Doucet owns and the pair head there to capture or kill him. Gomez is startled by Doucet and instinctively shoots him. Dave plants a throw-away pistol on the unarmed villain to insure that she is cleared of any charges of murdering him. They free Alafair and return home.

Months later, Dave, who had stopped seeing visions of Bell after the case was solved determines that he was a figment of his imagination, a lingering spirit to help him through the most difficult case of his life. He moves on with his life, while Baby Feet, according to Dave was arrested for an issue that no one would have suspected, not as a mafia criminal, but as a tax dodger. Elrod too moves on with his life, leaving his alcohol behind, he gives Alafair a small role in the War film, and claims that she alone was responsible for its success. As Dave reflects on the recent events, the screen fades to black.

Natalie Raines, one of Broadway's brightest stars, accidentally discovers who killed her former roommate and sets in motion a series of shocking events that puts more than one life in extreme peril.

While Natalie and her roommate, Jamie Evans, were both struggling young actresses, Jamie had been involved with a mysterious married man to whom she referred only by nickname. Natalie comes face to face with him years later and inadvertently addresses him by the nickname Jamie had used. A few days later, Natalie is found in her home in Closter, New Jersey, dying from a gunshot wound.

Immediately the police suspect Natalie's theatrical agent and soon-to-be-ex-husband, Gregg Aldrich. He had long been a "person of interest" and was known to have stalked Natalie to find out if she was seeing another man. But no charges are brought against him until two years later, when Jimmy Easton, a career criminal, suddenly comes forward to claim that Aldrich had tried to hire him to kill his wife. Easton knows details about the Aldrich home that only someone who had been there -- to plan a murder, for instance -- could possibly know.

The case is a plum assignment for Emily Wallace, an attractive thirty-two-year-old assistant prosecutor. As she spends increasingly long hours preparing for the trial, a seemingly well-meaning neighbor offers to take care of her dog in her absence. Unaware of his violent past, she gives him a key to her home...

As Aldrich's trial is making headlines, her boss warns Emily that this high-profile case will reveal personal matters about her, such as the fact that she had a heart transplant. And, during the trial, Emily experiences sentiments that defy all reason and continue after Gregg Aldrich's fate is decided by the jury.

In the meantime, she does not realize that her own life is now at risk. A compelling novel that probes the mysteries of the human heart and mind, Just Take My Heart is Mary Higgins Clark's most spellbinding tale.

It is the eleventh book in The Dresden Files continuing series about wizard detective Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden.

The action starts as Harry's sometime nemesis Morgan shows up on his doorstep needing protection. He is accused of killing a Senior Council Member with important political connections, LaFortier. He says he has been framed, even though he was found standing above the warm corpse with knife in hand and a new bank account with a balance in excess of 6 million USD. Harry takes him in and starts to investigate. As he goes to enlist the help of the werewolves he is stalked by the Skinwalker, and a fight erupts leaving one of the Alphas dead, and another gravely wounded. Harry then asks his brother, Thomas for help in moving Morgan, who is badly wounded, to a safe location. They move Morgan to a warded rental space, and Harry continues to investigate, leaving Thomas, Mouse and Molly to guard the fugitive. He finds that a wanted poster has been placed on Craiglist giving a large reward for Morgan's death, which he believes is not the work of the White Council, who would take care of problems in-house and has no idea what Craigslist is. He also learns that the White Court of Vampires have been framed along with Morgan, the money from Morgan's account being traceable back to them.

Harry's girlfriend and commanding officer, Anastacia Luccio, finds him and tells him that she doesn't believe Morgan is responsible, and that she was worried that Morgan might try to kill Harry, thinking that he is the traitor. Anastasia Luccio discovers that Harry is helping Morgan, and we find out that Luccio and Morgan had a past of unrequited love, and that Luccio has never responded to Morgan believing it was best to stay detached. Tension between Luccio and Harry mounts. The safeplace is attacked by the White Court traitor Madeline Raith and her hireling Binder, and Thomas is taken hostage by the Skinwalker(to trade for Morgan) in the confusion. Morgan's hiding time is running out (Morgan traded in his silver Oak leaf he received for services rendered to the Summer court in exchange for the Summer Queen making him untraceable to the Wardens). Harry decides that he will need more power and binds himself to the mysterious island of power in lake Michigan, under which a layline exists that Harry can tap into if needed. He does this by meeting and fighting the spirit of the Island named Deamonreach. Deamonreach gives Harry the power of knowing everything that is happening on the island.

Harry invites the White Council, the White Court, and the Skinwalker to the island. He tells the White Council he knows who the traitor is and can prove Morgan's innocence, thinking that this would make the traitor show himself. The White Court is there to help save Thomas. The Skinwalker believes that the trade will happen. Harry also brings in the Alphas as back up and Toot toot and his fairies to help out. Once the White Court and the White Council reach the island they are immediately attacked by the traitor(who is helped by Madeline and Binder), and the Skinwalker arrives with half dead Thomas. Harry goes to save his brother as the others fight. On the way he is ambushed by Madeline Raith and Binder. Lara Raith kills Madeline and Harry defeats binder, who gives Harry a cell phone belonging to Madeline that she used to contact the Black Council. Harry succeeds in getting Thomas clear of the Skinwalker, but in doing so Thomas is thrown into the cabin with Molly and Morgan, and he is starving. Harry survives the Skinwalker with the help of Injun Joe and Toot toot. Thomas is prevented from feeding on Molly by a Quartz crystal which Harry created, with the power to create a impregnable sphere, which if taken down in anyway other than one devised by Harry, will cause an immense magical explosion, destroying anything near it but keeping the people inside of it protected. The traitor escapes, seemingly without being witnessed, so the White Council, despite the overwhelming evidence that the traitor exists, believe that it is politically necessary to execute Morgan, who surrenders.

Harry however, has the gateway to Chicago through the Nevernever staked out by a detective taking photos and by Mouse(It turns out a Foo dog is as reliable a witness as a wizard according to many on the White Council including Ancient Mai), and discovers the identity of the traitor. He is a very high placed clerk named Peabody rather then an actual member of the Council. He had been controlling both the younger Wardens, with their relatively easy to break minds, and been influencing the Senior Council through an ingredient in the ink with which they signed documents which made his influence stronger with their otherwise hardened ways. Harry goes to Morgan's trial to give this evidence, but as he does, the traitor pulls out a jar which contains a Mist spirit which has been mixed with mordite (a substance which instantly destroys anything that it comes in contact with) to make his escape. He implanted a watchword into the younger warden's minds that when uttered, they would go catatonic, easily allowing his escape. The Merlin keeps everyone calm, and the death toll is low. Harry goes to apprehend the traitor, who nearly escapes. Morgan gets free and kills the traitor before dying himself.

In the aftermath a new Senior Council member, Cristos, one who is likely a member of the Black Council is elected. So the Black Council managed to pull off their scheme despite everyone's efforts, since it is likely that their objective was to get a man on the Senior Council. We also find out Luccio's romantic feelings for Harry were manufactured by the traitor Peabody. Murphy checks out the cell phone Binder gave Harry. It turns out to have several calls to phone numbers of restaurants in the Algiers and Egypt. Probable locations of Black Council activity. The book ends on a disturbing meeting between Harry and Thomas who had been badly tortured by the Skinwalker and forced to fatally feed on several young human women and now questions his former views on feeding upon mortals and trying to avoid becoming a monster.

It is a romantic comedy film directed by Gary Winick and written by Greg DePaul and June Raphael and SNL's Casey Wilson. The movie stars Kate Hudson, Anne Hathaway, Candice Bergen, Bryan Greenberg, Chris Pratt, Steve Howey and Kristen Johnston.

Emma (Anne Hathaway) and Liv (Kate Hudson) are best friends who have planned every detail of their weddings since childhood. At the top of their bridal "must have" list: a ceremony at New York's ultimate bridal destination, the Plaza Hotel. Now, at age 26, they're both about to get married, they're about to realize their dreams, and they're about to live happily ever after. Or maybe not. When a clerical error causes a clash in wedding dates--they're now to be married on the same day!--Liv, Emma and their lifelong friendship are put to the ultimate test. Liv, a successful lawyer who is used to getting what she wants, including the perfect job and the perfect man, won't settle for anything less than the perfect wedding she has dreamed of for years.

Emma, a schoolteacher who has always been good at taking care of others, but not so much in looking after herself, discovers her inner Bridezilla and comes out swinging when her own dream wedding is imperiled. Now, the two best friends who'd do anything for each other find themselves in a no-holds-barred, take-no-prisoners struggle that threatens to erupt into all-out war. The girls both attempt to "sabotage" the other's wedding, including Liv making Emma's tan go bright red, and Emma sending Liv a "treat" of chocolate cookies in order to make her fat,so she can't fit inside her dress, showing up at one's bachelorette party and dancing suggestively with male strippers, dying one's hair blue, which ends up ruining their relationship. These shenanigans go on, then when the wedding day comes, Liv earlier gave her assistant a DVD of Emma dancing drunkenly during a Spring Break bash, but gave him the original DVD and told him to change it back, because she was finished with the fighting. He ends up ignoring her request saying, "You'll thank me one day." The DVD shows up at Emma's wedding as she walks down the aisle, making Emma angrily storm into Liv's wedding and tackle Liv. Liv bursts into tears and apologizes for ruining Emma's big day. Emma's boyfriend announces that Emma isn't the girl he thought he was marrying. Emma then tells him that he is in love with the Emma he met 10 years ago, not the Emma that she is now. She realizes that the guy she was going to marry isn't the right guy for her, and calls off the wedding. They share a hug as she takes off the ring, and he walks out of the hall. Emma and Liv make up and the wedding is restarted, this time having Emma give away Liv. During the wedding dance after Liv gets married, Emma is asked to dance by Nate (Bryan Greenberg), Liv's brother, and the two hit it off. As the film ends, Liv and Emma catch up about a year later: Emma is now married to Nate and the past is forgotten. Both ladies announce that they are pregnant, and they learn that both babies are due on the same day. This time instead of arguing, both women rejoice at being parents for the first time!

Peeling back his mythic image eleven years after his tragic death, Notorious reveals the tumultuous and all too brief journey of a blazingly talented, fiercely determined young man whose unforgettable rap stories of inner city street life, with their raw truth and vivid rhymes, became emblematic of a whole generation’s brutal reality and its dreams of escaping it for something bigger.

The story follows the young Biggie (portrayed by Wallace’s real – life son Christoper Jordan Wallace as a youngster and Brooklyn rapper Jamal Woolard as an adult) from his surprising youth as a Catholic school honor student whose proud mother (Angela Bassett) tries to keep him off the street corners to his years as a tough teenage drug dealer, and then to his life-changing move into young fatherhood, as his girlfriend Jan(Jullia Pace Mitchell) gives birth to his daughter, prompting his to go on a mission to provide for his child by any means – legal or not. But everything changes when a “freestyle” rap tape that Biggie created just for fun ends up with B.I.G. Daddy Kane’s DJ Mister Cee (Edwin Freeman), and eventually in the hands of ambitious rap impresario Sean “Puffy” Combs (Derek Luke), whose marketing savvy and production genius transform Biggie into a cultural sensation almost overnight.

Now, with his career taking off into superstar territory, Biggie finds himself with “mo’ money, mo’ problems” and is under all kinds of new pressures. His mangers, Wayne Barrow (C. Malik Whitfield) and Mark Pitts (Kevin Phillip), attempt to keep the young man’s feet on the ground and mind in the studio, as he juggles the demands of recording, fatherhood and marriage to fellow Bad Boy artist Faith Evans (Antonique Smith) not to mention his complicated friendship with fellow Junior M.A.F.I.A. member Kimberly “Lil Kim” Jones (Naturi Naughton) and the increasingly heated rivalry with West Coast rapper Tupac Shkur (Anthony Mackie).

But just as Biggie starts to come into true manhood and solidify his musical legacy as the creator of one of hip-hop’s greatest bodies of work, fate has other plans.

The film directed by Darren Aronofsky, written by Robert D. Siegel, and starring Mickey Rourke, Marisa Tomei, Evan Rachel Wood, and Ernest Miller.

Randy "The Ram" Robinson, is a professional wrestler who was a major star in the 1980s but is now years past his prime and wrestling on the weekends for various independent wrestling promotions in the Elizabeth, New Jersey area. After a show, a promoter proposes a 20th anniversary rematch with his most notable opponent, the Ayatollah (Ernest Miller), who now owns a used car dealership in Arizona. Their first match together sold out Madison Square Garden, and Randy agrees to the rematch, wishfully thinking this high-profile match could help him get back to the top.

Randy goes home and is locked out of his trailer for not paying the rent. He takes pain medication and falls asleep in the back of his Dodge Ram. The next day, he goes to work, loading boxes at a supermarket where his boss, Wayne (Todd Barry), does not hold him in high esteem. At night he visits a strip club where he has taken a liking to a stripper named Pam, stage-named Cassidy (Marisa Tomei) whose appeal to the other customers has waned due to her age. He continues the training rituals for his wrestling appearance, including steroid use and self-tanning. At his next show, Randy wrestles a brutal hardcore match, in which Randy and his opponent, Necro Butcher (Dylan Summers), use various weapons on each other including thumbtacks, staple guns, barbed wire and glass. Randy suffers numerous gashes, including a deep cut on his chest from the barbed wire. Post-match, Randy is treated for his wounds backstage, but he has a heart attack soon after and collapses.

The heart attack necessitates a bypass operation and Randy is told by the doctor that his weak heart cannot support steroids or even wrestling anymore. Randy cancels all his upcoming matches and takes a job working behind the supermarket's deli counter which he enjoys at first. Faced with his mortality, he tells Cassidy about his heart attack and tries to woo her. She warms to him at first (going with him when he buys his estranged daughter birthday presents, explaining that she has a son and plans to move to Trenton) but when Randy gets closer to her she reverts back to her rule of not dating customers, leaving him alone in the bar.

At Cassidy's suggestion, Randy visits his estranged daughter, Stephanie (Evan Rachel Wood), but she chides him for being a bad father. On his second visit to Stephanie's place, Randy brings a thoughtful gift (suggested to him by Cassidy) and blunt words about his poor, absentee parenting and says he just does not want her to hate him, and the two bond over a visit to an abandoned beachfront boardwalk. They agree to meet for dinner on Saturday.

Randy goes to Cassidy's strip club and presents Cassidy with a Thank You card for her help in repairing his relationship with his daughter. Randy tries to convince Cassidy that his affection for her is sincere but Cassidy rejects his overture. Dejected, Randy attends a wrestling match as a spectator and receives some of the love and attention he was seeking from Cassidy from the adoring wrestling fans and fellow wrestlers.

After watching a wrestling match, Randy gets drunk, snorts cocaine, and has sex with a woman, sleeping the entire next day from exhaustion and misses his dinner date with Stephanie. He goes to her house in the middle of the night, where she angrily tells him he has never been and never will be a father to her, and does not want to see him again.

Randy goes to work at the supermarket deli counter, where a fan recognizes him. Embarrassed by his job, Randy intentionally cuts himself severely in the deli meat slicer, screams at his rude boss, and quits his job.

Randy calls the promoter to reschedule the previously canceled Ayatollah match and sets out for the venue. Before the match, Cassidy unexpectedly arrives (having quit her job to be with him) and apologizes, urging him not to wrestle for the sake of his health. Randy explains that the real world is the only place he gets hurt, and the only place he belongs is in the ring, with the fans being his true family.

Randy gives an emotional speech to the crowd, and the fight begins. During the match, his heart strains, but he continues despite the Ayatollah's concern and several pleas for Randy to pin him and end the match. Noticing Cassidy is nowhere to be seen, Randy fights through the pain and slowly climbs to the top turnbuckle. Standing atop the turnbuckle, Randy is in the only place he's ever truly been happy, surrounded by the only people who truly love him, and is in his absolute glory. Now at peace with himself and his life, he prepares to dive from the turnbuckle to deliver his signature finishing move, a diving headbutt called the "Ram Jam." In the final shot, he salutes the cheering crowd and leaps from the ropes; the screen cuts to black.

For Sebastion, there are countless treasures in the ocean that he has been in search of for a long time but one that he has been searching for four years is the Spanish ship "San Cristobal" which sunk somewhere near the North Reef and is rumored to have sunk in the ocean with a lot of treasure. Sebastion believes that if he finds this treasure, this will give him and his wife the opportunity to live a better life.

Sebastion hangs out with his friend and employee Mace (Michael Graziadei)(from "Young and the Restless" and "90210") and his girlfriend Kimi (Mircea Monroe)(from "Drive"), Dani's best friend, who are a couple that have a difficult relationship because Avery tends to mess around with other women. Where Mace and Kimi have a crazy relationship, Sebastion and Dani are very much in love.

While at work, they are visited by Carlton (David Anders)(from "HEROES") and Azra (Marsha Thomason)(from "LOST"), a couple who wants to hire them for diving in the North Reef for a week because they are looking for the San Cristobal.

Of course, Sebastion has been trying for several years to find it but Carlton happens to have a map which may lead them to the treasure. So, both Sebastion and Dani agree to help the couple. The four go on various diving expeditions to find treasure.

We then get to see some of the beach life as all six individuals enjoy the beach. Dani and Kimi and Sebastion and Mace get involved in separate beach volleyball competitions. Sebastion and Mace go against their main diving competitors, Avery (Rand Holdren) who dates a girl named Kelsey (Audrina Patridge) (from "The Hills") who loves to lecture him when he gets into trouble by messing around with women.

While at a club, a random guy hits on the women and grabs the arm of Azra and Azra quickly puts him in a headlock. This raises the first red flag for Dani who becomes suspicious. The following day we learn that Carlton is not really looking for the San Cristobal. He actually helps big clients smuggle treasure to other locations. Both Carlton and Azra tell Sebastion and Dani that if they help them find the two containers, they will earn $500,000. Also, we learn that if Carlton doesn't find the containers in a week, the men will kill them. The reason why he is willing to pay them a lot of money is part of an apology because the men who hired him know the names of Sebastion and Dani and their lives are in danger too.

So, now both Sebastion and Dani are forced to help Carlton and Azra find the two containers but while they are at sea, Avery takes notice and he starts looking to find whatever they are looking for. With their lives threatened, Dani convinces Sebastion that they must look to see what is in those containers and why their lives are being threatened. Something terrible could be in those containers and that they need to check them without bringing Carlton and Azra along.

Thus, the two take their boat out to see late at night to dive and see what those containers are. What they find in the containers are not treasure but a bomb. When they return from their boat after the dive, they are greeted by Carlton and Azra have been hiding in their boat and are ready to kill them. Carlton tells him that in container one is the casing and in container two is a nuclear warhead. One without the other is useless but together creates a powerful weapon. Their goal is to create a second Pearl Harbor.

Will Sebastion and Dani be able to get some help or escape to safety or will they get killed by these terrorists?
