CRACKLE AUGUST 2021 EXCLUSIVE & ORIGINAL
Skyfire (Premiering August 1st) – Crackle AVOD exclusive feature
A young scientist (Hannah Quinlivan) invents a cutting-edge volcanic warning system and returns to the tropical island where her mother tragically died, hoping she can prevent future deaths. The island is now home to the world’s only volcano theme park and resort, the brainchild of its reckless owner Jack (Jason Isaacs). Chaos soon erupts when the once dormant volcano starts to rumble. It’s a battle with nature to get off the island while fiery death and destruction rains down from the mountain.
Directed by Simon West (Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Con Air, The Mechanic), the film from Highland Film Group also stars Xueqi Wang (Iron Man 3) and Shawn Dou (Wolf Totem). Produced by Meridian Entertainment, Skyfire is China’s first large-scale disaster movie and debuted in December 2019. The film is written by Will Wei Bu and Sidney King, and produced by Jennifer Wenjie Dong.

Think you know your history? You haven’t heard the whole story….Did you know that high heels date back to Ancient Egypt? And what do chocolate bars have to do with the invention of the microwave oven? Each half-hour episode of The Uncommon History of Very Common Things examines the unknown, sometimes shocking, often irreverent, and always entertaining history of the everyday items that make up our lives. Using archival photos, animation, and a healthy dose of humor, each half-hour episode is made up of three stories loosely linked on a theme.
