The U.S. State Department says it is "sickened" by a video that purports to show the beheading of U.S. journalist Steven Sotloff, adding that the intelligence community is working to authenticate the video. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
Incredible footage shows a new volcanic eruption in southeast Iceland as a crack spews molten lava metres into the air. Lava has been spurting from a crack north of the Bardarbunga volcano since an eruption occurred on Friday (29th August) followed by a larger eruption on Sunday (1st August). The fissure slices through the 200-year-old Holuhraun lava field, between the Bardarbunga and the Askja volcanoes. The stunning footage was captured by Einar Guddman who flew for two and a half hours in a plane to reach the dangerous eruption site. The 47-year-old from Akureyri, Iceland battled windy weather and a sandstorm at to shoot the scene from a plane 500 feet above the ground.

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes Featurette - Andy Serkis Q&A
A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived.
In June 1939, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (Academy Award nominee Bill Murray) and his wife Eleanor (Olivia Williams) host the King and Queen of England (Samuel West and Olivia Colman) for a weekend at the Roosevelt home at Hyde Park on Hudson, in upstate New York – the first-ever visit of a reigning English monarch to America. With Britain facing imminent war with Germany, the Royals are desperately looking to FDR for support. But international affairs must be juggled with the complexities of FDR’s domestic establishment, as wife, mother, and mistresses all conspire to make the royal weekend an unforgettable one. Seen through the eyes of Daisy (Academy Award nominee Laura Linney), Franklin’s neighbour and intimate, the weekend will produce not only a special relationship between two great nations, but, for Daisy – and through her, for us all – a deeper understanding of the mysteries of love and friendship.
