Jackson surveying how the world might end, Brendan Fraser digging deep to study what really lies beneath Egypt, actor, auteur director Eli Roth testing the nature of evil, Academy Award® winner Morgan Freeman investigating the possibility of a parallel universe, Maggie Gyllenhaal exploring why sex is fun, Lost and Avatar star Michelle Rodriguez asking how we might survive an alien attack and Morgan Spurlock seeing if living as a primitive caveman would actually improve our health.
