Potato On the Go:
No matter where you run, no matter where you hide…you can’t cheat death. This is what Final Destination has been telling us since it hit the theaters for the first time. Like many of you, I was hooked with the first one as the plot was unique and suspense-filled. It's like a slasher movie that I enjoy watching with family and friends who keep on screaming on every suspense and death scene! =D How morbid I could be? Hehe. Well, for me, there's always a room for this genre in my movie list. Let's get real, we (at least for most of us I guess) enjoy the thrill of movies like this, it's like riding the Roller Coaster or Horror Train in carnivals and theme parks! Anyway, I didn't expect the movie will have a series of installments but now, it's already on its 5th! Let's see how different this franchise will be! =)
In New Line Cinema’s “Final Destination 5,” Death is just as omnipresent as ever, and is unleashed after one man’s premonition saves a group of co-workers from a terrifying suspension bridge collapse. But this group of unsuspecting souls was never supposed to survive, and, in a terrifying race against time, the ill-fated group frantically tries to discover a way to escape Death’s sinister agenda.
The second of the Final Destination films to be shot in 3D, “Final Destination 5” is directed by Steve Quale, marking his major feature film directorial debut.

Byrne (“Dinner for Schmucks”) and Ellen Wroe (TV’s “Huge”).
Rounding out the rest of the cast are Courtney B. Vance (TV’s “Flash Forward,” “ER”), David Koechner (“The Office,” “Anchorman”) and “Final Destination” franchise icon Tony Todd.
Collaborating with Steve Quale behind the scenes are director of photography Brian Pearson (“Drive Angry 3D,” “My Bloody Valentine 3D”); production designer David R. Sandefur (“Repo Men,” “Journey to the Center of the Earth”); editor Eric Sears (“Shooter”) and costume designer Jori Woodman (“Eight Below”).
