Star Trek Video Game (2013) behind the scenes footage from Namco Bandai!

Game developers Namco Bandai have posted this ‘making of’ trailer for their upcoming Star Trek Video Game on Youtube. When I say ‘making of’ it is actually a new trailer with commentary from developers and studio officials. I must say it is the best trailer for the game I have seen so far. The trailer highlights the co-op elements and suggests that not only have Captain Kirk and Commander Spock different personalities that will show in the storyline but their style of gameplay is...

Andrew Niccol’s sci-fi flick ‘The Host’ preview!

Andrew Niccol’s sci-fi flick ‘The Host’ preview!

This March Andrew Niccol will release his latest movie The Host based on the novel with the same title written by Stephanie Meyer (famous from the Twilight Saga). I must admit that I was only vaguely aware of the movie and so far tried to avoid because of its association with the afore-mentioned Twilight writer. However, upon reading the synopsis and viewing the trailer I think it is at least worthy of proper preview. In essence the story resembles others relying on teenage-angst and...

New Star Trek Video Game Trailer!

We’re calling it the Star Trek Video Game because it doesn’t have an official subtitle to distinguish it from the 2009 movie. STVG has been getting the same kind of buzz among gamers as the upcoming J.J. Abrams movie Star Trek Into Darkness scheduled for release in May this year. The Star Trek Video Game is itself scheduled for a April 23rd release on PC, Xbox 360 and...

Total Recall - Three breasted girl

Total Recall (2012) Movie Review!

This summer the remake to the 1990 movie Total Recall from Paul Verhoeven was released in theaters. Frankly it was a remake nobody was really waiting for as the original starring Arnold Schwarzenegger is just brilliant. So instead of a movie that adopts a Phillip K. Dick story that has not yet appeared on the big screen we get movie based on one that already has left a big legacy. The remake also choose do away with the whole Mars subplot and...

Neuromancer movie may star Mark Wahlberg and Liam Neeson!

A Neuromancer movie has been in the making almost since 1989, after a few years of Hayden Christensen and Joseph Kahn we got word that Vincenzo Natalie (Cube, Cypher) is attached to the project. That was a major relief to fans of Neuromancer as it was believed he may handle the subject appropriately. The last thing fans want is for this movie to get a PG-13 rating, they want an R movie and nothing less. Despite Natalie’s involvement things quickly grew quiet...

9 New Total Recall Pictures!

The Total Recall Remake starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel is set for an Friday the 3rd release and as such we are privy to a few more pictures from the movie. This remake so far has not really managed to get my buzz going and that is due to several reasons. The first reason being that the Paul Verhoeven 1990 original is absolutely brilliant and has in my opinion aged well. The movie just about provokes every hollywood blockbuster released....
