Riddick 3 First set photo!

Riddick 3 First set photo!

It looks like the third Riddick is really happening, The movie’s star Vin Diesel has updated his Facebook page with a set photo. Expect a steady release of photo’s and news bits over the coming months. The movie also stars Katee Sackhoff and Karl Urban, I am not really sure what the latter is doing in a popcorn sci-flick but at least the inclusion of our favorite Viper pilot has gone down well enough with the fans.

Katee Sackhoff new

BSG’s own Katee Sackhoff gets confirmed for Riddick 3!

Yes, its true, our redoubtable viper pilot from BSG will make an appearance in the third Riddick movie alongside Vin Diesel (who plays Riddick just so you know). So far Katee’s post Galactica career has been alright. She was marvelous in Nip/Tuck and 24 though I didn’t really saw her as being alright in CSI. Up until this point the number of movies she has made has been limited and thus this deal can be seen as a bump even though this latest Riddick movie...

Upside Down trailer!

Upside Down trailer!

Sometime later this year we will see Juan Diego Solana’s first full feature movie Upside Down starring Kirsten Dunst and Jim Sturgess. The budget for the movie is around 50 million and it looks like it could take a shot at underdog greatness. As for the premise… Adam (Sturgess) is a seemingly ordinary guy in a very extraordinary universe. He lives humbly trying to make ends meet, but his romantic spirit holds on to the memory of a girl he met once...

Most TV-shows will start to air again in about a week so expect coverage to start again soon. As for our gadget section, as a New Year pledge I vow there will be articles! Wow,...

Prometheus trailer online!

Finally the long wait is over, after many trailers of the trailer we get the teaser that kind off explains what Prometheus is all about. Apparently is an Alien prequel! Despite Ridley’s comments to the contrary. Here is also the synopsis for those eager to know more… “Ridley Scott, director of “Alien” and “Blade Runner,” returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind...

Third Riddick movie concept art released!

Third Riddick movie concept art released!

On Vin Diesel’s Facebook page the actor has shown some concept art for the upcoming Riddick movie. This third movie is slated for a 2012 release and entitled simply as ‘Riddick’. For a few months now the actor has released snippets of concept art. I hope this movie will try to trace back its roots and have a more character driven script. So far the Riddick universe has been a mixed blessing. The second movie was perhaps not the financial...

The first official poster for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus has been released. It features a giant head which might be suggestive as to the origin of the aliens from the 1979 classic. Prometheus is set to be released on June 5th next year and I expect a teaser trailer to arrive soon. Here is the synopsis… “Ridley Scott, director of “Alien” and “Blade Runner,” returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of...

Now wait for last year

Philip K. Dick’s ‘Now wait for last year’ is going to hit the cinema

Studio’s have since a decade been in love with both the name and stories of Philip K. Dick, before the year 2000 you could literally count the number of movies inspired by him from one hand. Now it seems that almost every year one or even two movies are released that claim the great author as their inspiration. Now we can add one more novel that will be turned into a movie. It’s the 1966 classic called ‘Now wait for last year’, strangely...

Guy Pearce in MS One: Maximum Security

Lockout gets new title – MS One! **Update – More Screenshots!**

About a week ago we showed the title for the Luc Besson written sci-fi movie Lockout. It’s low-budget action flick set for next year. The production company has however now decided upon a new title, it’s MS One: Maximum Security or Maximum Security One. The title change is probably due to wanting to give the movie a more sci-fi kind of name. The movie stars Guy Pearce (La Confidential) and Maggie Grace (Lost). The film has been directed by James Mather and Stephen St....

New Battleship Trailer!

New Battleship Trailer!

For may 18th of 2012 the movie Battleship is scheduled to be released. Though it certainly has been announced  a while ago, so far I  felt this franchise was a joke. Hollywood bought up the names of board games and tries to turn them into light-hearted action flicks. nonetheless Peter Berg is attached to direct and has made movies such as Virtuality and Hancock, and yes they weren’t great either. The premise of this movie is ‘Let’s copy Transformers’ and that’s it. Until this movie comes out and scores...

Chris Pine gets to practice his ‘KHAAAaaan’!

Chris Pine gets to practice his ‘KHAAAaaan’!

After weeks of speculation the rumors have been finally debunked, Star Trek 2 will get Khan Noonien Singh as its probable main antagonist. To many this comes as no surprise, as it is a smart choice for die hard trekkies and the villain has lots of appeal to non-regular Star Trek viewers. Khan is of course famous from Star Trek 2 The Wrath of Khan in which he manages to obtain the deadly weapon ‘Genesis’, As his first appearance in Star Trek...

1st Lockout Trailer!

It has been one of those days, during the weekend you travel the nets for search of news and come up nothing, and then on Monday… bang, you got three articles. Now we got the trailer for Lockout, a movie I have previously never heard of. Lockout is directed by James Mather and Stephen St. Leger, two people I have never heard of either. Lockout was also co-written by Luc Besson, and that sets of the chimes in my head....

Doug Liman, the director of The Bourne identity and Mr and Mrs Smith, is set to direct a new sci-fi movie entitled ‘All you need is Kill!’ based on the 2005 novel with similar title from author Hirsohi Sakurazaka. The movie has been rumored for some time now and it seems that Tom Cruise is now attached to play the male lead. The deal has not been signed yet but it is expected to done so soon. Tome Cruise is back for...
