Katee Sackhoff and Tricia Helfer pose for 2015 Acting Outlaws Calendar

Since 2013 Actresses Katee Sackhoff and Tricia Helfer have made a charity calendar to raise funds for a good cause. Both actresses are of course famous from the Battlestar Galactica remake of 2003. On RedBubble as well as the website of their charity, Acting Outlaws, you can now buy the calendar for the sum of 36.07 euro’s. I think it is well worth it. Their poses aren’t too revealing and seem to harken back to classic pin-up photography. This year alone...

Terminator Genisys Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor

Terminator: Genisys Trailer Released

After Jurassic World and Star Wars Episode 7 another Sci-fi sequel/reboot received a trailer to woo fans. For the most part Terminator: Genisys slipped beneath my radar.

Terminator: Genisys Trailer Released Sadly, after I saw this trailer I was not convinced the movie is on the right track. It...

Avengers Age Of Ultron Trailer Released

Due to the leak of an copy of the Avengers Age Of Ultron trailer online Marvel has decided to officially release it a week earlier. Set to the tune of an alternate version of Pinocchio’s ‘there are no strings on me’ we have a 2 minute and 16 second Ultron fest. The Avengers by comparison seem defeated and divided, but of course it wouldn’t be a movie if the superheroes aren’t rock bottom during the story. At this stage it is too early...

The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 Trailer and Preview

The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 Trailer and Preview The last installment of The Hunger Games begins this autumn and it will see Katniss taking the fight to the leaders of Panem. Before the first Hunger Games movie was released I had certainly heard of the books but had not read them. I considered them little more than sci-fi chicklit. I may have been partly right, the novels do cater to a certain audience but they do manage to create an involved for its...

Autómata preview movie poster starring Antonio Banderas

Autómata Preview and Trailer Released!

It took me by surprise this morning to discover that Antonio Banderas was starring in a Science Fiction movie. It is called Automata and from the trailer it seems to be a cross between Blade Runner and I, Robot. What surprised me even more is that the trailer was very good. Internet forums are full of trolls saying that a particular work is derived from another. I don’t care, I accept that artists can be inspired by other artists as long as...

The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies Trailer

The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies Trailer Finally the first trailer for Peter Jackson’s film The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has been released. So far the director has been tight-lipped about the third and last installment of The Hobbit trilogy. The movies are of course inspired by J.R.R Tolkien’s children book The Hobbit set in Middle-Earth. I was skeptical that a film version of a rather short children’s tale would work. However, Peter Jackson has taken every...

Avengers Age of Ultron Preview

Avengers Age of Ultron Preview Comic-Con 2014 is in full swing and as every year there is simply too much news too report. Comic-con is not usually reserved for large announcements.
