And as such you can expect a number of news tidbits in the coming days. Right now I have the new trailer for the upcoming Star Trek video game scheduled to be released alongside the movie sequel in May 2013. Star Trek is in development for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Warehouse 13 ‘There’s Always a Downside’ Preview!

Warehouse 13 ‘There’s Always a Downside’ Preview!

Last weeks episode of Warehouse 13 entitled ‘Personal Effects’ was considerably better than the seasons first two, so for once I can say I am really looking forward to the next iteration of this show in which Steve will have to become familiar with the side effects of his newly found non-death. Unfortunately, going from the promo pics and the synopsis it would seem that Jaime Murray will once again not grace us as H.G. Wells in Warehouse 13. Her absence has been duly noted by fans on the net. Here is the synopsis… The team suspect that an artifact is...

J.J. Abrams ‘Revolution’ Preview!

J.J. Abrams ‘Revolution’ Preview!

On September 17th Warner Brothers and Bad robot Productions will begin airing their new sci-fi series ‘Revolution’. It’s premise rests on a dystopian future wherein all electricity components have failed to work and people are essentially pushed back into a sort of Mad Max style dark age. The series has been created by Eric Kripke (Supernatural) and is produced by J.J. Abrams. From what I can tell the story takes place in two timelines, one in the near future that deals with the immediate aftermath of the ‘Blackout’ and follows Rachel Matheson (Elizabeth Mitchell) and Ben Matheson (Tim Guinee) while the other timeline takes place 15 years after...

Neuromancer Concept Art Revealed!

Neuromancer Concept Art Revealed!

The first concept art of Vincenzo Natalie’s Neuromancer has been revealed on the site of the movies production company – GFM Films. It has been made by Amro Attia who has worked before with director Natalie. Now it seems that the movie is officially in pre-production, whether it will star Mark Wahlberg and Liam Neeson as reported last week remains to be seen, that will become clear once principal photography starts. I expect that to occur in the autumn. The budget for the movie has been estimated at around 60 million, which isn’t a lot but considering Cypher was made with just 7.5 million, but one can expect Vincenzo Natalie...

Continuum Season Finale Endtime Review!

Continuum Season Finale Endtime Review!

Endtime is the finale of the first season of Continuum. After ten episodes I can categorically say that I want more. Most TV-shows that are considered great have had worse quality first seasons than Continuum, Endtime is in fact the best TV hour since Game of Thrones season 2 episode ‘Blackwater’. I might add that though Continuum started out as a straightforward time-travel show this last episode of the first season is a real mind-fuck that not only sheds new light on earlier events but will also keep fans arguing until the second season. The plot of ‘End time’… The episode starts with Liber8...

Looper International Poster Revealed!

Looper International Poster Revealed!

After Dredd yesterday Looper has also gotten a new poster (see below). Looper stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt and Piper Perabo. The movie is scheduled for a late September release. The synopsis for Looper is as follows… In the futuristic action thriller Looper, time travel will be invented – but it will be illegal and only available on the black market. When the mob wants to get rid of someone, they will send their target 30 years into the past, where a “looper” – a hired gun, like Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) – is waiting to mop up. Joe is...

Dredd starring Karl Urban gets it’s final poster!

Dredd starring Karl Urban gets it’s final poster!

Dredd has already been previewed at last months Comic-Con were it recieved favorable reviews. The movie is set for a September 21st release date and as such the final poster has been revealed (see below). Dredd stars Karl Urban, Lena Headey and Olivia Thirlby. Here is the synopsis for Dredd. The future America is an irradiated waste land. On its East Coast, running from Boston to Washington DC, lies Mega City One- a vast, violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets.  The only force of order lies with the urban cops called “Judges” who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and...

Warehouse 13 ‘Personal Effects’ Preview!

Warehouse 13 ‘Personal Effects’ Preview!

The next episode of Warehouse 13 is entitled ‘Personal Effects’. And from the trailer below we know Myka, Pete and Artie have to fetch no less than six artifacts. Sadly it would also appear that Jaime Murray won’t reprise her role as H.G. Wells in this episode. I am starting to think she might not be so ‘regular’ after all. The character of Leena (Genelle Williams) has a larger role during in the last episode which I thought was quite OK, perhaps the shows creators can attempt to broaden her character out a bit. So far she has been a...

Neuromancer movie may star Mark Wahlberg and Liam Neeson!

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 again, funding seemed to be the major problem. At last it was rumored he wouldn’t even direct but just produce the...

9 New Total Recall Pictures!

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. The nudity and the gore aren’t even the best thing. The special effects of Mars and the mind-bending plot twists...

Continuum Season 1 Finale ‘End Times’ Preview!

Next Sunday the last episode of the first season of Continuum will air on Showcase, the episode is entitled ‘End Times’. The story seems to deal with the possibility of altering history. We already know that the so-called grandfather paradox isn’t valid in the Continuum universe as Kellog’s grandmother was killed yet it didn’t influence his existence. Now, Kiera is going to try and prevent a terrorist attack from happening, and we are really going to find out whether an important event in history can be prevented. From the looks of the stills below and the previous promotional trailer we can see that...

Warehouse 13 – An Evil Within – Review!

Warehouse 13 – An Evil Within – Review!

An Evil Within is the second episode of the fourth season of Warehouse 13 and it unfortunately continues the creative slowdown that seeped into the third season. The plot of An Evil Within… This episode has two main storylines. The first follows Myka (Joanne Kelly) and Pete (Eddie McClintock) as they try to find out why people are behaving in an hysteric way and claim to see monster with tentacles. Eventually Pete and Myka uncover that somebody is avenging the death of his fiancé by using an artifact in such a way that everybody things the victim is a monster and should...

Continuum Family Time Review!

Continuum Family Time Review!

Family Time is the ninth and second to last episode of continuum’s first season. Unlike previous episode it is set almost exclusively on Alec’s farm. The episode acts a jump-board to the season finale ‘Endtime’ of next week. As such it offers less action and more drama as multiple plot threads need to be advanced. The plot of Family Time… Carlos (Victor Webster) and Kiera (Rachel Nichols) have come to visit the farm of Ann Sadler and Roland Randol to investigate the purchase of 1500 kg of ammonium nitrate. Alec (Erik Knudsen) and Kiera are surprised to see each other but Alec diverts suspicion by stating he recognizes...

Alphas ‘The Quick and the Dead’ Preview!

It looks like SciFiEmpire.net is moving up in the world, now that the site is getting an excellent number of readers everyday I am handed the information that you all read instead of having to scour the internet to find it. After multiple requests for interviews of some important actors and requests to urgently review promotional material I can now add Alphas to the list as well. Below you can find the promotional trailer for the second episode of the second season of Alphas, the episode is entitled ‘The Quick and the Dead’. Last week’s season opener was OK, it...

Rachel Nichols as Kiera Cameron - Family Time - Continuum

Continuum Family Time Preview ***UPDATED***

Family Time is the second to last episode of Continuum and it seems that it will try to unravel the multitude of plot line and questions that have arisen from the previous 8 episodes. Liber8 and its leader Kagame (Tony Amendola) have finally concluded that Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) has managed to defeat because of the help she got from the present day Alec Sadler (Erik Knudsen), as such they will try and eliminate him (not shown in the screen below). Alec has retrieved a message from his future self from Kiera’s implant that could explain why Liber8 travelled back in time and why...

Warehouse 13 ‘A New Hope’ mini-review!

A New Hope is the first episode of the fourth season of Warehouse 13. The plot in broad strokes… After the destruction of the warehouse in the finale of the last season the story continues with the direct aftermath to those events. Pete, Artie and Myka have survived thanks to H.G Wells (Jaime Murray) sacrificing herself. Quickly Artie comes up with the suggestion that they use a fail-safe to travel back 24 hours in order to stop the warehouse being blown up. However, as it will take time to find Magellan’s Astrolabe they must attempt to retrieve it within 24...
