New Riddick set picture!

Well, Vin Diesel has done it again, he has updated his facebook page with another picture from the set of the third Riddick movie. It is an interesting and effective way to keep the buzz about the movie going.

Fringe ‘The End of All Things’ Review!

Fringe ‘The End of All Things’ Review!

Fringe has been much in the news lately, rumors are plenty about it getting canceled after this season but many more allude to a shortened fifth season that will follow. If the producers continue than the show will get the magic number of 100 that is the usual benchmark for syndication. So far season 4 has been a mixed bag, with episodes being notably dumbed down as to not alienate audiences. The ratings seem to have leveled off at 3 million...

More Star Trek 2 set pictures!

More Star Trek 2 set pictures!

It never rains but it pours…. After yesterdays surprise set pictures we suddenly have 6 more pictures from three different sources. More exciting, in one picture we can see a IMAX camera which means that at least part of the movie is being filmed in this format. The scenes that are depicted in these pictures are much the same as yesterday and seem to have been made at around the same time.

First Star Trek 2 set pictures!

First Star Trek 2 set pictures!

It was bound to happen soon, first Simon Pegg celebrated his birthday with video that offered a glimpse of the Star Trek 2 set a couple of days ago and now MTV has uncovered two set pictures. The first picture below shows Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) in his role as the main antagonist, sadly I found the pic a bit spoilerisch. The other person (with the pointy ears) is Zachary Quinto reprising his role as Spock. The second picture below shows Zoe Saldana as...

Battleship International Trailer Revealed!

Battleship International Trailer Revealed!

Peter Berg’s Battleship starring Rihanna is one of two movies that has everybody guessing just how much it will bomb at the box office this year, the other being John Carter (from the John Carter of Mars franchise). Both movies have recieved little attention on this website and it has been suggested on various websites that neither movies has generated much awareness among the public. Sounds like box office fodder to me. Well anyway, we still have a new trailer for Battleship. It’s...

Alcatraz ‘Johnny McKee’ Review + “Clarence Montgomery’ Preview!

Alcatraz ‘Johnny McKee’ Review + “Clarence Montgomery’ Preview!

Even though the last episode of Alcatraz aired on Monday I haven’t gotten round to writing a review yet, mainly because the episode was kind-off boring. It was so far the worst episode in the series and it was a definite step down from last weeks excellent episode. That said, ‘Johnny McKee’ has its moments. Strangely enough the moments of brilliance are closely related with the moments when I just stopped caring. I’ll give an example; the main antagonist Johnny McKee...

Tron Uprising First Picture!

Tron Uprising First Picture!

This summer a CGI/animation series set in the Tron Universe will air on Disney XD. The series timeline is set between that of the two movies and will most likely deal with the ‘Uprising’ (duhhh) that was alluded to in Tron Legacy. The main character is called Beck and will be voiced by Elijah Wood. Here is the official synopsis… Beck is a young program who becomes the skillful leader of a revolution inside the computer world of The Grid. His mission is to free his...

Fringe ‘The End of all Things’ Preview!

Fringe ‘The End of all Things’ Preview!

So far season 4 of Fringe hasn’t been all that captivating. It has been OK in a time when just being OK isn’t really good enough. Last weeks ratings of Fringe once again dipped under the three million mark with a viewer rating of 2.99 million. This weeks episode of Fringe is entitled ‘The end of all things’ and is focused on the mythology. In some respects I am becoming rather tired with the mythology, it isn’t as captivating as it once...

Alcatraz ‘Johnny McKee’ Preview!

Alcatraz ‘Johnny McKee’ Preview!

Last weeks episode of Alcatraz, ‘Paxton Petty’, was a huge improvement over the previous hit-and-miss episodes. It was still a little formalistic but it combined a very dark story with broad character development. It is a shame that over the last few weeks the series has started to take a nose-dive in the ratings. I guess viewers aren’t as forgiving of the unpolished nature of Alcatraz. This weeks episode is entitled ‘Johnny McKee’ and deals with a poisoner, a rather unusual kind of murderer. Like...

It would feature the crew of the Enterprise-E and be released in october. David Mack has now updated his blog with details surrounding each of the instalments in the trilogy.   Here are the details. Book One of the trilogy, which is written and now with the editor, is The...

Fringe ‘A Better Human Being’ review!

Fringe ‘A Better Human Being’ review!

‘A Better Human Being’ is a very character driven episode of Fringe, after a season where this kind of story telling alternated with action-scenes it is pleasant to finally see progression in the characters. The relationship between Olivia and Peter is the main driving force behind the character development but it certainly also affects Walter Bishop, his character is a lot more focused in this episode and even chastises Peter for what he believes to be a bad influence on Olivia....

Lockout (Maximum Security One) Poster Online!

Lockout (Maximum Security One) Poster Online!

Here is the official poster for the forthcoming low-budget sci-fi movie Lockout! The movie stars Guy Pearce (LA Confidential) and Maggie Grace (Lost). Sometime ago we showed you the teaser trailer and frankly the movie had all the hallmarks of B-movie, last week another trailer surfaced and I must say it changes my whole perception of this flick. Here is that trailer… As the poster suggest the movie is to be released on April 20th.

Eureka back in April for its fifth and final season!

Eureka back in April for its fifth and final season!

In a press release Syfy Channel has announced its spring line-up of shows, this includes Eureka which will then première its fifth and final season. As you might expect the rest of the line-up is complete rubbish, ranging from wrestling, reality-horror shows and combinations of both! Its sad to think that the only shows that really matters on Syfy channel is about to end. As for Alphas and Warehouse 13, expect those back in the summer. Here is part of the...

Prometheus International trailer revealed!

Prometheus International trailer revealed!

Last month the official teaser trailer for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus was released and now the international market will get its own trailer, albeit one very similar to the teaser trailer. Alas it contains little new footage but somehow its a lot more crisp. We also have the official synopsis for the movie… Visionary filmmaker Ridley Scott returns to the genre he helped define, creating an original science fiction epic set in the most dangerous corners of the universe. The film takes a team...
