Two new Riddick sequel set pictures!

Vin Diesel has yet again updated his facebook page with more set photos, its a shame they only include his character and none of the others.

After lasts weeks TED talk featuring Guy Pearce as the future Peter Weyland we now have another tease, this time it is a high res picture of the star map as seen in the movie teaser trailer.

Terra Nova cancelled!

Terra Nova cancelled!

After having been away for a week from my website an unpleasant surprise awaited me. News that Fox’s would-be flagship sci-fi show Terra Nova had been cancelled. In the last few weeks rumors were that a second season was probable. Alas it is not to be. That said, it can’t come as a complete surprise as the show had it fair share of problems. The premise was OK but the scope was far too narrow. The drama was childish and the plot...

Prometheus Viral-ad video featuring Guy Pearce as Weyland.

Everyone familiar with the Alien franchise will know the name Weyland-Yutani, it is the name of the powerful conglomerate that in one form or another is an important part of the franchises back story. Now as a tie in to the upcoming Prometheus we get a viral-ad featuring Guy Pearce as Peter Weyland. Here is the description that goes with it. Peter Weyland has been a magnet for controversy since he announced his intent to build the first convincingly humanoid...

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. Source; http://trekmovie.com/2012/02/24/more-photos-from-star-trek-set-imax-camera-spotted/ Over on Trekmovie.com there is already a lively discussion about...

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...
