Ready Player One Review – Steven Spielberg’s adaptation shines, but only just!

Ready Player One Review I have just returned from viewing Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Ernest Cline’s novel Ready Player One. While it is better than I thought it would be – I fear it lacks the meaningful message it could have had. Ever since watching the first trailer I have been skeptical about the movie adaptation. I felt it looked like a silly CGI fest rather than a serious attempt at glorifying popular culture. Make no mistake – that is what the...

Ready Player One Premiere Slowly the buzz surrounding Steven Spielberg’s new movie Ready Player One is growing. The adaptation of Ernest Cline’s novel was on SciFiEmpire’s ‘most anticipated’ list. Yet, the poor initial reception of the trailers made it feel as though Ready Player One would be quickly forgotten. Yet, with less than a week to go until the release in the cinema things appear to be coming together. The initial reviews form the consensus that the movie is not bad...

Idris Elba in Star Trek Beyond

First trailer for Star Trek Beyond blasts unto the internet!

First trailer for Star Trek Beyond blasts unto the internet! The first trailer for Star Trek Beyond was released unto the internet, and it’s nothing short of amazing! Paramount decided to release the trailer early even though it was supposed to show as a teaser in front of the Force Awakens. However, after some screen caps were leaked over the weekend and finally a low-resolution trailer auf Deutsch this morning the decision was made to release the trailer properly. I must say, it...

Star Trek 3 News Roundup

Star Trek 3 News Roundup With J.J. Abrams directing Star Wars The Force Awakens you would almost forget that the Star Trek Reboot franchise will get a third movie. Star Trek 3, not to be confused with The Search For Spock, will be directed by Justin Lin (True Detective and Fast & Furious). Actor Simon Pegg who plays Scottie in the reboot will also write the script. After the debacle that was Star Trek Into Darkness the reboot is in...

Mission Impossible Rogue Nation title card.

Mission Impossible Rogue Nation trailer

Today the first live-action trailer for Mission Impossible 5 was released. The movies does away with the numerical counting just like Ghost Protocol. Instead the title will be Mission Impossible Rogue Nation. The movie will star Tom Cruise, but also Sean Harris (Prometheus) and Rebecca Ferguson (Hercules). Besides the new cast we will also see Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames return. Just like Ghost Protocol the movie is directed by Christopher McQuarrie. Mission Impossible Rogue Nation is scheduled for release July 31st. To sweeten...

Sith lord unveils light saber - Star Wars VII Lightsaber

J.J. Abrams talks about Star Wars VII Lightsaber

One of the most talked about scenes from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer was the new Sith ligthsaber. I dare say thanks to SciFiEmpire.net everybody got a high-resolution picture to pick their bone with. The controversy about the ligthsaber has hardly abated since the release of the trailer. Most think it is too gimmicky. After Episode 1 and 2 introduced new types of sabers it is hard to get around that argument. Many hope Star Wars Episode 7: The Force...

Star Trek Into Darkness available on iTunes!

Into Darkness for 14.99 Well, it’s the time of the season for digital downloads and Blu-Ray releases. After Iron Man 3 and Star Trek Into Darkness were released during the early summer period we can now catch them on the rebound. Iron Man 3 has already been released for Blu-Ray but Star Trek Into Darkness will for now only released as a digital download on iTunes for 14.99. It at least gave me the possibility to re-watch this rather controversial release. Personally I...

Star Trek Into Darkness Review!

Star Trek Into Darkness Review!

Finally I have been able to see Star Trek Into Darkness in at the cinema. If it wasn’t just only for the fact that I am a veritable Trekkie that I wanted to see it but also to finally be able to put aside the continuous promotion of the movie that has gone on for weeks now. Star Trek Into Darkness is of course J.J. Abrams second Star Trek outing. It acts as a sequel to the 2009 movie that significantly raised...

Star Trek Into Darkness Images and Novelization!

As it is Easter Monday it is a bit of slow newsday. I bet everyone has been downloading the season finale of The Walking Dead and the season premiere of Game of Thrones anyway. Just in case you are hungry for some science-fiction I have got some more images from Star Trek Into Darkness. They are not of the highest quality but they do show some actors who have so far been ‘lost in action’. Star Trek Into Darkness of course stars Chris...

Star Trek Into Darkness Featurette Round-up + Motion still!

Paramount has released a featurette of J.J. Abrams Star Trek Into Darkness starring Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto. To my knowledge it doesn’t contain any new footage but it does re-organize what we have seen in the trailers so far and it clarifies the plot of the movie a bit. As such; SPOILER ALERT! No seriously, this is the featurette that is going to be played and re-played for the coming three months until the release of the movie itself Here is...
