You, Me And The Apocalypse Season 1 Review

27 January 2016 4:11 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Five episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

It’s hard to go in blind to any television show nowadays, with all of the coverage, behind-the-scenes, and spoiler chat that seem to be the cornerstone of marketing campaigns for any series with a hashtag and Twitter account. When you get that rare opportunity, having no idea what you’re about to get yourself into, it’s exciting not knowing what’s coming your way. This surprised, in-the-dark feeling is thematically apt given the subject matter of You, Me and the Apocalypse – humanity has 34 days to live thanks to an eight-mile-long comet hurtling towards the planet that’ll bring along a few earthquakes, tidal waves, acid fog, and essentially wipe the microbial floor with our remains.

Thanks to NBC’s weird-in-retrospect marketing, I went into the British-American series with the preconceived notion that You, Me and the Apocalypse was a quirky half-hour »

This Jurassic Park Modern Trailer Is Terrifying

24 January 2016 9:49 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Jurassic World may have revitalized the Jurassic Park franchise this past summer, but nothing can compare to the original. Based upon the Michael Crichton book of the same name, Jurassic Park tells a simultaneously awe inspiring and terrifying story about human hubris and nature itself. A new fan made trailer for the original Jurassic Park has hit the web, and it perfectly captures the terrifying tone of the 1993 classic. Check it out below.   Because basically everyone knows the plot of the original Jurassic Park, this modern interpretation relies less on heavy-handed exposition and narration. It starts with hopeful, sweeping music as we are introduced to the world, but as Ian Malcolm starts to express his fears about the future of the park, the mood begins to change to a more sinister, haunting tone.

HBO's 'Westworld' halts production to finish scripts

18 January 2016 2:28 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

HBO is halting production on their forthcoming television series "Westworld" to put the finishing touches on the final scripts of season one. Whether or not this will move the 2016 air date remains to be seen.  HBO's production of "Westworld" has been temporarily shut down, according to sources at Variety. This shutdown was prompted by executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. Production on "Westworld" stopped in November, and is said to resume in March.  "Westworld" is based on the book and film of the same name, which was written by Michael Crichton. The film, which was released in 1973, featured Yul Brynner in the lead role. The storyline showed the beginning stages of self-awareness in the artificially intelligent staff of a western-themed amusement park. The HBO series will feature similar themes and boasts an all-star cast, including Sir Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden and Thandie Newton. While »

HBO’s $54 Million Westworld Halts Production But Will Still Get a $12 Million Tax Credit (Gimme)

18 January 2016 11:13 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

HBO's $54 million–budget show Westworld is taking a breather from nothing (that's right, the show hasn't even aired yet) to allow executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy to "finish four final scripts." (Heard that one before.) Though the show is taking a break, that won't endanger the $12 million in tax credits it will receive from California. As Deadline reports, "Cfc regulations say that as long as Westworld filmed at least 1-day in California within 180 days of being approved for the lucrative tax credits this summer it will still get the incentives when the season finishes." Rumor is things will start back up in mid-February, when the EPs will have to put down their piña coladas and hop back on their jet to reality. The series is about a futuristic theme park, based on a 1973 Michael Crichton film of the same name. The cast includes Anthony Hopkins, »

HBO Temporarily Shuts Down Production On Westworld

18 January 2016 10:46 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

HBO has temporarily shut down production on the ambitious sci-fi drama Westworld, citing the need of a “brief hiatus in order to get ahead of the writing.” Outside of quick glimpses at the visual style of the show thanks to a thirty-second teaser, not much has been revealed about the series, which is a remake of the 1973 Michael Crichton movie of the same name.

When it does premiere, the show will follow the behind-the-scenes drama of a futuristic theme park where robots and humans exist at once to entertain the masses of the western-themed vacation destination. HBO insisted that the show was on track a few weeks ago, but reports have now come out regarding the writers’ need to catch up on the first season’s final four scripts.

With the brief hiatus, showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy will be allowed room to breathe and create a show worthy »

HBO's "Westworld" Production On Hiatus

17 January 2016 9:33 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Production has been temporarily shut down on HBO's highly anticipated and ambitious sci-fi drama series "Westworld".

Variety reports that the project, a new spin on Michael Crichton's classic 1973 film about androids gone haywire at an amusement park in the near future, shuttered for two months so executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy can catch up on the final four scripts.

Filming on the first season was originally scheduled to wrap in November, but things were put on hold and now it is set to resume its last batch of filming in March.

HBO says in a statement: "As we head into the final phase of production on 'Westworld' we've made the decision to take a brief hiatus in order to get ahead of the writing." They add that they still intend to premiere the series sometime this year.

Movie Poster of the Week: “The Man Who Fell to Earth” and David Bowie in Movie Posters

16 January 2016 12:20 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: UK one sheet for The Man Who Fell to Earth (Nicolas Roeg, UK, 1976). Designed and illustrated by Vic Fair.David Bowie, who left our planet this week, appeared in some 20 movies, but his appearances on movie posters are restricted to just a handful of films. Many of his roles, especially in later years, were cameos or small, but significant, character parts. He memorably played Pontius Pilate in Scorsese’s The Last Temptation of Christ (1988), Andy Warhol in Julian Schnabel’s Basquiat (1996), and Nikola Tesla in Christopher Nolan’s The Prestige (2006); he appeared as himself in films as varied as Christiane F. (1981), Zoolander (2001) and Bandslam (2009); and he was endearingly strange as an FBI agent in the opening section of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (1992).His most important and iconic film role by far is his starring role as the titular alien in Nicolas Roeg’s The Man Who Fell to Earth »

David Bowie’s ‘Man Who Fell to Earth’ Co-Star on His ‘Heavenly’ First Movie Role

11 January 2016 7:39 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When actress Candy Clark talks about co-starring with David Bowie in Nicolas Roeg’s 1976 sci-fi masterpiece “The Man Who Fell To Earth,” the 40 years that have passed since the film’s New Mexico production melt away and the vibrancy of the experience is alive with details and insights.

“Nic’s (Roeg) original idea for the role of the alien, Thomas Jerome Newton was the author Michael Crichton, because he was tall and a little bit unworldly. But my recollection is that film producers Arlene Sellers and Alex Winitsky were talking to Nic and I about the casting and I believe it was Alex who said, “Have you thought about David Bowie?”

That was quickly followed-up, says Clark, who had previously co-starred in John Huston’s “Fat City” with Jeff Bridges and the hit George Lucas ‘50s homage, “American Graffiti,” with a real-live Bowie encounter.
