D-Box has announced the September 25 release of Overture Films' Pandorum starring Dennis Quaid, Ben Foster and Cam Gigandet will become the sixth film to be released theatrically in D-Box enabled cinemas. In D-Box's words, the motion control technology "adds to the movie's plot and underlying themes of fear, terror and explosive action by offering realistic sensations during most of the film's action scenes." Pandorum with D-Box will appear at the following seven theaters beginning this Friday: Cineplex Odeon Queensway Theatre in Etobicoke, Canada; Mann Chinese 6 Theatre in Los Angeles, California; Theatres at Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota; Galaxy at the Cannery in Las Vegas, Nevada; Galaxy Highland Theatre in Austin, Texas; UltraStar Cinemas in Surprise, Arizona; and UltraStar Apple Valley in San Bernardino, California. D-Box equipped seating costs more than a standard ticket, much like a 3D showing carries a higher price than a traditional 2D showing. The limited »
Buried deep within the bowels of an interview that io9 did with Dennis Quaid (who I'm quickly beginning to see as the unsung hero-star of Sci-Fi) is the crumb of information that if there are plans to do another G.I. Joe: Rise or Fall of the Something or Other, he would love to play Hawk again. The money quote from Quaid here: Yeah, if they do one, I'm there." And is there really any doubt that there will be another one? The domestic alone is over $146 million. So using my crystal ball I am able to deduce that this is as good as a casting notice for Hawk for the next film. I know. A serious scoop. For more obvious news, check us out every hour on the hour.

With its release this Friday approaching rapidly, it's time to go behind-the-scenes of the chilling looking sci-fi thriller Pandorum thanks to a nifty little featurette that's just hit the interwebs.
In Pandorum, Dennis Quaid (Vantage Point, The Express) and Ben Foster (3:10 to Yuma, Alpha Dog) join Cam Gigandet (Never Back Down, Twilight), Cung Le (Tekken, Fighting), newcomer Antje Traue, and director Christian Alvart (Antibodies) to tell the terrifying story of two crew members stranded on a spacecraft who quickly – and horrifically – realize they are not alone. Two astronauts awaken in a hyper-sleep chamber aboard a seemingly abandoned spacecraft. It’s pitch black, they are disoriented, and the only sound is a low rumble and creak from the belly of the ship. They can’t remember anything: Who are they? What is their mission? With Lt. Payton (Quaid) staying behind to guide him via radio transmitter, Cpl. Bower (Foster) ventures »

From the creators of the Resident Evil film franchise comes Christian Alvart's Pandorum, a terrifying thriller in which two crew members wake up on an abandoned spacecraft with no idea who they are, how long they've been asleep, or what their mission is. The two soon discover they're actually not alone. And the reality of their situation is more horrifying than they could have ever imagined. In the film, Dennis Quaid plays Payton, one of the few surviving crewmembers. What, exactly, does he and co-stars Ben Foster, Cung Le, and Antje Traue confront out in the deep recesses of space? We recently caught up with Quaid to find out, and this is what he had to tell us about the film:
Payton is one of the few remaining crew members on this abandoned space ship. What »
Marketing is all about momentum. If you can’t keep the public jazzed about your multi-million dollar project starring Dennis Quaid and Ben Foster, then you might as well pack it in and call it a day. The skilled, Internet savvy professionals pimping Christian Alvart’s sci-fi horror opus “Pandorum” to the masses are well aware of this fact, and they want to make sure you have plenty of material to keep you interested before the film’s scheduled September 25th release date. That said, feast your tiny eyes upon the collection of clips below, which should, in theory, keep you well fed until the main course arrives later this month. Assuming, of course, that you’re not completely distracted by something else before then. Pathetically sad, yes, but entirely feasible. »
As if last week's mixed-genre Friday openings weren't enough, we've got the same song this week as well. I'm thinking that the front-runner is "Fame." Not only does it possess an all-ages appeal, but there's also the nostalgia factor to consider. The 1980 original was quite popular, so even childless thirty-somethings can find something to enjoy with this remake. Maybe.
It's not like there aren't other options. Michael Moore is back with another message-driven doc, "Capitalism: A Love Story." This one's about the sorry state of financial affairs that our nation is currently in, with the focus on what went wrong and how we got to where we currently are. Moore is nothing if not a crowd-pleaser, so expect to find his same brand of wry, scathing humor mixed with shocking facts about corporate and governmental wrongdoings.
In addition to the Moore flick, Overture Films also has some sci-fi/horror for you to enjoy. »

ShockTillYouDrop.com talked to Dennis Quaid about starring in the new horror-thriller Pandorum , opening in theaters on Friday, September 25th. Directed by Christian Alvart, the film co-stars Ben Foster, Cam Gigandet, Antje Traue, Cung Le, Eddie Rouse, Andre Hennicke and Norman Reedus. In Pandorum , two astronauts awaken in a hyper-sleep chamber aboard a seemingly abandoned spacecraft. They can't remember anything - who are they, what is their mission? The only way out of the chamber is a dark and narrow airshaft. Corporal Bower (Foster), the younger of the two, crawls inside, while the other, Lt. Payton (Quaid), stays behind for guidance on a radio transmitter. As Bower ventures deeper and deeper into the ship, he begins to uncover a terrifying reality. Slowly the spacecraft's »
Talking about a film like Pandorum , Overture's September 25 release produced by Paul W.S. Anderson and Jeremy Bolt, has been a bit of a challenge for stars Ben Foster, Antje Traue ( interview ) and Cung Le ( interview ). When I accepted an invite to get on the phone with leading man Dennis Quaid to talk about Christian Alvart's film (without being given an advance screening), I figured I'd get more details than previously offered. Alas, the actor - who has starred in some of my childhood faves like Enemy Mine and Dreamscape - had to keep mum as well. The experience of shooting Pandorum ? That he was happy to get into. Quaid says he was thrilled with Alvart, someone he describes as a "34-year-old wunderkind" . Alvart's credits include Antibodies and the »

Sony's 3D animated feature "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs" enjoyed a balmy weekend opening, topping the rankings with an estimated $30.1 million in domestic boxoffice.
Warner Brothers' "The Informant!" -- a Matt Damon-toplined whistleblower thriller -- bowed about as expected with $10.5 million in second place amid lackluster competition. Tyler Perry's "I Can Do Bad All by Myself," from Lionsgate, dropped 57% from its week-earlier tally to register $10.1 million in third place, with a 10-day cume of $37.9 million.
Universal's romantic drama "Love Happens," starring Aaron Eckhart and Jennifer Aniston, debuted with a tepid $8.5 million in fourth. Fox Atomic's horror film "Jennifer's Body" was buried deep in fifth place, as the Megan Fox starrer disappointed with a $6.8 million bow.
Another horror film -- Summit's similarly R-rated "Sorority Row" -- dropped a relatively modest 51% in its sophomore session to register $2.5 million in ninth place, with an $8.9 million cume. Three rungs higher, »

Dennis Quaid appeared on "Regis and Kelly" on Thursday to promote his sci-fi thriller "Pandorum," but also to talk about the upcoming "Special Relationship" movie. In it, Quaid will portray Bill Clinton, and in the video below you can watch him imitate the President and talk about gaining weight for the role. "Relationship" will be a dramatization that traces former UK prime minister Tony Blair's relationships with Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. It will be set at the time of Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky, who will only be featured through archive footage. Julianne Moore will play First Lady Hilary Clinton, while Michael Sheen, who has played Blair twice before in "The Deal" and "The Queen," is set to reprise the role.

My time at Sirius started a little earlier than usual this week which was absolutely fine by me. I love being here and will always take advantage of any chance I have to do so; especially, when it’s to help setup an interview with fellow Texan Dennis Quaid.
Sirius is absolutely bustling during the day and it was great to be a part of the manic energy of the building for a change instead of the mellow night watchman kind of vibe that I’m used to on Friday nights. We didn’t have access to the studio until three p.m. because another show was using the studio right up until the end of the hour. So Ian our board-op and I only had ten minutes to send Audition to Dee Snider, get him tapped in on the Isdn line from his home, and take Dennis Quaid’s call and patch him through. »

Screen Gems' January 22, 2010 release Legion arrives with an army of furious angels, a director with an extensive FX background (Scott Stewart) and an ensemble cast that includes Paul Bettany, Dennis Quaid, Tyrese Gibson, Doug Jones, Charles S. Dutton, Lucas Black and Adrianne Palicki. It's an apocalyptic frenzy over a decade in the making, believe it or not. The original script was penned in the '90s by Hollywood editor Peter Schink and, since then, it traded multiple hands before landing at Screen Gems. I reconnected with Peter recently to get the lowdown on Legion 's past. Oh, and in case you haven't heard about the film's plot, it concerns a group of people holed up in a diner defending themselves from gun-wielding angels who have been sent to Earth to wipe out mankind. »
Continuing our theme of bringing you foreign movie trailers (see Russian Solomon Kane for a prime example), today we have the latest German trailer for Pandorum. Directed by German up-and-comer Christian Alvert (Antibodies), ze Germans have managed to get first look at most of the trailers so far, so expect an English speaking version soon. To be honest though, we are quite enjoying the Bavarian tones of Dennis Quaid... The new trailer focuses more on the shock and paranoia of the film, rather than the monster focus of previous...

To go along with the five clips, beyond the break you'll now find a brand new full trailer for Overture Films' Pandorum, which arrives in theaters everywhere next Friday, September 25! The trailer features a ton of new footage. In the film a young crew member awakes from his hyper sleep chamber to discover he's alone on a massive spaceship. He ventures towards the bridge in search of others and to try and figure out what happened. The awesome Ben Foster (30 Days Of Night) stars alongside Dennis Quaid (The Horsemen, Innerspace), Antje Traue and Cam Gigandet (Twilight, Unborn, Priest, The Roommate). Looks pretty cool, no? »
Opening September 25th is director Christian Alvart’s “Pandorum”. The film tells the story of two crew members stranded on a spacecraft who quickly - and horrifically - realize they are not alone. The synopsis says, “two astronauts awaken in a hyper-sleep chamber aboard a seemingly abandoned spacecraft. It’s pitch black, they are disoriented, and the only sound is a low rumble and creak from the belly of the ship. They can’t remember anything: Who are they? What is their mission? With Lt. Payton (Dennis Quaid) staying behind to guide him via radio transmitter, Cpl. Bower (Ben Foster) ventures deep into the ship and begins to uncover a terrifying reality. Slowly the spacecraft’s shocking, deadly secrets are revealed…and the astronauts find their own survival is more important than they could ever have imagined.” So to help promote the film, we’ve been given 5 clips from the movie. »

Earlier this month, we brought you a look at the German teaser trailer for Pandorum ( check it out ). The full preview is in and the focus is less on the creature element of the film and more on the ship and the "pandorum" element. Pretty cool. Dennis Quaid, Ben Foster, Antje Traue, Cung Le, Norman Reedus and Cam Gigandet star in this Christian Alvart horror sci-fi flick. It opens in theaters on September 25. »
