15 of the most ridiculous Doctor Who rumours (that never came true)

Doctor Who returns to our screens in a little over a month - and you can read our 100% accurate guide to the new series right here.

But while it's always useful to have the facts, it's also great fun to indulge in some wild speculation - and Doctor Who has generated plenty of that over the years.

These are 15 of the most ridiculous rumours about the BBC's sci-fi smash that never came true - from Hollywood stars taking over the Tardis to an untimely exit for Peter Capaldi.

Warning: Contains perilously high levels of nonsense.

1. Jason Statham was in line to replace David Tennant

Reports emerged in early 2007 that professional tough guy Jason Statham was the BBC's top pick to play the 11th incarnation of our Time Lord, in what was pitched as Doctor Who "meets gangland".

Win A Copy of Admiral On DVD And 42″ LG TV

29 July 2015 8:51 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Charles Dance (TV’s Game of Thrones, The Imitation Game) and Rutger Hauer (Sin City, Batman Begins) star in this epic adventure about a 17th century Dutch admiral, who must lead his fleet to defend his homeland from the terrorising forces of England.

Admiral Michiel de Ruyter is the most famous, and one of the most skilled admirals in Dutch history, most celebrated for his role in the Anglo-Dutch Wars of the 17th century. He was held in the highest esteem by his sailors and soldiers, who used the term Bestevaêr (Grandfather) for him, as a result of his disregard for hierarchy and his refusal to back away from risky and bold undertakings despite his usually reserved and calculated nature.

We are giving one lucky reader the chance to win Admiral on DVD due to be released on 3rd August 2015. The winner will also receive a LG 42″ inch entry Led full HD TV, »

'Game of Thrones' Season 6: Jon Snow Actor Returns to Filming Location

22 July 2015 5:35 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Never mind Kit Harington's hair, this is the real reason why the Jon Snow rumors won't stay dead. As Watchers on the Wall noted, "Game of Thrones" Season 6 starts filming this week, and Kit -- who is being stalked for Jon Snow spoilers, bless him -- was once again spotted on a flight to Belfast, Northern Ireland, a key location for GoT production. One of the site's readers, who was on the flight from London to Belfast, spotted both Kit and Tom Wlaschiha (Jaqen H'ghar).

Kit Harington is in Belfast Again; plus, Irish actor joins Game of Thrones #gameofthrones

It would be one thing if this was the only time Kit was seen. Then maybe you could argue that he was returning to film a dead body scene, ala Charles Dance for Tywin Lannister. »

Real Imitation Game Enigma coding machine sells for £150k

16 July 2015 5:26 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

One of the last Enigma coding machines that the Nazis used to send encrypted messages during the Second World War has sold at auction.

The device was valued between £50,000 and £70,000 but sold for a whooping £149,000, Sotheby's told BBC News.

It's thought that the recent Imitation Game movie helped boost the Enigma's value, although it doesn't beat the $269,000 (£172,350) paid for another model in April.

The Nazis believed the Enigma machines were impossible to crack with 159,000,000,000,000,000,000 possible settings.

However, British scientist Alan Turing developed a machine of his own, the Bombe, to decipher the codes.

During the war, around 100,000 Engimas were in use but the Nazis destroyed most of them as they retreated.

Turing was played by Benedict Cumberbatch in the 2014 feature, alongside Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Rory Kinnear, Charles Dance and Mark Strong. Watch a trailer below: »

50 forgotten sci-fi films from the 1990s

16 July 2015 3:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We may remember Independence Day, The Matrix, The Phantom Menace. But what about these forgotten 90s sci-fi films? And are any worth seeing?

Think back to the science fiction cinema of the 1990s, and some of the decade's biggest box-office hits will immediately spring to mind: The Phantom Menace, Jurassic Park, Independence Day, Men In Black, Armageddon and Terminator 2 were all in the top 20 most lucrative films of the era.

But what about the sci-fi films of the 1990s that failed to make even close to the same cultural and financial impact of those big hitters? These are the films this list is devoted to - the flops, the straight-to-video releases, the low-budget and critically-derided. We've picked 50 live-action films that fit these criteria, and dug them up to see whether they're still worth watching in the 21st century.

So here's a mix of everything from hidden classics to forgettable dreck, »

Watch: Pride And Prejudice And Zombie Cast Plays “Would You Rather”

14 July 2015 9:36 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

I’ve been working on a brand new game to add to the rotation and got the opportunity to give it a go last week at San Diego Comic-Con. Welcome to the very first edition of Collider’s movie-themed “Would You Rather!” The goal is to have some fun, but a top priority of the game is also to give a little insight into how a filmmaker likes to work, his or her on-set preferences, etc. Shortly after the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Hall H panel, I got the opportunity to sit down with Matt Smith who plays Mr. Collins and Jack Huston who plays Wickham. Lily James leads the adaptation of the Seth Grahame-Smith book as Elizabeth Bennet. She’s basically the same Elizabeth Bennet featured in the original Jane Austen novel except for the fact that she and her four sisters, Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady »
