Something very strange has been going on at the Acme Theatre these last few weeks. Some…Thing! Sci-Fi Fest La was back for a second year, and it was better than ever! Bringing together actors old and new, the program featured a series of one-act plays, most of which were specifically written for the event. Even genre icons Clive Barker and Neil Gaiman were eager to donate stories!
The program started with a play titled A Billion Tuesdays. A mentally disabled man creates a device that alters reality to varying degrees based on the number of times you click the button, leading to realities involving zombie apocalypses, futuristic technology, and even a “what if the Nazis had won” scenario. By the end of the play, it’s apparent that the father intends for his daughter to use the device to alter his condition, but she remains adamant about her love for him and refuses. »

Since Star Trek: The Motion Picture in 1979, the Star Trek cinematic outings have proved to be a smorgasbord of references and famous actors (or those who would go on to be), and often had complex behind the scenes events that stopped some rather, ahem, fascinating moments making it to the final version. We found lots of nerdy spots in the first six films here.
This time out we look at the films featuring the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation and choose 47 factoids. Granted, there's a lot more than that of interest, but we've tried for ones that you might not be aware of.
Oh, and there are some major spoilers...

The annual Cannes festival has now kicked off, can you believe it’s already been a year since Sly, Arnie and the rest of The Expendables cast went for a tank ride? Expect the site to be riddled with various Cannes related breaking news over the coming days.
First up is a whole heap of new information about Ratchet And Clank. Based on one of the Sony’s most popular game franchises, the film follows the ever ongoing adventures of Lombax Ratchet and his robotic companion Clank. The games were predominately platformers though they had elements of pretty much every other game genre going. They were also full of fun for all ages humour and featured some rather peculiar weaponry – the suck cannon anyone?

Set to come our way in 2016, Playstation platform game Ratchet and Clank is getting the animated feature film treatment, and while the games original voice cast James Arnold Taylor (Rachet), David Kaye (Clank), Armin Shimmerman (Doctor Nefarious), and Jim Ward (Captain Quark) will be reprising their roles for the big screen adventures of the young alien Lombax and his robotic pal, The Hollywood Reporter have revealed that they will be joined by some tremendous talent, with Paul Giamatti, John Goodman, Sylvester Stallone, Rosario Dawson, and Bella Thorne (The Duff) lending their voices. With the plot revolving around the titular pair teaming up with a group called the Galactic Rangers to save the galaxy from the evil Chairman Drex, who has gotten his hands on a dangerous weapon capable of destroying planets, it’s safe to assume that they have been cast as members of the Rangers, though I can’t »

It’s been a few years since Sylvester Stallone provided a voice performance for a film (that would be 2011’s Zookeeper) and even longer since he was part of a CG ‘toon (you have to go back to 1998’s Antz for that). But now he has not one but two new animated adventures in the works, since he’s signed on to play a character in Ratchet & Clank alongside Paul Giamatti, John Goodman, Bella Thorne and Rosario Dawson. Announced back in 2013 with some hullabaloo, and taking aim at a release just a couple of months from now, the film adapts the PlayStation game series and also features the voice cast from the console title including James Arnold Taylor as Ratchet, David Kaye as Clank, Armin Shimerman as Nefarious and Jim Ward as Captain Qwark.The story finds Ratchet, a “lombox”, or cat-like creature, and his robot pal Clank, who have »
