The very first images from the in-production Once Upon A Time In London have hit the web. The British gangster saga is now shooting in and around London, England and boasts an impressive cast that includes Leo Gregory, Terry Stone, Holly Earl, Dominic Keating, Geoff Bell, Jamie Foreman, Doug Allen, Andy Beckwith, Roland Manookian, Justin Salinger, Kate Braithwaite and Laura Carter.

Simon Rumley to helm gangster thriller ‘Once Upon a Time in London’

Simon Rumley (director of Red, White & Blue, Fashionista & Crowhurst) has begun a six week shoot on the brutal gangster thriller Once Upon a Time in London – for Gateway Films – which dramatises the violent reign of two of London’s most notorious gangsters, Billy Hill (Leo Gregory) and Jack ‘Spot’ Comer (Terry Stone), charting the legendary rise and fall of a nationwide criminal empire that lasted until the mid-fifties and which paved the way for the notorious Kray Twins and The Richardsons.

Director and co-writer Simon Rumley commented:

Having spent the last decade or so writing and directing thematically disparate but collectively extreme dramas, it makes absolute sense for me to progress to the gangster genre where love, lust, greed, paranoia, betrayal and violence are every day occurrences. The story of Jack Spot Comer, Billy Hill and their respective battles to become King of London’s Underworld has remained one of Britain’s most dynamic,

Mindy Newell: These Are The Voyages…

“Don’t screw this up.”

Admiral Maxwell Forrest, Starfleet Command, to Captain Jonathan Archer • “Broken Bow” • Episode 1, Season 1, Enterprise

As I mentioned in last week’s column (Oh Boy), Scott Bakula also starred as Captain Jonathan Archer on Enterprise, which ran on the Upn network from September 2001 to May 2005, a total of four years. That’s one more year than Tos’s run, but three years shorter than its successful progenitors, Next Gen, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager.

Upn claimed that poor ratings caused Enterprise’s downfall; according to Wikipedia, it never rose above the Top 100 rank in the Neilson ratings system, debuting at #115, and continuing to sink until its final season, where it landed at #148. It’s generally perceived as a failure, and has been blamed for the lack of any Star Trek on either television or movie screens until J.J. Abrams’s 2009 film reboot of the franchise.

Star Trek: Enterprise - Complete Second Season - Blu-ray Review

The voyage continues for the brave first crew of the Enterprise. It’s a bit disheartening as modern audiences (such as me) discover what a good show it was (although still some clunker episodes) now that the voyage is over. Paramount/CBS also ponies up some excellent special features to help tell the behind-the-scenes tales of why Enterprise stopped boldly going. The Nx-01 Enterprise is commanded by Capt. Jonathan Archer (Scott Bakula) crewed by chief engineer Charles “Trip” Tucker III (Connor Trinneer), tactical officer Malcolm Reed (Dominic Keating), communications officer Hoshi Sato (Linda Park), helmsman Travis Mayweather (Anthony Montgomery), alien Dr. Phlox (John Billingsley), and Vulcan science officer T’Pol (Jolene Blalock).

With the buzz about next year's Star Trek Into Darkness (as it will now be called) reaching fever pitch (not least about the identity of man of the moment Benedict Cumberbatch's as yet unrevealed villain), and the recent stunning Blu-Ray release of The Next Generation's first season (which Shadowlocked awarded five stars in its review here), fans in the UK are being well and truly spoiled by the upcoming Destination Star Trek event to be held at London's ExCeL centre on 19th to 21st October 2012.

DVD Review: Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock Holmes (2010)

Stars: Gareth David-Lloyd, Ben Syder, Dominic Keating | Written by Paul Bales | Directed by Rachel Goldenberg

Holmes and his faithful companion, Dr. Watson embark on their most dangerous case yet – saving London from an attack by fearsome monsters. The investigation takes the heroic duo on an incredible journey that sees them do battle with their arch nemesis, the mad mechanical genius Spring-Heeled Jack, who will stop at nothing to bring destruction to London. Holmes and Watson courageously fight to save London and its people from annihilation.

If you’ve ever seen one of The Asylum’s mockbusters, you should know what to expect from this film – Ott story, plenty of action, dodgy CGI and often risible acting. However this film eschews Aylum traditions and present a more serene tale of the legendary detective – kidding! Sherlock Holmes is as wild and crazy as the rest of The Asylum’s output,

DVD News: Sherlock Holmes (UK/R2)

I’ve been talking about The Asylum’s ‘mockbuster’ version of Sherlock Holmes for a couple of months now, last time round I mentioned that Revolver Entertainment had picked the film up for UK distribution, and I’ve now recieved official confirmation of the UK DVD release, along with the DVD cover art:

Revolver Entertainment have announced the UK DVD release of ‘mockbuster’ production, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, on April 26th 2010.

Not to be outdone by its Hollywood counterpart, Director Rachel Goldenberg brings together an ensemble of talent including Gareth David-Lloyd (Torchwood, Dr. Who) as Watson and newcomer Ben Syder as the adventurous Holmes. Dominic Keating (Star Trek: Enterprise, Heroes, Prison Break) features as their greatest foe.

‘Sherlock Holmes’ – Torchwood’s Ianto features in new pics, plus UK release info

If you haven’t heard already, Gareth David-Lloyd, aka Torchwood’s Ianto Jones is the co-star in yet another cinematic adaptation of Sherlock Holmes… Don’t get your hopes up folks, this version comes from the purveyors of low-budget, The Asylum. Starring along side David-Lloyd in the film are newcomer Ben Syder and Star Trek: Enterprise’s Dominic Keating in a story set in London sometime in the 19th Century.

Holmes (Syder) and Watson (David-Lloyd) are called upon to help track down and ultimately capture Spring Heeled Jack (Keating), presented here as a mechanical genius. Spring-Heeled Jack has been terrorising London with a steam-powered body armour that permits him to carry out crimes without fear of capture, as well as several robotic dinosaurs and monsters as a means of committing various crimes. During the investigations, however, Holmes and Watson learn of a plot by Spring-Heeled Jack to assassinate Queen Victoria by using a robotic woman,

trailer break: ‘Sherlock Holmes’

In case you got confused and thought this was the Guy Ritchie movie, it isn’t. This is the Sherlock Holmes movie with dinosaurs!. And robots. And steampunk battle armor. And sea monsters. And girls with guns. Well, that other Sherlock Holmes had girls with guns, too. Gee, but it’s kinda funny how Asylum Entertainment’s films often somehow seem to get mistaken for other movies. Like Alien vs Hunter, starring William Katt, which totally isn’t Alien vs. Predator. Or The Da Vinci Treasure, starring C. Thomas Howell, which -- hello! -- is absolutely not The Da Vinci Code. I mean, duh! Or I Am Omega, starring Mark Dacascos, which is soooo not I Am Legend that it’s not even funny. Why would people keep making such mistakes? No one, on the other hand, mistakes Asylum’s Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus for anything other than what it is.
