Waterworld: what it was like before it was a $175m epic

30 June 2017 3:50 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 24, 2017

It was a legendarily expensive action vehicle for Kevin Costner in 1995, but Waterworld originally began life as a subtly different story...

Tales of Waterworld's making have long since passed into legend. You've probably read about the long and difficult shoot on the open seas around Hawaii, about the soaring costs, the sinking sets and the increasingly fractious relationship between the two Kevins - director Kevin Reynolds and star Kevin Costner. You've probably heard about a pre-Buffy Joss Whedon being flown in to revise the script, and how, getting wind of all this, the Hollywood press started calling Waterworld names like "Fishtar and "Kevin's Gate".

What's less commonly discussed is just where Waterworld came from. It's often reported that the screenplay was written by Peter Rader and later reworked by David Twohy; what's less widely known is that Waterworld could »

What Might Have Been: A History of Failed Alien Sequels

3 May 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Alien franchise has an interesting history not just because of the films that hit the big screen, but also because of the ones that did not. This is a look at some of the Alien films that came close to getting a greenlight, but were never made.

During the movie production process, it is not uncommon for a film to undergo several major changes in concept before becoming fully realized. The Alien franchise is one franchise that has seen its fair share of changes along the way. However, it is also unique due to the shear volume of potential films that have hit the drawing board but never progressed. Part of the reason for this is due to the fact that the Alien franchise has run into many different problems along the way. For one, it is a rare franchise with a multitude of different filmmakers and producers involved »

No One Can Hear You Scream: Life and Death in Space Horror

26 March 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black on space horror…

The release this week of Life, the new science-fiction horror film from Daniel Espinosa, may herald for many a revelation if they’re unfamiliar with a sub-genre all of its own – the space horror movie. Espinosa’s film is entertaining, if workmanlike, and will be enjoyed primarily by people unfamiliar with the cavalcade of pictures it pilfers from across its running time, but can it really hold a candle to the movies it’s professing to update and sit alongside? That’s arguable.

What matters is the aforementioned sub-genre it now sits within, as it’s as rich and full as the wide variety of other sub-genres in horror or indeed science-fiction. Life, like many other movies we’ll mention here, owes its existence and a huge debt to what may not have been the first sci-fi horror movie, but is undoubtedly still the grandmaster. »

Cinema’s Top Underwater Thrillers

2 March 2017 6:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The new aquatic adventure film The Chamber – where a submarine mission goes badly wrong – is the epitome of an underwater thriller. It plunges you into the action and makes you feel as if you’re right there with the crew fighting amongst each other, and fighting for their lives, sinking into the depths of the Yellow Sea. Here are eight more deep sea chillers that’ll have you struggling for breath.

Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1961)

“Race from outer space to seven miles below the sea … with amazing aquanauts of the deep!” In this classic sci-fi adventure Walter Pidgeon is in charge of a nuclear submarine whose very mission is to save the planet Earth. Directed by Irwin Allen, who went on to make disaster movies like The Poseidon Adventure and The Swarm, the film features the sub being attacked by a giant octopus, which should be recommendation enough. »

Interview: Katee Sackhoff Discusses Don’T Knock Twice, Riddick & Rescuing Baby Hedgehogs

3 February 2017 4:16 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Katee Sackhoff is known for playing kick-ass characters who can take on even the most menacing mercenary, but her character in Don’t Knock Twice faces a different kind of threat: herself. Wrestling with personal demons, Sackhoff’s Jess shows how powerful love can be when a witch threatens to tear her daughter away forever. With Don’t Knock Twice out today in theaters and on VOD and HD Digital from IFC Midnight, Daily Dead spoke with Sackhoff about bringing out Jess’ vulnerability and strengths, rescuing baby hedgehogs near the set, and how she’d love to reprise her role as Dahl in another Riddick movie (even if she had to win a dance-off to make it happen).

Thank you for taking the time to talk about Don’t Knock Twice. What was it about the role of Jess that struck you and interested you in this story?

The Danny Boyle sci-fi short film we never got to see

30 January 2017 6:48 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jan 31, 2017

Shot well over 18 years ago, Danny Boyle's sci-fi short film Alien Love Triangle has never been released - despite a starry cast...

In the late 90s, two very different filmmakers were still in the (relatively) early stages of their careers. Mexican director Guillermo del Toro had released his first feature, Cronos (1993) to widespread acclaim. The UK's Danny Boyle had captured the zeitgeist with his second movie, Trainspotting, and was about to embark on his next film, A Life Less Ordinary (1997).

Had everything gone to plan, del Toro and Boyle could have wound up directing their own chapters of a three-part anthology movie - the sci-fi equivalent of, say, Amicus Productions' portmanteau horror films of the 60s and 70s, such as The House That Dripped Blood »
