An intriguing trailer has launched for a new sci-fi movie series titled The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One (or, vice versa, as Science Fiction Volume One: The Osiris Child) from Australian filmmaker Shane Abbess. Described as an "adrenaline-fueled sci fi adventure", the story takes place in the future in a time of interplanetary colonization, about a father who has to rescue a young woman amidst a global crisis. The full cast includes Kellan Lutz, Daniel MacPherson, Isabel Lucas, Luke Ford, Rachel Griffiths, Temuera Morrison, Bren Foster, Dwaine Stevenson, and Teagan Croft. As much as I was expecting this to look cheesy or too low budget, it actually looks pretty damn good, with some impressive visual effects and an interesting story. I don't know if the movie is any good, but I'm very curious about checking this out. Here's the first trailer for Shane Abbess' Science Fiction Volume One: The Osiris Child, »

While Luc Besson is delivering some B-movie sci-fi spectacle on a massive scale this summer, the days of scrappy films in the same genre are few and far between. Enter Science Fiction Volume One: The Osiris Child, the third feature from writer-director Shane Abbess, which is set in a future of interplanetary colonization and follows a father (Daniel MacPherson) searching for his daughter and a convict (Kellan Lutz) who decides to help him.
We said in our review from Fantastic Fest, “The true strength with this blast of a film is that everything is so unexpected. What starts to come across as uninspired SyFy fare quickly does a 180-degree turn and shows us that Abbess and team have something to say, and more importantly, show. From narration to flashbacks to chapter breaks, Science Fiction Volume One: The Osiris Child just gives and gives, and when it ends — brilliantly, by the »

The CGI elements look well done. Though, the film does not rely on computer generated images. Instead, the clip focuses on the characters and action sequences, »

Shane Abbess is back with a pulpy new space opera called The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume 1. Rochefort loved the film out of Fantastic Fest last year and the first trailer looks like a ton of fun.
You got to hand it to Abbess. He knows how to make a great looking product on a low budget.

There's an obvious love for old school pulp serials on display in Shane Abbess' scifi spectacle The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One. The title itself is a deliberate nod to old dime store adventure novels and that anything goes aesthetic is very much on display in the way Abbess fuses new school VFX with old school practical creature effects. Set in the future in a time of interplanetary colonisation, Sy (Kellan Lutz), a mysterious drifter, meets Kane (Daniel MacPherson), a lieutenant working for an off-world military contractor, Exor. The unlikely pair must work together to rescue Kane’s young daughter (Teagan Croft) and reach safety amid an impending global crisis which was brought on by Exor itself. Teaming up with a pair of renegades (Luke...

Ashley Greene still has plenty of love for her Twilight co-stars.
The 30-year-old actress sat down with Et's Katie Krause on Monday to talk about the last season of her show, Rogue, when she also opened up about her Twilight co-star, Kristen Stewart. Stewart has been notably more open about her personal life since starring in the popular vampire franchise, declaring that she was "so gay" during her Saturday Night Live monologue last month.
"I'm definitely proud of her," Greene tells Et. "I think I read somewhere her saying that now that she's being open and honest and kind of true to herself, that she's much happier and she feels much more comfortable."
"I feel like I hear a lot of stories when people are dealing with coming out in that way that it's -- I mean, it's something »
We'd like to forget all about the last attempt at a live-action Masters of The Universe movie. Sorry, Dolph! Great hair, though.
Welcome back to another edition of Fantasy Fridays, where two real-life best friends (Jeremy Scully and I, Mario-Francisco Robles) get together to cast/pitch our dream movies.
In the past, we've tackled everything from The Batman to the Universal Monsters.
This week, we turn our attention towards the long-gestating cinematic reboot of Masters of The Universe. Jeremy and I grew up on the classic 80s cartoon, and I had a ton of the old action figures. Yet even we knew, as children, that the 1987 movie starring Dolph Lundgren was crap. That's why we'd like to put our own spin on what the reboot should look/feel like.
Over the years, many filmmakers and various studios have tried and failed to get a Masters of The Universe movie off of the ground. »
