‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Episode 4 Recap: Boots on the Ground

20 September 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler alert: Do not read until you watch “Fear the Walking Dead,” Season one, episode four, titled “Not Fade Away.”

With nary a walker in sight, Sunday’s fourth episode of “Fear the Walking Dead” was a somber yet gripping look at the effect a large-scale disaster has on a small community. Closer in spirit to the mournful apocalyptic drama “The Day After” than to “Resident Evil,” this utterly absorbing installment expands the emotional scope of AMC’s zombie franchise, and introduces something that’s been missing from the spin-off so far: an actual plot.

Carefully structured like a standalone short story, the episode – titled “Not Fade Away” – opens to the melancholic sound of Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day,” a song that begins as an ode to life’s simple pleasures, but ends with the ominous warning: “You’re going to reap just what you sow.”

The Change-Up: Singh Sleepwalks Through Sci-Fi Stock

Time is not on anyone’s side in director Tarsem Singh’s latest blunder through familiar material, Self/less, a mash-up of recycled sci-fi tropes drained of innovation or potential potency. Issues of class, identity, and health insurance get chugged through the blender of David and Alex Pastor’s script, the directing/screenwriting duo’s foray into the English language. Singh, known for expressively beautiful visuals, presents his most demurely dressed feature to date, though his usual ocular trickery may have offered a slight reprieve from the crushing banality of the laughably conservative moral fable proffered here.

Damian (Ben Kingsley) heads his own self-built empire, but finds he’s been diagnosed with cancer and doesn’t have much longer to live. He has a troubled relationship with his daughter, Claire (Michelle Dockery), but finds he’s not quite ready to call it quits. »

Michael Crichton's Micro heading to the movies

28 June 2015 10:37 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With Jurassic World still breaking records, Michael Crichton's final novel - Micro - has been snapped up for a film adaptation...

The late Michael Crichton probably would have enjoyed the fact that the latest Jurassic Park sequel - Jurassic World - is proving an even bigger box office draw than the first film. The author died in 2008, and the book he was working on at the time, Micro, was subsequently completed by Richard Preston, and then published in 2011. It proved, as many of Crichton's books did, to be a bestseller.

We can't say we really got on with the book, the sees students arriving to work a biotech company in Hawaii, only to find themselves miniaturised. But its success has tempted DreamWorks Studios (not, we should note, DreamWorks Animation) to open its chequebook. It's acquired the film rights to Micro, and Frank Marshall will be producing the adaptation. Sherri »

Film Rights to Michael Crichton’s Micro Acquired by DreamWorks Studios

26 June 2015 3:17 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

From The Andromeda Strain to Jurassic Park to Prey and beyond, the late Michael Crichton offered readers numerous gateways to intelligent escapism on the printed page. Published posthumously, 2011's Micro is no exception. DreamWorks Studios seems to agree, as the company has picked up the film rights to the thriller.

Press Release: "Los Angeles--(Business Wire)--DreamWorks Studios has acquired the film rights to the Michael Crichton novel, “Micro,” it was announced today by Michael Wright, CEO of DreamWorks Studios. Frank Marshall is on board to produce, with Sherri Crichton and Laurent Bouzereau set as executive producers for CrichtonSun LLC.

The high-concept thriller follows a group of graduate students lured to Hawaii to work for a mysterious biotech company—only to find themselves miniaturized and cast out into the rain forest, with nothing but their scientific expertise and wits to protect them.

"Micro" was unfinished when Michael Crichton passed »
