Exploring Disney's fascinating dark phase of the 70s and 80s

Ryan Lambie Dec 7, 2016

Space horror in The Black Hole. Animated death in The Black Cauldron. Ryan looks back at a unique period in Disney's filmmaking history...

When George Lucas started writing Star Wars in the early 70s, the space saga was intended to fill a void left behind by westerns, pirate movies and the sci-fi fantasy of old matinee serials. "Disney had abdicated its rein over the children's market," Lucas once said, according to Peter Biskind's book, Easy Riders, Raging Bulls, "and nothing had replaced it."

Indeed, Disney was one of many Hollywood studios that Lucas had approached with Star Wars and they, just like Universal, United Artists and everyone other than 20th Century Fox boss Alan Ladd Jr, had turned it down flat. »

‘The Black Hole’ Remake Might Be Too Dark For the Colorful World of Disney (Right Now)

3 November 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Seven years ago the team behind Tron: Legacy, director Joseph Kosinski and producer Sean Bailey, started working on a remake of The Black Hole. The screenwriter behind PassengersJon Spaihts, was later hired for a rewrite on the sci-fi project. It’s been a while since we’ve heard any news about Disney’s reimagining of Gary Nelson‘s 1979 film, but Spaihts recently informed us of […]

Alien: Covenant and Prometheus - making sense of their plots

Ryan Lambie Nov 4, 2016

What was Prometheus all about? What can we expect from Alien: Covenant? Ryan looks at the series' inspirations to build up a theory...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for Prometheus, and possible spoiler-filled conjecture for Alien: Covenant.

On one level, Prometheus was everything you might have expected from an Alien movie: a space slasher film where a bunch of explorers are pursued and physically invaded by something slippery from beyond the stars. Yet Ridley Scott's Alien prequel also seemed to have lots more on its mind: aliens fiddling with the building blocks of life, meditations on what lies beyond the curtain of death, and copious dollops of silky black goo.

Prometheus toyed with weighty themes, yet left plenty of specifics frustratingly obscure. What happened on the planetoid Lv-223 that led all those Engineers to die in a heap? »

The wonderful weirdness of the 1978 Doctor Strange TV movie

1 November 2016 8:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mike Cecchini Nov 4, 2016

Despite what you may have heard, the 1978 Doctor Strange TV movie is one of Marvel's better early TV efforts...

Marvel's 1978 Doctor Strange TV movie (officially known as Dr. Strange) is admittedly, something of an acquired taste, but there's an undeniable charm and air of mystery about it.

It's a deliberately paced origin story set in New York City that's light on action and long on exposition and sometimes questionable special effects. The eastern elements of Strange's origin are scrubbed in favour of Arthurian overtones with Morgan le Fay (Jessica Walter playing not necessarily the Marvel Comics version) as the villain and The Ancient One replaced by "Lindmer" a mentor who is, essentially, Merlin (wonderfully played by Sir John Mills). Clyde Kusatsu's Wong isn't a robed manservant, but an ally and student of the Ancient One, »

Event Horizon: from doomed ship to cult gem

5 July 2016 6:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 7, 2016

Marred by a troubled production, Event Horizon was a box office flop in 1997. But time has been kind to the sci-fi horror, Ryan writes...

In the spring of 1997, movie journalism was dominated by discussions of doomed ships. James Cameron’s Titanic, originally scheduled for the lucrative 4th July slot that summer, had suffered yet another delay. It added fuel to the growing speculation that Cameron was at the helm of a potential disaster akin to Heaven's Gate. The cost of making the movie had swollen to such huge levels - $200m according to some accounts, and possibly higher according to others - that the financial burden was shouldered by two of Hollywood’s biggest studios, Fox and Paramount.

Speaking to the La Times in April that year, Titanic’s first assistant director Sebastian Silva admitted that “The horror stories are true” - referring to the news of an unhappy cast and crew, »
