Tony Black on the original of Wells vs. The Ripper…
It’s been quite the week for time travel TV shows, as first NBC’s Timeless dropped a trailer (and if that show could have more cliches, I’d love to know how), the announcement that Jeremy Carver has jumped from the good ship Supernatural to head up a TV version of Dennis Quaid/Jim Caviezel 2000 thriller Frequency (I know, you’ve never heard of it, but don’t worry), and now the trailer for Time After Time has landed on ABC. Anyone who’s seen it will understand the concept is simply thus: Hg Wells actually invented that time machine he wrote about *in* The Time Machine and when it’s knicked by his mate, none other than the world’s most infamous serial killer Jack the Ripper, Wells must follow him forward in time to the present day »

“Time won’t let me, oh, no.” • The Outsiders, 1965
“Time is on my side, yes it is.” • Kai Winding and his Orchestra (featuring Cissy Houston, Dionne Warwick and Dee Dee Warwick), Irma Thomas, The Rolling Stones, Michael Bolton, Cat Power, Blondie, Wilson Pickett, the O’Jays, Paul Revere and the Raiders, Kim Wilson, Tracy Nelson, Patti Smith, others
I just finished reading my buddy Johnny O’s column about the currently ubiquitous genre of time travel – and by the way, Johnny O, one of my favorite movies is Time After Time as well, which, by the way, was directed by Nicholas Meyer. On the strength of this he got to direct Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, thus reviving the franchise both on the big and small screens.

There's warriors like Christopher Lloyd's Kruge in "Star Trek III: The Search For Spock," and then there are talky villains like Khan in both "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan" (Ricardo Montalban) and "Star Trek: Into Darkness" (Benedict Cumberbatch). And then, of course, you have talky warriors like Christopher Plummer's Chang in "Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country."For Krall, a new villain brought to "Star Trek: Beyond" by Idris Elba, the Enterprise is going head-to-head with someone who is pure warrior. And it won't be good for her crew."What's interesting about him is that he has a real beef with what the Enterprise stands for," Elba recently told Entertainment Weekly's Darren Franich. "Krall's a character who's deeply steeped in hatred in my opinion, a well-earned hatred for the Federation."In »

Since the announcement of a new Star Trek series from CBS, we’ve heard a few details on the creative team behind the next chapter of the long-running sci-fi franchise – which includes former Deep Space Nine and Voyager writer Bryan Fuller as showrunner, along with Nicholas Meyer (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan) on the writing staff – but so far there’s been a complete lockdown on information about the show itself.
Well, we may now have one nugget of information about the setting for the series, with Birth.Movies.Death posting a rumour suggesting that it will take place between the events of Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country and Star Trek: The Next Generation. Furthermore, it will exist in the original timeline, rather than that of the NuTrek continuity established by J.J. Abrams’ 2009 reboot.
The site also goes on to suggest that the new series will be heavily serialized, »

Cannes — Starring Dustin Hoffman as Giovanni de Medici and Richard Madden as his son, Cosimo, co-created by Frank Spotnitz (“The X-Files,” “The Man in the High Castle”) and Nicholas Meyer (“Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan”) and lead produced by Italy’s Lux Vide “Medici” is sold worldwide by Wild Bunch’s newly-created television divison, Wild Bunch TV. Indeed, a “passion project” for Wild Bunch, “Medici: Masters of Florence” is the first international long-running TV brand it is bringing to the market, Wild Bunch’s Diana Bartha said at the MipDrama Screenings.
It also proved one of their highlights. That was not perhaps so difficult. The series, which will air on Rai last quarter, and has already been renewed for a second season, is shot in the very same places the Medicis knew and frequented near six centuries ago: Costumes, decor, the embroidered cloth on which Cosimo and Contessina »

There are hundreds of different movie trivia books out there, but not often do authors specifically focus on the horror/Sci-Fi/monster categories. Enter The Monster Book Of Movie Monster Trivia by Philip Cerreta (Aventine Press). The self-described “only movie monster survival guide/quiz book of its kind” intrigued us at the office, and we thought it would be fun to bring the book along on the car ride to the Silver Scream Festival.
It may have been that mystery bag of candy we consumed at that sketchy gas station, but this quiz book ended up leaving a bad taste in our mouths. Let me first say that we did look forward to reading this when it first arrived. We love quizzing each other on a regular basis here at the office, especially when it comes to horror and all things monsters. But the way Cerreta tackles writing the questions »
