The New Golden Age of Studio Science-Fiction is Upon Us

19 October 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Blade Runner 2049” is going to struggle to make it past the $100 million mark at the domestic box office, hardly the response Warner Bros. was looking for given the film’s estimated $300 million production and marketing budget. In a way, the odds were always against “2049” given that its predecessor was also a financial disappointment and only went on to become a cult classic with a very specific demographic of moviegoers. “Blade Runner” is no multi-generational favorite a la “Star Wars” or “Jurassic Park.”

But while the sequel is a box office dud, it’s unquestionably a huge step in the right direction for studio filmmaking.

October Horrors 2017 Day 19 – Frailty (2001)

19 October 2017 4:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Frailty, 2001.

Directed by Bill Paxton.

Starring Bill Paxton, Matthew McConaughey, Powers Boothe, Matt O’Leary, and Jeremy Sumpter.

Synopsis:

A young man arrives at the Dallas offices of the FBI claiming to have vital information regarding the elusive “God’s Hand” killer who has been terrorising the local area. Speaking with the agent in charge of the investigation, the young man spins a tale of religious fanaticism, murder and family loyalty where the truth is perhaps stranger than fiction.

Earlier this year we bid a sad farewell to the popular cult actor Bill Paxton. From his collaborations with James Cameron including but not limited to Aliens and Titanic, his work in blockbusters like Apollo 13 and Twister to his critically acclaimed performance in the TV series Big Love, Paxton was a supremely talented and loveable actor who will be sorely missed.

So as a tribute to the late Mr. Paxton, »

‘Stranger Things’: 19 Totally ‘80s Pop Culture References That Should Be in Season 2

18 October 2017 2:10 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Stranger Things 2” returns just in time for Halloween, both in the real world and in the eerie town of Hawkins, Indiana conceived in the nostalgic minds of The Duffer Brothers. The action picks up three days before Halloween 1984, which means that the year will soon be coming to a close. For those who may not have been alive or perhaps have a shaky memory of the time, 1984 was a big year for memorable events and in pop culture.

The first season reveled in bringing the time period alive in all of its totally ‘80s glory, from Dungeons & Dragons gaming sessions and Eggo waffles to homages to “E.T.,” “The Shining,” and “Rambo.” Hell, even star Winona Ryder’s presence is a timely tribute since she made her early career in such iconic ‘80s films as “Lucas,” “Beetlejuice,” and “Heathers.”

Aliens, 1986.

Directed by James Cameron.

After her warnings about the monstrous creatures that killed her crew go unheeded, Ellen Ripley, the sole survivor of the Nostromo, is recruited by the military to return to the cursed alien planet when a human colony on the planet suddenly goes quiet. Upon arrival to the hostile planet, Ripley and her new allies are confronted with a whole army of the acid-blooded creatures that quickly threaten to wipe them out unless a way to escape the planet can be found, and fast.

Horror films have a knack for making sequels that suck. For every good film like Halloween, you’ll normally get about a dozen mediocre or terrible sequels. However, this is not always the case.

The Walking Dead Producer Compares The Show To Terminator And Aliens

6 October 2017 8:08 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As is often said, the traditional prestige surrounding movies has switched to TV in recent years, with many successful television dramas such as Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad and several more being acclaimed for their cinematic quality. Another example, of course, is The Walking Dead. AMC’s zombie drama has had its ups and downs, sure, but it’s always been more thrilling, emotional, scary and darker than the average film occupying theaters these days.

The show’s producer, Gale Anne Hurd, agrees – and she should know. Hurd is a prolific movie and TV producer who’s worked on numerous productions such as Aliens and The Terminator over the years. While chatting with Cinema Blend, she was asked how The Walking Dead compares to the celebrated action movies she’s been responsible for. In reply, she sang the show’s praises, in particular citing the longer runtime as a big plus. »

Stranger Things season 2 poster has a traditional Halloween theme, offers potential clues

It’s almost time to return to Hawkins, Indiana with Stranger Things Season 2 premiering later this month, and Netflix has had an absolute blast calling back to classic horror franchises with their promotional material. The marketing for this upcoming season has got to be one of the most creative campaigns in recent memory, and while this brand new poster isn’t an homage, it’s still quite appropriate for the Halloween season; in fact, this poster may also give us a tiny hint about the antagonists of this season. Check out the poster here…

Shawn Levy suggests that Stranger Things could run for 5 seasons

1 October 2017 3:56 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in August Netflix announced that it had renewed its hit supernatural drama Stranger Things for a third season, with creators The Duffer Brothers then revealing that a fourth season would likely be its last.

While this was sad news for fans of the show (and presumably Netflix execs), executive producer Shawn Levy has now suggested that a fifth season remains a possibility.

“Hearts were heard breaking in Netflix headquarters when the Brothers made four seasons sound like an official end, and I was suddenly getting phone calls from our actors’ agents,” said Levy in an interview with EW. “The truth is we’re definitely going four seasons and there’s very much the possibility of a fifth. Beyond that, it becomes I think very unlikely.”

Why Do So Many Sequels Disappoint?

1 October 2017 2:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Neil Calloway looks at why so few sequels are better than the films that precede them…

With the advance word on Blade Runner 2049 good, with some saying it’s at least the equal of the original (read our review here), it’s got me thinking why so few sequels surpass the first film.

In theory, it should be simple; you don’t have to introduce the characters, their relationships and the setting of the movie. In place of exposition, you should have excitement. It rarely works like that, of course. You might not have to introduce all the characters, but the equilibrium reached at the end of the first film has to be disrupted, and more often than not a sequel does it in an unnatural, unbelievable way.

When a second film is greenlit, it faces an uphill struggle; given that the original film was so good it demanded »

‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’: Ranking the Crew, From Picard to Pulaski

30 September 2017 1:15 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Thirty years ago, “Star Trek” proved it wasn’t just a story about Kirk and Spock; it was a story universe rich with possibilities, including a whole new cast of characters.

Ranking the men and women of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” is a far more brutal task than initially anticipated because, as the series kept telling us the whole time, this wasn’t a crew. This was a family. That said, let’s be honest. Family might inspire love on an equal playing field, but when it comes to actually spending time with people, favorites do emerge.

This is strictly limited to those who served as actual crew members (sorry, Q and Lwaxana Troi) because one of the best things about “Trek’s” approach to a military structure is how it still allows the show to celebrate individual personalities. Because as much fun as space travel is, a “Trek »

James Cameron Continues To Bash Wonder Woman

28 September 2017 7:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In a turn of events that will likely surprise nobody at all, the popular press has continued to question James Cameron on his response to Wonder Woman, and the director has continued to dismiss the hit film as regressive.

Despite Patty Jenkins answering Cameron’s original comments with her own rebuttal, The Hollywood Reporter has handed the microphone of public discourse back to the Titanic filmmaker, in an interview to promote the fact that he’s now in production on Avatar 2 and 3, while also preparing to shepherd Terminator 6 as screenwriter and producer.

“Yes, I’ll stand by that. I mean, she was Miss Israel, and she was wearing a kind of bustier costume that was very form-fitting. She’s absolutely drop-dead gorgeous. To me, that’s not breaking ground. They had Raquel Welch doing stuff like that in the ’60s. It was all in a context of talking »
