Is Godzilla Wearing Armor in This Latest Look at Godzilla 2?
Last month, Godzilla 2 director Mike Dougherty sent out a cryptic set photo hinting at a connection between this film and the original Godzilla that Toho created back in 1954. The director has finally re-emerged on social media to share another behind-the-scenes glimpse, which gives us a new look at the title monster, whose face is seen projected onto a large screen, above the cockpit of a plane. While the director wouldn't clarify any details about this particular shot, he did reveal that today is the 69th day of the production. And it very much looks like Godzilla is wearing some kind of protective armor in this shot, even though it is an early rendition used to give actors a point of reference.

Will we see Godzilla suiting up in a massive suit of armor to take on the three new monsters at the heart of this thriller? And if so, then

‘Arachnicide’ DVD Review

Stars: Gino Barzacchi, Gabriel Cash, Riccardo Serventi Longhi, Crisula Stafida | Directed by Paolo Bertola

Just how many giant spider movies will we get before filmmakers realise that None will beat 2000s Spiders, directed by Gary Jones (Mosquito) and starring Lana Parrilla (Once Upon a Time’s Evil Queen), which had a sequel in 2001… This week’s contender for the spider-movie crown is the Italian monster-movie Arachnicide, a title which connotes a much greater movie than this film actually is!

Yes this latest giant spider movie is an Italian horror film, however don’t expect Fulci levels of spider-based gore, this one is sadly a made-for-tv affair directed by Paolo Bertola, who has been working steadily away producing TV movies in Italy for some years. However only his 2011 film My Lai Four has made it to these shores previously, released by Scanbox (remember them?) back in 2011 as Massacre at My Lai Four.

Babylon 5: the wonder that is Stephen Furst’s Vir Cotto

Jules-Pierre Malartre Jun 28, 2017

We salute a much-loved Babylon 5 character, played by the much-missed Stephen Furst...

A little less than a year ago, in the wake of Jerry Doyle’s passing, Babylon 5 creator J.M. Straczynski made a passionate plea to the universe; too many B5 alumni had died already. Following the untimely deaths of Michael O’Hare, Richard Biggs, Andreas Katsulas, Jeff Conaway, and more recently Jerry Doyle, Straczynski was “goddamned tired of it” and he asked the universe to “knock it off for a while”.

Newswire: R.I.P. Stephen Furst, from Animal House and St. Elsewhere

Stephen Furst, an actor whose career spanned from classic comedies like Animal House, to long-running TV series like St. Elsewhere and Babylon 5, has died. According to Deadline, Furst—who served for several years as a spokesperson for the American Diabetes Association—died this week from complications related to the disease.

Furst got his first big break in 1978, when he wrangled a role for himself in the soon-to-be hit comedy National Lampoon’s Animal House.
