Failed TV pilots that paved the way for breakout hits

24 February 2015 2:32 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Had these pilots been given the green light, we might have been without Breaking Bad, 24, Hannibal, Community and more…

It’s not all grumble and moan round here when TV networks decline to pick up pilots. Sometimes, we’re even grateful.

Hindsight teaches that every so often, passing on a particular show is the best thing a channel could have done. Not ordering one pilot to series spurs its creators on to start another, and frees up its cast to join new projects.

Had the failures below all thrived, there’s a chance we could now be living in a world with no Breaking Bad, Hannibal, or even South Park. Had these pilots gone on to enjoy healthy, lengthy lives, then Jack Bauer, Oberyn Martell, Chandler Bing and more might all be unrecognisable today.

Here then, are the TV pilots we’re grateful weren’t taken to series because their »

Predestination Review

18 February 2015 4:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Directors: The Spierig Brothers

Cast: Ethan Hawke, Sarah Snook, Noah Taylor

Running Time: 95 minutes.

Certificate: 15

Synopsis: The life of a time-travelling Temporal Agent (Hawke). On his final assignment, he must pursue the one criminal that has eluded him throughout time.

For every good time travel film Primer. Looper, The Terminator, there is an equally bad one A Sound Of Thunder, Timecop, Black Knight. The latest addition for the science fiction sub-genre is Predestination, a film which on paper sounds a lot like Timecop, but in reality is a little more Twelve Monkeys. This film is a rather different kettle of fish to anything that has gone before; this isn’t your average time-travel movie.

Predestination is rather a quirky science fiction film that is selling itself as an action driven time-travel outing. Unfortunately for those intrigued by this promise, there are only a precious few minor action scenes. Viewers expecting »

Exclusive Q&A with 12 Monkeys TV Series Showrunner Terry Matalas

2 February 2015 3:35 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A little over 19 years ago, Terry Gilliam’s mind-bending sci-fi film, 12 Monkeys, hit theaters with a unique time-traveling premise and a standout performance by Brad Pitt. Those who enjoyed spending time in that post apocalyptic world can now return to it in Syfy’s 12 Monkeys TV series. Based on the iconic movie of the same name, 12 Monkeys further explores the ideas and scenarios of its source material, and for our latest Q&A, we caught up with the series’ showrunner, Terry Matalas, to talk about time travel on the small screen.

Were you initially worried about adapting such a beloved sci-fi movie? What convinced you to take this project on?

Terry Matalas: We initially said “no, let’s not do it. The movie is perfect.” But after going away for a moment and talking about what a multiple season “12 Monkeys” might be like — opening up the world, changing the tone, »

The Definitive Movies of 1995

20. Dead Man Walking

Directed by: Tim Robbins

Susan Sarandon earned herself an Oscar for her work in “Dead Man Walking,” a film directed by her then husband, Tim Robbins. She plays Sister Prejean, a nun who befriends a death row inmate named Matthew (Oscar nominated Sean Penn) as they confide in one another and build a convincing relationship as the days and hours tick down until his execution. Robbins intercuts the scenes with Sarandon and Penn with moments of the actual crime taking place, creating a storytelling rift that both supports and contradicts moments within the film, creating two very carefully drawn and developed characters. In addition to visiting him regularly, Prejean begins the crusade to find him a lawyer to make an appeal, doing all she can to delay his sentence being carried out. But, as she meets the families of the victims, she finds herself torn between right »

Bruce Willis Signs Up For Extraction

21 January 2015 2:26 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Remember when Bruce Willis used to make interesting, original movies, like Pulp Fiction, Twelve Monkeys and The Fifth Element? An air of excitement would surround each announcement detailing which project the actor would get involved with next. It’s been some time since that excitement has been felt, however, because Willis has essentially been making the same movie, repeatedly, for years. The next product from that assembly line will be Extraction, directed by Steven C. Miller (Silent Night).

The plot focuses on a father and son duo of – wait for it – CIA agents, with Willis as the seasoned elder operative who is traumatized by the – you guessed it – murder of his wife. His less-experienced CIA operative son is working with him on the manufacture of a super-weapon known as the Condor, but is thrust into the driving seat when his father, Willis, is kidnapped by terrorists. As he realizes that »

12 Monkeys: SyFy Has More Time To Stop The End Of Humanity

16 January 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

SyFy's efforts to get back into narrative programming just got a big boost from, 12 Monkeys, the episodic adaptation of a French short film and an American cult feature film. Like it's predecessors 12 Monkeys is about a time traveler from the future who is sent back to stop a deadly plague from bringing Humankind to the verge of extinction. What the show is able to do is expand this 12 Monkeys universe even more. Just as Gilliam expanded Chris Marker's short film La Jetée into his feature length film, Twelve Monkeys, the show, now has 12 episodes to expand as much as they want to. This time travel story has gone from 30 minutes, to 129 and on to a whopping 529 in just this first...

The top 20 underappreciated films of 2014

6 January 2015 4:41 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A new year of films may beckon, but there are lots of movies from 2014 you may have missed. Here's a list of 2014's most underappreciated...

There was no shortage of magnificent films in 2014 of every kind, from the expensive and explosive to the low-key and experimental. But it's a sad fact of life that not all movies do as well as they should, either because of poor distribution or simply because they'd been released at the same time as something much bigger and more star-laden.

While the list below is by no means an exhaustive one - there are plenty of great films from 2014 that we're still getting around to seeing - it's our attempt to highlight a few fine pieces of work that didn't get quite as much love as they deserved.

So without further ado - and in no particular order - we'll start with a stunning »

Will Kevin Spacey finally break Golden Globes curse with win for 'House of Cards'?

3 January 2015 8:04 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Kevin Spacey, you can finally get your Golden Globes speech ready! Both Spacey and his Netflix drama series "House of Cards" are projected to win at the Globes next Sunday (January 11). -Break- Even though Spacey has two Oscars, he has never prevailed with the Hollywood Foreign Press despite eight prior nominations. That includes the years when he won Academy Awards for his supporting performance in "The Usual Suspects" (Brad Pitt took the Globe for "Twelve Monkeys" in 1995) and his leading role in "American Beauty" (Denzel Washington won the Globe for "The Hurricane" in 1999). Related: Expect Globe wins for 'Orange is the New Black' and 'House of Cards' Our current odds have Spacey far out front for Best TV Drama Actor at 2/5. His strongest competition:  Clive Owen ("The Knick") at 7/2 and Dominic West ("The Affair") at 50/1. Last year's champ,&nbs...' »
