Flash Forward (1996–1997)
What is the biggest change in the industry since you started?
The stigma of TV has shifted dramatically. It’s really exciting; it feels like the Wild West right now. The best writers seem to be heading toward television. I’m open to anything. I think a long-term TV show is probably not for me, but doing a few years of something could be interesting.
Is “Hell or High Water” different from your other films?
I don’t usually watch my own films, but this one I’ve seen twice.
Just when I decided that maybe DC’s “Rebirth” might possibly be worthy – yes, I know, I had the same hopes for Batman v Superman – the other shoe dropped. Back in the 1990s I perceived DC as a centipede, with (obviously) 100 shoes to drop. Now, I’m thinking millipede.
In case you haven’t heard, DC decided to “reimagine” (lord how I hate that word) the classic Hanna-Barbera characters. Sort of like what Archie Comics just did with Archie but, in this case, totally needless.
I have little if any strong attachment to the H-b characters. Even as a kid I knew cheap, shitty animation and sub-standard writing. I loved Rocky and Bullwinkle, which employed even cheaper animation, but after mildly enjoying the first season of The Flintstones I decided life was too short – I was 10 years old – and
Stone is used to supernatural action comedies thanks to her role in "Zombieland," while former Ghostbuster himself Bill Murray personally championed her for a role. Ultimately though Stone wasn't a part of filmmaker Paul Feig's ensemble which includes Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon and Chris Hemsworth.
In a new interview with The Wall Street Journal though, Stone reveals that she was offered a role but actually turned it down as she'd just come off from doing "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" and wasn't prepared to make a huge commitment like that again right away:
"The script was really funny. It just didn't feel like the right time for me. A franchise is a big commitment - it's a whole thing. I
In Kill Your Darlings, Radcliffe plays a collegiate-age Ginsberg just as he’s meeting influential fellow Beat Generation founders Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston) and Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan). From the looks of it, Radcliffe is pitch-perfect as the tweedy Ginsberg… well,
Sanctuary returns to Syfy in the Us and Space in Canada in a few hours with its season four premiere ‘Tempus.’ It promises to be a drammatic opener with Dr. Helen Magnus (Amanda Tapping) trapped in the past and the rest of the sanctuary team trying to control abnormals in their own backyard and streaming out of Hollow Earth.
Flash forward thirteen episodes and Sanctuary fans will be anticipating what looks like being an equally epic season finale. CinemaSpy was at the shoot for that episode, ‘Sanctuary for None,’ at Vancouver’s Terminal City location (where parts of the Stargate Universe episode ‘Blockade’ were filmed) during the final days of shooting. We managed to snap a few shots of that rarest of rare sights: Sanctuary on location and at night. You can check out the little that we could give away below.
Sources confirm to Zap2it that Joss Whedon alum Jewel Staite has now joined the esteemed list. Staite is certainly a mainstay in the sci-fi/fantasy arena, having starred on Whedon's "Firefly" and "Serenity" as Kaylee and on "Stargate: Atlantis" as Dr. Jennifer Keller. (Some of us non sci-fi folks also remember her from the short-lived but totally awesome '90s series "Flash Forward" with Ben Foster.)
Staite will appear in the third episode this season, set to air Oct. 7, as a childhood friend of Sam's (Jared Padalecki) who he encounters on a hunt. The story will involve flashbacks -- there's no word yet on who will play the younger version of Staite's character, Amy, but
Consider Galactica. Specials aside, the show only lasted four seasons and its relentlessly dark atmosphere outlived its appeal for some viewers. Few fans of television science fiction would argue, however, that it was not a breath of fresh air for the space opera subgenre. Then there is Stargate Atlantis. The first spin-off from Stargate Sg-1 did not last as long as its record-setting predecessor.
As the central character on this week's series premiere of FlashForward, FBI agent Mark Benford has been placed in charge of determining what the heck is going on around the world.
Why did everyone black out at the same time, see a vision of themselves on April 29, 2010 and then wake up with no idea what happened?
Benford has taken the lead on the case due to the images in his flash forward: he was alone in his office (drinking, but don't mention that to his wife), trying to piece together clues that will solve this global riddle. Below, we've compiled episode still from Mark's vision.

The second episode saw a slight dip once it was in competition with new episodes of NBC comedies, Survivor and Bones, but the second episode still earned 3.78 million viewers. The real test was the third episode. Would the numbers continue to drop, especially since the series premiere of Flash Forward on ABC was the time slot's top show with more than 12 million viewers?
MTV talked to showrunners Brannon Braga and David Goyer about Flash Forward, and found out how exactly the series was born. Believe it or not, the idea of a global event inducing fear in everyone came from the 9/11 attack.
First, “v.” Bruckheimer’s “high-concept police procedural” is being penned by Chris Levinson, best known for his work on “Charmed” and various iterations of “Law and Order.” I happen to have a lot of faith in Levinson’s ability to craft a smart, edgy story, I’m just not sure I can get behind another cop drama. ABC wouldn’t have greenlit it if there wasn’t some interesting catch,
The FlashForward series opener, penned by comic book movie writer David Goyer and Star Trek journeyman Brannon Braga, begins with a proverbial smorgasbord of perspective. There were familiar faces: Joseph Fiennes, John Cho (the new Sulu) and Sonya Walger (Penny from Lost).
A quiet, common suburb where a family is parting for the day.
A pier featuring a man that’s lost all hope and can only see one quick, decisive path out.
A church, where a father laments the loss of his
A normal day in Los Angeles turns distressing when the whole population of the world just blacks out all at once. We meet FBI agent Mark Benford (Joseph Fiennes) with his partner Demetri Noh (John Cho) in a car chase being monitored by their boss Stanford Wedeck (Courtney B. Vance). Then there's Mark's wife, Dr. Olivia Benford (Sonya Wagner) right in the middle of surgery with her colleague Dr. Bryce Varley (Zachary Knighton) weighing a decision that would change his life.
The year is 1945, the closing stages of WW2, and a German scientist by the name of Klausener is working on a frightening new technology the power to create an immortal Nazi army.
Flash forward to present day, and a Nato task force is hurriedly deployed to Eastern Europe, where a sinister enemy appears to be mercilessly killing everything in its path. But this is no ordinary foe.
Only Helena, a gutsy investigator on the trail of notorious war-criminal Klausener, accepts the reality of what they are facing a battalion of Nazi Storm-Troopers, a veritable zombie army on the march.
