The eight arms of a giant octopus could not stop him. The mighty jaws of Crocosaurus proved no match for him. If Mega Shark is The Asylum’s very own Godzilla, then it should come as no shock that the next logical step in this franchise would be Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark.
The battle between the ocean’s ultimate apex mega predator and his aquatic android doppelganger begins on Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD January 28th.
FX guru Emile Edwin Smith directs from a script by Jose Prendes (The Haunting of Whaley House) as Elisabeth Rohm (“Angel”, “Law & Order”), Christopher Judge (“Stargate Sg-1”, Age of Hobbits), and original Mega Shark heroine Debbie Gibson contend with the Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla of Asylum monsterdom.
Going by the trailer, the movie is either about the military building a giant robot Megalodon shark to kill the mega shark once and for all, or it »
Canadian filmmaker Cj Wallis dropped us a line this week to let us know about Bb, a new project he's about to commence shooting, and offered us the chance to debut its promo trailer. We have it right here along with more info on the film.
Accompanying the red band teaser video are several promo posters and photos plus a behind-the-scenes look at star Jennifer Mae in New Orleans.

We are shooting in Los Angeles for about seven days in January, and I'll have it finished by the absolute latest February 23, 2014 (my b-day)." Ryan Nicholson, known for his special makeup effects work on "Stargate Sg-1," "The X-Files," and "Supernatural," is helping out with the effects Wallis mentioned.

It’s no secret that sci-fi is proving to be the most popular and lucrative genre of the industry right now. Frankly, I’m surprised audiences aren’t sick of every new breed of alien or superhero that gets thrown at them, often accompanied with flimsy plots and mediocre acting. God knows the number of science fiction shows that have ultimately ended up biting the bullet, simply because they couldn’t hold on to their viewers long enough. Or maybe they held on too long, proving that sometimes it’s best to let go (I’m looking at you, Stargate Sg-1).
But every once in a while there comes a period of genuinely entertaining science fiction media, and it looks as though the 2013/2014 season is going to be one of those periods. The success that established sci-fi shows have garnered seems to be acting as a beacon for a number of new projects, »

Stargate, as many of you I’m sure remember, was a 1994 movie which circled around a gigantic ring made of unknown metal and covered in what is believed to be Egyptian hieroglyphs that is discovered buried in the sands of Giza, Egypt in during an archeological expedition in 1928. The purpose of the ring remained a mystery for sixty years, its hieroglyphs untranslatable. Finally a brilliant linguist and archaeologist specializing in Egyptology named Daniel Jackson (James Spader) is co-opted by the U.S. government and brought to Cheyenne Mountain (home of Norad) to decipher the scrawlings on the ring, which has been brought there for study and possible use by the military.
He tells the assembled scientists and military officers (including United States Air Force Colonel Jack O’Neil (Kurt Russell) that the hieroglyphs »

The Millers, which premiered Thursday (8:30/7:30c), features the welcome return of Will Arnett (Arrested Development) and Margo Martindale (Justified). But is the show itself a welcome treat, or did the flatulence-happy sitcom stink?
Much of the early buzz around CBS’ new multi-cam comedy from Greg Garcia (My Name is Earl, Raising Hope) centered on Emmy-winner Martindale and her gassy behavior in the pilot. Martindale plays Carol, the matriarch of the Miller family, whose prodigal son Nathan (Arnett) disrupts the whole family’s flow by revealing that he divorced his wife (to be played in later episodes by Happy Endings‘ Eliza Coupe). In response, »

Roland Emmerich - who directed the original 1994 movie - recently told Digital Spy that he had "proposed" a new movie reboot trilogy.
"My gut instinct tells me the studio would love to follow the Star Trek model - take an established property, re-imagine it for the big screen, and make hundreds of millions of dollars," Mallozzi - a writer and executive producer on Stargate Sg-1, Stargate: Atlantis and Stargate Universe - wrote in a recent blog.
"If the studio does consider going down this route, careful consideration will present two indisputable facts: a) Stargate is not Star Trek, and b) alienating long-time fans in favour of a new audience could prove disastrous."
Mallozzi claimed that "a new television series would be the best way to go", suggesting "a fresh take on Stargate that would bring in »
Doctor Who began airing on November 23, 1963. This year it will celebrate its 50th anniversary. That’s a hell of a long time by many measures, and it’s almost an eternity in TV years. It was several years before I was born, and I’m willing to bet it was several decades before most of our readers were born. The amount of time that has passed can therefore be somewhat hard to get a handle on, so let’s see if we can break it down into digestible segments for us so that we can better appreciate this accomplishment and get a real sense of the distance between 1963 and 2013.
To start with something very Us-centric, consider that Doctor Who began airing the day after President John F Kennedy was killed. New episodes of the old series aired during the administrations of Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and George Hw Bush. »

Filmmaker Roland Emmerich is heading back to the Independence Day well with the sequel ID Forever/Independence Day 2, and for years now it’s been rumored that he might do the same on his less-successful sci-fi movie franchise, Stargate. Emmerich’s 1994 feature stars Kurt Russell (Fast & Furious 7) and James Spader (Avengers: Age of Ultron) as members of a pioneer expedition that uses a centuries-old interstellar teleportation device – one uncovered during an archaeological excavation – in order to travel to a distant alien world.
Stargate grossed a respectable $196.5 million worldwide in theaters ($71 million in the U.S.), but ended up spawning multiple TV spinoffs – Stargate Sg-1, Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe – rather than ...

Stargate was a moderate hit for MGM back in 1994, bringing in $196 million at the worldwide box office. It never got a sequel, instead spawning a number of syndicated television spin-offs. That wasn't the original plan, though, as director and co-writer of the movie explains in a new interview.
Roland Emmerich claims he always had a trilogy in mind for the sci-fi epic, but that never came to fruition. While he is planning direct sequels to his other sci-fi hit Independence Day, he thinks its impossible to do the same with Stargate, as the original story's continuation needs to be immediate and the actors are far too old to return now.
Instead, the director is planning a whole new reboot that will consist of three film's bringing his original trilogy plans to the screen for the first time. This is what Roland Emmerich told Digital Spy about his plans to keep working in the Stargate universe. »

Thomas J. McLean is an AwardsLine contributor. Although sci-fi, horror and fantasy programs have long been among the most popular with viewers, popularity with Emmy voters has been tougher to come by. For every Game Of Thrones—which earned 17 Emmy noms, including drama series—there’s a Walking Dead left nearly empty-handed. In fact, AMC’s zombie-apocalypse drama earned just two below-the-line noms, despite a critically acclaimed performance from leading man Andrew Lincoln and a record-breaking year in ratings. Related: Emmys: Drama Series Overview It’s little comfort knowing that The Walking Dead is far from alone. The series is following an Emmy pattern established by hugely popular and influential TV franchises—such as Star Trek, Stargate Sg-1 and Buffy The Vampire Slayer—that earned awards attention almost exclusively for visual effects, sound, music and makeup. And when it comes to the most visible Primetime Emmy categories, a mere handful »

Juliette's Farscape look-back considers which was its best season, a tricky decision to make...
This feature contains Farscape spoilers.
Usually, when we sit down to think about the best season of a show, we have an answer in mind. Perhaps there are two seasons that are particularly good but we have a personal preference, perhaps one particular season is clearly head and shoulders above the rest. But an answer, however debateable it might be, usually presents itself fairly quickly.
Not so with Farscape.
Farscape was a remarkably consistent series, which maintained a certain level of quality throughout its run. That isn’t to say all seasons were completely equal. Like all shows, it took a while to find its feet, to set its tone and for its characters to get bedded in to their roles. Season one, then, isn’t the best season. Although »
