‘Interstellar’ and the 10 Most Realistic Space Travel Films

6 November 2014 5:09 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A visionary epic that takes viewers from the barren dust bowl of a dying Earth to the furthest reaches of the universe, “Interstellar” is a rare film that combines speculative theory with a degree of scientific accuracy. Using realistic space flight technology to enhance the drama, Christopher Nolan’s deep-think adventure is closer to the spirit of “From the Earth to the Moon” than to pulp fantasy like “Star Wars.” As it prepares to launch wide on Nov. 7, here are 10 space travel movies that exist within the realm of possibility.

TNT developing Neil Armstrong miniseries One Giant Leap

21 September 2014 11:15 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

One small step for TV programming, One Giant Leap for mankind. Four hours of Neil Armstrong’s story are coming to telly…

Astronauts are in vogue right now in the movie making world. The memory of last year’s Gravity, a film which garnered many kind words from real space-walkers, is still very fresh. We all know that Christopher Nolan’s next movie Interstellar is set to dig out the Hollywood standard-issue spacesuits, too.

However, an astronaut telly show is something we haven’t seen for a while. American network TNT is looking to remedy that by bringing a four hour televisual biopic of Neil Armstrong to the small screen.

The miniseries, entitled One Giant Leap, will be adapted from a book by journalist Leon Wagener. Scripts will be written by Al Reinert, half of the writing team behind Apollo 13 and regular scripter for TV series From The Earth To The Moon. »

Marvel's Agents of Shield

The first photo is out of British actor Nick Blood as Agent Lance Hunter in the upcoming second season of ABC's "Marvel's Agents of Shield". Describing the character, executive producer Maurissa Tancharoen says: "Now that S.H.I.E.L.D. has fallen, Coulson has to look outside of the organization for help, and make uneasy alliances with people like Lance Hunter. Hunter is a mercenary, in it for the money, not the cause. Whether his allegiance is to anyone but himself is still in question." [Source: Et Online]

Son of Sam

Blumhouse Prods. will develop a six-hour mini-series about serial killer 'Son of Sam' for Fox TV Studios ("The Killing"). Steven Katz ("The Knick," "From the Earth to the Moon") penned the script which juxtaposes David Richard Berkowitz’s six killings with the actual police investigation in the mid 1970's in New York City.

Blumhouse Bringing Son of Sam to TV

2 September 2014 5:01 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Blumhouse Productions is moving from the big screen to the small for its latest project, which is based on Son of Sam killer David Berkowitz. Read on for the first details right here.

Deadline is reporting that Jason Blum’s production company is returning to the longform arena with another New York period piece based on a true story: miniseries "Son of Sam." Blumhouse will develop the six-hour mini with Fox TV Studios ("The Killing").

Written by Steven Katz ("The Knick," "From the Earth to the Moon"), "Son of Sam" juxtaposes David Richard Berkowitz’s murder confession of Satan worship and human sacrifice with the actual police investigation of December 1975-1977. For almost two years, the Son of Sam terrorized New York City, killing six people while eluding a massive manhunt and taunting the police with brazen letters. The spree finally came to an end in August 1977 when Berkowitz was »

Celebrate the 45th Anniversary of the Moon Landing

20 July 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Now's the time to get moonstruck. Forty-five years ago Sunday, Apollo 11's Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to set foot on another world. Armstrong's "one small step ... one giant leap" on the dusty lunar surface July 20, 1969, still stirs hearts. You can join the celebration, without needing to travel to the launch site at Florida's Kennedy Space Center, where Nasa will honor Armstrong on Monday with a renaming ceremony of the historic Operations and Checkout Building. Both Aldrin and Michael Collins, the Apollo 11 command module pilot who orbited the moon, will be there. At the very least, »

Brian Grazer Is Hustling to Keep Imagine Entertainment Relevant in Ever-Changing Hollywood

16 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s odd to see Brian Grazer chillin’.

But there he is — the frenetic mega-producer — lounging in his sprawling backyard in Santa Monica, Calif., overlooking the Riviera Country Club, munching on a breakfast of turkey bacon and eggs over easy, drinking fresh-pressed carrot juice with a touch of ginger.

Not surprisingly the zen moment quickly dissolves.

“Oh shit, can I text Mick Jagger back?” Grazer asks a reporter, suddenly bolting upright, his gold-and-white leather encased iPhone vibrating. The two are co-producing “Get On Up,” the James Brown biopic that debuts Aug. 1. Jagger’s on tour in Europe, and they’ve missed a chance to talk. “He’s so polite and British,” Grazer confides. “You have to be like, ‘How are you this morning?’ and take a beat, and then get on with it.”

Grazer prides himself on deciphering what makes a person tick. He’s spent the past three decades peppering industry titans, »

Black Box TV Review – ABC Takes On Mental Health Drama

22 April 2014 5:12 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The Black Box – ABC’s “The Black Box” stars Ditch Davey as Dr. Ian Bickman, Kelly Reilly as Catherine Black and David Ajala as Will Van Renseller. (ABC/Andrew Eccles)

Black Box, ABC‘s latest drama, feels a lot like a show created by committee, and constructed largely by piecing together ratings research of plot and character points. A little bit House, a hint of Grey’s Anatomy, and a heaping dose of the hokey, “we’re calling you stupid,” plot construction of Scandal… et voilà. Of course, if those last two are among your favorite shows, welcome to your new obsession.

Dr. Catherine Black (Kelly Reilly) is the world’s most impressive and important neurologist… or whatever. She’s so cool that she has her own facility in New York City. Known as “The Cube,” it’s all neurology, all the time, and Dr. Black runs the show. But, »

Live from Space and Cosmos: did the Earth move for you?

18 March 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

You wait years for a big TV show about space, and then two come along at the same time … but did they have the all-important 'Wow!' factor?

In lists of television's most memorable images, America's National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Nasa) generally claims three spots: the pictures of the first Moon landing in 1969, the explosion of the space shuttle Challenger in 1986 and the videos of Mars sent back by Nasa's Viking craft in the 1970s.

Despite this, space has disappeared from TV schedules for long periods. Star Trek in the Us and Doctor Who in the UK, the two most celebrated extra-terrestrial dramas, both had runs with long interruptions and – until Ron Howard's and Tom Hanks's movie Apollo 13 and their related HBO mini-series From the Earth to the Moon in the mid-90s – parents and teachers were often startled to discover that young people had no »

It’s Not TV: HBO, The Company That Changed Television: Fall and Rise

17 January 2014 10:46 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Failure is inevitable. Success is elusive.

Steven Spielberg

As HBO’s CEO, Michael Fuchs, who’d come up through the company’s programming side, had spent 11 years working to transform the service from a movie channel with some pleasant original filler into a true programming platform. Ironically, Fuchs’ vision wouldn’t come to full fruit until after he’d left the company in May 1995, and it would happen under a guy who had no programming experience at all: Jeff Bewkes, who took over the CEO’s slot after Fuchs’ departure.

A friend of mine in the company who’d worked with Bewkes once explained his programming philosophy while we were talking about some of the company’s big dollar extravaganzas, like Band of Brothers. Bewkes didn’t interfere with the creative side. “If you can make it make business sense to him, Jeff’ll say, ‘Go ahead.’ If you can »

It’s Not TV: HBO, The Company That Changed Television: Golden Age: Part 3

8 January 2014 6:56 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It said something about HBO’s elevating stature as a programmer that the company strategy was no longer catch-as-catch-can. HBO now found itself in the enviable position of being able to afford to turn shows down based on its view the project was – in the phrase I was coming to hear more and more often – “an HBO show.” Like the old joke about art, nobody could define what that meant, but they knew it when they saw it.

Case in point:

In 1996, HBO rolled out Arli$$ (1996-2002). Like The Larry Sanders Show, Arli$$ came from the off-kilter imagination of a stand-up comic, in this case Robert Wuhl, who also starred. In synopsis – and no doubt why HBO was interested – Arli$$ sounded like a sports version of The Larry Sanders Show. Wuhl played Arliss Michaels, a top-flight sports agent with the integrity of a hired killer moving through the circles of »
