28 July 2015 12:14 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Netflix did not have Sense8-tional news for fans of the twisty freshman thriller at the Television Critics Association press tour on Tuesday.

Many assumed the show’s TCA panel would kick off with a Season 2 renewal announcement. Instead, executive producer J. Michael Straczynski told reporters that he’s “still awaiting word” about a pickup, adding, “We’re cautiously optimistic, but, ultimately, it’s Netflix’s call.”

13 Upcoming Netflix Original Shows To Be Excited About

28 July 2015 2:32 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios/Netflix

Netflix used to be the home of films of varying quality, ranging from classic to cult to just plain awful, and the place to catch-up on all the shows you’re supposed to have seen but never got around to.

While it is still that, and you can lose yourself for hours binging on Breaking Bad, the streaming service has over the past couple of years made a big push to produce more original content.

The likes of House of Cards and Orange is the New Black are the two biggest success stories, earning critical acclaim and challenging network and cable shows when it comes to awards season. The Netflix model, dumping all episodes onto its website at once for immediate mass consumption, has totally changed the way people watch TV.

2015 has seen that trend continue, with a string of hit new shows including Sense8, from creators »

20 July 2015 2:27 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

There has been a lot of movement, cast wise, lately on Gerard Barrett’s Glassland follow-up, Brain on Fire, over the last few day, with Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix) and Richard Armitage (The Hobbit) joining Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick Ass), Thomas Mann (the upcoming Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) and Jenny Slate (Obvious Child) for the Irish director’s account of Susannah Cahalan’s month long descent into madness. Now, the cast grows by one, with Tyler Perry (Gone Girl) joining the project, which is currently in production in Canada. All in all, this is pretty impressive line up for Barrett’s third feature. Brain on Fire is set for release sometime next year. »

Following on from the first official images which arrived online over the weekend [see here], we’ve now got some new set photos from Marvel’s currently in production Netflix series Jessica Jones, which feature Krysten Ritter’s title character alongside Mike Colter’s Luke Cage

Meanwhile, Marvel’s head of television Jeph Loeb has taken part in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, during which he discussed Marvel’s Netflix slate:

On Jessica Jones: “I think people knew, as soon as we announced Jessica Jones, Jessica Jones was based on a much more adult comic. The source material came that way. She has real problems with a number of things that she abuses! And we’re not shying away from that. There’s no tidying her up. And Krysten Ritter is killing it. And when people get a hold of what David Tennant is doing as Killgrave… There’s going to »

50 forgotten sci-fi films from the 1990s

16 July 2015 3:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We may remember Independence Day, The Matrix, The Phantom Menace. But what about these forgotten 90s sci-fi films? And are any worth seeing?

Think back to the science fiction cinema of the 1990s, and some of the decade's biggest box-office hits will immediately spring to mind: The Phantom Menace, Jurassic Park, Independence Day, Men In Black, Armageddon and Terminator 2 were all in the top 20 most lucrative films of the era.

But what about the sci-fi films of the 1990s that failed to make even close to the same cultural and financial impact of those big hitters? These are the films this list is devoted to - the flops, the straight-to-video releases, the low-budget and critically-derided. We've picked 50 live-action films that fit these criteria, and dug them up to see whether they're still worth watching in the 21st century.

So here's a mix of everything from hidden classics to forgettable dreck, »

New Us sci-fi, fantasy and horror shows for 2016

15 July 2015 3:19 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From comic-book adaptations to sci-fi, fantasy and horror. Here are the new geek-skewed shows coming to Us TV in 2016...

The world of TV has never been so crowded and, at the same time, geeks have never had it so good. As saturated as the big screen is with superhero films and sprawling shared universes, that mentality has well and truly bled onto the small screen too.

So there’s a lot of comic-book adaptations coming up in 2016 from Marvel, DC and others, but genre TV is represented across the board with science-fiction, fantasy and horror represented at pretty much every network and cable channel in the Us.

Here's some of the geek TV that will be making its way to us from the Us next year.

Sense8, Ep. 1.07 to 1.12: Convoluted plot doesn’t overshadow emotion

3 July 2015 6:06 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sense8, Season 1, Episodes 7 to 12

Created by The Wachowskis and J. Michael Straczynski

Premiered June 5th, 2015 on Netflix

In the first half of its season, Sense8 benefited greatly from the simplicity of the stories that comprised its universe. Most of the arcs weren’t deeply fleshed out and their weaknesses may have been glaring without the show’s complex architecture to keep viewers engaged. That being said, the power of the eight-part narrative structure helped hold everything together, and the Wachowskis’ virtuosity as action filmmakers made the climactic actions scenes instantly gripping, even if there wasn’t much exposition around the characters affected by them.

In the second half of the season, the potency of the action choreography hasn’t dissipated, but the structure around it has grown even more complicated, lessening its effect. The idea of law enforcement making sure Nomi gets a lobotomy is hard to believe, but the »

Say What You Will About the Academy - But Some Cool International Names Among 2015 New Member Invitees

30 June 2015 6:47 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization." In recent years, the Academy membership has »

DVD Review: 'Jupiter Ascending'

29 June 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ Both of the following are true: Jupiter Ascending (2015) is a giddy, sweeping adventure filled with interesting characters and stunning visuals; Jupiter Ascending is a frustrating experience, filled with dead ends, vanishing subplots and too much exposition. Perhaps, coming from the perennially ambitious brother and sister duo Andy and Lana Wachowski, writer-directors of The Matrix (1999) and the divisive Cloud Atlas (2012) - co-written & directed with Tom Tykwer - this is to be expected. Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) is an undocumented Russian immigrant living in Chicago, cleaning houses with her mother and aunt.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

“We are grateful to our incredible community of supporters who have helped make this museum a reality,” said Dawn Hudson, the Academy’s CEO. “Building this museum has been an Academy »

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

26 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »
