The Journey Continues today with the release of the second issue of Idw’s Galaxy Quest miniseries, and we’ve got a preview for you here…
The cast of the Galaxy Quest have enjoyed a career resurgence since returning from their intergalactic adventure, but all that is about to be interrupted by Qint, an alien with a very surprising ax to grind against Jason Nesmith and the crew of the Nsea Protector!
Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues #2 goes on sale today, priced $3.99.

Once upon a time, most movie theaters showed more than a single feature. For the price of your ticket, you’d get two movies, maybe a cartoon, sometimes a featurette. You got good value for your money in those days especially at second or third run theaters or revival houses. This was in the days before DVD, Blu-Ray, or even VHS.
In fact, for a long time, the movie studios only got one bite of the apple. Oh, a few movies might show up again; Disney did a good job of bringing classics out of their vaults. When the movies were sold to show on TV, that would also generate some revenue but nothing like today when a major part of the money made by films comes from Blu-Ray and DVD sales. (Aside: I wonder how true that will remain with Netflix and Hulu, et al.)

I love movie and television soundtracks. I’ll often use a given soundtrack while I work, letting it fuel my writing. I can’t listen to music with lyrics in them; that interferes with my process. I’ll get themes, characters, even scenes or whole plots from the music. Soundtrack music is in service of the story that the film is trying to tell; it’s a part of the narrative, heightening the emotion that’s being invoked.
I have my own particular favorites. The composers usually have a large body of work but certain key works resonate within me – Jerry Goldsmith’s Chinatown and Patton, James Horner with Field of Dreams, Shaun Davey’s Waking Ned Devine, Elmer Bernstein’s To Kill A Mockingbird (has there ever been a more beautiful and evocative theme?) and, of course, The Magnificent Seven.
I’ve also been very fond of Alan Silvestri »

Jupiter Ascending, 2015
Written and directed by The Wachowskis
In a bright and colorful future, a young destitute caretaker gets targeted by a ruthless son of a powerful family that live on a planet in need of a new heir, so she travels with a genetically engineered warrior to the planet in order to stop his tyrant reign.
In an age where comic book movies, reboots, remakes and films based on toys reign supreme, a movie like Jupiter Ascending should be praised for at least being “original”. It’s a movie that doesn’t play it safe with its $175 million budget and instead makes the sort of film one wouldn’t expect to see in this age of cinema. And who better to do this than The Wachowskis, who wowed us back in 1999 with the fantastic The Matrix, »

The sixth season of Justified keeps humming along with "Cash Game." Written by Dave Andron and VJ Boyd, and directed by Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest), the episode's crisp storytelling is reminiscent of the show's superior, even-numbered seasons, which laid out a series of parallel-seeming subplots that converged with wit and grace. Here we saw Boyd's bank robbery, Ava's informing on Boyd, the machinations of the big-bearded real-estate fixer Ty Walker, all converging. As was the case last week, we got the sense of an endgame in progress, not just for all the main characters' stories, but for Harlan County as established in the previous five seasons. Everything is changing; an old way of life is passing away. The obsession with land, ancestry, and old grudges always simmered in the background, but now it's in the foreground.The key scene might've been that conversation between Boyd and Raylan near the end »

Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues #1
Writer: Erik Burnham
Artist: Nacho Arranz
Colors: Esther Sanz
Letters: Gilberto Lazcano
When last we saw Commander Taggert and his loyal crew, they were aboard the Nsea Protector once again after an eighteen year absence. Those of us who monitor the Galaxy Quest historical documents carefully have been waiting patiently to see what adventure awaits our heroes. Though it appears video transmissions have forever gone dark, Erik Burnham and his crew have documented Galaxy Quest in an alternate, but equally pleasing manner.
Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues #1 takes place a few years after the film’s ending credits. The main conflict, however, arises due to the Commander’s decision to use the Omega 13 during the crew’s final confrontation with General Sarris. Turns out Omega 13′s ability to rearrange matter wasn’t limited to the Protector’s command deck.

Picking up where the cult movie left off, Idw launches the new four-part miniseries Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues tomorrow, and we have a preview of the first issue for you right here…
Once upon a time, a troupe of has-been actors that starred on an old sci-fi show were enlisted by an alien race to save them from an intergalactic tyrant. Despite being way out of their depth, the cast somehow managed to save the aliens and stay alive… but their actions in outer space may have had dire consequences for another world. Join us this January as the cast of Galaxy Quest returns for another bombastic journey into space!
Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues #1 is out tomorrow, priced $3.99.

Do you just want to know why that one character keeps turning up on Tumblr?

We started this website back in 2007, and since then, the names of some sequels seem to come up with reasonable regularity, albeit with no sign of the film itself. And in the time we've been going, yet more names have added themselves to the list of follow-ups that are seemingly stuck in development hell.
With the new Ghostbusters film set to escape and become a real thing in the next year or two, here's just a sample of the other projects struggling to get off the ground (with one or two edging closer to a greenlight than others...)
