Junkfood Cinema: Guardians of the Galaxy Quest

Lone Star Cinema: Spy Kids

27 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

When the recent news broke that Alexa Vega will play a recurring character on the upcoming season of country music soap Nashville, now seemed like a perfect time to revisit the original Spy Kids. I tend to picture Vega as she appeared in the Robert Rodriguez film, but she has grown much since then. She's even married... twice.

In 2001, she and co-star Daryl Sabara (whose first role was as Murphy's baby on '90s cultural touchstone, Murphy Brown) played Carmen and Juni Cortez, troubled private-school kids. Their parents Ingrid (Carla Gugino, Karen Sisco, Sucker Punch) and Gregorio (Antonio Banderas) are consultants who have not yet admitted to the children that they used to be secret agents (who met cute at the Hotel Belen, better known as the Omni Hotel downtown). 

When evil genius/children's TV show host Floop (a colorful Alan Cumming, The Good Wife, X-Men 2) and his Minion (Tony Shalhoub, »

10 Biggest Movie And TV News This Week (Aug 23)

22 August 2014 11:58 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Welcome to the latest edition of the weekly WhatCulture.com News Brief! This column is dedicated to gathering the week’s biggest movie and TV news, and compiling them (with the occasional snarky commentary) for your reading pleasure. You’re welcome.

Overall this felt like a relatively slow week compared to what we’ve already seen throughout August, but it was all about quality over quantity this week. We may not have gotten much, but what we got was pretty great, and definitely worth talking about. On the TV side of things, we have renewals for some of the season’s hottest new and returning shows, some casting information for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (people still watch that, right?) and a bit of news regarding a Minority Report TV series form Steven Spielberg.

On the film side of things, we have some major casting news for Andy Serki’s Jungle Book film, »

Galaxy Quest To Get A Sequel Comic In 2015

22 August 2014 5:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Earlier this month, we reported that the cast and crew of the 1999 cult classic Galaxy Quest were open to returning for a sequel, and we were frankly pretty excited about the idea. Now, by Grabthar’s hammer, it’s actually happening… in the form of a comic book. That’s still exciting, right? Maybe?

According to Comic Book Resources, Idw Publishing will put out a Galaxy Quest ongoing series from Ghostbusters and Shooting Star comics writer Erik Burnham and artist Nacno Arranz, which will hit store shelves in 2015.

Burnham recently talked a bit about the direction of the book, and how it connects with the film, saying:

“Well, at the end of their movie, Tim Allen’s character, Jason, used the Omega 13 device to rewind time 13 seconds and undo the catastrophic death of his crew. (Um… sorry for the 15 year-old spoilers!) Messing with time. Maybe that affected more than the ship. »

Galaxy Quest to get a sequel comic in 2015

21 August 2014 1:27 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this month a few of the cast members from the 1999 cult comedy Galaxy Quest got together and told MTV that they were interested in making a sequel. Now, we have word that it’s actually happening, but not in the medium you may expect.

Galaxy Quest was a great satire of science fiction TV shows like Star Trek, and would fit well on the small screen. It’s even easy to see how a film sequel could play out. But, it looks like neither of those things are happening, as Comic Book Resources reports that a Galaxy Quest sequel will move forward as a comic book instead.

Idw Publishing will put out the book, written by Ghostbusters and Shooting Star comics writer Erik Burnham and art from Nacno Arranz.

Despite the subtitle on the cover, the series will just be called “Galaxy Quest” and tie into the narrative of the film, »

‘Galaxy Quest’ Sequel Officially Happening…As a Comic Book

20 August 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Mention a Galaxy Quest sequel and the Internet sets on fire. Earlier this month, a few quotes from the cast of the cult 1999 comedy got people very excited for a possible follow-up to the film. Alas, there’s no actual movement on a film sequel. There is, however, a Galaxy Quest sequel coming to your […]

We're getting a Galaxy Quest sequel in the form of a comic book

20 August 2014 2:05 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

A few weeks ago we shared some news regarding a sequel to the 1999 cult favorite Galaxy Quest which basically told us the cast of the movie is game for a sequel. I think a lot of us are ready for one but sadly today’s news is not announcing such a revelation. Instead, a Galaxy Quest sequel is coming in the form of a comic book. Idw Publishing already released a Galaxy Quest sequel comic book called “Galaxy Quest: Global Warning” in 2008, but that was a »

Cast And Crew Are All Down For A Galaxy Quest Sequel

8 August 2014 1:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Amidst the Star Trek reboots, Star Wars sequels, and space-set Marvel movies, I think the one question on everyone’s mind is: where is the Galaxy Quest sequel? I know that I’ve been thinking that, and for once I’m not being facetious. A Galaxy Quest sequel is an awesome idea.

The hold-up on a sequel certainly does not have anything to do with the cast and crew not wanting to participate in another film. In celebration of the (almost) 15th anniversary of Galaxy Quest, MTV talked with the cast and crew of the Star Trek spoof with a twist. The crux of it all? Pretty much everyone is into the idea of another Galaxy Quest film. Tim Allen even said that he thought that there’s a script for the sequel running around somewhere, but he can’t get a straight answer about it.

So why no plans »

Galaxy Quest Sequel Wanted by Everyone Involved

8 August 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Director Dean Parisot's 1999 sci-fi comedy Galaxy Quest was a hell of a film. I love that movie, and over the years we've heard some talk of a sequel but nothing has ever materialized from that talk. The talking continues, but it's from all of the main players involved, and they all want to see a sequel happen.

MTV recently did an oral history of the film, and several members of the cast and crew came in to talk about the film. Those people included Tim Allen, Sigourney Allen, Sam Rockwell, Justin Long, director Dean Parisot, producer Mark Johnson, and writer Robert Gordon

You've got to remember that this movie was ahead of its time, and it was made in an era where geek culture wasn't as popular as it is now. At that time San Diego Comic-Con wasn't the huge popular convention that it is now. I think a sequel would do extremely now, »

Galaxy Quest Cast and Crew Reminisce About the Film and Express the Desire to Make a Sequel

8 August 2014 10:35 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Confession.  I haven’t seen Galaxy Quest.  I mean, I’m sure I’ve technically seen the whole thing in bits and pieces on cable (and my best friend’s dad in high school was a huge Star Trek nerd so he had the laserdisc of this on repeat at their house),  but I’ve never actually sat down to watch the entire thing.  I think this has a lot to do with the fact that it came out in 1999, a year in which I was an insufferable faux snob, only deigning to watch stuff like Magnolia, Fight Club and Being John Malkovich.  I just didn’t have the time for a goofy movie with Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman and Sam Rockwell.  Turns out I was likely wrong, and I continue to pay the price. Time has been kind to Galaxy Quest in terms of cultural response, and »

Everyone Involved With ‘Galaxy Quest’ Wants a Sequel

8 August 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

1999 was an amazing year of movies. One of the best ever. Being John Malkovich, The Matrix, Fight Club, Magnolia, Eyes Wide Shut, American Beauty, the list goes on and on. A film that also belongs on that list, but is rarely mentioned in the same space, is Galaxy Quest. The smart, hilarious send-up of […]

The cast and crew of Galaxy Quest are ready for a sequel

8 August 2014 4:42 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Galaxy Quest has truly become a cult classic among Sci-Fi enthusiasts. While it did "okay" at the box office ($71 million on a $45 million budget), the movie has garnered a following over the years, and that's because the filmmakers were aware of the absurdities that people go along with when it comes to Science-Fiction. Star Trek and Star Wars are inherently cheesy, but we love it for that. Rather than bashing or mimicking it, Galaxy Quest knew to how to have fun with it. It is a »

Film Face-off: 'The Avengers' vs. 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

4 August 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Don't move. Do you feel that? There it is again. The (Marvel) universe is expanding. Who needs Earth when we've got an entire galaxy that needs guarding? This weekend Guardians of the Galaxy hit theaters, and it's a superhero movie because Marvel says so. To most it will look like a science fiction space opera borrowing from Star Wars, Galaxy Quest and of course the comics it is based on. Here's the thing, if you look closely, you'll notice a similar pattern of a group of individuals disliking each other, but eventually realizing they need each other to accomplish a similar goal. That's right, we've been here before. In 2012 we were treated to Marvel's The Avengers. Can you compare the films? Of course, and that's exactly what we're...

The Important News Last weekend at Comic-Con, we got first wind of the following announcements: The King of the Monsters will be joined by three fan favorite creatures in Godzilla 2. If that's not enough giant beasts, Universal is also making a King Kong prequel set on and titled Skull Island. The main cast of Ant-Man and their characters -- including Evangeline Lilly as the Wasp -- were revealed during the Marvel Studios panel. Oscar winner Chris Terrio (Argo), who is scripting Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, will continue his work for the DC movies with Justice League.   Edward Scissorhands is getting a sequel in comic book form. So is Django Unchained, and he teams up with Zorro. So is Galaxy Quest, and there might be a movie sequel, too. Also...

'Galaxy Quest' Comic Revealed, Sequel Film a Possibility

1 August 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Fans of Galaxy Quest have clamored for a sequel to the hilariously funny Star Trek spoof for years, and now they’re finally getting their wish – just not in the way they probably imagined. Idw Comics is bringing the team to the printed page in the upcoming comic series Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues. Tim Allen’s Captain Nesmith and Sigourney Weaver’s Gwen DeMarco will live again thanks to writer Erik Burnham and artist Nacno Arranz, who’ve revealed plans for how the story will continue in the wake of the film. There is a spoiler for the film in there if you haven't managed to see it already. “Well, at the end of their movie, Tim Allen's character, Jason, used the Omega 13 device to rewind time 13 seconds and undo the catastrophic...

Galaxy Quest 2 May Actually Happen, Here's Why

31 July 2014 1:14 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Star Trek had a rousing revival thanks to J.J. Abrams' reboot back in 2009, so why not a resurrection of its quirky but beloved parody, Galaxy Quest? It turns out a sequel script may exist. Over at MTV, Jordan Hoffman did a comprehensive oral history of the creation, release and legacy of Galaxy Quest, the sci-fi comedy released back in 1999 that has since garnered a large cult following. The piece is a long read, but a totally worthwhile one. And if you can recite Alan Rickman's vengeance vow, then it's an absolute must-read. But for now, we'd like to focus on the very end of this extraordinary piece, and the enticing possibility of Galaxy Quest 2. Galaxy Quest was an oddity when it was first made and released, as it was barely interfered with by the studio, but not well understood by them either. This led to a marketing/release »

Tim Allen confirms a Galaxy Quest sequel was written

30 July 2014 11:10 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Can we get a Galaxy Quest 2? Probably not. But there's a script written, and the cast are keen...

It's now 15 years since the release of the quite wonderful Galaxy Quest, the film that brought together Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Sam Rockwell and Justin Long. Voted at one stage one of the best Star Trek movies by Star Trek fans, Galaxy Quest continues to enjoy a deserved following. And MTV has put together a really interesting look back at the film, bringing together the people involved.

There are one or two interesting nuggets to be found in it too. We didn't know that Harold Ramis was originally set to direct the film for instance, with Alec Baldwin his preferred lead (Kevin Kline and Steve Martin were also approached). Ramis would duck out in the end, and admit that he called it incorrectly. Dean Parisot came in to direct.

See Mythbuster Adam Savage's Ridiculously Elaborate 'Hellboy' Obsession

25 July 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Mythbusters host Adam Savage is a notorious movie fan. Not only do they regularly pick apart the reality of great movie moments on the show, but Savage - a former effects designer who did work on movies like Galaxy Quest and the Star Wars prequels - also spends his downtime building replicas of some of his favorite movie props (like Deckard's gun from Blade Runner).  Savage is also a regular Comic-Con attendee, and for this year's event he has seemingly outdone himself with an absurdly detailed replica of the Mecha-Glove from Hellboy. First, you're probably saying, "I don't even know what the Mecha-Glove from Hellboy is," and that's a totally fair point because the device isn't as iconic as, say, the red demon baby it summons. It's the...
