20 years ago today: Disney’s own outcast, ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame,’ premiered

21 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Has it really been 20 years since Hunchback of Notre Dame hit theaters? Oui, c'est vrai!  The 34th animated feature from the House of Mouse, Hunchback has a place among the Disney Renaissance movies of the 1990s, though it tends to be less remembered and celebrated than the likes of The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, and Mulan. Adapted from Victor Hugo’s 1831 novel, it’s darker than many Disney pics, and the only animated movie from the studio that’s had a major focus on themes of religion and faith. Though the filmmakers “were told to not make the movie too religious — a pretty daunting task when you consider how much of this story takes place inside of a big church,” animator Floyd Norman said. Hunchback of Notre Dame also had an outcast hero that didn’t look like dashing princes of Disney films past.

Uncle Buck and 80s movie remakes: a trend that needs a pause button

14 June 2016 3:37 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Uncle Buck, Adventures in Babysitting and Lethal Weapon reboots are part of phenomenon at the intersection of nostalgia and the availability of old films

Many of us haven’t thought of Uncle Buck, John Candy’s haphazard caretaker who flipped giant pancakes with a shovel and told the school principal to have a rat gnaw the mole off her face, since that movie was at the multiplex in 1989. However, on Tuesday the same character returns to television 27 years later in the sitcom Uncle Buck. It’s as if the Terminator’s 1984 catchphrase “I’ll be back,” applies to all sorts of movie properties right now, with a whole batch of them making their way to television. Why the heck are 80s movie properties like totally awesome right now?

It’s not just Uncle Buck that we’re going to have to contend with on the dial. Adventures in Babysitting, released in 1987, is getting a TV adaptation this summer. Lethal Weapon, which came out the same year (man, ’87 was a good year for movies), is going to be on television this fall. This is just the tail end of the trend of older movies finally coming to the small screen. Last year 1981’s The Evil Dead returned from the grave as Ash vs Evil Dead and 1976’s The Omen became Damien. Fargo, Minority Report and Rush Hour were all turned into series more than a decade after their film premieres.

'Logan's Run' Remake Gets a Writer

1 June 2016 11:24 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Warner Bros. has been hard at work on a Logan's Run remake for decades (literally). Now, it sounds like the production may finally get back on track. According to Deadline, the studio has tapped Colony creator/showrunner Ryan Condal to write a new script based on the treatment written by X-men: Apocalypse co-writer/producer Simon Kinberg. Kinberg will also be producing the project alongside Joel Silver and DC's Arrow-verse overlord Greg Berlanti

Logan's Run will be a new take on the 1967 novel (written by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson), which was last adapted to the big screen in the 1976 Michale York film of the same name. As it's a new take on the actual source material, don't expect it to have a whole lot in common with the 1970s counterpart.

For those unfamiliar, Logan's Run takes place in a dystopian society where its citizens are executed when they turn 21. However, »

Anthony Mackie wants in on Bryan Cranston’s Philip K. Dick TV series

26 May 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Bryan Cranston is making an anthology show based on the works of sci-fi icon Philip K. Dick. We may have just found his first co-star for the series. While chatting with Anthony Mackie about All the Way (in which Mackie plays Martin Luther King, Jr. opposite Cranston’s Lbj), I mentioned the recently announced anthology series since Mackie has some Philip K. Dick on his resume with 2011 movie The Adjustment Bureau. Mackie seems to have a genuine enthusiasm for the writer whose stories have led to tons of screen adaptations, Blade Runner, Total Recall, Minority Report, and The Man in the High Castle among them. “Adjustment Bureau reigns as one of my favorite movies I’ve done,” Mackie told me. “Philip K. Dick’s short stories are just amazing and from another time of writing. You used to sit and read those stories, and they would take you to a whole other world. »

Training Day Makes The Jump To T.V.

19 May 2016 3:28 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

A big trend for t.v. recently has been small screen reboots of popular movies, with the likes of Hannibal, Limitless, Bates Motel, From Dusk Till Dawn, and Minority Report all playing to varying degrees of success. The upcoming 2016/2017 season doesn’t see that trend ending any time soon. We’ve already seen the trailer for the suspect Lethal Weapon series, and The Exorcist and Frequency are also coming our way. We all know how these will probably turn out, but there’s one show that could prove to be the diamond in the rough, and that is Training Day. Yes, the same Training Day that gave us one of Denzel Washington’s greatest performances is coming to t.v., with Bill Paxton stepping into his shoes as the morally compromised detective Frank Rourke. Yes, Bill Paxton. Now that I have your attention, check out the trailer below. Paxton has »

‘Civil War II’ #0 is ‘Minority Report’ with superheroes

Civil War II #0

Written by Brian Michael Bendis

Art by Olivier Coipel

Colors by Justin Ponsor

Letters by Clayton Cowles

Published by Marvel Comics

Even though titling a comic Civil War II just after Captain America: Civil War was released seems like a shameless cash grab, writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Olivier Coipel use this zero issue to set up the theme and conflict of the series, which straight from Philip K. Dick’s Minority Report. The question is, if given the chance, should we prevent crimes before they happen? Of course, there aren’t any answers so far, but Bendis plays to his strengths and focuses on individual characters’ ideas about the question, including Captain Marvel, who will be going up against Iron Man in the main series. Olivier Coipel’s clean, yet cartoonish style is a great fit for superheroes wrestling with their inner demons, and he »

Watch: 10 Exciting New Series From Fox

17 May 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

It’s that time of year again! Television networks are bidding farewell to certain series and welcoming new ones into the fold. Among them is Fox, which will not be giving “Bordertown,” “Grandfathered,” “The Grinder,” “Minority Report,” and “Second Chance,” well, a second chance. However, a crop of promising series have been announced, and with them several newly released promotional trailers.  In addition to the shows listed below, Fox will air a highly anticipated remake of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” starring Laverne Cox come Halloween, as well as a new installment of “Prison Break,” which ran on the network 2005–2009. Check out Fox’s new series offerings for the 2016–17 television season! “24: Legacy”A reboot rather than a sequel, “24: Legacy” reinvents the original real-time drama “24” in part by getting rid of Jack Bauer.

CBS Quietly Cancels Rush Hour After One Season

16 May 2016 1:58 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Freshman drama Rush Hour won’t be returning to CBS for a sophomore run, after the network confirmed plans to quietly cancel the action spinoff after its inaugural season.

Initially pitched as a reimagining of the feature film series of the same name – which began life in 1997, starring Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan – CBS’ small-screen rendition of Rush Hour struggled to garner any sense of momentum since it first debuted earlier in 2016. It’ll continue airing until the end of the season, where Justin Hires and Jon Foo play the parts of Detective James Carter and Chief Inspector Lee, respectively.

Alas, middling reviews and low ratings effectively sealed the network’s decision, and it’s understood CBS had been shopping around the series in an attempt to find a home prior to today’s cancellation. It appears that Rush Hour‘s fate has been sealed though and, after just a brief spell on TV, »

9 terrific British sci-fi novels of the 1960s

16 May 2016 8:55 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

facebook

twitter

google+

Here are 9 of the best 60s British sci-fi novels, featuring thrillers, alternative histories, apocalyptic tales and more...

Read our celebration of 8 amazing British sci-fi novels, here.

Arthur C Clarke once wrote: "Two possibilities exist: either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying."

British science fiction of the 1960s gave readers both versions of that terror in novels set on Earth or in far away universes. For those writing about Earth, our own humanity was up for questioning like never before; are we on the path to our own destruction, or do we hold the key to our own salvation? For the novelists who threw all earthly troubles away and created entire universes in mind-boggling detail, they were still reflecting on the problems everyone faced back home: a generation who wanted freedom like never before, faith being shaken in the government, and big shifts in societal attitudes all contributed to an era where many talented writers felt they could best comment through the genre of science fiction.

Here's a look at ten novels that give a flavour of what an varied time it was in science fiction writing, with some authors remaining in the 'pulp' feel of earlier times to create fresh space adventures, and others beginning to experiment with form and literary devices to take Sf in an unexpected, and highly influential, direction...

The Drowned World - Jg Ballard (1962)

Ballard brought something very different to science fiction with his style of detached, literary writing which is cold and intelligent and uncomfortable. You may not like his characters but his visions of the future draw you in and stay in your mind. They feel as if they have a truth about them.

The Drowned World is the story of Dr Robert Kerans, a biologist who has been sent to work in the submerged remains of what was once a great city. But water has covered most of the world due to climate change, and although the tower blocks still rise above the lagoons this is a place that belongs to the insects, the lizards, and no longer to humanity. A strange lethargy, born of the heat, infects Kerans and his co-workers, giving them troubling dreams. It infuses the book, too, and makes this a vivid, sensual and disturbing novel.

Transit - Edmund Cooper (1964)

Our hero Richard Avery finds a glowing crystal in a park, and upon touching it is whisked away to some unknown location where he finds himself becoming the subject of experimentation. Placed upon a desert island with two women and one other man, he has to find a way to survive whatever nature, and his captors, throw at him. Thank goodness they are provided with cigarettes, booze and pornography, or else the whole thing would be unbearable.

Out of all the books on this list, this one feels most like a product of its time to me. It's like Kurt Vonnegut wrote an episode of The Prisoner - a page-turning survival story that's part wish-fulfilment, part social experiment, and it entertains brilliantly, never flagging, and never demanding that we take it too seriously.

A Wrinkle In The Skin - John Christopher (1962)

The title of the novel comes from a moment early on when chat at a dinner party turns to the subject of recent earthquakes - "One or two wrinkles in the skin of an orange - the orange very big and the wrinkles very small," says one character, dismissively, while enjoying the benefits of civilised society. But it turns out that the wrinkles aren't so small after all.

John Christopher was great at turning mundane moments into chilling ones, and there is a brilliant description of the stillness that pervades before the big earthquake hits. But afterwards Guernsey - the home of horticulturalist Matthew Cotter - is no longer a safe haven of polite people and fine dining. The survivors become desperate, and the story turns into a journey through an unrecognisable landscape that juxtaposes so sharply with that first chapter. It's a bleak read, and a worrying one; would civilization so easily collapse at the first sign of a mere wrinkle?

The Doomsday Men - Kenneth Bulmer (1968)

 

Carver is a Ridforce agent; he has been trained, using new technology, to enter the mind of murder victims and replay their last memories to the moment of death, revealing the killer. He runs the risk of losing his own thoughts and memories with each case, but Carver is good at his job, and the department trusts in his ability to find the truth. Until he enters the mind of a victim and finds a troubling memory - why is Carver's own teenage daughter, ensconced miles away in an expensive boarding school, present as a high-class prostitute in the victim's memories?

A police procedural sci-fi thriller, The Doomsday Men reminds me of Mad Men tied with Minority Report. Slick, full of manly attitude, and yet dealing with crimes within the mind in which nothing the protagonist sees can be trusted, it's a slippery fish of a read that ties itself into too neat a bow in the end, perhaps. Still, it's a heck of an adventure, involving a lot of corpses, double bluffs, and even a ticking bomb.

Pavane - Keith Roberts (1968)

Alternative history books are hard to do well, and almost impossible to do with as much delicacy and complexity as Pavane. It starts with one question - what if Elizabeth I had died earlier and the Catholic Church had reasserted its hold on England?

Jump forward a few hundred years and we have a country without electricity, without equal rights, and with a reliance on the steam train that dominates the first section of the novel and makes this feel, initially, like steampunk. But Pavane doesn't stay within one element of this alternative future; it gives us a number of wonderful characters throughout society and interweaves their stories to make an intricate pattern. Cause and effect is a complex business which doesn't always get a lot of consideration in science fiction. I can't think of a book that does it as well as Pavane.

Chocky - John Wyndham (1960)

In 2008 Dreamworks acquired the film rights to Chocky and it's not hard to see why it would appeal; the tale of a boy who has an imaginary friend that perhaps isn't imaginary after all, this is science fiction at its most personal and inclusive, filled with warmth for the situation and the family it describes.

If you're in the mood for a more optimistic read, then either Chocky or The Trouble With Lichen (the only two novels Wyndham wrote in the 1960s) will fit the bill perfectly. They have humour and decency, but they still manage to raise troubling questions about how humans often assume a mastery over the world, and why we struggle to overcome our own preconceptions.

Greybeard - Brian Aldiss (1964)

The worlds of future fictions often belong to the young and Greybeard is a very effective counterpoint - imagining a time when humanity ceases to reproduce after a spike in radiation, and there will be no more children to inherit the Earth. Instead there's only Greybeard and others like him, elderly men and women in a society reverting to feudalism and superstition as they die out.

The non-linear story documents Greybeard's life, revealing factions and forces that created this last generation. It's a reading experience of far more light, humour and beauty than this subject matter would suggest. It also reaches some really interesting conclusions about humanity. A world without children is not a new theme; a number of books tackle the same ground, but Greybeard is, I think, the most surprising and insightful of the lot.

The Hieros Gamos Of Sam And An Smith - Josephine Saxton (1969)

A boy walks through a strange land, perhaps a post-apocalyptic one, and yet it holds no threat for him. There are no wild animals, no radiation, and when he hears a baby crying in the wilderness he has no fear of approaching. The mother is dead, moments after giving birth, and the boy takes the baby girl, and begins to provide for her with no great sense of importance. The book follows the boy as he raises the girl, and we find ourselves examining the nature of life, of sex, of childhood and parenthood, afresh.

A short and marvellous book, I really can't think of anything else quite like it. It proves that science fiction is a brilliant genre for examining deep psychological issues precisely because it can be free from the demands of realism. Also, the ending is my favourite of all the books on this list.

A Fall Of Moondust - Arthur C Clarke (1961)

Hms Selene cruises the Sea of Thirst, a vast bowl of powdery dust on the moon. The trip offers a thrill to those who are tired of exploring Earth and can afford the ticket price, but these travellers get more than they bargained for when the Selene is stranded deep within the dust. Can rescuers reach them?

A race against time, it would have been easy to make A Fall Of Moondust into a claustrophobic, if predictable, tale of human interplay between the trapped tourists. But what I love is that Clarke doesn't do that. The poor victims play cards and form book clubs and provide the light relief at times, because this is a very serious exploration of how space tourism might look and what technological problems might await us on the moon. Published eight years before man set foot on a lunar landscape and found it wouldn't swallow us up in dust, this book is a good reminder of how visionary science fiction could be when dealing with unknowns, and of how far our understanding has come since then.

Colin Farrell: Why I Made 'The Lobster'

"So tell me," Colin Farrell asks. "What's it about?"

When The Lobster premiered in Cannes in 2015, the 39-year-old Irish actor was forthright about not understanding what, exactly, was going on in Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos' sci-fi fable, set in a world where single adults who fail to find a suitable romantic partner within 40 days, or risk being turned into animals. A year later, as it opens in New York and Los Angeles today (and goes into wide release on May 27th), he's still not sure — but he has a few ideas. »
