There will be lots of sci-fi at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con International.
“The Hangover” actress Sondra Currie will be on location to pitch a new sci-fi television series “Ganymede Pan” to fans and others attending the convention. Currie is best known as Alan’s mother in all three “Hangover” movies.
Currie spoke with in detail about the premise of the television and her plans for the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con International.
Read the interview below.
Latino-Review: Tell me more about this show “Ganymede Pan.” I’ve seen the trailer. What is this science-fiction television show you’re trying to promote?
Sondra Currie: It’s a situation in which the universe is in grave danger. I play General Tai. She is the nemesis on the show. There’s a psychotropic substance or we call it a “trope. »

Lana Del Rey has come a long way from her debut “Born to Die.” New “Ultraviolence” is legions more cohesive, conceptually stronger and packaged better than her scarlet starlets of 2011. The improvements are still in want. Del Rey is wearing, again, the troubled, beautiful and bored persona for this experiential album, which upfront demands a certain suspension of reality. From psyche-lilting opener “Cruel World” to dead-eyed cover “The Other Woman,” “Ultraviolence” doesn’t so much get exhausted as it exhausts you on this lethargic fantasy.

But with "Interstellar," Nolan has to do without Pfister for the first time since his debut, "Following," as his regular Dp has greater ambitions. Pfister's directorial debut "Transcendence" hits theaters on April 17. It's a highly ambitious, fascinating concept, but it remains to be seen whether Pfister has a shot at a long-term career as a director. In anticipation for that project, here are fifteen major cinematographers who tried their hand at directing, with varying results. [Just a quick note: this list doesn't include directors who serve as their own cinematographers, such as Steven Soderbergh or Robert Rodriguez.] Mario Bava Cinematography Background: Bava got his start working with none other than Italian »
