10 Things You Didn’t Know About Summer Glau

16 April 2015 12:02 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros. Television

You’re unlikely to come across a more fervent fandom than the surprisingly active Browncoats. The fans of Joss Whedon’s prematurely cancelled sci-fi Western series Firefly – and its brilliant-but-tragic cinematic sequel – are still tirelessly campaigning for its return, in the meantime making do with comic books and other spin-offs that continue the story. As they wait for a proper resurrection, their adoration goes elsewhere.

Mainly wherever the stars of Firefly go, with star Nathan Fillion’s current crime series Castle probably kept on air solely from devoted Browncoats, Whedon’s significant fanbase continuing to grow outside of his Buffy work thanks to those Avengers film, but the one actor who’s managed to continue a career of cult sci-fi work?

That honour goes to Summer Glau, who broke through in Firefly and Serenity as the mysterious, mostly mute River Tam. Kidnapped and experimented upon by the baddies, »

‘Wonder Woman’ finds a replacement in ex-‘Thor 2′ director

15 April 2015 5:17 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Well, that didn’t take long.

Two days after Game of Thrones veteran Michelle MacLaren left Wonder Woman, DC has found her replacement in another displaced former superhero director. The Hollywood Reporter reported on Wednesday that Patty Jenkins, known for Monster, is set to takeover the film.

Jenkins has history with superhero tentpole films as she was originally supposed to helm Thor 2 for Marvel before moving on from the project and being replaced by Alan Taylor. It was reported on Monday that MacLaren left Wonder Woman over creative differences.

With her most well-known project being Monster with Charlize Theron, Jenkins does not have any other feature film credits with most of her work being in television with Arrested Development, Entourage, and The Killing. That hasn’t been a huge hurdle though for recent directors in superhero movies with Anthony and Joe Russo making the jump from TV to movies with »

Character Actor Tom Towles Dies at 65

5 April 2015 2:26 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Even if you don’t recognize the name Tom Towles — and few outside the alcoves of esoteric horror will — you may recognize his face if you watched any television in the ’90s: broad brow, ears jutting out just slightly too far, perpetually furrowed eyes and a hooked nose hanging just above a big bushy mustache. Towles, who passed away today at the age of 65, had a singular look and a singular presence that appeared, with varying degrees of brevity, on SeinfeldNYPD BlueL.A. LawERStar Trek: Deep Space Nine and Voyager, and Firefly. But those initiated into the cult of indie horror know Towles as Otis from John McNaughton’s notorious, nefarious Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. Quickly shot on 16mm on an emaciated budget of $110,000 in 1985, the film didn’t soil screens until 1990, when it carved its way into horror history. Michael Rooker, then an unknown, »

Agents of Shield, Ep. 2.15, “One Door Closes”, Another Blows Wide Open

1 April 2015 2:23 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Agents of Shield, Season 2, Episode 15: “One Door Closes”

Written by Lauren LeFranc and Rafe Judkins

Directed by David Solomon

Airs Tuesdays at 9pm (Et) on ABC

The episode title “One Door Closes” is a play on the old saying, “When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.” Agents of Shield is focused almost exclusively on Agent-now-Director Coulson and his team, even more so after the fall of Shield. In “One Door Closes”, the writers of Agents of Shield ask the audience a lot of important questions. Are Coulson and his team in charge because they are the best people for the job, or does the audience want Coulson in charge because it is the only possibility they have been presented with? Is he only the director »

Ryan Reynolds' new Deadpool costume revealed

27 March 2015 11:53 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Leave it to Vancouver funnyman Ryan Reynolds to have the most ridiculous and charming superhero suit reveal.

This isn’t the first time Reynolds has played a superhero – he played Green Lantern, after all – but it’s also not the first time he’s played Deadpool, the "merc with a mouth." In X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Reynold’s Wade Wilson was more of a 2000s bro with some samurai swords.

For Deadpool’s standalone film, the filmmakers are pushing the cargo pants aside. There's a brand new look for Deadpool, and you can almost hear Reynolds's character whispering, “Draw me like one of your French girls.”

Deadpool also stars Haywire’s Gina Carano and Morena Baccarin of “Firefly,” Serenity, and probably other things that aren’t “Firefly” and Serenity, but those aren’t nearly as important because they're not “Firefly” and Serenity. The film is currently filming in Vancouver, and set »

Deadpool Gets A New Logo And Synopsis

27 March 2015 11:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

On top of this morning’s exciting (and eerily saucy) reveal of Ryan Reynolds in costume as Deadpool, 20th Century Fox has kickstarted what appears to be the beginning of the marketing campaign for the film, which includes the launch of the movie’s official Twitter account and website, along with the first logo and synopsis.

The logo itself is pretty straightforward, and what we’ve come to expect from a comic book adaptation. The synopsis is the real gem here, as it gives us the overall story for the film and confirms that the Merc with a Mouth will indeed have his trademark sense of dark humor when he finally gets the solo outing we’ve been waiting for:

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that »

First Full Look At Ryan Reynolds In Costume As Deadpool

27 March 2015 9:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Taking to his personal Twitter account earlier this morning, Ryan Reynolds lifted the curtain on the first official look at his Deadpool costume in typical fashion.

Posing in a way that would make Rose DeWitt Bukater proud, the photo sees Reynolds don the superhero guise for a rather intimate still. Here’s what the actor had to share.

With great power, comes great irresponsibility. #deadpool#officialsuit@deadpoolmoviepic.twitter.com/MPM89bYz1B

Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) March 27, 2015

For the film, Reynolds will play the part of Wade Wilson, Marvel’s idiosyncratic anti-hero that earns his title as the Merc with a Mouth for his quirky one-liners and devastating physical abilities. The project has flirted with development for some time, particularly after the actor’s cameo in the otherwise poor X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but it was the tidal wave of support that rose to the fore following the release of last year’s excellent test footage. »

Exclusive Interview: Alan Tudyk Talks ‘Con Man’ And ‘Firefly’

25 March 2015 6:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It is a well-known fact here at Thn that I’m somewhat a fan of Firefly. The sci-fi western starring Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk combined a great world, intriguing narrative and some utterly brilliant characters with a typically snappy Joss Whedon script. What’s not to love? Who knows, but Firefly was cancelled after a limited run in 2002, despite its Browncoat army of fans protests.

Since the show’s farewell movie Serenity, Joss Whedon has successfully assembled The Avengers on the silver screen already and is overseeing the upcoming sequel Avengers: Age Of Ultron, while it’s cast has been busy on films like I, Robot, Dodgeball and Wreck-it Ralph, not to mention starring in hit shows Castle, Suits and Homeland. Had everybody moved on and forgotten their love of Firefly and its cast? Of course not!

The TV Casts We ‘Adopt’

14 March 2015 6:52 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

This week, Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion teamed up to raise funds for an IndieGoGo campaign. The idea is Tudyk’s, and he wants to make a web series called “Con Man” about an actor from a “killed too soon” sci-fi TV show where he piloted a ship, and Nathan Fillion plays the actor who played the captain. Naturally, since these are Firefly actors and this is essentially a concept that marries Firefly itself with Galaxy Quest, it struck a chord with fans. Tudyk was asking for $425,000 to fund the first batch of episodes, and by the end of the day he’d tripled that with $1.2M in donations. This is, of course, no surprise. You only had to watch the intro video (which also co-starred Seth Green, Gina Torres, Felicia Day, and James Gunn, who are all involved with the project) to know that it would be funded. Why? »

‘Con Man’ celebrates web series funding record by releasing sneak peak

13 March 2015 6:58 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Never underestimate the collective power of Firefly fans. On Wednesday, we reported that Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion, two of the show’s former cast members, were launching an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for their new comedic web series Con Man. The duo hoped to raise $425,000 for the project, but donations from a rabid swarm of Firefly fans shot above $1.5 million within 48 hours. With 28 days of funding left to go, EW reports that the project has already become the highest-funded web series in history.

Tudyk and Fillion have enough coin to produce ten episodes of Con Man, which revolves around the humorously weird experiences of a former cult sci-fi series actor as he makes his way around the convention circuit. Tudyk stars as Wray Nealy, the brave conventioneer, while Fillion plays Wray’s friend and former co-star Jack Moore, who has since catapulted to major movie stardom.

To thank those who donated to the project, »

'Firefly' Stars Fillion & Tudyk Break Crowdfunding Record

13 March 2015 5:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

On Wednesday, a crowdfunding campaign was launched by Firefly stars Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk for their new web series entitled Con Man. The actors/producers set a goal of $425,000 to produce at least three episodes, and fans have responded in record-breaking ways. In just under two days, Con Man has received more than $1.6 million, which ensures that at least 11 episodes will be produced. The campaign passed the $1 million mark in less than 24 hours, and has set records for both the highest-funded web series within 24 hours, and the highest-funded web series of all time.

If the series reaches its ultimate goal of $1.75 million, two more episodes will be produced, bringing Season 1 to 13 episodes, one of which will be a complete episode of the sci-fi "show-within-a-show" entitled Spectrum. Con Man centers on Wray Nerely (Alan Tudyk), the pilot on the Spectrum sci-fi series that was beloved by fans but cancelled way before its time, »
