Falling Skies season 5 episode 1 review: Find Your Warrior

29 June 2015 4:53 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Falling Skies commences its ten-episode final season with an entertaining uptick in violence...

This review contains spoilers.

5.1 Find Your Warrior

In season four of Falling Skies, Battlestar Galactica veteran David Eick took over as showrunner and producer, and the show shifted subtly from a Revolutionary War parallel to a more traditional war story. Now, with the final season locked in for ten episodes, Eick is promsing even more chaos and carnage, transitioning from the Revolution to Vietnam. He's even gone as far as to call the last season of Falling Skies 'Apocalypse Now on crystal meth'. The family drama is getting put by the wayside for some good, old-fashioned alien murder, or so we're promised.

That remains to be seen, but after watching the first episode of the season, I can say that there is a very high body count and for once, Falling Skies doesn't trade bloodshed for speeches—you get both, »

‘Falling Skies’: Noah Wyle gets high praise from co-star Moon Bloodgood

28 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It’s the beginning of the end for “Falling Skies” tonight. The TNT series, produced by Steven Spielberg, airs the finale of its fifth and final season, when all manner of beasts and mutants are running rampant on Earth. Season 5 picks up right where season 4 left off (a first for a “Falling Skies” premiere — find out why in HitFix’s Q&A with the series' showrunner). Dr. Anne Glass, played by Moon Bloodgood, is dealing with the likely loss of her alien hybrid child and her husband (“ER” alum Noah Wyle) when the two of them haven’t returned from their crucial mission to the moon. Here Bloodgood tells HitFix how Anne steps up as a leader in the fight for humanity’s survival against the invading aliens. The actress also talks about which character gets an intense showdown with Anne, how becoming a mother has changed her as an actress, »

‘Falling Skies’: Season 5 is ‘‘Apocalypse Now’ on crystal meth,’ says showrunner

28 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Falling Skies” began as a loose allegory for the American Revolutionary War when the alien invasion TV show first aired in 2011. Humans are fighting on their own turf for independence from extraterrestrials. That analogy evolved, as the finale of season 2 gave viewers their first look at the Volm, a species of alien who act rather like the French do for the Patriots, coming to the aid of the Earthlings. Say good morning, Vietnam, season 5. Showrunner David Eick describes the final season as “‘‘Apocalypse Now’ on crystal meth.” It’s a season of more moral ambiguity. It’s a season when characters push themselves to their absolute limits. The entire series has blended elements of sci-fi, war show, horror and family drama, but for season 5 there will be more focus on “war tales” and “combat stories,” said Eick, the “Battlestar Galactica” alum who came aboard “Falling Skies” as showrunner for season »

‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ ‘The Walking Dead,’ ‘Interstellar’ Shine at Saturn Awards

26 June 2015 12:09 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Interstellar” drew the most wins at the 41st annual Saturn Awards, taking six awards including top science fiction film. But “Guardians of the Galaxy” also had a big night, picking up awards for top comicbook film, best director and best actor for Chris Pratt.

Jonathan Nolan accepted the screenwriting honor for “Interstellar.” He quipped: ” ‘Interstellar’ is the story of a man who goes on an arduous journey, comes back 100 years later to find that nobody remembers him or gives a f–k about what he was doing. It’s a pretty good metaphor for writing a studio film.”

“Guardians” director James Gunn accepted for Pratt, then was recalled to the podium twice more in quick succession to accept his own kudos and the top honor for the film. Gunn eschewed the “cocktail attire” dress code for a black sweatshirt emblazoned with a kitten. Gunn read a message from Pratt: “James Gunn is the future. »

Superman Gets Mean in First Clip for Justice League: Gods and Monsters

25 June 2015 12:20 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The DC Universe's next animated film, Justice League: Gods and Monsters is hitting blu-ray next month, but before it hits, you can check out the first clip from the film, showing how the alternate reality team handles the world...

I'm very excited to see what Justice League: Gods and Monsters has to offer.  It's a very different take on the heroes we all know and love, and DC's animated films are almost always impressive and fun to watch.  So this little adventure should be interesting indeed, especially based on this first clip: 

Animation legend Bruce Timm returns to the popular DC Universe Original Movies with his unique new vision of a Justice League you’ve never seen before. "Justice League: Gods & Monsters" features a Superman born of General Zod’s blood, a Batman with a healthy dose of bat in the man, and a Wonder Woman rising from the ranks of the New Gods. »

Killjoys Season 1 Review

17 June 2015 3:06 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One episode was provided for review prior to broadcast.

Science-fiction is a genre that has always been unusually receptive to bare-minimum, surface-level programming. Particularly in the early 2000s, it seemed that all one needed to successfully launch a new series was a flashy setting (either over-complicated or under-explored), a photogenic cast and some procedural hook, usually one past its expiration date by the end of the first season.

Lately, though, audiences have demanded more. This millennium’s most well-regarded sci-fi programs, like Firefly and Battlestar Galactica, are so universally praised because they went above and beyond what was required of them, proving undaunted by ambitious, tricky narratives. And viewers are currently gifted with some terrific series (e.g. Orphan BlackBlack Mirror) that have followed in their footsteps, tackling heady questions of human ethics head-on.

Despite following a trio of bounty hunters operating in the wild west of deep space (let that breath out, »

‘Game of Thrones’ Still Too Medieval for Emmys?

16 June 2015 10:10 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As fans still absorb the various body blows delivered by Sunday’s season finale, some are no doubt wondering whether “Game of Thrones” – a four-time Emmy best-drama nominee – can break its drought in terms of actually winning? If history is any guide, it’s an uphill battle.

The imposing wall the HBO drama has to scale can be traced to a variety of factors and historical precedents. The most obvious – one that’s griped about with annual reliability – is a perceived bias against so-called genre shows, those set in the worlds of science fiction, fantasy or (in the case of “The Walking Dead”) horror. Throughout its history, the Emmys have nominated relatively few programs representing that area, and honored one: ABC’s “Lost” a decade ago.

What has changed, in recent years, is the inordinate popularity of certain programs from those genres, reflecting their mass appeal – and not incidentally, their »

Forest Whitaker in Talks for Star Wars: Rogue One

15 June 2015 11:53 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Forest Whitaker is in negotiations to join the first of the Star Wars anthology films, Rogue One, Variety reports. The film, slated for December 16, 2016, shouldn't be confused with Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens. (Think of it like the "Razor" episode of Battlestar Galactica.) Whitaker would join Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, and Ben Mendelsohn on the film helmed by Gareth Edwards, who has said that the plot revolves around Jones as a rebel soldier trying to steal the plans to the Death Star. Logically, this would mean the one-off takes place somewhere between episodes III and IV in the Star Wars timeline. It's not clear what Whitaker's role would be or what his character would be named, but if you think about it, "Forest Whitaker" could work. »

36 major blockbusters and why they never got made

11 June 2015 6:53 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We look at the films that slipped through Hollywood's net, from biblical epics to a time travelling Gladiator sequel...

This article contains a spoiler for Gladiator

If you're one of those frustrated over the quality of many of the blockbusters that make it to the inside of a multiplex, then ponder the following. For each of these were supposed to be major projects, that for one reason or another, stalled on their way to the big screen. Some still may make it. But for many others, the journey is over. Here are the big blockbusters that never were...

1. Airframe

The late Michael Crichton scored another residential on the bestseller list with his impressive thriller, Airframe. It was published in 1996, just after films of Crichton works such as Jurassic Park, Rising Sun, Disclosure and the immortal Congo had proven to be hits of various sizes.

So: a hit book, another techno thriller, »

25 Years In La Part 2: 'Shawshank,' 'Sleepwalkers,' and 'Sticks and Stones'

9 June 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Yesterday, I wrote about my first year in Los Angeles, which was all just a matter of settling in. Remember, when I moved to La, I knew a grand total of zero people who lived or worked here. I was not laden with contacts and strolling into a situation where everything was guaranteed to work out. Scott Swan and I took a huge chance when we packed up and moved out, and I am so horrified by how little money we had saved that I'm almost embarrassed to say the number. I was insanely naive when I arrived in town. I am still haunted by a choice we made in those early days, when we answered an ad in one of the trades that was looking for writers willing to work on a "per sketch" basis. I forget how much the rate was… $100 or so, but definitely not more than that… »

Dark Matter Season 1 Review

9 June 2015 2:49 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One episode was provided for reviewing purposes prior to broadcast.

It took me approximately five minutes to estimate the kind of Syfy series that Dark Matter would be. None would call the network’s track record unblemished, exactly, so deciding to give a new Syfy show a chance is sometimes a crap shoot. You could win big (last year’s Ascension sure came close), or you could lose even bigger. Dark Matter, the network’s new series based on the Dark Horse comic of the same name, fits rightfully on brand with Syfy’s pivot away from quirky ephemerality (Eureka, Warehouse 13) and into the grittier deep space shenanigans of yesteryear – or, you know, when Battlestar Galactica made them a lot of money.

But now, thanks to Dark Matter‘s dramatically preposterous mishandling of both its “adult” themes and that elusive grittiness, Syfy is even further away from the quality »

Bamber, Lutz, Williams, Weixler Set For ‘Money’ (Exclusive)

9 June 2015 2:37 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid – Jamie Bamber, Kellan Lutz, Jesse Williams and Jess Weixler are set to star in indie thriller “Money,” from “An Act of War” and “A Conspiracy on Jekyll Island” producer Atit Shah at Create Entertainment.

Initiating principal photography from June 9 in Woodbury, Long Island, “Money” marks the feature debut of one of Spain’s most talked-about shorts/commercials directors, Martin Rosete, who leapt to attention with the 2012 Tribeca Fest-selected sci fi drama “Voice Over,” which won over 100 prizes.

From a screenplay by Barcelona’s Josep Ciutat, “Money” turns on two affluent couples held hostage by a charismatic con artist who poses as their neighbor. Ensnared in a web of lies and embezzlement, their loyalties are severed and love destroyed for two suitcases full of cash.

Rosete’s brother Jose Rosete, who has collaborated with him throughout his career, will serve as “Money’s” cinematographer.
