Dallas Comic Con's Fan Days 2014 wasn’t as hectic an event as May’s monstrous blow-out, but it still provided plenty of fun for attendees. Held back at the familiar Irving Convention Center, it was better organized than in the past and only had some minor issues.
The biggest draws of the week came from the media guests. After folks got over the disappointment of several canceled appearances, there still found plenty to do. A mini-Goonies reunion occurred with Corey Feldman and Ke Huy Quan sitting mere feet from each other. Sean Astin was in attendance as well, completing not only that partial reunion, but a Lord of the Rings one with fellow guest Elijah Wood.

If anyone has noticed a different attitude from Syfy over the past year, it's probably Bill McGoldrick they would have to thank. McGoldrick, who took over the original content duties from Mark Stern last year, knows that the face of television has changed with the likes of "Game of Thrones" on HBO, "Breaking Bad" on AMC and "Fargo" on FX. And because television is changing and evolving, so is Syfy. "This year and next year is going to be Syfy at its finest," cable channel President Dave Howe told reporters at Monday's Syfy Digital Press Tour in Orlando. "We have big, bold ambitious scripted series at the level of 'Battlestar Galactica' and the miniseries events, and the plethora of announcements that have been going on the last six months thanks to Bill and his team has been incredible."

Before I Go to Sleep casts Kidman as a 40-year-old woman who wakes up every day with a blank memory. Firth is her husband who tells her they.ve been married for 14 years and Mark Strong is her neuro-psychologist who encourages her to keep a daily video diary so she can help rebuild her life.

Nationwide takings dropped by 16% to $9.7 million as none of the other newcomers much enthused cinemagoers, according to Rentrak.s weekend estimates. Distributors say the market is soft and especially shallow below the top three titles. »
