The Supergirl pilot episode leaked late last week, in full and in high quality - genuine error or a publicity stunt?
Some believed that the comic book adaptation hitting the web - 6 months before its intended November launch on CBS - was a simple (if rather large) mistake, while conspiracy theorists argued that the pilot had been intentionally leaked to counter negative buzz following a lukewarm reception to the first series trailer.
Whatever the truth, the leak is far from the first incident of its kind. Episodes of popular TV shows have been popping up online ahead of broadcast for a while now - sometimes it's a matter of days, but sometimes it's months...
Leaked 1 week early
How's this for irony? Viewers got a FlashForward of their own when the pilot episode of the ABC sci-fi series - then eyed as the next Lost - appeared on file-sharing sites »
Opening in select U.S. theaters on June 12, watch the trailer for Set Fire To The Stars.
The film premiered in 2014 at the Edinburgh International Film Festival and was released in the UK in November.
Shelagh Rowan-Legg (Twitchfilm.com) wrote the film, “is a tribute not only to a poet, but to poetry, and how cinema can find its own way to convey poetry, through its own lyricism,” and “the stand-out feature of the poetic extention is by far the incredible score by Gruff Rhys.”
Actor/co-writer Celyn Jones plays the volatile celebrity poet – tormented by anonymity, alcohol and the abyss – who scandalized the Manhattan literati of the Fifties and challenged Brinnin’s hero worship of his work. In the face of the Welsh poet’s wilder excesses in the Big Apple – angel, »

Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular review: A wonderful »
Although the story of River Song has had more onscreen endings than most sci-fi romances (it started with an ending, after all), Alex Kingston believes her days of getting sassy with Time Lords may not be finished just yet.
When asked for a comment at Mega-Con, Kingston responded with “all I can say is… spoilers! But what I will say is the sonic screwdriver that I had in Silence In The Library, which had been given to me by the Doctor, is not the sonic screwdriver that has been seen… yet.”
Don’t you just love when actors remember such nerdy details? Will we ever get an answer as to which Doctor gave River that sonic, then? It’s hard to tell, but Kingston did add »

Did the spoiler-y Terminator:Genisys trailer make you smirk? Do you cringe at Steven Moffatt’s tenure as showrunner of Doctor Who? Then, this issue of Munchkin might be what sci-fi fans are looking for as writer Tom Siddell and Ian McGinty skewer both post-apocalyptic and time travel fiction in the aptly named “12 Munchkies”. Munchkin #5 follows the adventures of an unnamed, mohawk sporting hero, who is sent back in time by a shady group of people to find out why humanity went underground. Along the way, he meets his female counterpart from some timeline, and together they make fun of almost every big time travel story from H.G. Wells to the present.

Doctor Who fans get a bad rep for being overly devoted to their cause and, well… socially inept – *ahem* – but, to give credit where credit’s due, they sure as hell are a talented bunch.
In fact, they love Doctor Who so much that they usually take to expressing their obesssion through the means of creativity, whether it’s by writing their own fan fiction, drawing pictures or creating humorous Gifs and posting them online with the intention of earning a few extra brownie points from their fellow fandom brethren.
Unless you’ve spent the last few years living in the Medusa Cascade, you’ll know all too well what a ‘Gif’ is. For those of you who can’t read the base code of the Universe, however, they’re basically animated images that dominate your social media timelines and make you laugh out loud way more than you’d ever care to admit. »

We’ll soon be seeing a lot more of Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe when the Mad Titan takes centre stage for Avengers: Infinity War, but in the meantime we’ve had to make do with his post-credits scenes in The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, as well as a brief appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy.
While we await his next appearance (Thor: Ragnarok?), the folks at Luma Pictures have posted a featurette which delves into the VFX work that went into bringing Thanos to life for Guardians of the Galaxy, and you can check it out here (via ComicBook)…
“Loic Zimmermann our concept designer took the most prevalent features of Josh Brolin that we thought would stand out the most and put them into who the character is underneath,” Luma Pictures VFX supervisor Vincent Cirelli tells FX Guide. “He began blending those elements. We’ve taken Josh’s eyes, »

Doctor Who fans could see a return of River Song in the future.
He told Radio Times: "It entirely depends on whether we've got a good story.
"It's certainly not ruled out. I have a sort of worry about keeping anybody around in the Doctor's life for too long. Because he's the Man who Leaves."
Moffat's predecessor Russell T Davies is also championing her return to the show.
"I mentioned in passing to Russell that we were probably done with River," Moffat added. "He said, 'You can't be done with River! No, no, no. Capaldi and Kingston, it's a sex storm!"

It all started off so innocently. Christian Cawley and Brian A Terranova settled down to chat about some recent Doctor Who news when it all got too much for the American.

He may have changed face but does the Doctor still fancy Clara? Well, Steven Moffat seems to think so… At the beginning of his tenure as the Doctor, Peter Capaldi insisted that there would be no romance between the Doctor and his companions; specifically, there would be ‘no papa-nicola moments’, adding that there had been...

Writer Peter Harness is currently on a roll. After attracting praise for his work on Wallander, his Doctor Who episode Kill The Moon brought him to more mainstream attention. But it’s his current work which should propel him to the A-List of British writing talent, a place fully deserved. Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, the 800+ page period fantasy novel, considered by many to be unadaptable, has debuted as a TV series on the BBC to rave reviews (not least on this site).
One of the adaptation's key strengths is the streamlined nature of the script, which still captures perfectly the world and characters created by novelist Susanna Clarke. For that, Perter Harness must earn the plaudits. Proving to be a very charming and clever guy, he took the »
In an interview for BBC Writersroom, Whithouse appeared to play down the possibility of resurrecting the supernatural BBC Three series.
"We all know shows that have outstayed their welcome, or been cynically resurrected," he said.
"No-one would thank me - least of all the Being Human fans - if I went back with anything other than a stunning and revolutionary idea. Anything less would demean the show. And I haven't had that idea."
Being Human - a drama about a ghost, a werewolf and a vampire attempting to lead normal lives - aired five series on BBC Three between 2008 and 2013.

DC doesn't have the greatest track record with their cinematic endeavors, but when it comes to television, they've had some amazing hits. However, outside of animation, they didn't really branch out to many of their second tier heroes until Smallville hit the air. We were then introduced to not only the young Clark Kent, but eventually Green Arrow, Cyborg, Aquaman, Impulse and many other heroes before its ten year run ended. A year and a half later, producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg brought us Arrow, starring Steven Amell as Oliver Queen in a darker, grittier take on the hero (which has borrowed more than a little from the Batman comics), who has returned home to find that his city has been run down by corrupt politicians and a seedy criminal element. Taking on the guise of Arrow, he sets out on his own to take his city back, only »
