David Ellison first created Skydance Productions for his own 2005 directorial debut When All Else Fails, but Skydance Media really started making waves in 2010 when it teamed up with Paramount Pictures for the Coen Brothers Western True Grit.
It went on to become the highest grossing Western ever and cemented the relationship between Skydance Media with Paramount who teamed-up for World War Z, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and other franchises like Star Trek and 2014’s Terminator: Genisys. (Obviously, some of those movies did better than others.)
For his new science fiction movie Life, based on an idea that Ellison came up with, he’s teamed with Sony Pictures, bringing together a cast that includes Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds and Rebecca Ferguson as part of the crew of the International Space Station who must examine a sample of life that’s been brought back from Mars.

For decades, the pinnacle of the sci-fi horror genre was Ridley Scott’s Alien, although it’s territory John Carpenter explored just as well with his version of The Thing in 1982 and plenty of others have followed suit.
Life, written by Deadpool scribes Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese and directed by Daniel Espinosa (Safe House), pays tribute to both those classics with a film that offers insight into the fairly simple idea of what it might be like to find life on another planet and what might happen if that existence proves to be hostile. This type of premise has driven the best science fiction in all formats, and while the way Life sometimes falls back on ways this premise has worked before that might make it feel derivative, it also offers enough tension to keep you invested throughout.

John Cho has signed on to play a key recurring role in Season 3 of the Hulu comedy, the network announced Wednesday. Cho will appear in multiple episodes as Todd, an advertising executive who’s every bit as mean and twisted as Billy (Eichner) and Julie (Julie Klausner). In fact, Todd and Billy meet while one-upping each other in a prank war; they soon couple up, as Billy explores his first romantic relationship as an adult. (Well, “adult.”)
Fred Written by Christopher Ford and Dakota Rose Directed by Dakota Rose Presented by On the Rocks Theatre Company at Dixon Place, NYC March 17-April 1, 2017
Dixon Place is a reliable venue for offbeat theater. If you're looking for, say, an earnest examination of twentysomethings trying to make it in the city, then it's probably best to look elsewhere. If, however, you're in the mood for sci-fi puppets or dance-filled reimaginings of Carroll's Wonderland, then Dixon Place has you covered. The latest of these unconventional offerings is Fred, a buoyant new comedy by Christopher Ford and Dakota Rose, creators of the recent The White Stag Quadrilogy.
Fred (Derek Smith) is a robot who began life as a pool vacuum and now spends his time keeping his inventor's widow, Diana (Shannon Holt), alive in a medically-induced coma since a long-ago stroke. Fred has decided to move with Diana from their home in Phoenix, »

The Cybermen, bar none, have always been my favourite Dr Who villains. In fact, not only my favourite Who villains, but in my top ten of science fiction villains ever. I could also bore you with reasons why they are not ‘villains’ as such in my mind, but unless you have a beer in your hand and a few hours to spare I’ll excuse you for now. It’s not just me of course, so why are the Cybermen so popular? I think, like the Daleks, they tap into two areas of the human mind. A fear of technology, of technology surpassing us and then suppressing us. Fear also of being imprisoned, of being turned into something we don’t want to be and something we cannot ever escape from.

I know, I know. You’re saying that my perception of Knights Of The Old Republic’s morality system is bolstered by nostalgia. Well, at least I hope that’s what you’re saying. Otherwise, you’re probably just calling me an idiot.
To be certain, KotOR’s morality system is best viewed through rose-tinted glasses. Its simplified take on good versus evil (as represented by the light side and dark side) doesn’t exactly force you to do much soul searching. »
It’s a race between the forces of good and evil! The first to reach the only Power Battery in the universe will control the destiny of all worlds! Can Hal Jordan and the crew of the Enterprise beat Sinestro and his allies to the ultimate prize?
With Khan now truly in control of the Red Ring of Rage and Sinestro on the way to the centre of the Universe to locate the Planet Oa and recharge the Yellow Ring of Fear, all isn’t looking rosy for the Federation and their Ring Bearer allies.
So far throughout these previous issues Mike Johnson and artist Angel Hernandez have delivered another excellent crossover series of Star Trek and Green Lantern. Though, being honest, I am learning more »
Although it’s not exactly shocking news, following the release of the latest action packed trailer and some new promotional artwork on cans of Dr. Pepper, the MPAA has official certified Wonder Woman as PG-13 for “sequences of violence and action, and some suggestive content.” None of that brief description differs from the norm regarding most comic book films, but it’s nice getting official confirmation.
There is always the possibility that there is an eventual R-rated Blu-ray cut similar to what Warner Bros. did with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and possibly to capitalize on the rising popularity of adult-oriented superhero films such as Deadpool and recently Logan. Realistically however, that probably won’t happen as all reports point to Wonder Woman being a much more light-hearted affair than the previous Dceu movies so far.

As DVD and Blu-ray sales fall, it's no longer certain that films will get a disc release. So what's happening?
Let’s start with a statistic.
In 2013, Hotel Transylvania shifted 1,029,614 copies on Blu-ray disc in the Us alone. A hefty number, yet the animated hit – which has thus far spawned one sequel, with another on the way – was only the 23rd best-selling Blu-ray release of the year in America that year, just trailing titles such as Turbo, Rise Of The Guardians, Django Unchained and Life Of Pi.
2013 was arguably the peak year for Blu-ray sales, with 23 individual titles selling a million copies or more in the Us. The best-selling of all, Despicable Me 2, shifted 4.6m copies alone, and many more overseas. On the DVD format, meanwhile, 45 different films sold a million units in America in 2013, including another 2.7m copies of Hotel Transylvania.
In recent years, however, »
This weekend, Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” scored a huge victory at the box office, earning $175 million, making it the biggest March opening of all time.
But it’s more than a box office victory — it’s a victory for everyone who believes that we all deserve a chance at happiness, no matter what you look like, who you love, or whether you’ve been placed under a curse by a powerful enchantress.
The film’s lesson is just as salient today as it was 25 years ago when the animated version was released: When we get stuck on the skin-deep traits that divide us, we miss out on the chance to know people who can shape and change our lives. When we’re open-minded and inclusive, we have a much easier time finding the adventure, joy, and love we seek.
This version of the film drives that point home »

Just when you thought award season was over, along comes another one… Last night Camden Roundhouse got was host to some very important people for the 2017 Three Empire Awards.
The awards are voted for by readers of the film magazine and tend to produce very different results to the likes of the BAFTAs and Oscars, the focus being much more on the fan favourite films that often get overlooked by the industry-led awards. Ryan Reynolds‘ Deadpool for example found no love at the Oscars, but was nominated for five Empire awards, taking home just one of them. Similarly Amy Adams was missed off of several Best Actress categories this season despite her amazing work in both Arrival and Nocturnal Animals. Sadly she lost out again, but at least she was nominated.
The big winner of the night was Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the film scooping up three of the big awards – Best Director, »

Revenge and Captain America star Emily VanCamp has signed on for the lead role in The Resident, a new medical drama pilot from Fox, which has been written by Amy Holden Jones, Haley Schore and Roshan Sethi.
The Wrap reports that the series will follow an idealistic young doctor (Matt Czuchry; The Good Wife) as he begins his first day under the supervision of a tough, brilliant senior resident who pulls the curtain back on all of the good and evil in modern day medicine.

The film takes place in December 1969 and follows the first major operation of the newly-formed Swat unit as they raid the los Angeles Headquarters of the Black Panther Party, and will tell the story of the resulting face off from both perspectives.
This marks another big feature film acquisition for Netflix, which this past week added the Ridley Scott / Tom Hardy project War Party, along with Orson Welles’ final film The Other Side of the Wind and the upcoming Toho-produced Godzilla anime.
Given Lin’s commitment to The Stand Off, it raises questions about whether he’ll be returning to direct the fourth instalment of Paramount’s rebooted Star Trek series, which is currently being written by Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne. »

Writing a TV show is a long-term commitment, and not everybody has the privilege to know how it’s all going to go, or even how long. Despite assurances that showrunners have plans for multiple seasons, things always change. “Lost” famously made it up as it went along, which might not have been for the best, but it’s worked well for other shows. That one last-minute fix, improvisation, or casting change affected these shows so drastically that it’s hard to imagine what they’d look like otherwise. From “Star Trek” to “Twin Peaks,” here are some examples. The only thing more iconic. »

To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, arguably the biggest drinking holiday of the year, we looked at some of the best drunk moments to grace the silver screen. From Humphrey Bogart’s classic, heartbreaking “of all the gin joints” speech in “Casablanca,” to the utterly ridiculous scene in “Team America” when the puppets spew their guts up, here are the 28 best drunk scenes on film.
“Leaving Las Vegas” — Booze Run
Although not a traditional “drunk scene,” the opening scene of “Leaving Las Vegas” — which sees Nicolas Cage’s Ben Sanderson dancing through a liquor aisle piling his cart sky high with booze — is as good a prelude to this list as any.
“Arthur” — Introducing Princess Gloria
Dudley Moore’s Arthur spends the majority of the film tipping back drinks, but his introduction of “Princess Gloria” to his aunt and uncle at a restaurant — and his insistence that Rhode Island could »
