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, »

NBC Revives "Emerald City," "Revolution"

15 April 2015 3:01 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

NBC has revived its previously cancelled fantasy drama project "Emerald City".

David Schulner ("Dracula," "Ironside") is attached to write, executive produce and serve as show runner on the ten-episode straight to series drama which was originally picked up straight to series in January 2014.

That previous version had Josh Friedman ("Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles") attached to pen the script alongside Matt Arnold. The network opted not to move forward with the project after NBC and producers could not agree on a shared vision for the show.

The new take sees a twenty-year-old Dorothy Gale and her K9 police dog transported to the fabled Land of Oz, a place where wicked witches don’t stay dead for long and a young girl becomes a headstrong warrior who holds the fate of kingdoms in her hands.

This marks the first straight-to-series project to be revived in recent years, several other high profile »

Wizard Of Oz-Inspired Drama Emerald City Lands Full Series Order

15 April 2015 1:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After a two-year stint in development limbo and a cancellation eight months ago, NBC has retrieved its Wizard Of Oz-inspired TV series from the trash. The series, titled Emerald City after the sparkly green-tinged metropolis known as Oz, has undergone a resurrection by network brass who have decided it holds some value after all. Along with its ten-episode straight-to-series order, David Schulner (Do No Harm, The Playboy Club) is now attached to write and executive produce.

Universal Television, who is developing and producing the series, has struggled to lift the show off the ground for years in its various permutations. Matthew Arnold (Siberia) concocted the idea and scripted the pilot which received additional punch-ups by Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles). While that iteration failed to launch, the current television climate could be the reason by NBC’s change of heart.

Per Deadline, the show has been described as »

Emerald City Twister: NBC Un-Cancels Wizard of Oz Event Series

15 April 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Ding-dong the witch is dead alive!

Eight months after abruptly pulling the plug on Emerald City, NBC has revived its re-imagining of the classic Wizard of Oz universe with a 10-episode order, TVLine has learned.

RelatedMeet Dorothy and the Oz-some Residents of NBC’s Emerald City

The project — which blends elements from author L. Frank Baum’s 14-novel collection — was scrapped last August due to creative differences between Ep/writer Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) and NBC. David Schulner (The Event) has now taken the showrunner reins from Friedman.

Did You Already Pick Up on This Game of Thrones/Terminator Connection?

14 April 2015 4:55 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Maybe you picked up on this little tidbit when Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke was cast as Sarah Connor in this Summer's Terminator Genisys, or maybe it hasn't dawned on you yet, but there's a funny coincidence at play here. That is, Clarke won't be the first Game of Thrones star to play Sarah Connor, the Terminator franchise's tough mother - Lena Headey has also played her in the short-lived Fox series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Since they both look so different out of their roles, let's go over each woman's transformation into the iconic character. »

8 Greatest Series Revivals In TV History

7 April 2015 2:38 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

ABC

Until a few years ago, the cancellation of a TV show mean’t it was never coming back. Questions would remain unanswered, cliffhangers would be unresolved and the fate of your favourite characters would be left hanging in the wind. But then something changed. Shows long thought dead got a second chance and now we live in a world where ’90s classics like Twin Peaks and The X-Files are making their long awaited return to TV.

It is easy to now take for granted that TV shows can get a second lease of life. Amazon saved Ripper Street after the BBC ended it, J.R. Ewing heralded in the second generation of Dallas, which lasted three years, and Futurama returned after a series of successful TV movies. But there are still so many more shows that never returned from the grave and great cult classics like Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles »

Exclusive: Thomas Dekker Talks Stepping into the Claustrophobic Chamber for Fear Clinic

20 February 2015 8:59 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

From the Laid to Rest films to Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Thomas Dekker has played a plethora of memorable roles in the horror and sci-fi genres. His performance in Robert Hall’s Fear Clinic is no exception—in his third collaboration with director Hall, Dekker turns in a fascinating performance as Blake, a young man suffering from brain damage and Ptsd after surviving a madman’s public shooting spree.

With Fear Clinic now available on Blu-ray and DVD from Anchor Bay, we caught up with the Dekker to discuss bringing Blake to life in non-vocal ways, his character’s chilling backstory, working with the legendary Robert Englund, facing his own fear during filming, and much more.

What were the challenges of realistically portraying a character with brain damage and Ptsd? Did digging into that role require any in-depth research?

Thomas Dekker: I have to give a lot of credit to Rob Hall. »

Icons of Fright Interview With Fear Clinic’s Thomas Dekker!

16 February 2015 6:29 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Beginning his acting career very young, Fear Clinic‘s Thomas Dekker has worked with everyone from John Carpenter to Jerry Seinfeld and most people in between. Always jumping into each role and doing a hell of a job with them, Dekker’s always good, even if certain films might not have been (I’m not the biggest fan of the A Nightmare On Elm Street remake, but still liked what Dekker brought to the table). When Dekker was cast as a young John Connor in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, he met and began a creatively rich working relationship with FX maestro Rob Hall, who went on to cast Dekker in both Laid To Rest films, as well as Fear Clinic. Playing Blake, a mysterious (and somewhat catatonic) survivor of a shooting which comes to the film’s Fear Clinic to be cured of his fears, Dekker does an excellent »

'Hot Pursuit' Trailer: Reese Witherspoon And Sofia Vergara Are On The Run

13 February 2015 6:17 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

This summer, Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara will star in a buddy cop comedy called Hot Pursuit. Reese Witherspoon plays the goody-goody cop and Sofia Vergara is the sexy widow of a drug lord. Check out the first trailer below.

Directed by Anne Fletcher (The Proposal, The Guilt Trip), Hot Pursuit, follows an uptight cop tries to protect a sexy and outgoing widow of a drug boss as they race through Texas, pursued by crooked cops and murderous gunmen.

The comedy also stars John Carroll Lynch (“American Horror Story,” Shutter Island), Rob Kazinsky (“True Blood,” Pacific Rim) and Richard T. Jones (“Hawaii Five-o,” “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”).

Hot Pursuit feels like a knock-off of some comedy starring Melissa McCarthy. However, it is interesting to see this duo in a comedy that you would normally see someone like McCarthy, Sandra Bullock and/or Jennifer Aniston. Also, it's nice to see »

Review: Fear Clinic

9 February 2015 1:48 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

When the FEARnet web series, Fear Clinic, appeared a few years back, it was great to see different phobias put under the microscope and dealt with, with the help of Robert Englund’s Dr. Andover character at the helm of his “Fear Chamber”, a device used to force people to face whatever scares them. Each entry was very episodic, and when it had finished, a feature-length version of the film seemed like a surefire thing to do. Thanks to director Rob Hall and co-writer Aaron Drane, fans get just that, with the new Fear Clinic feature, a film that while still feeling close to the original web-series, does an excellent job standing on its own and offering fans a wild ride.

In the time that has passed in between the web-series and the film, Dr. Andover has become somewhat of a medical celebrity, winning awards, gracing the covers of magazines »

Trailer Trashin': Super Bowl Xlix Movie Spot Roundup

4 February 2015 8:24 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Another Super Bowl has come and gone – my congratulations to the New England Patriots, and my sympathies to the Seattle Seahawks. But for cinephiles like me, the main draw of the Big Game is the new TV spots for upcoming movies. This year, there were a staggering fourteen movie spots shown during Super Bowl Xlix, and in this edition of Trailer Trashin’, I’ll give you my quick takes on some of them.

 Avengers: Age of Ultron

Premise: With S.H.I.E.L.D. destroyed and the Avengers needing a hiatus from stopping threats to humanity, Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) attempts to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program with Ultron (James Spader), a self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence. But the plan backfires when Ultron decides that humans are the real enemy and sets out to eradicate them from the Earth, and it is up to Iron Man, Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans »

Fox's Acerbic Detective Backstrom Is Not House, Says Star Rainn Wilson

21 January 2015 2:37 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Fox’s newest antihero Backstrom may sound familiar — caustic, sardonic, talented at his job — but he isn’t a House clone, Rainn Wilson asserts.

Bones creator Hart Hanson’s new series (premiering Thursday at 9/8c) stars Office alum Wilson as a detective with a very mean superpower when it comes to solving crimes.

Videos Is Fox’s Backstrom a Rat-Faced Podiatrist, or a Lesbian Terrorist?

“He so lives in the worst of himself, and in the worst of the human condition, that he’s able to see that in others,” Wilson says.

And while that makes him exceptional at his work, »

Backstrom Review – TV Fox

20 January 2015 5:10 PM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Backstrom Review

Fox has a daring bet it’s making on Backstrom, and though we might not like to admit to the pigeonholing it entails, a lot of people are going to have to take Rainn Wilson in exactly the right way for the show to take off. We’ll have to hope it works out, because this is the coolest show in a long time, and Wilson is perfect.

The trick here is that the show may need the help of Rainn Wilson as draw, but that audience also has to be able to distance themselves from Dwight Schrute. Wilson has obviously been around, but to a large percentage of people he is either no one, or Dwight, and you aren’t getting anything like Dwight here.

Backstrom, for the sake of brevity, is a kind of slovenly, “Seinfeld generation” Sherlock Holmes. He’s quick with a quip, and »

New Power Rangers Movie "Is Being Filmed This Year"

19 January 2015 4:01 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In May of last year, Saban Brands and Lionsgate officially announced a new Power Rangers feature film was in the works. Then Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz were hired to write the screenplay. They're writing credits include X:Men: First Class, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Fringe. Roberto Orci, who co-wrote J.J. Abrams' Star Trek films and Michael Bay's Transformers films, was brought in to be the film's executive producer, but he left because he was too busy getting ready to Star Trek 3. Welp, he's free now. Outside of all of that, we really haven't heard anything new regarding this Power Rangers reboot. Actor/professional martial arist Jason David Frank, who still has strong ties to Saban Brands has said in the past that he will more than likely have a cameo in the new film. In a recent interview with comicbook.com, Frank reiterates his interest »

James Cameron’s First ‘Avatar’ Sequel Pushed Back to 2017

14 January 2015 6:30 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The writing process for James Cameron‘s “Avatar” sequels is so “involved” that he has had to push the release date for the first back to late 2017.

The Associated Press reports the Academy Award winner behind “Titanic” and “The Terminator” dropped the bad news for fans hoping to see the first of three new movies in 2016 while promoting the local film industry in Wellington, New Zealand with “Hobbit” director Peter Jackson. Cameron filmed the 2009 blockbuster there, and has returned to produce the three sequels, which will be released over three consecutive years.

10 Things You Need To Know About Terminator: Genisys

3 January 2015 3:20 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

There’s nary a film franchise as iconic yet as beleaguered as the Terminator franchise over the past decade or so. After the initial two films became a huge part of popular culture, with everything from the music to star Arnold Schwarzenegger’s famous “I’ll be back” quote becoming ingrained in our collective consciousness, the franchise strayed from the course, veering into B-movie territory with Jonathan Mostow’s Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines, struggling to portray the future war fans wanted in McG’s Terminator: Salvation, and having just mild success with the cancelled-too-soon Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles on the small screen.

In short, nothing has come close to the first two films and director James Cameron’s vision. With Cameron busy working on two or three Avatar sequels when not skiing down mountains of money, and Arnold coming out of retirement, struggling at the box office, »
