15 underappreciated books: sci-fi, fantasy, horror fiction

2 July 2015 6:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Looking for a good book recommendation? Our writers have a few unsung sci-fi, fantasy and horror gems up their sleeves...

Other people. What’s the point of them? They’re noisy and everywhere.

There is one thing they’re especially good at, however, and that’s recommending new stuff. In the spirit of that, we asked our writers to recommend great books that, for whatever reason, haven’t been surrounded by as much fuss and recognition as they deserve.

Nominations came in for personal favourites in fiction, non-fiction, children’s books and graphic novels, so we’ve divided them up into a series of features, the first of which is below, on great unsung sci-fi, fantasy, horror and thriller adult fiction.

Our hope is that you’ll demonstrate your worth as other people by carrying on the recommendations in the comments section below. Thanks in advance.

'Steve Jobs' Trailer: Watch Michael Fassbender Play the Brilliant Man Who Invented Our Future

1 July 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Steve Jobs was one of the most influential men of the 20th and 21st centuries. A driving force in the personal computer and smartphone revolutions, his vision and commitment to bold new ideas changed the daily lives of billions of people. And while there have already been a number of movies about the man behind the iPhone, none have carried quite as much prestige as this fall's Steve Jobs. The new movie is directed by Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours), written by Aaron Sorkin (A Few Good Men, The Social Network), and stars Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class, Prometheus), and now we've got a new look at it thanks to the first full-length trailer below. Steve Jobs also stars Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, and Jeff Daniels. It hits theaters on October 9, 2015...

Prometheus Ending: How Does This Movie Connect To Alien?

1 July 2015 1:52 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Ridley Scott.s Prometheus is a movie that catches a lot of flack. Admittedly, some of it is well deserved. Seriously, it has the dumbest characters with the worst decision-making skills ever put on screen. As a precursor to the Alien movies, it obviously doesn.t live up to the (possibly unfair) expectations piled upon it before release. People were hoping for something epic and game changing to the point where anything less would have been a disappointment. And guess what? It ain.t perfect, not by a long shot. But that doesn.t mean it.s completely without redeeming qualities. Scott has said that while Prometheus isn.t a prequel to Alien, and there may not necessarily be a causal link between the two, it does exist in that world, and the ties between the two are strong indeed. This film may take place much earlier on the timeline »

Say What You Will About the Academy - But Some Cool International Names Among 2015 New Member Invitees

30 June 2015 6:47 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization." In recent years, the Academy membership has »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

“We are grateful to our incredible community of supporters who have helped make this museum a reality,” said Dawn Hudson, the Academy’s CEO. “Building this museum has been an Academy »

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

26 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »

10 Movie Trailers that Surpassed Their Feature Length Counterparts

19 June 2015 10:54 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Feature length films can hardly hope to brave their condensed highlighted counterparts. Often a series of the film's most striking visual scenes and a tangent on the films main “ideas” they can sometimes surpass the grind of an hour, two, or three at a traveling peak of over sensory delight. Below I have assembled trailers that transcended their full-length partners or did well to weave a convincing mask. 

Star Wars Episode 2: Attack Of The Clones

In this film's teaser trailer, Vader’s heaves provide the tempo. Cutting in and out of black, brief awesome imagery of a grown Anakin, Boba Fett, and nostalgic bites of space battles fill the black. The snippets are thrilling, promising even (We hoped for an improved return). But at that point we hadn’t seen Hayden Christensen’s awkward portrayal of the soon to be iconic villain, or witnessed George Lucas’s taxing foreboding. »

15 of sci-fi cinema's most eccentric spaceships

19 June 2015 5:49 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

An alien craft shaped like an artichoke? A vessel with breasts? Here's our pick of 15 of sci-fi cinema's most eccentric spaceships...

For decades, heroes have crossed the universe in rocket ships and modified light freighters. Aliens have conquered galaxies in disc-shaped craft of varying sizes.

Yes, as long as there's been science fiction on the silver screen, spaceships have captured our imagination, from the matinee serials of the 30s to the sci-fi blockbusters of the present.

We all have our own idea of what a great spaceship should look like. For some, it's Han Solo's fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon. For others, it's the more graceful USS Enterprise, or maybe the utilitarian craft of 2001: A Space Odyssey. But what about cinema's more unusual, outlandish spaceships? The ramshackle ones, the anachronistic ones, the ones that look a bit rude, or just plain scary? Those are »

Movie News: Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt Will Star in 'Passengers'; Eli Roth to Direct Giant-Shark Movie 'Meg'

17 June 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Passengers: Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are moving closer to starring together in the sci-fi romance Passengers. The project has not yet received an official "green light" to start production in September, but pre-production has begun. If it goes forward as expected, Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game) would direct the big-budget film from an original screenplay by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus) about two people on a years-long journey through space. [Heat Vision]   Meg: Eli Roth is in talks to direct Meg, a thriller about a giant shark.

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt to team up in sci-fi ‘Passengers’

16 June 2015 3:07 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Passengers is a big budget sci-fi romance that has been bouncing around for years now, but with the massive box office success of Jurassic World, Sony Pictures has finally greenlighted the project with two newly massive stars: Jennifer Lawrence and Jurassic World’s Chris Pratt.

THR describes Passengers as Gravity with romance, and it’s a sci-fi set in the near future in which two cryogenic space travelers form a relationship on a spaceship when they are each awoken 90 years ahead of their destination. Morten Tyldum of last year’s Oscar nominated The Imitation Game will direct.

The film has reportedly been bouncing around for some time with numerous names attached, including Keanu Reeves, Reese Witherspoon, and Rachel McAdams. And the script by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus, Doctor Strange) is an original story that has likely met some resistance because it’s not based on a sequel a novel or anything of the sort. »

Sci-Fi 'Passengers' Starring Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Pratt Pushes Past Financial Issues, Gets Greenlight

16 June 2015 2:01 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Sony's new studio head, Tom Rothman, may be fiscally responsible, but that doesn't mean he won't spend money where it makes sense. While there were rumblings that he was not cool with the potential expense of the developing sci-fi romance "Passengers," starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt, he's gotten over it. THR reports that Sony has given the thumbs up to the movie that will be directed by "The Imitation Game" helmer Morten Tyldum. And those salaries that were causing a problem? No more. Lawrence will get a staggering $20 million, against 30% of the film's profit if it breaks even, which puts her in the upper echelon of A-list stars. Meanwhile, Pratt, who headed up the record breaking "Jurassic World," will bag $12 million, a boost from the $10 million he was previously slated to get.

Chris Pratt/Jennifer Lawrence Sci-Fi Romance Passengers Moving Forward

16 June 2015 1:52 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A lot of people have reason to be happy about the monstrous success of Jurassic World, and it appears that the film’s record-breaking box office may just be the boost needed to kick a developing sci-fi film called Passengers into production. Scripted by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus), Passengers has been in development for a long while, but it gained momentum earlier this year when Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence attached themselves to star with The Imitation Game director (and Oscar nominee) Morten Tyldum at the helm. But Sony Pictures began sweating the film’s hefty price tag, which was a result of nabbing top-tier talent at the peak of their respective popularities. Lawrence was getting $20 million for the pic, Pratt at least $10 million, and Tyldum was set to receive a salary in the mid seven figures—and that’s before taking into account the film’s visual effects.

Watch the first teaser for Season 2 of ‘The Leftovers’

15 June 2015 8:47 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While Damon Lindelof has been known for a number of movie screenplays over the years, including Prometheus and World War Z, his most prominent effort to date has been the ABC television series Lost. The writer returned to television last season, this time on HBO with an adaptation of Tom Perrotta’s novel The Leftovers, with the writer also involved in the tv adaptation.  The series quickly gained critical and commercial success, both for the show overall and for individual performances.

The show will be making some notable changes for its second season, shifting castmembers such as Liv Tyler to potential minor roles while adding Southland‘s Regina King on as a regular. The biggest change, however, will be a shift in the location, as the central family will be stepping out of Mapleton to go to Jarden, Texas. Justin Theroux, Carrie Coon, and Christopher Eccleston will all be returning, »
