In Defence Of: Firefly's cancellation

13 December 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Back in December 2002 a million voices cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced by the Fox network. It probably sounded a bit like the noise you made when you read the title of this feature.

Defending the decision to cancel Joss Whedon's beloved sci-fi show after just 14 episodes might seem like geek treason, but whilst Fox's intentions were borderline criminal, the results were nothing short of revolutionary.

First things first: Firefly is one of the greatest sci-fi shows of all time. The closest thing to Star Wars since 1983, and arguably the best thing Joss Whedon has ever made, it's the holy grail of space-western comedy-dramas. In the 12 years since it was canned, the short-lived series has become a cult phenomenon for good reason. In 2007, the box set was even rocketed up to the International Space Station's intergalactic DVD library (which, to be fair, also includes 50 First Dates »

An Epic Obama Romance Movie Is in the Works

5 December 2014 6:55 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

First dates are usually the stuff of nightmares, not to mention memoirs, columns, and blog posts, but sometimes they result in spectacular romances that go all the way to the White House.

"Southside With You" is an upcoming indie that will follow the first date of the First Couple, Barack and Michelle Obama, back in 1989. Once Obama successfully convinced his boss Michelle (née Robinson) to go out with him on a date, he took her to the Art Institute, where they had lunch, and then they went on a long walk. The two capped off their date with a trip to the cinema, where they caught a little movie called "Do The Right Thing."

Tika Sumpter ("Get On Up," "Ride Along") will star as Michelle, but there isn't anyone attached to co-star as Barack - yet. Michelle described her impression of Barack after their first date as "hip, cutting edge, »

Disney Hires Peter Segal to Direct Goblins

22 November 2014 9:02 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Peter Segal is set to direct a new film being developed at Disney called Goblins. The project is based on a children’s book called Goblins! A Survival Guide and Fiasco in Four Parts, which was written by Ari Berk and illustrated by Brian Froud. Froud is a Hugo-winning artist who worked as Jim Henson’s conceptual designer on Labyrinth and Dark Crystal.

There’s no word on if the film will be fully animated, live-action, or a combination of both. Tom Astle and Matt Ember are writing the script, and it has the potential to be a great film. After all, who doesn’t like a bunch of crazy nasty goblins running around? Here’s a description of the book:

Anyone who brings home this book will be in big trouble. Renowned artist Brian Froud and scholar Ari Berk have conducted a thorough investigation into the goblin realm. (For the uninformed, »

11 of the weirdest bootleg DVD covers: True Detective, Batman Begins

18 October 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Translating movies and television for international markets can be a tricky business, as we discovered last year when we assembled this collection of 20 titles that got lost in translation.

But if you want to descend to a whole new level of weirdness, you need to look beyond the official channels. Whether it's a pirated disc being hawked in the street or a bona fide copy resold in unofficial packaging, these are products where the normal quality standards simply do not apply.

Below we've rounded up 11 of the world's most bizarre bootleg DVD covers, featuring dodgy Photoshopping, garbled Babelfish-style synopses, and entire actors being accidentally dropped in from other movies or TV shows.

1. True Detective

God, True Detective was a great show. Remember that episode where Rust and Marty go to Vegas and live it up in faux-Paris before narrowly escaping an exploding building on the back of a phoenix?

Nicole Kidman's New Movie Looks a Whole Lot Like Memento

7 October 2014 4:02 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If 50 First Dates and Memento had a movie baby, it would probably look a whole lot like Before I Go to Sleep. The upcoming thriller is an adaptation of S.J. Watson's bestseller about a woman (Nicole Kidman) who wakes up every day with no memory. It's a result of a traumatic brain injury that she can't even remember, until one day she starts trying. Soon, she becomes suspicious of everyone, including her husband (Colin Firth) and her doctor (Mark Strong). This is on our list of the most anticipated book-to-movie adaptations of the Fall, so I've got my fingers crossed that it's good. Before I Go to Sleep is set for an Oct. 31 release date, and you can watch the trailer below! »

Adam Sandler’s landmark deal to produce and star in four feature films for Netflix will not fundamentally alter his longstanding relationship with Sony Pictures.

First Dates is better than Gogglebox and I'm glad it's coming back

6 October 2014 3:13 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Surely, after two unloved series, it will be third time lucky for the daddy of all rubbernecking TV dating shows

If you count yourself as a regular viewer of Channel 4s First Dates, then pat yourself on the back. Youre in a pretty exclusive club. Hardly anyone watched the first series last year. One week, it was even beaten in the ratings by The Girl with 7 Mums one of those documentaries that Channel 5 makes title-first by closing its eyes and flinging a fistful of magnetic poetry tiles against a fridge door.

This years second series fared better, but not enough for anyone to actually notice that it was on. All the signs pointed to a failed experiment. Like many of the contestants whod previously appeared on it, First Dates looked doomed to die alone and unloved.

Adam Sandler to make four movies exclusively for Netflix

2 October 2014 1:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There was a period in time when Adam Sandler produced comedy movies that people wanted to see. But after a long string of comedic duds and box office flops (save for Grown Ups 2 of course), it seems that Sandler’s star has fallen somewhat. However, Netflix have announced that they will be teaming up with Sandler to make four exclusive movies for the streaming service.

Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer said, “People love Adam’s films on Netflix and often watch them again and again. His appeal spans across viewers of all ages — everybody has a favourite movie, everyone has a favourite line — not just in the U.S. but all over the world.”

Sandler added, “When these fine people came to me with an offer to make four movies for them, I immediately said yes for one reason and one reason only: Netflix rhymes with ‘wet chicks. »

2 October 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Channel 4 has recommissioned First Dates for an extended third series.

The observational documentary, which holds a microscope to the modern British dating scene, will return for 12 new episodes next year.

The series focuses on a number of first dates between singletons who have never met before, with the First Dates restaurant opening its doors to single people of all ages, genders and backgrounds.

Fixed cameras across the restaurant capture all the action from the couples' first meetings, whether this is the early spark of love, an awkward series of bad chat-up lines - or pure silence.

At the end of each date, the couples speak candidly to the cameras about their experience and reveal whether they would like to see their date again.

Channel 4 Documentary Commissioning Editor Madonna Benjamin said: "The last series brought a mix of daters with stories of triumph, tragedy, humour and despair. We'll be »
