Slightly inevitably, Call of Duty: Black Ops continues its domination at the top of last week’s top sellers, with notable new entries in the form of Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit at two and three respectively. Elsewhere, Harry Potter enters at a disappointing 20, and F1 2010 resurfaces at number 17 - just in time for Codemasters to wrap up that licencing deal for next season.

I must be really out of the loop because I had no idea the Sean Bean post-apocalyptic survival monster movie The Lost Future premieres on Syfy this weekend. Looking at these two clips from this South African production, it looks to potentially be a considerable step up from the usual schlock Syfy typically unspools on their Saturday evenings.
Sean Bean might wish he was back in the Lord of the Rings shire when he finds himself amongst the few humans trying to survive in a primitive wasteland populated by behemoths and mutant manimals in this Syfy original from Mikael Salomon, director of the 2004 remake of Salem's Lot and 2008 remake of The Andromeda Strain.
A group of post-apocalyptic survivors struggle to survive in a world where jungles and forests and primeval wetlands and deserts have obliterated civilization. They staunchly face genetically mutating beasts and mysterious diseases in an attempt to re-establish »
Ok, I’m not saying the days of Mansquito and Sharktopus are gone, it appears that SyFy is now getting movies people want to see.
Last Saturday Red: The Werewolf Hunter brought in big numbers for the channel. We’re talking 2.06 million viewers. Of course the big draw was Felicia Day, the love interest from Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-Long Blog and creator of her own web series, The Guild. Since Dr. Horrible came out, Felicia has become a cult icon amongst the geek community. So people have really been waiting for a movie with her in it.
SyFy’s next movie will star Sean Bean in The Lost Future, and is set in an exotic and dangerous future world where an isolated tribe battles for survival in a landscape overrun by mutated beasts carrying a mysterious and deadly illness.
Assuming the film does well, it will be the flagship for a series of 3 films. »
I don’t have the SyFy channel up in Canada, but I’ll admit that I did manage to catch one of SyFy’s original movies: Stonehenge Apocalypse. I only really watched it because Misha Collins was in it and I’m a Supernatural fan, but, aside from the cheesy special effects (which were likely due to a low budget more than anything else), it wasn’t terrible for a made-for-tv movie. I guess these original movies must be doing pretty well, because Syfy has been making more of them. Including two movies which will be airing in November.

Here it comes, Syfy fans, the big list of premiere dates.

Despite initial hiccups (such as whether Johnny Depp would return or not) Pirates of the Caribbean 4 has been moving forward quite smoothly for awhile, especially when it comes to casting.
After it was confirmed that Depp would be returning as fan-favorite Captain Jack Sparrow, we learned of two new major casting additions: Ian McShane (as the villain Blackbeard) and Penelope Cruz (as Blackbeard’s daughter and Captain Jack’s “equal”).
Now we’re hearing word of some possible new Pirates of the Caribbean 4 casting additions, one of which may be pretty major.
Firstly, Production Weekly Tweeted that Stephen Graham (Public Enemies) is currently in talks to star in Pirates of the Caribbean 4 as a character called “Scram.” No other details were given, but I’m guessing the character is one of the pirates either helping or hindering Captain Jack’s quest to find the Fountain of Youth.
