Masters of the Universe Movie Begins Shooting This Spring?

After a few false starts and personnel changes, it looks like Sony's Masters of the Universe reboot is finally going to start production this spring. It was reported late last year that David S. Goyer is attached to co-write and direct the Masters of the Universe reboot, which still has an official release date of December 18th, 2019. Goyer is known for his screenwriting work on Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, as well as Warner Bros.' Man of Steel. His previous directing credits include 2004's Blade: Trinity, the 2009 horror movie The Unborn and episodes of Starz's Da Vinci's Demons, which he created.

Omega Underground reports that Masters of the Universe will finally begin production this coming April. It isn't clear where the production will film at this time, but the report suggests Europe is a strong contender since Sony has recently filmed some of its recent larger movies over there.

Game Of Thrones season 7 episode 5 review: Eastwatch

Ron Hogan Aug 14, 2017

The latest Game Of Thrones season 7 episode builds towards a future big battle and is packed with fascinating character work. Spoilers...

This review contains spoilers.

Does the lack of travelling on Game Of Thrones bother the viewing audience? It seems to be something brought up consistently; the characters appear to fly around the continent of Westeros without much concern for travelling time. They move from location to location without any real time passing between set-ups. Granted, one of them has the only flying vehicle on the planet, and the others seem to be fairly accomplished sailors and travellers, but you can get only so far on a horse or boat...

Starz’s Chris Albrecht On Why ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’ Was Cancelled & How It Will End
Starz recently announced that the upcoming third season of Da Vinci’s Demons will be the period drama’s last. The series, which has been off the air for almost year and a half, has been a respectable performer, so the decision to end it before seeing how Season 3 does was somewhat of a surprise. It came down to having stronger shows that appeal to the same demographics, CEO Chris Albrecht said. “We really believe in serving underserved audiences in the premium cable…

'Reign' review: Romantic fiction only enhances history

"Reign" is not a historically accurate portrayal of Mary, Queen of Scots' teen years. But that shouldn't matter -- the CW drama is historical fiction and succeeds admirably in giving viewers a tasted of 16th century life in the most fun way it can.

You don't want to miss this one.

A brief history of "Reign"

Set in the mid-16th century, "Reign" focuses on the Scottish Queen Mary (Adelaide Kane) during her teen years at the French court. A ruler since she was only 6 days old, Mary is expected to marry the heir to the French monarchy, Francis (Toby Regbo). Although the show (fortunately) only skirts around the issue, the basis for all of this is both standard dynastic alliances and a desire to uphold Catholicism in the face of expansionist and Protestant policies in England.

Mary is expected to save herself for Francis, of course, but there are

How Does 'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Composer Bear McCreary Come Up With The Score?

We're big fans of composer Bear McCreary around here, from his work on "Battlestar Galactica," "Da Vinci's Demons," and more. So how does the prolific musician put together the score for a show like "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."? Not like this. Not like this:

Yeah, so not quite how he actually does the score, but it is fun to see him goofing around on the stage. To get a little more in depth view, you can check out this video:

And here's another little snippet:

Biggest takeaway here is that McCreary is using an entire live orchestra, which is kind of amazing. The "S.H.I.E.L.D." theme is pretty great... And now we know why.

What do you think of the "S.H.I.E.L.D." score? Let us know in the comments below or hit us up on Twitter!

Da Vinci's Demons season 2 trailer

Trailer Louisa Mellor 14 Oct 2013 - 08:42

Da Vinci's Demons is returning in 2014, with more episodes, more locations, more hair, and more adventure...

One of many geek truffles sniffed out by this weekend's Nycc er, pig (we're already regretting this dreadful analogy) is this rather exciting trailer for season two of Fox and Starz' Da Vinci's Demons

The season one finale saw our hero in a tricky spot and below is proof that not only did Leonardo survive the cliff-hanger, but he survived to travel to Peru, get hair extensions, and seek knowledge that may bring an end to all wars.

In the run-up to season two, we'll have plenty more on Da Vinci's Demons, gleaned from a fun day out Den of Geek spent on the hugely impressive set, where, we kid you not, the clever production designers had reconstructed Macchu Picchu, in a car park, in South Wales. Ambition

Nycc: David S. Goyer and Tom Riley Tease Season 2 of Da Vinci's Demons

Even though Leonardo da Vinci is one of the most recognizable figures in history, few are aware of the details of his youth in Florence, Italy. Upon realizing that da Vinci had no television presence, David S. Goyer seized the opportunity, tapping into the wealth of historical information, combining it with some fictional elements, and churning out the Starz series, "Da Vinci.s Demons." Just days after the show's April 12, 2013 premiere to record-breaking numbers, the show locked in a second season and discussions regarding a third are currently underway. Focusing on a young Leonardo da Vinci (Tom Riley), "Da Vinci's Demons" highlights the burdens of the legendary inventor and artist's intellectual genius. In season two, Florence is in turmoil, threatened by...

'Da Vinci's Demons' and 'Black Sails': Starz teases its 2014 series at New York Comic-Con

The settings of Starz's series "Black Sails" and "Da Vinci's Demons" are separated by an ocean and a few hundred years in time, but they are both very much in keeping with the Starz brand of highly charged period dramas.

The cable channel released trailers for Season 2 of "Demons" and the inaugural run of "Black Sails" at New York Comic-Con on Friday. Both are full of men declaiming about destiny and honor, battle scenes and steamy sex.

"Black Sails," which premieres in January, is a prequel to "Treasure Island" focusing on Capt. Flint (Toby Stephens) and a young John Silver (Luke Arnold).

"Da Vinci's Demons" picks up with Leonardo (Tom Riley) working to defend Florence against the machinations of Rome while searching far and wide for the Book of Leaves and his own history. It's set to return in the spring.
