Official Trailer for Thriller 'Drone' Starring Sean Bean as a Drone Pilot

"Should I tell your wife and your son who you really are?" Screen Media Films has launched a trailer for Drone, yet another movie about drone pilots, this one featuring Sean Bean. Yes, that Sean Bean, the one from Lord of the Rings and "Game of Thrones". Drone is about a father who is secretly a drone pilot who spends his workdays flying covert missions then returns to family life. Everything changes when a Pakistani businessman, who feels he is responsible for the deaths of his wife and child, tracks him down leading to a harrowing confrontation.

Christmas-themed disaster movies to enjoy

  • Cinelinx
If you’re at all in touch with your geek side, you already know about all the great horror movies that are Christmas-themed. Chances are you’ve stumbled across Silent Night, Deadly Night, Black Christmas, or Santa’s Slay. Everybody knows Batman Returns and Die Hard take place around December 25th. However, did you know that several disasters have occurred around the most wonderful time of the year?

Anchor Bay Entertainment and the SyFy Channel spent the past few years reminding us that even the holidays aren’t safe from catastrophic events which could bring about the end of the world. Disaster-oriented Christmas movies were becoming an annual tradition up until 2013. The two media giants banned together for three straight years to bring us a trilogy of B-movie entertainment that I think it’s high time they continue.

Ice Quake was the first of these Yuletide disaster films to hit

Antje Traue Close to Securing Villainess Role in ‘Man of Steel’

It looks like Superman will have another bad guy girl to worry about in the Zack Snyder reboot, Man of Steel. Deadline reports that Antje Traue (pronounced “Ahnt-shay Trow-way”) is in the lead to win one of the villain spots beside General Zod who is played by Michael Shannon (Boardwalk Empire). Traue has not done much work in the States but she was one of the highlights in the sci-fi horror thriller Pandorum.

If the German beauty does nab the part, the speculation can soon begins as to who Traue will play. Based on all of the common ground this film appears to be treading with the early Christopher Reeve films odds are the part will be Ursa who was portrayed by Sarah Douglas in Superman and Superman II. Been there… Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz… done that.

However if writer David S. Goyer and Snyder are looking for a Kryptonian-based villain from the comics,

A Second Villain Cast in Snyder's Superman

Antje Traue in Pandorum

Photo: Overture Films I have not yet gotten around to seeing Pandorum, but for those of you that have and remember the character Nadia, you are already more familiar with Antje Traue, the German-born actress that will play the villainous Faora in Zack Snyder's upcoming Superman reboot, Man of Steel. The character was last played by Sharon Taylor in seven episodes of the "Smallville" TV series as the wife of General Zod.

The news was just announced that Traue will play Faora in the feature alongside Michael Shannon who will be playing the film's lead villain, General Zod. Apparently there were more than one instance of the character in the Superman universe and since I know nothing of the comic I will make way for the following description of the character courtesy of Wikipedia: The first Faora, Faora Hu-Ul, was introduced in Action Comics #471.

If you’ve been starving for an original steam punk adventure that’s easy on the eyes, look no further than the screen you’re reading this article.

'Riese' Is Like A Shakespearean Tragedy

When you think about successful series that have been developed for the web, you can't help but think about "Sanctuary." That series was so successful that Syfy moved it from the web to traditional television. Now, "Riese: Kingdom Falling" is in a very similar position after receiving a strong critical following and attracting several notable names within the genre. Set in the land of Eleysia, which has just witnessed a political coup d.état with Amara (Sharon Taylor, known for her roles in "Stargate: Atlantis" and "Smallville") taking control of the Kingdom. But she didn.t do it alone and was aided by The Sect, a fanatical religious group that has its own sinister plan (and presumably a purpose behind supporting Amara). But "Riese" is different from most fantasy shows. For a start, ...

‘Riese’ SyFy Promo Getting Us Pumped for Next Week

Riese is finally coming back online next week and the early promos (above) are getting us fired up again. Fans rumbled a bit when sci-fi Riese was abruptly taken offline during its first release last fall.

Having just signed an international distribution and sales deal with Fireworks, creators Ryan Copple and Kaleena Kiff had to pull it down to allow for a deal with SyFy to go through. Now the 10-episode steampunk inspired drama heads to SyFy.com as Riese: Kingdom Falling starting Tuesday October 26, with new episodes out every Tuesday and Thursday.
