"Boo, you've been the cover artist on Elephantmen for 50 issues now. What's that mean to you, having such consistency with a series?
Boo Cook: In all honesty, I was quite surprised to discover I’d notched up 50 covers for Elephantmen! Life as a freelancer is kind of a blur plunging from one job to the next, radically changing tack with each new cover or strip,

Stanley Kubrick’s mid-period masterpiece is almost as remarkable for how it has not influenced sci-fi filmmaking as for how it has. While special effects took a giant leap in 1968, to this day we still have the sounds of swooshing of ships and zapping lasers in the vacuum of outer space. Then there is the small matter of awe. It’s hard to think of another example of a science fiction movie with such an unflinching commitment to wonder.
Now 2001: A Space Odyssey is being re-released in honour of its 50th anniversary, with a pristine 4K remaster in its original, super-stretched 70mm aspect ratio.
After endless Star Wars instalments and Star Trek variations, there’s been nothing in mainstream sci-fi cinema that looks or sounds
“It’s absolutely terrifying,” Yorke told BBC Music 6 earlier this year about his process. “It’s hard because I’m way out of my comfort zone, and I can’t read music so it’s not like I’m writing for orchestra. I’m building it all myself. In fact, I watched ‘Blade Runner’ twice at the weekend. ‘Oh, that sound, I could do something like that, that’s quite easy…
Directed by Tony Scott.
Starring Catherine Deneuve, David Bowie, Susan Sarandon, Cliff De Young, and Beth Ehlers.
A scientist specialising in the research of ageing and sleep finds herself at the centre of a love triangle between two centuries old vampires.
One of my running themes this year has been to look at a few big screen adaptions Bram Stoker’s iconic novel Dracula. However, as a change of pace for this week we’re going to take a step away from the Count and take a very different kind of vampire film. This time we ditch the Gothic castles and cobwebs of the 1880s and instead head into the glitzy nightclubs and Goth bands of the 1980s as we take a look at Tony Scott’s ultra-stylish The Hunger.
The late Tony Scott was, I think it’s fair to say, a director who largely favoured style over substance.
Fast-paced action films are nothing without a pulsating movie score to raise the stakes and maintain the momentum throughout the most dramatic sequences. A brilliant example is the powerful theme “The Beast” by the late composer Jóhann Jóhannsson for the Oscar®-nominated film Sicario, which was re-imagined for the sequel Sicario 2: Soldado by composer Hildur Guðnadóttir.
To celebrate the release of Sicario 2: Soldado on digital download from 22nd October and on 4K Uhd, Steelbook, Blu-Ray & DVD from 29th October 2018, we are rounding up the top movies with the most memorable scores that continue to stir the senses time after time.

The Django Unchained and Miami Vice actor joins a growing cast that includes Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Michael Shannon and Lakeith Stanfield as well as Blade Runner 2049 star Ana De Armas which Deadline scooped yesterday. Johnson’s role is being kept under wraps, which is the case with the film’s story line and its dramatis personae.
Production begins next month on the independent feature that Mrc scooped up global rights to out of Toronto in a auction held by CAA Media Finance and FilmNation, with the Baby Driver producer committing north of $40M. Distributors are expected to emerge in the near future for Knives Out.
With Cassius Green’s (Lakeith Stanfield) newly discovered talent, it’s not long before he rises through the ranks of his company, moving closer to the inner circle of coke-snorting entrepreneur Steve Lift (Armie Hammer). But as Cassius soon discovers, Steve has some disturbing ambitions for him and the cost of success could be more than just alienation from both his colleagues and activist girlfriend Detroit (Tessa Thompson). Bursting with ideas, visual panache and caustic wit, Riley acerbically lampoons office life and offers savage commentary on the young African-American experience. Joining a triumphant new wave of radical black cinema, Sorry to Bother You establishes Riley as a filmmaking force to be reckoned with.
Boots Riley’s Sorry to Bother You
Using Hong Kong as the setting to ITV’s primetime drama Strangers with Chinese actors is a big deal. With so few roles for Chinese and east Asian actors in the UK, Strangers offered an opportunity to redress the balance. But there was also apprehension about how the city would be represented and whether we would have another Lost in Translation, where the far east becomes the exotic set for a lonely white character to explore their personal dramas, interspersed with sped-up cutaways of city traffic.
But I found myself pleasantly surprised. The show’s confusing plot twists surrounding Jonah’s wife Megan Harris’s murder left me scratching my head, but the real appeal was seeing my parents’ homeland

Thom Yorke's "Volk" has a creepy repeating melody played on a few synths that recall some of John Carpenter's best work. The over 6-minute track mostly plays of the same motif through different sounds and later introduces some drums and bass before pulling the rug out again. While it doesn't sound like Goblin's score for Dario Argento's original Suspiria,
Released under the name “Mutafukaz” in international territories. Mfkz is a collaboration from French comic artist Guillaume “Run” Renard and ultra-hip Japanese animation house Studio 4°C, creators of Tekkonkinkreet, Genius Party and Mind Game. The Tekkonkinkreet dream team of Shoujirou Nishimi and art director Shinji Kimura reunite to bring to life a dark but stunningly animated sci-fi vision that mixes anime, film noir, Lucha Libre, and gang culture in an orgy of first-person shooter mayhem.
I honestly thought I had seen the best this year had to offer by way of animated movies after having seen Teen Titans Go: To The Movies… that was of course till I received a trailer for the Mfkz. Now I have been known to get a little bit excited
Secret Cinema – the wildly popular immersive cinema event company in the UK – is heading into new territories both geographically and in terms of ambition.

When Villeneuve kicked off production on “2049” in July 2016, producer Cynthia Yorkin began her own side project by deciding to keep a running diary of milestones, setbacks, and overall observations from the set. Collider has exclusively published Yorkin’s production diary, which offers a fascinating in-depth look at the making of “2049” on a month-by-month basis. IndieWire has rounded up some exciting tidbits
Raised By Wolves is a serialized drama about “two androids tasked with raising human children on a mysterious virgin planet. As the burgeoning colony of humans threatens to be torn apart by religious differences the androids learn that controlling the beliefs of humans is a treacherous and difficult task.”
Scott is no stranger to telling stories with androids with film franchises such as Blade Runner and Alien under his belt. Scott had this to say in a statement:
“I’m always searching for new frontiers in the sci-fi genre and have found a true original in Raised by Wolves — a wholly distinct and imaginative world,

TNT is moving forward with series Raised by Wolves, an interplanetary TV series developed by Ridley Scott.
TNT appears to be boosting its lineup of genre television with the help of the legendary Ridley Scott for a TV offering, called Raised by Wolves. The drama-driven Turner cable channel – which announced a creative partnership with Scott last year – has officially given the other-planet-set TV project a straight-to-series order.
Scott won’t be the only notable creative name on the proverbial marquee for Raised by Wolves, since it is primarily the brainchild of Aaron Guzikowski, writer of director Denis Villeneuve’s acclaimed Hugh Jackman/Jake Gyllenhaal crime drama Prisoners, Jason Momoa TV series The Red Road and the recent Rami Malek-starring remake of Papillon. Indeed, Guzikowski will serve as writer, executive producer and showrunner. Scott will serve as an executive producer via his Scott Free shingle alongside David W. Zucker,
Raised by Wolves centers on two androids tasked with raising human children on a mysterious virgin planet. As the burgeoning colony of humans threatens to be torn apart by religious differences, the androids learn that controlling the beliefs of humans is a treacherous and difficult task.
Scott of course is no stranger to androids, having brought to the silver screen such sci-fi franchises as Blade Runner and (39-year-old spoiler alert!
