Flashback: Bill and Ted Battle the Grim Reaper by Playing 'Battleship'

Flashback: Bill and Ted Battle the Grim Reaper by Playing 'Battleship'
The Bill & Ted fan community haven't had it easy over the past couple of decades. The only real content they've gotten to chew on since Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey left theaters in 1991 was the short-lived cartoon series Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventures and a disastrous live-action Fox show that aired seven episodes in the summer of 1992 before being forever banished from the memory banks of every single person on the planet.

Making matters worse, series stars Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter pop up in the press every few months and

Bill and Ted 3 Is Closer Than Ever to Finally Happening

Bill and Ted 3 Is Closer Than Ever to Finally Happening
It's a good day for fans of Bill and Ted. Earlier today we learned of a reunion where Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter, along with creators Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson talked about the original plans for Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. Now, the crew admit that they're only months away from hopefully getting Bill & Ted 3 officially off the ground. We've been getting teased about the third installment in the Bill and Ted franchise for years now, but it really feels like it's only a matter of time before the cameras start rolling on Bill and Ted 3.

Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter have kept in touch over the years, even working together on Winter's 2015 documentary, Deep Web, which Reeves narrated. As the idea for Bill and Ted 3, the duo explain that Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon approached them back in 2007 about reprising their iconic roles. However, Reeves notes that there's

Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter Discuss Bill & Ted 3 Which is Actually Close To Happening!

For years Bill & Ted fans have been hearing about a third Bill & Ted movie called Bill & Ted Face The Music. Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are both on board to make the movie if a studio ever decides to pull the trigger on it. There's already a script that was written by Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson, the story of which follows the older middle-aged Bill S. Preston, Esq. and Ted 'Theodore' Logan back in time to interact with their past selves and George Carlin’s character Rufus, "using footage from 1989’s Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure." It finds our heroes "still struggling to complete the great work of their life."

Now Reeves, Winter, Matheson, and Solomon have recently reunited for an interview with Entertainment Weekly to talk about Bill and Ted 3 and the long process they have gone through in trying to get it into production. Solomon says:

William Sadler is Ready To Reprise His Role of Death in Bill And Ted 3

Over the past few years, we've been hearing a lot about Bill and Ted 3. As a huge fan of the first two films, I really hope that this new sequel happens. I enjoyed everything that I've heard about it so far and Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are both on board to make the film if it happens.

Director Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) and writer Ed Solomon are pushing for the movie to happen. The film is said to be titled Bill & Ted Face The Music, and when previously talking about the film, Solomon said the story will send the older middle-aged Bill S. Preston, Esq. and Ted “Theodore” Logan back in time to interact with their past selves and George Carlin’s character Rufus, "using footage from 1989’s Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure." Solomon went on to reveal:

How Will Bill and Ted 3 Fix Its Rufus Problem?

How Will Bill and Ted 3 Fix Its Rufus Problem?
Fans have been waiting over 25 years for Bill & Ted 3 to come to fruition, but over the last decade, one big question has remained: what will happen to Rufus? Rufus, the trench-coat wearing mentor to Bill S. Preston Esquire (Alex Winter) and Ted Theodore Logan (Keanu Reeves), was played by the iconic comedian George Carlin, who sadly passed away in 2008 at the age of 71, from heart failure. Ed Solomon revealed in a new interview that this new movie, entitled Bill & Ted Face the Music, will in fact address the absence of Rufus, while also paying homage to this beloved character.

"George Carlin is so deeply missed by all of us. There is a... not just an homage to him, it's more than that. His absence is a part of the whole movie."

We've known for quite some time that this story will be set in present day, featuring Bill and Ted as adults in their 50s,

Bill and Ted 3 Script Is Done, So What's Taking So Long?

Bill and Ted 3 Script Is Done, So What's Taking So Long?
The script for Bill & Ted 3 is done. Screenwriter Ed Solomon, who co-created and wrote the original movies with Chris Matheson, has been working on the long-awaited sequel for a very long time. Now, in a new update on the project, he reveals that the creative team, which consists of the screenwriting duo, as well as original stars Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter, has a script they're very happy with. Here's what he had to say about it in a recent interview with Digital Spy.

"We have a script that we really are proud of, that we worked very hard on, that we've done many iterations of, and we did it on spec, meaning we spent years working on it because we wanted to get it right, creatively. This is not, 'Hey let's all cash-in on the Bill & Ted thing for money,' this is the opposite. This is, 'We love these characters,

In case that didn’t make it abundantly clear, this reimagining of the original 1988 film is just as nasty (in the best way) if not more so. And with the premiere less than two months away, Paramount Network (fka Spike TV) has blessed us with a red-band trailer that’s — wait for it — to die for.

Paul Scheer Dissects ‘The Last Jedi,’ The Year in Pop Culture, and How ‘The Disaster Artist’ Got Made —Turn It On Podcast
For artists and creative types, despite all the year’s dark elements, there was reason for hope in 2017. Comedian Paul Scheer noted that although it was a tough year for many different reasons, there was plenty of amazing work to celebrate coming out of entertainment. He believes this historical moment will, at the very least, “breed good art.”

“Would I have preferred none of this to happen? Sure. But we’re in it, we’re dealing with it, and I feel there’s a passion coming out,” said Scheer, who noted that he is checking into this from the perspective of a straight, white male in this world. “This year, more than most, I’ve been so creatively excited by what I’ve seen — whether it’s Taika doing ‘Thor’ or the March on Washington.”

Catalog From The Beyond: Snow White: A Tale Of Terror (1997)

  • DailyDead
By now I’m sure you know the formula for this column. I introduce one of our beloved horror icons as a means to steer you toward one of their lesser-known works. Nothing too complicated, but I’ve found it works. This time around, however, I worry that my usual spiel will bury the lede, as I’ve made a profound discovery in the made-for-tv horror fairy tale Snow White: A Tale of Terror, featuring Sigourney Weaver. This movie, ladies and gentlemen, is the silliest horror movie ever made.

I know what you’re thinking: But Bryan, how could you make such a claim in a world where movies like Sleepaway Camp II, Blood Diner, or any variety of wacky ’80s slasher movies exist? You raise a fair point, good reader, but the difference is that they were actively trying to be silly while Snow White: A Tale of Terror

11 Rounds of The Orville vs. Star Trek: Discovery: Who Does It Better?

It was a win-win situation this fall with two brand new but very different sci-fi space adventures.

In this corner, we have The Orville, weighing in as a fly-weight with creator and star Seth MacFarlane's fan-boy enthusiasm of space shows and pop culture. The show was predicted to be a farcical send-up in the style Galaxy Quest with the cheap one-two combo of poop jokes and juvenile pranks.

And in this corner, we have the highly anticipated legacy champion, Star Trek: Discovery, the first of its lineage on TV in over a decade, sporting the banner of diversity and scars of controversy that pushed back its premiere over nine months.

So, taken point-by-point, with which crew would you rather take a journey through the stars?

Black Mirror season 4: USS Callister review

Ryan Lambie Dec 29, 2017

With an excellent cast and great comic moments underscored by classic Black Mirror darkness, USS Callister is a triumph. Spoilers ahead...

This review contains spoilers.

4.1 USS Callister

Within the framework of a Twilight Zone-like anthology show, Black Mirror's demonstrated a pleasingly elastic style, running the gamut from futuristic comedy (series three opener, Nosedive) to  poignant drama (series two's Be Right Back) to outright horror (White Bear, this year's gritty Metalhead). USS Callister dips into space opera territory for the first time in Black Mirror's seven-year history, with Charlie Brooker and William Bridges' plot gently poking fun at the staples of Star Trek, while serving up a thoroughly satisfying tale about cruelty and despotism.

New ‘Black Mirror’ Season 4 Trailer Reveals the Trek-Inspired “U.S.S. Callister”

In the slow march to Black Mirror Season 4 (which Netflix still hasn't given a premiere date), one of the more anticipated episodes has finally gotten its own trailer. Star Trek's influence on the theme of "U.S.S. Callister" is clear, but while the trailer gives us a glimpse of it, we don't yet have a hint of what severely messed up twist it's going to have. It looks almost like a Galaxy Quest-ish satire, and those effects are hilariously retro. But somehow, I feel like Jesse Plemons will be at the heart of …

Galaxy Quest screenwriter discusses plans for Amazon’s TV series

Back in August it was reported that Amazon had revived its plans for a TV adaptation of the cult 1999 comedy Galaxy Quest, tapping writer, actor and comedian Paul Scheer (The Disaster Artist) to replace the film’s writer Robert Gordon on the script. And now, speaking to SlashFilm, Scheer has revealed some info on his plans for the show, stating that it will follow both the original characters from the movie as well as a new group of characters, with their two stories merging as the season progresses.

“The thing I keep on saying about it, without giving too much away – because it’s going to be so long before people get to see it, I don’t want people to get too burnt out on me telling you what it’s about before it gets to that point – but for me, it was really important to do service to

Paul Scheer Gives Update on ‘Galaxy Quest’ TV Show

It’s been a few months since we heard that Amazon would finally be rebooting ‘Galaxy Quest‘ as a television series for a new generation. Paul Scheer (‘The League‘) was tapped to write the reimagining of the original movie, which featured a group of washed up tv actors being swept up into a real life adventure that mirrors their show. At the time of the announcement, it was unclear how the series would move forward. After all, there had been several unsuccessful attempts at bringing the cast back together for some sort of follow-up in the past. Suffice it to say, details were sparse with a series of crucial questions were left about what this show would end up being.

Recently, Scheer spoke out about writing the project, providing more details about the direction of the new show. Chatting with Slashfilm to promote ‘The Disaster Artist‘, Scheer gave a very

What We Know about the Galaxy Quest TV Series

Galaxy Quest was a sci-fi movie with extensive comic elements that came out in 1999. For those who are unfamiliar with the movie, it was centered around the cast of a fictional TV show of the same name that had managed to reach cult status but nonetheless came to a conclusion. Unfortunately for them, a group of aliens mistook their in-show adventures for documentations of their real experiences, with the result that they are drawn into an interstellar conflict for which they are wholly unprepared. By this point, it should come as no surprise to learn that Galaxy Quest was

It really shouldn't have worked; a comedy about a group of washed-up actors from a cult sci-fi TV series who became involved in an actual space adventure when a group of aliens mistook their TV show for real events. There were a million ways which Galaxy Quest could have gone wrong, but miraculously, the film found success with its equal measures of comedy, action, and heart, not to mention... Read More...

Amazon’s ‘Galaxy Quest’ Will Mix Old and New Casts; Explore Changes in Fandom

The oft-overlooked sci-fi comedy gem Galaxy Quest gets a lot right; a whip-smart take on science fiction tropes and nerd fandoms and a genuinely fun sci-fi adventure tale beyond the meta-commentary, but above all, the film absolutely nailed the casting. So naturally, if anybody's going to pick up the Galaxy Quest mantle, it would be foolish not to bring back as many actors as possible. Dean Parisot's 1999 cult classic lined up Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Sam Rockwell, Tony Shalhoub, Tim Allen, and Daryll Mitchell as the ensemble cast of a beloved sci-…
