‘Minority Report’ TV Series Adds New Lead

Minority Report cast

Casting twins is always tricky; is it better to use two similar actors, or actual twins, or one actor to play both roles? We’ve seen it done via all these methods, and while it was once very difficult to have one actor convincingly play twins (see all the effort put into Jeremy Irons’ performance for Dead Ringers), digital effects make it a lot easier, on the technical side at least, for one actor to do the job.

The Minority Report TV series originally cast one actor, Stark Sands (above, right), to play precog twins Dash and Arthur. But there’s been a shakeup to the Minority Report cast, or rather an addition. Nick Zano (One Big Happy) has signed on to play Arthur. Read More »

Real Fake History Battle of Endor

Some film franchises and television shows have a large enough mythology and universe that entire encyclopedias (or more commonly Wikis today) have been written in an attempt to chronicle every facet of the world that some of our favorite stories unfold. Star Wars, Star Trek, Game of Thrones, Lost and more all have expansive and rich histories.

Now a new web series from Machinima is diving into some of the milestone moments of our favorite films and TV shows with Real Fake History. Created in the style of a History Channel show or Ken Burns documentary, these documentary shorts examine the fictional wars, events and stories of films and television. The first episode has just gone live taking a look at the pivotal Battle of Endor, the fight which brought down the Empire, in Return of the Jedi.

Terminator Genisys

It’s a given that the time-hopping plot of Terminator Genisys will involve some twists and turns. But we were surprised and disappointed to see the marketing so eagerly reveal what should’ve been a massive spoiler for the story. Turns out, director Alan Taylor was none too pleased about that choice either.

In a new interview, Taylor admits he fought against the big reveal, even if he kind of understands why the studio did it. Read the Terminator Genisys spoiler comments after the jump.  Read More »
