bryan fuller star trek discovery

A little over a month ago, Bryan Fuller stepped down as showrunner on CBS’s upcoming Star Trek: Discovery series, resulting in the internet making a sound akin to a balloon slowly deflating. After all, Star Trek has seen its ups and its downs, but surely it would’ve flourished under the watchful eye of the genius behind Hannibal and Pushing Daisies! Without him at the helm, an exclamation point became a question mark. The silver lining was that Fuller would remain on board as an executive producer, allowing him “to remain actively involved albeit not on the day-to-day production level as originally envisioned.”

Well, so much for that. In a new interview, Fuller has essentially confirmed that we won’t be working on Star Trek: Discovery at all.

Escape from New York Prequel

We’re coming up on 10 years of development on the Escape from New York remake that originated at New Line Cinema but now finds itself at 20th Century Fox. Over the years, we’ve seen various talents attached such as writers like Gary Whitta (Book of Eli) and Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down) involved, directors such as Brett Ratner and Breck Eisner once attached, and names like Gerard Butler and Tom Hardy thrown around to play the lead.

As of now, no new talent has come on board since Luther creator Neil Cross was hired last fall, but some new details have emerged on the project that could either be really interesting or extremely frustrating for fans of the original movie. First and foremost, it has been confirmed that the Escape from New York remake is in fact a prequel that will provide some origin details on both Snake Plissken (originally played by Kurt Russell) and the state of the world. However, keep in mind that some of these details might dive into spoiler territory, so continue to read at your own risk. Read More »

assassin's creed clip

The 2016 edition of The Game Awards were held last night (Blizzard’s Overwatch was the big winner, for the record) and 20th Century Fox used this celebration of the best in video games to advertise Assassin’s Creed, their upcoming video game movie adaptation starring Michael Fassbender. This extended clip from the film was preaching to the choir last night, but it’s now arrived online, ready to win the hearts and minds of non-gamers looking for a big movie that will allow them to escape their family for two hours this holiday season.

Godzilla and Monsters Rogue One Easter Eggs

george lucas rogue one

George Lucas is something of an enigma –he’s one of our most fascinating and important living filmmakers while also being a lightning rod for criticism from the people who grew up appreciating his work. It may take a few more decades for pop culture to come to grips with the man who found his feet in the American New Wave, created Star Wars as a passion project, gave birth to the modern blockbuster, and then confounded fandom with his prequel trilogy years later. Like him or not, Lucas has spent over 40 years making the films he wanted to make, for better and worse.

Lucas has all but retired after selling Lucasfilm to Disney for a couple billion dollars, but when the creator of Star Wars decides to pop by to check out the set of your new Star Wars spin-off movie, you should extend him every courtesy. At the very least, you’ll get some fun stories to share.

Westworld Season Finale Clip

The season finale of Westworld is just a couple days away, and soon we’ll get to see how many of the ever-growing list of theories about the show actually turn out to be true. The most recent episode of Westworld already confirmed one major theory that has been kicking around since the season premiere, and the finale will likely confirm or debunk the popular but controversial theory that Jimmi Simpson‘s character William is actually a younger version of Ed Harris‘ character The Man in Black.

While we wait for the 90-minute season season finale to hit HBO on Sunday, series executive producer J.J. Abrams stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night to tease what he calls a “crazy” conclusion to the first season, and he even brought a clip from the finale to hold us over.
