J.J. Abrams - Demimonde Series

Whenever J.J. Abrams is behind a new sci-fi series, audiences pay attention. That’s mostly because of his involvement in the ABC series LOST, but more recently, Abrams also turned heads with the series adaptation of Michael Crichton’s 1973 film Westworld, which became a hit for HBO. Now, he’s be returning to the cable network with another intriguing new sci-fi series.

HBO beat out Apple in a bidding war for a new series called Demimonde, the first sci-fi project for television that J.J. Abrams has written himself since Fringe debuted on FOX on 2008. HBO has given the show a straight-to-series order, but what’s this Demimonde series about? Read More »

Castle Rock TV spot

Stephen King himself may not know what’s going on with Castle Rock, Hulu’s new psychological horror series set inside the King canon, but now he can watch this brand new Castle Rock TV spot along with the rest of us and try to figure it out. (I kind of love that mental image: King obsessively searching through a TV spot frame-by-frame, trying to find connections to his own work.) Let’s take a look, shall we?

Cloverfield 4

Who could have predicted that 2008’s hand-held monster movie Cloverfield would spawn a franchise we’d still be talking about 10 years later? 2016’s surprise sort-of-sequel 10 Cloverfield Lane provided our first look at the anthology-like nature of this loose franchise umbrella, and while we wait to see a trailer for God Particle (now possibly titled Cloverfield Station) and learn when and how we’re actually going to see that movie, we have confirmation that Cloverfield 4 not only exists, but that it’s already completed filming. The project is called Overlord, and you can read all we know about it below.

Knights of Ren in The last Jedi

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a very expansive movie, full of multiple characters stretched across multiple storylines. But one set of characters who didn’t make an appearance were the Knights of Ren. These characters, teased in The Force Awakens, had been expected to appear in the highly anticipated sequel, but they were a no-show. Now, director Rian Johnson explains his reasoning for not using The Knights of Ren in The Last Jedi.

jj abrams sci-fi tv series

J.J. Abrams‘ name may be inextricable from the Star Wars franchise now, but it was in TV where the writer/director first found major success. And now, seven years after he last created a TV series, Abrams is making a long-awaited return to the small screen.

But don’t worry, Star Wars fans. As famous as Abrams is for spearheading wildly ambitious and influential series like Felicity, Alias, LOST, and Fringe, he’s just as famous for sticking around for only the pilot before jetting off to his next project. You’ll get your Episode 9 no matter what.

John Williams Will Score ‘Star Wars: Episode 9’

John Williams Will Score Star Wars Episode IX

John Williams, who has provided iconic music for every Star Wars film (save Rogue One, which nonetheless used his themes), is all but confirmed to score Star Wars: Episode 9. You know this, I know this, Williams knows this. A new interview with the master composer has Williams confirming that he would very much like to finish out the new trilogy, and that he made this known to director J.J. Abrams. It’s not a firm confirmation, but we can just go ahead and assume that John Williams will provide the Episode 9 score.

rey and poe romance

There are plenty of delusional Star Wars fans out there, and I like to think that I’m not one of them. But — and don’t judge me — I kind of ship Rey and Poe. Yes, I know they shared barely more than 10 seconds together in Star Wars: The Last Jedi! And yes, those 10 seconds basically consisted of them introducing themselves! But gosh darn it, if they don’t look cute together.

And I’m not the only one who read way too deeply into their brief but flirty exchange. There’s a whole set of delusional Star Wars fans who are secretly hoping for a Rey and Poe romance and their clamoring for a love story has finally made its way to Star Wars: The Last Jedi star Daisy Ridley. But I’m sorry DameRey shippers, she won’t give the answer you were looking for.
