Lost in Space Remake

It’s been over a year since we heard that the classic 1960s sci-fi series Lost in Space was getting a TV remake from Dracula Untold writers Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, but since then we haven’t heard of any progress on the project. But that changes today as the series remake has landed at Netflix, arguably the best place for a series like Lost in Space to go so it doesn’t have to contend with all the rigmarole of network television.

Constantine no smoking

John Constantine is sad; all he wants is a smoke. The rain, however, is not preventing him from lighting up. Restraint comes from the standards & practices department at NBC, which is more powerful than any nicotine patch when it comes to killing off a nicotine habit.

The character, a DC Comics mainstay since his creation by Alan Moore in the mid-’80s, is coming to television via David Goyer and NBC. And despite the fact that Constantine is a serious smoker (such a dedicated smoker, in fact, that lung cancer became a major plot point in his overall story) the network has said “no smoking” to the producers of Constantine. Maybe he can vape?

After the break, pilot director Neil Marshall explains some of the no smoking reasoning. (Note: possible gross spoilers for Hannibal are below, in the form of thumbnail images.) Read More »

Constantine TV trailer

Here’s the first trailer for NBC’s new incarnation of DC’s magician John Constantine, and it looks… pretty good! Scoring Neil Marshall (The Descent, various Game of Thrones episodes) to direct the pilot was a good move, and Matt Ryan looks properly selfish and capable as Constantine. See, while the Keanu Reeves movie directed by Francis Lawrence has its charm, and captured great facets of the DC character, it was still a pretty far cry from the stories that made Hellblazer a must-read series, once upon a time. Will this show do better? Tough to tell at this point, but it definitely gets a few points in its favor. Check out the Constantine TV trailer below. Read More »

Marvel may be running circles around DC in the big-screen franchise department, but the latter is doing quite well for itself on the small screen. One of several DC-based shows in the works right now is Constantine, and it’s moving quickly. The drama got a pilot order from NBC earlier this month, and has now picked up Neil Marshall (The Descent) to helm. More details after the jump.

Over eighty years after its debut on the big screen, the original King Kong may get a sequel. In 2004 an illustrated sequel novel, Kong: King of Skull Island, was published. The story is set a quarter-century after King Kong, and which finds Carl Denham and Jack Driscoll on a trip back to Skull Island, where they find out a lot more about both their one-time charge and the environment that gave birth to him.

Now Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) is rumored to be attached to direct a film based on the book. But, as great as that idea is, based on a statement from his writer/director Axelle Carolyn, who also happens to be married to Marshall, you might not want to get your hopes up yet. Read More »
