  • Doctor Who: Shocking lack of announcement over rumours…

    When Jodie Whittaker was announced and then debuted as the Thirteen Doctor, there was a lot of media and fan attention at the first female incarnation of the famous time-traveller. Some of it was positive, some negative. The negative contingent was much smaller than the more reasonable ‘Let’s see...
  • Will ‘Zombieland 2’ double-tap into undead success?

    Zombieland (released in 2009) was a comedy timed to simultaneously  lampoon and celebrate the amount of undead staggering around, but – ten years later – the zombie genre shows no sign of dying off any time soon. The Walking Dead (or the tv version, at least) is still in...
  • RIP: Rutger Hauer (actor, wolf, warrior, replicant)…

    “I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die…” It was announced today that veteran actor Rutger...
  • SDCC: HBO’s WWIII goes WWII and beyond…

    The first season of Jonathan Nolan’s Westworld for HBO was as much a masterclass in misdirection as it was an examination of what it is to be human or robot. The second season built on those ideas, but its multiple timelines and skewed chronology  were less effective this time...
  • SDCC: Engage! ‘Picard’ trailer proves past is prologue…

    There’s been a resurgence in Star Trek over the last year or so and though you can’t please everyone all the time, the line-up of projects (the current Discovery, the upcoming animated Lower Decks and the character-driven Picard) undoubtedly has a diverse enough tone to attract a wide audience....
  • SDCC: Russo Brothers’ AGBO cherry-picks new projects…

    Being the directors of the film which is nanoseconds away form being the most successful of all time (Avengers: Endgame for those of you hiding under a rock) gives you a certain amount of clout and the ability to quick and choose what your next projects will be. The...
  • SDCC: Brandon Routh to return as screen Superman…

    When Bryan Singer cast Brandon Routh as the ‘Last Son of Krypton’ for 2006’s Superman Returns, it was perhaps the one thing that film got entirely right. In a production that otherwise sought to mine some of the goodwill and continuity of the Christopher Reeve / Richard Donner era,...
  • Japan’s Kyoto Animation – arson attack leaves 33 dead…

    Local Kyoto authorities and news-services have reported that an unidentified male in his 40s entered the three-storey premises of respected studio Kyoto Animation (KyoAni) early Thursday morning local time and after shouting ‘Drop Dead’ several times, deliberately set fires with gasoline and ignited them. The fire – one of...
  • ‘Bando’ on the run? : ‘Busan’ sequel takes zombies to ‘Peninsula’…

    Most horror fans will attest to the fact that 2016’s Train to Busan (directed by Yeong Sang-ho) was one of the best and – ironically – ‘fresh’ zombie movies to come out in a long while. None of the shuffling, shambling cadavers of The Walking Dead here, but fast-moving,...
