Edward James Olmos says Shane Black’s The Predator “is gonna be funny”

While doing the press rounds for Pixar’s Coco, Edward James Olmos has backed up Thomas Jane’s comments from a couple of weeks ago by stating that Shane Black’s The Predator ‘is gonna be funny’.

The Blade Runner and Battlestar Gallactica veteran was talking to Cinema Blend when he spilled the following details:

“That’s an interesting story. I haven’t seen any of it, but it’s gonna be funny. The kids in the thing. Yeah, the humor. Huge. Huge. I mean I was in shock, because, you know this is a really intense franchise, and it still is. Don’t get me wrong. You’re gonna be inside of it. But the characters are… what he did — Shane is an incredibly gifted writer, and he’s a great director, and so he ended up getting an incredible ensemble, and when I reached it they had already

Star Wars’ chequered past in live-action TV

Rob Leane Nov 13, 2017

A live-action Star Wars TV series is on the way! Let’s look back at Underworld, the last attempt to get one made...

Last Friday was an exiting day for Star Wars fans, with UK followers of that galaxy far, far away waking up to some massive news. While we were sleeping, Disney chief Bob Iger announced a new trilogy of Star Wars films and a live-action Star Wars TV series.

Iger’s announcement included some details about the new movie trilogy (The Last Jedi’s Rian Johnson is helming it, with the story being totally separate to the Skywalker-centric ‘episode’ films), but the TV project was left utterly mysterious. All the fans were told is that the live-action TV series will be released

‘The Flash’ Ep Dishes on Iris' Bachelorette-Gone-Wrong in ‘Girls Night Out’ -- Plus, New Crossover Scoop!

‘The Flash’ Ep Dishes on Iris' Bachelorette-Gone-Wrong in ‘Girls Night Out’ --  Plus, New Crossover Scoop!
The ladies of Team Flash are hitting the town in Tuesday’s all-new episode of The Flash! But, like most nights in Central City, things don’t quite go as planned.

“We wanted to do something we’ve never done before,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told reporters of the ep last week. “We started with the concept of, wouldn’t it be really funny if Barry goes for a bachelor party with the guys and [Iris] goes for a bachelorette party with the girls, and the guys end up having the worst night ever, and the girls wind up saving the city. That was where the episode started from, and that’s where it ended up.”

8 ways The Twilight Zone influenced modern TV and film

Louisa Mellor Nov 12, 2017

The Twilight Zone casts a long shadow over today’s film and TV. We salute the legacy left by Rod Serling’s seminal series…

“Damn near immortal” is how Stephen King described The Twilight Zone in his 1981 study of creepy fiction Danse Macabre, and who could argue with that. Like any decent horror monster, Rod Serling’s 1960s anthology series keeps coming back from the grave. Only last week it was announced that CBS is planning to resurrect its award-winning show once again. The new series will be the latest of several revivals over the decades, including an upcoming stage production set to enjoy its world premiere at London’s Almeida Theatre this December.

First-look preview of Battlestar Galactica vs. Battlestar Galactica #1

Dynamite Entertainment is set to bring the crews of the two Battlestar Galactica shows together this January with the new series Battlestar Galactica vs. Battlestar Galactica, and we’ve got an early first-look preview of the debut issue for you here; check it out…

At last! The epic story you’ve been dying to see is here, a galaxy and timeline-spanning saga bringing the two very different (and yet so very much alike) crews of the Battlestar Galacticas series together. But don’t expect this historic meeting of heroes to be friendly: they have no idea why they have been brought together, or what the result of this unprecedented meeting is. And it starts here as the legendary Commander Cain and the crew of the Pegasus are revealed to be alive, and have encountered an individual they never thought they would meet: the last Cylon. All this has happened before,

Thomas Jane discusses the plot of The Predator

The story of Shane Black’s upcoming The Predator has been pretty short on details up to this point. All we really know about the film is that it takes place in a suburban area as a group of soldiers try to take down the new Predator. Now, however, star Thomas Jane (The Expanse) appeared on the Shadow Nation podcast and revealed a lot of details on his and the other soldier’s backstories.

“We play these veterans from like Afghanistan, Iraq war or whatever,” Jane said. “But we’re all fucking crazy so we go to the Va hospital to get our meds. We’re all like shellshocked, Ptsd… soldiers. We’re at the Va hospital and we’re in group therapy and of course, somebody flips out…this is backstory, I don’t think we really see this…somebody flips out and we all get arrested and get

Quantum Leap Movie Script Has Been Written
The 1980s and 1990s are more popular than ever, so it isn't terribly surprising to learn that an iconic series from that era, Quantum Leap, may get a movie reboot. Series creator Donald Bellisario revealed during a Quantum Leap reunion panel at L.A. Comic-Con with series star Scott Bakula, that he has written a script for a Quantum Leap movie that would bring back original series stars Bakula as Dr. Samuel Beckett and Dean Stockwell as Admiral Al Calavicci. Here's what Donald Bellisario had to say in a statement.

"I just finished writing a Quantum Leap feature. I don't know what's going to happen with it, but I did write it. I write things exactly the same way. I just start writing and I let them take me wherever it's going to take me. I'm entertained the same way the audience is. So I just put Scott and Dean [Stockwell] in my head,

Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams episode 6 review: Human Is

Louisa Mellor Oct 30, 2017

In Human Is, Bryan Cranston and Essie Davis star in a story of galactic warfare and a loveless marriage. Spoilers ahead…

This review contains spoilers.

1.6 Human Is

One to please Pkd purists, the latest Electric Dreams episode is this series’ most faithful to its source material yet. Names have been changed, 1950s gender politics have been updated and saucy scenes added, but writer Jessica Mecklenburg tells the original story of a dwindling marriage rejuvenated by an unexpected source.

I say unexpected, a Metamorph from the planet Rexor IV is exactly the sort of thing you’d expect to find in sci-fi. It’s as archetypal as the question posed by this episode, one that, thanks to writers like Philip K. Dick, now feels indivisible

‘Outlander’: Ronald D. Moore Explains Why He Made Fans Wait to See Jamie and Claire’s Reunion

‘Outlander’: Ronald D. Moore Explains Why He Made Fans Wait to See Jamie and Claire’s Reunion
[Editor’s note: Spoilers for “Outlander” Season 3 Episode 6, “A. Malcolm,” follow.]

If you thought it was a little excessive, for “Outlander” to wait until nearly halfway through the third season to bring together its star-crossed stars, know that showrunner Ronald D. Moore deemed it necessary.

“I was firm on that,” he told IndieWire about denying fans the reunion of Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe). “I was like, ‘I want them to want it. I’m happy that they’re going a little crazy. Let’s make them earn it, getting them back together.'”

His reasons, though, weren’t based in sadism — instead, the veteran showrunner wanted to stay loyal to the novels he was adapting for the Starz drama. Thus, following Claire’s return to her own time at the end of Season 2, the couple at the center of the Starz drama would spend 20 years living separate lives in their original time periods.

Should Star Trek use the F word?

In one of the lighter moments in last week’s episode of Star Trek: Discovery, while working on a way to use Discovery’s spore drive without the tardigrade known as Ripper, Cadet Sylvia Tilly exclaimed, “You guys, this is so fucking cool!” Suddenly realising she was on duty in a military workplace, she immediately apologised, and Lt Paul Stamets reassured her, “It is fucking cool”. It was the first time anyone has ever used ‘the F word’ in canon on Star Trek. Some were amused. Some were horrified.
