Granted, we’ve only seen the first of three episodes in the “Dune” miniseries. But so far, I’m impressed. Here’s an interview with the director to chew on, while we wait for part two tonight. And feel free to post your impressions and ruminations on the miniseries thus far.
fiziko writes, It seems that Romulans will be involved in the next Star Trek movie. In this article, Rick Berman addresses the presence of Romulans, as well as allusions and rumour-kills about the future of Data and the franchise. Oh my God, they killed the rumors! You bastards!
Recently rebranded “The National Network” to coincide with their acquisition of all WWF programming (go figure), TNN has acquired the rights to three Star Trek series (all but the ’60s original). Also in this report: a quick summary of all which is known about the next Trek movie.
I like “Futurama,” and last year’s ratings suggest that a few of you do as well. Good luck actually watching it, though; it’s that darned football season getting in the way. IGN reports on the anticipated future schedule (hint: still more repeats), why it’s all so messed-up, and how to fix it (hint: FIND A DECENT TIME SLOT).
No one is surprised by this, but I have to list it for completeness: Brent Spiner is now signed for the next Trek movie. Read all about it. There were rumors during the production of ST:Insurrection that Spiner wanted his character, Data, to be killed during the movie, as he reportedly believed he was getting too old to play an ageless android. Let’s officially start the rumors up again. :-)
m0rpheus writes, There’s a new trailer out for the Final Fantasy movie here. You can view it in three diffrent resolutions. It seems to be more focused on the plot this time, as opposed to the cg last time. Now if only they’d use something other than QuickTime, so us Linux users could watch…
Like they’d let the year 2001 pass without a re-release of the Stanley Kubrick classic.
Those of us in the States might not be able to see it for a while, though; the current re-release schedule only lists London (1/1/2001) and Berlin (2/18/2001) explicitly. All things being equal, though, I think Warner would be foolish to not schedule something next year.
Savvy readers will notice that, except for today, there have been no articles posted in the past week. That’s because I’m trying to work a (really bleeepy) day job, and I simply don’t have time to do all the updates myself.
At long last, Lucasfilm has finally realized that fan-produced films aren’t at all omens of the Dark Side. Instead of suing them out of existence, there’s now an official home for ’em. Internet film distributor AtomFilms will handle the technical side of distributing fun farces like the Cops-inspired Troops and, if we’re lucky, even “Dark Redemption.” The site, when it opens up, will be over here.
