Star Trek 4 Contract Negotiations Fail

After a week of good news for Trekkies, hearing that Sir Patrick Stewart is returning to his role of Jean-Luc Picard in a brand new series based around the character, not so good news was bound to follow, to balance out the ying and yang of the universe. Both Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth were in talks to reprise their roles … Read More

Ready Player One’s Marketing Campaign Upsets the Internet

Ready Player One, as I’ve said numerous times, is one of my favourite novels. It’s author, Ernest Cline, is a total nerd that I really look up to. I love both of his books, Ready Player One and Armada and cannot wait until he releases more. When it was announced that a film was on the way from Steven Spielberg, I was pretty … Read More

Secret Cinema Presents Blade Runner

If you don’t know about Secret Cinema or do but aren’t quite sure what they are all about allow me to educate you into an awesome world of theatrical immersion. Secret Cinema specialise … Read More

A Thwipping Good Reboot

Spiderman has always been my favourite super hero ever since I started collecting comic books as a kid. It’s ironic really as I can’t really stomach spiders although in a house full of wimps it does fall to me to relocate wayward travellers of the eight legged variety. I don’t know what it is about the hero as it’s definitely … Read More

Suicide Squad Review

*Will most definitely spoil points of the film* I will start by admitting I am a Marvel man. Always have been and always will be. This isn’t just where the films are concerned, I’m an avid collector of comic books too. Sure I take a sprinkle of what  DC has to offer, in the form of Jason Todd’s Red Hood and Nightwing … Read More

Ready Player One Will Feature Little of Spielberg’s Films

Ready Player One is one of my favourite books of all time. It follows a nerdy kid in a world that has really gone down the toilet. Housing is hard to come by, amenities are scarce and fossil fuel has pretty much all been used up. It’s a bleak world, made brighter by the fact everyone escapes into a virtual … Read More

Captain America Civil War Review

A Marvel film set in the already well established Marvel Universe is always going to be one that draws people to the box office and makes a lot of money. We have all come to accept that. Some scoffed when Guardians of the Galaxy (a lesser known Marvel property at the time) was announced and yet it proved an amazing hit. … Read More

Mads Mikkelsen Reveals Rogue One Character Details

  Even through filming wrapped at the end of last year and the feature is well into post production, we are still at a loss as to who really plays who in the next Star Wars instalment, Star Wars: Rogue One. One such actor is Mads Mikkelsen who is best known for starring in the leading role in Hannibal. In … Read More

Neill Blomkamp to Bring Back Newt

The Director responsible for District 9 has decided that with his next Alien film (a sequel to Aliens) he will right the wrongs of Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection, almost ignoring them completely. His still in development feature has gotten a social media boost recently thanks to the reveal of a design concept of a grown up Rebecca ‘Newt’ Jorden. The concept … Read More

Pearl Mackie, the New Doctor Who Companion

I can take or leave new companions to be honest. They create a good hopping on point for new viewers as naturally it involves the Doctor reintroducing the universe and having to re-explain the big bad races he comes across and how the TARDIS works but to a viewer of some years the repetition could start to wear thin; and who … Read More

Iron Man Will Be in Spiderman: Homecoming

Earlier in the month Kevin Feige, the big cheese at Marvel studios, hinted that it would be very likely that characters from the Marvel Universe would bleed into the standalone Spiderman film coming in 2017 because of the new deal brokered with Sony. With new actor Tom Holland and Sony’s new Spiderman finally returning home in his Marvel debut in Captain … Read More

Blade Runner 2 Release Moved Closer

The original release window for Blade Runner 2 raised a few eyebrows. It was set for early January 2018 which would have made Star Wars Episode VIII it’s box office rival, which would not have been a smart move for any film, even for a sequel to a movie as well loved and as anticipated as this. Thankfully the studio … Read More
