Orphan-Black-Season-1-Recap

There hasn’t been any good news for the Clone Club lately. Word has it that the Orphan Black creators totally spoiled next season’s finale. Nice going, creators. And fans are still hurting inside over star Tatiana Maslany’s Emmys snub. Or, that is to say, her second snub in two years. Tracking the footsteps of a pretty respectable season 2, it goes without saying that the show and its loyal followers are due for some good news. As if having a television sci-fi drama about a top secret clone factory wasn’t cool enough, things are about to get about ten times nerdier. If comics group IDW have their way, we’ll all soon be rolling up Sarah Manning and her “sestras” and sticking them in our back pockets! Sound like good news to you? (more…)

Guillermo del Toro‘s a busy man these days; his new series The Strain has been enjoying a lot of positive feedback on FX, and he’s currently filmming his next big screen effort Crimson Peak. But because fans have long memories, we also want any and all details on stuff that might be developing, no matter how early, about upcoming work, like the sequel to del Toro’s 2013 hit Pacific Rim. Pacific Rim 2 was a surprise announcement last month, because a lot of the discussion about it till then was geared more towards the speculative.

Attack-The-Block-Boyega

It starts now! Well, not now exactly. But later! San Diego Comic Con launches with preview night tonight, which means the next four days will be non-stop nerd news.

Would it be a campy look-back and laugh, or would it be too serious, just another gritty reboot? Now that word has leaked that none other than acting heavy wieght Sir Anthony Hopkins will have a starring role in the series, my concerns are beginning to dwindle.  (more…)
