Roberto Orci Enters Negotiations to Direct ‘Trek III’; Internet Has Already Sacrificed Three Babies In Order to Stop It

- 05-09-14Film Posted by Jacob Knight


Remember when we earnestly rejoicing when it sounded like Joe Cornish might be behind the lens for the third Star Trek movie? Ah, the good ol’ days of…two months ago?

Then, just a few weeks ago, it was reported that writer/producer Roberto Orci was lobbying for the director’s chair for the as-of-yet untitled, Abrams-less installment. Today, Deadline is reporting that Orci has entered negotiations with Skydance Productions and Paramount to helm the film and is the frontrunner for the position.

Quoth Gary ‘Jonesy’ Jones: “I’m filing this in the “Who Gives A Shit” section of my Memory Warehouse.”


FOX Cancels ‘Almost Human’ – Why? Because FOX Has No Fraking Clue When it Comes to Sci-Fi

- 04-30-14TV Posted by Mark Poynter


As J.J. Abrams was announcing the new cast for Star Wars Episode VII yesterday, FOX was quietly canceling Abrams sci-fi police procedural show Almost Human starring Karl Urban and Michael Ealy. Many people won’t be surprised. The show never really got off the ground in the ratings department, but do you know why? (more…)

Karl Urban Hints at Continuing Possibility of ‘Dredd’ Sequel

- 02-25-14Comics, Film Posted by Jason McAnelly


One of the most underrated films in the last few years, Pete Travis’ incarnation of Dredd, while it didn’t do so hot at the box office, has risen to gather quite the fan following. Petitions abound for a sequel, the people cry out for more and even Karl Urban, the Dredd-man himself, has expressed how intensely he wants another film of the franchise to be made. Things have been up and down, but it may be that the powers-that-be are reconsidering. (more…)

- 10-29-13TV Posted by Brent Cook


I’ve been skeptical of the new J.J. Abrams and J.H. Wyman show, Almost Human, since I first started seeing commercials for it. I mean, how is this thing not titled I, Robot: The Television Series? Fortunately, for those who would like to decide ahead of time whether or not they will give the show a shot, the first seven minutes have been released. (more…)

Latest ‘Riddick’ International Television Spot: Now We Play for Blood

- 08-23-13Film Posted by Mark Poynter


With just two weeks to go to the September 6th premiere of Vin Diesel‘s latest portrayal of our favorite Furyan in Riddick, the increased marketing on television and the Internet will be bringing us some new glimpses of what we can expect in the movie. This time around, it’s the new international television spot that wastes no time in setting the tone of the movie.

As Riddick said in the debut trailer, “This ain’t nothing new,” and that’s exactly the way we like it. It’s all back to and about Riddick versus all the monsters, bounty hunters, assassins, and anything else a hostile planet can throw at him with plenty of hard-hitting action.


The BastardCast vs. Johnny Depp, the New Doctor, and Shark… Weak

- 08-08-13Featured Posted by Team Bastard


This time on The BastardCast, Jeremy, Jason, and habitual guest Matthew Jackson discuss the latest Batman casting rumors (and Jason’s desperate desire to be Robin), why Johnny Depp should care a little more and suck a little less, and why Peter Capaldi will make a better Doctor Who than a marzipan dildo.

Also on the show: Boba Fett’s new reality TV show, why The Flash sounds like a kinder, fast moving version of Dexter, how DC Entertainment and the ani-Maniacs over at Warner Bros. need to grow a pair and not screw the Flash TV show up, and visual confirmation that Gustavo Fring is alive, well, and still making dope-ass chicken fingers in New Jersey.

Do you need more? Apparently, so did Bruce Willis, because Sly Stallone has taken to twitter in a manly way to possibly diss his former co-star while also announcing that Harrison Ford is entering The Stallone Zone to star in Expendables 3: Rise of the Hernia Sling.

Still not enough? Alright, alright, Harrison Ford also lays out his idea of an acceptable Indiana Jones swan song, Karl Urban gets an offer from one of the boys that he will surely refuse after urging the Star Trek creative team to embrace exploration, and George Lucas‘ dirty little secret about also being Michael McDonald is revealed thanks to “The Butter Song”.

Wanna See a ‘Dredd’ Sequel? Lend Your Voice to the Cause

- 07-25-13Comics, Film Posted by Jason McAnelly


Back in 2012, writer-producer Alex Garland brought us a new, truer to the story version of Judge Dredd with the movie Dredd.  And while many found it to be an excellent if not outstanding film, it didn’t seem to impress the studios enough to get funding for a sequel.  Both Garland and Karl Urban (the Judge himself) are loyal fans of the comic and really want to see this happen, but haven’t been having too much luck with it.  So they’re trying a new tactic to get studios to notice – they’re bringing the fans in on it.

No, it’s not a Kickstarter campaign.  It’s a petition that you can sign online to let your voice be heard that you want to see another Dredd flick.  They also have a Facebook page dedicated to showing support, so you can head over and “like” that one if you so choose.  I’m not sure how well this will affect their chances of going on to Dredd II, but it sure as hell can’t hurt.

New TV Spot For ‘Riddick’ Features Riddick Being Very Riddick

- 07-05-13Film Posted by Jeremy R! Hudson


If you’re a fan of actor/director/car enthusiast Vin Diesel on Facebook you might have noticed something recently. That something being the first TV spot for the forthcoming Riddick threequel aptly titled Riddick. Yes everyone’s favorite muscle-shirted see’n in the dark anti-hero is back to punch space things in the face all over again in this third (and seemingly unconnected to the previous movie) movie.

Admittedly, I have only the vaguest of recollections on how the second one ended and that seems to be more than the script writers did. Riddick looks a hell of a lot more like a sequel to Pitch Black than Chronicles of Riddick, and that’s perfectly fine since if this TV spot can be believed the movie actually looks like mindless (violent) fun.

Vin Diesel’s ‘Riddick’ Gets a New Poster – I Call It: “Blue Steel”

- 07-01-13Film Posted by Mark Poynter


There’s a new poster for Vin Diesel‘s Riddick making the rounds on the Internet.The look and style of the poster boosts my hope that this film returns the franchise to its Pitch Black roots and leaves the space opera for J.J. Abrams and crew. As a Riddick fan, I just want him doing those things he does best, much like a short Canadian Superhero with claws. Take those characters out of their milieu and you’re asking for trouble at the box office.

In the film, the infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he’s encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty. The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won’t leave the planet without Riddick’s head as their trophy.

Riddick opens on September 6th, starring Vin Diesel, Karl Urban, Jordi Molla, Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff, Bokeem Woodbine, Dave Bautista, Conrad Pla, Raoul Trujillo, Nolan Funk and Keri Hilson.

Will you be in a theater seat that weekend?
