It’s Friday so that often means previews for new Syfy shows. Well, if you’re a fan of Syfy series like Defiance and Warehouse 13, you’re in luck, because today is no exception.
Firstly, Defiance is all-new; An old war buddy of Nolan’s comes to town chasing after an arms dealer, who quickly becomes a dangerous threat to the town. You can watch a sneak peek, as well as a behind-the-scenes clip of the the VFX.
Next, check out the sneak peek for a new Warehouse 13, as well as a best-lines clip from last week. It’s all to be found right after the break. So, what are you waiting for?
Loof for Defiance and Warehouse 13 on Mondays starting at 9/8C on Syfy.
Yes, they made another Riddick movie. And yes, it looks pretty good. Yes, we’re kinda surprised too. And yes, we like Vin Diesel. Sue us.
Anyway, there’s a new trailer and poster for Riddick, the fourth film in the Chronicles of Riddick trilogy. We don’t have a lot to say about the trailer except that it showcases pretty well why this character is still popular enough to warrant a new movie.
In this one “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.”
Check out the new trailer and poster after the break. Look for Riddick in theaters on September 6.
It should be no surprise that we support Sci-Fi around here. Even when it’s spelled Syfy. Regardless of how you spell it, a cool syfy show is a cool sci-fi show.
Two of these cool shows are Warehouse 13 and Defiance, which has just been renewed for a second season. Both air on Monday nights on Syfy and we’ve got preview for Monday’s new episodes to share with you today.
First off, during an all-new Defiance, Amanda & Nolan take a transport across the badlands to transport a prisoner. Of course, things don’t go as planned. Shocking, right?
Then on Warehouse 13, it’s a black-and-white, noir episode with guest stars Missi Pyle and Enrico Colantoni. Those crazy kids from Galaxy Quest back together again. Good times indeed.
It all start Monday at 9/8C on Syfy with Defiance followed by Warehouse 13. Check out all the previews after the break.
In space, people can hear you scream. That’s especially true if the “you” in this scenario is Sandra Bullock and you’re with George Clooney in space and your shuttle has just been destroyed. Yeah, that would suck.
Fortunately, it’s just a movie. . . for now. Said movie in question is Gravity, director Alfonso Curon’s followup to Children of Men. Some footage screened for folks at CinemaCon recently, and now it’s being released for all.
Check it out after the break. Look for Gravity to arrive in theaters on October 4.
When we need a good laugh around the office, or at home, we often watch one of two movies: Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz. Both of these are highly amusing and also filled with action, great characters, extensive pop-culture references and excellent performances. Did we mention they’re also damn funny? They are.
So, when the team behind those two movies gets together to make a new one, we get very happy. The new one in question is The World’s End, directed by Edgar Wright and starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine and Rosamund Pike, it’s the the story of childhood friends who come together after 20 years to stage an epic pub crawl.
Of course, things do not go quite as planned. And thank goodness for that.
Check out the trailer after the break. Look for The World’s End to hit the U.S. on August 29th.
Of all the military sci-fi novels out there yet to be made into movies, I’ve always wanted to see an adaptation of Joe Haldeman’s The Forever War. I would also like to see John Scalzi’s Old Man’s War made into a movie or heck, even another try at taking Robert A. Heinlein’s Starship Troopers to the big screen.
That said, in spite of Orson Scott Card’s ridiculous personal opinions, his Ender’s Game is also a pretty great sci-fi novel it its own right, so a big screen adaptation of it is still a welcome development. That’s just what Summit Entertainment has done and to kick things off they’ve released the first trailer for the movie.
In it we get our first real look at Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy, complex and conflicted boy who turns out to be a military genius, and the rest of the supporting cast including Harrison Ford as Colonel Hyrum Graff and Ben Kinsley as Mazer Rackham. Truth be told, this looks pretty good and I look forward to seeing more.
Check out the trailer after the jump. Look for Ender’s Game in theaters on November 1.
Today has already seen a couple new trailers arrive. We’ve always found that more trailers get relased on a Tuesday than a Monday. But heck, maybe things are changing? Or, Warner Bros. just can’t contain this particular one any longer.
The one in question is the latest for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim which, to say the least, looks pretty darn exciting. We say that in large part due to its premise: Monsters vs. Giant Robots. Well, not robots exactly, more like mech. Still, it’s pretty darn cool.
This particular trailer was first seen at WonderCon last month, but now it’s available for all. That doesn’t mean it’s any less awesome. In fact, seeing it again now we’re reminded of how much we’re really looking forward to this one.
Check out the trailer after rthe break. Look for Pacific Rim in theaters on July 12.
In our opinion at least, Will Smith can pretty much do no wrong. Even when he’s in a somewhat questionable movie, he still manages to come out looking good.
His latest, the sci-fi action movie After Earth, looks promising to continue that trend. The only real problem we can see so far is the director, M. Night Shyamalan.
Yeah, we used to think he was pretty great too. But now, not so much. What happened?
Anyway, a new trailer for After Earth has arrived and in it we see Smith and son Jaden, who also play father and son in the movie, crash-land on a hostile Earth a thousand years into the future. Needless to say (but we’ll go ahead anyway) things don’t go as they expect. To say the least.
Look for After Earth to arrive in theaters on June 7th. The trailer is after the break.
That’s right folks, as you probably heard already, J.J. Abrams is supposedly set to direct the first movie in the new Star Wars trilogy for Disney. Word came down this afternoon about the deal, which according to sources, is “a lock.”
We got our scoop from a few sources too and so far, the deal looks to be genuine. Although, no “official” conformation has been forthcoming from Abrams himself. We expect that shortly.
In the meantime, now that a writer and director seem to be attached, the next step is, of course, the casting speculation. Sadly, we don’t really know much about the story or the characters, so that might make it more difficult.
Don’t think that will stop people from giving it a try anyway. So, how do we feel about Mr. Abrams taking on the new Star Wars movie? Sound off!
Seasons Greetings! This week’s Christmas pick is the 1990 action sci-fi classic I Come in Peace (a.k.a. Dark Angel). International action star and He-Man type (no pun intended) Dolph Lundgren stars as a Houston, Texas cop who tracks down an alien who is killing people in order to harvest the universe’s most powerful narcotic. You may be saying to yourself “That’s really the plot?” and yes, it is. The film also stars Brian Benben (from the HBO classic comedy series Dream On), Betsy Brantley, Matthias Hues, and Jay Bilas.
Jack Caine (Lundgren) is a cop who disregards proper procedure in order to get the job done. While on a routine drug bust to catch a syndicate of yuppie criminals known as the White Boys, Caine’s partner is killed when he is discovered as a cop while trying to entrap them.
Even though they ended up changing their name, let us not forget that Syfy used to be called Sci-Fi and did, in fact, care about the genere we all know as, well, Sci-Fi. Returning to their roots, the channel has a new, upcoming drama called Defiance.
The show takes place in a future Earth ravaged by interstellar war and inhabited by surviving humans and aliens. To get your interested in it, we’ve got a clip/preview for the show below.
Defiance stars Grant Bowler, Julie Benz, Stephanie Leonidas, Tony Curran, Jaime Murray, Fionnula Flanagan, Mia Kirshner and Graham Greene. Some people in that list you should recognize.
We think it looks pretty good. What say you America (and elsewhere)? Look for Defiance to premiere on Syfy in April of 2013.
