Liebesman to Helm CLASH 2!

Posted in Movies, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror with tags , , , , , , , on August 31, 2010 by ghostradioworld

Remember Jonathan Liebesman?  No?  Well, way back in 2003 he directed a little fright fest called Darkness Falls.  And it looked like  he was on the cusp of a major career.  Although he made several minor films, this director has largely been off the Hollywood radar for the last seven years.  Well, that is about to change.  As he just signed to direct the sequel to Clash of the Titans.

More on this sequel after the jump.

James Camerson Throws PIRANHA 3D Under the Bus!

Posted in Movies, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 30, 2010 by ghostradioworld

In an interview with Vanity Fair, James Cameron had this to say about Piranha 3D:

I tend almost never to throw other films under the bus, but that is exactly an example of what we should not be doing in 3-D. Because it just cheapens the medium and reminds you of the bad 3-D horror films from the 70s and 80s, like Friday the 13th 3-D. When movies got to the bottom of the barrel of their creativity and at the last gasp of their financial lifespan, they did a 3-D version to get the last few drops of blood out of the turnip. And that’s not what’s happening now with 3-D. It is a renaissance—right now the biggest and the best films are being made in 3-D. Martin Scorsese is making a film in 3-D. Disney’s biggest film of the year—Tron: Legacy—is coming out in 3-D. So it’s a whole new ballgame.

A Scene Cut form Neil Gaiman’s “Doctor Who” Script

Posted in Books, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror, Television, Writing with tags , , , , , , on August 30, 2010 by ghostradioworld

On his blog, Neil Gaiman just shared this scene which he’s cut from his “Doctor Who” script.  He claims it has nothing to do with the plot, but we’re sure Doctor Who anoraks will intuit something from it.  For the rest of us, it’s just an entertaining bit of writing, and might give us a sense on where he’s got the right end of the stick (screwdriver?) Doctorwise.

The Doctor has just been given a bowl of something to eat. Something…possibly… alien

Is it something people can eat?
(to Doctor)
Shouldn’t you scan it with your screwdriver or something?

Why would I scan food with my screwdriver?

See if it’s safe?

The Doctor leans over, dips his finger into his bowl, tastes it.

Some unusual trace elements, smidge too much background radiation, but, yeah, very yummy.

Amy is about to try some of his food… he stops her.

THE DOCTOR (cont’d)
No. Don’t put it in your mouth.

Not for humans?

Not for you. Tastes like Marmite on socks.

Well, that food may taste like Marmite on socks.  But this little exchange tastes 100% “Doctor Who”!  And if this is the quality of a cut scene, we have high hopes for the rest of the script.

Google in Talks to Allow Movie Rentals Over YouTube!

Posted in Movies, Television with tags , , , , on August 29, 2010 by ghostradioworld

According to the Financial Times:

Google YouTube video site is in negotiations with Hollywood’s leading movie studios to launch a global pay-per-view video service by the end of 2010, putting it head-to-head with Apple in the race to dominate the digital distribution of film and television content.

This is a major play for the tech giant.  And another sign of the future of movie consumption.  We’re sure there’s going to be a lot more about this in the hours and days ahead.

Will “Lost” Dominate Emmys Tonight?

Posted in Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror, Television with tags , , , , , on August 29, 2010 by ghostradioworld

Yup, this is the last year that “Lost” can take home any Emmys.  And that has a lot of TV mavens suggesting it might clean up at the Emmys (airing tonight 8/29/10 on NBC), but others suggest it may be the last chance for the series to get snubbed.

Michael Emerson, “Lost’s” “Ben Linus”, doesn’t expect to pick up another statue tonight.  (He won last year.)  He hasn’t even prepared a speech.

“I haven’t thought about it much this year because I just don’t feel like I’m in the running, ”  he told E! television.  He also has no idea who might win, but thinks fellow “Lost” alumni might have reason to celebrate, noting “maybe it’s Terry O’Quinn’s time again”
