    Posted Friday, January 20th, 2017 08:19 pm GMT -5

    If you’ve been following the casting announcements and other news coming out of ‘Justice League’, you might have noticed something missing. Or rather, someone. That someone is Green Lantern. Though it had long been assumed that a rebooted version of the character would appear in the upcoming DC team up (especially given the comic book […]

    Hello and welcome back to ‘Final Frontier Friday’! This week we’ll be taking a break from ‘The Next Generation’ and returning to the original ‘Star Trek’.

  • Finn Jones On Danny Rand’s Role In ‘The Defenders’

    Posted Tuesday, January 17th, 2017 12:00 pm GMT -5

      There are still two months to go before ‘Iron Fist‘ makes its debut on Netflix. Despite that, Marvel and Netflix are already beginning to gear up for ‘The Defenders’, a crossover series set to unite the stars of the four prior Netflix shows this summer. Mirroring (albeit it in a more down to earth […]

  • Bruce Wayne’s Cousin Is ‘Powerless’

    Posted Tuesday, January 17th, 2017 10:00 am GMT -5

    Perhaps the most persistent of the many criticisms that have dogged DC’s attempts to compete with Marvel at the box office have been those relating to the grim, often humorless tone of the films. Though last summer’s ‘Suicide Squad‘ bucked that trend – so aggressively that some critics described it as overcompensation – it remains […]

  • Drew Barrymore Wants You To Try The ‘Santa Clarita Diet’!

    Posted Saturday, January 14th, 2017 09:00 pm GMT -5

    Remember when Netflix first ventured into the realm of original content? At the time, we could expect ‘House of Cards’ in the winter, ‘Orange is the New Black’ in the summer, and ‘Hemlock Grove’ whenever we actually remembered to watch it. Since then, the monolithic streaming provider’s lineup of original productions has grown to the […]

    Posted Friday, January 13th, 2017 10:00 am GMT -5

    In the wake of last summer’s ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’, which concluded a trilogy that began in 2011 with ‘X-Men: First Class’, the franchise is shifting its focus from the so-called core films to a slate of spinoffs and side projects. The slate of upcoming X-films currently includes ‘Logan‘, ‘Deadpool 2‘, and ‘The New Mutants‘, all of […]

  • Netflix Gives Us A First Look At Duncan Jones’ ‘Mute’

    Posted Monday, January 9th, 2017 04:00 pm GMT -5

      It might be an understatement to say that Netflix gets a lot of attention for their original content. Though most of that attention has fallen on their TV series, the streaming powerhouse has also ventured into feature film production. To some extent, that imbalanced focus is a result of the sheer quantity of TV […]

  • Final Frontier Friday: ‘The Defector’

    Posted Friday, January 6th, 2017 08:00 pm GMT -5

    Yep. I got bit by the ‘TNG ‘ bug last time, so we’re back for another round. This time, we’ll be taking a look at the third season episode ‘The Defector’. Last time I talked a bit about the third season and how it was the year the show finally “got good”. In that column, […]

  • ‘Rogue One’ Editors Talk Film Reshoots

    Posted Wednesday, January 4th, 2017 04:00 pm GMT -5

    Several months ago we learned that ‘Rogue One’, the latest entry in Disney and Lucasfilm’s ongoing box office revival of the ‘Star Wars’ franchise, had undergone a number of reshoots after the end of principal photography. While this wasn’t bad news in and of itself, it nonetheless generated a degree of concern ahead of the […]

  • ‘Lemony Snicket’ Warns You To Look Away

    Posted Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017 02:00 pm GMT -5

    As Netflix prepares to make its latest venture into the realm of original content with the debut of ‘Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events’, fans surely find themselves wonder whether the streaming giant can maintain the seemingly impossible standard of quality it has set for itself. This concern is one felt all the more […]

  • Does The Han Solo Spinoff Have A New Release Date?

    Posted Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017 12:00 pm GMT -5

    Until recently, it was something of an informal tradition for ‘Star Wars’ movies to be released in May. This was the case throughout George Lucas’s stewardship of the franchise, with the sole exception being the animated ‘Clone Wars’ feature (which was released in August 2008). That all changed in 2015 when ‘The Force Awakens’, the […]

  • Saw Gerrera Returns In A New ‘Rebels’ Trailer

    Posted Monday, January 2nd, 2017 06:00 pm GMT -5

    With ‘Rogue One’ showing us the immediate lead up to the events of the original ‘Star Wars’ while ‘Rebels’ chronicles the early days of the Rebel Alliance, the matter of whether or not the two would connect in some way was always more a question of “when” than “if”. Indeed, ‘Rogue One’ alone introduced a […]

  • Is Sony’s Animated ‘Spider-Man’ Film Introducing Miles Morales?

    Posted Monday, January 2nd, 2017 10:30 am GMT -5

    With all the hubbub over Tom Holland’s appearance in ‘Captain America: Civil War’ and of course, next summer’s ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming‘, all eyes have been on Spider-Man’s live-action future at the box office. With all that attention focused elsewhere, many of us may have lost sight of the other Spider-Man movie that Sony has in the […]

  • ‘Grimm’ Creators Are Anything But In Response To The Series’ Cancellation

    Posted Friday, December 30th, 2016 06:00 pm GMT -5

    ‘Grimm’ succeeded where countless other shows failed: Friday nights on NBC. It’s a night (and a network) that has doomed shows from ‘Constantine‘ to ‘Dracula‘, but ‘Grimm’ managed to beat the odds. The series not only survived, but thrived for the past five years on a network with a reputation for canceling cult shows that […]
