Resident Alien Trailer Plays Up Comedy

The Resident Alien TV series announced almost a year ago now has a trailer. While the show was described in terms of a “moral dilemma”, and I speculated it might resemble a procedural, this short video, as you might expect from a show starring Alan Tudyk, plays up the comedy. But then, they’re plugging “from the humans behind Family Guy and Wedding Crashers“, so yeah. The show is “coming this summer” on Syfy. It’s based on the comic book series […]

Valiant Releases Trailer for Bloodshot, Their First Movie

Like any corporate comic publisher, Valiant really wants to be making movies. Their first film, Bloodshot, opens in February 2020, and the trailer is now available. (Update: The release date for the movie is now March 13, 2020.) I previously didn’t know anything about the character, but (and given the name, this shouldn’t surprise me) he looks like a memory-wiped super-soldier type, a magically healing violent weapon who wants to discover the truth about his past. So casting Vin Diesel […]

After Delay, Wynonna Earp Resumes Production

Wynonna Earp — the TV show airing on Syfy, produced by IDW, and based on a comic series — ran into some snags earlier this year. Production was delayed on the upcoming fourth season, and speculation had it that it was due to money problems at IDW Entertainment. However, in early July, it was announced that production was greenlit to start this fall, with Season 4 airing in Summer 2020. IDW was aided by more money from Syfy as “the […]

Good Omens

If anyone’s left around here, you may have wondered where I’ve been for the past week or more. I became completely obsessed with Good Omens, which dropped six hour-long episodes on Amazon prime video at the end of May. I’ve already watched it three times so far — once straight through, once just for more of the Boyfriends (and to better understand the setup for a plot twist), and once to share with friends. (Brunch party, with red wine for […]

New Mutants Movie Delayed Again

It’s got to be hard, merging two major movie studios. No matter how bad it will eventually be for the customer, Disney is plowing ahead with its acquisition of Fox, and one of the results seems to be not knowing what to do with The New Mutants movie. Originally produced by Fox as part of the X-Men franchise, it’s now owned by Disney, along with the rest of the Marvel properties (except for Sony’s Spider-Man rights). Originally scheduled for release […]

Avengers Cast Has Some Singing Fun

It’s not like the sure-to-make-a-billion-dollars superhero movie opening this coming weekend needs any promotional help at this point, but after re-watching Captain America: Civil War last night, it was nice to see these Avengers actors goofing off. The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon rewrote Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire” to cover Marvel superheroes and had some of the cast of Avengers: Endgame sing it. Here it is: (Now that I found the source, I realized the guy in […]
