Tron Legacy trailer goes live

Tron Legacy trailer goes live

There is something peculiar about the highly-anticipated sequel to Eighties classic Tron – the furore that ignited the project didn’t come from fans pining for a follow-up but instead from inside the studio responsible for the original. There’s little doubt about it: Tron Legacy is a passion project for Walt Disney Studios and, come 2011, … Continued

First look: The Time Traveler’s Wife

First look: The Time Traveler’s Wife

Based on the hugely-popular and moving novel of the same name, The Time Traveler’s Wife should feature high on cinemagoers’ ones-to-watch list, and we can’t imagine that will change much after they’ve seen this trailer either, which you can now view below. About a wife whose husband suffers from a temporal displacement disorder, the story … Continued

Trailer From The Crypt

Trailer From The Crypt

Following a group of good-looking thieves as they raid catacombs, The Crypt looks to be the sort of low-budget supernatural horror that might find a home on DVD later this year but we can’t say we’re excited at this point…

True Blood on FX

True Blood on FX

This summer the blood-drenched, sexed-up HBO vampire show, True Blood, arrives on the FX Channel.

Predator meets Dog Soldiers

Predator meets Dog Soldiers

Word on Bloody Disgusting Street is that Neil Marshall is about to sign on the Robert Rodriguez-produced Predators, the next film in the increasingly-dreadful Predator series. The appointment however, if it does go through, will no doubt please a great many genre fans. British director Marshall made his name with cheap-but-effective horror flicks Dog Soldiers … Continued

Five things we want from Pirates 4… and five things we don’t

Five things we want from Pirates 4… and five things we don’t

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer has been talking up another Pirates sequel and we’re not quite sure how we feel about it. It’s a franchise that’s got potential but after an okay first outing and two dire sequels, our confidence in the potential being realised isn’t high. But if ever ambivalence needed to be represented by two … Continued

Sci-fi struggling at box-office?

Sci-fi struggling at box-office?

News that Land Of The Lost has performed dismally at the box office will do little to help the growing suspicion among analysts that 2009 will be a poor year for sci-fi and fantasy at cinemas. The Will Ferrell-lead remake of the classic TV show is predicted to take a relatively paltry $19 million in … Continued

Stargate gets serious

Stargate gets serious

Post-Galactica, it was always going to be hard for Stargate to survive as it was. An entertaining sci-fi show but ultimately one that was arguably lacking in ambition and a little too soft around the edges, it was no surprise that Stargate Atlantis came to an end, and many had assumed that it would mark … Continued

Johnny Five is alive!

It would seem that the Short Circuit remake is well and truly underway now, so to show our support (which will almost inevitably wane after today), here’s a list of our favourite Number 5 quotes: Short Circuit (1986) “Number 5 stupid name… want to be Kevin or Dave!” “Frankie, you broke the unwritten law. You … Continued

Total Recall recalled

Total Recall recalled

Reports that a remake of Total Recall was in production began to circulate earlier this year and these have now been confirmed by the appointment of a screenwriter. Kurt Wimmer, the scribe behind The Sphere and Ultraviolet, has been hired by Neal Moritz’ Original Films (the irony of which isn’t wasted on us) and Columbia … Continued

Opinion: Second-rate first dates, or why new horror sucks

Opinion: Second-rate first dates, or why new horror sucks

Before jumbo-super-flatscreen 5000s started barging into everyone’s front room like a loud, drunk uncle at the wrong niece’s holy communion, cinema used to be able to boast things regular, poxy televisions could only dream of – big pictures and mega sound to name just two. But those days are gone and cinema can now be … Continued
