My latest Snakkle gallery features the fantastic cult classic series The X-Files and reveals where all the cast landed since the show ended in 2002. X-fanatic Paul Terry and I think Gillian’s just gotten more gorgeous. The truth, according to us.
I had an exclusive chat with actor Fran Kranz this week when he stopped into Philly to host a Q&A of his new Whedonverse film, The Cabin in the Woods.
For FEARnet, we talked about his history with Whedon, his own horror film favorites and how their intention was making The Cabin in the Woods nothing less than a new horror classic. When you see it, you just might agree with him.
Next week, we’ll post a spoilery follow up where he talks more specifically about his character, Marty.
I was talking to Michael Henley, my friend and fellow movie critic (read his excellent blog here), the other evening about the drama surrounding who will direct The Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire. As we bandied about the options and the complexities of the second book, it hit me that maybe Lionsgate needs to shift their focus to the talent pool directing for the small screen.
It actually makes perfect sense as TV directors are better prepared to turn Catching Fire around in little more than a year’s time. In this TV Geek Army story, I list the reasons why TV directors should be considered and then list 5 that should be at the top of Lionsgate’s list.
What do you think? Crazy idea or do you have a favorite TV director that belongs on the short list too?
How’s that for a cover? Hellloooooo, RDJ.
The brand-new issue of SCI FI Magazine hits stands this week and it features my cover article on Joss Whedon and Marvel’s ambitious superhero mega movie, The Avengers. I talked exclusively to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige about the unprecedented blockbuster experiment that hits on May 4th in the U.S.
I also chatted with the lovely Tom Hiddleston, aka the film’s big bad, Loki. He’s a treat in every way.
If you’re giddy like me about Prometheus this June, there’s a great Ian Spelling feature on it with Damon Lindelof and my chat with Charlize Theron.
Lastly, I also had an exclusive interview with Maisie Williams, who plays feisty Arya Stark on HBO’s Game of Thrones.
You can subscribe to SCI FI Magazine or you can find it in retailers like Barnes and Noble in the magazine section under Entertainment.
In honor of Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard’s fantastic Cabin in the Woods finally hitting theaters this week, for Movies.com I came up with 8 other delayed films that ended up be very worthy of release.
Actors Laura Allen and Dylan Minnette play Hannah and Rex Britten on Awake and I was part of a call with them where I asked how it is they have their own story outside of Michael’s POV and their hopes in terms of finding out which one of them is dead or alive. Here’s my TVGA feature
If you are a Buffy or Angel fan, then you know Whedon alumni Steven S. DeKnight was learned from the master about how to write TV shows that suck you into their world. make you fall in love with their characters and then break your heart all in the name of good drama. On his own show, DeKnight did just that in the Spartacus: Vengeance season finale. For TV Geek Army, I was part of a conference call where he explains what fans should look forward to next January when the show returns. Here’s the story
What did you think of the finale?
Look how pretty!
The latest issue of SFX Magazine is out in news agents, stores and digital Zinio now (Barnes and Noble in about a week) and it features an awesome shiny cover of Andrew Garfield’s new take on The Amazing Spider-Man.
Aside from that goodness, I talk to actor Jason Isaacs about his mind-bending new leading role on the NBC drama Awake. He’s a great interview possessing some superior dry wit. Catch the show on Thursday nights.
I look at the ‘Titanic” cast then and now for my new Snakkle gallery here
