Upcoming Project: Terminator Reboot TV Series & Film
Look — I love this world. I love Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day. But I don’t want to go back to this world.
My heavy remake fatigue doesn’t stem as much from the worlds themselves. As ideas, killer robots and time travel are just always going to be interesting. But modern science fiction, as this article points out, has problems.
As I reflected today on the content of a film, I realized the question I always ask is: what are you saying? The response I have to a film is always in direct reaction to that question. The only reason I enjoyed the television show Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles is that it dealt with time, love, cognition, life and death. It respected the world of the two great films — and it had something to say.
The films we remember, the reason to even bother rebooting in the first place, is because the original filmmakers had something to say — something that became memorable, powerful, and influential. Sci-fi that changed the world.
You’ll pardon me if I don’t want to go back but today’s remakes have nothing to say. If they did, they’d say it in their own worlds.
Titled ‘Many Happy Returns’, the short episode will serve as a prequel to the show’s third series…

What if this is really good? I hope it is.
In what critics are calling his best work as writer/director since SLINGBLADE, Academy Award® winner Billy Bob Thornton stars - along with Oscar® winner Robert Duvall, two-time Oscar® nominee John Hurt and Golden Globe winner Kevin Bacon - in this story of fathers and sons, wars and peace, and the turbulent time that changed America forever.
It’s 1969 in a small Alabama town, and the death of a quirky clan’s long-estranged wife and mother brings together two very different families for the funeral. But do the scars of the past hide differences that will tear them apart or expose truths that could lead to the most unexpected collisions of all?

Available on-demand August 20th & in select theaters September 13th!
O Captain, My Captain
Now, where is that beautiful trailer?
Apparently, it’s breathtaking.
Everything I had previously read about Ben Stiller’s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty had me believing that the film was going to be a broad comedy…
But watching the premiere footage from the film today during 20th Century Fox’s presentation of CinemaCon I discovered that not only is the movie more of a dramedy, it looks like it could be a film that everyone is talking about during Oscar season. Mixing both light and dark tones and featuring some absolutely beautiful cinematography, the The Secret Life of Walter Mitty reel is the best thing I’ve seen so far at the week-long Vegas convention, and the movie is now cemented on my must-see list for the rest of 2013.

Written by and starring some of the leading lights on the UK comedy scene, Love Matters is a season of six stand-alone comedies.
Starting from Thursday 28th March, each week two perfectly paired half-hour films will paint a picture of real romance in the 21st century.
From one night stands to unrequited love, internet dating to long-term relationships, and arranged marriages to dates with fate, the trails and tribulations of love are all laid bare in a rather comical fashion by some of the most exciting and talented writers and actors in the business. Keep your eyes peeled because you’re guaranteed to see a few familiar faces from shows like Hunderby, The It Crowd, Peep Show and many more.
The season kicks off with a double bill featuring 30 And Counting, the tale of 30-something George, who is convinced he’s sent his girlfriend to bat for the other team. He ends up being introduced to internet dating by his best buds and hilarity ensues.

In the weeks to come we’ll meet Isy Suttie’s Miss Wright, a singing teacher with a passion for a fella who doesn’t even know she exists, and Sarah Solemani’s Aphrodite Fry. A love goddess our Aphrodite is not, and after one guy in particular lets her down she forges a plan to ensure it will never, ever happen again.
Speaking of awkward moments, A Nice Arrangement is full of ‘em, as Satpal tries to navigate the murky waters of an arranged marriage, without telling the love of his life that his mother wants him to marry someone else.
And finally…Kitten, a Blackpool schoolgirl who believes everything she’s told by a fortune teller. When she meets the rather handsome Jake, she’s convinced he’s the man the cards say she’s been waiting for, but will he be into Kitten Chic? You’ll just have to wait and find out.
