It doesn’t appear as if Doctor Who will be dropping by Comic-Con 2016, but ahead of Steven Moffat’s final season, the longtime showrunner seems to be letting it all hang out. Not only does a new interview see Moffat admitting some major mistakes in both Season 7 and the Season 9 premiere, but also when we’ll finally meet Pearl Mackie’s new companion Bill.
As Doctor Who fans prepare to face a new era in the sci-fi series’ history, it seems only yesterday that excitement abounded over David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor meeting Matt Smith’s Eleven for the 50th anniversary special. We’d heard that Christopher Eccleston was at least approached to return as Nine, though new storyboards revealed how the three modern doctors might have all come together.
Following the debut of the first teaser a couple of weeks ago comes the first full trailer for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Seth Grahame-Smith’s mashup that combines — well, the title makes it obvious, no? Corsets, zombies, proper ladies training themselves in the art of war…it’s all just sort of delightfully bonkers. Here’s hoping the full film can live up to the insanity of the trailers.
Just yesterday it was being reported that J.K. Simmons has signed on for a couple more Terminator sequels, should Genisys do well enough to warrant them, of course. Aside from seeing Arnold Schwarzenegger fight himself, Simmons is easily one of the only enjoyable parts of the film. Another one of the enjoyable parts is Matt Smith’s character, who was hidden in promotional materials — for good reason.
If you want to understand modern Hollywood and how it’s evolved over the last 30 years, all you need to do is look at the contrast between 1984’s The Terminator and 2015’s Terminator Genisys.
Doctor Who fans have long waited to see where Matt Smith would next head after abdicating the TARDIS (and seriously, has anyone seen him in Terminator Genisys promos yet?), and Netflix has emerged as the lucky recipient. Smith, John Lithgow and Claire Foy have all joined up for Netflix’s new prestige drama, The Crown.
Ready or not, the next installment in the Terminator franchise is coming soon. This quartet of international trailers offers up new footage, and while some of it is a bit repetitive (how many times can you listen to Arnold Schwarzenegger say “I’ll be back”? Four, apparently), there are some interesting action pieces we haven’t seen before. Matt Smith is still conspicuously absent, however.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was already going to make all of the money in the world before it set its sights on a leading man with an absurdly passionate fanbase. But now that J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter spin-off is supposedly eyeing former Doctor Who star Matt Smith to play magical animal expert Newt Scamander, this thing is going to be required viewing for everyone with even a single geeky bone in his or her body.
Hey girl, not long ago it was rumored that ‘Lost River,’ the directorial debut from Ryan Gosling, would be heading straight to VOD—but that rumor was quickly debunked, and we’ll be seeing Baby Goose’s new movie in April. Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for the upcoming film, which is scheduled to play at SXSW in March after making the festival rounds last year, where it garnered some mixed-to-negative reviews.
Do you see that look of disapproval on Arnold Schwarzenegger's face in the image above this sentence? That's how we feel about the latest batch of images from 'Terminator: Genisys,' a film that couldn't have have built up more bad press in the past 24 hours unless it was actively out to sabotage itself. Just scroll down and prepare to go, "Yikes."
