While Straczynski will never get the rights to the series back from Warner Brothers for television, one thing he has always owned is the rights to a feature length film. What does that mean for him? Well until now, not much. Most studios don’t want the rights to only a movie when a TV show could interfere with it. Thankfully, though, with Studio JMS (J. Michael Straczynski) having successfully launched, it looks like the movie may come to fruition after all!
It was surprising in the first place to find out that they were going to continue the ‘Tremors‘ franchise after all of these years, but at the very least I’m happy to share that we’ll be seeing Michael Gross (‘ER’, ‘Family Ties’) back as part of the cast. Gross has had a starring role in the franchise since the first film, playing the overly affectionate gun loving Burt Gummer. He is the one man that has, time after time, gone up against the creatures from the first movie, its sequels, and through the short run series.
It wouldn’t be right to continue the series without him!
It’s the third episode of ‘Sailor Moon Crystal,’ and that means it’s time to introduce the third senshi! Enter Sailor Mars!
The episode starts with an intriguing mystery. People who take the 6:00 bus near Rei’s shrine disappear. Now, ordinarily, you would think that would cause people to stop wanting to take that bus, but the people of Toyko are fearless and they continue to do so with an impressive body count adding up. When Mii-chan, a little girl that frequents Rei’s shrine, is spirited away, it’s up to Sailor Moon and friends to save the day! You know, in that clutzy serendipitous way that Sailor Moon always does.
After a couple of acclaimed runs on ‘Journey Into Mystery’ and ‘Young Avengers’ featuring the (semi-reformed) mischievous trickster Loki, indie comic darling turned mainstream marvel Kieron Gillen will revisit the mystical realm of Asgard. This time the writer behind ‘The Wicked + The Divine’ will tackle Marvel Comics newcomer Angela, who first appeared for the House of Ideas in ‘Age of Ultron’ courtesy of Neil Gaiman after being established as a long-time ‘Spawn’ character. While the mysterious warrior has mostly been seen alongside the Guardians of the Galaxy, we’ll finally get to learn more about her past thanks to the new ongoing title ‘Angela: Asgard’s Assassin’.
While James Gunn, the director of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ has been unofficially announced to helm the sequel to the film, we don’t have to wait to hear what what he wants to do!
With Wesley Snipes out of jail for tax evasion, he is ready to jump back on the movie making bandwagon and recently has said that he would love to return to the ‘Blade’ series.
Pop Quiz! You see a funnel forming from the sky over the ocean, do you
- A) Pull out your phone and tweet about it.
- B) Wait until you know if it’s filled with sharks before deciding if you’ll take shelter in your basement or evacuate your home.
- C) Grab your chainsaw and pop a few ibuprofen, because it’s going to be a long day.
These are the kinds of questions that you need to know the answers to if you ever want to even HOPE to survive a Sharknado! At least that’s what writer Andrew Shaffer will tell you in his new book ‘How to Survive a Sharknado and Other Unnatural Disasters’. In this ‘Official Guide to Staying Alive’, Shaffer details exactly how to survive the situations presented in some of the various SyFy Channel original movies that have been released over the years. Between the situations from films like ‘Sharknado’, ‘Ghost Shark’, ‘Pirahnaconda’, and ‘Stonehenge Apocalypse’, there are plenty of absurdly disastrous unnatural occurrences to choose from, Shaffer delves into some of the best (and worst) of them!
‘How to Survive a Sharknado’ primarily reads like an ACTUAL survival guide, treating the events of these various B-Movies as entirely realistic and likely to happen. It’s pretty fantastic really.
