I am one of the people on pins and needles waiting for news on whether Constantine will be picked up for a Season 2, by NBC or Syfy Channel, or if maybe it’ll get a second wind on a new network. The waiting makes me crazy.
“Ash vs Evil Dead” is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film franchise The Evil Dead and is set to premiere on STARZ in fall 2015. Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead.
This Daredevil adaptation is based on the Frank Miller “Man Without Fear” miniseries, and served as the basis for the initial “man in black” costume worn throughout Season 1. I think a balance has been set as a very good origin story for both Daredevil and Kingpin, because we see how far each man is willing to go to make the city “a better place”.
This week, Noah has a review of The Dead Lands, an indie action-adventure that slides a teeny bit into mythological-fantastical storytelling that you definitely need to see.

Both The Dead Lands debut in theaters and on VOD, and the Season 2 premiere of Bitten on Syfy Channel happen on April 17th.

This week, Nick Willing joins us to chat about how he created Olympus, what he finds appealing about the classic Greek Tragedies, about working with a large number of digital effects on a TV schedule, and more.
Olympus tells the story of how a few brave men and women banished the Gods to the realm of the unconscious – a place they called the Underworld or the Kingdom of Hades. The series follows the protagonist Hero (Tom York, Tyrant) as he seeks the truth about his past, which may be intertwined with the Gods themselves.
The 8th Imagine Science Film Festival will take place October 16-24, 2015, at locations all over New York City! The festival theme is “Air”.
Oxygen, Nitrogen, Carbon Dioxide. The medium of flight and sound waves. The atmosphere that surrounds us, and the gas that fills our lungs with every breath. Air is a part of our lives in so many ways that we scarcely notice it. And so this year we’re going to explore it in-depth, in all of its scientific facets!
