Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor.

So, my little Whovians, are you looking forward to the 23rd November’s Doctor Who fiftieth anniversary special? How many Doctors will they be able to squeeze in? Just the three of them? Rather ungenerous if true!

Star Trek into Darkness… alas, poor R2D2.

Okay, hands up. How many of you spotted R2D2 being blasted into space in the recent Star Trek into Darkness flick? Actually, we did, but thought we were going mad. Here’s the evidence of this rather odd Easter Egg. What next? A Klingon drinking in the cantina in the next Star Wars film?

Thor the Dark World… Loki isn’t low key.

Here’s another poster for Thor the Dark World. Can you hear the swooning? Because Loki’s back. Actually, he never really left, but you get my drift…

Thor: The Dark World… putting the smack into London.

Or maybe that should be thud? Here’s a new poster with London in peril in the upcoming Thor: The Dark World movie. I seem to recall London came under a bit of a Cumberbatching in the last Trek movie too. What is it about Hollywood and their desire to put the boot into the UK? […]

Snowpiercer… let’s go faster.

Here’s a new international poster for Snowpiercer, the “It’s an ice age: I know, let’s survive it on a train!” science fiction movie.

Atlantis on BBC.

The BBC have released the first big trailer for their Merlin replacement on Saturday night’s family viewing slot… Atlantis. And it looks a lot like an understudy at the Hercules/Xena/Sinbad school of fantasy TV series, with not much to set it part from ancient Greece, including the three main characters, Jason (Argonauts), Hercules (yep), and […]

SpaceShipTwo… all your planets is ours.

Virgin Galactic reports that their SpaceShipTwo vessel shattered the sound barrier above the Mojave Desert in one of its final test flights before Richard Branson launches his commercial endeavor to allow DotCom billionaires to escape the Earth before the big asteroid hits.
