As the French do it…

The new live-action non-animated Heavy Metal TV series will shortly be hitting the shores of France. I haven’t heard any news about which – if any – UK/US channels might be picking up this series. Of course, across the channel, they wrongly call this adult comic Metal Hurlant. And boy, do they love it. Anyhoo, […]

Ma-ma Madrigal – origins tale.

What better way to promote the new 3d Judge Dredd flick than to run an animated origins story for the movie’s baddie. That would be drug-dealing Ma-ma Madrigal, aka actress Lena Headey, best known to us SF geeks as Mrs Sarah Connor from the Chronicles of the same name. Killing Terminators, killing Judges, what’s the […]

Bite me.

Many a fan had written off the Vampire Diaries, but it’s coming back with its 4th season (hitting your TV screens in October on both side of the big pond), proving there’s bite in the old vampiric dog yet! Horror fans, they just keep on coming back from the (un)dead.

Judge Dredd new clip.

From the look of this new clip from the Judge Dredd movie, it appears as if Karl Urban is making the role of Judge Dredd his own. I’m with Wil Wheaton Block, want to rumble?

Red Dawn reborn.

Red Dawn is back. Originally, this reboot was going to feature the Chinese invading the USA, but trade interests intervened, and now we have the far less plausible state of North Korea using cold-bringer weapons to re-set the USA back to the stone age while they take over the States. That kind of moves this […]

The Sweeney movie.

The Sweeney are back, you slag. Kicking in doors and heads as they go after the wrong’uns, and driving into any cardboard boxes they can find. And the good news? Jack Regan is played by Ray Winstone. And Damian Lewis plays a cop called Lewis. How cool is that? Ray Winstone is the gov, gov. […]

Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters.

Hansel And Gretel are coming to kick your ass. No, seriously. They are going to take you down, in this upcoming film where witches are the new vampires. And they will be hunted, oh yes. Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton are the evil-hunting siblings. Look out for the bit in the trailer where the mayor […]

Portal gun, steampunked.

There are portal guns, and then there are steampunk portal guns. Artist Duncan Shirah knows what we like. He’s a very talented guy and has designed some lovely pieces of work, many which aren’t steampunk portal guns (but still seem, at least to us, to have a little steampunk aesthetic to them).

Wil Wheaton vs Matt Smith. Who wins, who dies?

It’s a Doctor Who versus Wil Wheaton slam-down in this bowling tourney, where Team Timelord (Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Steven Moffat, Arthur Darvill) take on Wil Wheaton’s motley regiment of geeksters (Wil plus Chris Hardwick, Alex Albrecht, Chloe Dykstra). Who wins, who dies (forgive the pun). Watch the video to find out, my nerdlie readers.
