Oblivion… first trailer for Tom Cruise flick.

No sooner do we have the Planet of the Apes-ish poster for this science fiction film showing Tom ogling a broken-down New York of the future, than the trailer comes our way – some would say leaked, but who are we to judge? To me, this one has echoes of the old Silent Running film, with […]

Oblivion… first poster for Tom Cruise scifi epic.

Because you’re worth it? No, the tag line is actually ‘Earth is a memory worth fighting for’. The poster is rather a good one, showing a ruined New York in the far future. All you need now is a few apes to pop out and throw a net around Tom, and this Joseph Kosinski film […]

Ender’s Game – first pic.

Harrison Ford plays some shouty officer type in the big budget movie version of Ender’s Game, Orson Scott Card’s SF war opus that proved that the concept of child soldiers didn’t wither on the vine of various African battlefields… it went into the future and kicked some alien butt too.

Don’t diss the battle-bot.

A very nice short science fiction film, Archetype, directed by Aaron Sims, which looks a little like RoboCop signs-up for .Mil. A lot better looking and scripted than the usual fare, including pro actors such as Robert Joy (CSI:NY) and David Anders (Heroes, 24). So much so, it’s been picked up by Fox for full movie-dom. […]
