by on Oct.28, 2011, under Movies

Peter Jackson made a couple of announcements today: first, Wellington, New Zealand will host the world premiere of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in late November 2012, and also that the Hobbiton set will remain standing and become a permanent tourist attraction once filming has been completed.

Trying to find the funds for the trip now…

Matt Smith isn’t done yet with Doctor Who

by on Oct.27, 2011, under Television

Pretty much as expected, Matt Smith countered last week’s rumor he was leaving Doctor Who after the next series (which suddenly exploded earlier this week with various sites saying he “confirmed” it, referencing the same report). I love playing this role, and I don’t want to give it up anytime soon,” he said. “I feel very lucky. In the current climate for actors, I’d never say, ‘This is too much’ – quite the opposite, in fact. I’d say, ‘Bring it on’.”

Again, it looks like more was read into his earlier statement than was intended. Still, it doesn’t mean that he’s under contract any longer than the next series either, so the future remains unclear…

The Dark Tower may have found a TV outlet at HBO

by on Oct.25, 2011, under Movies, Television

The off-and-on The Dark Tower project, based on the Stephen King book series, may have found a home for the TV portion of the multi-media production, according to an interview that Brian Grazer gave to MTV News. Reportedly going through a budget-slimming process after Universal balked at the price tag for a “3 movie and 2 TV series” plan (Grazer says they’ve already cut $45 million), at least the TV portion may land at HBO. “We’re going to do [‘The Dark Tower’] with HBO,” according to Grazer. “We’ll do the TV with HBO, and we’ll do the movie with… to be determined. We’ll do it right.”

No confirmation has come from HBO yet, but given that HBO greenlighted the ambitious Game of Thrones to excellent results, perhaps they can see the benefits beyond the risks. Meanwhile, Deadline reports that there is no deal actually in place.

Sanctuary preview: “Monsoon”

by on Oct.24, 2011, under Television

Henry and Will are looking for yet another abnormal, and have their guns out in front of them. That quickly changes to retreating while firing when they see what they’re trying to catch. Will is able to calm it down and gets it to retreat, but not after Henry is knocked against the wall and caught in some electric sparks. Be sure to watch the clip and tune in this Friday at 10/9c to see if Henry can join Will to minimize the damage.

“How many fingers?” “Tuesday.” “He’s going to be fine…”
