The Doctor’s other favorite nemesis are making a return. The Cybermen will appear in the upcoming second series of the revived Doctor Who, and they’ve gotten a makeover. Check it out. Doctor Who will return first with “The Christmas Invasion” on Christmas Day on BBC One. Still no word on DVDs or a network in the States.
First, oh, my: The more talented geeks at MIT are doing a Star Wars Trilogy musical (probably to coincide with the exhibit at Boston’s Museum of Science); the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies is undergoing a massive revamp, never heard of in the MMORPG realm, including the removing of classes; and the combined sales of the Episode III DVD and Star Wars: Battlefront II game (PC CD-ROM/PC DVD-ROM/PS/2/XBOX) reached $210 million in the first week.
Didn’t even know this was in the works: Fox has committed to a pilot for the tentatively-titled The Sarah Connors Chronicles, based on the character played by Linda Hamilton in the first two Terminator movies, following her and her son John. Hamilton is not expected to be involved, nor is Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Included is a mention of a possible 4th movie, as perhaps the start of another trilogy.
Serenity, the Firefly movie, will come out on DVD in Widescreen and Fullscreen versions on December 20th – just right for a stocking stuffer for your favorite Browncoat. This is a fairly fast turnaround for a DVD, but with only $25 million domestic receipts, they want to capitalize while its still fresh in people’s minds – and sometimes DVD sales far outweigh tickets…this release means Firefly deserves its own section in the Sci-Fi TV Store.
