Photo of new Enterprise

by on Jan.18, 2008, under Movies

Moviefone has an exclusive image of the Enterprise under construction for J.J. Abrams upcoming Star Trek movie. It’s interesting that the name is already painted on it, yet it doesn’t have the “ship hull grey” color – it looks like it is being left as the raw metallic color, ala the refitted Enterprise in Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

by on Jan.16, 2008, under Television

What would happen if every humon on Earth suddenly disappeared? After our cities crumble to the ground? Wildlife encroaches one once concrete meccas? How would the world be different? That’s what the History Channel’s 2-hour original event, Life After People, speculates about. It will air on Monday, January 21st, at 9pm ET. In the mean time, you can catch a sneak peek (Ed: video not currently available). For a more humorous take, I wrote some time back what would happen if aliens visited a certain Central Florida location after thousands of years…although Fans of the Mouse may find it more humorous than most…

Imagine to take on Lensman?

by on Jan.15, 2008, under Movies

The Lensman series of books from E.E. “Doc” Smith, one of if not the earliest “space opera” and influential to many others, including George Lucas and J. Michael Straczynski, may see the big screen. Imagine Entertainment, headed by Ron Howard, along with Universal pictures, is negotiating an option for the series of stories that span a million years and deals with the struggles between struggles between the Arisians and the Eddorians, with humanity caught between. They mostly focuses on a Lensman, a person who bears the Lens, which gives the owner telepathic powers. Ironically, one of the screenwriters currently working (well, aside from the strike) with Imagine? J. Michael Straczynski (The Changeling).
