For the 40th anniversary of the release of Planet of the Apes, 20th Century Fox re-released all the movies on Blu-Ray today, including the original with a slew of extras, and a box set of all five films. Here is a review of the Blu-Ray release of the original movie. See the Sci-Fi Movie Store for all the individual movies (and DVD releases as well).
Defying Gravity, a 13 episode series, is set to go into production in Vancouver January 19th by Fox TV Studios – but isn’t sold to a U.S. outlet yet. Gravity is more of an international production, and won’t be shopped to networks in the U.S. until it is completed. The series stars Ron Livingston (Office Space)and German actress Florentine Lahme (Impact), and is about eight astronauts from five countries who take on a mysterious six-year mission through the solar system. Executive producer Michael Edelstein says the inspiration came from the BBC docudrama Space Odyssey: Voyage to the Planets.
