I’ve posted previously about how dissapointed I’ve been with some of the recent film releases, particularly those I’ve picked up on Blu-Ray.
It would appear that the end of 2009 and beginning of 2010 are trying their hardest to make that up to me!
I happened to catch the trailer for James Cameron’s Avatar a few days ago, and it looks simply amazing. That plus the description of the overall storyline sounds like it’s exactly the sort of film I enjoy. If you like Scifi even half as much as I do, have a look at this and let me know what you think!
This prompted me to have a bit of a trawl, and aside from the news that Battlestar Galactica is getting yet another remake, this time under the guidance of Bryan Singer; which made me grin… but then I discovered that one of my favourite films ever is getting it’s own remake due for launch in 2010.
I can’t find any images or logos from the new Dune to post for your edification, but I found this while looking… and it made me laugh out loud! So many different things to giggle at there for a Dune affectionado like me!
On the smaller screen, work continues apace on the new adaptation of an 80’s Scifi Classic. Those of a certain age will remember another US Imported TV show which featured Robert Englund who later went on to take the titular role of Freddy Krueger in a famous series of Horror films… Who can forget the famous rodent eating scenes, and the Dynasty worthy shoulderpads in “V” – even if the effects do look dated by today’s standards, the series is being “reimagined” (don’t we hear that phrase a lot in the film & tv context these days) for a 2010 screening.
Doesn’t the chap 2nd from Right look a lot like Michael J Fox…?
