What can we expect from Stephen King’s ‘Under the Dome’?

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

While I’m not a Stephen King fan per se, I don’t think there’s a novel more anticipated this year than Stephen King’s ‘Under the Dome‘ set to debut this November. Which begs the question, what do we know about this novel thus far? Well, despite being four months away from the release date we do know some things. For example, ‘Under the Dome’ promises to be Stephen King’s longest novel to date, more than double that of his current novel Duma Key and nearly 100 hundred pages longer than the first edition of The Stand.

Publishers have been very close-lipped about the details of the plot but here’s what King has revealed so far. ‘Under the Dome’ is the culmination of two rewrites King began in the 80s of a novel that was never completed. These novels were titled ‘The Cannibals’ and ‘Under the Dome’ respectively.

Below are the details concerning the plot from Stephen King’s official website:

“On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester’s Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener’s hand is severed as “the dome” comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when—or if—it will go away. Dale Barbara, Iraq vet and now a short-order cook, finds himself teamed with a few intrepid citizens—town newspaper owner Julia Shumway, a physician’s assistant at the hospital, a select-woman, and three brave kids. Against them stands Big Jim Rennie, a politician who will stop at nothing—even murder—to hold the reins of power, and his son, who is keeping a horrible secret in a dark pantry. But their main adversary is the Dome itself. Because time isn’t just short. It’s running out.”

While the novel will explore similar themes that were brought up in The Stand, King himself has stated that the two are very different novels in terms of plot and character. I’m a little more than excited for this novel, I might even do myself a favor and pick up a copy.


Robert Rodriguez to Reboot Predator

Wednesday, July 8, 2009

Another 80s action staple is on track to be rebooted. IESB is reporting that director Robert Rodriguez has announced plans to reboot the Arnold Schwarzenegger action film, Predator.

The director made the announcement at his Troublemaker Studios, where Texas politicians signed a reform bill to the state's film incentive program. Here's what the director said at the press conference.

"I'm going to be able to shoot my upcoming Machete here, a sci-fi action film called Nervewrackers, a re-boot of the Predator series called Predators, and a couple of smaller movies called Sin City 2 and The Jetsons."

The site also confirmed that Rodriguez was indeed directing and producing the Predators remake, and it will be his own take on the original concept.

We'll be sure to keep you posted on any news surrounding this remake.


Torchwood cut 'like punishment'

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

Cutting the new series of Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood to five shows from 13 felt like "we were being punished", its star John Barrowman has said.

The third series of the sci-fi show - which began on BBC Three before moving to BBC Two - will now be shown on consecutive days on BBC One.

Barrowman said other shows moved to BBC One "and they don't get cut".

The BBC said it wanted to create "a powerful sense of event" with Children of Earth, which will start on Monday.

Barrowman told the Radio Times: "I'm going to get a little political and I'll probably get into trouble for it."

He said Torchwood's first series had been "the most successful show on BBC3 - ever" and, as a result, had been moved to BBC Two where "we were beating shows that had been on BBC Two for a long time".

"The decision was made to go to BBC One and then we were cut - from 13 episodes down to five."

'Very special'

Barrowman said the new episodes were "incredible, I have no doubt about that".

"But personally, I felt like we were being punished.

"Other shows move from BBC Three and Two to One and they don't get cut.

"So why are we? It felt like every time we moved we had to prove ourselves."

But the show's writer and creator Russell T Davies told the magazine: "Part of us thought, 'we could do another 13 episodes, we've learnt how to do that, and the second series was better than the first'.

"But why not change it?"

He said if the show was made in the US, "they'd try to keep it going for seven years, doing the same thing every week".

He added: "It's the British audience we make these for.

"And I don't think audiences are remotely lost by a change in format."

A BBC spokesman said: "We wanted to create a powerful sense of event when the show came to BBC One and so talked with the show makers about a story that could run over five consecutive days."

This was something "very special" that had only been done before with 2008's five-part thriller Criminal Justice and Iraq-based drama Occupation, shown earlier this month.

Torchwood: Children Of Earth follows the alien-chasing team as they battle for the future of the human race against the fiercest force they have encountered.


j.j. Abrams Not Committed to ‘Star Trek’ Sequel

Wednesday, June 24, 2009

Following the success of this year’s ‘Star Trek’, it seems like a no-brainer to reunite the same creative team behind the youthful voyage on the Enterprise. Screenwriters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman are already working on the script for the sequel; J.J. Abrams is still unsure about returning for another round. In an interview with, Orci and Kurtzman address the box-office success of ‘Star Trek’, the timeline for the finished script for the next ‘Star Trek’ (Christmas), along with the news that Abrams has not committed to a sequel.

Abrams, the creative mind behind successful television series Felicity, Alias and Lost, has had a good amount of experience in the movie industry, and has proven that he can produce a successful movie. If he does not return for the sequel, it might be due to a busy work schedule. If you think there is an absence of gigantic movie monsters, you’re hoping there’s a Cloverfield sequel in the planning stages. Or possbily a new television project. Most likely, Abrams schedule is largely dedicated to work on Mission: Impossible 4 or The Dark Tower. However, if you enjoyed the recent ‘Star Trek’ movie, this might be a cause for concern. Attempting to recreate the same movie-going experience with a new director could prove to be a challenge.

Which contemporary directors could meet the challenge? Maybe Christopher Nolan. Possibly Bryan Singer. Well, it might not matter if J.J. Abrams returns to direct, which is the most likely outcome. A $235 million box-office speaks loudly in the ear of a in-demand director.


Richard Pryor At The Star Wars Bar

Thursday, June 18, 2009

And you thought Wuher and Bea Arthur were the only Cantina owners... In 1977, comic genius Richard Pryor made a production-deal with NBC for an evening comedy and variety show. Pryor had already done several successful specials for the station. The show starred himself, Sandra Bernhard, Robin Williams, and several other up-and-coming comedians. It was much like Saturday Night Live, with hilarious skits throughout the program. One of these skits was 'Star Wars Bar'. Richard Pryor plays the owner of the Cantina, and all the Cantina regulars are there: Hammerhead, Figrin D'an the Barquin, Ponda Baba, and many more. In fact, these were the actual costumes from the movie, used with permission from Lucasfilm.

The clip, although extremely funny, is not among Pryor's best, but it is still a must-see for Star Wars fans. The most impressive are the costumes (sadly, it's too dark to see if there are any costumes not used in the movie), but it is the idea of having Richard Pryor interact with the aliens and being in the Star Wars universe that is the funniest. Another interesting fact, I'm pretty sure that this was done before the Holiday Special, so Pryor is in fact the second owner of the Mos Eisley Cantina.

'The Richard Pryor Show' was too racy for NBC's standards, so they quit the show after only about seven or eight episodes. Despite its huge (but short) success, the show was great; but due to some of the content of the episodes, clips like 'Star Wars Bar' have been seen only rarely
