RIP B5’s Commander Jeffrey Sinclair.

Michael O’Hare, the actor who played Commander Jeffrey Sinclair in (early) Babylon Five, has sadly passed away from a heart attack at the far too young age of 60. Michael also appeared in George A. Romero’s Tales from the Darkside, and more recently, Law & Order. Thanks to J. Michael Straczynski for passing on word […]

Steampunk goes green… Wrylon Robotical Illustrated Catalog of Botanical ‘Bots.

Here’s the 1912 edition of the delightfully steampunkish Wrylon Robotical Illustrated Catalog of Botanical ‘Bots – it’s actually a Kickstarter project, but given it’s only a few hundred dollars away from its target amount, this splendid-looking book will probably be winging its way to us very soon. Its creator Barry McWilliams has imagined a world […]

Spider 3D trailer.

Spiders3DTrailer from Heather Wixson on Vimeo. It’s been a while since we’ve had a film where giant monsters smash up large cities like New York – although if you live in Japan, there was probably one of these on the cinema last week.

Gravity Falls.

I can’t watch this Disney cartoon without thinking of the classic scifi novel ‘When Gravity Fails’. But Gravity Falls is actually closer to the X-files for kids, as brother and sister team Dipper and Mabel get sent off to the US sticks to spend time with their uncle and have to get to the bottom […]

Thrashing Thanos.

It looks like Thanos is the big bad in the second Avengers movie. And here’s some concept art from the SFX team at the studio. This guy could give Galactus a good hiding if it came to it, right? Has there ever been a Thanos versus Galactus battle? If not, there should have been. Or […]

Dwarves for dinner? New Hobbit poster.

Could you cope with catering for 13 dwarves for dinner? We know a little hairy-footed Hobbit that looks a lot like Martin Freeman who is going to have to cope. This new poster from the Peter Jackson film gives you some idea of what’s in store. But not, we suspect, the quantity of washing up […]

The ancient streams of Mars.

NASA’s Curiosity rover mission has found evidence a stream once ran vigorously across the area on Mars where the rover is driving. There is earlier evidence for the presence of water on Mars, but this evidence – images of rocks containing ancient streambed gravels – is the first of its kind. Scientists are studying the […]

Frankenweenie funnies.

Yes, we know, Frankenweenie does sound a bit like a bad horror porn film cover of a Twilight flick, but it really is the new Tim Burton film. Animated. And it’s for kids, you know (of all ages). Watch the trailer herein and make your own mind up, people.
