The making of steampunk gamer’s delight, Dishonored.

There’s a making of documentary just hit the view-tubes that goes behind the scenes of the fab-looking upcoming computer game, Dishonoured. So far, all we’ve had are the trailers for this game, so it’s nice to see some flesh put on the bones of the Victorian world. It could almost be the Kingdom of Jackals’ […]

As the French do it…

The new live-action non-animated Heavy Metal TV series will shortly be hitting the shores of France. I haven’t heard any news about which – if any – UK/US channels might be picking up this series. Of course, across the channel, they wrongly call this adult comic Metal Hurlant. And boy, do they love it. Anyhoo, […]

Ma-ma Madrigal – origins tale.

What better way to promote the new 3d Judge Dredd flick than to run an animated origins story for the movie’s baddie. That would be drug-dealing Ma-ma Madrigal, aka actress Lena Headey, best known to us SF geeks as Mrs Sarah Connor from the Chronicles of the same name. Killing Terminators, killing Judges, what’s the […]

Many a fan had written off the Vampire Diaries, but it’s coming back with its 4th season (hitting your TV screens in October on both side of the big pond), proving there’s bite in the old vampiric dog yet! Horror fans, they just keep on coming back from the (un)dead.

From the look of this new clip from the Judge Dredd movie, it appears as if Karl Urban is making the role of Judge Dredd his own. I’m with Wil Wheaton Block, want to rumble?

Red Dawn reborn.

Red Dawn is back. Originally, this reboot was going to feature the Chinese invading the USA, but trade interests intervened, and now we have the far less plausible state of North Korea using cold-bringer weapons to re-set the USA back to the stone age while they take over the States. That kind of moves this […]
