Amazon's Galaxy Quest TV series will mix old and new casts

It really shouldn't have worked; a comedy about a group of washed-up actors from a cult sci-fi TV series who became involved in an actual space adventure when a group of aliens mistook their TV show for real events. There were a million ways which GALAXY QUEST could have gone wrong, but miraculously, the film found success with its equal measures of comedy, action, and heart, not...

Sean Astin on Amazon's potential Lord of the Rings TV series

Perhaps hoping for their very own Game of Thrones, it was revealed last Friday that Amazon Studios was in negotiations with Warner Bros. and the J.R.R. Tolkien estate to develop a Lord of the Rings TV series. Not everyone was enthused by the idea, but one person who knew that this day would be coming was Sean Astin , who played Samwise Gamgee in Peter Jackson 's LORD OF THE...

The Lord of the Rings may live again as an Amazon TV series

I had serious doubts that J.R.R. Tolkein's "The Lord of the Rings" series could ever successfully make the transition to the big-screen, but what Peter Jackson was able to achieve with THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING, THE TWO TOWERS, and THE RETURN OF THE KING was absolutely astounding. It would certainly be tough to follow up that achievement, even Jackson himself wasn't...

New full trailer for Amazon Prime's Jean-Claude Van Johnson!

I'm looking forward to the upcoming Amazon Prime series JEAN-CLAUDE VAN JOHNSON, simply for its audacious premise. Basically, Jean-Claude Van Damme is actually a kick-ass super spy, who only acted in films as a cover for his ops. Not only that, but the pilot that was screened last year was actually funny! It wasn't perfect (the whole "go at him one-at-a-time" joke...

Jean-Claude Van Johnson gets new teaser trailer

I remember when JEAN-CLAUDE VAN JOHNSON first appeared as a pilot Amazon Prime let you vote on, and thinking it was alright. I thought the beginning - with sadsack Jean-Claude Van Damme - moping around his house was extremely funny, while a lot of the Hollywood parody stuff (like the ridiculous Huckleberry Finn action film he found himself in) was a little too on the nose. As for the...

Teaser gives first look at John Krasinski as titular Jack Ryan

So the JACK RYAN franchise has been rebooted more times than CHARLIE'S ANGELS and BATMAN combined, and seemingly to diminishing returns. Not saying there haven't been really good films in RYAN's oeuvre (especially the first three - the one with Alec Baldwin and the two with Harrison Ford ), but the last two (with Ben Affleck and Chris Pine ) weren't as good. And after the financial...

Jon Hamm cast as Archangel Gabriel in Good Omens

Oh heavens! So it seems Amazon Prime's adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's GOOD OMENS magnum opus is charging full-steam ahead, unabated! In fact, casting is still underway, with Jon Hamm  cast as the Archangel Gabriel, joining Michael Sheen and David Tennant as Aziraphale  and Crowley, respectively. Unfortunately I haven't read the...

Amazon unleashes trailer for horror anthology series Lore

I've never had the pleasure to listen to Aaron Mahnke's LORE podcast as of yet, though I've heard great things (I mainly just listen to bad movie podcasts like The Flophouse and We Hate Movies). However, it is described on the official website as " an award-winning, critically-acclaimed podcast about true life scary stories. Our fears have roots. Lore exposes the...

Wong Kar-Wai will direct Amazon crime series Tong Wars

Like most cinephiles, I enjoy watching international films whenever I get a chance. It's always great to get out of your comfort zone and see how other cultures make films and tell stories. One of the greatest directors right now, possibly anywhere, is Hong Kong auteur Wong Kar-Wai. His films are beautiful and lyrical, such as his oft-cited masterpiece IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE. However,...

James Gunn's Starsky & Hutch series lands at Amazon and won't be a reboot

Just last week it was announced that James Gunn (GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2) was working on developing a reboot of 70's TV series Starsky & Hutch, and now, that project has found a home at Amazon, who has given the project a script-to-series commitment. What does that mean? Well, if Amazon takes a shine to the script when it comes in, they'll order the drama straight...

New The Tick promo shows off some big blue derring-do!

SPOOOOOOON!!!!!!! To say that I'm excited for the upcoming THE TICK Amazon Prime series is an understatement. I loved THE TICK since I was a kid watching the old FOX cartoon show, I loved the original live-action Patrick Warburton one, and I of course loved the recent pilot with Peter Serafinowicz! My favorite part was that the tone was different - instead of super cartoony, or sitcomy,...
