5 sneak-peek scenes from Iron Man 2!

Share
We just got ahold of these 5 sneak-peek clips from the upcoming Iron Man 2 movie. I'm pretty excited for the upcoming movie, because I really enjoyed the first one, however it IS movie #2 in the series. Sequels have a much higher percentage for sucking, rather than being good; but I'm optimistic for Iron Man 2.

Take a look at the clips below - what do you think? "Sequel Suck" or Awesome?

Iron Man 2 opens May 7th.

Fox has decided NOT to pursue a U.S. version of the UK cult hit Torchwood. The show is saved!

Share
FOX, the station known for killing awesome scifi shows is NOT going to be making a US Torchwood spinoff!

This is great news for Torchwood fans.

HollywoodReporter.com reports:
The network was developing a stateside version of the "Doctor Who" spinoff, a prospect which divided fans.


“BBC Worldwide Productions and the FOX Broadcasting Company have mutually agreed not to progress together with a 13-episode serialized 'Torchwood' format," said BBC Worldwide in a statement. "We are currently in discussion with several interested networks.”


As to that last part, BBC Worldwide executive vp of programming and production Jane Tranter reiterated that a U.S. version was still making progress.
"It's very much ongoing and very much alive," Tranter said.
Also, fans shouldn't hope for/worry about a U.S. edition "Doctor Who," whose recent season premiere just set a ratings record on BBC America.


"It may well be confusing to have a British Doctor and an American Doctor at the same time," she said. "There is only one Doctor, so I don't see that happening."

Let's hope a proper channel can pick this up instead!

Joss Whedon to direct The Avengers: Confirmed!

Share
Marvel is in the final stages of hiring Joss Whedon on as the director of the new Avengers movie! This has been rumored since April 1st (where many thought it was a joke) but that no longer seems to be the case.

From the article: I'm told Marvel Studios is in final negotiations for Buffy the Vampire Slayer series architect Joss Whedon to direct Marvel Studios' The Avengers. That's the fast-tracked film that would amount to an all-star team of Marvel superheros, including Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), as well as SHIELD leader Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). Other signature superheros will likely be involved, but I've listed the actors in active superhero duty.


This is pretty exciting news for Joss and Marvel fans!

Chart graphs the animal movie possibilities SyFy can make! [parody chart]

Share
If you haven't been following the @ScifiGeeks Twitter account, you haven't heard the recent joking that has been taking place at SyFy's expense. The "scifi" channel has been coming out with all sorts of BAD movies, like giant shark-octopus creatures that eat people... something like that.

Myself (and other true scifi fans) haven't been paying attention to these movies, but today, SciFi Wire, one of the blogs for SyFy posted the chart to the left - laying out all the possibilities that SyFy can make movies of.
I was confused for a second... SyFy's OWN BLOG is making fun of the movies that the channel is making?! What exactly is going on over there? Are they TRYING to make SyFy a laughing stock? 

CLICK the picture for the full chart!

What do you think?

Remember the "scifi geek reference chart" from a while back? The same people are at it again - this time comparing Avatar to... well, every other movie it copied.

Ok, they all have similar plots, but we still can enjoy them all for what they are, right?

Share
Check out the trailer for the newest Resident Evil movie - Resident Evil: Afterlife. It looks very action packed (no surprise) but also scifi based.
