Why Is It Always Chess In Sci-Fi & Fantasy?

Why Is It Always Chess In Sci-Fi & Fantasy?
Once again, a genre show has used chess as a metaphor – this time it was the latest episode of Outlander (you can see our review here). Sci-Fi and fantasy loves chess because of the whole dark versus light vibe. There are also pawn and checkmate metaphors galore to have fun with. It reminded me of a daft little project I did on Facebook page last year. Some of you may have seen this before but hey, it took a while to put together so I thought it... 

Blade Runner 2 Release Date Brought Forward

Blade Runner 2 Release Date Brought Forward
The release date for Blade Runner 2 has moved, as we’re now going to see it sooner than we expected. Alcon Entertainment has announced that the sequel will now be released on 6 October 2017 rather than 12 January 12 2018. After a 36 year wait a few months barely makes much difference but, hey, we appreciate it. The film, which is being directed by Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Prisoners),  will star Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Robin Wright and... 

Dave Bautista Teases Blade Runner 2 Role

Dave Bautista Teases Blade Runner 2 Role
Dave Bautista, the wrestler-turned-actor who surprised everybody by how good he was as Drax in Guardians Of The Galaxy (and then was pretty much wasted in SPECTRE) has posted a pic on Facebook that seems to be hinting pretty heavily that he’ll be appearing in Blade Runner 2. The origami unicorn is the giveaway. “I can’t wait to share some really exciting news…” he added in the message. So expect an official announcement soon. Last week...

Why Edward James Olmos Loves MCM Comic Cons
Edward James Olmos is part of sci-fi royalty thanks to roles in two of the greatest landmarks in the genre: Blade Runner and Battlestar Galactica. But that doesn’t mean he’s become disconncted from the fans; in fact, if anything the reverse is true. This weekend at MCM London Comic Con he delivered a typically entertaining and down-to-earth panel, then also gave a press call, in the middle of which he was asked what he liked best about coming... 

Ridley Scott Reveals Prometheus 2’s Title

Ridley Scott Reveals Prometheus 2’s Title
Just a few days (and a few press interviews for The Martian) after stating that it could take four Prometheus movies before the series brings audiences up to the events in Alien, director Ridley Scott has revealed in an interview that Prometheus 2 will be called Alien: Paradise Lost. Which strikes us as a little odd if we’re still possibly three movies away from Alien. Maybe after the decidedly underwhelming critical (and fan) reception given to...

There his is, trying to promote his new movie Crave, which was shown at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) this past weekend, and all journalists want to really talk to him about is a movie he’s not scheduled to even start shooting until summer 2016 – Blade Runner 2. Yesterday we ran the story (see here) about how well aware Villeneuve is that Blade Runner fans will be waiting their knives out. No we have...

Blade Runner 2 Director On His Hopes And Fears For The Sequel
The man with the poison chalice of helming Blade Runner 2, Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Sicario), has admitted to Collider that initially he thought the idea of sequel to the SF classic was a bad idea: “When I heard that Ridley Scott wanted to do another movie in the Blade Runner universe, at first my reaction was that it’s a fantastic idea, but it may be a very bad idea. I’m among the hardcore fans of Blade Runner. Blade Runner is one of...
