Alan Tudyk To Write Con Man Spin-Off Comic Spectrum

Alan Tudyk To Write Con Man Spin-Off Comic Spectrum
  It’s meta-madness we tell you. Meta madness. But in a roundabout way characters played by Nathan Fillion and Adam Tudyk in a space opera will be returning… kind of. Sorta. In a comic spin-off from a show that never existed. Confused? Maybe the only way to tell this story is chronologically. Once upon a time, there was a show spaceship show called Firefly. It was cancelled early. It became a cult classic. Alan Tudyk played the pilot, Wash;...

NASA Makes A Geek World Out Of Pluto’s Moon
The meek can inherit the Earth, but the geeks are inheriting a moon. With a whole load of new photographic reference to pore over following the New Horizons fly-by NASA is in the process of naming regions of Pluto’s moon Charon and sci-fi references are the theme. According to IAU rules, Pluto’s various geographical landmarks must be names after names drawn from underworld mythology, resulting in the Cthulu regio (sic) and the Balrog macula...

Joss Whedon’s “Much Ado About Nothing” Trailer
As some will know, while making The Avengers, Joss Whedon also made a much smaller movie project on the side: an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. One can’t deny that Whedon and Shakespeare are a match made in heaven, both being kings of storytelling and dialogue (who could forget Whedon’s usage of “mewling quim” in The Avengers?). Much Ado About Nothing brings those two worlds together. Given the shock announcement...

Humanity’s End Review

Humanity’s End Review
It’s always hard knowing where to start when talking about a film like Humanity’s End. The short version is that the film is a very ambitious indie “Space Opera” that tackles some very tough themes, and has a rare but appreciated focus on its female characters that isn’t often seen in the genre. The story of Humanity’s End is in some ways a classic space opera (huge scale, seemingly unwinnable war and a focus on interpersonal...
