Hello, and welcome to the first SciFiNow of 2019! Yes, we finally said goodbye to 2018 and now that we’ve gorged on festive TV, indulged in all the box-sets we didn’t have time for until that dead zone between Boxing Day and New Year’s Eve, and now that 2018 has been fully digested in all the best-of lists you could ever ask for, it’s time to shake off the crumbs and gaze bright-eyed into the year ahead. As you already know, it’s a new year full of new possibilities, grand finales and, at a conservative estimate, roughly 750,000 films, TV shows, books, comics and games to get excited about and we’re already off to a hell of a start. We report from the set of Star Trek: Discovery’s second season to find…

meet the team

Q. Which 2019 film/TV series are you most excited for? Jonathan Hatfull Editor A. Godzilla: King Of The Monsters That second trailer was absolutely glorious. Give me those kaiju. Abigail Chandler Deputy Editor A. His Dark Materials I’ve been waiting decades for a good adaptation, and the BBC one looks like it could be a belter. Poppy-Jay Palmer News Editor A.

“it’s an apocalypse western”

“IT’S OUR INTERPRETATION and you have to make changes to it that are arguably probably going to turn off some fans of the book,” explains Mark-Paul Gosselaar. The Nineties icon stars in the TV adaptation of Justin Cronin’s trilogy of books as Agent Brad Wolgast and tells us. “I’m a huge fan of the books and I was under the initial impression that you have to shoot the adaptation word-for-word on screen. The original pilot was bookended by the future – we wiped that out because it just didn’t make sense. What they decided to do was take the book and slow it down and really expose why Project Noah was created, how it went wrong and give you backstories of the characters that are in books two and three.” “WE’VE…

RESIDENT EVIL: EXTINCTION The third film in the expanding franchise envisioned the T-Virus zombie juice consuming the entire world. This one goes full ridiculous with Alice clones, a Mad Max-style apocalyptic wasteland and the casting of hip-hop princess Ashanti. OUTBREAK Dustin Hoffman stars in a film that just wouldn’t get made today but made big bucks in the Nineties about an African monkey who infects California with a deadly virus. There are loads of helicopters, Patrick Dempsey plays a lousy deadbeat called Jimbo, and Morgan Freeman even turns up to say: “God help us all.” 28 DAYS LATER Danny Boyle’s film may have had people confused with its ‘infected and definitely not zombies’ spiel but with a screenplay written by Alex Garland and leading man Cillian Murphy turning in an outstanding performance this is a…

crisis on infinite arrowverses

WHAT CRISIS? Back in 1985, comic book writer Marv Wolfman and artist George Pérez had a neat solution for how to deal with DC’s bloated and convoluted continuity – scrap a load of it by blowing up the multiverse. At the time DC had multiple timelines running across multiple dimensions, and it was all far too confusing for the writers, let alone the readers. So Wolfman and Pérez crafted Crisis On Infinite Earths, a huge limited series in which the forces of good rallied against the Anti-Monitor, who was gobbling up universes like they were Skittles. The heroes won, of course, but at the expense of some pretty major characters – most notably Supergirl and the Barry Allen Flash. Multiple universes were condensed into one, complicated character back stories were re-written and…

Yes indeed, The Dark Crystal is still as much of a classic today as it ever was; Netflix and The Jim Henson Company have wrangled one hell of a voice cast for the streaming service’s upcoming sequel series, The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance. Leading the show are Taron Egerton, Anya Taylor-Joy and Nathalie Emmanuel as Rian, Brea and Deet, three Gelfling that are taken on a whirlwind adventure to save the world of Thra. The rest of the voice cast is made up of a stellar mix of stars, from Helena Bonham-Carter and Mark Strong to Andy Samberg and Keegan-Michael Key. Read the full cast list in the box-out on the right. In a press release, Cindy Holland, the vice president of original series at Netflix, said: “To match the stunning…
