It might not feel like it at the time of writing, but spring is just around the corner. Yes indeed, the cold weather is starting to be driven back and the sun will be coming out soon enough. Oh, don’t get us wrong, we don’t think it’s ever going to stop raining, but we’ll take the glorious sunshine of Shazam! as a stand-in for a little while. Yes, that was a tortured and tenuous link to our coverage of DC’s big bright comedy which promises to be their lightest movie yet. Shazam! certainly seems like it’s operating in a very different universe to the murky grimdark of Batman Vs Superman and the cast and director told us that this is pure wish fulfilment magic. There is something wonderful about the idea…

game over

WE ALL KNEW this day would come. Book readers might be more unsure, but fans of the TV adaptation of Game Of Thrones always knew that one day it would come to an end – no doubt in a spectacular bloodbath of fire and ice. And now here we are, preparing to say goodbye to the Starks, Lannisters, Targaryens, and all the other families largely wiped out along the way (House Baratheon and House Tyrell: We salute you). It’s going to be emotional. Season Seven ended with the Starks and the Targaryens united (along with a motley crew of others) against the White Walkers, but unaware that Cersei Lannister plans on betraying them, and that the Night King’s newly-acquired Ice Dragon has just blown up The Wall. It also left the…

he who controls the spice, controls the universe

Over the last couple of months the casting of Denis Villeneuve’s new take on Dune has gone from “hmm, yes, that’s a good choice” to “is anybody not going to star in this?” The director of Blade Runner 2049 has assembled the kind of starry line-up that most filmmakers can only dream of and there’s every chance that the number of actors will have doubled by the time you read this (David Dastmalchian was cast as Piter De Vries just as we went to print)... TIMOTHEE CHALAMET IS PAUL ATREIDES The bright-eyed hero will be played by Call Me By Your Name’s Chalamet, making his first excursion into genre since he broke out (he had a small role in Interstellar). Previously played by Kyle MacLachlan, Paul is the heir to House Atreides…

dick miller 1928-2019

There are few actors who create such a feeling of nostalgic goodwill with their mere presence as Dick Miller. He was the definitive “that guy!” actor, so much so that the 2014 documentary about him was titled That Guy Dick Miller. Beloved by filmmakers and fans, his career began in 1955 and he nabbed a great leading role in Roger Corman’s 1959 A Bucket Of Blood as murderous artist Walter Paisely. “HE WAS THE KIND OF ACTOR AUDIENCES AND FILMMAKERS LOVED” While the lead roles may have been few and far between in the decades following, Miller was never far from our screens. He cut his teeth working with Roger Corman, telling us in 2013 that “I think the thing to take away with Roger Corman is that we never did a…

twitter tributes

JOE DANTE “I’m devastated to report that one of my best friends and most treasured collaborators has passed away. I ‘grew up’ (kinda) watching Dick Miller in movies from the Fifties on and was thrilled to have him in my first movie for @RogerCorman… We hit it off and every script thereafter I always looked for a role for Dick – not just because he was my friend but because I loved watching him act! But he leaves behind over 100 performances, a bio and a doc – not bad for a guy who hardly ever enjoyed a starring role.” EDGAR WRIGHT “RIP Dick Miller, surely the king of character actors. A friendly, funny face in Gremlins (1 and 2), Piranha, the original Little Shop Of Horrors, Not Of This Earth, After Hours…

what’s next for the star wars universe?

EPISODE IX JJ Abrams’ closing chapter of the current trilogy will be arriving on 19 December 2019. CASSIAN ANDOR SERIES Rogue One’s Diego Luna will be reprising his role as the Rebellion spy in this live action series for Disney Plus, set before the events of Rogue One (for reasons that will be obvious to anyone who has seen the film). Whether any other Rogue One characters will be joining the series remains to be seen. RIAN JOHNSON TRILOGY Disney were so impressed with Johnson’s The Last Jedi that he’s been handed the reins of his own trilogy, which will be separate from the ‘Skywalker saga’. WEISS AND BENIOFF MOVIE SERIES Game Of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss have their next project lined up – a new series of Star Wars movies.…
