Paul McGann Doesn’t Expect Another Return To Doctor Who

McGannOne of the best parts of Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary celebrations last year was the unexpected return of a Doctor few expected ever to see on their TV screens again. The Night of the Doctor minisode not only gave fans something they’d been clamoring to see — the Eighth Doctor’s regeneration — but it set up the Day of the Doctor special and gave actor Paul McGann one more chance to step into the time lord’s shoes. But as well received as McGann’s surprise return was, he’s not holding out hope that he’ll ever return to the role again.

In an interview with Doctor Who Magazine, McGann is honest and pragmatic about the fact that, while he enjoyed getting to play the Doctor again, it was the first time anyone from Doctor Who had invited him back to be a part of the show, and he doesn’t expect that to change going forward. McGann says:


The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Adds Game Of Thrones Star Gwendoline Christie

Gwendoline ChristieThe third and fourth installment of The Hunger GamesMockingjay Part 1 and 2, respectively—recently lost a key player with the tragic death of Philip Seymour Hoffman. Now, the final chapter in the adaptation of Suzanne Collin’s young adult trilogy has lost another piece. Lily Rabe recently bowed out of Part 2, as Commander Lyme, but multiple sources report that the role has just been filled by Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie.

Be careful, there are SPOILERS for the Mockingjay movies beyond this point.


Revolution Star Talks The This Week’s Shocking Death

revolutionNBC’s Revolution has never been opposed to killing off a major character or two when they feel the need, especially this season. This year they’ve embraced the inherent ridiculousness of the show’s premise and upped the crazy factor exponentially, what with the brain washing, the kid killing, the conspiracies, and the nanotech running wild over everything. With the most recent episode, “Austin City Limits,” Revolution takes out one of their biggest characters yet, and one of the key players chimes in on what it means, and how it will impact the series moving forward.

If you haven’t watched this past Wednesday’s episode, stop reading, for the SPOILERS that lie ahead are great and many.


Dredd 2: Karl Urban Says They’re Working Hard On Making It Happen

Far be it for me to begin a 2000 A.D.-related story crassly, but I thought the only time I’d hear the words “Dredd 2” and “hard” in a sentence would be in my fan fiction stories, which I only write while wearing a helmet. And yet here Karl Urban is, telling the world that people are working very, very hard to bring a Dredd sequel to fans. If anybody knows what happens to people who lie about such insanely important things, it should be a Judge, right?

Let’s all take a moment to reflect on how awesome it is that not only is Karl Urban giving Dredd fans a shout-out through 2000 A.D.‘s YouTube page, but he’s also telling people eyes-to-eyes that he, screenwriter Alex Garland (also of 28 Days Later fame), and DNA films are trying to get this film made. So no, he isn’t just telling a convention crowd that he’d love to see a sequel made, and he’s not just saying he hopes the fan support will be enough. He’s saying they’re working hard on it.


Blood Glacier Trailer Oozes Gore And Awesome Practical Effects

This is my new favorite thing in all of the world. First off, this movie is called Blood Glacier—a far superior name than the previous one, The Station—so right there you have my attention. Many of us are a sucker for this sort of B-movie moniker. Factor in this new trailer—which has zero words, only screams and guttural noises—that makes the movie look like a crazier, schlockier version of John Carpenter’s The Thing, and you have my full, undivided attention.

IFC Midnight is responsible for unleashing director Marvin Kren’s genre extravaganza on the public. They’ve been on a roll lately, delivering Almost Human—the crazy horror version, not the J.J. Abrams, futuristic police procedural—and alien abduction drama Alien Abduction.


Jurassic World Arrests Judy Greer

Judy GreerJudy Greer is most known for playing sarcastic, over the top characters like Kitty on the gone-too-soon Fox sitcom Arrested Development, and sassy best friend types in tons of other shows and films. She’s also putting together one hell of a string of science fiction movies. This summer she’ll take to the trees as an ape named Cornelia in Matt Reeves’ Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, next year she’ll visit Tomorrowland with George Clooney, and now she’s added a tussle with dinosaurs to her docket, as she has joined the cast of Jurassic World.

The fourth installment in the Jurassic Park franchise, The Wrap reports that Greer is joining a cast that includes Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, Irrfan Khan, Jake Johnson, and Omar Sy. Original cast member B.D. Wong, who played one of the scientists, Dr. Henry Wu, on the island off of Costa Rica, will return for this latest dino adventure, and Law & Order: Criminal Intent star Vincent D’Onofrio will reportedly play the central villain. Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) is handling the directing duties, and wrote the script with his writing partner Derek Connolly. Steven Spielberg will even be around in a producer capacity. All in all this sounds like one hell of a party, though we’re still holding out hope that some more members of the original cast, *cough, Jeff Goldblum, cough,* will be back for another go round.
