The Walking Dead Gender Swapped This Important Character

Fans of Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead comics are well aware that while AMC’s hit adaptation of the title follows roughly the same path laid out in the source material, they’re not afraid to diverge in important ways. Some characters still alive in the comics are long dead in the show, others play drastically different roles, and if you watched last night’s episode of the zombie drama, “Remember,” you noticed that one key character looks very, very different from the comics.

SPOILERS lurk beyond this point if you’re not caught up with The Walking Dead.

Alfred Bester’s The Stars My Destination May Be Coming To The Big Screen

The Stars My DestinationAlfred Bester may not be as well known to the mainstream as his contemporaries like Ray Bradbury, Robert Heinlein, Arthur C. Clarke, and Isaac Asimov, but hardcore sci-fi fans are more than familiar with the man and his work. The guy won the first ever Hugo Award in 1953. Unlike those notable writers, however, Bester’s work has never really been adapted, though he did do some TV writing in the 1950s, as well as lots of comic book work. People have tried to adapt his work from time to time, and now it’s looking like one of his greatest novels, The Stars My Destination (also known as Tiger! Tiger!), may be headed for the big screen.

Deadline reports that Mary Parent, a producer on the recent The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water, has her hands on the project for Paramount Pictures. Just in case that doesn’t fill you with tons of confidence, don’t worry, Parent also worked on Pacific Rim, Godzilla, Pleasantville, and many other notable films.


Found Footage Sci-Fi The Rendlesham UFO Incident Finds A New Trailer

Found footage genre movies are a hit and miss proposition at best. It’s a stylistic approach that can be used well, certainly, but it’s overused to be sure. For every good offering, you get what feels like dozens of lackluster efforts. But that’s not going to stop people from adopting this approach, and we’ve got another one, The Rendlesham UFO Incident, on the way. Check out this new trailer and see for yourself if this is something you want to watch.


Watch Daniel Bruhl Build A Robot Child In This Eva Trailer

We’re about to be up to our waists, maybe higher, in artificially intelligent robot movies. Neill Blomkamp’s Chappie drops next week, Alex Garland’s directorial debut Ex Machina hits in April, and Marvel gets in on the act in May with Avengers: Age of Ultron wreaking havoc all over the globe. While those films are all getting relatively wide releases (Age of Ultron’s release is obviously going to be massive), Eva, a similarly themed film is flying in under the radar, but looks no less intriguing than the others. And a new trailer has surfaced for the film.

Daniel Bruhl (Inglorious Basterds, A Most Wanted Man, and he’ll also appear in Captain America: The Winter Soldier) plays a near-future engineer who, while working on an artificially intelligent robot child, reunites with his former lover, who is now shacking up with his estranged brother. From this trailer you get a good sense of the film’s mixture of hard science fiction and interpersonal, familial, relationship drama.


Jurassic World Introduces All Of The Dinosaur Attractions

Jurassic WorldDuring production, Jurassic World had a slew of problems with security. A number of major plot points leaked out, and were then confirmed by those involved, most notably director Colin Trevorrow. Though Vincent D’Onofrio assures fans we still don’t anywhere near the whole story yet, since these breaches, the film has taken measures to get out in front of things. One strategy they’ve employed is their viral website, gradually revealing more and more bits of information. Through this outlet we’ve seen security footage from the park, met D’Onofrio’s sinister character, and now we’re getting our first look at many of the dinosaurs we’ll see in the new film.

Jurassic World, the fourth film in the Jurassic Park franchise, finds the park of the title now open and fully operational. It’s the biggest tourist attraction in the world, and since some people are never satisfied, the money people commission a new dinosaur made from the DNA of a T-rex, Velociraptor, snake, and cuttlefish. If you’ve ever seen a movie before, you know that’s a bad, bad idea, and this vicious new creation escapes and wreaks havoc. Chris Pratt’s character, Owen, along with a trained team of Velociraptors, has to help rein this new beast in.


Construction On The First Hyperloop Set To Begin Next Year, Get The Details Here

HyperloopSci-fi is full to overflowing with various new modes of transport, from interstellar ships to teleporters to hoverboards. While many of these are unlikely to become a reality, especially anytime soon (I still have hope that we’ll get a decent hoverboard by the end of this year, after all, Back to the Future 2 promised), one futuristic mass transit system, the Hyperloop, is inching towards us.

Next year, construction is scheduled to begin on the world’s first Hyperloop. While it won’t be able to quite reach the 800 miles per hour that is the ultimate target speed for this kind of technology, the five-mile track in the planned community of Quay Valley, California, this is the biggest step forward for this potential new transport system.
