Ten Minutes in SciFi TV:
- Heroes Redemption– This trailer looks phenomenal. The Heroes premiere is Monday, September 21, 2009 (2 hour)
- Herne said too many plotlines crammed into 1st show, too obtuse for a 1st ep. I rate it ★★★☆☆ 3 out of 5 stars. I would have to agree with this.
- StartledRhino: Did you like Defying Gravity? It is extremely light scifi (if it even is scifi) with lots of sex. I missed Virtuality, so I can’t compare.
- You voted – we listened. For the first time ever on Blu-ray, here are extended versions of your two favorite episodes from the celebrated Stargate Atlantis™ series – without commercial interruption, and in packaging you designed!
- The exhilarating, feature-length pilot episode, Rising, sends a brilliant team of scientists through a Stargate to the legendary city of Atlantis. But not only is the city about to be engulfed by ocean water, an enemy appears who threatens everyone in the Pegasus Galaxy! And in the white-knuckle, lengthened Enemy at the Gate from Season 5, as the team tries to disempower Wraith hive ships, the Wraith discover coordinates that will allow them to destroy Earth!
- Battlestar’s Michael Hogan to Guest Star in ‘Dollhouse’
- BTW Slice of Scifi has an interview with him. Check it out
- Part 2 of the fan made Starship Farragut: The Animates Series episode was just released. What an homage to the classic animated series. Farragut is truly bringing classic Trek now!
- First impressions on Defying Gravity. The second part airs this Sunday; my guess if you missed it they’ll reair the first part ahead of time
- The Surrogate by Disney – This movie has potential. Make sure you check out the trailer.
- Star Wars Concert tour.
- Star Wars Uncut
- Rob Marshall Helming Fourth “Pirates”? “Chicago” and “Nine” director Rob Marshall is in talks to helm the next “Pirates of the Caribbean” for Walt Disney Pictures reports Variety. Original “Pirates” trilogy helmer Gore Verbinski hasn’t committed to the project and with the studio adamant on getting the project rolling by next Easter, this move to another director comes as no surprise. Jerry Bruckheimer will return as producer and Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow, though pretty much everything else on the project remains in flux.
- Avatar – Release date: Dec. 18, 2009. Avatar is the story of an ex-Marine who finds himself thrust into hostilities on an alien planet filled with exotic life forms. As an “avatar,” a human mind in an alien body, he finds himself torn between two worlds in a desperate fight for his own survival and that of the indigenous people. Following is an edited version of our exclusive Q&A with Cameron about his film. Cast: Sam Worthington … Jake Sully, Sigourney Weaver … Dr. Grace Augustine, Michelle Rodriguez (From Lost) … Trudy Chacon, Zoe Saldana (Uhura from the new Star Trek) … Neytiri, Joel Moore (from Bones) … Norm Spellman, CCH Pounder (Mrs. Frederick from Warehouse 13) … Moha

Ten Minute in SciFi DVD/Video:
You’d think that Eoin Colfer, whose Artemis Fowlfantasy novels have sold nearly 20 million copies, wouldn’t have a care in the world. But now that’s he’s written And Another Thing, the sixth book in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy franchise, a series which has sold nearly 15 million copies, the Irish author is finding it difficult to follow Douglas Adams’ famous instructions to, well, you know—”don’t panic.”
“I’m still conflicted,” said Colfer about stepping into Adams’ shoes when I interviewed him at the San Diego Comic-Con. “It’s not something where you make up your mind and then say, ‘Well, that’s the right decision,’ and then put all your doubts behind you. Every day I think about it, I worry. But the reason I decided to do it was, I actually sat down and did pros and cons, and the pros were, I thought if I don’t do it, someone else will do it, and they might not love it as much as me.
“Also, Jane and Polly [Adams’ wife and daughter] wanted me to do it, which was very important. They were the ones who convinced me. And I honestly think that I can kind of bring something to it and not try to be Douglas … but maybe people will read this, and then they’ll go back and read the other five, which is the whole point.”
