Know there's a good few sci-fi fans on here, so starting this thread for all things scifi. Books, audiobooks, films, TV, whatever.

Will start off with this...

First Trailer For Arthur C. Clarke's Childhood's End TV Miniseries - io9.com/first-trailer-...

I haven't read the book, but it gets rave reviews - www.amazon.co.uk/Child...

Just downloaded the audiobook there for the car. There seems to be a full cast version available. Can provide links, if anyone is interested.

“Mars,” from Ron Howard and Brian Grazer’s Imagine Entertainment and RadicalMedia, is the centerpiece of Nat Geo’s new effort to field selected heavyweight scripted series. The series promises to blend documentary, CG and narrative material into a sweeping saga of exploration and discovery that is set in the future and the present day.

Comic-Con 2016: Luc Besson Revealed the First ‘Valerian’ Footage and It’s Stunning Sci-Fi

This pretty much sealed the deal seeing as The Fifth Element is nothing short of perfect.. "It was all impressive, even with the temp effects, and it all felt like an expanded, extreme sibling to The Fifth Element" collider.com/comic-con...

Would have been up for that Aliens night, but I'll be in London, post Bjork gig. Ah well, a worthy reason for missing it.

Where's the Valerian footage ffs?

0 |

id rather wait for the trailer, cellphone recorded show reels from comic con are shite tbf, but the fact that Luc Besson is making a $180mil sci fi movie is fucking incredible news

Aliens ranks as one of the worst movies I've seen...why would they not show Alien....:(

0 |

Oh BTW....Matey is working on Bladerunner 2 in Budapest at the mo......says it's pretty gritty, dark and violent......sounds good to me.

0 |

One of the worst films you've ever seen, really?

0 |

Yep sorry Babou.....I thought it was absolutely awful I'm afraid.....like a bad gung ho comedy 'America Fuck Yea' show....it just didn't grab me the way the first one did.

0 |

But, Aliens!

0 |

LOL...I know.....'It's Aliens' .......but it was unforgivable crap as were any subsequent sequels.

0 |

Game over man, game over.

0 |

Fuck Yea!...oh and I kinda fell out with Sigourney after she lowered her standards and did the sequels......silly girl

0 |

look like they are set to ignore 3 & Resurrection for the new Alien movie...

Alien is one of the best horror movie made.
Aliens is one of the best action movies ever made.

Oh come on....It was completely formulaic....but hey thats what makes life so rich...we can all have completely different views on things. I hated it...no biggie....move on. As for being one of the most quoted movies ever....are you sure? It's not even in the top 100! Or perhaps you mean most quoted amongst a particular subset of quirky fans ;)

1 |
