23 hours ago

Den Of Geek Jul 22, 2016

Justin Lin's Star Trek Beyond in out now in the UK and the USA. What did you think of it?

Star Trek Beyond is in cinemas now, marking the first film in the rebooted ‘Kelvin’ timeline that J.J. Abrams didn’t direct. Justin Lin of Fast & Furious fame took over, working from a script by Doug Jung and Scotty himself, Simon Pegg

The Defenders trailer

As well as new teaser trailers for Luke Cage and Iron Fist, and the confirmation of Daredevil season 3, San Diego Comic-Con has given us another treat from the Marvel/Netflix camp: our first teasing glimpse at the huge team-up series, The Defenders.

The Defenders release date

The Defenders is expected to land in 2017, but we don't have an exact date just yet. We know it's a top priority, though, with other shows being moved around to make from it. »

21 July 2016 9:15 PM, PDT

Nick Harley Jul 22, 2016

Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's Gary Sanchez Productions will produce a new untitled comedy with help from Paramount pictures.

Paramount and Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Gary Sanchez Productions are teaming up for a new untitled FBI comedy.

Coming from a script by Lauryn Kahn (I’m In Love With the DJ), the project is said to revolve around two co-ed FBI agents forced to go undercover as a married couple to infiltrate the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and reveal a sweat shop conspiracy. Sounds like Mr. & Mrs. Smith meets Zoolander

Behind the camera will be Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates director Jake Szymanski.  Szymanski got his start creating Funny or Die material for Ferrell and McKay, while Kahn started as McKay’s assistant. Gary Sanchez Productions seems to be keeping it in the family.

21 July 2016 8:15 PM, PDT

Tony Sokol Jul 22, 2016

The rain enters the soil. The river enters the sea. So Teen Wolf runs to a predestined end, after season 6...

MTV's Teen Wolf will end after season 6. Teen Wolf showrunner Jeff Davis made the announcement during a San Diego Comic-Con panel.

“I know we’re sad about it and it’s bittersweet but we’re so happy to be able to come to Comic-Con and share it with you guys,” Davis told the assembled mob, readying torches.

The Teen Wolf panel at Sdcc on Thursday included stars Holland Roden, Dylan Sprayberry, Cody Christian, Khylin Rhambo and Tyler Posey, who has played alpha wolf Scott McCall since the series launched in June 2011.

"This is it — this is the regime that we built," Posey told fans. "I just want to let everybody know from everybody here's heart that this has been the biggest movement that we've ever been a part of. »

The Man In The High Castle season 2 trailer

21 July 2016 8:15 PM, PDT

Chris Longo Jul 22, 2016

At San Diego Comic-Con, we got the first look at Amazon's The Man in the High Castle season 2.

This time last year, the anticipation was building for release of The Man in the High Castle’s first season after the pilot set viewing records. Fans has to await for months between the pilot and the release of the full 10-episode run on Amazon Prime Video, and the cast was mum on spoiling an key details on the adaptation of legendary sci-fi author Philip K. Dick’s alternate history of the aftermath of World War II.

Absent season one showrunner Frank Spotnitz, who left the series in May, the cast came to San Diego Comic-Con with a little more to share, and a first look at Man in the High Castle season 2.

Watch the first trailer here:

No release was announced, but all signs point to a late 2016 release. »

Marvel's Daredevil: Netflix renews for season 3

21 July 2016 7:15 PM, PDT

Den Of Geek Jul 22, 2016

It might take a while, but Marvel's Daredevil season 3 will definitely happen on Netflix...

Marvel's Daredevil season 2 was met with tremendous acclaim by fans, not least because Jon Bernthal's The Punisher and Elodie Yung's Elektra really pushed Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock out of his comfort zone.

The big question was when (not so much if) we'll get to see Daredevil season 3. After the first season, it took a week or two for the announcement that the second season was confirmed. Things took a little longer this time.

The news was confirmed at San Diego Comic-Con during the Luke Cage panel. Check out the teaser...

This Savage Song heading to the big screen

21 July 2016 7:15 PM, PDT

Elizabeth Rayne Jul 22, 2016

Sony will soon bring the monsters in Victoria Schwab’s critically acclaimed Ya novel This Savage Song to the movies.

Violence is a monster in itself - but imagine if it literally morphed into one.

This Savage Song, the dystopian Ya bestseller by Victoria Schwab that transforms the forces of violence into real live terrors that emerge out of the shadows and stalk the earth, is now being turned into a movie. Sony Pictures has just claimed the rights to bring the unspeakable things that lurk in Schwab’s startlingly metaphorical novel to the big screen. 

The savage city inherited by Kate Harker and August Flynn is divided by ethical issues as much as supernatural forces. Human violence has bred swarms of monsters that can snatch away souls with a riff of music. When Kate is expelled from boarding school (for the sixth time), she schemes to »

Voltron: Legendary Defender - season 2 confirmed

21 July 2016 5:15 PM, PDT

Den Of Geek Jul 22, 2016

Later this year, fresh episodes of Netflix's Voltron: Legendary Defender series will arrive online...

As revealed at San Diego Comic-Con and confirmed by the official Voltron Twitter account, season 2 of Voltron: Legendary Defender is coming to Netflix, "late 2016".

There was no word about what the content of the next season would be, but it's safe to assume it'll pick up right where season one left off with the Voltron pilots hurtling through space and seperated from one another. As story editor Tim Hedrick commented,

If they never got separated, then you'll never get that good feeling when they come back together.

Perhaps we'll have an arc where the team will learn more secrets of Voltron throughout the universe? Will Pidge and Lance discover their lions' special extra abilities?

A special sneak preview of the second season was also shown for attendees to the panel along with »

No Man's Sky developer accused of using unlicensed superformula

21 July 2016 3:15 PM, PDT

Matthew Byrd Jul 22, 2016

Due out next month, space sim No Man's Sky generates its universe with an unlicensed equation, a company claims...

A Dutch development company has accused No Man's Sky developer Hello Games of using one of their patented computer formulas without express permission, according to a report by Ars Technica. 

Genicap, a software development company, has been working on a computer formula dubbed the Superformula which - according to the company's website - is capable of taking "a single equation that uses only a few variables to create an infinite number of supershapes." This formula was patented by the company in 2004 and now they are claiming that Hello Games is using it without a proper license. 

In an interview with the Telegraaf, a representative of Genicap claims that they have never licensed the use of their Superformula to Hello Games and that they "certainly do not want to stop the launch, »

Justin Lin interview: Star Trek Beyond, Mc Hammer

21 July 2016 10:08 AM, PDT

Ryan Lambie Jul 22, 2016

As Star Trek Beyond launches in the UK, we talk to its director about making the sequel and how Mc Hammer helped his career...

Director Justin Lin has come a long way since his debut feature, Better Luck Tomorrow in 2002. Taking on the ailing Fast & Furious franchise with Tokyo Drift in 2006, he managed to transform it into an unlikely multiplex behemoth, with each sequel outperforming the last since Fast & Furious in 2009. Lin's reputation is such that he's been given the keys to the Star Trek franchise, taking over from Roberto Orci (who in turn took over from Jj Abrams) during Star Trek Beyond's turbulent pre-production.

We caught up with Mr Lin next to a bowl of fruit in a plush hotel room, where we picked his brains about gravity-defying cinematography, his thougths on the longevity of the Trek franchise, and why his career owes a debt »

Mr. Robot season 2 episode 3 review: Kernel Panic

21 July 2016 8:15 AM, PDT

Alec Bojalad Jul 21, 2016

Elliot absolutely loses his mind…you know, more than usual. And the case against fsociety takes a big step forward...

This review contains spoilers.

2.3 Kernel Panic

A few years ago, my laptop experienced a kernel panic. I’ll never forget the name of the particular disaster because 1. it turned my very expensive laptop into a brick and 2. “kernel panic” sounded phonetically like “colonel panic” and the idea of a deranged colonel wreaking havoc upon my hard drive delighted me to no end even as I sheepishly handed my laptop over to the Genius bar to fix.

They did fix it, thank God, but prior to that moment it seemed like the situation was unredeemable. A kernel panic is a fatal internal error, as Elliot helpfully tells us. It means that shit is just fucked up almost beyond repair and it’s your fault. In my case, it »

Video: Alan Partridge announces new book, slams modern TV

21 July 2016 3:34 AM, PDT

Rob Leane Jul 22, 2016

A-ha! Alan Partridge is set to make yet another comeback, with a new book called Nomad...

Steve Coogan is back once again as Alan Partridge, to announce a new book called Nomad. It's the follow-up to 2011's I, Partridge: We Need To Talk About Alan, and a memoir that promises, in the words of Alan himself, to "shine a light on the nooks of the nation and the crannies of myself."

Here's the video clip of Mr Partridge announcing the book, where he also takes the time to slam modern TV detectives and Game Of Thrones, courtesy of The Independent... 

"Nomad brings you the story of a one man walk I undertook to try to learn about who I really am," Partridge explains in the video. "I was able to use transport when essential but I set myself one caveat: no unlicensed mini-cabs."

Here's what the cover looks like. »

Geeks Vs Loneliness: be excellent to each other

21 July 2016 3:09 AM, PDT

Simon Brew Jul 22, 2016

At a time in the world where things aren't great, can you help us showcase moments of positivity and goodness?

A bit of a change for Geeks Vs Loneliness this week. I think it's a bit of an odd time in the world, and it seems right to talk about that, and if there's anything we can do.

The last four weeks, whichever side of the assorted big and small arguments that have been going on, have not really shown the world in a great light, I don’t think. Be it politics, blockbuster movies, cultural divisions or social media, it’s as if a big magnifying glass has been held up to human beings, and there’s been some realisation that we might all be different. As if that’s a threat or a problem.

The Bfg review

21 July 2016 2:51 AM, PDT

Rob Leane Published Date  Friday, July 22, 2016 - 06:22

Not only is The Bfg Steven Spielberg’s first firmly-aimed-at-families directorial project since his 2011 Tintin film, but it’s also an adaptation of a beloved Roald Dhal story, Spielberg’s final collaboration with his late E.T. screenwriter Melissa Mathison, and a reunion with Mark Rylance, who nabbed an Oscar for his previous Spielberg team-up, Bridge Of Spies.

So does The Bfg live up to all those anticipation-inciting elements? Well, yes and no. One big positive is that there’s certainly a hefty heart here, as you’d expect from the writer/director duo that had audiences sobbing over a puppet alien back in 1982. 

From the minute that Rylance’s eponymous Big Friendly Giant plucks Ruby Barnhill’s insomniac orphan Sophie from her bed, a heart-warming friendship is born. What begins as prickly bantering develops into genuine affection, as the Bfg shows Sophie »

Robot Wars: revisiting the original show

21 July 2016 2:05 AM, PDT

Aaron Birch Jul 22, 2016

Ahead of the return of Robot Wars to BBC Two, we revisit the classic original run of the show...

3. 2. 1. Activate!

In early February 1998 a new TV game show surfaced on BBC Two, one that was about as different as anything we'd ever seen. It didn't feature general knowledge questions or sprints around a super market, it was equal parts testosterone and techno-geek chic. It was, of course, Robot Wars and it would quickly become one of the most popular programmes on TV.

Before appearing on UK TV, Robot Wars was first dreamt up over the pond. The story goes that a Lucasfilm-employed toy designer by the name of Marc Thorpe came up with the idea in 1992 while failing to build a remote control vacuum cleaner. The results ended up being less about cleanliness, and more about carnage. This unexpected turn out made Thorpe realise that radio controlled »

Pretty Little Liars: the case of the missing Alison Dilaurentis

21 July 2016 12:03 AM, PDT

Caroline Preece Jul 21, 2016

Pretty Little Liars' Alison may finally be regaining her edge and getting back to the character we know and love...

Warning: contains spoilers for Pretty Little Liars

Pretty Little Liars has always had a singular obsession with dead or missing blonde girls. It's iconic, after all – the all-American white girl from a wealthy family, someone who undoubtedly has secrets of her own, is made the victim of some terrible crime, leaving behind a slew of grieving family and friends eager to rewrite history.

For mystery narratives, it long-ago entered the deconstruction stage, from Gone Girl to Twin Peaks and tons of procedural dramas in-between.

Alison Dilaurentis, the Og missing blonde girl on Pretty Little Liars, played into this idea from the beginning of the show. Missing after the first scene of the pilot, dead by the end and immortalised in the opening credits for five and a half seasons, »

Jason Bourne: Universal planning many further sequels

20 July 2016 10:32 PM, PDT

Simon Brew Jul 21, 2016

Universal wants Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass to make more Jason Bourne films. Lots more Jason Bourne films...

Arriving in cinemas at the end of next week is the fifth film in the Bourne movie series, but crucially, the fourth to see Matt Damon play Jason Bourne. He returns to the series – along with director Paul Greengrass – after neither was involved in the underwhelming The Bourne Legacy. It would be fair to say that Universal has very high hopes for the reunion.

So much so, that plans are afoot for many further sequels. Universal chair Donna Langley was chatting to The New York Times about the future of the series, and she said that “here’s what I think the goal is: to keep Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass doing Bourne movies till they can’t do them anymore”.

She said this in the context of »
