Almost Human – Trailer

Almost Human is one of those shows that slipped by my filter for a while. I had seen the headline in my feeds a few times, but my brain wrote it off as another doomed middle market sci-fi television series. I finally took the time to watch the trailer above which highlighted some impressive visuals and I am always down to watch anything with Karl Urban in it. Karl Urban is no stranger to the sci-fi genre playing iconic roles such as Judge Dredd in Dredd, Bones in the Star Trek reboot, John Grimm in Doom, and plenty more. Not to mention a backing from J.J Abrams’ Bad Robot.

The series is set 35 years into the future when humans in the Los Angeles Police Department are paired up with life-like androids, as a detective who has a dislike for robots ends up being teamed up with one with emotional feelings. – Wikipedia

Some troubling news has risen as their show runner, Shanmugam Shankar, has already parted ways with the show. Almost Human premieres on November 4th on FOX.

Star Trek Into Darkness – Official Trailer #3

This is the third trailer for J.J. Abrams “Star Trek Into Darkness” which will be in theaters May 17th. This trailer gives a better feeling of the relationship between James T. Krik played by Chris Pine and rumored Khan (but I sort of hope it is an alternate universe Picard) played by Benedict Cumberbatch.  I am glad to see some space in this trailer as previous trailers seemed to have been stuck on the land and well… land is boring!

J.J. and Star Wars sitting in a tree.

So it is no news that J.J. Abrams is lined up to direct the next Star Wars movie and I ain’t even mad about it. Yeah, there are many of directors who could have done some very interesting storys with the Star Wars Universe, but I can not think of any other directors with the track record Abrams has who could give new light to the expansive universe. What do you think of the J.J. Abrams choice? From what I have read it was hard to find someone, it is kinda career suicide, no matter how good the movie is you are going to have die hard fans of the originals to battle. What other directors would you have put on the short list? I brain went went straight to Moon director Duncan Jones and Looper director Rian Johnson. Who are your picks?

Star Trek Into Darkness – Official Teaser


The teaser to the much anticipated return of JJ Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness has hit Youtube. The teaser doesn’t give away to much, just how I like my teasers, but the internet is crying out Khan! I for one am no hardcore Trekkie and simply just enjoyed JJs’ first Star Trek film so I will be making zero speculations before it hits theaters May 17th, 2013.
