Up Next – Sitges Film Festival in Spain & London Film Festival in UK

Sitges Film Festival

The fall film festival season rages on…! Up next are two more film festivals in Europe. I’m stopping by the Sitges Film Festival in Spain, a prestigious genre/horror festival celebrating its 50th year. And then I’m heading up to London to catch the second half of the London Film Festival, celebrating its 64th year. Both festivals kick off this week and continue through next week for a total of 10 days (I love that festivals continue to run for 10 days, it’s always invigorating to stay and watch films for that long). This is my first time attending both festivals, which makes me anxious but it’s also exciting. Attending a film festival for the first time is always daunting, but once I figure everything out and settle in for screenings, all is well again. ›››

Guillermo del Toro’s Fantastic Voyage Remake to Film Next Fall

Guillermo del Toro's Fantastic Voyage Remake to Film Next Fall

Guillermo del Toro’s Fantastic Voyage remake to film next fall

It was over a year and a half ago that fan-fav director Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pacific Rim) signed on to direct 20th Century Fox and Lightstorm Entertainment’s long-gestating Fantastic Voyage remake. Now, Deadline is reporting that it will be del Toro’s next project after he completes work and promotion on his December 8 Fox Searchlight release, The Shape of Water. The original plan was to start production next spring for a holiday 2019 release, but with his Shape of Water commitments and potential award season activity, Fantastic Voyage will now restart its lengthy prep period in spring 2018 to begin production by fall 2018 at the latest, pushing the release to 2020.

Set to make use of the same 3D technology Cameron used for AvatarFantastic Voyage is about a scientist who is dying of a blood clot. His only chance for survival is for five scientist colleagues to be miniaturized in a ship called the Proteus, and injected into his bloodstream. The film is a remake of the 1966 original, directed by Richard Fleischer and starring Raquel Welch and Donald Pleasence.

The project would unite del Toro with his longtime friend James Cameron, and screenwriter David Goyer (Batman BeginsMan of Steel) who penned Blade II. Cameron, Jon Landau, and Rae Sanchini are producing with Goyer in line to executive produce.

Fantastic Voyage remake has been in the depths of development hell for many years with a revolving door of potential directors (Roland Emmerich, Paul Greengrass, Shawn Levy), stars (Will Smith, Hugh Jackman) and screenwriters (Shane Salerno, Laeta Kalogridis, Marianne & Cormac Wibberley). Although not an official Fantastic Voyage remake, Joe Dante’s 1987 film Innerspace took a page or twelve from the original Fantastic Voyage in depicting a similar miniature trip through the human body.

The next Doctor in ‘Doctor Who’ is a woman, and all the cool humans on the internet are thrilled

TwitterFacebook

The next Doctor in Doctor Who is going to be played by a woman, and before we examine the reactions of the trolls, let’s spend a little quality time with the nice humans first. 

According to the BBC, British actress Jodie Whittaker is scheduled to be the next Doctor in the long-running science fiction series. She’ll be the first woman in the role and (some) fans couldn’t be more pleased.

Whittaker is a fan favorite in the UK, and in some places in the U.S., for her role in the Netflix mystery series Broadchurch. If you haven’t seen the series yet, I recommend you take time out of your boring end-of-work-day Google searching and watch an episodeShe’s fantastic. Read more…
