Not Exactly Stargate News
Posted By:

In a curious confluence we found three news stories today which sadly aren't about the long-hoped revival of that beloved TV franchise, but which relate to it.

Space.com published a potentially confusing piece regarding the fate of the long-ago announced plans for Roland Emmerich to reboot the Stargate films.

Wyrmwood's Ozzie Zombies
Posted By:

Post-apocalyptic zombie titles are so numerous and varied that many justifiably regard them as a genre unto themselves.

But they can also include sci-fi or fantasy elements as does the Australian made and set Wyrmwood films and TV series.

Moonflop?
Posted By:

Early reviews for Moonfall indicated a relatively poor overall score from critics and now that the full weekend is behind us, we can look at the final score.

On Rotten Tomatoes it holds a 40% / 67% score from critics / audiences and on IMDb.com 5.3 / 10. Not awesome.

Doctor Who Denial
Posted By:

Doctor Who executive producer Matt Strevens appears to now worship at the altar of denial, as reported by Radio Times.

We understand that PR in any industry is essentially a huge amount of lying but there are both limits to what anyone can swallow and a point beyond which you're just providing ammunition to opponents.

Orville Shuttle Photo
Posted By:

Following up from his announcement of a delay to The Orville's season 3, Seth MacFarlane has tweeted an image of "The new shuttle" on a film set.

We noticed those vessels in the teaser provided yesterday but the one we see take off in the new intro sequence appeared to be leaving a station and could have been some other type of ship.

Foe Filming in Victoria
Posted By:

Amazon's sci-fi psychological thriller, Foe, has begun filming in Victoria.

It's a long way from being on our screens so don't go getting too excited. Except for the possibility of seeing places you know or perhaps even frequent in major titles like this.

After Yang
Posted By:

After Yang, last year's winner of the Alfred P Sloan prize (science or technology theme) at the Sundance Film Festival, has been given a (US) cinema and streaming release date of March 4 on Showtime, and a trailer.

We can't find any sign of it coming to Australian cinemas yet or any word of it on streaming services, but Paramount+ is where we'd look first for Showtime content.

Apple Year Ahead
Posted By:

Apple have published their lineup of original TV series releasing this year.

There's not a lot of sci-fi - just two series - but out of a total of thirteen that's not too bad.
