    Amazon Prime Video

    http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/tech/news/a552739/lovefilm-instant-to-become-amazon-prime-instant-video.html I used to be with Lovefilm, but left when they stopped renting games. At the time their streaming video service was nice as an added bonus on the subscription, but not something I'd have paid for on its own due to a poor library and apps only available on a very limted number of devices with rubbish update support. Not sure if this will tempt me away from Netflix, their original programming (House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Arrested Development) blow away Amazon's rather uninspiring efforts in that area and without the introductory offer it's actually more expensive than Netflix (only by about £7 but still). The main argument for that price is the Amazon Prime delivery which i wouldn't particularly want. Still, more competition is good for us customers, not sure I'd want to be subscribed to two streaming services, but if they significantly improve their library I might take a look eventually.
  2. Looks like it's not been abandoned yet. They're looking to nab Mahershala Ali to star. It's not technically been renewed yet. Variety think it all going to hinge on who they can sign to star and the script.

    Doom Patrol

    Greg Berlanti and DC Universe (DC's upcoming streaming service) are making a live action Doom Patrol series. It's ordered direct-to-series, with 13 episodes. Apparently it also gives Berlanti a new record of 14 shows airing.
  4. New show based on a George RR Martin novella, which was previously adapted as a movie in 1987. Some scientists and a telepath travel on a spaceship, Nightflyer, to the edge of the solar system to try to contact alien life. Things go wrong. Co-produced by SyFy and Netflix, with Netflix having international rights. GRRM isn't directly involved in the show (apart from appearing in the trailer below), keeping busy on other stuff, but does get credited as Executive Producer. Apparently filmed in Limerick, where I didn't even know they had studios.
  5. http://variety.com/2017/film/global/rick-okon-lizzie-caplan-sky-das-boot-sequel-1202479418/ Sky Germany, Italy and UK are teaming up for a €25m 8-part series. Obviously not a direct sequel to the original, but continuing the war in 1942 with the young crew of another U-boat. Could be interesting, but I'm not sure it needs to be connected to Das Boot.
  6. Due to more arguments in the big GoT thread about what should and shouldn't be in that thread and whether it was working or not I have decided to start this. Sorry for diluting the chat and making another GoT thread. Here is my post from the other thread which a few people seemed to agree with and forms the basis for this thread. I don't care if something is exactly the same as the book, completely different or whatever. If this isn't how you would like to discuss the show please open a "Game of Thrones-Books read up to current episode" thread. Please leave this thread totally book free. No book chat. None. So no book chat. None. Even to discuss differences. This is purely to discuss what is on screen. The only time spoilers should be used in here is between Sunday night when the new episode is first shown in the US and 8pm Monday evening. If you are waiting for the Sky transmission and click a spoiler in here you just have yourself to blame. After 8pm on Mondays spoiler tags should not be needed in this thread. The reason I am being so fussy about spoilers is the books are out there containing spoilers for the next few series and the spoilers are so significant as anything can happen. After series one it is clear anyone can die etc.
  7. Netflix show based on a 1959 Shirley Jackson gothic horror novel, but with the plot updated. Coming on 12 October. Created and directed by Mike Flanagan, of Oculus and Gerald's Game. It's about a group of siblings who lived in what would later become the most famous haunted house in the country. As adults they are brought back together and must face the ghosts of their past (cliche alert).

    Love, Death & Robots

    https://deadline.com/2019/01/love-death-and-robots-first-look-photos-david-fincher-tim-miller-netflix-1202530682/ David Fincher and Tim Miller are bringing an animated anthology series to Netflix. An 18 part series with episodes ranging from 5 to 15 minutes, each created by different animator teams around the world in different styles. Sci-fi, fantasy, horror and dark comedy.
  9. I've always liked the 80s movie based on the book of the same name and now National Geographic are making a series of it with Appian Way, DiCaprio's company. They are planning on it being multiple seasons, covering from the test pilots to the Moon landing. They're saying a mission for each season, which I assume means the overall Mercury, Gemini and Apollo missions.

    Marvel's The Offenders

    In a deal similar to how they started the Netflix shows, Marvel has done a deal with Hulu for 4 shows, culminating in a "The Offenders" team-up. But this time they're adult animated shows. The 4 individual shows are Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler Show, Marvel’s Hit-Monkey, Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K. and Howard the Duck (it's happening.gif).

    Catch 22

    https://www.theguardian.com/film/2017/nov/17/george-clooney-returns-to-television-for-catch-22-two-decades-after-er?CMP=soc_567 This could be good.
  12. Batwoman is coming to the "Arrowverse". It's not certain of being its own show yet, but they are casting the character for a crossover event in December with a view to spinning her out to her own show. It's being developed by Greg Berlanti, of all the other shows, and Caroline Dries, of The Vampire Diaries.
  13. http://deadline.com/2017/10/bad-boys-spinoff-tv-series-starring-gabrielle-union-jerry-bruckheimer-1202194320/ It's a bit confusing whether Bad Boys 3 is happening or not, but they're now developing a TV spin-off based around Gabrielle Union's character from the second movie, where she was a DEA agent and Burnett's sister.
  14. Noah Hawley, behind the excellent Fargo, is bringing this to TV. Apparently it's being kept separate from the X-Men movies. Stars Dan Stevens as David Haller, who hears voices in his head and resides in a psychiatric hospital. But he may actually be a powerful mutant (which I assume means he really is). Begins in the US on 8 February. No UK news yet.
  15. It was mentioned in the movie thread a while ago, but there's some more concrete plans coming together for the TV version now. Clement and Waititi are both involved, with Clement writing and Waititi directing. Kayvan Novak, Matt Berry, Natasia Demetriou, Harvey Guillen have been cast. Just a pilot order for now.
  16. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/twilight-zone-reboot-jordan-peele-works-at-cbs-all-access-1050554 CBS announced a Twilight Zone reboot. Coming to CBS All Access, the streaming platform they show Star Trek Discovery on. Here's a bit you will "love". Writer and showrunner is Marco Ramirez, writer for Daredevil season 2, Defenders and Sons of Anarchy. I know how people really took to all that The Hand and Reaching Out.
  17. David Attenborough doing another planet-spanning show, this time on Netflix. 8 parts, coming on 5 April. Super Bowl ad, with not a single Superb Owl in sight

    Hanna - TV version

    Turns out Amazon are doing a TV version of the Saoirse Ronan movie, Hanna. Which came out more years ago than I thought. David Farr, the movie co-writer, is writing this too. Coming in March. I liked the movie and it's odd style. So, for me, this has a lot to live up to.

    Future Man

    From Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg comes a series you may expect Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg to be behind. Whole series comes to Hulu on 14 November. Josh Hutcherson, from Hunger Games, plays Josh Futterman (Futterman/Future Man, geddit?) who is a janitor and gamer. He completes a game sent back from the future to find someone to save the future. Like The Last Starfighter. As they literally say. Turns out a cure for herpes has basically doomed mankind so he has to travel back in time to kill the creator. Ed Begly Jr., Haley Joel Osment and Keith David are also in it. Glenne Headly also appears, but she died after filming 5 episodes. See how many movie references you can spot.
  20. Amazon come along with another hero show, based on a Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson comic. The show is developed by Eric Kripke, Evan Goldberg, and Seth Rogen. Stars Karl Urban, Elizabeth Shue, Antony Starr and a bunch more.
  21. So I just started watching Apollo 13 on Netflix, a film I've never seen before (or so I thought, it does feel now like I've seen it already but I can't recall anything really). I have a loooot to catch up on. I've never seen the Godfather films, nor the Alien films, or in terms of TV shows for example the Sopranos or X-Files. (This mafia and sci-fi parallel was pure coincidence just now, haha). And there are many, many more. In 2015 I finally watched Breaking Bad, and last year I saw Psycho for the first time, but generally progress is slow. What do you still need to see?
  22. Thought it was worth separating discussion of the upcoming TV show from The Avengers thread as it's now been given an official title and synopsis and more news/pictures/video should start trickling out over the coming weeks. A new piece of news that's just come out is that J. August Richards (Gunn from Angel) has also been cast in a 'secret' role. Let the speculation begin. My wild guess, maybe Luke Cage, that's a character that would allow them to add some superpowers to the mix but one who might not support a film in their own right.
  23. I know I'm posting two threads at the same time, because there's two versions coming. This one is from the Europe and Africa division of Fox TV and Canal+. It's eight parts and set in the present day. It's created and written by Misfits Howard Overman, who intends to explore themes of racial superiority and ethnic conflict.
  24. From the studio that brought you the best Resident Evil movie series starring Milla Jojovich OF ALL TIME and Netfix. Not a lot of detail yet, but they plan to do exciting things such as "expand the universe" and "deepen the existing mythology". It'll explore the dark inner workings of Umbrella Corporation and the new world order. The latter are wrestlers, right?

    Doctor Who

    Personally enjoyed it. The bin burp and the severed arm wrestling were a bit shit, but otherwise it worked well as an introduction to the characters. Some people have criticized the somewhat hectic pace of the story but I personally feel that the whole intent was to introduce Rose and the Doctor and having her get caught up in the action right from the beginning allowed this to happen with plenty of pace. I don't think that a detailed story PLUS the introduction of the characters would've worked if they'd tried to squeeze it all into the first 45 minute episode. My 10 yr old son sat glued to the TV the entire 45 minutes, so on that count I think it worked as family entertainment - after all, if the programme only tried to appeal to the (now grown up) people who watched the old series it would probably fail terribly - the producers have to attract a new audience as well as catering for the original fans if it's to succeed. Seems to have trounced Ant 'n' Dec in the ratings though and almost all the word of mouth I've seen has been positive (apart from the balls-up that allowed Graham Norton's voice to intrude - I thought the baddies were Autons, not Nortons...). Have to see how it holds up over the coming weeks. What'd everyone else think?
