It has been more than 45 years since Stanley Kubrick brought us the epic 2001: A Space Odyssey. The movie was written by Kubrick and prolific science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke, who co-currently wrote a novel of the same name. In fact, eventually there were four books in Clarkeís Space Odyssey series, one of which is moving forward.
TV remakes of interesting movies have been all the rage this season, but Syfy has beat a lot of the other channels to the punchline with its 12 Monkeys series, based on Terry Gillamís 1996 film of the same name. Now, weíve been given an extended trailer for 12 Monkeys. Check it out.
Yes, Syfy and its president Dave Howe have revealed that Sharknado 3 has not only been confirmed, but now we know more about what it will be about, too.
Syfy is making damned sure that it will once more be synonymous with science fiction by ordering a series based on a graphic novel created by former writers and producers on the many different Stargate series.
We all know that the distant future is going to get rough for this planet. The thing in question here is whether or not Syfyís small screen take on 12 Monkeys is going to make the future better or worse, and now we know when we'll find out how good it is.
Have you ever wanted to have the powers of Dracula, Merlin and Robin Hood? Sorry, you can't have them. But you may get to watch someone else showing off these fictional characters' skills and more.
Syfyís limited series, Ascension has been in the works since last spring. Today, we are finally seeing footage from the large ship, 50 years later. Itís large and well-lit and beautiful, but thereís also violence and terror present.
While Syfy has a slew of interesting series coming out over the next year or so, it would be remiss of everyone on Earth to think that the network had turned its back on making incredibly bizarre mash-up creature features. You know youíve all made jokes about what the next one would be, and Iím admittedly enthused to announce that the network will next destroy the world with Lavalantula!
Syfy's off-the-rails bio-thriller Helix has revealed the first look at the non-Arctic Season 2. Following in the footsteps of Speed 2: Cruise Control, this time, itís on a boat. Or at least part of it is.
Z Nation is on a completely different wavelength from Robert Kirkmanís walker-filled universe. If The Asylum made some version of 28 Days Later, this first episode, ďPuppies and Kittens,Ē would be its 28 Weeks Later, hopefully without the eventual rapey vibe.
I donít know about all science fiction fans, but Iím blown away by how many scripted genre projects Syfy is bringing to the development table. The effectiveness of the final products remains to be seen, but the network continues to aim high by adding to its slate John Scalziís Hugo Award-nominated Old Manís War and its sequel novels.
Zombie baby! Z Nation's trailer really went there! The video above made its grand debut last night during Syfy's premiere broadcast of the highly anticipated Sharknado sequel. Z Nation is Syfy's new 13-episode series, due to arrive this fall.
One of the networkís more questionable original tales is the bounty hunter adventure Killjoys, which just found its three lead characters in Aaron Ashmore (Smallville), Luke Macfarlane (Brothers and Sisters) and Hannah John-Kamen (The Hour). Will these three have enough chemistry to make you want to follow them all over the universe?
For better or worse, Season 7 kicks things off in an unpredictable way by adding a new judge and some unneeded gimmicks to ramp up the pressure on the 16 contestants vying for the top prize.
First impressions? This doesnít look much different from any other dark drama out there right now, and itís in dire need of Brad Pitt talking about plagues of madness. But it could be a lot worse.
