Legendary's CEO Thomas Tull, the man partially responsible for bringing the likes of The Dark Knight, Godzilla (2014), Pacific Rim and most recently Jurassic World to the big screen is fangirling hard about the prospect of Godzilla and King Kong doing battle in Hollywood.
Speaking at the Business Insider's Ignition conference on Tuesday, Tull was quoted saying: “I’m juvenile, I wanted to see them fight.”
We don't blame you Thomas, a film this monumental could rival that of Star Wars' return!
Straczynski's Babylon 5 was excellent, so this should be good.
J. Michael Straczynski's Red Mars TV show is heading straight to series
One of the most exciting sci-fi TV announcements in recent memory was the news that Kim Stanley Robinson's legendary Mars trilogy -- Red Mars, Green Mars and Blue Mars -- was in development as a TV series at Spike, with Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski at the helm. We first heard about Straczynski's involvement back in January, though, and since then we haven't heard much about how the show's coming along. Development is never a guarantee of a show, so there's always been that nagging worry that Straczynski and Spike (a network relatively inexperienced with scripted drama) wouldn't be able to make it work.
Well, worry no more.
Variety reports that the network has given Red Mars a straight-to-series order for 10 episodes, with Straczynski serving as showrunner and writer. Production is expected to kick off next summer, so we'll likely hear some casting news over the next few months. Spike hopes to premiere the series in January 2017.
Hey be careful out there ... it's slick!
Just caught this on the Freeway!

Proof that the genetically altered chickens will rise up and make 'kung pao human' out of us!
A chicken embryo with a dinosaur-like snout instead of a beak has been developed by scientists
Sixty-five million years ago, an asteroid is believed to have crashed into Earth. The impact wiped out huge numbers of species, including almost all of the dinosaurs.
One group of dinosaurs managed to survive the disaster. Today, we know them as birds.
The idea that birds evolved from dinosaurs has been around since the 19th century, when scientists discovered the fossil of an early bird called Archaeopteryx. It had wings and feathers, but it also looked a lot like a dinosaur. More recent fossils look similar.
But these early birds didn't look the same as modern ones. In particular, they didn't have beaks: they had snouts, like those of their dinosaur ancestors.
Duh, there's a place in San Francisco called 'Starfleet' ... what? ... that's a movie?
‘NASA hacker’: ‘I found evidence America has space warships’
A hacker who faced a ten year legal battle after allegedly breaking into NASA computers has talked about what he found there.
Gary McKinnon believes he found evidence of a secret American space programme run by the Navy – with what sounds like warships in space.
He reveals all in a long video interview on UFO channel RichPlanet TV saying, ‘I kept going for months and months. I kept thinking, ‘They’re going to close this door’.
McKinnon has spoken out about his finds before, but rarely in such depth.
He says, ‘I used a program called Landsearch, which could search all the files and folders.
I think it's sad when a country like France (France!) has more stones than us!
I think Terri said it best:
I usually don't like to get into the discussion of politics it is too passionate of an arena. (This might be a bit long.) I do not support Donald Trump, but having said that at least he has a plan. The other side berates him but offers no other solution. One of the greatest loved, and admired presidents, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was faced with a similar situation with the Japanese. So, he issued an executive order and sent them all to internment camps until the end of the war. Yes, it is wrong, but he felt he had to do something in the interest of national security. In today's culture too many have embraced 'political correctness' as if it were a religion, add the 'grand' idea that the USA must be the moral center for the world, and yoke that to the 'everyone get's a trophy' philosophy and you have politicians (and everyday people) who can't take a stand on anything. I don't think anyone would even dump tea into the Boston Harbor these days. This country used to be a super power, a country that lead the world by a strong example. We must secure our borders and we have to take this terrorist situation seriously and do something!
And before you get pissed, let's look back in history when a Democratic president did almost the same thing:
Reminder: Jimmy Carter banned all Iranians from entering US
During the Iranian hostage crisis, Carter issued a number of orders to put pressure on Iran. Among these, Iranians were banned from entering the United States unless they oppose the Shiite Islamist regime or had a medical emergency.
Here’s Jimmy “Hitler” Carter saying it back in 1980.
Fourth, the Secretary of Treasury [State] and the Attorney General will invalidate all visas issued to Iranian citizens for future entry into the United States, effective today. We will not reissue visas, nor will we issue new visas, except for compelling and proven humanitarian reasons or where the national interest of our own country requires. This directive will be interpreted very strictly.
The US Navy's most futuristic ship just hit the water and, yes, its skipper is named Capt. James Kirk
The largest destroyer ever built for the U.S. Navy headed out to sea for the first time Monday, departing from shipbuilder Bath Iron Works and carefully navigating the winding Kennebec River in Maine before reaching the open ocean, where the ship will undergo sea trials.
More than 200 shipbuilders, sailors and residents gathered to watch as the futuristic 600-foot, 15,000-ton USS Zumwalt glided past Fort Popham, accompanied by tugboats.
Kelley Campana, a Bath Iron Works employee, said she had goose bumps and tears in her eyes.
"This is pretty exciting. It's a great day to be a shipbuilder and to be an American," she said.
"It's the first in its class. There's never been anything like it. It looks like the future."
Planet of the Apes on the big screen .... hooray!
TCM BRINGING 12 CLASSIC FILMS BACK TO THEATERS IN 2016
Living in Los Angeles is great if you’re a fan of films both new and classic. Yes, there are 45 multiplexes in the greater L.A. area alone, but there are also several wonderful repertory cinemas playing all kinds of classic films. Other cities have such classic or art house theaters, no doubt, but it’s certainly not as prevalent. This is why it’s wonderful that Turner Classic Movies is bringing several beloved movies back to theaters nationwide in 2016 through Fathom Events, so even more people have the opportunity to see great films of yesteryear on the big screen.
Each month in 2016, TCM and Fathom will release another old favorite for two nights only—one Sunday and one Wednesday—as part of their Big Screen Classics series, hosted and introduced by either Robert Osborne or Ben Mankiewicz (depending on the screener). There will be 12 movies in total, since that’s how calendars generally work. Wanna know what movies? Wanna? Here, we’ll tell you:
"Can't express how good it is to be in our new place. New beginning and an amazing feeling of calm. All the glory goes to God and the miracles he does."
