Grab Your Graboids! Kevin Bacon Confirms A 'Tremors' Reboot For SyFy Is On With The Help Of Blumhouse
Can you fly, you sucker? This has to be one of my favorite lines from #Tremors—maybe from any movie. Kevin Bacon's Valentine McKee (what a name, right?) shouts it out when he drops his last bomb into the last Graboid's mouth, and watches in glee as the beast plummets to its death. As much as the first movie was its own cult phenomenon, McKee could also have said the same thing about the following sequels, the prequel and short-lived TV series, none of which ever lived up to the first movie. But for us die-hard Tremors fans, there's some good news.
The Isaac Asimov science fiction trilogy Foundation heavily informed Star Wars and many other sci-fi films and TV series, but for decades it has confounded Hollywood attempts at a straight adaptation. I’m hearing that Skydance, David S. Goyer and Josh Friedman are going to try to crack it. Skydance Television is closing a deal with the Asimov estate to try turning Foundation into a sprawling TV series.
Game of Thrones fans may soon have another series to hold them over while they're awaiting more episodes of their favorite medieval fantasy, as #Syfy has ordered a pilot for #Nightflyers, another George R. R. Martin production. The author confirmed the news on Twitter on June 26, 2017: The @SYFY Channel has greenlit the pilot for a proposed NIGHTFLYERS series, based on my 1980 novella, one of my SF/ horror hybrids.
Whether you like it or not, James Cameron's 2009 epic Avatar was revolutionary in the evolution of 3D and name-brand recognition. It was a marvel that pushed the boundaries of motion capture, visual effects and the modern blockbuster. Though the 3D medium has fallen out of favor domestically, international audiences still rely heavily on 3D films. For example over 97 percent of those who saw The Last Knight in China experienced the film in 3D. Arguably, the popularity of 3D has never been higher.
