SDCC 2015: First Trailer For ‘Firefly’-Inspired ‘Con Man’ From Alan Tudyk, Nathan Fillion
  |  @   |  

We may never see Firefly live and breathe again (unless someone finally wakes up and finds a way to makes it happen for us), but while die hard fans of the series continue to hopelessly wait for that day to arrive something else inspired by Joss Whedon‘s show has been born.

Back in March we found out about Con Man, a web series from Firefly co-stars Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion. Mirroring their previous gig working together, the web series follows actors from a canceled (far too soon) science fiction TV show. The actor who playued the captain on the show (Fillion) goes on to become a big movie star, while the actor who played the pilot (Tudyk) finds himself traveling around making appearances and sci-fi conventions.

A trailer for Con Man was shared during their panel at San Diego Comic-Con—the first web series to have a Hall H panel—and now the trailer is available to enjoy online. You can see it below along with a poster and full synopsis that includes the cast of very familiar names you’ll see in the series.

  |  

It’s a big week for BBC America. Not only is the hype running fast and loud for the upcoming season of Doctor Who launching this weekend, but the channel made the official announcement yesterday that they have acquired a fan-favorite series, the reimagined Battlestar Galactica. BBC America has signed a deal with NBC Universal to air the two-part miniseries that launched in 2004, as well as Seasons 1 through 4.

DVD Review: ‘Battlestar Galactica: The Plan’
  |  @   |  

Battlestar Galactica: The Plan
Director: Edward James Olmos
Starring: Dean Stockwell, Rick Worthy, Tricia Helfer, Grace Park, Edward James Olmos, Michael Trucco, Kate Vernon, Callum Keith Rennie, Aaron Douglas, Michael Hogan, Rekha Sharma, Katee Sackhoff, James Callis
Universal Studios
Release Date: October 27, 2009

I don’t want to be human! I want to see gamma rays. I want to hear x-rays, and I want to smell dark matter. I want to reach out with something other than these prehensile paws and feel the solar wind of a supernova flowing over me. I’m a machine, and I could know much more.

Battlestar Galactica: The Plan is the third prequel movie that has been made within the realms of the brilliant Ronald D. Moore and David Eick re-imagining of Battlestar Galactica. The others were Razor and Caprica (which is more of a spinoff and setup for its own new series set to begin in 2010), and they offer us a deeper look into the many stories that we never saw as we journeyed through the wonderful five-season run. While Razor concentrated on another Battlestar ship and added many details to one of the stories we briefly saw in the series, The Plan is a unique and even odd kind of animal that takes us to many different points from the show.

To be completely honest, there’s not really a firm story here, but more of a completely alternative perspective to the intense and familiar events of the series. Do not think that that means that there is no story at all, though — there certainly is, and the more you think about the new things that you see within the film, the more you related them to the overall story, and this is where this movie really works well. The Plan actually plays out almost like the deleted scenes in your DVD special features section, which is kind of strange, but again, unique in its own little way.

Geekgasm: ‘Battlestar Galactica’ Babes Grace Cover of Maxim
  |  @   |  

Battlestar Galactica‘s Tricia Helfer has posed for PETA and bared all for Playboy. Now, Helfer is baring some more, along with her BSG co-star Grace Park, for the November issue of Maxim magazine.

The lovely ladies, both of whom made their mark playing sexy, yet deadly human-looking Cylons on the hit SCI FI Channel series, star in Battlestar Galactica: The Plan, the upcoming BSG prequel movie due out October 27, 2009 on DVD and Blu-ray. The uncensored 90-minute feature will combine previously aired scenes from the series, which ran four seasons, with new footage which will show the events of the series from the Cylons’ point of view.

And as far as that Maxim cover goes — wow. As I mentioned, the DVD version of The Plan is an uncensored DVD, which I assumed meant strong language and heavy action. In the Maxim issue, which hits newstands on October 20, Helfer confirms that there will be more “explicit action” and talks about how she refuses to use a body double. “You will see a little bit of skin from me as the Six character,” Helfer said, adding that there will also be “a new character you’ll see in some very intense sex scenes.”

Park goes further to say, “Yeah, there’s going to be a T & A version. Though maybe I should say T, C & A, because it’s not just girls this time”¦” Whoa!!!

Check out some more photos we were sent from the Maxim photoshoot here below, along with a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot.
