What's New Today
Saturday, December 20:SKY CAPTAIN: A trailer for this new project is now on-line at http://www.apple.com/trailers/paramount/skycaptainandtheworldoftomorrow/. Looks interesting. If you liked THE ROCKETEER and the idea of futuristic technology in the America of the 1930s, SKY CAPTAIN is for you. The trailer is also where we get our first good look at the film's extensive CGI backgrounds that director Kerry Conran chose to use. The reports emerging about this film's production are that just the actors were filmed against bluescreen backgrounds and every set you'll see in the film was created using computer graphics. With the Stargate SG-1 music in the background, I couldn't help but think Jack O'Neill should be jumping out at any moment instead of Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow or Angelina Jolie.
BABYLON BABIES: GOTHIKA director Mathieu Kassovitz's next assignment is the science fiction film BABYLON BABIES and that he has already cast leading man Vincent Cassel (BROTHERHOOD OF THE WOLF) in the main role. The movie, based on a novel by French author Maurice G. Dantec, is set in the near future and incorporates cyberpunk elements in its complex narrative structure. It's about the clash in cultures between those that can afford to pay for good genetic tailoring for their children and those that cannot.
MERGER AHEAD: Time Warner may soon add three famous letters to its name: MGM. According to published reporters, Time Warner, which recently said that it is again in the market for prominent acquisitions, has held preliminary merger talks with Metro Goldwyn Mayer. Time Warner, which already owns the Warner Brothers and New Line Cinema studios, is reportedly interested primarily in MGM's vast library that includes some 4,000 titles.
WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: There is a lot to see this weekend -- and it covers the spectrum of delight and amazement. Besides
the concluding chapter in Peter Jackson's Tolkien trilogy, THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING, what else opens this weekend? You may want to take in Mike Newell's lighthearted drama MONA LISA SMILE with a jam-packed ensemble cast of hot Hollywood actresses or HOUSE OF SAND AND FOG with Ben Kingsley and Jennifer Connelly. You can find reviews over at http://filmforce.ign.com/articles/446/446865p1.html.

A list of nominees among science fiction, fantasy and supernatural horror films and television programs are below: Film

LORD OF THE RINGS: RETURN OF THE KING: The final installment of the RINGS trilogy is setting records around the world posting a first-day worldwide gross of $57.6 million. Wednesday's opening of KING left a trail of broken boxoffice records in its wake on both the domestic and international fronts -- quite an accomplishment for a film that's 3 1/2 hours long. In its first-day, the domestic gross for KING was a sensational $34.1 million from 3,703 theaters and more than 7,000 prints. The debut marked far and away the biggest Wednesday in history as well as being the biggest single day in December, the third-best opening day ever and the sixth-biggest single-day of all time. Internationally, KING generated a powerful $23.5 million from 19 territories. Opening-day records were broken in 13 of those territories, including the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain and Scandinavia.
HARRY POTTER: When HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AKZKABAN opens in theaters in June, it will also open to Imax theaters. A deal struck by Warner Bros. Pictures and Imax Corp. represents the second Imax film commitment from Warners in the last year using Imax's proprietary DMR technology and marks the first time the two companies will experiment with a PG-rated film -- an opportunity that could spur additional cross-promotion by institutions housing Imax theaters. "Our partnership with Imax has been extremely rewarding and has allowed our films to expand their reach beyond our traditional audiences by offering viewers a whole new way to see Hollywood event films that is uniquely immersive and exciting," Warners' domestic distribution president Dan Fellman said.

BABYLON 5 ON THE BIG SCREEN: While I reported the article at DarkHorizons.com the other day, there really isn't much there to
get hot and bothered about. Rumors rarely materialize. It is best to wait for JMS to tell us what he is working on. He has done that in the past and he will this time as well. EEP is a very good sign and does indicate something significant -- but until we know what that will be, it is premature to even speculate. Joe gets far too much enjoyment out of leading us down one path and then taking an abrupt right turn just as we are getting comfortable. Take a deep breath, have a wonderful holiday and when JMS is ready to let us in on what is happening, he will do so.
LORD OF THE RINGS PREMIERE: The LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN TO THE KING make it's North American premiere yesterday. The highly anticipated debut at midnight Wednesday reaped a stunning estimate of $8 million. The midnight shows were offered at 2,100 theaters. The Peter Jackson-helmed picture is in 3,703 theaters with about 7,205 prints starting Wednesday. New Line president of domestic distribution David Tuckerman said, "People are asking me what kind of business are we going to do, not only for the opening day but for the weekend? I just don't know, but the matinees have been monstrous. We are in uncharted waters. But we will exceed the business of 'Two Towers.' " The gross for the first day of "Two Towers," which also opened on a Wednesday but in 3,622 venues, was a sterling $26.2 million. By the end of the first weekend for "Two Towers," the film had taken in a staggering $102.0 million in its first five days.
LORD OF THE RINGS MUSEUM EXHIBIT: Boston's Museum of Science will feature an exhibit about the LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy using techniques from the films to transform visitors into hobbit dimensions in their own photos. The exhibit will run Aug. 1-Oct. 24, 2004 and also feature massive models, an "armor corridor," a display of prosthetics, original costumes, the One Ring, jewelry and videos of the cast, crew and director in behind-the-scenes interviews.
NEW SCIFI FRIDAY LINE-UP: On January 9, SCIFI Friday returns with the first of 11 new episodes of STARGATE SG-1 and the premiere of CODE NAME: ETERNITY. Stargate SG-1 will air at 9 p.m. ET/PT, Code Name: Eternity at 10 p.m.
In the first new Stargate SG-1 episode of the year, Maj. Carter (Amanda Tapping) leads a dangerous mission to Anubis' homeworld in a desperate attempt to prevent him from breeding an army of super warriors. O'Neill (Richard Dean Anderson), meanwhile, goes to Honduras to rescue Daniel (Michael Shanks) and retrieve an ancient device that might be their last hope for defeating Anubis.
CODE NAME: ETERNITY is a new action-adventure series starring Cameron Bancroft as a shape-shifting alien who crash-lands on Earth and loses his memory. With the help of a beautiful doctor (Ingrid Kavelaars), he begins a long journey to figure out his mission on Earth, while attempting to elude otherworldly enemies. The show also features Andrew Gillies, Olivier Gruner and Billy Dee Williams.
CRASH: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jason Isaacs and Jennifer Esposito have joined Sandra Bullock, Don Cheadle, Brendan Fraser, Matt Dillon, Ryan Phillippe, Thandie Newton, Larenz Tate, Nona Gaye and rapper Ludacris in CRASH, for Bull's Eye Entertainment. The project is in production with Paul Haggis at the helm. Scripted by Haggis and Bobby Moresco, CRASH follows a multiethnic cast through the streets of Los Angeles as they careen in and out of one another's lives. Isaacs plays Detective Grace, the chief detective responsible for solving a wrap-around murder case that is part of the plot, while Esposito will star as the love interest of Cheadle's character who also is his partner on the police force.
CHRISTOPHER REEVE: The Hollywood Reporter indicates that Christopher Reeve has been tapped to take an animated look at America's pastime -- baseball. The Emmy-nominated director will helm an untitled computer-animated feature film for IDT Entertainment "Many projects cross my desk, but only a few are truly captivating," Reeve said. "With the perfect blend of warmth and wit, this is a story with universal appeal that both children and their parents will love." Set in the 1930s, the story revolves around a father and son and two legendary urban baseball teams and is based on an original treatment that was internally developed at IDT.
FIVE TO MIDNIGHT: SciFi Channel has signed Oscar winner Timothy Hutton to play the lead in FIVE DAYS TO MIDNIGHT, an upcoming original five-hour thriller that is set to begin filming next month in Vancouver. Hutton plays J.T. Neumeyer, a physics professor who receives a police file from the future with a detailed description of his own murder. Amidst a list of suspects and pictures of his bullet-strewn corpse, Neumeyer discovered that the date of his presumptive death is only five days away. With only five days until he meets his demise, Neumeyer has to catch this own killer. It's a structure that Sci Fi describes as "a cross between 'D.O.A.' and '24.'" The cable network will air "Five Days to Midnight," fittingly, over five consecutive nights. Each night will represent a day in Neumeyer's quest to save his live.
TRU CALLING: Last year, Jason Priestley was seriously injured while driving a practice lap for an Infiniti Pro Series race. He has signed to appear in seven episodes of FOX's drama TRU CALLING. He starts work in January in Vancouver, B.C., where the show films and where he was born. The seven-episode arc will be his longest run on a series since he left "Beverly Hills, 90210" in 1998. He has worked on numerous TV movies and feature films since then, as well as making guest appearances on series like "Spin City," "Grosse Pointe", "8 Simple Rules" and JEREMIAH.
Wednesday, December 17: PARAMOUNT PICTURES: According to Variety, Paramount is gearing up for a number of new projects. They have bought the spec fantasy script THE GIRL WHO COULD FLY by Victoria Lakeman for Michael Aguilar and Dean Georgaris to produce. The studio also optioned Michael Marshall Smith's SF novel SPARES for Aguilar and Georgaris to produce, along with Vertigo Entertainment partners Roy Lee and Doug Davison. THE GIRLD WHO COULD FLY is a fantastical story about an 11-year-old farm girl who discovers she can fly and is then detained by the Ministry of Anomalous Developmental Needs and Extra-normal Social Services (M.A.D.N.E.S.S.). The ministry seeks to normalize children by barring them from using their abnormalities. SPARES is set in a world of wealthy individuals who arrange for their children to be cloned at birth for future use in a medical emergency. Aguilar and Georgaris are searching for a writer for SPARES.
PETER PAN: The new PETER PAN movie opens on Christmas Day and Jason Isaacs, who is playing the dual role of Mr. Darling and Captain Hook in the film hearkens back to the traditional casting of J.M. Barrie's 1904 play and is in keeping with the story's psychological roots. Neverland represents not only Wendy's (Rachel Hurd-Wood) imagination, but also her fears of growing up, and it's natural that the villain there would resemble her father—"someone who represents the very worst and the very best things about being grown up." At a recent press conference promoting the film, Isaacs said "Barrie is quite clear that if ... you could stay awake when you're asleep, you would find your mother tidying up your mind much like she tidies up drawers. She takes all the pretty thoughts and puts them at the top, and takes all the evil dark ones and hides them at the bottom so you can't find them in the morning. And ... Neverland [is] a place inside children's minds [with] not just pirates and adventures, but first days at school and nasty-tasting medicine and math sums. And it's kind of this strange, surreal land."
SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW: The first traces of SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW (formerly known as THE WORLD OF TOMORROW) are turning up on the net; a trailer is expected to debut soon. This pulp adventure sci-fi film stars Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie. Directed by first-timer Kerry Conran, the film is set in a 1930s full of action and adventure straight out of the theater serials from that period. Law plays the so-called "Sky Captain", a daring aerial hero and Paltrow is a inquisitive reporter who uncovers a plot involving the world's scientists. The film is unusual in that director Conran shot all the scenes with the actors against blue screen. All of the backgrounds are being added digitally with computer effects to recreate the 1930s New York City time period.
CRITICS CHOICE AWARDS: Announcements of nominations are out for the Critics Choice Awards. For a full listing, go to http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=2053204 . Clint Eastwood's "Mystic River" leads the list of nominees, scoring eight nominations, including best picture, best director and composer for Eastwood, best actor for Sean Penn, best supporting actor for Tim Robbins, best supporting actress for Marcia Gay Harden, best acting ensemble and best writer for Brian Helgeland, who adapted Dennis Lehane's novel on which the film is based. Other leading contenders include "In America" with seven nominations, "Big Fish" and "Lost in Translation" with five noms each, "Cold Mountain" and "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" with four noms each and "The Last Samurai" and "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World" with three noms each.
LORD OF THE RINGS: THE LORD OF THE RINGS: RETURN OF THE KING has its first major award, it was named "year's best film" by the New York Film Critics Circle.
KINGDOM OF HEAVEN: Liam Neeson is in talks to join Ridley Scott's KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, an epic love story at 20th Century Fox.
Neeson would step into the role of the father of the film's hero, played by Orlando Bloom ("The Lord of the Rings"). The 20th Century Fox/Scott Free production with a script by William Monahan is scheduled to begin filming in Morocco in January.
Tuesday, December 16: BABYLON 5 - ON BIG SCREEN: While we will all have to wait for word from JMS, I just could not ignore the articles coming out of the UK related to a BABYLON 5 feature film in the works. According to DarkHorizons.com, the 'big thing' JMS was hinting at the other week may in fact be a movie - a UK source indicates that Winchester Films is rumoured to be in talks with the show's creator about doing a movie which would be shot late next year. We will all patiently wait for word from JMS on this, but let's keep our fingers crossed -- or whatever you do to send along good vibrations, hopes and support.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: This was a good weekend for romantic movies. SOMETHING'S GOTTA GIVE took the #1 spot raking in
$16.1 million at the box office. The romantic comedy knocked off THE LAST SAMURAI, which slipped to #2 with $14.1 million after one week in first. The Farrelly brothers' conjoined twins farce STUCK ON YOU didn't stick with too many moviegoers. The Matt Damon-Greg Kinnear coupling only managed to make $9.4 million, according to final studio figures released Monday. Popping into fourth place was the youth-oriented hip-hopped-up romance LOVE DON'T COST A THING, starring Nick Cannon, which earned $6.3 million. In limited release, Sony's PG-13 BIG FISH began fishing for Oscar attention Wednesday. Tim Burton's fantastical look at the blurry line between truth and fiction, depicted by a dying Albert Finney, Ewan McGregor as Finney's younger self and Billy Crudup as Finney's son, earned $207,377 from Friday to Sunday, reeling in a whopping $34,563 per-screen average at each of its six sites.

LORD OF THE RINGS: We haven't much longer to wait! THE RETURN OF THE KING opens tomorrow - December 17. Director Peter Jackson said that he will restore a deleted seven-minute scene with Christopher Lee's Saruman in the DVD version of the movie. "It was a scene we shot for The Two Towers, and when we cut that movie last year, we tried [to include it] then. But we felt it was anticlimactic. ... We had some Gollum scenes that we had to wrap up the film at the end with, so the seven minutes of return to Isengard didn't feel like it was a good place to have it." Jackson added that he then considered adding the scene to the beginning of Return of the King, rather than include it in the extended DVD version of Two Towers. "It's been in this movie as we've gone through various cuts through the year," he said. "We had a four-hour, 15-minute cut of Return of the King, with everything in there that we shot, but it was too long. It felt like the emotional impact of the film was being diluted. ... So we started trimming the film back, and the Saruman scene was one of many scenes we cut."

X-3: After Ian McKellen watched X-2 on DVD, he couldn't wait to talk to
Bryan Singer and the X-Men writers about doing another sequel -- and he wanted to make
sure his character, Magneto, was in it! "I've only just seen [X2] on DVD, because I was
fearful that I wasn't going to enjoy it as much as the first, and I enjoyed it more."
McKellen added, "I e-mailed [Singer] and said, 'Are you making number three, and am I going
to be in it?' And I sent the same thing off to the writers [Michael Dougherty, Dan Harris
and David Hayter]. And positive replies came back.

Burbank, Calif., October 14, 2003 - The future begins - or ends - here and now. Here is the huge space station Babylon 5. Now is the fateful year 2261. Commander John Sheridan has already declared the station free, breaking the ties between it and Earth Alliance. It was perhaps only a matter of time before he would have to fight to remain free. That time has come on January 6, 2003 with the complete 22-episode fourth season adventure of the acclaimed Babylon 5 sci-fi series from Warner Home Video (WHV). Presented on a must-have six-disc collector's set, Babylon 5: The Complete Fourth Season is priced to own at $99.98 SRP. Orders are due December 9.

"The TV to DVD trend has been very strong in the marketplace and WHV plans to continue releasing fan-favorite series throughout the year."
Babylon 5 has won two Emmy Awards for Groundbreaking Visual Effects and Makeup as well as the 1998 Science Fiction Writers of America Ray Bradbury Award. It also earned the 1999 Saturn Award for Best Genre Cable/Syndicated Series from the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films. Currently, Babylon 5 continues to be seen by legions of fans with episodes syndicated on the Sci-Fi Channel.
From the B5 moderated newsgroup:
Nothing major, more under the headings of FYI....
1) For those who follow my prose stuff...I've written a new short story, "The
Salvation of Lyman Terrell," which will be made available for reading for free
on amazon.com in the next few weeks (I'll try to remember to let folks know
when it goes up) as part of a series of such bonuses they're offering to
2) Thanks to a series of industry screenings, I've had the opportunity to see
the final Lord of the Rings movie...and for those wondering, it's spectacular.
I loved the first one and considered it a masterpiece; wasn't quite as happy
with the second one, which I felt (and despite some corrections made via the
extended cut, still feel) that it suffered where it diverged from the book, and
where it replaced story logic with movie logic.
But "The Return of the King" is magnificent on every level. There are times
you feel you're looking at some forgotten history come to life, the imagery is
almost painfully beautiful at times, breathtaking and awe-inspiring other
times. I remember sitting there, thinking there are some things one feels
priviliged to have lived long enough to have seen. This is one of them. It's
brave, heroic, tragic, moving, funny, inspiring and wistful all at the same
So for those who were hoping for the best...your hopes will be realized. It's
just freaking magnificent.
BABYLON 5 ANNIVERSARY
Ranger Nick pointed out that on January 24, 2004, we will celebrate the 10th anniversary of Babylon 5 coming to the airwaves. As I thought about this, I wondered how we might best mark this event -- making it special in some way! Send along your ideas and we can see what we might be able to do.
Perhaps a special page with reflections of what Babylon 5 has meant to us? Perhaps we could suggest to SCIFI -- a special day of special episodes! Give it a little thought and let's see what we can come up with.
Here is the first suggestion on how we can celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Babylon 5.
Ranger Karen wrote:
Why not collect "thank you"s that could be compiled & sent to Joe from the community that he
created? Perhaps some of the cast and crew members would enjoy participating in something like
that as well. We love the world Joe created so much that almost 11 years after the pilot was
first aired, we excitedly anticipate new B5 projects. I can't think of a better way to
encourage him than to let him know we are still with him.
Check out the new Anniversary Page. Send along your suggestions

desire to have it back on the airwaves. Check out how you can help.
Nothing official, but I read somewhere that Showtime will return JEREMIAH to their schedule in March of 2004. Hopefully we will get a

fantastic prices. Check out Photo Shop. Ordering is easy -- and you can't
beat the prices! Just let me know which photos you want and I'll check to make sure they are still in stock.

one of them.

MAIL FOR CAST AND CREW
Here's a recent note from JMS on the subject:
Just an FYI to those who've been using the Ventura Blvd. mail drop for fan mail
As mentioned before, we're phasing out the forwarding of fan mail because we a)
don't have the resources, complicated by b) the actors have scattered to the
four winds, and it makes it very difficult to get everything to everybody in a
So, having provided prior notice...fan mail to actors coming to the Ventura
Blvd. mail drop will be sent back. Mail to actors should be sent via their
official fan clubs. I will still be taking mail there, since it's my mailbox,
but that's it.
Just so's y'all know and save a few bucks on postage and returns.
