THE FOUNTAIN: While out promoting his latest film, VAN HELSING, Hugh Jackman confirmed that he will have a major role in Darren Aronofsky's SF epic movie THE FOUNTAIN. "I play three characters, and it's basically about the search for the Fountain of Youth." Jackman had high praise for writer/director Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream). "It is really an extraordinary [film]," he said. "I think Darren could become, in the final analysis, another Kubrick. I think he's an amazing director, and he's written a script that is just phenomenal. I'm honored to be a part of it, I really am; I'm very excited about it." The movie was also delayed for a year when co-star Cate Blanchett got pregnant. A number of actors have been associated with the movie, including Brad Pitt.

HELLBOY: HELLBOY's leading man, Ron Perlman, has been cast in the indie movie COLDWATER. Perlman plays Morris Timberland, a harsh youth center leader known to his charges as "The Colonel". He oversees a detention facility for young offenders. The project was written by Vincent Grashaw and Mark Penney and draws inspiration from the tough environments of youth boot camps, places where the punishment can exceed the crime. Music video director Sean Michael Beyer is behind the camera and filming kicks off on June 1.

Millenium MILLENIUM: July 20 has finally been selected as the Regiona 1 street date for the first season of Chris Carter's MILLENNIUM. This thriller debuted on Fox in 1996 and contained storylines that were even darker than Carter's other creation, THE X-FILES. MILLENNIUM went on for three seasons before being cancelled by the network. The show starred Lance Henriksen as Frank Black, an ex-FBI serial killer profiler who was recruited by a clandestine organization known as the Millennium Group. Black's abilities to "see" into the minds of killers made him a valuable addition to the team but left him unsettled about where society might be headed. Eventually Black began to suspect the Millennium Group of holding secrets and a belief that some kind of apocalyptic event would be shortly happening, and that the crimes Black and the other Millennium operatives investigated were signs of the coming end of the world. The DVD set will contain six discs featuring all 22 episodes from the show's first season. Each of the episodes will be presented in 1.33:1 full-screen format with English, Franch and Spanish Dolby Surround sound. TV promo spots for all 22 episodes will also be included. Bonus features include a commentary by series creator Chris Carter on the pilot episode; a commentary by director David Nutter on "Gehenna"; and a commentary on "The Judge" (with unspecified individuals.) Three featurettes are also in the set: "Order in Chaos: Making MILLENNIUM Season One"; "The Academy Group"; and "Main Title Design". As well, trailers for several Fox DVDs will be bundled on the set including ones for PREDATOR: SPECIAL EDITION and the X-FILES season sets.

Stargarte Atlantis STARGATE: ATLANTIS: SCIFI has put up a new website for it's upcoming original series STARGATE ATLANTIS which premieres July 16. This preliminary site includes a welcome message from "President Henry Hayes"; cast and crew biographies; a gallery of images; wallpaper, e-card and IM icon downloads; and a bulletin board. A spinoff of STARGATE SG-1, the new series features a new cast led by Joe Flanigan, playing a crew that undertakes humanity's greatest and most dangerous mission yet. ATLANTIS will debut with a two-hour premiere in July and feature crossover appearances by members of the SG-1 team. Following its premiere, 18 additional original episodes of ATLANTIS will air during the show's regular Friday 10 p.m. ET/PT timeslot as a companion series to the new eighth season of SG-1, which airs at 9 p.m. STARGATE ATLANTIS is featured in the current issue of TV Guide, with new photos inside and on the cover. The issue, covering the week of April 25, is now on newsstands.

FLASH GORDON: Two different sources no report that VAN HELSING director Stephen Sommers is presently attached to produce a new FLASH GORDON movie. Inside word is that the gentleman is waiting to see how his new movie, VAN HELSING, fares at the box office come May. If VAN HELSING proves to be a monster-sized hit, Sommers may have to pass on writing and directing FLASH in favor of VAN HELSING 2.

NEW TREK FEATURE: STAR TREK producer Rick Berman has finally dropped the first hints of a new theatrical project for the franchise. In the latest issue of "Dreamwatch" magazine, Berman confirms for the first time that he is now developing a STAR TREK feature film project: "I am involved in the very early stages of what could be the next STAR TREK movie," reveals Berman, in an excerpt provided by Dreamwatch. "It's something I will be producing with two other producers." He cryptically describes it as "a prequel" without any further elaboration. The names of his producing cohorts will have to remain unknown for now, as well. This follows a report earlier this week from Dark Horizons that Paramount may be working on a project the site described as "Starfleet Command." Coincidentally, former TREK producer Harve Bennett (STAR TREKs II-VI) revealed recently that several years ago he had pitched a Starfleet Academy-based STAR TREK movie concept. On the television front, while the future of their first series remains in limbo, Berman confirms that he is developing a non-STAR TREK sci-fi series with partner Brannon Braga. Both Berman and Braga have development deals with Paramount. If a new series begins development in earnest, TrekWeb insiders suggest Berman and/or Braga might take a reduced role in a fourth season of ENTERPRISE, though this is entirely speculation.”

AMERICAN GOTHIC: Gary Cole will be returning as Sheriff Lucas Buck in "American Gothic : The Movie”. Producer Craig Marquardo [“Sway”] says Cole was on board the moment he heard that it was a go picture. The film – which will be a re-telling of the events of the television series – has also signed original cast members Brenda Bakke, Nick Searcy and Jake Weber. It’s believed many of the other original players – including young Lucas Black, who’s now too old to play the role of the child, Caleb – will be replaced. Sam Raimi is circling the film as a possible directing gig. “American Gothic” aired from September 1995 to July 1996. Executive Prodced by Sam Raimi and Robert G. Tapert and created by Shaun Cassidy, it told the story of a charming small-town Sheriff who seems to be posses a hellish power that’s used on anyone who gets in the way of his plans. It was axed after only one season, but developed quite a following in that short amount of time. It’s planned that a new season of the series will follow the eventual film.

PATTERN RECOGNITION: Director Peter Weir (Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World) is attached to direct PATTERN RECOGNITION, a thriller at Warner Bros. Weir will co-write the script with David Arata. The film follows the adventures of a marketing expert who finds herself in a dangerous puzzle when she's hired to track down the source of a strange collection of video footage on the Internet. William Gibson published the novel last year through Penguin Putnam.

Thursday, April 22:
THE VILLAGE: According to the ComingSoon website, Director M. Night Shyamalan will host an April 26 ABC telecast of THE SIXTH SENSE, during which he will present a world-premiere trailer for his next film, THE VILLAGE, which opens July 30. On May 3 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, Shyamalan hosts the ABC debut of UNBREAKABLE, during which he will showcase never-before-seen material for THE VILLAGE.

TOP VIDEOS: The Hollywood Reporter indicates that MASTER AND COMMANDER: THE FAR SIDE OF THE WORLD sold more than 2 million combined DVD and VHS units during its first day in release Tuesday, according to 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment executives.

SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW: SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW, will have to wait until September to take flight. Paramount Pictures' retro-futuristic action-adventure movie starring Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie, has postponed the film originally scheduled for release on June 25. Paramount said the shift comes because of moves on the part of its competitors. "Sky Captain," which first-time director Kerry Conran shot with his actors performing in front of green screens with elaborate CG settings and effects added in postproduction, had been scheduled to open a week before Sony Pictures' "Spider-Man 2," which was originally set to bow Friday, July 2. However, at last month's ShoWest convention, Sony said it was moving "Spider-Man's" debut up two days to Wednesday, June 30. With "Spider-Man" previews expected to take place Tuesday night, June 29, that would have left "Sky Captain" just four days before it had to fend off "Spider-Man."

24: FOX has issued renewals for a number of programs, including the real-time drama "24". "24" received full-season orders -- 24 episodes in the case of "24".

THE WRONG ELEMENT: Harrison Ford has decided to jump into a new thriller from writer Joe Forte. According to Variety, THE WRONG ELEMENT, will have Ford play a security chief for a global bank whose family is kidnapped. He's asked to topple his own security safeguards and steal $37 million from the bank to save his family. Then he has to stop the kidnappers, who've created a complex trail that will make him look guilty of embezzlement.

DERAILED: Variety reports that Clive Owen (King Arthur) has joined DERAILED for Miramax Films and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. Swedish helmer Mikael Hafstrom is making his English- language directing bow on the thriller, in which the life of an advertising executive takes an unpredictable turn when he misses his morning train to the office. Stuart Beattie (Collateral) adapted the screenplay from James Siegel's novel.

IRON MAN: According to The Hollywood Reporter, X-Men and X2: X-Men United screenwriter David Hayter has signed on to rewrite IRON MAN, New Line Cinema's adaptation of the Marvel Comics character. In the comic, IRON MAN's real identity is that of billionaire industrialist Tony Stark, who develops an armored suit that lets him fly and shoot repulsor rays. The comic debuted in the 1960s, and IRON MAN's origin involved Stark being a prisoner of the Viet Cong. The comic evolved into Stark fighting spies, both political and industrial, while also battling alcoholism. The film will reportedly reflect a modern world climate, as well as modern technological, political and societal trends.

The show reunites miniseries stars Olmos, McDonnell, Katee Sackhoff (Starbuck) and Tricia Helfer (Number Six) with the rest of the Galactica cast. The series is executive produced by Ronald D.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Quentin Tarantino's KILL BILL VOL. 2 emerged as the victor of the weekend box office, earning an estimated $25.5 million from Friday to Sunday.

JOHNSON FAMILY VACATION is hanging in there at the third spot and Guillermo del Toro's HELLBOY took fourth. HELLBOY still has about $15 M to go before it recoups its production budget, which it should do before it departs from theaters. Disney's HOME ON THE RANGE and Warner Bros.' SCOOBY-DOO 2 both moved up one spot to fifth and sixth position, respectively, while MGM's WALKING TALL slipped two spots to seventh position. Last week's top grosser, THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST, fell to number nine this week and will probably fall from the top ten in the near future.

Prometheus Books Introduces Science Fiction/Fantasy Imprint
Pyr Poised to Set the Science Fiction World on Fire

Prometheus Books is proud to announce the launch of Pyr, a new science fiction and fantasy imprint, with titles anticipated in Spring 2005. Prometheus Books is entering its thirty-fifth year of successful independent publishing; since 1969, Prometheus has been a leader in publishing books for the scientific, professional, library, educational, popular and consumer markets.

For founder Paul Kurtz, the progression from popular science nonfiction to science fiction and fantasy is a natural one.

Science and science fiction have a long history of mutual inspiration and admiration that stretches back at least as far as the 19th Century, says Kurtz, Science fiction is vital for the human person. It feeds the mind, the heart, and the creative imagination. At its best, it can inspire positive images of the future.

Prometheus Books took its name from the courageous Greek god who gave fire to humans, lighting the way to reason, intelligence, and independence. Pyr, the Greek word for fire, continues this connection to fire and the liveliness of imagination.

Prometheus Books has tested the waters of science fiction before, most notably with the well-reviewed Nothing Sacred (2004) and its prequel, Galactic Rapture (2000), by Tom Flynn. Launching a dedicated imprint proves the commitment Prometheus Books is making to the genre.

Lou Anders has been named Editorial Director of Pyr. Anders joins Prometheus with over nine years of experience in science fiction and fantasy entertainment and media. He is the editor of four anthologies, including Live Without a Net (Roc, July 2003) and has published over 500 magazine articles. Previously, Anders was Executive Editor of online publishing site Bookface.com and the Los Angeles Liaison for Titan Publishing Group. Currently, he serves as the Senior Editor of Argosy Magazine.

The challenge of developing a new imprint from the ground up with its own identity yet one that complements Prometheus is an exciting prospect, notes Anders. Since the start of the new millennium, we've been seeing a renaissance of speculative fiction. With Pyr, we'll be looking to create science fiction for the Next Age.


I received a note from Bob Furnell, publisher of a fan magazine called TELLYVISION dedicated to American, British and Canadian television. He writes:

I'm looking for individuals who might be interested in writing articles for the magazine on any aspect of "Babylon 5, Crusade" or any other tv show that your interested in.

As its a fan magazine, unfortunately we aren't able to pay you for contributing, but what we are able to offer contributors, is a place to have your material published, a chance to have that material exposed to an audience in Canada, the US and the UK, and a free contributors copy of the issue that your article appears in. Plus, if you run a TV-related website, I'm even willing to give your site a plug in the magazine.

So if you're interested in writing for the magazine, I would love to welcome new contributors/writers on board. You can visit the magazine's official site at: http://www.tellyvision.tvheaven.com, and I can also be contacted by email through the site too.

Thanks for letting me take a few minutes of your time.



Here is a new feature for your enjoyment. I received some new book reviews that I've posted on a separate Book Review Page. Let me know if you enjoy this new feature -- and we'll continue to offer them as they are received. Agree with the review? Disagree? We can post those as well.


The Hubble project is in jeopardy. Please visit http://www.savethehubble.org/petition.jsp and sign the petition to have NASA reconsider funding for the project.


As I wander through e-bay (or other auction sites) and see materials for sale from various TV series -- or movies, I wondered what some favorite items would be. Do you like being able to buy a script so that you can read how your favorite episode was put together -- and perhaps what was not seen? Do you like to pick up items of apparel so that you can wear a t-shirt or hat or jacket to represent your favorite show? What are you willing to pay for?

Send in your thoughts, comments and ideas to sgbruckner@aol.com. I post them on the Discussion Page for everyone to share. See what has come in so far. If you see an old topic you want to respond to, go right ahead. We enjoy hearing from you.


CostCo continues to be my favorite store for DVDs. I picked up the Season 6 DVD of STARGATE SG-1 for $39.95 there on Saturday.

Ranger Dave found JEREMIAH nearly $20 less than Amazon's price at DVDsoon.com. Dave used Brian's suggestion and went to www.dvdpricesearch.net and found STARGATE SG-1 Seasons 1,2,&3 for $32.88 each (including ) tax and free shipping). There is even a coupon for $4 off purchases over $100 from that company. Season 4 was listed at a bit over $40.

I understand from Ranger Judy that all CostCo stores don't have the prices mentioned here. Hope some of the other options given help out.

Ranger Brian sent along a terrific tip for purchasing any DVDs. Go to http://www.dvdpricesearch.net/. You can do a search on any title and it will find the lowest price for you. It includes mailing information as well. Thanks Brian!

Ranger Frank in Seattle indicates that again, CostCo is saving Babylon 5 fans money!
Costco stores have a limited time sale on the Babylon 5 DVD sets. I went into a Costco in the Seattle area today, and they have seasons 1, 2 and 3 for $59.99 each -- about $25 less than Amazon.com, and $40 less than list price, as I recall. Season 4 is $64.99. But the deal is that if you buy Season 4, you get $20 off any one of the other seasons.

Thanks Frank for passing along the info. Other folks should check out CostCo for Babylon 5 and other DVDs. They usually have very competitive prices.

Ray Harryhausen: An Animated Life RAY HARRYHAUSEN: AN ANIMATED LIFE
by Ray Harryhausen & Tony Dalton, with a Foreword by Ray Bradbury

Ray Harryhausen is arguably the greatest stop-motion animator in the history of motion pictures, blazing new trails in special effects from the 1950s to the 1980s creating realistic dinosaurs, fantastic aliens, and imaginative mythological creatures. In the animator’s own words, accompanied by hundreds of previously unpublished photographs, sketches, and storyboards from his personal archives, this book details Harryhausen’s entire career — from 20 Million Miles to Earth and Earth vs. The Flying Saucers, to Clash of the Titans and Jason and the Argonauts.

Stargate Comic #2 STARGATE SG-1 Comic Issue #2 now in stores
MARCH 31, 2004

The second installment of the new Stargate SG-1 comic book series is now available at retailers worldwide. "P.O.W." #2 tells part two of a 3-issue story, in which Colonel Jack O'Neill finds himself a captive of the Goa'uld. "This is meant to be our introduction to the Stargate world for new comic fans and a fun treat for the hardcore fans," said author James Anthony Kuhoric. The issue features a recounting of the events of the original "Stargate" film, as well as the beginning of the TV series. "In addition to establishing the background as a starting point for future comic book series, this feature amalgams the two universes [of the film and the TV series] into SG-1 continuity. We get to see Richard Dean Anderson as O'Neill during the first Abydos mission!"

With a story by Kuhoric and art by Renato Guedes, "P.O.W." #2 carries a $3.50 price tag and is available in several different covers. Fans who can't find the issue can order it from the publisher's online store, at ComicCavalcade.com.

2BeContinued Guests Ranger Brian had a blast with Rick, Jason and Jeffrey at the 2BeContinued Convention last week in Indiana. He sent along a picture for everyone to enjoy. Thanks Brian.

If you would like to share your convention experience with your other Zocalo readers, send along a convention report. I will gladly post it for all to read. Got pictures? I'll post those as well.


Do you have extra copies of B5, Amazing Spiderman, Midnight Nation or Rising Stars comics you'd like to trade? How about those extra trading cards or B5 magazines? There are a lot of fans looking for these items -- and the Trading Post can help you buy or sell them. To see what's available, just use this link to the Trading Post. To have items included in The Trading Post, send a note to The Zocalo. Please put Trading Post in the subject line.


If you are looking for someone to talk about Babylon 5 and Crusade with, the Pen Pal section is for you! Check it out! Drop a note to someone who is feeling B5 withdrawal -- BIG TIME!

People thought a Pen Pal page was a good idea. If you would like to meet people who you could chat with or share your opinions of the show with, send along your e-mail or snail-mail address The Zocalo. It will be incorporated on the new Pen Page Page.


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 to actors....

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 timely fashion.

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.
