SURVIVE THE NIGHT---trailer released for the home invader movie starring Bruce Willis.


MOST DANGEROUS GAME---trailer released for the Quibi series starring Liam Hemsworth and Christoph Waltz.


THE WALKING DEAD---showrunner Angela Kang said Michonne's final episode leads up to the Rick Grimes theatrical movie, "One thing that emerged early on as feeling critically important to all of us on the writing side as well as Danai was the idea of concrete evidence of Rick's presence and a direction to go in. The boots are an iconic part of Rick's costume, would've been on his person at the time of the bridge explosion, and would be immediately recognizable to Michonne, so that's how we came to have this first clue."
Scott R. Gimple commented on Michonne appearing in the Rick Grimes movie, “Is it fair to assume? It’s definitely fair to assume that. There might even be her own story along the way. Some of it has to do with the way we’re playing around with the story right now. There’s this whole new story strand opened up with her departure.
We look at these stories as, ‘What was the point of her story?’. At the end of her journey where she has these unbelievable hints about Rick and a direction to go in, she still stops to help someone. That’s who she is and who she’s become. In some ways, even though she has a whole lot of story ahead of her, that completes her journey on THE WALKING DEAD.”

COSMIC SIN---Bruce Willis, Frank Grillo, Luke Wilson and Adelaide Kane will star in this sci fi movie in which the military and scientists team up to battle alien invaders who use mankind as host bodies.

A QUIET PLACE PART II---John Krasinski said the sequel will be scarier than the original movie, "I think you’re gonna be really scared. I mean the truth is, I think again organically you’re more scared because you care about these characters. In the first movie you were getting to know them. Now you know them, you don’t want anything to happen to them. The sound’s much more intense because you know the rules of sound. And so my point was to make the audience part of the movie."

JOAQUIN PHOENIX---director Werner Herzog commented on how he may have saved Joaquin Phoenix's life after Phoenix wrecked his car which flipped over in Los Angeles in 2006, “Yes, although he was upside down in this car, squished between airbags that had deployed and wildly trying to light a cigarette. I knew he must not light his cigarette, because there was gasoline dripping and he would have perished in a fireball.
So I tried to be clearly commandeering to him and tell him not to. But I was worried that if you gave him a command, he would strike his lighter even harder. So I managed to snatch the cigarette lighter from his hand. Then it became completely clear that it was Joaquin. But I didn’t want to speak to him after. I saw he wanted to come over and thank me. I just drove off.”

WESTWORLD---co-creator Jonathan Nolan said the GAME OF THRONES crossover with David Benioff and DB Weiss came from George R Martin, "'We’re also friendly with George R.R. Martin, and George had consistently since the first season said, “We’ve got to do a tie-in with ‘Game of Thrones.'” People forget that George was originally a TV writer and he came up in the TV world in which you’d occasionally have these crossover shows, which the fans would f—ing freak out over. So George had always been pitching the crossover show."'
Also, in the Benioff/Weiss scene, Costa Rica is mentioned which led to some speculation that there might be a JURASSIC PARK crossover with WESTWORLD because Jurassic Park is located on Isla Nublar, Costa Rica and both novels were written by Michael Crichton. The other possibility is that the Costa Rica comments was simply an inside joke about the Crichton connection between the two sci fi franchises.

GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE---Finn Wolfhard assured fans about the reboot movie, “Older GHOSTBUSTERS fans will find it’s a really, really faithful approach to the series.”

TRIVIA---decorated Vietnam veteran Dale Dye is well known for his association with Steven Spielberg as a technical adviser and actor on SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, BAND OF BROTHERS, THE PACIFIC and other projects. But Dye's first association with Spielberg was in CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THE THIRD KIND where he played the Special Forces radioman who blows his whistle while soldiers search Devil's Tower for Roy Neary (Richard Dreyfuss) and his companions.

Great story about Dale Dye.

When they were filming episodes of Space Above & Beyond, theres one mostly wordless episode (Who Monitors The Birds?) where the lone surviving character happens upon a grim specter of death in the form of a woman/banshee/something. At some point, Dye was between sets or takes and ran into the actress and looked her dead in the eye, saying "Oh, so we meet again."

Apparently when he was out in the thick on a tour in Vietnam, he saw the real apparition at a distance, something even writer William Manchester wrote about when he was in the Pacific Theater.
