TUESDAY, JUNE 30

STAR WARS---when a fan tweeted, "Say a genuinely nice thing about the Star Wars prequels", Rian Johnson replied, “Lucas made a gorgeous 7 hour long movie for children about how entitlement and fear of loss turns good people into fascists, and did it while spearheading nearly every technical sea change in modern filmmaking of the past 30 years.”





STAR TREK: PICARD---Gates McFadden hinted she might be returning as Dr. Beverly Crusher, "Well, I don’t know. There’s a good chance, let’s put it that way. But I have no contract signed."





TERMINATOR: DARK FATE---co-star Mackenzie Davis commented on the possibility of another sequel, “I really loved the movie and I’m so proud of what we did, but there wasn’t a demand for it [at the box office] and to think that there’d be a demand for a seventh film is quite insane. You should just pay attention to what audiences want – and they want new things and I want new things. There are many interesting people that don’t fit the mold of those who make these big franchises who have not had the chance to make movies. We should be investing in them right now.”

THE INVISIBLE MAN---Elisabeth Moss commented on a possible sequel, "Look, if people want it that’s kind of a big part of what we need in order to do it. So put the word out there that YOU want it and then I’ll help!"

JUSTICE LEAGUE---Ray Fisher, who played Cyborg, originally supported writer/directorJoss Whedon, who replaced Zack Snyder, “Joss is a great guy and Zack picked a good person to come in and clean up, finish up for him.” However, recently Fisher recanted his high opinion of Whedon, “I’d like to take a moment to forcefully retract every bit of this statement.” Fisher is one of the supporters of the Snyder Cut version of the movie.

THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER---Anthony Mackie commented on the Marvel/Disney+ tv series, “We’re shooting it exactly like a movie. Everybody who had worked on TV before was like, ‘I’ve never worked on a TV show like this.’ The way in which we were shooting, it feels exactly like we were shooting the movie cut up into the show. So instead of a two-hour movie, a six or eight-hour movie.
It was the same group of people, coming together to make it work. And so the stunt stuff – everything is just on another level. Every show, every movie, they just push it – they push the envelope so much. So hopefully, knock on wood, we’ll be going back soon.”

DEBRIS---NBC sci fi tv series underway about two agents from two different continents who team up to investigate debris from a destroyed alien spaceship.

LOST---co-creator Damon Lindelof said the original plan was for LOST to run for only three seasons, “I’m not trying to be diplomatic, I’m trying to give you the most accurate answer the way that I remember it, which is the conversations about wanting the show to end began as early as the pilot. One of the notes that we were getting back from ABC was ‘When are you gonna resolve these mysteries? And once you resolve these mysteries, why will people keep watching the show?’ And Level One of that was, ‘Well we’re gonna be introducing new mysteries as we go. So hopefully for every one that we answer, we’ve set up a new compelling mystery. If we get that balance right, they’re not gonna stack up.’ I think that we can both agree that we did not get that balance right.”
He added, “LOST was like, ‘What’s in the hatch? What’s up with the monster? Who’s the original Sawyer? How did Locke get in the wheelchair? What is the nature of the island? Why does it appear to be moving? Who are the Others?’ There were all of these compelling mysteries and so we were saying, ‘We wanna have this stuff answered by the end of Season 1, this stuff answered by the end of Season 2, and then the show basically ends after about three years.’ That was the initial pitch, and they were not even hearing it. They looked at particularly me — Carlton [Cuse] came on about midway through Season 1 and he joined the chorus of me — but they were just like, ‘Do you understand how hard it is to make a show that people want to watch? And people like the show? So why would we end it? You don’t end shows that people are watching.’”

OZARK---Netflix renewed the series for Season 4 which will be the last season. Season 4 will be expanded with two parts of seven episodes each.

ABC---the network decided not to order the THIRTYSOMETHING sequel and THE BRIDES, a modern day horror series about the brides of Dracula in New York.

COLIN IN BLACK AND WHITE---ex-NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and Ava DuVernay are developing a Netflix miniseries on the early days of the controversial sports figure.

TRIVIA---actress/photographer Koo Stark is best known for her well-publicized 18 month-long affair with Prince Andrew, Duke of York, which ended under pressure from Queen Elizabeth. Early in her career, Stark was a candidate to play Princess Leia in the original STAR WARS. She did not get the role, but she did get the role of Camie, a friend of Luke Skywalker on Tatooine. Unfortunately, Stark's scene with Mark Hamill was deleted in the final version of the movie.

The prequels were for children? They had a lot of limb dismemberment and decapitations for that Rian. They were aimed at everyone, I thought. Also nothing about Clones is gorgeous. It looks mostly awful and always did.

Ozark is great! Just finished season 3. So it sure a 14 episode final season, not bad.

Justice League will probably still be total rubbish and the Cyborg a non-entity in any version.

Zach Snyder has a problem with his new film, one of the main actors turns out to be a sex offender or had been charged or accused which equals guilt. So he's going to have to reshoot a bit of that or can it, probably.

Prince Andrew should be in jail.

"Gates McFadden hinted she might be returning as Dr. Beverly Crusher."

In her return, we will find that she is an alcoholic and has been fired from Starfleet for performing illegal medical trials on humanoids from an oppressed alien race in hopes of finding a cure for the neurological disease that has transformed her son Wesley into a psychotic, snarling, alcoholic captain of a stolen freighter who claws and rips his own face in order to receive visions from "God" (the same one that was apparently killed in Star Trek V now that the events of Star Trek: The Original Series and its subsequent films have been designated "non-canon").

Based on the horror and disgust of pre-2017 fans of Star Trek, the producers of Picard knew that this would be a winner of a subplot for the second season.

(Rumor has it that a beloved character from Deep Space Nine will be brought back to die a horrible death, but producers are still in negotiations with several actors in the original DS9 cast. There is no rush to cast as it will be possible to edit this gratuitous scene into any point of the season.)

Do you understand how hard it is to make a show that people want to watch? And people like the show? So why would we end it? You don’t end shows that people are watching.

So, why is Ozark ending? Couldn't they make a run for it and change the show name to The Ozark Run?

Rian Johnson is quite good at maths, isn't he?
Crediting a 20 year old film with 30 years of Sea Changes!

Oo, oo- like reintroducing the Borg for no reason only to literally throw them away for no equally good reason (as well as every other story element in this show)?

It's like a lifetime of writing shitty blockbusters has in no way prepared the producers to write stories for a thoughtful, deeply-felt, novelistic television series. Who would have thought?
