MONDAY, OCTOBER 19

THE LAST STARFIGHTER---Jonathan Betuel, who co-wrote the original 1984 sci fi movie, said he and co-writer Gary Whitta (ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY) are working on a sequel, "It looks like we’ll be making the deal to get it going. Gary’s a gifted collaborator, we’ll be writing the script together but it’s taken a long time. I had to go through a process that took years to recapture the rights, but that was recently completed and although nothing is ever clear sailing, it looks like we have a really good opportunity now. So I’m really looking forward to taking it up.”
He added, “The leads are now parents and time has passed. It’s not a remake, it’s going to continue the story. What’s changed is time itself, certainly as the video world and the alien world have continued to tick away. It’s not a time capsule of the ’80s by any means, we’re taking it to the next level. Passing the torch…or the joystick.”





THE MISERABLE ADVENTURES OF BURT SQUIRE ABOARD THE HORN HIGH YO---Harrison Ford and Ed Helms star in this comedy movie based on the true story of a disillusioned man who goes on a sailing vacation and is shipwrecked with the boat's maniac skipper.





THE UNBEARABLE WEIGHT OF MASSIVE TALENT---photo of Nicolas Cage on the Croatian film set of the movie in which he is paid $1 million to attend the birthday of a billionaire who is really a drug lord who has kidnapped his wife and daughter and the Mexican president's daughter.





THE BATMAN---a photo from the London film set shows a man wearing a Superman costume and a woman wearing a Wonder Woman at a Halloween costume party. This confirms that Superman and Wonder Woman do exist in the Robert Pattinson movie's universe and might mean the two superheroes might appear in this movie or a later one.





STAR TREK: DISCOVERY---CBS All Access renewed the series for Season 4. Also, Alex Kurtzman said the plan is to have STAR TREK tv shows through 2027, “Heather Kaden and Aaron Baiers, who work with me at [production company] Secret Hideout – we literally just got off a call with the network mapping out with us through 2027. Now when I say that, it’s not like it’s set in stone. It’s just, ‘Here’s a plan. Here’s what we’re looking at. Here’s how the different shows are going to drop.’"

PANAMA---Mel Gibson and Cole Hauser star in this movie about an ex-Marine who is sent by his commanding officer on an undercover mission that goes awry.

CALICO JOE---movie underway based on the John Grisham baseball novel. George Clooney is the producer and might direct the movie.

THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E.---Armie Hammer talked about a possible sequel to the movie that also starred Henry Cavill, If someone was like, ‘Hey, do you want to do a sequel?’ I would be like, ‘Hell yeah, let’s go!’ … I hear it. I get people being like, ‘Are you going to do a sequel?’ The answer is, ‘I hope so! I’d love to.’
At one point, Lionel Wigram, who was the producer and also who wrote the original script, he and I talked about ideas and he told me an idea that he had for it, and I was like, ‘That sounds great! Whatever your idea [is], let’s just do it!’ I don’t know, man. Keep pushing. Hopefully one day we can do it. I’d love to do it.”

STATIC SHOCK---Warner Bros./DC movie underway based on the superhero. Michael B. Jordan is the producer.

TRIVIA---more James Bond movie trivia.
Eunice Gayson played the first Bond Girl, Sylvia Trench, in DR. NO and set up James Bond's classic franchise line.
In the Le Cercle club scene, Trench has lost several times, but decides to raise the stakes. James Bond says, "I admire your courage, Miss, er...?" Trench replies, "Trench, Sylvia Trench. I admire your luck, Mr..." Lighting a cigarette, Bond replies, "Bond, James Bond."
Gayson returned as Sylvia Trench in FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE.
In GOLDENEYE, Pierce Brosnan's first Bond movie, Gayson's daughter, Kate, appears in the casino scene as a tribute to her mother.

In the Le Cercle gambling scene, Trench has lost several times, but decides to raise the stakes. James Bond says, "I admire your courage, Miss, er...?" Trench replies, "Trench, Sylvia Trench. I admire your luck, Mr..." Lighting a cigarette, Bond replies, "Bond, James Bond."

I'd watch another UNCLE movie with Cavill and Hammer.

Sylvia Trench was supposed recurr further, only to be left behind at the beginning of more films as Bond is called away. Establishing a female FB for Bond (in the 60s!) might have been kinda interesting.

But I don't like too much continuity in my Bond films. A reference to Tracy every five years or so feels about right.
Regularly (but not always directly) chasing after Blofeld feels about right, but being related to him is just stupid.


I never noticed the Trench character established the 'Last name, First & Last Name' phrase.
I came to Dr. No late, after seeing several later of the movies.

Couldn't we have had Kate instead of Femke Jansen, then at least it would have been believeable that Xenia used her looks to lure in men because Femke Jansen being physically beautiful is as much scifi as Julia Roberts being a prety woman.

Ritchie’s U.N.C.L.E. Movie had zero resemblance to the TV show and wasn’t helped by the two leads who appear to have gone through a charisma and talent by-pass.

Fortunately the movie flopped so there isn’t too much chance of us being inflicted with a sequel.

RE: The Last Starfighter- It was a fun self contained film that just happened to have great chemistry. Its not something you can really duplicate.

RE: Star Trek- Another 27 years of Star Drek? WTF!?!?

I always suspected you lived in the past, Solium. I guess this proves it, if you think 2027 is 27 years from now!

Math's not my strong point I guess. Though I can't remember my age much less the year.

No worries. This year (2020) is best forgotten, anyway!

Maybe with the new STAR TREK shows, seven years seems like 27 years.

THE LAST STARFIGHTER was adapted into a charming, tuneful stage musical. Excellent score. CD available. Music by Walter “Skip” Kennon, who also wrote the wonderful score for a musical version of Jack Finney’s TIME AND AGAIN, which has not been commercially released.

Cavill and Hammer have plenty of charisma and talent.

And who cares if it bore zero resemblance to the TV show. Why are you so stuck on the past?

Why bother calling it the Man From U.N.C.L.E then? The TV show was ripe for updating but that IP has now been tarnished for years because of Ritchie’s charmless, unconnected effort.

And if they remade King Kong but it substituted a small kitten in place of a giant gorilla would you say critics of that decision were “too stuck in the past”?

You need to find an analogy that has a better chance of happening if you want me to answer your question.
