ALIEN ENCOUNTERS PREMIERES TOMORROW ON SCIENCE
03/12/12 @ 1:43 pm EST
Source: Discovery | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment

--The World Premiere of ALIEN ENCOUNTERS: THE MESSAGE debuts on SCIENCE Tuesday, March 13, at 10:00 PM ET/PT ALIEN ENCOUNTERS: THE ARRIVAL PREMIERES on Tuesday, March 20 at 10:00 PM ET/PT--

ALIEN ENCOUTNERS brings together renowned experts including Nick Sagan and SETI Institute’s Dr. Jill Tarter to explore how alien life might communicate with Earth. Some of the world’s leading scientists explain the scientific, cultural and psychological effects a first contact with aliens would have on humans. ALIEN ENCOUNTERS is a part of SCIENCE’s Are We Alone? initiative happening the entire month of March.

Episode Descriptions:

Part 1- The Message premieres on Tuesday, March 13 at 10 PM (ET/PT)
Part 2- The Arrival premieres on Tuesday, March 20 at 10 PM (ET/PT)

In two dramatic hours, ALIEN ENCOUNTERS lays out a plausible hypothetical scenario for a first contact event. What would really happen if we got a message from space? How will humans react when we learn that a message from a distant technology or a spacecraft is on its way to Earth? Will humans learn from aliens, or become colonial subjects? Some of the world’s leading astrophysicists, astrobiologists, and sci-fi writers help unravel the scientific, cultural and psychological impact of this world-changing global event. This show is made in cooperation with The SETI Institute which was founded in 1984 and had renowned astrophysicist Carl Sagan as one of its Board of Trustee Members. Carl’s son Nick is now following in his father’s footsteps wondering, “How will we meet our galactic neighbors?”

DC COMICS ANNOUNCES "MIDNIGHTER & APOLLO" LIMITED SERIES

apollo midnighter

Midnighter and Apollo are returning to comics, and this time they're doing so together. Announced via the New York Times, DC Comics is launching a "Midnighter & Apollo" six-issue limited series this October. The creative team behind the recent "Midnighter"ongoing series will be involved in the new book; series writer Steve Orlando is returning, and "Midnighter" artist ACO will provide covers for the series. Interior art will be handled byFernando Blanco ("Batman Eternal").

The series will reunite the two for the first time in years; their on-again/off-again relationship has been mostly off-again as of late. Apollo appeared sporadically in Orlando's most recent "Midnighter" series, although the two were decidedly not a couple in that series. “They have a firmer idea of who they are, and they’ve become stronger and more confident together,” Orlando told the New York Times. “This is the World’s Finest Couple -- kicking back and making each other better than they are on their own.”

Created by Warren Ellis and Bryan Hitch, the characters were originally introduced in 1998's "Stormwatch" #4. They appeared in that book as well as "Stormwatch's" follow-up, "The Authority," both of which were published by WildStorm outside of the main DC Universe. Their adventures with that team, which saw their commitment to each other grow to include marriage and adopting a child, were reset when the characters were folded into the main DC continuity as a result of the New 52. In this new status quo, Midnighter received an ongoing series that ended in May 2016.

"Midnighter & Apollo" #1 from writer Steve Orlando, cover artist ACO and interior artist Fernando Blanco arrives in stores this October.

After giving fans a tease of “Sledgehammer” in a trailer for “Star Trek Beyond”earlier this week, Rihanna has dropped the full-length music video for the song. The clip finds Rihanna, decked out in extraterrestrial garb, performing “Sledgehammer” to an audience of none on a barren wasteland of an alien planet. While the video is absent of clips from the Justin Lin-directed “Star Trek” film, it does feature the Enterprise zooming through space and crossing paths with the singer’s celestial incarnation.

Video: https://youtu.be/BXhIT4MpRis

A new video has also been posted to the “Star Trek” Facebook page that features the multiple Grammy-award-winning singer revealing her longstanding love for the franchise.

MARVEL NOW! TEASERS PAY OFF WITH ENIGMATIC 'DIVIDED WE STAND' GROUP SHOT
06/30/16 @ 8:57 am EST
Source: Comic Book Resources | Categories: Marvel | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


For the past two weeks, Marvel Comics has teased its upcoming fall Marvel NOW! lineup with a series of teasers, all illustrated by veteran artist Mike Deodato. In each one, two Marvel characters are paired -- typically one more recognizable, one less so -- with a shatter effect between them, along with the words "Divided we..."

Marvel has now released the payoff image (via FastCompany) to those teasers, also illustrated by Deodato. It's a group shot featuring two camps on Marvel heroes and antiheroes, proclaiming "Divided We Stand" -- seemingly confirming that current event series "Civil War II" ends with a still-fractured Marvel landscape. Other than that, the image raises a lot more questions than answers (click for a high-res version).

MARVELNOWfinal

The left side of the image features a crew of comparatively morally ambiguous characters, with plenty of former (?) villains and mercenaries. From left: Solo, Foolkiller, Jessica Jones, Quake, Captain Marvel, Elektra, Thor Odinson, American Kaiju or Fin Fang Foom, Victor Von Doom, Slapstick, Captain America (the Steve Rogers version, who was recently and rather famously revealed to be a secret Hydra agent due to Cosmic Cube-induced reality rewriting), Black Panther, Gamora and Cable.

The other side features mainly younger and newer characters, along with a veteran, Doctor Strange: Gwenpool, Mosaic, Miss America Chavez, Squirrel Girl, the All-New Wasp, Prowler, Moon Girl, Riri Williams from the current "Invincible Iron Man" series, Hawkeye (Kate Bishop), the Hulk (possibly the current, Totally Awesome version, though he looks a lot more intense than expected from Amadeus Cho), Spider-Man (Miles Morales), Ms. Marvel and the aforementioned Stephen Strange.

It's also worth pointing out the characters not on this image -- not that every big Marvel hero can be represented in a teaser like this, but the absences of Spider-Man (Peter Parker), Thor (Jane Foster), Captain America (Sam Wilson), Daredevil and Deadpool are notable. Most striking is the lack of Iron Man, made more egregious by the fact that Doom is holding his helmet and the fact that Captain Marvel, the leader of the forces opposing Iron Man in "Civil War II," is seen prominently. What this may mean for the outcome of "Civil War II" remains to be seen -- and anything released by Marvel with only two "Civil War II" issues on stands could very well be a red herring.

Cable is the only real X-Men character on either side of the image, but that's not the only Marvel franchise underrepresented -- Gamora is the only cosmic character present, and none of the royal family of the Inhumans are seen (though Mosaic and Ms. Marvel are both Inhumans themselves). While upcoming film stars such as Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel and Black Panther are all in the mix, Luke Cage -- the star of Marvel's next Netflix series to debut -- isn't around, though his wife, Jessica Jones, is.
VINNIE JONES JOINS "KINGSMAN" SEQUEL IN MYSTERY ROLE

Vinnie Jones has joined the upcoming "Kingsman: The Secret Service" sequel from 20th Century Fox, reuniting him with director Matthew Vaughn, who produced Jones' acting debut in "Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels."

Although Jones' role has yet to be disclosed, the actor is best known for playing bad guys. With Julianne Moore rumored as the film's villain earlier this year, their photo together could hint at an alliance between her character and Jones'. The source material, Mark Millar & Dave Gibbons'"Kingsman" comic book, has no sequel, which also opens up the possibility that Jones could be a secondary villain, or even the film's main antagonist.

Vaughn and Jones also worked together on the Guy Ritchie-directed "Snatch," and the former football player's credits include a memorable turn as Juggernaut in "X-Men: The Last Stand" as well as roles in "EuroTrip" and "Arrow." He will next be seen in the upcoming "The Magnificent Seven" remake.

Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Colin Firth and Sophie Cookson are all reprising their roles from the original film, joined by newcomers Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges, Pedro Pascal and Elton John.

Like the original, "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" features a script by Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman, with Vaughn back in the director's chair. The film is slated for release on June 16, 2017.

Directed by Jon Watts, and from a script by "Vacation's" Jonathan M. Goldstein and John Francis Daley, "Spider-Man: Homecoming" is slated for a for a July 7, 2017 release.
AQUAMAN POSES WITH TRIDENT IN STILLS FROM "BATMAN V SUPERMAN" ULTIMATE CUT

Less than three weeks ahead of the release of the "Batman v Superman" Ultimate Cut on Blu-ray/DVD, new behind-the-scenes photos have surfaced of Jason Momoa's Aquaman in the film.

As those who saw the film already know, Momoa's Aquaman very briefly made a splash in "Batman v Superman," in a dark, underwater cameo. In the new pics we get a much better look at Aquaman's costume and trident before the CGI was added -- revealing a gold armor that appeared much less shiny in the final version of the film.

Take a look at the behind-the-scenes Aquaman photos below:

Ghostbusters-preview

The Ghostbusters are sporting new gear, thanks to improvements on their proton packs in this new behind-the-scenes video.

While starting out with ghost sensors and video cameras, the team will develop not only the proton packs that fans know and love, but much more proton-inspired weapons. “In the world of ghost warfare, these ladies have it going on,” says Kate McKinnon.

This film will include proton grenades, proton gloves, ghost chippers, ghost shockers, and ghost pistols — all inspired by the proton packs. “There’s no movie magic. Do they look heavy and sharp? That’s because they are,” says Melissa McCarthy, who is joined by Leslie Jones, Kristen Wiig, and Chris Hemsworth in the film.

“Ghostbusters” is directed by Paul Feig and opens in theaters July 15.
