Listen to such pulsing wavelengths as Fall on Your Sword’s ANOTHER EARTH, Nathan Johnson’s LOOPER Nima Fakhara’s THE SIGNAL or Steven Price’s Oscar-winning GRAVITY, and you’ll pick up loud and clear on the burgeoning film scoring genre I prefer to call “alt. sci-fi.” It’s a plane of electro-orchestral existence where traditional symphonic melody (or at least the spirit of it) gets fused with an acoustical rock and roll vibe that can veer from psychedelia to grunge. Organic samples of everything from scraped metal to car engines are warped into new, unearthly entities, joining with electronic percussion and atmospheres that can […]Read On »

Bruce Boxleitner is sitting in an empty function room at the Beverly Hilton, giving one on one interviews during the Television Critics Association press tour. He takes a throat lozenge, explaining that he’s fending off a cold. “I was down at Comic-Con – that’s why I’m just totally fatigued, I never stopped for four days, and then flew right to Canada and went to work. So these are good problems to have.” Boxleitner is famed for his work in science-fiction films and TV – he’s the title character (and his human doppelganger Alan Bradley) in TRON and TRON: LEGACY, valiant […]Read On »

In ABC’s ONCE UPON A TIME, Sundays at 8 PM, a lot of fairytale characters – including Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin), Prince Charming (Josh Dallas), Jiminy Cricket aka Archie Hopper ((Raphael Sbarge), Regina aka the Wicked Queen (Lana Parrilla) and Mr. Gold aka Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) – have been relocated by a curse from Fairytale Land to Storybrooke, Maine.

Exclusive Interview: Adam Horowitz chats about ONCE UPON A TIME

ABC’s new series ONCE UPON A TIME, airing Sundays at 8 PM, is definitely a fantasy, but beyond that, it’s hard to compare to anything on the air, now or in the past. The short version of the premise is that the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) exiles many characters from Fairytale Land, including Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin), Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) and Rumpelstiltskin (Robert Carlyle), to the picturesque small town of Storybrooke, Maine. The erstwhile fairytale folk have no notion of their true identities but young Henry (Jared Gilmore), the adopted son of the mayor, has a glimmer of what […]Read On »

Yes, Season 5 will sadly be the last season of NBC’s series CHUCK (which moves to Friday nights in the fall. It stars Zachary Levi, Yvonne Strahovski, Joshua Gomez and Adam Baldwin, and at Comic-Con 2011 today, while speaking to the press, the stars and creators spoke about the comedy spy series that always seems to evade eternal cancellation by NBC. For co-creator Chris Fedak, the ending is bittersweet, but they have a lot of ammo so the season will end with a big bang even as the show makes some major changes including having Chuck now owning the Buy […]Read On »

Exclusive: CHUCK star Zachary Levi talks TRON: LEGACY and what Morgan and Check would have thought about the sequel

Garrett Hedlund in TRON: LEGACY | © 2010 Walt Disney Pictures With CHUCK being a very geek savvy show, and displaying the poster for 1982’s TRON in the room of Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi) since Season 1, it was a bit strange not to have any mention of TRON: LEGACY in any of the Season 4 episodes. Granted, Warner Bros. owns CHUCK and Disney owns TRON, but couldn’t there have been a little bit of a crossover? While speaking recently with Levi himself, ASSIGNMENT X asked him about TRON: LEGACY and what Morgan (Joshua Gomez) and Chuck probably thought about […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Where will TRON 3 go? Original TRON director Steven Lisberger reveals his thoughts on a third film – Part 2

Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund in TRON: LEGACY | ©2010 Disney Enterprises

When director Steven Lisberger created TRON in 1982, he had no idea he would be influencing a whole new generation (and foreshadowing the computer revolution that was on the horizon). Now 28 years after his seminal film, the sequel TRON: LEGACY finally arrived with Lisberger producing and Joe Kosinski taking the helm. The film finds Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) trapped in the computer grid of his own making and held hostage by a young, computer program version of himself dubbed Clu. It’s up to Flynn’s grown-up son Sam (Garrett Hedlund) to enter the computer world to save him. TRON: LEGACY […]Read On »
