    What's a "drive-in?"

    What's a "double-feature?"

    Lance Henriksen Wants ‘Millennium’ Movie | Geeks of Doom

    and so do I.

    Out of the realm of television from the 1990s, Chris Carter‘s Millennium has to be my favorite. An offshoot from The X-Files, the show focused on Frank Black – played by Lance Henriksen – working for a group known only as the Millennium Group, who consults the FBI and local law enforcement on odd crimes and serial killers. I’ve often made the case for the possibility of a Millennium movie, continuing from where the show left off – and now Henriksen echoes those sentiments of the cult following of the series.

    Through press appearances for the upcoming animated series of TRON: Uprising, Henriksen let the cat out of the bag to Coming Soon about his hopes for a Millennium film.



    “I think it’s going to happen. I really do… There’s a big push on right now and there’s a lot of crazy people involved in it. They’ve written a book with interviews with everybody that was on the show including Frank Spotnitz and me… It’s crazy that you wouldn’t give it a shot. It doesn’t have to be a $30 million movie either. There are a lot of fans out there in 65 countries. I can’t go into any other country without them wondering when the movie is going to be made.”

    The television show went through several forms of evolution during its airing, with the first season being more of a creepy Se7en-style atmosphere. The second season began delving into the more disturbing aspects of the Millennium Group, inserting conspiracy and prophecy on top of the serial killer plotlines. The third season follows Black attempting to piece his life together after leaving the Millennium Group, only to continue to be shadowed by members of the society.

    After the conclusion of the series, Henriksen made an appearance on an episode of The X-Files, titled “Millennium”, that would wrap up loose ends associated with the countdown to the new millennium. Coupled with the serial killing and prophecy-based conspiracies, Frank Black has to work with Mulder and Scully to stop an extreme sub-group that has fragmented from the main Millennium Group.

    It’s been 13 years since that episode, but Lance Henriksen judges that the time gap would actually be more help than hindrance to the development of a Millennium film.

    “Ever since 9/11, the world has changed so radically. If Millennium was made today with those characters, it would be a far more interesting show than the limited palette they had with serial killers. I love the idea of a non-judgmental character like Frank Black was… He wanted to know why and how all these things happened, but he knew that judging someone for what they’ve done would just get in the way of finding out things.”

    Henriksen went on to elucidate how he would like to see some terrorist-based plot for such a film in which his character would be placed in another country, and have to overcome several cultural barriers to profile his targets and win the day. There is promise with the idea, though of course, there’s no official confirmation on whether a Millennium film will ever get made – but with the fans continuing to call for it, and now Henriksen very publicly make some noise about the idea, it is certainly possible that Chris Carter would sit up and pay attention.

    Review: Ridiculous and giddy, Battleship is way more miss than hit

    I don't think this one is gonna be worthy of it's own thread, but if someone else feels differently have at it. Seems a shame because I like Peter Berg as a director, just seems like this was a bad idea from the get-go. And, it'll make a ****load of money as this summer's Transformers movie. Sigh...

    It's a great movie. For a Sunday when nothing is really on besides Megavolcano and you have no where to go and you don't really feel like getting dressed and cereal is sounding like a good lunch and perhaps dinner plan and you don't have to pay for it. Solid film.

    CLOUD ATLAS Release Date and Runtime

    The Wachowski Siblings and Tom Twyker‘s highly ambitious adaptation of Cloud Atlas now has a release date and a run-time. According to Thompson on Hollywood, Warner Bros. has picked up distribution rights at Cannes for $20 million, and will release the movie on December 6th. Additionally, the movie reportedly runs at 2-hours and 44-minutes, which seems about right when you consider that the movie spans six time periods, and you have an ensemble cast each playing multiple roles. For example, Hugh Grant will be playing six “incredibly evil” characters in the movie, and Halle Berry said one of her roles is a Jewish woman in the 1930s, and another is an old tribal woman.

    Hit the jump for a synopsis. Cloud Atlas also stars Tom Hanks, Susan Sarandon, Hugo Weaving, Ben Whishaw, James D’Arcy, and Jim Sturgess. Surprisingly, the only other film set to open the same weekend as Cloud Atlas is Hyde Park on Hudson, but the following Friday is the blockbuster one-two punch of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and Les Miserables.


    Here’s the synopsis of David Michod‘s novel, Cloud Atlas:

    A reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific in 1850; a disinherited composer blagging a precarious livelihood in between-the-wars Belgium; a high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan’s California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified “dinery server” on death-row; and Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisation — the narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each other’s echoes down the corridor of history, and their destinies are changed in ways great and small.

    Ender's Game author says most of the film is NOT based on his book | Blastr

    Keep in mind, most authors are cranky when it comes to film adaptations.
