babylon 5`s j. michael straczynski writing terminator comic that explores john connor`s future war. from the time many of us first encountered j. michael straczynski via his excellent and underrated babylon 5, its been patently obvious that this dude is a workaholic. he doesnt just like to keep multiple irons in the fire, he likes to keep multiple fires, each at full-iron capacity. over the years fans of jms have followed him through multiple tv series, high-profile comic runs, and a half-dozen different movies, including work on this summer`s surprise hit world war z and the academy award-nominated changeling. he`s shown no sign of slowing down these days, and now he`s added another new project to his slate. a comic series set during the future war of the terminator franchise. dark horse comics --- which has been pumping out terminator comics for years now --- today announced that straczynski will be teaming with artist pete woods for a 12-issue series called terminator the final battle. the final battle will be set in the aftermath of the mediocre terminator salvation, with an adult john connor continuing to lead the human resistance against the forces of skynet. connor`s future war is an element explored to varying degrees by the four terminator films and the sarah connor chronicles tv spinoff, but there`s still plenty of potential to explore for a talented writer like jms. the new terminator series won`t be the first time jms`s career path has crossed with james cameron. several years back straczynski worked with cameron on a surprisingly good forbidden planet prequel script, something that sounds like a terrible idea at first, but which in execution managed to honor the classic film while also giving it an unexpected twist.

x-men movie that could be brought to the big screen. `prince namor, the sub-mariner` the leader of the undersea atlantean empire, namor is one of the most badass heroes of all time. he first appeared waaaaaay back in 1939`s marvel comics #1, making him the first mutant and first antihero in comics. the dude is a total dick, and fans love him for it. he is a warrior who fights for the rights of the atlantean people- which often puts him at odds with the surface-dwellers who exploit and destroy the life in the earth`s oceans. over the past few years, he has been a prominent member of the x-men. he is the kanye west of the mutants- stating the opinion many have but dont have the balls to state. it is rumored he may be in line for a movie from marvel studios, but i hope he ends up in the x-men franchise. he is the original misunderstood mutant freedom fighter and he would be an excellent addition to the x-men movie universe. rights seem to be with marvel studios on this one, but he could always come to fox. `money rules all` and which every other proverbs apply.

predator and alien will play a part in fox`s  new malaysian theme park. theme parks are not generally known for catering to the hardcore sci-fi fan, sure, there have been attractions like star tours, the cylons on the universal studios tour, and even captain EO was genre themed, but those were all geared towards mainstream, all-ages audiences. there isn`t a lot of time and space devoted to the darker, more sinister side of sci-fi. this may all change soon, to a degree anyway, and assuming you`re willing to travel to malaysia. 20th century fox announced that it is partnering with a malaysian property company, genting malaysia, to open their first theme park, many of the parks attractions will revolve around more moderate fare, like `night at the museum, life of pi, ice age, and rio,`that sounds like pretty standard stuff, but there will also be `darker rides` that revolve around movies like `alien and predator`this is going to connect to an existing theme part outside of kuala lumpur called resorts world genting. though it has been around for more than 35 years, and took in 20 million visitors last year alone, the park will shut down operations on september 1 to make way for the wrecking ball. if everything goes according to schedule, fox`s new park should rise like a phoenix from the ashes sometime in 2016, the 125 million dollars renovation is part of a larger overhaul of genting`s malaysia resort. when you realize that the entire project will cost somewhere in the neighborhood of a billion dollars, 125 million barely feels like anything at all.

tragically short `but awesome` movie careers. `james dean` the death of james dean at the age of only 24 made him a cultural icon. james dean was killed in february of 1955, when his car collided with another at a reported speed of 85 miles per hour. in the following october, rebel without a cause was released and cemented his status as the poster child for the fast life, to live free and die young. though most would probably agree that it would have been preferable that he lived, few movie stars will ever reach the iconic status that `james dean`has with only one living year in the spotlight. `bruce lee` the american born but hong kong raised lee, first gained popularity with his role as kato, the true hero of the television show `the green hornet`his first movie `the big boss` was a big hit and was followed by `fist of fury` and `way of the dragon`which cemented his status, `enter the dragon` is the movie for which lee is best remembered made his martial arts popular in the west, whilst filming what would be only his fifth film, lee passed away at the age of 32. his death came six days before the release of `enter the dragon`and left `game of death`the film which features his iconic yellow jump suit- unfinished. `river phoenix`seen by some as a tragic replay of `james dean`river phoenix`was one of those actors that you could tell was destined for so much more. he died a year younger than dean at the age of 23, yet because river began his career as a child actor he has a few more screen credits to his name. his big break came in the classic coming of age film, the movie is one of those rare examples of a kid centric film from which virtually every young actor went on to have some form of success in later life. then in 1991, by which time `river phoenix`was in his twenties, he won the role of mike in `my own private idaho`he recieved critical praise for his performance, which looked to be the launching pad for his adult acting career, tragically two years later, before he really had the chance to build off this praise, `river phoenix`died of a drug overdose.

The author of this article "Why can't women time travel?", published at The Guardian, doesn"t watch Continuum or Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, obviously tongue

From The Terminator to Back to the Future to Richard Curtis's new film About Time, movies love time travel – but it's strictly for men. Anna Smith wishes she could turn back the clock

I am not surprised, yet once again amazed of the ignorance that writers & authors in newspapers and widespread media in general possess. 

TSCC is probably arguably the best example, and the continuum one is for sure the most recent/current and popular atm. I am sure that 80% of the readers atleast that much of them have instantly thought - DUH. 

But it's sad that there are so many more examples than that. The time guardian with Princess Leia is just 1 of the long list that started way back, tho I am sure there are tons of examples that date even earlier than this. 
One more I can think of is Time Cop with Van Damme.

`marvel says movies are planned through 2021` one of the biggest reasons marvel studios is dominating the landscape of comic book movies is its strategy. the studio releases films in `phases` planning their next films years in advance to allow time to select the right writers, directors and cast. and now marvel studios president kevin feige has revealed that they`ve got films planned all the way through 2021.  feige stated i could arguably say what we`re planning for the year 2021. `will that happen` i dont know but what we planned for 2015 in 2006 is happening. and what do they have in 2015. `the avengers age of ultron` and `ant-man` -  which means they planned these films nine years in advance, feige went on to tease new characters and standalone films. five years ago, looking at our plan, we knew that if `avengers` was going to work, the movies had to stand alone. now we have to prove to the studio that we`re more than just these five characters, these five franchises.

`the walking dead` season 3 blu-ray goes behind the scenes with michonne`s pets. `the walking dead` season 4 will shamble out its first episode, `30 days without an accident` on october 13, leaving plenty of time to re-watch season 3 and check out the special features from the august 27 blu-ray and dvd release, our latest look at `the walking dead` season 3 highlights the gory process it took to bring one of michonne`s `danai gurira` most iconic images to life, or un-life as it were, in making the katana-wielding warrior`s `pets` as it turns out, more practical FX work went into making michonne`s jawless, armless walker companions, `who have their own tragic history outside the show` than we might have thought. indeed the actor`s arms were `hacked off` by wearing blue sleeves to remove in post production, thought the visceral effect of removing their jaws was actually achieved by a makeup and perspective trick that left the performers virtually blind. complicated or what,

have warner bros. found their batman for `man of steel` sequel. this week we`ve seen a number of actors rumoured for the role of an `older` batman/bruce wayne, who`ll play a major part in `zack snyder`s  upcoming `man of steel` sequel. names like matthew goode, ryan gosling, jeffrey dean morgan, josh brolin, and gerard butler, have all been mentioned. however, a mysterious tweet was posted only an hour or so ago that as now mysteriously disappeared `or been forcibly removed. it came from the british actor and professional martial artist scott adkins personal twitter acount. `some big news fans, warner brothers have approached scott adkins to audition to be the new batman and he has http.//fb.me/ lpzripfey we`re unsure if this is a playful link to appease fans who recently ran an online campaign to see adcins cast as the caped crusader or if he`s indeed landed the role but may have been asked by the studio to remove the message. he`s perhaps best known to the mainstream for roles in the expendables 2 and zero dark thirty but with his skills but he`s also an accomplished stuntman so its possible he could done the cowl as the ass-kicking alter-ego of the actor ultimately cast as bruce wayne. we await with interest but with snyder`s track record of turning relative unknown/rising actors `butler in 300 and henry cavill in his superman reboot into superstars, it`s possible.

`avatar` will now come in book form just in time for the sequels. are you tired of `avatar` yet well, you might be very soon. `james cameron` has just tapped a novelist to write four books based on the film and its three upcoming sequels, just in case four movies weren`t enough for you, the demanding and adoring public who so clearly wanted this. cameron hired science-fiction novelist `steven charles gould` jumper` which became a movie starring `hayden christensen` when studios were still trying to make `hayden christensen` happen, to pen four `avatar` books to coincide with `avatar 2` 3 `and 4. the novels will be based upon the films, while also expanding on the world and giving even more details about how blue aliens connect their hair and do magic.
