Sci Fi News
I have high expectations whenever I hear sibling directors Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski (best known for their work in The Matrix) are attached to anything sci-fi and I can see from the teaser trailer for Jupiter Ascending that I am not going to be disappointed. Check out the jaw dropping video below.
Teaser Trailer: Jupiter Ascending
Jupiter Ascending starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis and Sean Bean is slated to hit theaters July 25th, 2014.
Who knows if hanging from the New Year’s Eve ball in Times Square is in Andrew Garfield’s (Spider-Man) contract, but whoever is behind the mask is causing a commotion in this viral video for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Featurette: The Amazing Spider-Man 2
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field, Martin Sheen, and Dennis Leary is slated to hit theaters May 2, 2014.
One of the most fun things about this time of year is all the great videos people make featuring our favorite geeky icons. Last week we brought you a Star Wars version of “Bohemian Rhapsody”; today it’s our pals from Star Trek The Next Generation whose lines have been adapted, transforming a familiar wintertime song, “Let It Snow”, into a geektastic “Make It So”.
The creator of the video has included a blurb about a game he’s creating, and we’re happy to have you check that out as well:

Poor Wesley. Happy holidays!
David Magee was nominated for an Academy Award for his work on Finding Neverland and was more recently recognized for his screenplay of Life of Pi in 2012. He’s got another fantasic book adaptation in his sights in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair, my second favorite of the series of seven books.
Producers for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair include Mark Gordon, Douglas Gresham, Vincent Sieber for The C.S. Lewis Co. and Michele Wolkoff and Sara Smith for The Mark Gordon Co. This all according to THR who quotes David Magee saying the following about his new venture.
I have always loved The Chronicles of Narnia, and I endlessly imagined myself finding my own passage into Narnia someday. All these years later, I’m getting to fulfill that wish just a little bit by writing the film adaptation of The Silver Chair and could not be more excited about it.
We’ll be sure and keep you posted on the latest for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair.
Sixteen days until Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor! And, apparently, several Daleks and some interesting-looking Cybermen. And Orla Brady looking triumphant and possibly evil. Check out these from the Doctor Who Facebook page:

We are SO READY.
And in other Doctor Who news, Digital Spy reports that Steven Moffat has confirmed Season 8 with Peter Capaldi will not be split in two parts like Matt Smith‘s Season 7 was, with half in the fall and half in the spring. It will likely air all episodes starting in late August or early September, and hopefully on the same day here as in the UK, as those clever people at the BBC and BBC America have been doing lately. Yay!
Doctor Who: The Time of the Doctor, starring Matt Smith, Jenna Coleman, and Peter Capaldi, airs Wednesday, December 25 at 9/8c on BBC America.
Doctor Who Season 8, starring Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman, airs in late 2014 on BBC America.
