Hey, would you look at that! Actual science fiction on SyFy? Who knew they could do that?

Here’s how their new show Ascension is described:

In 1963, the U.S. government launched a covert space mission sending hundreds of men, women and children on a century-long voyage aboard the starship Ascension to populate a new world. Nearly 50 years into the journey, as they approach the point of no return, a mysterious murder of a young woman causes the ship’s population to question the true nature of their mission.

Ascension stars everybody’s favorite Cylon, Tricia Helfer, and a bunch of others I’ve never heard of. Also intriguing is that this is a mini-series (lasting 6 hours), so SyFy doesn’t have to sully their network with more actual SciFi than is necessary. Yes, I’ll tune in to see if it’s any good.

TRAILER: Automata

I, for one, welcome our robot overlords.

Well, I would if they the were the ones shown in the new trailer for Automata, an upcoming film starring Antonio Banderas, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Melanie Griffith, Dylan McDermott and Robert Forster. (And especially if any of them were voiced by Javier Bardem, like one is in the film.)

The trailer indicates that the film’s robots adhere to their own version of Asimov’s Laws of Robotics. Hopefully this makes for a more interesting story. Even so, this is a movie I’d like to see.

TRAILER: SyFy’s 12 Monkeys

SyFy seems to be on a mission to shed some of it’s, well, less than stellar reputation with regards to quality SF on its network. They’ve recently announced series based on S.A.

TRAILER: X-Men: Days of Future Past

Here’s a trailer that manages to get me excited about the movie. It’s the latest trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past and though it uses some tired tropes of the genre (I can’t help but think about every 8th Star Trek episode), I can’t help but wanna see this.

How about you?

Here’s the description:

Bonded by war. United by hope. See the X-Men face their greatest challenge together in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Jupter Ascending (starring Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, and Sean Bean) gets another trailer.

To refresh your memory on the plot…

Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along – her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.

Theatrical Trailer: Godzilla

The Godzilla reboot is almost here — it arrives in May 2014 — and a new theatrical trailer has just dropped.

It looks OK. Nothing is jumping out at me and screaming “Gotta see this!” Even so, I love what modern special effects can do with city-wide destruction.

I loved the film From Dusk Till Dawn. It was like two movies in one and, not knowing what to expect, it hit me like a freight train.

Trailer: Godzilla (2014)

So there’s another Godzilla film on the horizon. Here’s the pitch:

An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

I suppose this does look epic, if by “epic” they mean “big budget”. The good news is that Matthew Broderick is nowhere in sight.
