Wait, What?! Syfy NOT Moving Forward With ‘Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome’

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome

This is one of those surreal moments in life, the likes of which no geek wants to experience.

While writing up a short piece for the the awesome first trailer for Syfy’s Battlestar Galactica prequel, Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, I went to find out when this exciting new series was going to finally premiere. The answer I found was: never. It’s being reported that Syfy has decided NOT to move forward with the show after years of development.

As it turns out, the “trailer” was just a demo reel set to Trent Reznor and Karen O’s “Immigrant Song” cover from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo that was shown at WonderCon. Syfy apparently thought it over for a long time, but ultimately decided it was not in their best interest (who cares what the fans want, right?) to continue forward with the property as a series. This might not, however, mean that we’ll never see Blood & Chrome.

You can read why there’s still some hope to see this and check out the fast-paced first “trailer” by clicking on over to the other side now.

Guillermo del Toro Hulk

We haven’t heard a whole lot about the new TV series based on The Incredible Hulk currently being developed by Hellboy and Pan’s Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro and Battlestar Galactica executive producer David Eick. And, unfortunately, we’ll have to continue waiting for something juicy.

But Mr. del Toro did take the time out of working on his next film, Pacific Rim, to drop a little update on Del Toro Films, the writer, director, and producer’s official fansite.

You can check out what he had to say below.

Guillermo Del Toro & ‘Battlestar Galactica’ Co-Creator David Eick To Unite For ‘Incredible Hulk’ TV Show

If the initial news that ABC Studios and Marvel TV were developing a new live-action television series based on the comic book superhero, The Incredible Hulk, wasn’t enough to have you jumping up and down with excitement, well…this just might help.

Deadline is reporting that visual mastermind Guillermo del Toro and David Eick, who helped create, develop, write, and produce Battlestar Galactica with Ronald D. Moore, are joining creative forces to help bring this new Incredible Hulk incarnation to life.

The duo will work together to craft the perfect pilot storyline, which Eick will write the script for and del Toro might just direct…if his ridiculous schedule allows him to, of course. Del Toro will also oversee the design of the Hulk himself, and how they’ll take previous versions of the character and utilize them in creating their own vision of the massive, green hero. Even better, word is that the Hulk will not be all CGI as we’re used to seeing in movies these days. Instead, they’ll use a combination of prosthetics, CGI, and puppetry to attempt to deliver the ultimate new visual embodiment of this intimidating force.

SyFy & Ronald D. Moore Thinking Up More ‘Battlestar Galactica’ Spinoffs

BSG

If you’re not watching the first season run of Caprica, then you are truly missing out on a great new TV show. Folks who want or expect it to be Battlestar Galactica — the beloved series for which Caprica is a prequel to — will for the most part be disappointed, but for anyone open to a new kind of show set in that world, it’s really starting to stand up on its own two man-made legs.

Due to the undying popularity of Galactica and the growing popularity of Caprica, not to mention the spinoff movies that have been produced so far, it comes as no surprise that SyFy has a desire to create yet another spinoff series, and is exploring any possible options that there may be with Executive Producer Ronald D. Moore (and probably David Eick).

REMINDER: Unseen ‘Caprica’ Episodes Start Tonight!

Caprica

Because the pilot for Battlestar Galactica prequel series Caprica was released as a movie in what seems like a long, long time ago (Read: DVD Review: ‘Caprica’), it didn’t even feel like the show began last week. In case you missed it, the show did indeed start last week, and if you haven’t yet done so, you should find the pilot episode and watch it immediately.

Now that the pilot for this new adventure from BSG masterminds Ronald D. Moore and David Eick is done and over, that can only mean one thing: a wealth of brand new treasures in the creationism of Cylons as we know them! That’s right, tonight begins the first of the all-new episodes that we’ll see during the show’s maiden season voyage. It will take over from the epic ending point of the movie, and continue us on as Daniel Graystone digs deeper into his dark and revolutionary discovery and his daughter Zoe gets used to her new existence.

Click over to read the series’ synopsis and to check out a cool trailer for the post-pilot episodes of Caprica that we’re about to see, complete with appearances by Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s James Marsters and universally-popular funnyman, Patton Oswalt.

Watch Now: Pilot Episode For ‘Battlestar Galactica’ Prequel ‘Caprica’

Caprica

The pilot episode for Caprica, the new Battlestar Galactica prequel series, isn’t set to debut on SyFy until January 22, 2010; but this doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to wait any longer. If you wish it, you can either go and buy the full movie (Read: DVD Review: ‘Caprica’), which was released a while back and will be edited down to become the pilot episode, OR you can stay here and watch the entire pilot episode right this very moment! This isn’t the exact cut that will be used for the debut, but it is close enough for those of you who just can’t wait any longer.

As you can read in the review linked above, I enjoyed the beginning of the series quite a lot. Watching it while still depressed over the loss of Galactica gave it a tough challenge to overcome, and while it’s highly unlikely that it will ever be anywhere near what BSG was, that doesn’t mean that it won’t be a great and compelling new show. And knowing producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick, it will also have many connections to its predecessor for us to mine and ponder over.

Click on over for a full synopsis and to watch the entire Caprica pilot episode right now. Also, the image above is a new poster from the show which you can click to check out in full!

DVD Review: ‘Battlestar Galactica: The Plan’

Battlestar Galactica: The Plan DVDBattlestar Galactica: The Plan
Director: Edward James Olmos
Starring: Dean Stockwell, Rick Worthy, Tricia Helfer, Grace Park, Edward James Olmos, Michael Trucco, Kate Vernon, Callum Keith Rennie, Aaron Douglas, Michael Hogan, Rekha Sharma, Katee Sackhoff, James Callis
Universal Studios
Release Date: October 27, 2009

I don’t want to be human! I want to see gamma rays. I want to hear x-rays, and I want to smell dark matter. I want to reach out with something other than these prehensile paws and feel the solar wind of a supernova flowing over me. I’m a machine, and I could know much more.

Battlestar Galactica: The Plan is the third prequel movie that has been made within the realms of the brilliant Ronald D. Moore and David Eick re-imagining of Battlestar Galactica. The others were Razor and Caprica (which is more of a spinoff and setup for its own new series set to begin in 2010), and they offer us a deeper look into the many stories that we never saw as we journeyed through the wonderful five-season run. While Razor concentrated on another Battlestar ship and added many details to one of the stories we briefly saw in the series, The Plan is a unique and even odd kind of animal that takes us to many different points from the show.

To be completely honest, there’s not really a firm story here, but more of a completely alternative perspective to the intense and familiar events of the series. Do not think that that means that there is no story at all, though — there certainly is, and the more you think about the new things that you see within the film, the more you related them to the overall story, and this is where this movie really works well. The Plan actually plays out almost like the deleted scenes in your DVD special features section, which is kind of strange, but again, unique in its own little way.

SDCC 09: ‘Caprica’ Has Easter Eggs For ‘BSG’ Fans

Caprica2Caprica, the prequel spin-off series of Battlestar Galactica, will have its share of “Easter eggs” and nods to BSG along the way but will ultimately stand on its own, according to creators Ronald D. Moore and David Eick at a San Diego Comic-Con panel.

Some of these “Easter eggs” would be using some of the same scenes found in Battlestar, such as the Opera House that appeared in President Rosalin’s visions of the final five Cylons.

“We’re not trying to give you Battlestar. I think it would be a shot of pain to do that,” Moore said, adding that the show would have its own roots.

“It is like Battlestar in the sense that the answers are never what you expect them to be… but there is more potential for mass appeal because this is Rome before the fall,” said Eick. “It’s much more like our modern world.”
