First Peek At Epic New Starz King Arthur Series ‘Camelot’

The Movie God   |  @   |

It’s a fantastic time to be alive for those of us who feed off TV/movies/games that are set in a time where cars and technology and guns were nonexistent, and people survived by the blade of their sword, the gallop of their horse, and the light of a flame. This is especially true when it comes to TV, where these types of shows weren’t very common.

Now, in a time where the best TV series you can see are on par with (if not better than) the best Hollywood movies being made, we’re beginning to see many more titles in this genre. These types of shows can be found on channels like HBO, Showtime, and Starz, and they don’t restrict or censor their content. Almost anything goes, all is fair, and it’s some of the grittiest, graphic, and most realistic content we as viewers could ask for. It’s hard to even watch regular TV anymore!

Recent and current titles that have fit this mold include HBO’s Rome, Showtime’s The Tudors, and Starz’ Spartacus: Blood and Sand (as well as their mini-series, The Pillars of the Earth), and it does not end there. One of the most anticipated upcoming shows is Game of Thrones on HBO, which is based on George R.R. Martin’s popular A Song of Ice and Fire books. And Starz also has another on the way titled Camelot, which you can get your first good look at right here!

Click on over to the other side to read a synopsis and check out the first look video for the new Starz series, Camelot. Whether you love these types of shows or not, the show looks like it could be great and this preview is well-worth a few minutes of your time.

Sword in the Stone

Starz is one of the best channels on TV and On Demand for watching movies, but it looks like they’re more and more ready every day to really jump into the original series game with HBO and Showtime.

The network already has their show Party Down doing well, and their new series Spartacus: Blood and Sand is currently winning new fans every single week, and already has itself a second season ordered and set to begin production some time after the maiden season ends. Now, according to reports, Starz has greenlighted a new series called Camelot, which will be a new take on the tales of King Arthur.

Chris Chibnall, who has been a writer on the highly-popular shows Torchwood and Doctor Who, has been tapped as a writer for Camelot, and Graham King will produce along with Morgan O’Sullivan and Michael Hirst, who created Showtime’s The Tudors.

Comic Review: Muppet King Arthur #1

Muppet King Arthur #1Muppet King Arthur #1
Issue 1 of 4
Written by Paul Benjamin and Patrick Storck
Art by Patrick Storck
Cover Art by David Peterson (Cover A); Dave Alvarez (Cover B)
BOOM! Studios
Price: $2.99; Release date: February 10, 2010

Do you like Arthurian legend? How about The Muppets?

BAM! Here’s a comic for you: Muppet King Arthur #1, the first of four issues in the new BOOM! Studios comic book series from Paul Benjamin and Patrick Storck.

This series sees the famous Muppets gang in Great Britain during the Dark Ages where our favorite green guy Kermit is thrust in the role as King Arthur after he pulls the sword Excalibur from the stone, ushering in the legendary Arthurian times.

Being released on the publisher’s BOOM! Kids line implies this comic book is for children, but that’s only partially true, as I found that some of the humor was clearly adult, namely the references to modern-day politics. But yes, the kids will love it too, because the Muppets are in action, and Fozzie Bear never fails to … WOCKA WOCKA … slip in a corny joke.

Excalibur

Earlier this month, it was confirmed that Bryan Singer would be be producing and directing a feature-length movie based on the old Battlestar Galactica TV show (Read: Bryan Singer To Make Another Run At ‘Battlestar Galactica’). Now comes word that Singer is piling projects on to his plate wit the announcement that he is also developing a remake of the 1981 film Excalibur for Warner Brothers. Just the same as with the the Galactica project, Singer will produce the remake, with the opportunity to direct on the table.

The film will be another one of the countless takes on the tale of King Arthur, the legendary sword set in stone, the love affair between his wife Guenevere and Sir Lancelot, the Knights of the Round Table and their quest for the fabled Holy Grail, and the arrival of Arthur’s evil son Mordred, birthed by his half-sister, Morgana. All of this overseen by the powerful wizard Merlin.

Video: Want More Fantasy On TV? ‘Merlin’ Miniseries Comes To NBC This Month

The Movie God   |  @   |

On June 21, 2009 at 8PM EST, the hit BBC miniseries Merlin premieres in the U.S. on NBC — and not a moment too soon. We live in a world where TV is ruled by disgusting amounts of cop/authority dramas and hospital dramas and what we really need, is some good old fantasy! With Merlin, we will get just that.

As it is known, Merlin is the legendary wizard who is most-often associated with the tales of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table in Camelot. The truth to the character is hard to even put into words. He was first written about in the year 1136 and has shown up in an infinite amount of movies, TV shows, cartoons, games, artworks, and who knows how many other things. Quite simply put: when you think of a wizard, you most likely think of the greatest wizard of them all: Merlin.

So as not to be unoriginal, the creators of this 13-part miniseries, starring Buffy‘s Anthony Head and Michelle Ryan (from the Bionic Woman reboot), have basically rebooted the world and the character to offer many fresh, wonderful new adventures to existing fans, and any new ones that may come.

Click on over to the other side for the miniseries description and to watch the show’s trailer and a bunch of video previews, behind-the-scenes looks, and cast videos.
