SXSW 2018: HBO's Westworld Panel #1

With the return of HBO’s Westworld coming sometime in April, fans of the smash hit show crowded the Austin Convention Center ballroom during SXSW 2018 in hopes that its stars and showrunners might offer hints of what’s to come. And they weren’t disappointed.

The panel was moderated by WIRED’s Jason Tanz, who introduced showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, and stars Evan Rachel Wood (Dolores Abernathy), Thandie Newton (Maeve Millay), James Marsden (Teddy Flood), and Jeffrey Wright (Bernard/Arnold) to the stage.

Gym Buddies Internet Plan

I think we can all agree, the rise of fitness-minded products, services, and trendy exercise activities (like goat yoga or punk rock aerobics) is a topic that’s rife with potential for ridicule and humor.

That’s also the basis behind new web series Gym Buddies, which follows the tale of Aparna (Nikita Redkar), a social-media obsessed millennial stereotype in her 20s, as she sets out on a huge healthy lifestyle change prompted by a recent breakup. She enlist her best friend Quinn (Chelsea Lane) to be her designated gym bud, to which Quinn begrudgingly agrees to.

You can check out the first three (of five) episodes below, including the most recent musical episode “Internet Plan.”

Syfy's Krypton

Creators of the upcoming Syfy series Krypton were on hand at DC’s pop-up SXSW store this weekend to share what fans can expect from a Superman TV show, which doesn’t actually include Superman himself.

For those living under a rock, Krypton is a prequel series set about 200 years before the explosion of the planet Krypton, which comic geeks will know is the event that led to baby Kal-El to be sent off in a rocket headed for Earth. As such, the show will focus on Superman’s grandfather Seg-El, father Jor-El, and a smattering of characters from the greater DC universe. And since the planet Krypton orbits a red sun, Kryptonians won’t exactly have the sort of powers we’re used to seeing in Metropolis, so to speak. Still, Krypton’s show creators explained that this makes for fertile ground when it comes to storytelling.

SXSW 2018 10th Annual BBQ Crash Course

Anyone who knows me knows that I can’t resist good barbecue — or any barbecue for that matter. It’s my Achilles Heel, my downfall. So when I had the opportunity to attend the 10th annual BBQ Crash Course at Austin’s South By Southwest Festival (SXSW), I leapt at the chance.

A little context: I’m a Los Angeles native, and while I often smoke my own barbecue, I’ve never had authentic Texas BBQ before. I had no idea what I was in for.

While past reboots of Superman have put a greater focus on the Man of Steel’s life as reporter Clark Kent, newly hired DC Comics writer Brian Michael Bendis’ take on the character will be closely tied to the ideals of good journalism, the scribe explained during a panel at this year’s SXSW.

“I actually spent the day shadowing an Oregonian [journalist], just to show you how important the daily planet is to the stories we’ll be telling,” Bendis told Geeks Of Doom in response to a question about how the current climate of “fake news” and misinformation currently plaguing society might impact the storytelling. “On top of that, Journalism [is] under siege in my lifetime like it’s never been before.”

SXSW 2018 Ready Player One Experience

It may be 2018 in Austin, Texas, but in one corner in the midst of SXSW, it’s Columbus, Ohio in the year 2045. That’s the setting of Steven Spielberg’s new film, Ready Player One, based on the smash hit novel by Ernie Cline. The Warner Bros. media team transformed an Austin nightspot into the futuristic setting of the film for the interactive festival.

The thing about SXSW is that it makes you superhumanly exhausted. It’s why DC probably pulled out all the stops with its presence at the event this year, including showing up with Batman’s signature ride(s), a sneak peek at Syfy’s upcoming Superman prequel series, free coffee (because of course), and so much more. Check out details from the event here below.
