At the Stargate 20th Anniversary Panel at San Diego Comic Con, MGM announced a new Stargate series is coming. This series will be called Stargate Origins.
Not a lot of information was given during the panel but we do know a few things. First is Stargate Origins begins filming next month. Next is the lead character will be Catherine Langford. If you remember the movie, Catherine Langford was the woman who hired Daniel Jackson to look into the Stargate in the original movie and it was her father who discovered it. This brings into question where the series falls in the continuity of the franchise as Stargate SG-1 established Catherine did not travel through the Stargate until much later in life. It is possible Stargate Origins is a reboot and the previous three series will no longer be considered canon.
We will try to bring you more information as it becomes available. Until then, what are your thoughts? Are you looking forward to this new Stargate series or would you rather SG-1, Atlantis, and Universe be allowed to stand as they are?
This trailer (included below) shows much more than the initial teaser, giving us a further look at the animation and hints of the story.
In a Twitter poll conducted after last month’s news, we found more of our followers are fans of the 1997 Starship Troopers film than not. Where do you stand? What did you think of the sequels? Are you looking forward to Traitor of Mars? Let us know in the comments or on social media.
Warner Bros has released another trailer for the upcoming Blade Runner sequel, Blade Runner 2049.
Blade Runner 2049 has a star-studded cast, led by Ryan Gosling and the returning Harrison Ford. It is due to be released on October 6th of this year.
The original Blade Runner was somewhat loosely based on the classic Phillip K Dick novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? While there were sequels to that novel (and somewhat to the original film) written, this film is not following their path.
What do you think of the new trailer? Are you looking forward to this movie?

At the end of last week, Entertainment Weekly brought us another first look. This time, it was at the upcoming film adaptation of the Ernest Cline novel Ready Player One.
Ready Player One (the novel) was released in 2011. It depicts a grim future where the world may be on its last legs and many people have dedicated their lives to a contest taking place within an online game. Built upon 80s pop culture references, the book has found a wide audience and is particularly popular among cyberpunk fans.
Steven Spielberg is directing the film adaptation, which is expected to release in spring of 2018.
The Orville, the new Seth MacFarlane sci-fi comedy series on Fox has finally gotten a premiere date. The first episode with be airing on Sunday, September 10th.
The first trailer for the series, included below, was released back in May. The Star Trek influence is hard to miss and some have even said The Orville looks more like a Star Trek series than Star Trek Discovery. Some of the main cast are even Star Trek alumni. Seth MacFarlane himself appeared as a minor but named character on two episodes of Star Trek Enterprise and Penny Johnson Jerald played Kasidy Yates on Star Trek Deep Space Nine.
