Caprica is toast. Syfy has announced that the low-rated Battlestar Galactica prequel has been canceled.

Said Mark Stern, EVP of Original Programming at Syfy:

“Unfortunately, despite its obvious quality, Caprica has not been able to build the audience necessary to justify a second season.”

This will not have any effect on the announcement a couple days back about the newly greenlit ‘BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: BLOOD & CHROME’. SyFy probably timed the cancellation as a good news/bad news thing for BSG fans and RONALD D. MOORE.

Fox Filmed Entertainment Chairmen Jim Gianopulos and Tom Rothman announced today that Academy Award-winning filmmaker James Cameron has agreed to make Avatar 2 and 3 as his next films.

Cameron, who had always viewed “Avatar” as the creation of a new world and mythology, will begin work on the scripts early next year with an eye towards commencing production later in 2011. Cameron will decide if he will shoot the films back-to-back after he completes the scripts, but the release of the first, as yet untitled sequel, is targeted for December 2014, with the third film contemplated for a December 2015 release.

‘SLINGERS’ Viral/Sizzle Reel Posted – Following In The Footsteps Of ‘DISTRICT 9’ And ‘PARANORMAL ACTIVITY’ – THEE Next Big Science Fiction Television Series You’ve Never Heard Of (Yet)??

December 8, 2009

Still From 'SLINGERS'


Source: Sizemore.co.uk

Maybe. But don’t look for it on television. Not yet anyways. At the very least it gets the award for thee longest THRALL WORLD headline EVER…

Following in the footsteps of ‘District 9’ and ‘Paranormal Activity’ comes ‘SLINGERS’ – a sort of interstellar OCEAN’S 11 complete with the snappy dialogue and wit of say SNATCH.

THRALL WORLD stumbled on to this “Sizzle Reel” via complete accident. It’s basically a trailer made by creator Mike Sizemore and the plan is to get picked up as a full-blown television series. The strategy mirrors the manner in which ‘DISTRICT 9’ (which started out as the short ‘ALIVE IN JOBURG’) came to the attention of Peter Jackson and – even more recently – director Fede Alvarez got noticed and had his short, ‘PANIC ATTACK’, picked up by none other than SAM RAIMI of EVIL DEAD/SPIDERMAN fame.

Plot synopsis: Slingers is set in the year 2960 A.D., following mankind’s first interplanetary war. Humanity is now clustered into a finite, but still vast section of the universe known as Enclosed Space. Humanity won the war with an aggressive alien enemy, but at a cost. The way back to Earth is now cut off by an impassable barrier – a side effect of the blast that finally pushed the enemy back.

The show takes its name from a group of people thrown together on board an experimental spacecraft that is capable of Slinging itself to any point in space. In theory it’s the only craft capable of getting home. In reality the crew are using it to carry out a series of high tech heists and get even with those who are now exploiting their positions in the post war hierarchy.

Dominic ‘DM’ Monroe, a special ops war veteran becomes the de facto leader of this small team of thieves who rail against the decision by military command to just ‘stay where they are and make the best of it’. They’re determined to get home and if that means breaking a few rules and picking up a lot of enemies along the way then so be it.

Keep up with the latest at Sizemore’s official site HERE.

JAMES CAMERON’s ‘AVATAR’: Trailer Posted, Official Movie Site Goes Live

Caught the trailer in the theater before ‘SAW VI’. Cameron’s back is (again) against the wall with the rumored $200-300 million+ budget for the movie. But in his defense he had the same budget issues with TITANIC and then knocked it out of the ballpark with the stunning result.

The bottom line? THRALL WORLD couldn’t help but notice how incredibly REAL the aliens looked in a good portion of the trailer. It really was remarkable and will probably make or break the movies success. No SHREK or HULK cartoons here. They have upped the photo-realistic CGI to an eye-bending level and made THRALL WORLD a believer and we can’t help but wonder how much more of a difference watching it in 3D will make.

But we do hope the “going native” plot (a la DANCES WITH WOLVES, TORAL RECALL, THE LAST SAMURAI) has more behind it than the main character sympathizing with the aliens because an “evil” corporation wants a valuable gem which only seems to exist right underneath the aliens home.

Set to open in conventional 3D theaters and IMAX 3D on December 18th, 2009 and written and directed by James Cameron (TERMINATOR, TITANIC), ‘AVATAR’ stars; Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver, Michelle Rodriguez, and Giovanni Ribisi, Zoe Saldana, Joel David Moore, CCH Pounder, Peter Mensah, Laz Alonso, Wes Studi, Stephen Lang and Matt Gerald.

Universal Pictures has set Bryan Singer to direct and produce a feature version of “Battlestar Galactica.”

[Bryan Singer was to be invovled with the series reimagining before] Ronald D. Moore came on as executive producer and oversaw the 73-episode series relaunch, which had a critically acclaimed run on Syfy.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Moore would be invited to write the screenplay, but it is clear that Singer will put his own creative stamp on the project as the studio indicates that the film will be “[another] complete re-imagination.”

Read more HERE.

THRALL WORLD believes that it will be extremely difficult for anyone to do in two hours of film what R.D. Moore’s incredibly rich and textured BSG reimagining succeeded in doing in its 70+ episode television run.
