Alcatraz TV Series Looks Prisony.

Here’s the very brief trailer for Fox’s new sci-fi drama series Alcatraz ,which execs hope will plug that annoying gap which Lost left behind.

Produced by JJ Abrams and starring Sam Neill, Sarah Jones, Hurley from Lost and reads like an extended episode of Fringe:

 302 men go missing from the prison back in a foggy night in 1963 and for some unknown reason they return to the present day not a single day older. That’s when Hurley, who’s an Alcatraz expert and comic book enthusiast, (really?), is called upon who works with Det. Rebecca Madsen (Sarah Jones) but shadowy government agent Emerson Huaser, (Sam Neill) tries to impede their investigation into the mystery.

Nothing adds to that edge-of-your-seat atmosphere of a mystery drama than having the lead characters root around in a musty basement full of boxed files for clues. Alcatraz is scheduled to air in the UK in January.

 

Begad! Trailer For Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.

The Interweb is apparently melting down quicker than a power station in Japan today thanks to the release of the first official trailer for the latest Mission Impossible film.

Why the big fuss? Well this installment is directed by a guy called Brad Bird who pretty much only directed animated films up until now including Pixar movies Ratatouille and The Incredibles and The Iron Giant for Warner Brothers. Ghost Protocol is also written by J.J. Abrams, (Cloverfield, Star Trek, Lost, Super 8), and stars Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Jeremy Renner, Sawyer from Lost, the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire host from Slumdog Millionaire and unfortunately Tom Cruise.

The old 'turning round in mid-air, whilst falling from a tall building, to shoot back up at the bad guys', move.

The film’s official synopsis reads:

‘bang, bang, boom, pew, pew, pew, pew, (tom cruise running ridiculously fast for a man of his age), crack, wallop, cool gadget sequence, nice tits, fast car chase, grappling moves that sound like sheets flapping in the wind on the clothes line, more running, hushed toned delivery of cheesy one liners, a dash more tits, kablooey! !

Lost Actor Weds 16 Year-Old.

She's how old?

He played Horace Goodspeed in the sci-fi series Lost, and has also appeared in The Green Mile and The X Files and now actor Doug Hutchison is appearing all over the Internet because the 51 year-old went and got himself hitched to a 16 year-old.

Courtney Stodden is apparently a pop singer, (we use the word ‘apparantly’ for reasons which will become rapidly obvious when we watch her music video below), who wed the actor in Las Vegas this week and although the happy couple intend to share the rest of their lives with each other they are aware of the controversy surrounding their marriage. The couple released the following statement:

“We’re aware that our vast age difference is extremely controversial. But we’re very much in love and want to get the message out there that true love can be ageless.”

Like most of you out there we find this story completely shocking and we are outraged…that anyone in their right mind would believe that Courtney Stodden is 16 years-old, she doesn’t look a day past 35.
