Terra Nova

Welcome back to This Week In Discs! Lots of new releases hitting shelves today, but only two of them are worth buying! Which ones are they? Keep reading to find out along with the skinny on sixteen other titles including Andy Garcia’s epic For Greater Glory, Fox’s Terra Nova series, Greta Geriwg’s Lola Versus, the unfinished horrors of Munger Road and more. As always, if you see something you like, click on the image to buy it. The Loved Ones Months after a teenager (Xavier Samuel) loses his father in a car accident his efforts to put the past behind him are interrupted by madness. It seems Lola (Robin McLeavy), a quiet and unassuming classmate, has developed a crush on him and she won’t take no for an answer. What follows is a brutal, suspenseful and unpredictable thriller as he’s forced to find a strength he didn’t know he possessed if he wants to survive. This Australian thriller from writer/director Sean Byrne gets just about everything right including a wonderful cast, sharp editing and wonderfully twisted narrative. Good on Paramount for releasing it unrated, but they suck for the lack of Blu-ray. If you have a region-free Blu-ray player skip this edition and pick up the import Blu from AmazonUK instead. If not, buy this now and enjoy the hell out of it. [Extras: Interviews]

What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a nightly movie news and editorial column that doesn’t ask much of you, just your affection. That’s right, it’s completely free — all you need to do is tune in. That’s not a bad deal, friends. We begin with another shot from A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas. Because why the hell not. Warner Bros. released a bunch of promotional photos for the ‘stravaganza, due out November 4, expanding a universe in which Neil Patrick Harris is still alive, Paula Garces is still gorgeous and Patton Oswalt is Santa Claus. Oh yes, this is happening.

The sixth annual New York Comic-Con was host to its largest audience to date at over 100,000 people. And it’s thanks to that audience the convention got to deliver on some of the biggest events of the year in the world of geekdom. With the massive weekend now over, we take a look back the five biggest things that came out of NYCC 2011.

This past summer I was surprisingly blown away by the Steven Spielberg produced alien-invasion drama Falling Skies. Part of the surprise came from the fact that my anticipation for the series was extremely low. All I had known prior to watching the first episode was whatever information was in the trailer that dropped from TNT a month before it began airing. That case is the exact opposite when it comes to the much, much more high profile sci-fi show from camp Spielberg, Terra Nova. Especially now that Falling Skies cemented Spielberg’s return television (and the first time since ER that he has put out a series that’s been widely praised across the board), all eyes are on Terra Nova to see if lightning can strike twice. But unlike Falling Skies whose behind the camera talent is mostly full of non-names (outside of the offices of studio heads and agent assistants), Terra Nova boasts some heavy hitter talent such as Craig Silverstein (who created the new iteration of Nikita on The CW), 24 heavy-hitter Jon Cassar and Brannon Braga whose credits include Star Trek: The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager and the highly under-rated FlashForward. The point being that there are a lot of hands in the pot of a show that is either the next LOST or this season’s The Event. So it’s time to figure out which one it is.

This week begins what will be a host of premiers over the next month for all the new and returning shows of the fall season. Regardless of what your thoughts may be on this year’s crop, one can’t deny that the main theme across the board seems to be diversity. Shows from all walks of life are dancing (sometimes with stars) around the schedule this year, and perhaps it would be a good idea to pick out some favorites that you should definitely give at least a DVR record. So here are five new and five returning shows that you should be checking out.

Earlier today FOX unveiled their fall schedule which I’m sure left us all excited for the prospect of a new Abrams show. And just to keep that excitement alive they have now released some trailers for all their new series, including Terra Nova, Napoleon Dynamite, and Alcatraz. So without any ado whatsoever, here are the latest promos for all of FOX’s new prime time programming:

FOX has released a brand new trailer for the upcoming Steven Spielberg sci-fi/action/adventure series Terra Nova. The new trailer features never before seen footage of future earth and the dinosaur infested past. I’ll say this much, FOX is really marketing this show right. Releasing little by little. Teasing us with only two shots of dinosaurs and filling the trailers with more and more scenes of the Dystopian future that will be seen in the pilot. Clearly the show writers are operating under the philosophy “less is more.” Because the less I see of the dark and dirty future earth, the more I’m intrigued by it. And the same goes for the really good looking CG dinosaurs that are running around in the past.

Sunday night FOX put on the yearly spectacle known as The Super Bowl. And despite botched national anthems and crappy half time shows, the 45th football throw down managed to set the record for the highest viewership of any television program, ever in the history of television. The number? One hundred and eleven million people. This also marks the first time any network, in this case FOX, has crossed the one hundred million mark in a single prime time evening. Now I know what you’re saying to yourself, “so what? It was the f’n Super Bowl, of course it was high.” And I agree, but I’m not here to focus on the Super Bowl, but rather what that number represents.

There was a plethora of TV spots to behold last night at the Super Bowl, and while the Transformers: Dark of The Moon spot took the cake for me as best spot of the night, the one I was looking forward to the most wasn’t a movie at all, it was the first footage of the new FOX action/adventure/scifi show, Terra Nova. My first thought after watching this was, Avatar: The Series. But that probably just has to do with the fact that Stephen Lang appears to be playing the same character. But once the Avatar notions left my brain, I began to both appreciate and question what I was seeing. Check it out below.

Did you know that Thursday nights is Ladies Night here on Movie News After Dark? Yes it is, friends. It simply means that ladies get half off their door price, which as you know is zero. So I guess I’m not sure what the bonus is for ladies on Thursday nights. Perhaps it has something to do with the phases of the moon and my extremely manish musk. Or maybe is has something to do with another round of awesome clips from the world of movie news!

This morning, Fox announced its 2010-2011 primetime schedule, adding to the onslaught of television news this week as networks release their upfronts. Making a good first impression for Fox was Terra Nova, a show that looks like an extension of Avatar.
